Four of the Best: Celebrity scents
Published 05/08/2010 | 12:48
The purists may turn their noses up at celebrity endorsed perfumes, but the sales figures tell a different story - it seems we're only too happy to keep buying. This week we at Independent Woman have been dipping our noses in the latest celebrity fragrances and while very few came up smelling of roses, here are our four faves.
Heat by Beyoncé
Sweet, musky and with plenty of character Beyoncé's new signature fragrance will appeal to ladies who aren't afraid to let their perfume wear them. Mixing subtle florals with almond macaroon and crème de musk, the empowering scent captures Beyoncé's personality perfectly resulting in a sweet woody fragrance with plenty of punch. If that's not enough to convince die hard fans the scent also comes with a cocktail ring which contains solid musk or a matching body lotion.
Available from selected pharmacies, priced at €33.95 for 50 ml
Sparkle by Kylie Minogue
Pop princesses who like their fragrances on the sweet side will fall head over heals for Pink Sparkle. With pink champagne as the central theme, the fragrance combines topnotes of grapefruit with heart notes of champagne and just when you thought you'd had enough some base notes of bourbon vanilla give the whole thing a sugary twist. The champagne theme continues all the way through to the bottle with a homage to a classic champagne bottle yet to be popped.
Available from selected pharmacies, priced at €25.95 for 30mls
Vintage Muse by Kate Moss
Designer, model and all round fashionista Kate Moss's latest fragrance was always going to turn heads. With top notes of blackcurrant cream, heart notes of violet and base notes of white musk the frangrance does a good job of creating an alluring scent that's sexy without being, how can we put this .... too much. Stamping her signature vintage style on the fragrance is fair enough and the 20's style bottle won't look too cringeworthy on the dressing table either.
Available from selected pharmacies, priced at €25.95 for 30ml
Reveal by Halle Berry
Ladies looking to release the inner bond girl may find whats needed in Berry's latest fragrance Reveal. Velvety, soft and oh so airy, the fragrance features her favourite flower mimosa as a top note, iris blossom as the heart and cashmere woods as the base resulting in a long lasting fragrance that lingers. No stranger to creating sultry scent, Reveal will be halle's third perfume and something tells us this won't be the last we'll be smelling of her.
