Gwen Stefani Harajuku Lovers Fragrances: September 2008

Published in: Fragrance, News


I ain’t no holla back girl, but I’ll follow the legions of Gwen Stefani fans to the Macy’s perfume counter this September to check out Harajuku Lovers, Gwen’s latest line of fragrances. I get fired up for everything Gwen does, so I’m looking forward to this release.


Aren’t the bottle tops SO CUTE? They represent Gwen and her back up dancers.

Five fragrances make up up the set.

Harajuku Lovers

  • Love — a floral with notes of bergamot, pomelo (citrus, a little like grapefruit), peach, rose, jasmine, orchid and musk
  • Lil’ Angel — a fruity floral with with notes of different berries (raspberry, cranberry, blackberry), pineapple, rose and amber
  • Music — a floral with notes of clementine, pear, jasmine, sweet pea, honeysuckle, vanilla and musk
  • Baby — a powder musk with freesia, bergamot, rose, jasmine, musk, heliotrope, vanilla and violet
  • G — a food lover’s fragrance with mandarin, coconut, apple, freesia and sandalwood

With all the fruit up in the mix, I wished that at least one of the scents would have bananas (B-A-N-A-N-A-S) just so I could sing along! But, alas, ’twas not meant to be.

Each fragrance will come in two different sizes — $45 for a 30-ml bottle and $25 for a 10-ml. I bet Baby and Music will hit all my fragrance buttons. They’d look so cute together on my dresser. Maybe they’ll come alive at night when I’m sleeping… OooOOoooo!

Look for Gwen’s Harajuku Lovers perfumes at Macy’s fragrance counters this September.

Aren’t you glad it’s Friday? This was a long week, and that makes today extra sweet.

Did you catch America’s Best Dance Crew last night? The episode featured routines around Janet Jackson songs. Love her! There were lots of Janet songs I hadn’t heard in ages. I know I can’t be the only person who wishes they’d ban Mario Lopez (the host) from saying the words “master mix” and “nasty” ever again.

One of the dance crews last night did a routine to Black Cat — the early-90s Janet song with the heavy metal guitar. It’s one of her more unusual cuts, and you either love it or hate it.


The neighbor’s cat stopped by for breakfast this morning, and I played it for him. He didn’t seem impressed.

Tonight I’m dragging El Hub to see The Dark Knight. All I gotta say is C. Bale better work that bat suit for mama, oh la la!

    I kinda want all of them, just ’cause the bottles are so damn cute. But I think G sounds best for me. I can’t wait to sniff it! So many perfumes to try, so little time, lol 🙂

    Awww, such a cute kitty! Give him a belly rub for me!!!!

    Oooh, I can’t wait to hear what you think of Dark Knight – I’ll probably try to catch it one day next week.

  2. Asta says:

    I didn’t love LAMB, so I hope these tickle my fancy, even if it’s just so I can have the toppers!

    You have to drag a man to see an action movie? Dark Knight was amazing. Hope you and Hub have fun…there’s probably no way you won’t enjoy yourselves.

  3. Marisol says:

    Have fun at the movies and say hi to my man. Tell him that I will be waiting up for him. LOL

    I am going to check out Music and Baby when they come out. They sound like something that I would like.

    I was sort of bummed at the crew that got eliminated last night but I guess that is the point of the show.

    Marisols last blog post..Chanel has an iPhone app?

  4. Lehea says:

    I luuurve HJL! I saw these in my August issue of Allure. Music is my favorite of the dancers, so hopefully I’ll like the fragrance.

  5. Karen B says:

    I want those bottles! So so cute!
    I’m sure mr Bale’ll try hard for you m’dear. I heard both his and Heath’s performances are ace. I want to see it too, I just hope I won’t tear up (or start sobbing) whenever Heath’s on the screen…

  7. gio says:

    I want them all, they are so cute!

    gios last blog post..New product: Shu Uemura Brightening Cleansing Oil

  8. Miss QQ says:

    From the description, I think I’ll like Music. As for the dolls on top, I like Lil’ Angel and Baby. I will check them out. Hope you enjoyed the movie!

  9. Karen says:

    YIKES! I just went through a nightmare trying to upgrade the blog WordPress version to 2.6… yeah… long story short, it didn’t work, so I had to restore from backup.

    WHEW! Basically, I aged 10 years in the last three hours. I need my anti-aging cream ASAP.

  10. Joanne says:

    I don’t care what they smell like, I want them all! When I first saw “L” at Nordstrom, I didn’t really mind the smell, but it was a Gwen Stefani product and I loved the bottle, so I bought it. I hardly use it. It’s quite strong. But I love Gwen Stefani stuff!

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Tiffany,

    Me too. I think the entire set looks great.

    Awww, he’s pretty charming when he decides I’m worthy of his company. I’ll give him a good belly rub for ya the next time I see him!

    The Dark Knight was really good, but it was quite depressing. Heath does a phenomenal job; it’s worth all the hype the critics have given his performance.

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Asta,

    Me too! I really hope the scents smell good so I can have an excuse to get ’em all. 🙂

    I ended up really enjoyed the film. Although at the end, I felt pretty stressed out!

  13. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    Ha! He wanted me to let you know that he’ll be kickin’ it with me and the neighbor’s tabby so don’t wait up!

    I didn’t want that crew to go either (ASIID?). I liked their choreography and that they had girls on their crew. I hope the other crews with a mix of guys and girls in it makes it to the end, so that the end isn’t so male dominated as it was last season. One of these days I would love to see an entire crew of women make it to the end!

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Lehea,

    I think Music is cute, too. Love is my fave because I dig her hair. 🙂

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    Both performances were great. Heath’s performance was quite frightening. He was terrifying in many scenes!

  16. Karen says:

    Hi MiMi,

    Maybe the dolls will start dancing in a choreographed routine when the clock strikes 12! 🙂 My mom collects dolls, and when we were young my dad would totally scare us by telling up that they’d come alive at night while we slept. So traumatizing!

    I like both those crews, too. SoReal Crew always has beautiful choreography. I also feel for the girl in there who talks about how she doesn’t really get support from her parents in her artistic endeavors, because I can relate to her story. Fannypack is really great too — just very interesting and innovative choreography and a very strong point of view. It sort of cracks me up that they are so obsessed with the 80s and that they think the era was so phenomenal. I mean, I lived through the decade;
    it was a’ight but wasn’t really *that* cool.

    Anyhoo, hope you are having a good weekend!

  17. Karen says:

    Hi Gio,

    Me too. 🙂 I kinda wish they’d dance or something…

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Miss QQ,

    I’ll probably end up liking Music the most, too. The movie was great! Do you think you might see it?

  19. Karen says:

    Hi Joanne,

    Have you seen her fall clothing line? I love this plaid jacket.

  20. Joanne says:

    I haven’t seen her fall clothing line, but I’m sure they’re hot looking clothes. Unfortunately, her clothes are too expensive for my college student wallet =(. I don’t live near a Nordstrom, but this one older lady had a LAMB bag @ Anchor Blue. The bag was was white with teal trimmings with a gold L in the center I believe. I had to tell her that I Loved her bag. I’ve never seen a LAMB bag in real life.

  21. Karen B says:

    I heard he was quite terrifying. I’m just gonna blub, I just know it. Everyone will be scared and I’ll be sobbing. *sigh* ‘t is the life of moi… lol

  22. Karen says:

    Hi Joanne,

    I used to be a clothes horse but I don’t really need to dress up on a daily basis, so I just like looking at Gwen’s online. I usually put it in a cart and then I don’t buy it, LOLOL.

  23. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B,

    You might be too scared to sob. Seriously, he was really, really creepy. The award buzz that he’s getting for the performance is much deserved.

  24. Karen B says:

    He was? Ooh that’s good. I really hope he gets loads of nominations. Poor dear put blood tears and sweat into that performance.
