Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love was only the biggest book of 2006/2007—and now, as you probably know, it’s being turned into a movie (starring Julia Roberts, out in August).
I will confess: I read the book and loved it. (Well, it was a bit touch-and-go through the “Pray” section, to be perfectly honest. But other than that, I enjoyed it.)
But did I enjoy it enough to want to SMELL like Eat, Pray, Love? That is the question.
On July 15th, Fresh (fresh.com) is releasing a fragrance and candle collection based on the movie. Obvs the three scents (all eau de parfums, US$32 each) are named Eat, Pray and Love!
According to StyleList:
“Eat” celebrates the sweetness of Italy’s famous desserts and wines, with notes of bright lemon and basil balanced by creamy cannoli, caramel, meringue, and vanilla that is topped off with sparkling Prosecco and Limoncello.
“Pray” journeys to India’s sultry incense and spice history with jasmine, pink pepper, patchouli, amber, juniper berry, cardamom, and musk for a woodsy scent laced in exoticism.
“Love” captures the emotion with notes of bergamot, red currant, mango blossom, jasmine, sandalwood, and velvet amber, and is inspired by Indonesia’s tropical and sunny floral landscape.
I’ve got to admit—although I thought this was a strange collab (and I’m rather weary of all the collabs going on in general these days), these do sound quite lovely. But tell me what you think…
And last but not least, I’ll leave you with the trailer and some movie stills (in case you’re a fan). I’m putting this film in the SATC2 category—it might be terrible, but I HAVE to see it.
