Heidi Klum's Shine Perfume

Give Heidi Klum props for being honest when she talks about  what she  did and did not want in her new fragrance Shine, debuting in September.

She tells WWD that " I wanted it to be sensual and feminine, but still luxurious and expensive-smelling - because I think there are so many perfumes out there that smell cheap and too sweet.'

No one ever says that even if it's  sometimes the truth. Now what will be interesting is to see what the three perfumers , including well regarded Aurelien Guichard for Coty,  will come up with. Said to be an oriental it will include top  notes of of pear, pink peppercorn, and mandarin ; mid notes of  mimosa absolute, sunflower, and lily of the valley in the middle; and Venezuelan tonka bean, vanilla, and musk cosmone at the drydown.

My quick non sniffed thoughts?  That it's an oriental is a good sign. That it has pink peppercorn maybe not so much .  The note list is good and it has solid perfumers behind it.  We'll see or smell, soon enough.

Pricing is  $17 for 15ml , $28 for 30ml and $35 for a 50ml bottle .
