Gwen Stefani’s Love is what I call a “fragrance mullet”: sparkling or fruity on the top; creamy in the back.  It’s the winning structure of so many women’s perfumes today.  Fresh citrus pops on top with light notes of pepper for a small but unexpected kick.  In the middle evolves a dewy, petaly floralcy that is clean and feminine, again reminding me of Chloé and that silky, out-of-the-shower feeling.  A particular combination of watery red fruit and light rose creates an impression of lychee and peony.  The round, solid base notes are smooth like vanilla cream, a touch buttery, and morph to a dry-down that, combined with the petaly heart notes, feels like milky satin. ♦♦♦ Three stars.
