Harajuku Lovers Jingle G Review

Seeking a cute little something to hang from your best beauty mate’s tree this Holiday?

Might I suggest, what is rumored to be, the last of the Harajuku Lovers Fragrances, Jingle G!

Take a look, she’s a little too hard to resist.

Harajuku Lovers Jingle G is little G all decked out in her Holiday finery with a velvet red ribbon tie bow for hanging on the Beauty Tree.

Rumor has it that the Harajuku Lovers chapter is coming to a close. The bags and accessories are all on clearance at Nordie’s Rack and the fragrances have been trickling a little slower down the line (instead of all the girl’s getting a fragrance, lately it’s been G only), plus a mini collection has popped up at Target which could just spell the end of this kawaii collection.

Have no fear, I imagine Gwen has something new and equally exciting in the works…perhaps something new from the Lovers Collection or something completely original and fresh. Whatever the case may be I imagine it’ll be great!

Jingle G isn’t exactly what I expected for a festive Holiday blend but she’s rich, cozy, and oh so warm, which in turn makes her an ideal scent for snuggling by the fire with.

Unlike many of G’s past scents which favored fruity, sweet notes, Jingle G embraces fruity-oriental notes. To me this one has a heavier vanilla base and the floral notes are the most prominent with the fruits being delicate little wisps in the background. Honestly, my nose can’t pick any one note out since it gets a little complicated but hints of Jasmine, Gardenia, a rich, creamy base of vanilla as well as cedarwood are some of the more primary notes with a dry down of star fruit and more vanilla.

It isn’t exactly what I expected from the brand but it is pleasant if you enjoy warmer oriental blends. She has a fairly good throw and a nice linger as well!

On the downside Jingle G is only available in a smaller 0.33 oz and she’s an ickle costly at $25 for this size but hey, she makes a rather lovely little treat for decking out your tree as well as your pulse points!

Available now at Sephora and Sephora.com

Have you smelled her?

    I just need this and punk music to complete my collection! I didn’t collect G all that much, but since the collection is leaving I’m going to try! I have a big size of G of the Sea (I love the water (and swimming!), and heck, my NAME literally translates to man of the sea) because I couldn’t resist the scent. :) I couldn’t stand Love (reminded me of Love’s Baby Soft), and Angel was too sweet. G and Music were my loves, but mainly Music. 😀 I just collected Music because she was my favorite! Now I need G!!

    I was really lucky to pick up a 100 ml (3.3 oz) tester of this on eBay for only about 4 times the price of the 10 ml version and I really love the scent, it’s perfect for Christmas/winter. :)

    Lol – I ordered this unsniffed from sephora.com to get one of the makeup bags with samples! I didn’t really even pay much attention to the scent notes, but those sound like ones that will work with me! I got it just b/c the bottle is so flippin’ cute! :) She’ll look adorable on the tree!

    You say that there’s minis at Target?? Do tell me more about this! Hadn’t heard of these til now!
