Sarah Jessica Parker thinks scent is more important than style.

The actress – who played fashionista Carrie Bradshaw in the ‘Sex In The City’ franchise – has revealed she worries more about the impact her choice of fragrance will have on the people around her than the clothes she wears.

Sarah mused: “It’s immediately communicating more than your clothes, which we think tell our story, right? But clothes don’t invade anybody else’s space.

“You know how you feel when someone hugs you and they’re wearing a fragrance you don’t care for and it’s stuck on you and you go to the ladies’ room and you try to really carefully, discreetly wipe it off? Or gentlemen in the old days, who liked really strong cologne?

“It’s unique in that way. Your make-up doesn’t do that. Your bag doesn’t do that, your shoes, or your clothes, but fragrance completely lives in both worlds.”

The 50-year-old star released her perfume, Lovely, 10 years ago and recalled the first time she was ever mesmerised by a scent.

She told The Cut: “I was like 15, 16 maybe? Up to that point I was wearing probably Love’s Baby Soft, and she (actress Mary McDonnell) would get up and spray Aliage on every day and I was hypnotised. I saved up some of my money and bought Aliage.

“When I went to do ‘Square Pegs’, I shared a room with my baby brother because he was really tiny. He and I shared this little room in temporary apartments or something.

“One day, he went into my closet and he sprayed all of my Aliage. I was so angry because I had saved up for so long, and he was just like (mimes spraying motion) around the whole closet. I was like, ‘Well, it smells really good in here.'”

    “But former Ntonyiri MP Maoka Maore traces the genesis of Mr Musyoka’s woes to 2007.
    He says when the PNU campaign realised that every opinion poll was not showing favourable results for their candidate, they approached the then ODM-Kenya candidate to step down and announce his support for the President.Mr Musyoka is said to have agreed to the terms whereupon the PNU campaign team helped in organising a rally at Uhuru Park where Mr Musyoka was expected to announce his withdrawal and urge his supporters to support President Kibaki.“To the shock and disappointment of our campaign, Mr Musyoka arrived at Uhuru Park, looked at Wiper flags and announced he would soldier on with his bid and that he would pass in between the two,” he said.Mr Maore says Mr Kibaki’s allies have not forgiven him despite his being appointed vice president. “If the team trusted him do you think we would today be talking about him begging to be admitted into their group. He should have been a front runner merely by virtue of his position as vice president,” said Mr Maore.” The above comments have been copyied from the Daily Nation below.

    Kenyans beware!!!! the 2007/8 violence was planned, funded and executed power-greedy politicians who are still with us. Fellow Kenyans, we should not pretend and if we do, then we are no better than those stupid hypocrites who pay Kenyans to slaughter each other instead of supporting us in our development agenda,
    These hypocrites are still with us, we know them; we should shame them and shun them!!!!!!!!

    Fighting to retain his position in the G7 alliance, Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has yielded to pressure to have outspoken Justice Minister Mutula Kilonzo sacked.
    Kalonzo is said to have delivered a letter to President Kibaki requesting the sacking of the Mbooni MP from Cabinet.
    Reliable sources said the VP handed the letter to the President during a meeting at Harambee House, Nairobi, on Friday.
