I was out shopping and saw this on sale for a good price. Also came recommended as a top seller. However I'm not a fan. I don't like the smell, it's quite musky and heavy to me. Reminds me of what a mum or an aunty would wear. I prefer sweet, floral and light scents. I'm not gonna keep it.

Having recently fallen back in love with SATC and SJP herself, I knew I had to purchase "Lovely" especially with how affordable it is for such a beautiful perfume. My previous experience with this perfume was me avoiding it, due to it being another "boring" celebrity perfume that i'd briefly sniffed once and wasn't impressed with so never bothered to give it a fair go again, and that was my view for years. Until mothers day this year and I was trying to find a fragrance for my mum, I eventually settled on a Juicy Couture fragrance, but ended up spraying "lovely" onto a tester strip to give it another go and I am so glad I did. Initially I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it and surprised that I ever thought this fragrance was "boring", I hadn't planned on purchasing anything for myself so ended up walking away - tester strip in hand, walked around the store and couldn't stop sniffing it. It reminded me of a beloved fragrance my older sister has years ago - I couldn't and still can't get over how similar it smells and how nice it was to smell that familiar scent again. I ending up caving a purchased a 100ML bottle for about $30 which is a remarkably decent price. Its a light musk - very inoffensive, yet not unnoticeable, its is feminine yet in a classy way, and as SJP describes above its perfect for anyone of any age. I also loved reading about how she created this fragrance and how involved she was with the production. Its quite long lasting and sits upon the skin beautifully, I have received multiple complements on "Lovely" and am making up for lost time with this fragrance.
I don’t normally buy celebrity perfumes as they tend to smell sickeningly too sweet for me. Was sceptical when a friend gave it to me. Turns out it’s rather nice. It’s a semi-masculine perfume, not a girly flowery one. The scent lasts a long time.
Tips: Read the book about how SJP “created” this perfume, it’s fascinating!
Absolutely love this perfume. The fragrance is light and the smell is divine.
This is my second bottle and I have also bought one for miss 11's birthday who kept using mine. I find the smell lasts most of the day and would reapply if I was going out in the evening.
This is an everyday perfume for me and will purchase again.
Developed by Laurent Le Guernec and Clement Gavarry
Top notes - lavender, mandarin orange, bergamot, martini
Middle notes - patchouli, orchid, white pepper
Base notes - woodsy notes, white amber, cedar, salt, musk
Longevity: 7+ hours
Sillage: Radiates around at first but fades into a comforting scent within arms length
On me it starts off as a powdery lavender which turns into a sublime flowery patchouli. Die down is a musky cedar which last for hours. Have to be honest though, I can't even smell a hint of amber, mandarin orange and white pepper which are among the my most loved scent notes. Not to mention salt which I do not like and can't be grateful enough to not smell on me. I sometimes get a hint of bergamot while the perfume is transitioning but mostly do not and I have no idea what martini supposed to smell like.
This was a blind buy like most of my other perfumes but I always check the scent profile according to the perfumer and the buyers and also the longevity before I buy a perfume online. I had such high hopes for this one and it didn't disappointed me at all. Well... that's a small lie since I'm a bit disappointed about it not having strong amber notes, but hey.. I get a strong hit of musk with beloved woodsy notes, so I am a happy camper.
Sillage and longevity of this perfume is way better than average in my opinion. And it is a autumn/ wintery scent that is suitable for the either day or night time wear.
Though it is marketed as a ladies perfume I think it suits men as well due to its die down. I tested it on my hubby and he smelled yummy for hours!
Packaging is sweet, simple and travel friendly. And to summarise my review this perfume is worth of every penny you spend on it.
Tips: Moisturising wherever you want to spray the perfume on will make the perfume last longer. So I also bought the gift pack with the body cream included.
This is the first 'real' perfume I ever got as a present! I was 15 and the fragrance didn't go off until I was 19/20 so lasted about 4-5 years. Before it went off it was a nice subtle feminine scent and not too overpowering. I liked it a lot and wish it had lasted a little longer
I’m a fan of SJP so although I’m not usually into celebrity fragrances I have this one a sniff. I’m glad I did. It’s not too floral or sickly, and has a warm undertone. I find a few squirts last most of the day. The bottle is just as lovely and very classic. A winner.
I could rave about this perfume for days. It’s inexoensive, smells absolutely amazing and does last quite a while however I do reapply as it doesn’t quite last all day. I have repurchased several times. It’s a great perfume to keep in your handbag. Would absolutely purchase again!!!
I am not a huge fan of celebrity fragrances but I thought this one was rather nice.
The bottle is clear so you can see the liquid inside. It has a cute lid which is stays on well and dosent seem to come off in your handbag.
The fragrance itself is quite a subtle and I found I had to re-apply throughout the day. It is floral with a sort of slight hint of musk.
Overall a pleasant fragrance.
When I won my first bulk lots of perfume this one was in my auction that I was bidding on Trade me. I am a fan of Jessica for her fashion and of course her Sex in the City show.
The bottle has a gold band around a round light pink see through bottle with gold lettering. Very pretty. The smell reminds me of a bouquet of vintage roses. It lasts all day long.
I've had my bottle for four months and then gave it away for my mother in law. If your into this kind of floral boquet then this smell would be for you. I had no skin irritations at all. Not sure about individual price because I brought a bulk.
Definately a good prezzy for your mum or sister. The smell just wasn't me.
