GWEN STEFANI HARAJUKU LOVERS G EDT FOR WOMEN
SGD$45.00 – SGD$51.00
As I understand it, G is the doll meant to represent Stefani, and she clearly saved the best juice for herself. G is a creamy tropical gourmand, heavy on the coconut, and as has been pointed out on MakeupAlley, reminiscent of Bath & Body Works’ Coconut Lime Verbena fragrance crossed with some clean cotton-y musk. It’s not high art, but it’s fun. G was the only one of the 5 that I tried on skin in both the solid and the Eau de Toilette forms. The Eau de Toilette is a considerable improvement over the solid: the citrus top notes, almost impossible to make out in the solid, sparkle in the liquid form. The solid takes longer to bloom on skin; when it does, it feels comparatively flat, and it doesn’t seem to last as long. Still, the solid is basically true to the scent. G was developed by perfumer Steve DeMercado, with notes of mandarin, coconut, apple skin, jasmine sambac, freesia, magnolia, coconut cream, white sandalwood and cottonwoods.
