What does New Jersey smell like?

It depends who you ask, really. Does New Jersey smells like its beaches, woods, swamps, farms, or cities? Hairspray? A spray tan? Yes, we have them all! Of the many smells of Jersey, the nicest one is from the amazing Jersey-based perfume line, United Scents of America. They have interpreted New Jersey’s scent in a fun new way. With notes of buttered popcorn, cotton candy, caramel, and vanilla, this perfume smells like the better parts of the Jersey Shore boardwalk.

The scent is light enough that you’ll never feel or smell as though you’re dipped in sugar. Which is great- unless, of course, you like that kind of thing. (No judgement.)

Jersey-centered United Scents of America clearly spent a lot of time making NJ proud. The other fragrances in the line are New York, Florida, Texas, and California. These round out the first 5 launches for United Scents, and the rest of the states will be available in time. Of course, I’m more than a little biased, but New Jersey smells the best! Florida is my close second: it manages to simultaneously smell of fresh oranges and beautiful beaches. (How do you even do that?!) A fun bonus is that New Jersey is the only flaming orange bottle in the whole set, leaving all the other states to … pale… in comparison!

Make sure to check them out and rep your home state! You can purchase the full bottle of your favorite state’s scent or get a sampler pack with these five. Let us know what you think!

  1. I loved USOA’s New Jersey perfume because it portrays New Jersey in such a classy light. It doesn’t smell like the TV show or Dupont. What’s even better than that they captured the scent of the boardwalk accurately is that they captured it in such a dignified way.

  2. Love the perfume concept. What a really great idea. I think I’ll get all of them!

  3. […] I know, I know: supporting the Snooki empire just feels wrong. But despite any urge to condemn this fragrance, it actually smells amazing. It’s so light and clean that I spray it all over me when I get out of the shower and it doesn’t feel stuffy. You can even go overboard spritzing it on you like a maniac (the way Snooki herself demonstrates when she sells the stuff on HSN) and you won’t reek of the Jersey shore. […]
