In the current issue of "Allure" Magazine, they did a fair job of finding affordable celebrity fragrances that are on equal par as their way more prestigious and expensive counterparts.
This scribe did the same thing over a few months then sniff which one is appropriate for certain time, day, and night.
If you need to spritz a "girl-next-door" scent, this bright and juicy unisex fragrance, "Unbreakable Love" by Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom is the lighter, brighter, and friendlier version of an androgynous scent meant to be shared by a couple. It is a lively fragrance vortex for women and men. Its top notes include delicate exotic neroli and citrus freshness of bergamot, associated with floral heart and deep notes of cedar and musk. Plus, it's a great money saver when it's made for two. "Unbreakable Love" is meant to be "stolen" by both women and men from their partners.
It's a clean scent that is never meant to lead anyone on, just pretty and polished for a woman or polished and refreshed for a man.
Right in the middle is Halle Berry's gingerly "Closer." The top notes of Wild Raspberry, Waterlily, and Ozonic Accord tickles the nose. The middle notes of Fougere Accord,Violet Flowers, Mimosa, and Cedarwood leaves a warm scent. The base notes of Vanilla Bean, Mahogony Wood, and Cashmere Musk are the building blocks of a classic, solid, warm, and deep scent.
Beyonce's "Midnight Heat," is dark and sexy, making it a great evening, party, and date fragrance.
This smoky fruity floral gourmand's top notes send whiffs of juicy top notes of Dragonfruit, Starfruit and Armenian Plum. Then, the heart notes explode into a vivid floral bouquet built upon the Purple Mokara Orchid, Queen of the Night Black Tulip and Purple Peony, leaving embers of Warm Amber, Patchouli and Sandalwood in its wake.
Beyonce's "Midnight Heat," is just as smoldering as the woman herself, best saved for a night out.
This is this scribe's version of celebrities giving their fans upscale fragrances at approachable prices.
