What Glossier You Perfume Smells Like

Glossier perfume review | Space NK
A lot of people discover Glossier You Eau de Parfum when they ask someone what they’re wearing. It’s an unusual fragrance yet universally alluring enough that if you’re wearing it, at least one person will enquire about your perfume. What does Glossier You Eau de Parfum smell like and, most importantly, what will it smell like on you?

Well, it’s a tricky question as Glossier You doesn’t fit neatly into a fragrance family. There are peppery, floral top notes, a sweet centre and a warm, musky base. The brand refers to it as a ‘skin-scent enhancer’ and part of its charm is that it smells different on everyone. Perhaps that’s why it’s one of the bestselling perfumes – and has been since it launched back in 2017.

To help answer the question, we decided to ask the Space NK makeup team to share their thoughts on Glossier You Eau de Parfum, a favourite for Glossier fans.. Over to makeup buyer Julie and our makeup merchandiser Beth…

Julie’s Glossier You perfume review

Julie's Glossier perfume review | Space NK

I’ll be honest, when we first heard that Glossier was launching at Space NK, I was very much excited to get my hands on Glossier Boy Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel-Pomade, £22.00 and the Glossier Cloud Paint Gel Cream Blush, £22.00. For me, Boy Brow is the ultimate brow groomer, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to experiment with the different Cloud Paint shades at last. I hadn’t given Glossier’s perfume much thought. In hindsight, this was a huge oversight on my part.

I can’t begin to tell you how obsessed I am with Glossier You Eau de Parfum, £32.00. It’s fresh and musky, but it’s not overpowering. If I had to sum it up succinctly, I’d say it’s cosy but light. I love that it smells completely different on everyone – it’s the ultimate ‘personal’ fragrance.

After about an hour of spritzing on my wrists, I would say it smelt quite creamy with a hint of floral and the woody undertones had come through with the dry-down. I can’t fairly comment on how long Glossier You Eau de Parfum lasts because I spritz my fragrances throughout the day by habit.

Beth’s Glossier perfume review

Unlike Julie, I made a beeline for Glossier You Eau de Parfum as soon as our samples arrived as I have several friends who are obsessed with this perfume. However, it genuinely does smell different on each of them, so it’s hard to pin down the main notes.

On me, I think the creamy musk notes came through quite a bit, which I loved as I feel like they’re cocooning and comforting without feeling cloying. I tend to lean towards quite clean, fresh scents rather than anything too heavy or floral, so Glossier You worked for me perfectly.

I spritzed it onto my wrists, hair and clothes at about 11am and still caught wafts of it when I got home after 7pm, so I was pretty happy with how long it lasted.

Our Verdict on Glossier You Eau de Parfum

We don’t say this lightly, but Glossier You Eau de Parfum, £32.00 is a fragrance you must seek out if you’re looking for a new perfume. Due to the unique nature of the scent, we recommend heading to your local Space NK to try it out on your skin – we doubt you’ll be disappointed though.

Does Glossier You Eau de Parfum last?

You can expect the fragrance to last for a few hours on your skin, however if you’re looking for an all-day finish, be sure to invest in the eau de parfum rather than the toilette as it has a higher concentration of oils. Another trick is to layer the eau de parfum with the Glossier Glossier You Solid Perfume, £35.00.
