I love this.

The moment I smelled Scent Gloss for the first time, I was whisked;  blow-dried straight back in time to the 1980’s: to my friends’ teenage bedrooms, just hanging around and listening to cassettes…….. homework and clothes on the floor, scrambling to find the right thing you just knew was under that piece of paper somewhere; a crumpled 7”, lipbalms, Smash Hits, hairspray – a big eighties jumble of cheap, sweet, things constantly in use.

Scent Gloss, which I think is a fantastic name, is a polished, upbeat, very pink and bright floral of roses, tuberose, orchid, and lush, purple lip-pursed magnolia, all laid shinily over warm, clinging and tender skin musks.

It is a shiny, neat perfume for teenage girls, or at least the teenage at heart. I must confess, though, that I have, on occasion, worn this perfume to work (so god knows what that says about me…..)

    I doubt Scent Gloss is for me, but your review just put a big smile on my face. :)
