Heya Posse Crew, Stash SJP Unspoken Sarah Jessica Parker (forevermore called Unspoken) was on the shelf at the chemist on Tuesday when I was out and about and 100ml for under AUD$30 (>US$20) spoke my language even though there wasn’t a tester. The original Stash had been such a success on my skin that I decided to plunge blind. A very rare occurrence nowadays. Ever since Lovely I have tried every SJP frag release.
Unspoken Stash Sarah Jessica Parker 2018
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Pink pepper, Quince
Heart: Wisteria, Honeysuckle, Peony
Base: Musk, Sandalwood, Tonka bean, Frankincense
The packaging and bottle were my first excitement. Rose gold is my gold. Whenever I see it something warm and magical happens in my heart. Jin has bought us rose gold pave set diamond earrings for our wedding, one each. He could not have chosen better even if he’d tried.
How does Unspoken smell? Familiar. It feels like the amalgamation of a bunch of my favourite scents. The opening zings a little like my great love the long DCd Cacharel Liberté, not the same but reminiscent. The peony is dewy and soft, like rubbing petals against your cheek on a cool morning. The dewy wetness reminds me of Calvin Klein Contradiction with peony instead of rose but the sense doesn’t last very long because the base is already in the house.
Here we have a vaguely tonka sweetness with a creamy woodsiness. It’s not super outstanding, groundbreaking or intensely luxurious but it is harmoniously blended, smells wonderful and lasts for hours and hours. The whole fragrance could fit into the Guerlain Elixir Charnel portfolio and not stand out like dogs balls as a cheap interloper.
Will I ever use my 100ml? Probably not. Will it see some action? Definitely. Especially as Australia cools down for winter I think Unspoken will become an easy wear, spritz ands go staple for 2018. Up in the Northern Hemisphere it will wear beautifully for evening adventures, even to your AC cooled office.
Which is your favourite SJP scent?
