Kate Walsh Billionaire Boyfriend Eau de Parfum Review

Kate Walsh Billionaire Boyfriend Eau de Parfum 1

Kate Walsh created an absolute masterpiece with her Boyfriend fragrance but I think some elements were against her when she created the fragrance though.

1. She’s a celebrity.

Let’s face we all have those moments where we groan and think, “Oh not another celebrity fragrance!” I have them and I’m pretty sure you’ve had them too!

2. It was her very first fragrance launch.

Not only was she a celeb but this was a brand new venture for her. She didn’t have a mini Paris perfume empire to build on and she was just starting out so it made me as a buyer even more skeptical.

But she made some super smart choices with not only the marketing (Awesome was cast as boyfriend I mean seriously talk about WINNING!) but also the overall unique idea of the fragrance.

Needless to say, I tried it and fell head over heals in love.

Flash forward to Spring 2012 and Kate has a brand new fragrance on the run, Billionaire Boyfriend. Let’s face it, who doesn’t want to have a billionaire boyfriend?

Billionaire Boyfriend by Kate Walsh

Billionaire Boyfriend by Kate Walsh

Kate Walsh is a pretty classy chick. I loved her on Grey’s and I was sad to see her go. I don’t watch Private Practice as it simply didn’t catch my interest much but I def feel bad I didn’t give it more of a fighting chance.

I wish she’d just come back to Grey’s Anatomy and call it a day.

Either way she’s a great actress and damn attractive too but…why the hell was she at Charlie Sheen’s Roast? Eh?

Either way, moral of the story is she’s really the least likely celeb I’d think of as having a fragrance launch. Yes, she’s famous in her own right and I’m not belittling that but she doesn’t really have the hardcore exposure most celebs that launch a perfume have ya know?

So when she introduced Boyfriend, I admit, I kinda shrugged it off as “oh god another celebrity fragrance!”

I should have taken it way more seriously because Kate seriously has some sort of hidden talent and nose for fragrance. Boyfriend is just so incredibly luxurious. I’m a fruity, foody, sweet type of girl and Boyfriend is kinda my sophisticated, “I’m a big girl” fragrance. It’s just that incredible.

Why I am telling you this?

Because as I suspected and predicted Kate has a brand new fragrance launching and I couldn’t be more excited, so excited in fact I promptly ordered it as soon as it became available at HSN.

Bath Body Works Pink Chiffon for Spring 2012
The newest scent launching from Bath & Body Works for Spring 2012 is entitled Pink Chiffon! You can already get a sample of the new scent as a mini body lotion at stores if you’d like a little sniff.

The collection includes the typical Bath & Body Work offerings in the scent such as EDP, Body Mist, Body Lotion, etc…

Here’s a look at the notes:

  • Top Notes: Sparkling Mandarin, Red Pear, Peach Nectar, Wild Berries
  • Mid Notes: Tiare Flower, Jasmine Petals, Water Lily, Apple Blossom
  • Dry Notes: Coconut Milk, Vanilla Orchid, Creamy Sandalwood, Heliotrope, Chiffon Musk

I took a real tiny sniff of this when I was in store and it’s a nice sweet floral scent!

Likey!

It’ll be at your local Bath and Body Works soon!

Anyone smell it?

Do share!

P.S. Kristy Mc Nichol is in the news a good deal today. She came out. About time girl, always be true to who you are! It got me Amazon’ing her up because I’ve been looking for one of her films on DVD forever. I have it on tape but the DVD proved elusive! Anyone guess which movie?

You’d be right if you guessed Just the Way You Are! I was surprised that it is indeed FINALLY on DVD. Dude, you need to see this corny romantic 80’s cheesefest if you haven’t already.

I prominently ordered a copy so I can watch and rewatch it until my eyeballs bleed.

Happy Days!

Just the Way you Are BBW

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Peach Champagne Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Peach Champagne 001

The Lab had some champagne on on tap for the Holidays over on their Etsy Shop. They introduced, don’t quote me here, three champagne blends recently that I believe were exclusive to Etsy.

As of now they disappeared…

Grrr..but after the review I do suggest bookmarking the store just in case they add additional bottles.
