* For New Jersey, it’s all about the Jersey Shore boardwalk and amusement parks – kicking off with buttery popcorn and sweets.
* The scent is very realistic and nearly edible.
* The popcorn and sweets meld to become a mix of cotton candy and Cracker Jacks. Sometimes a coconut note is present as well.
* The amusement park smell lasts about three hours before calming down to a sweet vanilla and patchouli blend.
Summary: If you want to smell like an amusement park (in a good way), New Jersey is for you. Priced under $60, its a relatively cheap thrill and while it doesn’t smell like a luxury fragrance – it is definitely fun. I would even venture to say that if Bond No. 9 Coney Island is on your list of favorites, here is a similar scent for one third the price – so it’s definitely worn a sample. Longevity is good for an eau de toilette – lasting about 5 hours on the skin. As you can probably guess, this is a strong gourmand, so if you don’t like sweet, foody smells – stay clear. If you want something light, fun, and easy to wear to remind you of a fun vacation – this take on New Jersey is a fun fragrant trip.
