Sarah Jessica Parker Stash or SJP Stash is a new unisex perfume inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker’s own secret fragrance obsession. I was excited about this scent but across multiply interviews I’ve read she keeps mentioning that it smells like body odor.
I happen to be a massive fan of Kate Walsh’s Boyfriend. This needs to come back ASAP. Kate did a wonderful job capture the essence of wearing your boyfriend or husband’s favorite shirt or sweater. To me, it smelled like a warm, comforting hug from a boyfriend. I don’t know how but Kate managed to capture that in her fragrance perfectly.
I heard about Sarah Jessica Parker’s Stash Fragrance some months ago but at the time no one had a clue of the name nor what exactly the fragrance would smell like. Considering she’s legendary for creating feminine floral scents such as her popular Lovely Perfume, I felt for sure that would be what we’d see again from her.
But nope, not this time.
Stash takes Sarah Jessica Parker into the darkness. According to her it’s a smoky, woodsy, and body odor smelling fragrance that reminds her of a sweater froma guy who was on the Eurorail too long or something.
Ummmm, did no one tell Sarah that she’d sell more fragrance by omitting body odor from her description? I’m doubtful it does smell like body odor though because some of the notes seem like they might be rule breakers but none the less they also happen to work well together.
The fragrance apparently opens with a zesty note of grapefruit followed by black pepper and sage with a heart of cedarwood, patchouli, ginger lily, and pistachio. The real eye opens are the base notes that include Olibanum, massoia wood, vetiver, and musk. They had me at vetiver.
Body odor aside, I have to admit that Stash sounds like something I’d like since I like warm unisex fragrances. I’m hoping for a Boyfriend-like experience here but I think maybe SJP is going to surprise us with something completely original and potentially awesome.
What do you think SJP Stash will smell like?
