This is currently my every-day fragrance and I love it. I am probably on my third big bottle - 1 a year. Please note that this fragrance is discontinued. So for those who love it or want to try it, this is really sad, but it provides a great opportunity to pick up a couple of bottles on the cheap (just make sure to smell the contents of the one you buy to ensure that you are not buying stock so old its 'off'. What I love about this fragrance is that it is green - and that smells fresh and clean to me. I especially love the Sicilian lemon and vetiver in this blend. Once the citrus notes mellow you will pick up on the exotic woods scents... I think this is why I love it. It has a sexy edge. It isn't just a simple 'green' scent - it has depth and spice. It is unique and when it is gone I will really miss it.
The *rating criteria is for staying power is about how long the product will remain on the market. But the actual wear of the fragrance on your skin is different. This fragrance has great staying power on the skin because its not just a green/citrus fragrance - it has the deeper notes from the cyphre/ fougere families. Those blends are not for everyone.
I bought this perfume on a whim at the Duty Free shop in the airport a couple years ago in a 2 for 1 deal with Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. I was a big fan of SJP’s first fragrance Lovely, but found it very strong and hard to wear any other time but winter . Covet is a lighter fragrance, and has a bit of a citrusy scent which I find can be worn almost year round. While I think it was less popular than Lovely, this is one of the things I like about it. I can wear it without it reminding me of all the other people I know who have the same perfume. The design of the bottle is one of the other great features of this fragrance. Its decorative flower top makes it something you can leave out on your dresser.
I've found Covet to be a perfume I can wear often without getting tired of. I've been wearing it off and on for about 2 years and keep going back to it!
I got a sample of this perfume and wasn't expecting much. I usually think most perfumes (especially the expensive ones!!) smell awful on me. Maybe they have too much alcohol or musk, I just don't know. But I found that a couple of drops of Covet smells "clean" on me. I can definitely smell the lemon, as stated in the description of the product and even a bit of the chocolate which makes it smell less like a soapy kind of "clean". It last about 4 to 6 hours on me, but of course you have to lean a bit to smell it: perfumes aren't make to engulf you in other people's smell.....
So this is better for me than Thierry Muegler's "Angel": Boy! That stank!!!! Like B.O.
P.S. Fragrance.com sells full sized bottles for 15$...
Something about this fragrance doesn't work with me. I really was intrigued by the commercial, however sadly just don't think it's worth spending money on.
The pic about says it all! Sarah Jessica Parker should be jailed for making such a crappy smelling perfume!...ok so I am kidding about the being jailed thing but still, I have to agree with Artist, this is yet another FAILURE in the perfume department for SJP. Why oh why does she attach her name to things that stink! I don't get it. The perfume stinks.
I hate to say this, but Sarah Jessica Parker has come up with another nauseating scent. The ads for the perfume are very funny and effective though, so I just had to try it at the fragrance counter. Covet is really strong smelling, one whiff and I could feel a headache coming on! And I could smell it so strongly with my nose stuffed up from allergy season! I do love Sarah Jessica in Sex and the City, but with fragrances I think she could do way better.
