United Scents of America New Jersey Fragrance Review

* The United Scents of America aim to represent each state with their own unique scent.

* 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.

United Scents of America fragrances are available through Amazon.
