Kate Walsh Boyfriend Perfume & Beauty Must-Have & Giveaway!

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.


Giveaway ends Wed June 1

Have a great Memorial day weekend.

We'll be back Tuesday!

Hugs,

Milly

The Rock? Wow..lucky girl! LOL. My last boyfriend is also now my husband;we have been married for 16 years. He always smells sooo good,when hes away I'm always sniffing his worn tshirts,pillow,anything that smells like him. This perfume sounds like it smells delicious. I would love to win it. Thanks Milly!

kristy said...

Would love to try "Boyfriend." Missing mine...he lives in Atlanta, I live in Nashville. We don't see each other nearly enough.

Latoya said...

I LOVE Kate Walsh's boyfriend fragrance, it totally reminds me of all the reasons why me and my EX are not together anymore, everything I get from this fragrance I never got from him. Comfort, love, a quiet drama free Saturday night... need I go on? Yes, Boyfriend is all that an some, oh and he's totally intoxicating! :P

Brittany said...

My ex-significant other smelled fantastic all the time. Superficial though it may sound that is one of the things I miss the most about him so I can totally relate to the concept of boyfriend and love Kate Walsh's story behind it! Hope I win the boyfriend giveaway!

mandogal said...

Ex was from a different country, (We met at music camp) oh boy to hard and draining to keep the fun alive. was fun and thrilling at first but then just kind of fizzled after a while.....still friends..it happens.

Christine said...

I'd love to win 'Boyfriend'! It's not at a Sephora near me. My ex-love was amazing but moved away and is married now :/

Cat said...

Such a great fragrance idea! I always steal my boyfriends pillow when he gets out of bed bc it smells like him. Now everyone can have a little 'boyfriend' smell all the time!

katie said...

My first real boyfriend is now my husband :)

Anonymous said...

i would like to enter to the giveaway :D but i don't understand how xD

Sari Goldman said...

The thing that made me realize that my boyfriend was a 'keeper' was that we were both sober when we met on a blind date and had a great time anyway :) (we met in college at a date party)...he also loves when I wear Boyfriend every day!

nicolacourtney said...

I have yet to smell Boyfriend! But I love all of the marketing and promo Kate is doing!

And I'm sure my current boyfriend won't mind if I smell like Boyfriend :)

Nichole said...

I have always loved men's cologne's but didn't want to smell like a man so this concept is brilliant. I dated my ex twice as if once wasn't enough to know he wasn't Mr. Right. Sweet guy though but not for me.

ang said...

Oh look I figured it out finally!!! I love the idea and kate concept behind her perfume! I love smelling my boyfriends scent on clothese laying around:) My boyfriend is my neighbor, I didn't have to look far.

Ella Pretty Blog said...

I'd love to win this because I kind of favour masculine scents anyway (the citrus ones).

My last ex used to wear a gorgeous lemony perfume - it smelled so fresh and crisp, but I never asked him what it was. The closest I've come to it is Eau Savage or Jo Malone's Lime Basil & Mandarin.

Carla B. said...

I always remember a cetain Boyfriend whenever I hit a particular scent. I love perfumes that evoke memories of past boyfriends.

My hubby was in the Navy in 06 when we met and he was so "ghetto", I was thinking, "Oh hell naw, he is not my type"! Not in the world was I going to give him a chance. And 2 months later he stole my heart, I became his girlfriend. 2 years later, he asked me to marry him, couple months later I was pregnant, had a beautiful baby boy, and we been married for almost 3 yrs this yr. Its amazing how a simple ordinary ghetto guy can steal your heart! :) Ain't nothing wrong, but it was my least expectation of a guy when I thought my prince charming was going to be a pretty boy. ha ha! But I'm so satisfy and happy where I'm at.

*I'm a big fan of Grey's Anatomy and Kate Walsh is an awesome actress. I love her smile. :)

Deanna G. said...

I'd love to try this! :)

Jenn said...

catherine said...

I love Boyfriend! It's such a genius idea! Kate is amazing!!! I hope she comes up with Girlfriend before someone beats her to it...

I would love to write about my boyfriend or a boyfriend but I'm young and have yet to have my first boyfriend! :(

cutenss said...

My very first boyfriend was the son of my moms best friend. His name was Warren. We would walk to school together (it was up the hill). I will never forget hiim. I don't have a boyfriend now, but sometimes I wish I did :(

Sylvie ribeL_ said...

My ex-bf was a real jerk, and he cheated on me, but ı didn't know that for a long time, and after ı broke up with him, no reason, then it popped-up as a reason:D and ı am happy without him, ı know that ı totally forgot his face :D

Kat said...

The last guy that I was with never told me he was bipolar...until he was having a manic episode and told me he had been committed not once but twice.
Never saw that one coming :)

Sylvie ribeL_ said...

Now I have a very kind an handsome bf, he really loves me , the problem is he is really cute, and ı dont want him to be cute, gals are staring at him, both I jealous him and I like this situation because he is my @boyfriend :D


PS: ıf ı win this giveaway, this will be the first in my life :D:D

Gator Grad said...

Oh! Great giveaway!

I just recently got married. About him: he's very kind, super handsome and he DOES smell good. I love wearing his shirts to bed, so I totally agree about the idea behind the Boyfriend perfume!

Smaranda said...

My significant other is such a wonderful guy! I'm a huge perfume lover and like to wear fragrance and he likes that about me, because he likes to wear cologne too, so we're a perfect match in that respect, as well as many others :) Thanks for a great giveaway, I adore Kate Walsh!

spitfire said...

my last boyfriend always smelled great, love kate's concept

Perfumenut said...

I met my now boyfriend while I was at the mall, buying a perfume gift for a friend! How amazing is that? He was there looking for his sister's favorite fragrance for her birthday!

FineNotes said...

Such a great giveaway, I would love to win this perfume! My ex boyfriend was a great love of mine, he moved to another country years ago and I still miss him so much, but we both had to move on with our lives. I'm grateful I got to know him and be with him.

TMP said...

My last boyfriend is now my fiancee!! Before he proposed to me, he asked my parents for my hand in marriage :-)

livelovethinkgolden said...

I met my ex-boyfriend at the gym where I worked. He started talking to me and invited me to church. I was hooked! He always smells sooo good! Literally, I have sniffed this man right after he has had an intense workout and he smells like soap! I don't understand it! Though we didn't work out, we are still very good friends and still attend church together.

ann said...

My boyfriend taught me how to surf!

DGirl said...

I met my ex boyfriend on a blind date. He made me laugh a lot. We just wanted different things in life, it didn't work out, but he was a really nice guy.

Tiffiany said...

My last boyfriend was my husband too. The first thing I noticed about him was his eyes. It didn't hurt that he smelled fantastic. Later I found out he always smells great because he is a chemical compounder who specializes in making fragances.

Charlene said...

my last boyfriend was also my husband, we were married for about 3 yrs and a couple months then he said we're not compatible, maybe marriage isn't for me...its over(in a nutshell). ANYWAY pls enter me becuz imma need me some of this sweetness when i get me a new boyfriend!

Carrie Meredith said...

Your husband looks like The Rock? Wow, you're a pretty lucky girl!

I married my husband 6 1/2 years ago, and the thing that really hooked me about him was his voice. He's from Eastern Tennessee and has the most amazing, sexy Southern drawl. It comes out in full force when he's talking to his parents on the phone (he moved up to the midwest to live with me).

Theresa N. said...

I'd love to win this for myself, my husband wears more cologne than I do perfume I've got to catch up.

My ex boyfriend was a drummer in a band. The guy I'm seeing now is a guitarist! Crazy, right? They are in no way related to each other except they're both musicians. When my now boyfriend told me what his job was, I had to laugh. I seem to have a thing for musicians :)

Livingmylifelikeitsgolden said...

Happy Memorial Day.
My last boyfriend and he is my current boyfriend...we have known each other for over 15 yrs...and yes, ladies he is the one!

Jonesy said...

My favorite show is private practice so i'm super jealous and excited you met Kate Walsh. I had no idea she was coming out with a product so this is great news! I met my last boyfriend at Ikea, we were both in search of a couch and met literally sitting on the same couch. We clicked from there. It was off to a great start, I was crazy about him. Things were all good until we broke up on my Birthday! Never showed up at my birthday party, spent the night crying outside arguing on the phone, he told me he was overwhlemed, i think he just turned out to be crazy. Needless to say, he made my birthday memorable. I learned a lot from that experience and am happy to say I'm 100% over him and super excited that i was able to grow from that experience as a person. Did i mention i lost almost 500 dollars on a cruise we were supposed to go on 2 weeks later? Yeah, lol anyway, I'd LOVE to win the perfume because I currently don't have a boyfriend and it would be a great to win a prize : ) unti a great one comes along. Love your blog! - Jonesy.Bliss@gmail.com

Angela said...

My husband was a good friend of my family, then a good friend to me, then he became my 2nd and last boyfriend, then my husband.

green shushi said...

I met my husband at work (I know, tsk tsk) 8 years ago! We got married almost 2 years ago. I wish I can bottle his yummy scent--ha!

Ana said...

My boyfriend is the greatest man I know. I feel so lucky to have found someone so special to me and hope that we can make it till the end together.

Jenny F said...

My last boyfriend was my husband too! We got married about 2 years ago...on the beach, it was my wish since forever! :) I love the beach. It was a beautiful day. Intimate, with just friends with family, warm hugs and familiar smiles.

Toy said...

My last boyfriend is now my husband who was also a blind date. We met for the first time and saw each other everyday after the first for a month! We celebrated our 4 year anniversary May 27th!

Meeting my now boyfriend (soon to be engaged) was a completely unexpected experience. I had just gotten out of a bad marriage, divorced with one kid, and he came along!

I wasn't ready for a new relationship at all, I didn't even want to be in one at that time. It took me a long time to let him be part of my life, but I'm so happy he stuck with me and he makes me happier than I ever thought I could be again.

Sara said...

I met my now husband while I was taking a trip to London. It was November and the weather was dreary, foggy and rainy, but we couldn't care less. It all felt very romantic. Two dinners later, we were hooked on each other. It was basically love at first sight, we've been together for 6 years now.

Great giveaway!

Mandy said...

I'd love to win this!

My boyfriend and I met at my cousin's wedding. He's a professional photographer and was there to take photos. Love him to pieces!

Tammy said...

I heard Kate Walsh said she missed her ex-boyfriend's smell and that is how she created "Boyfriend"... well, I just broke up with mine... and I totally understand what Kate meant by missing his smell...
