I bought this unsniffed at Marshalls the other night because I found a 1.7 oz bottle sitting there for only $9.99. What a deal! Boy am I glad I didnt pass it up because it really started to grow on me. This is very pleasant, clean and beautiful! Long lasting too.

yes. yes. yes.
I'm embarrassed to love this so much (because I'm not a fan of SJP nor celebrity fragrances... despite owning two... whatever. shut up(: ). It's a great day scent, refreshingly green and drying down to a sliiiightly sweet richness. Not foody at all, though. I'm a school teacher and this is light enough for me to wear to work without taking up too much air space.

Wow! When I first sniffed this a few years back I thought it was horrible. Old lady came to mind. (Hate that term to describe perfume) I saw it in Marshalls tonight and thought i'd give it another chance. I spritzed some on then went to look at some other things. Wow! What I smelled on the dry down was love. It's a creamy green musky scent. Absolutely gourgeous! An awesome scent for fall and winter. So glad I picked this up again! Will probably go and pick up another bottle for a backup since I'm pretty sure this was discontinued.

I don't know if my nose is defective, or my skin, or what, but I don't get any of the green notes everyone mentions. After the perfume settles into my skin after the first few minutes, I immediately get a warm, musky, sweet scent that is addictive. I saw this at Walgreens on clearance and think I will go back and get another- plus, the bottle is adorable!

I have wanted this scent from first sniff, shortly after it came out. It was different from anything else in department stores and I always spritzed and admired whenever I came across it, but kept putting off purchasing it. I finally nabbed it in Marshall's because I do believe it is discontinued. The initial lavender/chocolate notes come through loud and clear, but the far drydown in a nice mellow musk. It lasts a full 24 hours on my skin. I just may have to get a back up bottle. I much prefer Covet over the pretty-pretty Lovely.

Covet is a captivating blend with a green top note, followed by aromatic lavender in the middle note and warm chocolatey musky amber in the base note. I like how Covet develops on my skin, from the fresh initial phase to the delicious drydown. For me, this is an ideal fragrance for the cooler months, and I have enjoyed several bottles of this since it was launched and I will continue to repurchase. Unfortunately, Covet is harder to come by these days as it has disappeared from most retail shelves but it is still available abroad and online. I consider Covet a rather original composition, not mainstream at all. It is interesting and intriguing in its many facets. Staying power is also quite good, pretty much all day. I hope there will be a relaunch of Covet someday, otherwise I will look for it at Duty Free stores when I need to replenish.

Before this came out, I had read about the notes - geranium leaves, lavendar, chocolate, musk - and was excited to try it. I was sceptical about SJP's perfume-development skills but was surprised by Lovely which, though not my type of scent, is beautiful on the right person; complex, and full-bodied.
When I finally tried Covet in-store, it was another surprise. This was weird - but interesting. Definitely more European in style. Didn't buy it then, as it made me think too much...'do I like it? I'm interested in it...but do I like it?' So I didn't.
However, I had to give full marks for balls and individuality to SJP for creating something so unusual that is aimed at a mass-market, which is probably why it failed - too strange for the crowd. I think she described it somewhere as a 'fougere with estrogen'. It is definitely androgynous, and now that it's sadly discontinued I've picked it up for under $20, and like it much more upon revisiting. There is an underlying earthy richness to the spiky green which I find fascinating - the two sides play against each other.
Let's hope she can be this brave again!

I bought this product when it first debuted in NYC at Macys a few years ago, when Sarah was promiting it. (remember that website that you could find 'clues' on?) Anyway, I really liked the notes in the perfume, and asked what was so different about it. IT was sweet, but not TOO sweet. One of the main promoters (I guess) had mentioned, it's chocolate. CHOCOLATE???? It didn't smell sugary, but almost a cocoa tune. It's not my signature scent, but hey, when I'm craving some of the naughty candy - I spray this on ;-) No calorie guilt LOL.
When I did buy this, I spent $100 on the perfume/lotion. I took off one lippie for the overall rating because of that. Otherwise, it's nice.

When I first applied this, it smelled fresh and rich at the same time and I thought it was really pretty and considered purchasing it. However, after about 20 minutes of drydown time, it morphed into a spicy, grassy, moldly hodgepodge that I couldn't wash off fast enough. It definitely is not for me, but I gave it three lippies because the lasting power is excellent, which I learned because it took several hours before I had a chance to wash it off, and because this will probably appeal to ladies who like green fragrances and have a body chemistry that is favorable to them.

This scent has definitely grown on me!!! This was recommended to me because I love 'green' fragrances but when I tried it at first I found it quite non-descript (but then I'm used to wearing such in-your-face fragrances as Paloma Picasso, Fendi, Bandit etc.) Something made me come back and try it again instead of putting it up for swap. It seemed to reveal itself to me over the next few wears and now I feel I appreciate it's nuances.
It starts off green in a citrussy/appley sort of way, stays leafy for a while and then dries down very musky and sweet. For the life of me I cannot detect lavender even thought I know it's scent very well, having lavender shrubs growing profusely outside my sitting room window. I suspect the 'lavender' they are speaking of is the type one finds in smelly candles and therefore completely unrelated to the real thing. Nor can I detect chocolate but it could be the sweetness in the dry-down.
All-in-all, it is something I could wear very easily to any occasion and in any get-up and I find it addictively pretty. Wish it could make me so by association!!!

Mmmmmm yummy! I purchased this at the airport a few days back and I am in love. Just like another reviewer pointed out, this smells very much like Trouble by Boucheron, but this is easier to wear. While Trouble is strictly for night time wear, this can be worn all day long. Covet starts of with a sharp citrusy note and then dries down to a lovely, comforting and very sexy, warm scent. I clearly detect the chocolate note and also some kind of musky vanilla. I can't stop smelling my wrist. A definite keeper!

Smells like mildewed grass cuttings! Yuck! I worked at the fragrance counter of a department store for years, and I can honestly say that no one I worked with liked ANY of SJP's fragrances. We had high hopes for her line, but we all were disappointed in each one of the scents. In fact, we had more returns/exchanges on Lovely, Covet, and the rest of the line than any other fragrances we carried. A customer who was returning some told me that since she was such a fan of SJP's fashion style, she just assumed she would love the fragrances, too. It didn't take long for the "powers that be" to have us place the whole line on clearance. Sad...but maybe she will come out with some great scents in the future!

I love, love this fragrance. I don't care if the rest of the world hates it and its been discontinued...it just means its easier for me to stock up. This starts off green but just briefly it then turns into a foodie (vanilla, chocolate)-floral-musk- along the lines of flowerbomb but not (I hate flowerbomb) but not so in your face. The staying power is mediocre but fragrances often disappear on me... Why do I always love the discontinued ones? I must have odd skin chemistry!

I really like this scent. It's green but not tart. It's feminine and sweet but not cloying. But it smells so dang familiar... I can't put my finger on it, but it definitely is a dupe of another fragrance.

I put this on and did a double take on the bottle because it smelled so similar to my beloved Boucheron Trouble. There were some notes in there that also reminded me of Deep Red. So if you like either of those scents mentioned you may like Covet. No vanilla fruity floral here. Long lasting and I found a bottle at TJ Maxx for around 20 dollars. Can't beat that!

I really wanted to like Covet, I had heard such intriguing things about it. On the first spray I definitely smelled the bitter greens and lavender. Thankfully that died down about 15 minutes later and the chocolate and honeysuckle notes came out to play. This was a lovely combination actually and I kept sniffing my arm. It dried down to an almost nonexistant ambery powder.
I will admit that I am a bit of a diva. I like to have my scent envelop me, leave a faint trail as I walk through the room. Covet has no "waft" for me. I had to stick my nose against the place I had sprayed it to smell anything, and the lasting power was incredibly weak on me. Although the bottle is gorgeous, I would not purchase for the aforementioned reasons.

YUUk!!! to me it smells like mosquito repellent!! It was cheap (£7 for 50ml) but I think I will stick with my Cacharel Amor Amor :) x

I like this, its not something Id usually choose which is weirdly why I chose it. Its more of a mature kind of smell, I prefer light, summery kind of scents but in this you can really smell the chocolatey notes in it. Its nice for a change, I would suggest checking it out. Its not something to be ordered online though, you need to get in the store and have a good sniff because its not a scent to everyones taste. Really pretty bottle, I got the 100ml for £12.50 recently so was a good bargain, I dont think I would have paid full price for it though...

I didn't like Lovely by SJP as it just smells too BO like to my nose (however my husband did like it!). Covert, I'm still in two minds about. It starts off quite lemony and sweet then I get the chocolate and amber in the drydown with maybe a hint of the vertiver. Then it smells a little powderish and somewhat plastic to me, as others have mentioned like a clean diaper almost! I'm not really sure if I would buy this again as I bought this bottle quite cheap. I read in an interview with SJP during the launch of her Lovely collection that this was her husbands favouite of all her fragrances. I've been watching SATC re runs on TV and I think that had an influence on me wanting to try this.
