Category: Floral Fruity

Notes: Plum, apricot, coconut, tuberose, orris root, amber, jasmine, musk, sandalwood

The Bottle: The Covet bottle on grape-flavored crack. Pretty, but with none of the sophistication of the original.

The Scent: Sweetly innocent, rather than sexy. Extremely different from the original Covet, in both mood and chemical composition, so I find the fact that they are supposedly related to be a bit misleading. The plum is most prevalent, along with a heady dose of apricot. Why call a fragrance “Pure Bloom” when all the most prominent notes are fruity? Misfire, Miss Parker. At least the original Covet had depth and dimension, even if the lavender/lemon/chocolate combination was a little odd. This is her trashier cousin, not her little sister. Comes complete with commitment issues – turn your back for a moment and she’s out the door, leaving not a trace.
