I was given this as a gift by a girlfriend after I had commented on how much I liked the other SJP fragrance, Covert. She assured me that this was much better and I think she is right. I love the flowery, but not overpowering, scent and the fact that is lasts all day or night. I also like that the bottle is a smaller, non-awkward shape as it makes it easier to carry around. It is also very affordable, though may be getting harder to find now as it has been around for a while.
lovely scent, small shaped bottle - easy to carry, long lasting fragrance
I guess that's a lesson learned - you must try it on yourself. It is quite a strong scent, so try it first and wait a while to see if it's any good on you first!
In my opinion - not much
On me it doesn't smell nice at all - I ordered it online and cancelled the order after I had the chance to try it on myself.
I am not a big perfume fan and was given this perfume as a gift. I was really taken with it straight away. It is a nice light perfume and doesn't overwhelm the sense like other perfumes I have had. I tend to get headaches from perfume, but this one just blends in nicely, like the smell of roses in the garden. Beautiful fragrance
It is nice and light which means you don't feel like you are breathing it in all day
The cap comes off quite easily and could result in it being dropped if not held by the base
I waas given a miniature bottle of Lovely and, upon first smell, went out and bought the full size bottle. The floral scent is not overwhelming, it is just right. As for price, it is around middle of the board, quite affordable and you don't feel you need to use it sparingly. It lasts all day. The miniature size is great to carry around in your handbag. It is more of a day fragrance than a night one though.
This is a lovely classic fragrance that will still be around long after the other celebrity fragrances have hit the junk shops.
I don't dislike anything about this product.
What a perfectly named fragrance – it really is lovley. Like a beautiful boquet of flowers in the springtime. The citrus top notes add a little sweetness to the fragrance and it mellows out perfectly with the white amber/musky base notes. One of the best things about Lovely is the staying power.. It is one of the few fragrances on the market that I have found to last the whole day without reapplying. A great choice for an everyday feminie fragrance and also a great gift idea as i am sure most women will/do love lovely
It really is Lovely!
i am a big fan of sarah jessica parker, and unlike alot of people i like to buy perfume with a celebrity name attached. i was given lovely as a birthday present by my sister after i requested it. i like that you can wear it in the day and also in the evening. i have also seen it on sale just this christmas, so at the moment is a bargain to buy. the bottle is really nice and classic, really suits the personality of sarah jessica parker and also her character in sex and the city. would recommend.
pretty scent, nice bottle, affordable
i was hesitant about buying this as i normally do not like to buy celebrity perfumes. but lovely by sarah jessica parker really is lovely. it is a nice light scent which is still light enough for daytime use. the price is quite affordable for a nice perfume - even better if you can find one of the many gift sets that are around and are often discounted after holiday periods. i love the bottle that this perfume comes in too - it's really simple and elegant
this is a really fresh scent. it is lovely and light enough for daytime wear
nothing - great value
This is a really lovely scent and will leave you smelling very fresh. A must buy for an everyday scent. Worth the purchase.
This would have to be my most favourite fragrance. My first bottle of Lovely was given to me by my mother for my birthday. I'm now on my third bottle and I really love to wear it everyday. I don't find the scent to be too strong. I have had many comments on what perfume I am wearing. My partner really loves me wearing this perfume. You can also get some great deals on gift boxes.
Can't think of anything.
This is a classic scent reminicent of perfumes made a long time ago. It has a lasting scent with depth, slightly floral tones but not overpowering at all, a little bit musky. It's sexy in a very subtle way. My partner bought this for me for my birthday a few years ago, it was recommended to him by his sister and when he smelt it he really liked it - and so do I!
Feminine but not girly, floral but doesn't make you sneeze! The colour, bottle shape and overall design are astheticaly pleasing. It's a perfum that won't date like many of the others made by hollywood personalities. Good for women aged mid twenties and on. Not really a teenage scent.
This would have to be my current favorite!
I bought it almost three years ago for my sister and it smelt really nice on her.
Again, I bought it the year after for my friend as a birthday gift and she smelt divine. It wasn't until I bought it again for my mother that I realized, that I really want it for myself. I bought the 100ml bottle for around $50 from a pharmacy for my own birthday and wondered why I hadn't bought it for myself earlier. Its a subtle, gentle fragrance that is perfect for everyday use. The bottle is charming and this perfume is certainly one of my very favorites. Nice work SJP.
Subtle, feminine, floral.
Great daytime perfume.
If you shop around, you can get it for under $60
Bigger bottle please. (I use it everyday)
i love it and rate it 5 stars, its perfect for daily wear or night wear, the price is really good too, i brought it on special 100 ml for $50
obviously the smell, its pretty strong and i like to wear this when i go out as the smell lasts, i like the bottle as its easy to use and hold, and see how much is still left with the clear bottle design
its pretty strong so if i have a headache i avoid wearing it
I think that 'Lovely' was the perfect name for the perfume, because everything about this perfume is lovely; the bottle, scent and price! It's perfect for the daytime, because it's light and fresh, not too heavy like a night time perfume sometimes is. This perfume would be a perfect gift for your best friend of mum.
It's a goprgeous, flowery scent. Light and not too overpowering, and the price is very affordable. The bottle is very pretty. Also, Sarah Jessica Parker is releasing a new 'Lovely' perfumes collection! I can't wait!
Not really much of a night time perfume.
My husband recently bought this perfume for me as a birthday gift and I was delighted with his choice. It is subtle and not overpowering like some fragrances, and the scent lingers gently throughout the day. This is definitely a woman's perfume, not something a teenager would wear, it is delicate and floral, a scent that I can imagine wearing for years to come. This would make a great gift for the 30+ woman. The perfume comes in a very pretty bottle which compels you to keep it on display on the dresser, it is too pretty to hide in a drawer. A very classy fragrance.
Lovely feminine scent, a perfume for woman that is subtle and mature
I adore this perfume, it is very feminine. I love the floral fragrance. I have been wearing the perfume for some time now and people often compliment me about it. I know it is recommended for daytime wear but I wear night and day. I think the price is quite reasonable too. The first bottle was given to me as a gift but I have been treating myself since.
This fragrance is wonderful, I love the floral tones
none at all
I love this perfume. It's one of my favourites. It's a very feminine scent. Very subtle. It was quiet expensive when it was first released, but just recently the price has really fallen & you can pick up the large size for a really reasonable price. I'm also a fan of SJP's Covet.
Absolutely beautiful scent. Nice bottle. Price has really come down lately too.
As a younger consumer, i found this scent quite average. The smell was very appropriate for the bottle- Sweet , sheer elegance with a tinges of dull, uninteresting tones.
I liked the subtltily of the scent- it smelt a very elegant and poised, and it lasted for quite a long time. Many other products lasted only about 4 or 5 hours, but this lasted me a good 8 until you could only smell a tinge of rosewood.
The bottle was a bit of a let-down, considering the scent itself isnt so bad. The price should also be a bit lower, because it's not that a good product.
Overall, i really dont think its a well planned perfume. From all of the hype thatw as surrounding it and the advertising, i was extremely let down. I tried to like it, i tested it at least 10 times at a department store and still i was unimpressed. Sorry Sarah.
I do not like the franrance at all.
Everytime I went into a department store I used the tester and gave myself a spray. I so wanted this fragrance, so ended up buying it from my son to me for Christmas! The gift pack was on sale complete with body lotion, bath milk and shower gel, as well as the beautiful fragrance. This is really a special frangrance and people always comment on the lovely aroma when I am wearing it. I use it as a day perfume, but it would work equally well in the evenings too. You won't be disappointed, it really is 'lovely'.
Perfect soft, subtle fragrance, great price point, gorgeous bottle.
