NEW! Jennifer Lopez Love And Glamour Eau de Parfum

Her new scent is all about old school, Hollywood glamour and the bottle has a distinct air of Oscar about it. Jenny from the block she ain't but I've got to say this might be my favourite fragrance from the Jennifer Lopez back catalogue. From a visual point of view, the packaging - all pink and flecked with gold - is glamourous, sure, but in a refreshingly modest manner. The bottle, too, despite its award-like aesthetic, is not at all garish, like a myriad of celeb scents around today. In fact, it was apparently inspired by 'the confident and voluptuous physique of a woman.' Wonder who that could be?

As for the fragrance itself, I've surprised myself with how much I like it. The perfume opens with a peachy scent (that will be the top notes of mandarin, guava and nectarine pulp then), before fading into a floral heart of waterlily, coconut orchid and jasmine petals. Sandalwood, musk and amber make up the long-wearing, alluring base. I must confess, it's not my usual sort of scent - for one, I'm not normally a fan of fruity florals - but I've been completely won over. A lovely scent for summer.

Jennifer Lopez Love And Glamour EDP, from £12.50, is available from 3rd April in department stores nationwide. Sx
