If you’re looking for your next spring scent, you’ll want to try the latest from Sarah Jessica Parker–SJP NYC. While SJP’s previous launches have been all about expressing herself, this one is actually inspired by her most famous character, Carrie Bradshaw! SJP NYC is a vibrant, sweet mix of fruit and floral notes that I thought were really great for spring. It’s sweet without being overwhelming, and I think the fruit notes really add a touch of freshness.

The bottle itself is simple glass, and it’s housed in a small pink canister covered with the patterns and prints inspired by Carrie’s closet. The scent and packaging are definitely very Carrie Bradshaw. SJP says that this fragrance is meant to evoke a sense of fun and whimsy. “It’s about mixing things up and breaking rules, all of the things I like about fashion,” she says. SJP NYC is $25-$49, depending on size, and is much more affordable than, say, the amazing Oscar de la Renta dress she’s wearing above. Keep reading for the note breakdown!

  • Top notes: Italian mandarin, white osmanthus, wild red strawberries
  • Heart notes: Gardenia, honeysuckle, mimosa, red rose damascenia
  • Base notes: Sandalwood, vanilla absolute, rum flavor, creamy musk

    What’s going on the bottle design? It looks like they tried to copy Betsey Johnson.

    I haven’t seen the Betsey Johnson perfume in person, but from pictures they look very different. SJP NYC’s packaging is a pink circular plastic canister with slivers of different prints and patterns. The bottle itself is just a plain glass cylinder.

    What I meant is, the design itself looks straight out of Betseyville. Bright pink, blue leopard, zebra… Take a look at some of Betsey Johnson’s purses and you’ll see what I mean!

    Ahhh! I get it. Maybe we’re supposed to think that Carrie Bradshaw is a big Betsey Johnson fan 🙂
