Best known for her role as Dr. Addison Montgomery on the ABC dramas Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, Kate Walsh debuted her first fragrance Boyfriend on HSN in November 2011. It sold out in a matter of days (except for a rollerball and a perfume compact version).
The good news is that Boyfriend is now in stock and available in a variety of sizes and versions at Sephora stores and online.
Boyfriend capitalizes on the current fashion trend of “boyfriend” apparel: men’s jeans, shirts or jackets that look like they were borrowed and effortlessly thrown on. Withe her debut fragrance, Walsh wanted to capture the scent of a guy on a girl: a man’s cologne mixed with perfume, the smell that lingers after he’s gone.
In a interesting bit of celebrity symbiosis, actor Ryan McPartlin who plays Devon “Captain Awesome” Woodcomb on NBC’s Chuck plays Walsh’s boyfriend in a great series of promo video on Walsh’s perfume web site: www.YourBoyfriend.com. A screen cap of Partlin in the hysterically funny vid called “Boredroom” is below (though I don’t think it is his voice in other clips).
Notes: Dark Plum, Myrrh, Night Blooming Jasmine, Benzoin Tears, Skin Musk, Golden Amber, Vanilla Woods.
Price: $35 for .5 oz. eau de parfum at Sephora or HSN, where it is back in stock.
