Actress Kate Walsh introduced the Boyfriend Collection to Sephora on Wednesday, a group of beauty products that smell like (you guessed it) old boyfriends. And Walsh says all of the products in the collection smell the same. But different. What?
As we reported a few months ago, Walsh started the company because she missed the way an ex-boyfriend smelled. After buying a bottle of men’s cologne she discovered that she didn’t have to be in a relationship with a guy to smell like one.
Accordingly, the fragrance is a mix of masculine and feminine smells — and the collection of lotions, pulse point oil, dry body oil and the fragrance are made with the same base notes in varying amounts. Walsh told our friends at StyleList that’s what makes wearing the fragrances together so easy:
“All the fragrances, it’s all the same boyfriend fragrance, but they layer together and they’re all slightly different. For instance, the body cream is a little more gourmand, it’s a little more coconut in it, you’ll feel it. The pulse-point oil is slightly different than the EDP. It’s all the same base notes but they’re just a little bit different in substance. They layer together beautifully or wear individually.”
While we’ve never heard the term gourmand applied to a beauty product (just people who eat way too much gourmet food), the collection sounds, well, delicious. You can test it out at your neighborhood Sephora or get it online or over the phone from HSN.
