This is yet another fragrance I bought quite cheaply from the site frgrancedirect.co.uk it cost me £12.50 for a 30ml bottle which had a recommended retail price of £23.
The packaging looks quite attractive with a silver night like looking picture on the front with some white stars. The bottle is also silver, and has the typical trademark on the bottle of like a necklace going around the bottle with a Jlo sign on.
The bottle is easy to open up you just pull the lid off and replace when you have done with it, its really that simple, the bottle and packaging are very eye catching yet pretty basic at the same time.
Top notes of this perfume include mandarin and passion fruit and other notes include rose, jasmine, peony and pink musk. Si as you can imagine this perfume smells very fruity, but its a nice fruity smell, with a mixture of scents so you can not really just place your finger on one scent. I would wear this perfume more for the night time, as it does seem to be more of a going out scent and maybe a little too sweet and strong smelling to just wear through the day, this is another perfume I have been complimented on smelling nice, as it does have a pleasant smell to it, although I do find it slightly strong at times, but that maybe the amount I tend to spray on loll.
The perfume does last all night with no need to reapply and I have still smelt this on me when I have woke up the next morning, so it does last very long, and to be honest it always smells better to me once it gas been on for a couple of hours. As to whether I would buy this again I am not too sure, it does smell really nice but its a little too sweet and fruity for me, and I don't want a perfume that smells better to me after I have worn it for a couple of hours.
J Lo Glow is definitely my favorite celebrity scent. I've been wearing it since it first came out and I love it. The scent is suitable for daytime and nightime as it has a sweet but suculant smell. This is one of very few purfumes that still smells at the end of the day, as it has huge lasting power! The bottle is an obvious modern design and looks great alonside other purfumes on my shelf. I would recomend to anybody who likes a very sweet, light and sexy scent. This purfume is great to take on holliday as it gives off a spiritual and carefree vibe, leading me off into a mystical trance. The 'after dark' name creates a mystical question, until you smell it, and you completly understand why its named as it is. A couple of sprays is just enough for the long lasting luxorious scent, which means the bottle will last even longer. An all round great scent!
I really like this perfume and I think it is a great evening perfume. I saw this perfume in Debehams back in January 2007 during the sale season - sadly this perfume was not in the sale as it had only just come out. But I gave it a try and see if it was a perfume I would buy in the future and yes it was!
I saw the box and I thought it was a good advertisement as it was advertising an evening perfume, especially with the stars that were shown on the box. And reading the name of the product you do glow after dark.
The bottle was the same as Jennifer Lopez's glow perfume but this time it was silver and you couldn't see the liquid which was interesting and unusal for a perfume. But however, it does make the product different which is a nice touch, cause it sometimes bugs me when I see the liquid wooshing around the bottle.
However the smell of the perfume attracted me as it smelt fruity and sweet floral that had been clashed in together and that what made the perfume smell so nice! But it had a good smell for an evening perfume.
It is sold in all Superdrug and boots stalls however it may be not as cheap as other J.LO perfumes - as a 30 ml will cost you approx 13 pounds, a 50 ml around 17-18, 75 ml nearly 30 pounds, however this does depend on where you would buy the perfume.
I would buy this product and it is a nice perfume for a night out, however the one problem about this product is that it is not handbag size, so sadly it won't fit in my evening bag and ends up staying at home and it won't last all night either, but at least it last some of the night.
I'm going to give this product four out of five stars, I would have given this a higher rating if I didn't mention the disadvantages.
This first time I smelt this perfume in a shop, I know I have got to get it. So I hinted to my parents and then received it as a present from them at Christmas. And over Christmas I used this all of the time, but still now I have half a bottle left, which I think it brilliant.
You can buy them in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml. I have personally never had the 30ml one, but the 50ml and 100ml I have had. The 100ml I had came in a set, with shower gel and body lotion, which was lovely. But I'm not quite sure if the box sets are only for Christmas.
I would say that Glow after dark is initially strong when you first spray it. Having said that I would not say that it is a bad smell, not at all! Glow after dark is a fresh smell, which has a hint of fruit, making it a clean scent that is not overpowering.
The thing I like most about this perfume is that because it is a strong scent, you don't need to spray a lot on you, unlike some perfumes where you have to use half a bottle to even smell nice!
Also another good thing is that once sprayed it does last a long time. Which is defiantly something I look for in a perfume, who really wants a perfume where you have to re-spray it every half hour! I usually only wear this perfume at night time because I find it can be a little strong for during the day, and I prefer wearing something more sweeter and lighter in the day time.
The bottle is just as nice as the perfume inside it! The bottle has a long neck and is quite tall. It is a lovely shiny, opaque silver colour, which makes it look all the more sophisticated! Around the neck of the perfume if a little charm saying JLO on it (the initials of Jennifer Lopez, the actress and maker of the perfume).
On Jennifer Lopez other perfumes you also receive these charms and thinking back to just how many of her perfumes I have bought, I think I have loads of these! The only problem I have with the bottle is that it is quite awkward to take out in your handbag because of the size of the neck of the bottle. Not as much the 30ml is awkward, the 50ml and 100ml, I would never bring out with me because of the size.
There are many places that sell Glow after dark. The prices range from place to place, but I would look out for offers on them.
30ml = £12.00 (approx)
50ml = £15.00 (approx)
100ml = £20.00 (approx)
Glow after dark by Jennifer Lopez is a beautiful perfume which is defiantly worth the money. I would recommended it to anyone and as soon as I run out of this, I'm heading out to buy myself another one!

On first application GLOW AFTER DARK is sweet and fruity. Some people find it too sweet, and it did start to get to me after a few wears.
The top notes of passionfruit and lychee apply strongly and sweetly. I normally like sweeter fragrances, but this is very artificial. The top phase is long lasting and lasts partially through the heart notes.
The fruit is too strong for me to pick up on the floral notes in the heart. I've checked the scent notes, and can see that 2 key scent notes that are in GLOW AFTER DARK are the same as the original GLOW, but this fails to remind me of the clean sophistication of the original.
I adore the soft base. The gentle woody notes finally gave me a sense of the original [and still the best] Glow with their simple, uncluttered, cleanness.

I don't like the space age, silver bottle. It sort of looks like something you'd find in a sex shop. If I'd been involved, I'd have gone for a nice smoked navy. Maybe I'd have thrown in some diamante to replicate stars.

Other buying considerations

For a fragrance that applies so strongly sweet the lasting power isn't that great; It burns down within 4 hours.
As the name suggests GLOW AFTER DARK is best suited as evening wear. It's too full on for casual use and too sweet for work.

- - - - - - - - -
All in all, I find GLOW AFTER DARK to be a younger, sweeter version of MIAMI GLOW. It's a shame that they decided to make the fruit notes the sole focus, as I love the base, and if the middle floral notes had been noticeable the fragrance wouldn't have turned sickly on me.
I think it'd be best to use GLOW AFTER DARK in the fall/winter as the sweetness in too much in the warmer weather.

There is also matching shower gel and shimmery body lotion available in 200ml bottles.
GLOW AFTER DARK is a limited edition release so it's become hard to find it in stores. Many online sellers still stock it though.
I never really liked the idea of celebrity perfumes, but after trying a couple I realised that some of them were pretty impressive. After trying a previous perfume by Jennifer Lopez and being quietly impressed when I saw Glow After Dark I couldn't resist giving it a try.
** Perfume Packaging **
From what I have seen, the majority of Jennifer Lopez (J Lo) perfumes are all in the same tall and slim smooth shaped bottle. Almost genie type bottles that if you give them a little rub you might get granted three wishes. (If only!) The reflective silver bottle and black detail really gives it a sultry feel and does give the imagery of things shining in the dark. It works really well with the 'Glow After Dark' name. To be honest, although he bottle is rather unique, it does come across as slightly tacky. With a jewel encrusted JLo it does scream cheap glamour. But nonetheless, a different eye-catching bottle.
** The Heart Notes **
The heart scents (otherwise known as the middle notes) are what makes up the main body of the perfume and is usually what catches the most attention and appeal. The heart notes are most apparent within an hour of wearing the perfume and generally last throughout the life of the perfume on the skin. So when people ask 'oh what's that smell?' it's usually these notes that they can sense. The heart notes in this perfume are...
Passion fruit, orange flower, pink musk. Rose, jasmine and patchouli.
It seems to be a sweet combination with a floral balance. I imagine it to be quite a powdery smell due to the pink musk, but I was expecting slightly heavier ingredients due to the mysterious look of the bottle, but looks can be deceiving after all.
** Wearing The Fragrance **
This perfume is the fourth offering from the Glow range and where the other perfumes have been light and innocent; this in comparison is warm and charismatic. Glow after dark is supposed to represent the girls on a night out with the anticipation of what excitement the night has in store. Rather dramatic for a perfume but I can comprehend to some degree what they are trying to do here.
The perfume is a heavy scent which is for night time and evening use. The scent first sprays out very strongly and in my opinion comes across almost medicine like. Quite sweet and the orange flower and pink musk really stands out. It tends to settle very quickly and leaves a strong floral scent but with a very deep musk lingering around it. You only need a couple of sprays overall because it is very strong and you may find it slightly overpowering.
I find that the scent smells a lot nicer once the heart notes become apparent after 10 minutes or so and the musk is still strong but he floral side settles down and the balance between floral and sweet evens out. It becomes quite creamy and this is what makes it a seductive fragrance. It really is quite pleasant once it settles down.
It definitely is an evening fragrance as anything this musky shouldn't be worn in the day and it also in my opinion is far from a summer fragrance but it is still relatively vibrant and so perfect for the Christmas parties leading up to the festive season. It does last a good amount of time and is still apparent after a few hours which is great for a night out as you don't have to keep re-spraying.
The overall scent is quite exhilarating and although it is a warm fragrance it isn't lacking in any energy. It is strong floral smell, and slightly synthetic but I somewhat expected that due to the look of the bottle. There is nothing that comes across as natural about this product unlike some of JLo's more gentle sweeter perfumes, yet this still seems ok if subterranean floral is your thing.
** Price, Availability & Other Products **
As with most perfumes the price varies depending on where you got and what size you get. I would always advice you to look online as there are so many perfume retailers now. I bought this from the perfume shop during their sale, where the 100ml bottle was only £19.99. On Amazon.co.uk the 100ml is approximately £32.50 and the 50ml is approximately £19.99
Also available in the Glow After Dark Range By JLo:
Eau de Toilette 50ml
Eau de Toilette 100ml
Night Bright Body Lotion 200ml
Liquid Pearl Shower Gel 200ml
** Recommendation **
Wild, Sexy, Breathless.
That is the tagline for Glow After dark. It is a relatively seductive perfume because of the rose and musk; however it didn't leave me breathless. It is slightly too strong for my liking and I prefer sweeter perfumes that are a bit lighter and seem to settle for evenly.
I would recommend this to floral and musk scent lovers, and it would be a great gift for someone who tends to be a bit of a party animal as it would fit in well with an untamed character as the scent is rather unruly in how it explodes out of the bottle!
Other then that, this perfume it isn't for every day use and I won't be buying it again purely because the fragrance for me is a bit too synthetic and I am not a floral fan.
"Thank you for reading."
'Glow after dark' is Jenifer Lopez's 5th perfume release and was released in 2006, and was a spin off from her previous perfume 'Glow'.
The bottle is in the shape of the bottle of an hourglass, being round and thick at the bottle leading up to a skinny and long neck, which resembles Jenifer Lopez herself. Around the bottle is a sort of necklace with black string that has the letters 'J-LO' at the bottom. Around the top of the neck just below the lid, is a black label and in white writing has the words 'Glow after dark'. The bottle itself is silver, which hides the perfume inside. This is the only downside to the perfume for me, as you cannot see the perfume you cannot tell how much perfume you have left, and as the bottle is quite heavy, you can't tell by weight wise either. However, the silver bottle and black necklace gives the perfume bottle a sexy and gorgeous look, once again referring back to Jenifer Lopez herself. The bottle size is deceiving as you think you will run out soon, but the perfume seems to last for ages, which I love!
The perfume comes in a silver/grey box that mixes the two colours throughout the box. It also has bright silver metallic stars on the box, and the words 'Glow after Dark' and 'JLo' on the front on the box. The box fits in with the perfume bottle very well and contrasts with the name of the perfume as well.
The perfume has a gorgeous strong scent that is powerful yet not too overpowering. I can honestly say the perfume lasts all day and all night, and there is no need to top up! I adore the smell, it has a fruity smell yet not citrus, and it has an exotic smell. Due to its smell, this perfume is definitely a night perfume, and is great for when you are going out and want to smell gorgeous all night and you don't have to worry about topping it up! However, I love this perfume so much I use it for the both day and the night, and I always get complemented on how strong and lovely I smell!
You can buy this perfume in a 30ml bottle, 50ml bottle and a 100ml bottle and a gift set. The gift set contains a 50ml bottle, and a 25ml (I think or it may be 20ml) tube of body lotion and shower gel. It is though disappointing on the sizes of these tubes as they are small, however they do last long. Both body lotion and the shower gel have a gorgeous smell to it. However one thing I dislike about the body lotion is that it contains glitter, as I am not a fan of glitter. However, it is lovely to wear the body lotion all over your body and spray the perfume when your going on a night out, as the smell is just absolutely gorgeous.
I have found that since the perfume was released in 2006, the prices have come down and it is now quite cheap to buy, making it even cheaper to buy the 100ml for a longer last! However, since it was released a long time ago, not many stores still sell this, however I am able to pick up the perfume in boots, super drug etc.
Every year this is on my Christmas list without fail, it's first on my list! Last Christmas I received 1 bottle of the 50ml, one gift set and one 100ml, and I have still yet not used the 100ml!
I would recommend this perfume to everyone; it is by far my favourite perfume of all night! No matter what perfumes are out I always go back and buy this one. And out of all the celebrity perfumes I own (and I own too many!) this is by far the best out of every single one! The scent is gorgeous and the bottle is, and also the price is cheap making it all the better!
Glow after dark is the newest edition from the Jennifer Lopez range of perfumes. I am not usually a fan of celebrity perfumes although I have gave a few of them a go but I had a pleasant suprise with this one. I really like it and I wear it as my evening perfume, if I am going out for a night out with the girls or a nice romantic meal. It is very well titled as 'Glow after dark' as it is 100% an evening scent, it is deep and sexy with a unique twist to it.
I was given Glow after dark as a gift from my fiancee for christmas so I am not entirley sure what he paid for it but I can tell you that the prices range roughly from £20- £40 and come in a range of 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles.
I few little squirts lasts all night unlike alot of other dissapointing scents that need constantly topped up.
The bottle is an hourglass shape, reminisant of J-lo herself, it has a chain around the centre with diamante J-lo emblem on it and the bottle colour is silver. I am not too fond of the bottle, I think the silver looks a little tacky and plastic but other than that I am happy all round.
JLo Glow after dark what a treat, i wasnt dissapointed about this edition to the j-low collection.The bottle is another grate one rounded at the bottom leading up to a thin neck at the top with a simple lid to finish it off, its a silver colour with a silver pendant featuring JLo in diamontes draped around its middle. The scents include melon,passionfruit jasmine and pink musk. The fragrance is fruity but not overly i thought it was a very sensual and sexy scent, it could be worn throughout the day but i think its suited more to nights out due to its charismatic effect, it also screams fun as it leaps on to your skin. Prices range from about £25 for 30ml to £50 for 100ml, so a little exspensive but ive found for me it lasts quite a long time just depends on how frequently you are planning to use it. So another great Jlo scent thats fruity sexy and sensual, that acts as a great addition to any girls night out
I recieved this perfume from my mum as an 18th birthday present and at 21 now I still have not strayed from using this regulary.
A scent for anytime of day, a nice fragrance for work and also very sexy for a night on the town.
Its bottle is absolutly gorgeous, it is a mist glass colour with a tiny delicate diamonte necklace as a detial (which when finished with a bottle i tend to take off and keep as it so pretty).
Its easy to spritz on as a basic perfum you just take the small lid off at the top and push the spray down.
I would recomend this perfume for those ladies who love to be complemented on frangrances that they are wearing because it is strong, but with subtleness as well. I have not had any complaints when I have worn this only , people asking "what is that your wearing?"
Overall I would recomend this fab perfume.
My boyfriend bought me this perfume at duty free on his way back from Holland. It cost him about 29euro at the time, last xmas.
Its got a lovely looking bottle, silver with a sort of necklace around the bottle with a JLo name in diamonte as the pendant.
The box is also nice looking and I have kept it to keep the perfume in.
Its easy to spray just take off the cap at the top and push the spray down.
Its definately more a nightime perfume but I tend to wear it all day and night as I like the smell.
I have had it since xmas 07 using it most days and it still hasnt run out, the bottle size is quite deceiving. I though I would run out of it in a few months!
The smell is quite strong but in a good way, it lasts all day, and is quite fruity but not citrus fruit.
Its a beautiful smelling perfume, one that you could really wear for years and it is definately becoming my signature smell! For women who like a different smelling perfume then definately get this one as it is so different to the Chanel and other brands like that.
I had successfully avoided contact with all celebrity fragrances as I find the whole idea kind of naff, until I was given a sample of this eau de toilette. I expected it to be horrible but was pleasantly surprised, it is actually quite lovely.
It smells delicious, fresh and fruity but in a subtle faint way which is where the "after dark" part comes in I think. It's not really what I would go for normally, but it makes a change and I think it's best to be open minded. It makes me want to eat my wrist now I have sprayed it on to refresh my memory, especially after a while when it goes kind of chocolatey. It is not an overpowering fragrance, it's quite delicate but not so delicate it's difficult to smell. It doesn't smell artificial.
Like most conventional perfumes, however, I find it does not last very long. I don't mind reapplying it but some people do and also this means that the bottle runs out faster.
I might buy this for myself if it would not be horribly embarrassing and bewildering to all those who would see a slightly goth young woman buying a Jennifer Lopez perfume!
I was given a 30ml bottle of Glow after Dark by JLO as a present for my birthday so I'm afraid I can't tell you how much it cost although i can probably easily find out!
I really love this scent, and ladies it is definitely a night-out evening scent. It smells floral with a hint of musk and slightly fruity. It is a subtly exotic smell and is not overpowering.
It is a eau de toilette, natural spray, vaporisateur.
The box is attractive looking, dark in colour with a charcoal metallic top that fades into black towards the bottom. The front is dotted with different sized silver stars with eight points. The words Glow after Dark is written in large but then white font while the signature 'JLO' is in its distinctive 'bubble bold' white font.
The bottle itself is similar in shape to the other perfumes by JLO such as Glow, Miami Glow (why on earth they discontinued this perfume is beyond me, perhaps they're all limited?), etc etc. It's a cylinder shape that tapers at the top, a bit like the Davidoff Cool Water bottles.
Around the midsection of the silver bottle are two black strings falling over the front in a 'v' with the signature 'JLO' in 3d metal lettering, emblazoned with black 'jewels.'
Near the top of the bottle, just under the small cap which blends in with the shape of the bottle, is a black band aroudn ti which reads in silver dotted world 'Glow After Dark.'
I've just asked my boyfriend how much it cost him (rude I know) and he replied that he doesn't know and can't remember, and was probably around £25...
You can easily find this perfume in Superdrug, Debenhams probably and Boots (highly recommended because then you get advantage card points!)
I love this perfume, it's got a great look, great name but more importantly a great smell and the 30ml bottle is slim and small enough to fit into your handbag - Perfect!
