The new fragrances were developed by three of Givaudan’s top perfumers: Adriana Medina, well known for her creations for Gwen Stefani and Ed Hardy; Rodrigo Flores-Roux, who has created scents for Tommy Hilfiger, Hugo Boss and Estée Lauder; and Claude Dir, the fragrance creator behind Bobbi Brown and Tommy Hilfiger colognes.
“The Sex and the City series continues to resonate with women worldwide,” said James Costos, vice president, Global Licensing & Retail at HBO. “The appeal of the four main characters, who are as unique, complex and trendy as any woman aspires to be, symbolize the show’s eternal allure. We’re extremely pleased to partner with Givaudan - the global leader in the fragrance industry. Their elite perfumers have developed fragrances that capture the essence of Sex and the City and JTG Trading Company has the expertise to execute our vision and deliver this collection around the world.
“Givaudan is excited about creating these signature fragrances that capture the global appeal of the beloved television series Sex and the City.

The “Sex and the City” perfume captures New York City’s energy and unique sensibility. With fresh top notes of Italian mandarin, juicy blood orange, red and pink berries and a subtle touch of passion fruit, the heart of this perfume is feminine, soft and flowery, with scents derived from jasmine, gardenia leaves and orange blossom. The velvety musk, sandalwood, caramel and amber in the base note provide the fragrance’s final statement of finesse, style and elegance.
“Sex and the City by Night” – the Sensuous Glamour of the City That Never Sleeps
With its sensuous, ultra feminine allure, “Sex and the City by Night” is the perfume equivalent of the little black dress. Fresh top notes of sparkling bergamot, pear blossom, dewy freesia leaves and neroli bring glamour to the fore. The heart of the perfume develops into a lush bouquet of night jasmine, peony, vanilla orchard and a surprising accent of fruity pomegranate, with the base note offering a beguiling, luxurious and slight powdery essence delivered by the warm blend of sandalwood, amber crystals, tonka beans, musk and patchouli.
Both fragrance lines retail from £9.00 for 30ml Eau de Perfume, £15.00 for 60 ml, Eau de Perfume and £22.50 for 100 ml Eau de Perfume.
