An understatedly elegant and very unique fragrance. Salt is listed as one of the notes, no wonder it's really like no other on the market currently. The sweetness comes from the vanilla notes. It's extremely sexy, soft, warm, and so feminine. Nothing harsh. It' makes me feel like that gorgeous girl who seems comfortable in her own skin. Who has her own style. It never tries too hard. Everything about this fragrance feels innate. This ties with my Chanel Chance Eau Tendre as an all-time FAV. Simply beautiful. Like their clothes, accessories make it your own signature. This fragrance, upon application, morphs into its own entity. Lingers and identifies. It's like locking eyes with a beautiful stranger, if only briefly. Subtle at first glance, then you become completely intoxicated. Memorable and eternal. If attraction had a scent, GAP bottled it! LOVE!

Lovely little scent that has a bit of sweet floral hidden away to come out and sorta grab you as it dries down. Unfortunatelly, it only lasts about 2 hours (being generous here) and until then is lovely. Gave a low score since it's so close to the skin and lasts so little. It's inexpensive enough to reapply frequently but I just don't have the time and it's not that special to go to the effort.

DOES NOT LAST. This was a real disappointment. It smells really good. It has a spicy and clean scent and reminds me of CK-One somewhat. The staying power however is awful. I put this on, and I swear an hour later I could not smell it at all. I had to give it away, it was a real waste of money.

I really wanted a change from my flowery scents. Something clean and refreshing to cut through a hot, sticky summer's day . after debating for ages, I got it, but I only wore it once. something about it is quite 'spicy' kinda like when you smell chilli powder and it kinda stings your nose and the back of your throat. what a shame :( .

Lemon, salt, with a tiny tiny hint of flowers down in there somewhere. By no means a big fragrance, sits quite close to the skin- you’d have to drench yourself for others to really smell it. But you could, since it’s a very inoffensive fragrance. Or don't, if you want something subtle and fresh. A 10ml bottle only cost me $8.50, totally worth it. Would purchase again.

I am not one to shy away from bold, in-your-face scents, but occasionally it's nice to wear something subtle. Lately I have been on a "skin scent" kick and looking for those scents that are soft and pretty and wear close to the skin. And that is where "Close" from the GAP gets its name. It's a soft, fresh and clean scent without being harsh. Soft florals with just a whisper of musk. This would make a lovely everyday scent. Smells like clean towels drying on a line in the sunshine, but there's just a hint of something that gives it a sexy feeling. Nicely done. Lovely bottle and it comes in a cute plastic case.

This is one of the most interesting scents I've come across, and I really think it's one of the hidden gems of 2009. I'd gone into Gap intending to buy underwear and left with this instead. It's so unusual-it's described as a floral musk, but I don't feel that accurately describes this perfume. Top notes are salt water, citrus, and fresh almond, which, to me anyway, is a lovely and unusual combination. Through these, medium notes of florals-heliotrope, freesia, and jasmine peek through, and soften the harshness of the salt. The base notes of sandalwood, musk, vanilla, and amber blend with the florals and intensify them just enough. The overall effect is very beachy-think of the Atlantic ocean in the summer, when the flowers hit the sand of the beach, and the fragrance hits the sea air. It's very light, modern, fresh, and feminine.
It's not an overpowering perfume; it's definitely a scent that is to be smelled at close range (hence the name "Close"). Bottom line, it's a very romantic scent, really meant to be smelled by your SO when he/she gets close to you and smells your neck, your wrists, behind your ears, your hair, and left as a reminder on a pillow; even the bottle mirrors the scent: a simple tear-drop shaped bottle with a small silver cap and gorgeous pink-white opalescent sheen. This has taken a place of pride on my vanity.

I'm not a big fragrance follower, but I caught this one at a GAP store recently and was surprised by how much I liked it! All the scents involved really compliment each other - white flowers, a little salty beach air, light and airy.
It's not an overpowering fragrance and it really is meant to be smelled up close. Nice and fresh and it really compliments my natural body chemistry - the price is pretty decent, too, and I can see this working really well as an all-day fragrance.

Warm, simple, soft, and innocent. Imagine sleeping in a fluffy bed on a cold winter day.

This is a warm skinscent with a slight powdery feel. I pick up on some sandalwood, vanilla, and a white amber, with some florals on top that I am unable to differentiate.
The main thing I will point out, is that to me it smells almost identical to Victoria's Secret Heavenly, which is already an extremely popular fragrance at a similar price. Lasting power is pretty good- 5-6 hours on me when most fragrances die within 2. Love the bottle.
