Glossier You Eau de Parfum Review

I’ve been trying to write my review of the Glossier You Eau de Parfum since February, as that’s when I got my hands on the full size version of Glossier perfume, and it’s just been so hard to write as the Glossier You perfume is impossible to describe. If you’d like to know more about You Glossier, keep on reading….

When Glossier had a Black Friday sale, I placed an order for some of their makeup products, and during the checkout process, it let me choose a Glossier sample.

I decided to choose the Glossier You Eau de Parfum sample as You By Glossier is a fragrance I was intrigued to try as I’d heard such amazing things about it. Some of my favourite beauty YouTubers had raved about it too, like Kathleen Lights. Kathleen has similar perfume tastes to me, so I figured I’d love You perfume, and I absolutely do.

Glossier as a brand are all about minimalist beauty, so I assumed the Glossier You Eau de Parfum would be a very subtle, middle of the road, barely there kind of fragrance.

I didn’t even try it until months after my order arrived, and I couldn’t have been more wrong with my assumptions.

When it comes to beauty purchases, especially fragrance, I like to look for reviews to see if it’s something I’d potentially enjoy.

But with the Glossier fragrance, it was love at the very first spritz of the tiny sample vial, and I had to order the full size.

I usually try and wait for sales and discounts before placing an order for a full size after enjoying the sample size, but I loved the Glossier You Eau de Parfum so much, I just *had* to order it, which I appreciate will sound a touch dramatic, but it is such a stunning fragrance, and I just had to do a Glossier You review for you.

The Glossier You Eau de Parfum is described by Glossier as the following;

How to describe Glossier You? First you smell the pink pepper—the bright, sparkling, spicy top note that makes a good first impression.

Then you get into the woodsy, slightly sweet heart of the scent that comes from ambrette seeds and warm, ambery ambrox. It’s balanced with iris, a white floral, for a creamy freshness.

It’s not one of those perfumes you wear to become someone else. Mostly, it smells like you: soft, warm, familiar. We designed it to feel open ended, like it’ll grow with you no matter where you are in your personal evolution. This is not a finished product. It needs you 😉

What makes the Glossier You Eau de Parfum so difficult to describe, is that it changes scent for the duration you wear it on the skin, and I’ve never experienced that with a fragrance before. Sometimes it smells fruity, sometimes it smells musky, and sometimes it smells warm and sweet.

I know that makes it really unhelpful when writing a fragrance review, but You perfume Glossier truly one of those scents you have to try for yourself as it does smell different on every single person depending on your natural pheromones.

I love that you get almost wafts of the Glossier Perfume You at random points during the day, and it’s the most complemented fragrance I’ve ever worn.

Everyone wants to know what the Glossier You fragrance is, and I feel like that’s always a good way to gauge how amazing a fragrance is.

I’m so glad Glossier offer the Glossier Eau de Parfum as a sample when purchasing anything on their website, so if you are planning on placing a Glossier order at any point in the future, you have to try the Glossier You Eau de Parfum, as it has now become my number one favorite perfume and my signature scent. I love, love, love it, and I hope this Glossier perfume review was helpful for you!
