Alright, here’s your cue ... sniff out the actresses behind these 5 famous scents!
Citrus grove accord, jasmine, violet, Amazon lily, splashed with rose water atop wrapped in hints of musk, amber and sandalwood.This scent is just as charming and sure to brighten your day, as the actress it was created for. Introduced in 2011at Harrods in London, the fragrance’s namesake worked for over a year perfecting the tranquil floral profile before it’s release. Let’s just say it’s the type of scent you could spritz on before dancing around a fountain late at night in New York City’s West Village with “friends.”
Jennifer Aniston by Jennifer Aniston
A modern and sensuous woody oriental with a heart of luminous mimosa and top notes of pear blossom, bergamot, and fig. In other words, naturally sensual.Introduced in 2009, this casual scent provided an air of lucrative playfulness for the Oscar-winning actress, who for years had created her own fragrances at home by mixing scents. Now not only was she one of the most beautiful women in the world, as deemed by People Magazine, but she had taken over the fragrance industry by ‘storm’ with her first of many scents.
This fruity and floral aroma is created by combining Italian mandarin and wild strawberry with white osmanthus, gardenia and honeysuckle, while a base of sandalwood adds a woody complexity.When introduced in 2010, this fragrance quickly evoked the pure essence of a free-spirited New York City. You know, like sipping Jamba Juice smoothies in Bryant Park while wearing your favorite leopard print skirt and just a simple floral top, just the right amount of quirk to keep the fragrance’s namesake -- and fashionable NYC socialite -- hip.
SJP NYC by Sarah Jessica Parker
Citruses notes of bergamot and neroli mingle with delicate jasmine, lily of the valley and freesia florals atop a bold base of leather, musk, amber and sandalwood.Launched in 2010, this bold but feminine fragrance quickly attracted admirers, almost as quickly as the namesake of the fragrance did when she stepped out onto Wisteria Lane as an adulteress in 2003. This is a scent for a woman who knows what she wants, not a desperate housewife in distress.
Hints of honeydew, mandarin, blood orange, plum, and raspberry dance around notes of musk, violet, white lily and vanilla bean.When this scent was debuted in 2006 it quickly became one of the three best-selling fragrances at U.S. department stores. Now this could quite possibly be due to the cliffhanger of a commercial for the fragrance, which premiered on MTV as a sixty-second cut from a full-music video featuring the fragrance’s namesake. But we’re guessing it had more to do with the youthful innocence of this sweet scent.
