I bought this when I was looking for a soft and feminine scent for me. It is light yet seems to be present and lasts throughout the day. I only use about 2-3 sprays and that is enough for the entire day. It is a mild and soft scent, with a slight floral and very light musk scent.
Purchased in June 2018.
One of my favourites
I have used Lovely since it first came out. I used to have many perfumes but sadly i developed a fragrance allergy. I was very happy to discover i could still wear this. Lovely is soft and slightly musky and would suit all ages. Its hard to find now but i usually purchase from Chemist Warehouse at a very reasonable price. I also request it for birthdays and Christmas. It's a truly unique well thought out perfume that i hope will be around for a very long time.
US is making parfumes weaker
So I purchased Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely perfume n Budapest, Hungary last summer on vacation. I purchased it from Douglas (european equivalent of Sephora) at the Mall. The scent was indeed lovely and long lasting. So when I ran out last month I bought a bottle from Kohls and although the scent is the same it only lasts for about 2 hours vs. the one from Budapest lasted me all day, even the next morning I could smell traces of it sometimes. I compared the two bottles they both say Eau de perume so they are the same. This is not the first time I have noticed that EU made fragrances are higher quality even though they are the same brand and everything.
Smells like dettol once it has dried
I tried this on at Chemist Warehouse and forgot about it. I got home and I was wondering who had been using Dettol then I realised I don't have any Dettol in the house and realised it was the perfume. From reading the other reviews apparently, this perfume has changed. I would not recommend it unless you want to smell like disinfectant.
Not the same anymore as it used to be weak as TEA
Me and my daughter has been using LOVELY for nearly 7yrs but our last purchased 15/1/18 was a disappointment. It is SO diluted the smell didn’t even stay on the body for more then 20mins and it suppose to be perfume. I question the quality of the ingredient but was refused refund by the MANAGER. Beware LOVELY doesn’t smell as it use to be anymore. Definitely don’t smell the same. Weak as tea. make me wonder if they are real LOVELY? I purchased
this perfume is okay I went to smell it today for a gift to my mum and it didn't smell as good as I thought it would smell, lovely wasn't so lovely ! but Anyway i got it for my mum and she loved it, i got it because my mum loves things that smells like that. people like different things I guess !
Not the same
I agree that this perfume is not the same as it used to be. I loved the original Lovely scent I used to get at perfume counters of stores like Elder Beerman & Macy's, but now it is much cheaper and is not carried by the department stores anymore. You can find a less expensive version at stores like Target. Even the bottle is cheaper, no longer pink, cheap fabric collar, etc. I don't care about the packaging, but the manufacturing or ingredients must be cheaper as well. The perfume's smell is different once it reacts to my skin, changing the s...cent to something I don't like, and it does not have the staying power it used to. I can understand if they wanted to appeal to more women by making it more affordable, but it does not smell good, and I wish they had kept the original so we could have a choice. Now I'm looking for something else.
Has It Changed
Sorry but has this product change? when me and my family first started using it, it was light, non over powering didn't react with other products and lightly settled on the skin. but now when on all 4 of our skin types it smells like burning chemicals. were I kept my old one and it smells light and flowery on all of our skin types.
Nice, light and kind of flowery
My boyfriend gave it to me for valentines day. I like it, it's not too over powering, it think summer is a good time to wear it, the scent seems to fit being in the sunshine! i dnt normally enjoy flowery smelling perfume but when i wear it I'm surprised how much I like it! It's long lasting too, which is great!
I tried it in the perfume shop and loved it. I suggested my other half to get it for me for christmas. But it doesnt smell the same as it did. Its a too strong, overpowering, sickly sweet, old lady smell that takes forever to settle. Feel like throwing it out. Unlike Covet, which I find to be the complete opposite but has an hard to use bottle.
Obviosly not my thing.
I have a lot of difficulty finding a perfume that not only smells nice in the bottle and on some eles but also on myself, this is one of the very few that is in that category. It is very long lasting as the fragrence is still detecable when i get home from work, I also have a very sensitve reaction to perfumes and deoderants and this does not bother me at all, I love that I dont have to be over powered by the smell just so others can comment on how LOVELY it is
Difficult to find local stockists
Lovely light fragrance
I love this, I originally bought a bottle for my sister in law for Christmas, but i so loved the smell I had to get some for myself. Its smells so soft and flowery and it reminds me of how my mum smelt when we were young. Its a comfortable fragrance to wear anytime as its a really feminine smell.
Gorgeous Flowery Smell
I would not buy this perfume for myself after testing it, and would not be suprised if most of it's appeal is in the celebrity endorsement. The scents do not really complement each other, blending fruits with musk AND patchouli?? Patchouli does not have a very pleasant scent, sort of an earthy 'hippie' girl aroma that stands out to me among the rest of the blend. Perhaps if it didn't have this it would be a bit better.
The bottle is not completely unattractive.
Is a bit busy to have any distinctive sort of fragrance and doesn't seem to last very long.
This is yet another fragrance I bought for my mother for Christmas when it first came out. It was in the mid range for perfume price wise. I smelt the flowerly floral tester in the store and I loved it. Luckily she loved it more and it was a hit. It was reasonably priced and I think the packaging was very attractive. I don't really like Sarah Jessica Parker as an actress or her other perfumes but this one is different and better compared to her others such as Covet. It's gone down in price since I bought it last and it's readily available at most chemists, priceline and Myer
A sweet, fresh perfume that can be worn at any age and is best suited for daytime. There are no complex notes, but it is a pleasant scent. The price is great. Don't expect any compliments or comments, but no one will back away either. It's a pity it is a celebrity scent as it's availability will be determined by her shelf life. I would have loved this scent to be available through a perfume house.
As it's name suggests, this is a "lovely" perfume. Sweet and light, suitable for adolescents and even older folks during the day. It has a fresh, rel...
