Confession time: I legitimately enjoy Jersey Shore.
I laugh when Snooki laughs. I cry when Pauly D cries. (Although Pauly D never cries, because he has the emotional range of a teaspoon.) Despite my best efforts, I remain deeply invested in Sammi and Ronnie’s relationship. I’m telling y’all, there are some deep human truths lurking behind the spray tans and hair extensions. Finally, I have found a fragrance worthy of my beloved Jersey Shore cast: United Scents of America New Jersey.
Remember when Miss Dior Cherie claimed to have a “caramelized popcorn” note? USA NJ calls Dior’s bluff by actually smelling distinctly of kettle corn. This salty, buttery note sets New Jersey apart from other fragrances on the market. This is exactly the kind of sweet, fun scent that Snooki or J-Woww (maybe just J-Woww, since Snooki is now contractually obligated to wear her own scent) would spray on before they hit the boardwalk to ride the ferris wheel or get their creep on at local club Karma’s. USA NJ is truly evocative of Seaside Heights at night: the excitement, the carnival food, the fluorescent lights of the roller coasters and arcades against the black waves of the beach.
United Scents of America is a new perfume house that offered to send me samples of their fragrances. They did not ask for their scents to be reviewed, and I have not been compensated for this review. Based on how accurately their New Jersey scent captured the Jersey Shore nightlife, I am looking forward to trying the rest of their line.
