[Review] Haus of Gloi - Cosy Sweater


Collection: General Catalogue
Status: Available
Purchased: 1ml sample vial direct from HoG

Notes: Pale skin musk, faded perfume, Egyptian amber, softly burning nag champa incense and a fine aged vanilla

In the vial: Soft nag champa with a dollop of musk and a touch of vanilla. The second I sniffed this in the vial, I immediately wanted to slather myself in it!

On my skin: It immediately becomes a lot muskier. The incense wafts around me, but it's so gentle and unobtrusive. I've read reviews of Cosy Sweater that says its a head shop scent, but I don't get that from it. It's snuggly and comforting and just... perfect. I also get occasional faint wafts of a floral note, but I'm not sure what it is. Plus, and this might sound bizarre, I can sense heat radiating from my skin when I sniff my wrists. It's extraordinary.

Throw: Average. My only grumble with this scent is that sometimes I wish it didn't wear so close. That said, I've been kind of stingy with my applications because I don't want my vial to run out until I can get my hands on a full size bottle.
Longevity: This lasts around six hours on my skin.

Summary: Soft, musky incense with a dash of vanilla. Never has a scent been so aptly named. I genuinely feel as though I'm wrapped up my favourite cosy sweater whenever I wear this.

Verdict: I've been wearing this scent most nights when I go to bed recently. After a pretty blah week, it's genuinely calmed me down and helped me drift off to sleep. I actually received another HoG haul today from their Fall 2015 re-stock, but I don't think I can ration my Cosy Sweater vial for much longer so I shall be placing an order for a full size bottle in the next few days :)
