This Christmas, a friend who works at a fashion magazine sent me an unexpected gift. As I opened the package, I thought to myself, “Is this a joke?,” because looking back at me from under a pile of shredded paper was a bottle of J.Lo Glow ($27).
“Don’t hate,” my friend said through giggles. “You love citrus scents, and Glow smells great on everyone.”
So, against my better judgment, I opened the bottle and sprayed a bit on my wrist. And to my surprise, I did not start spontaneously humming the chorus of “Jenny from the Block.”
The scent of Glow is a mix of pink grapefruit, orange flower, vanilla and jasmine. The mix of musk and citrus is surprisingly lovely, and the perfume is just the right blend of floral and fresh. It’s a softer fragrance, so you do need to carry an atomizer for touch ups if you want all-day coverage.
It might not become my every day fragrance, but the scent is a nice change from my regular perfume (Fresh Hesperides($38)). And once I removed that cheap, narcissistic necklace from the bottle, I was able to look at it without shivering.
