Kiimora Lee Simmons is a fascinating woman. Mother, fashionista, diva, and entrepreneur, she always has something new to share with us. One of the things that Kimora is already known for is her growing number of fragrances, the latest of which is Baby Phat L♥V ME by Kimora Lee Simmons.
As with her other fragrances, it’s not just about a pretty bottle (although this one is really, really pretty). There is a message that she is sending to women everywhere who might not be as successful and confident as Kimora, but who aspire to be. With Djimon Hounsou, her new husband, and her baby Kenzo Lee, Kimora has renewed strength and confidence, and new love. Appropriately, this fragrance prounouces: “LOVE ME for the essence of who I am… Admire me for my strength and spirit. Cherish me for my passion and drive. Respect me for my aspirations that DARE ME to dream. What’s most important is that you LOVE ME …for me.”
The fragrance itself is classified as oriental musk, but very soft. It is heavy on the vanilla, but the fruits and florals still manage to shine through as the fragrance dries down. It isn’t a super-light “Summer” scent, but it will adjust to your body chemistry quite well. The fragrance begins with top notes of Apricot Blossom, Tangerine, and Passion Fruit, with a floral heart of Frangipani Blossom, Jasmine Petals and Tiger Orchid with a soft, sensual drydown of Vanilla Blossom and Sandalwood. Like other Kimora fragrances, there’s that “gourmand” sensibility that makes it appropriate for younger women, but also appealing to their mothers. This is one that mom and daughter really can share. Although her own daughters are still quite young, I wonder if Kimora created it with her girls in mind?
With Kimora Lee Simmons, fabulous, fabulous presentation, with plenty of sparkle, is a must. The hot pink outer carton of Baby Phat L♥V ME has cocentric hearts in shades of pink and gold metallic, with Love Me in bodl gold metallic letters. The design follows to the sides, where the iconic Baby Phat “cat” logo, lounges. The spray bottle is a chunk of facted, clear glass, rounded at the top, with the Baby Phat L♥V ME logo in bold red letters on the front. A big, red, faceted, plastic “jewel” sits atop the spray diffuser, reminding us that this fragrance gives you license to be loved as you are, as well as sniffed by adoring fans!
Baby Phat L♥V ME (1.0 oz) retails for $28 in select stores nationwide, such as Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Kohl’s and Kmart. For more information please visit http://www.babyphatfragrances.com/
