Haus of Gloi First Blush
Tahitian vanilla bean, white tea, lavender and peach.
This perfume was my first foray into Haus of Gloi (aka HoG). First Blush caught my eye because the notes reminded me of one of my favorite scents, Arcana Fille de Joie. This is one of HoG’s Valentine’s scents, so it is seasonal in their catalog. When available, it comes in perfume oil samples and full sizes, sugar exfoliant, whipped soap, Pumpkin Butter and scrub.
In the bottle: The white tea is very prominent, as is the peach. It’s very vibrant and punchy.
On the skin: I really like this. On the skin, the tea evens out and the vanilla and peach get stronger. I only get a tiny bit of lavender, so if you aren’t a fan of that, you might like this. This is quite different from Fille de Joie, however: Fille is heavy on the herbal lavender, with creamy vanilla and peach. It’s comforting and soft. First Blush is mostly white tea and juicy peach, and its much brighter and more youthful. It’s like the bubbly kid sister of Fille de Joie. It’s honestly a perfect scent for the spring and summer.
TL;DR: A bright, playful blend of white tea and peach with a hint of vanilla. Ideal for warm weather. 4/5
