This week I am going to challenge my female counterparts, from J.Lo, Mariah, Sarah Jessica Parker to Gwen Stefani, that my fragrance is better than theirs. I am a man, and I know how a woman should smell.
— Sean "Diddy" Combs says his Unforgivable Woman is the best. Watch him say it in person on the Rachel Ray show this Friday, or read more at E!online, or just chuckle to yourself and go back to whatever else you were doing.
This brings back fond memories of his statement at the time of his men's fragrance release: “There are millions of men that are taking my lead, and I've got to make sure that they come into the promised land of sexy.”
He cracks me up, J
Oh, boy. Sean 'Diddy Moses' Combs. Move over, Charlton Heston
Oh paleeeeeeeze, like he's a true arbiter of how one should smell like. He's ghetto trash dressed up well with money.
His men's scent is a rip off of Creed's Millisime Imperial and I hate that scent. I'm sure the women's is totally boring too.
In his defense (and he needs one given all the silly things he says in public) I tend to think he's done a better job than many in the celeb market — I thought the Unforgivable Man scent was well done, although agree it has that Creed feel. Unforgivable Woman maybe not quite as good, but still, you can find way worse.
The one thing I can't blame celebs for is more often than not their creations just reflect what they happen to wear/like. Examples – like you say, Diddy and Creed, Britney Spears stuff lean heavily in the vanilla/fruit – vanilla/floral direction like the CSP Vanille Abricot she was reported to wear some time ago, Gwen Stefani's been quoted as really liking Victoria's Secret Pear Glace, which does smell like L which smells of Petite Cherie, etc etc. Hilary Duff said she wore Opium and like orientals – we got a fruity mass friendly sweet oriental for her scent. Even Deneuve probably reflected in some sense broadly what she was wearing at the time. And let's not forget J Lo's Glow, and the massive similarity to China Rain, which famously she loved. So, I guess you can't blame them for essentially describing or choosing what they know when it comes to perfumer's briefs and them picking the final formula.
All true, and so probably I like SJP's efforts best because she has more daring tastes in perfume than the rest.
I could DRINK Covet, I love it so much!
He's a no-talent, arrogant thug.
Can't comment, as I don't know much about him other than via the perfume. He certainly does seem arrogant enough on that score.
Diddy, you a doody.
I 2nd this comment!!!
I dislike Diddy…but… I can' help but wonder if these comments are not made in the spirit of idiotic arrogance, but are instead very calculated attempts at viral publicity. Is he being controversial just because controversial sells, sells, sells? Did he have a hand in his own (booooring) ad being banned? (I mean look at what being banned did for the sales of Opium way back when) ..Am I seeing too much in this? Perhaps, but I think he is smart and he knows a lot about publicity. I would not be at all surprised if all this is carefully orchestrated. Which will depress me, if the frags end up selling like hotcakes. *sigh*
Oh, I think it is all very calculated — except if I had to guess, I'd guess he really is arrogant, and I don't think they meant to make the video so excruciatingly dull.
