Costume National Scent Gloss Eau De Parfum Fragrance Review

Posted by Eautalk on Tue, 11/29/2016 - 8:06 PM

Costume National – the cutting-edge avant garde Italian Design house - has just undergone a shakeup with Founder/Creative Director Ennio Capasa leaving earlier in 2016, but to date, their exceptional perfume collection remains unsullied. Costume National fragrances to me, are a little like a sheep in wolf's clothing. Their minimalistic flacons and stark, monochromatic advertising campaigns suggest that the scents themselves should follow suit: clean, linear, unembellished. But if the truth be known, Scent Gloss is one of many perfumes in the CN portfolio that challenges this very notion.

Launched in 2004, Scent Gloss is a floral fragrance for women which feels strikingly unusual. With their olfactory pyramid heavily guarded (with the exception of musk, orchid and rose), this perfume feels like a bouquet of flowers still wrapped in cellophane! There is a wonderful natural floral feel, which butts up against a sharp, synthetic, almost plasticky accord. Perhaps as the name suggests, it also has a strange 'lip-gloss' vibe; it somehow straddles the line between cosmetics and  polyethylene! This is not to say the fragrance is bad or sickening... rather – it is like a hyper realistic painting – one in which extra-fine details come into focus... even if they don't truly exist in nature.

Clean and uplifting, for women who like to wear something memorable and individual... Scent Gloss is your jam!
