Alfie once saw Heidi Klum in the flesh about fifteen years ago, when he was in Australia. He said it's easy to see why she's a supermodel -- she's clearly head and shoulders above the rest of the population in the looks department. Heidi did get lucky with her looks, but she's not just a pretty face. Look at what she has accomplished in just 38 years! She's a supermodel, designer, "Project Runway" host, producer, mother and wife.
Now Heidi has added perfumer to her resume. Her new perfume, Shine, has just launched in stores; Heidi Klum Shine eau de toilette can be found at Rite Aid Stores nationwide. The .5 oz bottle is $17 and the 1oz bottle is $28.
Shine oriental scent made of pink peppercorn, pear and mandarin top notes; a mimosa absolute, sunflower, and lily of the valley heart; and musk cosmone, vanilla and Venezuelan tonka bean drydown. Rite Aid sent me a small bottle of SHINE to try out for myself, and not being a perfumer, I couldn't exactly identify with any of those scents. All I know is that Shine is a really nice fragrance that could be worn during the day or night. This is no light, fruity, girly fragrance -- it's definitely for a woman, but it's not grandmotherly at all. The scent stays on your skin for quite a while, and you smell nice the whole time. In my opinion, the scent merits a more refined, expensive-looking bottle, but it's not a big deal. Alfie has given Shine a thumbs-up, saying any man wouldn't mind dating a woman who smells like that.
