Kate Walsh Billionaire Boyfriend

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $22 for a 0.4-ounce roll-on; $45 for 0.5-ounce spray

THE SKINNY: We love Kate Walsh's Boyfriend fragrance for it's earthy, boyish scent. So I was very curious to try the new fragrance in the line, Billionaire Boyfriend.

I'm happy to say, it's not bad. This scent is made with a crazy blend of bergamot, tangerine, black jasmine, velvet orchid, gardenia PLUS a touch of patchouli flower, vetiver, cistus, sandalwood and golden amber. (Whew. That's a lot of smells.)

Billionaire Boyfriend is much sweeter than the original and lacks its almost dirty undertones. I wouldn't wear it every day -- I like the musky scent of the original -- but it's a nice change for every once in a while.

It's a good option for a day of shopping with the girls, but I'm not sure it stirs the visions of "private jets, superyatchs, diamonds and roulette" used in the advertising.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. I wouldn't mind plopping down $22 for the roll-on.

CHECK IT OUT: Like the original, Billionaire Boyfriend is available at Sephora.
