Normally at 9 am I’m just beginning my day at the gym or taking my first sip of coffee, but this Tuesday was different. I joined Betsey Johnson for brunch at Milk Studios as she launched her latest fragrance, Too Too. With a “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” theme, Betsey was accompanied by ballerinas from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy and pink frosted cupcakes went hand in hand with champagne (yes, this was brunch).
Betsey, a former ballerina herself, arrived full of energy wearing a hot pink dress with black sneakers as I along with other editors and bloggers clung onto a cup of coffee. The Stephen Petrinio Company performed a special dance for Betsey’s 69th birthday celebration and two super cute DJ’s spun in the center of the room.
The fragrance, Too Too, is very youthful in packaging and scent, which made the atmosphere of the event relevant. It’s very Betsey! Loaded with sweet fruity notes of mandarin, ginger and strawberry layered over jasmine, bulgarian rose, patchouli, sandalwood and vanilla. The fragrance retails for $42-$82 and also comes in a body lotion and roller ball form.
*Launching in October at Sephora.
