REVIEW | GLOSSIER YOU EAU DE PARFUM FRAGRANCE


Glossier, as you know, is a fun and fresh brand always bringing out new, innovative products. We talked about the Zit Stick (post here) a while ago which unfortunately isn't available in the EU due to stricter guidelines regarding to certain ingredients. Despite this, I did go to the pop up shop in London a while back and pick up the Glossier You (£45 for 50ml). Perfume is very personal but if you are interested in this one here are my thoughts, it's going to be a quick one. If you are wondering why I haven't posted in such a long time, skip to the end and I will explain as much as I can at the moment.

This is marketed as a personal and intimate scent created for the pleasure of the wearer rather than others, for that reason it is not overpowering at all and is actually quite subtle. Often I forgot I was wearing a scent at all. I wanted to try it because the reviews are quite positive and the perfume smells different on everybody (which can be said for most perfumes I believe but I am not an expert). It's hard to describe because it consists of just a few notes, so it doesn't smell floral or fruity or sweet or even musky which are the usual descriptors that come to mind. I did think when I first applied it, that it smelled "clean" and it does smell good, but it faded so fast and wasn't something I noticed as the day went on each time I wore it, which depending on your preference might be a positive. I felt I had to use a lot to feel like I was wearing anything and generally I just didn't think it fit with my personality if that makes any sense. 

I like scents that are more interesting and complex. for £44 I can get a 30ml bottle of Jo Malone's Nectarine Blossom and Honey which is honestly my favourite perfume I have ever tried I think I am going to buy another one as an extremely early Christmas gift to myself. I would love to know if you have tried this perfume and what you thought of it and Glossier in general. It seems I am just not cool enough, really want the Zit Stick though and maybe the Milky Jelly Cleanser. Comment your favourite scents below I would love to know what scents tickle your fancy, sorry I have been absent I just have been feeling really low and unmotivated for the past few weeks and each time I sat down to write it just felt really pointless. Hope that makes sense. Thank you for reading. Take care. 

What scents do you like?

Love

  2. It sounds interesting, although it's a shame it doesn't last long!

    Sorry to hear you've been unmotivated with blogging too!

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend! It's really rainy here so we have another day of indoor activities planned!

  5. I have a tiny vial sample of this scent. I like personal scents for when I am at home or going to places like school or hospital. You do not want to offend any sensitive noses at such places.

  9. I haven't got the chance to try any of Glossier products. They're pretty promising though. I am a perfume hoarder! I can't help it, I love smelling good all the time. My favorite is definitely Flora by Gucci, Bombshell by VS and Vanilla by The Body Shop xx

  10. I haven't tried much form Glossier, but I'm really curious about the skincare range. Too bad the fragrance isn't anything special but you're right, perfume is such a personal thing. Jo Malone can do no wrong and I absolutely adore their scents - my faves for this time of year are Wood Sage & sea salt, and Oak & Redcurrant. x

  12. Interesting concept, but I totally agree, I prefer something that has a base to it rather than the chemical makeup to shift per individual. I hope you're feeling better and motivated enough soon! I go through periods of depression where I feel low and unmotivated too, so I know how you feel. Wishing you the best xo

  13. I actually like subtle scents, but for the price, I think I'll just stick to my favorite Elizabeth Arden Green Tea perfume :)

    I like and used some Glossier products but haven't tried the Zit Stick, I was interested in it until I learned it has Benzoyl Peroxide and that's not my fave anti-acne ingredient at all because it can irritate the skin. The Zit Stick has 5% of it. Plus, I saw 2 influencers who's skin got irritated by the Zit Stick, but we all have different skin so YMMV.

    I tried the Milky Jelly Cleanser too, it's a fairly nice cleanser, though it can't really remove makeup, the rose scent is too strong for me, and it feels just like Cetaphil. I find it a really pricey. I prefer the Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Facial Wash tbh.

  14. I have not tried any fragrance from Glossier. I have a few fragrances like Chanel No.5 is my all time favorite. Currently Valentino Donna is spicy floral is very long lasting. I like when a fragrance lasts a long time. :-)
