Sarah Jessica Parker launches provocative,sexy STASH fragrance
Sex and the City star debuts her STASH
By Patti Covello Pietschmann
I love how Sarah Jessica Parker describes her latest fragrance, STASH, as 'the culmination of a long love affair with scent that breaks all the rules and is un-apologetically sexy and thoroughly addictive." "When we were creating this fragrance it felt so original, unique and subversive…like we were working on a secret government project. I thought of the name STASH, because the fragrance came to resemble a precious stone – something you have to stash away because it's so valuable," says Sarah. . "There's a Dr. Seuss book called 'Oh, the Places You'll Go!' When people smell this… oh the places that it will go. The bags, the briefcases, the pockets, the trench coat pockets, the backpacks, the subways, the airplanes. No one is going to leave it behind."
The sexy superstar has launched a mysterious global street art campaign teasing the fragrance's ultimate reveal. Nearly 100 bustling sidewalks and iconic New York City and Los Angeles locations have been tagged with #ComeandFindIt in chalk art, spurring consumers to stop, think – "Who wrote this?" "What does it mean?" – and hopefully share on social. Parker herself teased the art on Instagram via several posts, which led to a final reveal of a thirty second video of the campaign ad.
STASH createdSarah Jessica Parker worked closely with IFF perfumers Clement Gavarry and Laurent Le Guernec who helped create her first fragrance, LOVELY. STASH is a sensual aromatic woody Eau de Parfum Elixir Spray. It wraps raw, sexy masculine notes with flirtatious, feminine notes to create a universally sexy scent.
TOP NOTES: grapefruit zest, black pepper and sage
MIDDLE NOTES: cedarwood atlas, patchouli, ginger lily and pistachio
DRY NOTES: olibanum, massoia wood, vetiver and musk
All in the packaging
STASH's bottle presumes an apothecary glass. The design is minimalistic, yet sophisticated, with clean lines and soft curves. A satin black and gold rimmed cap with twisted black twine and a gold medallion seal the elixir within. The fragrance's name is written in gold on a ripped piece of black gaffer tape, and signed with the designer's iconic initials – SJP.
