Out of SJP's newest trio, this one had me the most curious. As much as I wanted to love it...it just reminded me way too much of vanilla downy. And of course, after that thought crept into my head, it ruined the whole olfactory experience. Love her other scents, but her newest launches seem to be a complete miss for me. (Who knows though, like with her others, I just may revisit them years later (hopefully, when they're on deep discount) and develop pure love.)

I tested SJPs Dawn and Twilight today. I didn't really like either of them all that much, except for the opening of this scent. It started out very woody, almost like cedar and just a touch sweet. After it dried down a teensy bit it became on me a nice cozy sheer sandalwood and musk blend that was as soft as powder. It stayed like this for about an hour and a half, and now in the final drydown it smells faintly fruity and floral and I am glad that it is very very close to the skin and I can barely smell it. The opening is nice but since the drydown is terrible on me it falls into the No Sale category.

Twilight is the third entry into the Lovely Collection from Sarah Jessica Parker. It may as well have been Shalimar from Guerlain, it smells like a direct rip off. Unimaginative and not nice at all.

I tested the "Dawn" pefume at Ulta and loved it, but did not purchase that day. I had several scents on and wanted to come back another day with a blank slate. I loved it. Such a light floral scent. Which suprised me as I am more of a musk wearer. This is just so light and airy. The only reason I gave it a 4 is I found that I need lots of sprays to have enough scent. I even confirmed with my Hubby that I didn't over do it. With say Chanel 1 or 2 sprays is plenty. With this I need 5 or so.
But I really like it. I would purchase it again. Sephora didn't have it at the time I purchased it. Not sure if it's only sold at Ulta. Also I thought $38.00 was a great price. Overall a great scent that I can't imagine anyone would find offensive.

Hmm ... I want to give this a 2.5, but rounded it up to a 3 because it does have potential. How well you can wear Twilight depends on how well you can wear amber notes. Thus far, the only amber I've found that works perfectly for me is BBW Sensual Amber, because it has a "tanginess" to it. SJB Twilight is very light and powdery, and agree with the first reviewer in that it has a smokiness to it that I can't define -- but it's more the smokiness of a vanilla candle that's just been blown out rather than the smokiness that I associate with incense or pipe tobacco. The floral quality is very faint on me -- if I really open my nostrils and sniff hard, I can detect jasmine in the drydown. Other than that, I'd say it's a pretty powdery amber. Not as powdery as L'Artisan's amber, but definitely close to it. I'm hoping that it'll grow on me in time. Right now, I'm not loving it or hating it -- I feel very neutral about this scent.

Launched with SJP's The Lovely Collection, Twilight intrigued me most out of the three fragrances in the series. With notes like jasmine, amber, sandalwood, musk and incense (and a beautiful name) this called out to me so loudly I rushed to the stores to find it upon its release.
Sadly, this isn't working for me. It's very strong, and on my skin it's all smoke and musk, with a hint of peppered vanilla. Theoretically I like the idea of how it sits on my skin - like I've been sitting in a smoky old bookshop where vanilla incense is being burned and the scent has seeped into my clothing and my hair. But realistically I feel like I'm offending people with the strength of it as I walk by.
Since I do have this bottle (simple and pretty in its clear amber container, by the way, with a recycled Lovely cap) I had to figure out how to wear it. I lift up my hair and spritz it on my back of my neck (as far as my arm will stretch). After it fades, it's nearly perfect - soft, smoky and sweet.
