Sarah Jessica Parker Perfumes: the Rise of the Acting Star
Sarah Jessica Parker was born on March 25, 1965 in a big family of eight siblings, raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. At an early age, she has shown fondness towards performance arts and the stage. Trained both in ballet and singing, she was groomed at an early age to become part of Hollywood. She first studied at Cincinnati Ballet then moved to the American Ballet Theater in NYC. Along with ballet, she also trained singing at the Metropolitan Opera.
Her first theatrical show was in the Broadway production entitled "The Innocents". Her continued performances prompted their family to move to New Jersey. As a professional performer, she joined different theatrical productions while studying at the Dwight Morrow High School. It was in 1982, when she first landed a role for a television show, My Body, My Child. After this debut to the television world, she would soon become part of numerous sitcoms. Sarah then found a way to Hollywood, at this time, she had decided to drop from school and pursue on her acting career. She enjoyed her new found world but she was still awaiting her first major role. In 1991, she landed a lead role as Steve Martin's partner in the movie L.A. Story. It would be followed by more substantial acting roles.
But aside from delving on the movie industry, SJP also continued theatrical roles and her name was slowly gaining much renown. Eventually, her stellar performance in the Broadway show, 'Once Upon a Mattress', won her a Tony Award nomination. Throughout her career, she received different acting award nominations and awards. For her signature role as Carrie Bradshaw in the cult HBO's Sex and the City series she won two Emmy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards and three Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Off-cam, Sarah Jessica Parker is a woman of integrity who builds on the betterment of the world. She is currently the National Ambassador for the US Fund for UNICEF as well as a recipient of the American Civil Liberties Union Award.
Sarah Jessica Parker Perfumes: the Rise of the Contemporary Fashion Icon
With her growing popularity in Hollywood, Sarah Jessica Parker's elegant style has gained much following from her fans.
In 2000, she hosted the MTV Movie Awards, coming out at each segment in a different outfit. This paved way to different fashion label endorsements.
She started out in fashion as one of the most loved spokespersons for prestigious fashion brands. Many fashion designers love Sarah's fashion style and public persona image; Manolo Blahnik, for example, has even named a shoe after Sarah, SJP (via: IMDB).
In 2003, she signed a heavy endorsement contract with Garnier for their Nutrisse line of hair products, and in 2004, for the fashion brand Gap. Contrary to her high-end modish role of Carrie Bradshaw, Gap made her look rather casual(ly elegant), and this striking contrast drew much commercial success for the brand.
Sarah Jessica Parker was fast imbibing her role as Carrie Bradshaw in her personality and her name was now equated with high end fashion. It was in March of 2007 when she launched 'Bitten', her first fashion collection. This release was in collaboration with the clothing chain Steve & Barry's. Her creations reflected her iconic and elegant style, clearly dictated by fashion norms and trends of 21st century America.
Sarah Jessica Parker Perfumes: Eponymous Perfume Line under Coty, Inc. Umbrella
In 2005, Sarah Jessica Parker released her first Lovely perfume under Coty Prestige Brand Division of Coty, Inc. Her debut fragrance was aptly named 'Lovely' which envelopes a clean concoction of floral notes. Parker has a profound affection towards floral notes which reflects on her fragrance collections.
Sarah has become well noted for her thrust and involvement into the perfumery industry. Anything labeled with SJP proved to be successful and Coty, Inc. has found a promising market out of her fragrances.
In an interview she revealed the inspiration for her latest perfume, SJP NYC (2010):
'A large part of the inspiration was what I now understand to be people's impressions of seeing Carrie Bradshaw walk down the street and what feelings that evokes for her and for them - a real sense of freedom and possibilities, a love for the city around her and, of course, fashion.'
This idea of a contemporary, independent and fashionable woman is reflected in her liberating fragrances that combine sultriness and elegance in one. Following the success of Lovely perfume, Parker launched a follow up perfume, Covet, in 2007. Two years after, The Lovely Collection was released which includes three fragrances: Dawn, Endless and Twilight. Fast track to 2010, Parker in cooperation with Coty created SJP NYC which stood out as her signature fragrance. This resembles much of her popular screen character, Carrie Bradshaw, thus she epitomized the chic contemporary woman.
Inspired by the elegance of modern American fashion, Sarah Jessica Parker has created an impressive fragrance line. Together with some of the best perfumers such as Honorine Blanc, Laurent Le Guernec, Ann Gottlieb, Clement Gavarry, Frank Völkl, Yann Vasnier and Stephen Nilsen, Sarah Jessica Parker perfumes for women embody contemporary metropolitan class and beauty.
Advertising campaigns for Sarah Jessica Parker perfumes are flamboyant, but not in a banal kind of way. Commercials and print ads are after the unusual and the untouched. In fact, fragrance launches of her perfumes are rather unpredictable, something that comes in almost pure creativity. Advertisement for her Lovely perfume has won Best National Advertising Campaign - TV in 2006. Her perfumes are aptly launched with a resounding advertisement; her latest perfume SJP NYC was launched just before the cult Sex and the City 2 movie was released (May 2010 in US, UK). SJP glides effortlessly between her different characters and perfume 'personalities'.
Launching a successful celebrity brand, especially in highly competitive fashion industry, is far from easy. Style, promotion, and even gimmicky marketing have often been proved futile in creating a lasting lucrative mark in this industry.
However, Sarah Jessica Parker's meteoric ascent and her lasting market success in fashion industry, and in particular in the fragrance industry, is a reflection of her acting achievements, but even more of her intensive personal involvement in product development.
The spirit of contemporary metropolitan fashion icon is more than excellently bottled in Sarah Jessica Parker perfumes for women.
