      Shockingly ... I Like It!

      Even though I like to try out perfumes from many different brands I will never go for the 'celeb' endorsed offerings first - dont get me wrong some of them smell gorgeous but they are never my first choice when perfume shopping. My mom on the other hand is the total opposite and loves buying celeb scents and she is particularly addicted to anything with J-Lo's name on it and Im pretty sure she has owned every single bottle made by her which means I get to try them all out as well and then decide whether or not to buy them for myself - which most of the time I dont. Until I tried this 'J-Lo My Glow' a few months back and I think I can safely say Ill be buying a bottle of this for myself - its not the best perfume ever but I reckon its my favourite J-Lo offering.

      Useful Information:
      Price: Around £30 - 50ml bottle.
      Stockists: Bodycare, Amazon, Boots, Superdrug etc ...
      Other Info: Described as a modern fragrance for feminine & sensual women. This is also available in 30 & 100ml bottle sizes for different prices.

      The Bottle:

      Now dont get me wrong I think the design of this bottle is stunning BUT I think it might have been slightly ripped off as the design for the Mariah Carey perfumes are very similar but Ill just write about this as a stand alone design because when its not compared it is gorgeous! The bottom of the bottle is bulb shaped and circular and is a yellowy/beige shade - dont worry tough as it is more or less transparent so you can always see how much perfume you have left. The lid of the bottle is actually a large frosted glass cherub complete with wings - one side looks like a girl baby and the other looks more like a boy in my opinion so maybe J-Lo designed this bottle with her children in mind which is a cute personal touch I think. The cherub is a lovely touch and it makes the design so much nicer but it doesnt hinder displaying it or carrying it around so its a stunning bottle and effective as well. It might be a rip off of Mariah but in my opinion it is still a stunning design - one that looks great on dressing tables might I add!

      The Scent:

      Im pretty rubbish when it comes to noticing the individual notes in a perfume so I did do some digging around the net to find this list of ingredients:

      Top Notes: Lavender, Water Lily & Freesia.
      Middle Notes: Rose, Peony & Lily.
      Base Notes: Musk, Woods & Heliotrope.

      So, as you might have guessed from those notes this is a very floral offering which is a bit different from other J-Lo scents that Ive tried as mostly they are fruiter. Now normally I dont like floral perfumes but this one is an exception to that rule because this actually works really well on my skin and even though the notes are all mainly floral they dont all jumble up so you are unable to smell one from the other they mix well without becoming too strong or overpowering. Now the best way I can describe the scent overall is like expensive soap - now that doesnt sound very nice but that means this is a really clean, fresh and comforting scent with floral notes and some fruity burts thrown in - although I couldnt tell you where the fruitier notes come from!

      Id say the Rose & Lily notes are the strongest straight away and all the way through wearing this but the Musk & Freesia are also quite noticable throughout - its amazing that none seem to be stronger than the others they just blend so well - maybe 2 of the scents blend together to relaese the out of place fruitiness Im not sure but all those notes make this a gorgeous light yet sweet and floral yet slightly fruity scent. Its a casual scent in my opinion perfect for everyday wear and it is definitely a very feminine fragrance - its one for people that might not usually like floral perfumes. Its a shocker for me to like this one anyway.

      Other Comments:

      Staying Power:
      Id say is about average in my experience as Ive found this lasts around 5 hours on my skin. I do find I have to re-apply it a few times throughout the day but my little bottle will still last me a long time.

      Age:
      I dont think there is an age group who I would recommend this to over any other. Its the type of scent I think most people will enjoy wearing regardless of age - although do try before you buy as no perfume is for everyone!

      Day Or Night? Summer Or Winter?
      Id say this perfume is more suited to daytime wear in Spring & Summer - so perfect for the kind of weather we seem to be having at the moment! I need something a little heavier for the night but this is light and fresh enough to be perfect for daytime/casual wear.

      - - - - - - - - -

      Ill be buying this perfume for myself in the future I have no doubt and I definitely recommend it to others - my mom will be shouting at me for using up all her bottle soon teehee! A full 5* perfume in my opinion.

      Thanks For Reading.

      good quality

      Today i'm wearing this beautiful eau de toilette spray by Jennifer Lopez. I'm not usually a fan of buying celebrity perfumes and brands but as I collect perfume bottles this one had to find it's way into my perfume collection and the bottle is so adorable it had to be mine.
      The eau de toilette is very nice too and so today I have a little on to wear around the house to smell nice with.

      The bottle is a little 1oz bottle with the words My Glow written in a little circle on the front, it is a small glass bottle and the top is the most adorable little angel you will see. I love this design and it looks so delicate and girlie whist standing amongst my perfume collection.
      This will make a great present for Christmas as it looks luxurious as it has a great design and only costs around £19 in the shops or at cheapsmells.com, it is a little more expensive on Amazon and other online sites but google it and you will see there are lots of cosmetic sites that sell it at a reasonable price.
      Searching on the net is the best way to get good bargains although you will have to pay around £4 for delivery but this is still cheaper than some shops in town.

      This is a very sweet flowery perfume with top tones of water lily which is always a strong scent when used with other scents, it also has lavender which is an old fashioned scent and used a lot in perfume as it has a fresh scent that lasts, then the other top tone is fresia which lingers too these combined this gives a good fresh flowery tone that lingers on the skin for a few hours after spraying.
      The base tones are sandlewood like most perfume you will buy this is in as it is used as a base tone in lots of perfumes so too is musk which is also in the base tones as this is a scent that really lingers and attracts too.

      The combination of the tones is very nice and if your feeling in a flowery mood and want people to notice your perfume than this is the one to wear as it lingers and can be smelt by others, it isn't a light subtle scent but a strong scent that you can smell on your skin during the day and others will comment on it as it's noticable.

      I like this one as it is fun, flowery and the bottle is divine. A collectors dream with a good perfume inside the bottle, a little goes a long way and I am happy to recommend it to you.

      Mrs. Lopez knows her perfume!

      Is she still Jenny from the block? I`m not so sure... But no matter what she`s up to, Jennifer Lopez can be very proud and pleased with having created this fragrance, My Glow a lovely and fresh scent that I use for all sorts of occasions, especially when wanting to get my glow on...

      To my nose, this perfume is a very feminine natured scent, it oozes of sensuality and femininity, which I guess you could say about its maker as well... Glow comes in a very nice looking bottle, in clear glass and with a fancy logo in front of it. The glass is of very thick and solid making, so don`t worry if it looks fragile on the picture, it really isn`t! What I enjoyed most about this scent, is how mild and natural it is, not ever becoming too much on the senses, but the fragrance really having a mild nature to it, with that also loosing part of its ability to stay for long periods on your skin. I apply a new spray of perfume after about 3 hours, which is a bit poor, but seeing as I love the fragrance itself, I`m willing to forgive and forget...

      If you should experience the urge to analyze and break down the nature of the scent, you would probably stumble upon these scents and maybe more;
      sandalwood, leaves, rose, lavender, musk and freesia. These are the smells I detected without much "research" , and of these the scent of rose and lavender lingers on my skin the longest.

      For 20.00 you can purchase a 30 ml bottle, 50 ml then the more reasonable price, at it will cost you only 5.00 more. I think this is a very nice and mild perfume, and I would absolutely recommend all girls and women to give it a try!

      Loses a star for poor staying power

      The fragrance
      - - - - - - - - - - -

      If I had to pick the most wearable fragrance out of the J.Lo range I'd go for MY GLOW. similar to the original Glow in a way, as the overall fragrance is soapy clean [via florals inspired by Regency era perfumes], but this edition is lighter and is timeless, and is suitable for all ages and professions.


      I don't notice any difference between the soapy-fresh top notes and heart phrase in all honesty, except that the florals become slighty sweeter, thanks to the developing rose note.

      It's the soft base that really seperates MY GLOW from it's successor; The sandalwood is slightly creamy, which combined with the light powdery notes conveys the full inspiration of the fragrance perfectly [New motherhood].

      Scent notes
      - - - - - - - - - -

      lavender, water lily, freesia, rose, wet leaves, peony, lily, musk, sandalwood and heliotrope.

      The bottle
      - - - - - - - - -

      I like the bulbous shape, but it means that the bottle's base is small, pair that with the cherub wings on the cap and you get a bottle that will topple every time the dresser is nudged. I've watched it roll across the floor many times, but the glass is thankfully thick, so no spills. Yet.

      Other buying considerations
      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

      This was created Jennifer was pregnant and at her most scent sensitive, so it is very light. So light that the perfumers claim a baby could wear it. Not a theory I'd ever test, but I can believe it, since it's so quiet and close to the skin; Average lasting time on me is between 2/3 hours.

      It's perfect for everyday wear, - one spray really helps you to feel cleansed and femimine. Suitable all year round.

      - - - - - - - - - -
      My opinion
      - - - - - - - - - -

      This one I'd really recommend trying - even with the poor staying power. None of the individual scent notes are strong enough to be called disagreeable, so you can wear it anywhere without having to worry about upsetting others.

      It was only released earlier this year, but I've not seen it in any shops other then Debenhams, where I bought my bottle.
