Sniff-n-Tell: Desperate Housewives Perfume

10/02/2006 at 03:00 PM ET

Last night when I settled down for my usual intake of fabulous melodrama via Desperate Housewives, I decided to channel the ladies of Wisteria Lane by squirting on a dose of Forbidden Fruit, the Desperate Housewives fragrance. As the name would imply, there is a definite apple-ly smell happening, along with flowers, cedar and vanilla. Is this what Susan smelled like on her first date with Ian? Or would Bree dab this behind her earlobes on her wedding day? Perhaps, but as much as I enjoyed the odorama sensation, I have to say Forbidden Fruit ($50) is a bit heavy and sweet for my liking (plus it made me sneeze). But hey, DH is NOT about being subtle — other fans may like it. Swing by your local Macy’s, test it out and let me know what you think. Or click here to order right now. — Angela Matusik

All My Children also have a perfume out. I don’t care what it smells like (i wasn’t impressed DHW) I will not wear a tv show’s perfume. Bad enough almost every celebrity now has their own frangrence line, but now tv shows. Next up: Fear Factor’s own perfume with the soft sweet smell of tears, musky sweat and a mystery odor (probably bull’s testicals). Wear it without vomiting and you get $50,000.

I have not smelled it yet. Those of you who enjoy the apple fragrance may also enjoy BeDelicious.My favorite perfumes are ‘Romance’ by Ralph Lauren, ‘Heart’ by Clinique, and Adidas ‘Moves’. But usually I wear lotion and body splash from Bath and Body Works, my favorite (Especially for this time of year) is Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin – available online only or at semi-annual sales.
