Tommy Girl by Tommy Hilfiger
This was the iconic starter fragrance of the 90s that was effortless and preppy and oozing new American freshness like most perfumes of this time period. If you wanted to smell like freshly-shampooed hair, this was your juice. Like everything Hillfiger put out in this decade it seemed to made for the archetypal girl-next-door. She’s brunette, she has access to a dock, and she’s not a girl, not yet a woman. She may or may not be Katie Holmes in Dawson’s Creek. Or Selma Blair in Cruel Intentions. Who can say? She’s heritage looking to get a little hedonistic someday but not today. Today she’s going to soak in a tub with some bath beads shaped like dolphins while listening to her favorite one minute segments of Sugar Ray songs on a HitClips boombox.
Top notes are black currant, camelia, mandarin orange and apple tree blossom; middle notes are honeysuckle, lily, violet, mint, grapefruit, lemon and rose; base notes are magnolia, leather, sandalwood, jasmine and cedar. In real life you’re going to smell like every extra in the music video for Vitamin C’s “Graduation.” Can Heather find a job that won't interfere with her tan?
