Sarah Jessica Parker’s next fragrance, due to launch in February, will be SJP NYC. The scent, a fruity floral, is meant to tie in with Parker’s upcoming Sex and the City movie (due out in May), and to reflect the character she plays, Carrie Bradshaw.
SJP NYC was developed by perfumer Honorine Blanc; the notes include mandarin, white osmanthus, strawberry, gardenia, honeysuckle, mimosa, rose, sandalwood, vanilla absolute, rum flavor and creamy musks. Per Sarah Jessica Parker…

In a million years I would never think, ‘Let’s work around strawberry.’

Downed 26 beers in a single night in high school. “I threw up a lot. But it was a contest…. I hope this story isn’t only about drinking.”
