Annnnndddd.... We're BACK!
Thank you for your patience during this brief interval in the middle of January. I've had a week to tackle some non related work things and clear my head and regularly scheduled programming should continue from here on out! Today I thought I'd shine a little spotlight on a product I've been using daily since October 2017 - Glossier You. The hyped fragrance everyone rushed to buy, and quickly divided so many across the beauty community. Obviously I'm shining a spotlight on this so it's quite clear which side I'm on. BLADDY LOVE IT.
It's worth mentioning from the get go this is more of a floral/woody scent, but for lovers of my usual fragrance suggestions - don't let this put you off! It's one of the few floral fragrances I like, and has something about it that makes it so wearable and perfect for everyday. It's also one of the few fragrances that EVERYONE comments on after I've applied it - no one can quite place the scent though as it does tend to smell different on everyone. It's laid back, everyday quality also makes it perfect for layering with other fragrances (I love doing this so you always have some kind of continuity with your scent even though you might be wearing a different one - it makes it more personal and still recognisable).
For the fragrance junkies that want the deets on the exact notes; a base of ambrette, ambrox and musk are what you're looking at. I think the musk is a key note that will always draw me to a fragrance - regardless of how sweet or floral or woody something is. Topped off with iris root and pink pepper - two notes I'm not normally swayed by, but the whole mix just feels effortless and soft.
Okay so those are my thoughts. Have you tried it? What did you think? xx
I’ve read the hype but I’m yet to smell this! Sounds lush though
I loved the little sample of this I got with my first Glossier order I just need to get round to buying the full size!
I love this too – totally not my usual style but its so clean and feminine!

I was curious as to what you thought about it. I don’t LOVE musky scents, but I do want to smell this on me just to see what it’s like. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Suzie!
I really have to try it 🙂
Glossier is one of the best brands I have discovered recently 🙂

It sounds lovely, and such a nice idea to wear it under other perfumes, I’ve always struggled with deciding on one signature perfume!
I love this too!! I haven’t stopped wearing it since I got it either, and totally agree with you, it’s one of those scents that you just can’t put your fingers on. I’m also not a fan of floral scents but I love this one. I think it smells like pink pepper! If that’s even a thing haha xx

Do you happen to know if the musk is synthetic? I know Glossier is cruelty free, but musk is typically derived from an animal product so just curious if they source a synthetic or an authentic musk. Thanks!
I believe the majority of fragrance ingredients previously derived from animals are synthetic these days. I guess real musk would be very expensive too, apart from not being PC.
Would love to have a sniff at the perfume! Sounds so good!
one of my favorites, I am also loving the lazy Sunday morning perfume from replica and I think that they layer really well.
Gorgeous post and photos! I’ve not tried this (from much from glossier.. yet!) but I’ve heard such good things from everyone, think it’ll be on my next birthday list.. could make a good valentines present as well? I’ll let my boyfriend know! haha
WELCOME BACK ! so happy to see you are posting again. This fragrance sounds amazing, gorgeous photos as always.
I need to try this! Gorgeous photos!

I’ve heard so much about Glossier over the last year or so and still I haven’t tried any of their products. I really want to in 2018 though xx
I got a sample of this with my first Glossier order and went straight back to buy the bottle. It’s absolutely gorgeous, nothing like I’ve smelt before!
I have not tried it yet. The bottle looks so cute, thank you for the review! I guess I will find it soon 🙂
this is one of my favourite perfume . i really like how this perfume smells and the packaging too.. more than anything i love reading your blocks <3
