Pretty celebrity scents

Kimora Lee Simmons is a fabulous diva who gets things done. Her beachy scent Dare Me has a top note of island coconut and magnolia, with a light finish of sandalwood and a hint of musk. It smells pricier and classier than many drug store celebrity brands. It’s an inexpensive scent, at about $20 to $25 – perfect for young women and summer. Well done, Kimora! We also like that she is the mother of two young girls, and never forgets that she is a role model for young women.

The idea of Eve Longoria creating a perfume is ironic; she has been allergic to scent her whole life. Now she finally has a scent she can wear. Eva by Eva Longoria was especially created for her. It features top notes of citrus, neroli, bergamot tea and aldehydes. The middle notes include sheer jasmine, muguet, violet and freesia. The scent finishes with base notes of musk, amber and sandalwood. This lovely scent will appeal to women who want a crisp but sexy scent. It’s head and shoulders above the usual celebrity scents and many newer designer scents. If you are scent shopping, give it a sniff. A full-scent range, starting at about $40, is available in major department stores.
