I picked up the 1.7 fl oz bottle of Kate Walsh’s Billionaire Boyfriend when Hautelook.com  had it on sale for $19.00 (original price $65.00).  It was something I had on my fragrance wish list from last Christmas, and at $19.00, why would I pass that up?

Billionaire Boyfriend Notes:
Bergamot, Tangerine, Green Lush Leaf, Black Jasmine, Black Velvet Orchid, Gardenia, Patchouli Flower, Amber, Cistus, Vetiver, Sandalwood.

I first tried Billionaire Boyfriend during one of my trips to Sephora.  Something about the scent, once it died down caught my attention.   I must admit that in the beginning, it doesn’t smell Billionaire-ish to me at all; it actually smells a bit cheap.  In the beginning, it comes off a little strong and too sweet for my taste; however, as I mentioned before, once it dies down and meld with your body chemistry, you have a nice, seductive and feminine scent.

The bottle of the Billionaire Boyfriend perfume is supposed to be reminiscent of a special reserve champagne bottle with an antiqued platinum-mirrored finish which is supposed to represent “… the wealth and glamour of an old world atelier. “  To be honest, the bottle looks cheap.  I don’t care for the rhinestones around the neck of the bottle top, nor do I care for the semi-matte, platinum-like finish.

If I had to re-purchase Billionaire Boyfriend at the original price, I would not.  I just don’t like how loud and sweet it is in the beginning, which lasts for at least 2-hours, until it finally dies down into a more favorable scent.

    • I'm a fan of musky, woodsy scents too. This one… uggh. at least my sister liked it so I gave it to her. And it was only $19.99

  1. It sucks that Hautelook doesn't ship perfumes to Hawaii 🙁
    It's indeed a long wait to dry down!
