|Really bad pic of me, but this is me with Kate Walsh!|
Yesterday I was invited to meet actress Kate Walsh (Addison on 2 of my fave shows, Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice) and talk with her about her new fragrance/perfume Boyfriend. Just want to start this off by saying Kate was one of the sweetest celebs we've ever spoken to. She's incredibly down to earth and just wonderful. Anyway, her fragrance Boyfriend was inspired by her ex boyfriend. She had just broken up with him, and she was missing him. She was missing him so much, that she decided to go to the store and buy a mens cologne. After buying the cologne and realizing it was way too masculine, she decided that she wanted to create a fragrance. One that would be a combination of a man's scent on a woman's skin, masculine and feminine notes. That's when the fragrance Boyfriend was created.
This perfume contains notes of Jasmine, Myrrh, Golden Amber, Plum. On me, this dries down to a delicious blend of sandalwood, patchouli, and vanilla. It smells so good. A light subtle fragrance, nothing too strong. I can' stand strong fragrances. I hate when I can smell someone from like two blocks away. Random fact: Did you guys know that the jasmine scent is considered nature's aphrodisiac? Anyway I applied the fragrance while interviewing Kate, after that I went to meet Mr. Milly for lunch. I took the subway to meet him, and it was packed with people. A man told me I smelled "delicious. " Then I went to meet Mr. Milly and like I always tell you, if Mr. Milly notices anything, that means it's a winner. The man notices nothing. He was quick to notice this scent. He couldn't stop commenting "Man you smell yummy." This product is a winner in my book.
You can order it here.
Kate will be at Sephora in the Houston Galleria on June 4.
Beginning at 10 AM on June 4th, Sephora is offering the first 200 guests who make a BOYFRIEND fragrance purchase an exclusive wristband that guarantees an event photo with Kate.
Kate will also be on HSN July 30th.
We also asked Kate Walsh some questions about her beauty routine.
What is your must-have beauty product?
At night it's this weird thing, I use Emu Oil. You can get it at whole foods or online. I put it on my skin. It's non comodegenic won't clog pores, super hydrating. It's very healing. My makeup artist put me on to it. You can use it on your zits, and on burns. A friend of mine put it on her burn after she got burned with a curling iron. At night, I moisturize and then put a little bit of that before I go to bed. Or even in the morning before I do my makeup. It's very healing.
And what products do you use on your hair?
I use Joico products. Their stuff is great and Bumble and Bumble Red. I love Bumble & Bumble's red shampoo/conditioner, keeps the red in. And I do a conditioning treatment once every four weeks.
What life advice can you give anyone trying to do what you are doing?
I will say if you have ideas/dreams, talk about it. Share with other people, and get them for support. I started talking about it, writing about it, the more people I talked to it about, the more buoyed I kind of got. People kept saying "that's a great idea." You never know who someone knows that can help you. Talking about it a lot, will get you a lot of support. Also, If the idea won't leave me alone, then I know I got to do it. If something haunts you, DO IT!
Oh yeah one more thing, because we're Beautylogic we're doing a giveaway for Kate Walsh's fragrance Boyfriend. Win a bottle of the Boyfriend Perfume as well as the rollerball.
To enter, just leave any comment about ANYTHING. But I'll mark you down for two entries, if you leave me a comment about your significant other or ex-significant other. It could be anything. WAS HE A JERK? SPILL IT. LOL, WAS HE GREAT? SPILL IT. Here's my comment: My last boyfriend was my husband, and the first thing I noticed about him when we went on our blind date was how much he looked like The Rock (Duane Johnson). Pretty much love at first sight.
