REVIEW

GLASSHOUSE
EAU DE PARFUM COLLECTION

What it is: The Glasshouse Eau de Parfum Collection is a range of four fine fragrances based on the brand’s wildly popular scented candles. The lineup consists of A Tahaa Affair Devotion, Midnight In Milan, Kyoto in Bloom and Forever Florence.

 

What it does: Each Eau de Parfum is designed to transport its wearer to another place, whether that’s the cobbled streets of Milan in Italy, or underneath a cherry blossom tree in bustling Japan.

 

How it does it: Created by a group of international master perfumers, each fragrance is made up of complementary top, middle and base notes that change and develop with time.

Middle: jasmine, heliotrope, peony-rose, lily

Who it’s for: If you love fine fragrances, or want to wear a luxurious version of your favourite Glasshouse candle, the new Eau De Parfum collection is for you.

 

A fun fact to tell your friends: The bespoke faceted glass vessels were created in collaboration with renowned bottle designer Pierre Dinand.

Here’s what a few of our review panel members had to say about the product:

 

“This perfume is absolutely incredible! It smells like the delicious scented candle. It has great staying power, and a little goes a long way. It's such a rich, delectable scent that I just want to keep sniffing all day! If you're a fan of the Tahaa candle, I definitely recommend picking up a bottle of this perfume.”

- Rebecca F on A Tahaa Affair Devotion

 

 

“Wouldn’t normally pick a scent like this but oh my god I'm so glad I did but it is amazing! I always get asked what I'm wearing. It's a lingering scent that stays with you all day. I love it.”

- Simona on Midnight in Milan

 

 

“This fragrance smells absolutely divine! It's the type of scent where you close your eyes and are transported. I put one spray on my top yesterday and received so many compliments already. And, you can still distinctly smell it today. Not only does the scent smell really high-end, but the packaging is beautiful and would make a lovely gift. If you're thinking the price is too high, it is worth every cent. Do yourself a favour and try this fragrance, you won't be disappointed.”

- Ellie on Kyoto in Bloom
