To me, it smells more sophisticated and mature then the other perfumes. It gets the thumbs up from my boyfriend too. "You smell gorgeous!" he purrs. I think it's a sexy scent with a lemon meringue pie and chocolate twist.
— Columnist Roxanne Parker of the Irish Independent on Sarah Jessica Parker's Covet, one of 7 celebrity fragrances she wore as part of a blind smell test.
I'm sure Roxanne Parker has a good taste, however would it not be nicer when seven women did the very same test? I mean women who have very different tastes for perfumes?
This sounds a bit like a confirmation that Covet is truely the very best celeb scent. I'm not saying that it isn't but e.g. a woman who is a big fan of Estee Lauder has a different taste.
EL is most certainly a great signature perfume for many ladies.
What would a Hermes lady chose? And what would a Guerlainloving lady chose?
It's fun read but too personal to my very very humble nose.
It was a cute article, and it would have been fun to be the guinea pig! But, 7 women, 700 women – it almost makes no difference to me anymore. What is sexy to her, may smell like my grandmother to me. Unless they are writing about perfume every day and have a lot of perfume to compare back and forth (as they do in this blog) their personal opinion doesn't hold much weight for me. A big revelation for me was going to MUA and looking at perfume reviews of things I hate and reading all the rave reviews!
*And I know I'm alone on this one, but I'd rather wear Glow than Covet any day, I like my “clean” in the form of soap, not mouthwash!
Rose, what is MUA? Is it a store or and internetsite?

Rose, I really like Glow AND Covet — and agree, would have been fun to be the guinea pig.
It is a cute article
