Beauty Must-Have: Smell Like Carrie Bradshaw with SJP NYC (Includes Giveaway!)

Back in February, our beloved Sarah Jessica Parker developed a light, fun fragrance inspired by her favorite character, Carrie Bradshaw. The scent, SJP NYC, captures the essence of Carrie: frivolity, freedom, New York, and fabulous style. The scent is impossibly girly, an addictive fruity floral with top notes including Italian mandarin and wild strawberries, heart notes like gardenia and honeysuckle and base notes such as sandalwood and rum mixed with vanilla and musk.  It’s complex, sweet, wild at heart and very Carrie Bradshaw.

I’m personally a fan of the fun packaging, which looks like a mixture of the patterns and bold colors one might find in the character’s legendary closet. I also love that the scent is small enough to fit into your favorite handbag, a necessity for the girl on the go (which most of us are.)

I also love the ad campaign, featured my beloved SJP in a one-of-a-kind Oscar de la Renta original, evoking the wild, untamed spirit of our beloved fashion-forward tv and movie character. One smell and you’ll see what I mean: it’s very Carrie.

You can pick SJP NYC up at your local department store in a variety of sizes and scents, but since it’s Memorial Day and I haven’t done a giveaway in a long time, I’d like to give this to one lucky reader of FSB. That’s right, I’m giving away a 30ml eau de toilette spray of SJP NYC to one lucky reader.

How do you win? Leave a comment below and tell me who your favorite SATC character is and why. I’ll pick one lucky gal on Tuesday morning and we’ll get it shipped right out to you.

After all, since you’re going to see the movie this weekend, you might as well have some fabulous perfume to commemorate your viewing of Sex and the City 2. Get Carried away and enter to win now!

    Hmm…I have to save Miranda is always my fav. She's snarky, sarcastic but always down to business and that reminds me of me.

    My favorite character is Miranda. I love how business yet still fun she is. I also love how loyal a friend she is as well. She is sassy, professional, funny, and sarcastic – a little bit like me.
