Judy Garland was a mega-star from childhood onward. Who could ever forget her as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz?! A special edition 100th birthday commemorative bottle of Judy Fragrance by Vincenzo Spinnato ($140/3,3 fl. oz.) was launched on what would have been her 100th birthday on June 10th. 2022. Advicesisters.com was lucky enough to snag one of these special bottles.
Judy Garlands’ Children Honor Her:
Mr. Spinnato is a certified nose and President/CEO of TurnKey Beauty Inc. Judy’s family including Lorna Luft, Joey Luft Liza Minnelli, and the Judy Garland Trust signed on with TurnKey Beauty to make this special fragrance. honoring their mother.
The first thing you can’t help but notice is the flacon. The red glass reminds us of the ruby slippers in the wizard of Oz. The topper reminds me of an art deco tower–very glamorous. Of course, the label, overleaf, and the outer box also have Judy and 100 Limited Birthday Edition on them.
What Does Judy 100 Smell Like?
“It smells like Mama!” — Liza Minnelli
The oriental/amber scent has key notes of dark orchid, pink pepper, tonka bean, elemi, and the Judy Garland Rose. The original Judy Fragrance has the same notes. Although I can’t get all the notes from the press information I received, I believe that it also has muguet, honey, and pink pepper. With a finish of tobacco, chocolate, musk, amber, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, and patchouli.
FYI: The actual Judy Garland Rose is stunning. It has orange overtones and red edges. It is light, sweet, and floral. You can buy these and grow them in your own garden!
Judy Garland Wore It:
This unisex fragrance was inspired by what Judy Garland herself wore. Smelling it for the first time, I get a hint of rose. Not just any rose, of course. It’s the official Judy Garland Rose. Also in the notes are Dark Orchid, Coriander, and a medley of sensual gourmand and spice notes.
It’s really quite unique.
Based on the notes I thought Judy 100 would be a heavy amber, but really, it’s rather light and fairly floral. The fragrance adjusts to your skin type. This fragrance dries down to a really lovely and sensual fragrance that lasts a long time on my skin. I keep reaching for it on a daily basis!
I can see this as unisex as I don’t believe that fragrance can be assigned to a gender. Therefore, if it smells great on your guy, let him share yours. This would also make a great gift idea for the holidays for fragrance fans and Judy Garland fans.
