Most Helpful Positive Review Honest Review
I like to look up different fragrances & read about them, so when I go to the store I can see if they smell how I imagined. Many people were raving about this fragrance, even saying it was a dupe for MFK's Baccarat Rouge 540, which is a $300 bottle of perfume. I thought that was an impressive reputation, so I went to Ulta to try it out.
My final thoughts: I like it! Keep in mind when you read reviews that everyone's skin chemistry is different, so this fragrance could be fantastic on some & a disaster on others. My advice, do what I did & try it for yourself(ON YOUR SKIN) at the store. At first when I tried it on, I did NOT like it. It was strange, & seemed as though it wasn't going to sit well on me. I let it dry down, and THEN I understood the craze. This scent is so different and exciting. It's sweet, but also kind of fresh/woodsy? I'd also say this fragrance is almost unisex. There's a masculine quality to it, which I think is due to the cashmere base note. It's a more sophisticated fragrance than others in her collection so I see it on someone 18+. It is a strong scent, so I can see how someone who doesn't like the smell can find it nauseating. Even hours after I've put it on, I can still smell it intensely, & I only did one spray. Overall, I like it much better now hours later than when I initially sprayed it. It dries down to that rich, sweet scent you're expecting. The coconut(which I normally hate) is surprisingly well done, not overpowering/obnoxious at all. Whipped cream, vanilla, and cashmere are the dominant notes on me. Overall, I give this fragrance a 7 out of 10. I really like it, but I don't love it. It's definitely unique but also not for everybody. If I had to describe it, I'd say it's a "Sugary woodsy" smell. Has an understated seductiveness to it. Give it a shot! It's interesting at the very least.
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed to say the least.
I've been a fan of Ariana's since 2010 and I have genuinely loved every single one of her fragrances released so far. (Ari and SLC are my favorites). When she told us that Cloud was going to have hints of vanilla and coconut, and that it's definitely her favorite fragrance so far, I was SO excited. I couldn't wait to have a new daily perfume. I came straight to Ulta to pick it up and the bottle's design looks a little like something she'd release in 2013, but I knew I'd just have to get past that. Then I sprayed it - It had an OVERWHELMINGLY musky, manly scent. It smells IDENTICAL to when you walk into a store like Hollister or Abercrombie & Fitch and you get a punch of just... a woody/manly smell that's so overpowering you can't even continue shopping. Yet, I still, impulsively purchased the fragrance just because I wanted to love it so much. I'm so sad to say that Cloud is actually my least favorite fragrance of Ariana's when I expected so much more and it to be my most favorite. It doesn't smell anything like coconut, or even vanilla. I returned Cloud shortly after purchasing it, knowing I just really disliked the scent. ☹️♡

Ana from San Diego
I'm usually never one to go towards sweeter smells, but this one is great because it's not too sweet. I love the hints of vanilla in the perfume. I get compliments every single time I wear it!
My signature scent!
Sunshine Pat from New Jersey
I bought a full size bottle of Ariana Grande Cloud after smelling it on a sample paper strip in a magazine. I'm bad at describing scents but it's just really lovely. It's a soft scent on me but it lasts several hours. I've had more people ask me "what fragrance are you wearing?" when I'm wearing this. I love it so much I bought the small travel size spray and am already on my second full size bottle.
I love a lot of Ariana Grande perfumes but this one is it!!

BACCARAT ROUGE 540 DOUPE
Jessica m from Miami,FL
If you have ever smelled the expensive baccarat rouge 540 perfume, you will be convinced this is the perfect dupe for it. Initially I have such a hard time buying perfumes because of my skin chemistry and I am just sensitive to smells in general. I like sweet, feminine but not too sweet where it's repulsive. I bought this perfume blindly guiding myself by the reviews and it is shockingly good if I do say so myself.
Ever since I started wearing this perfume I have personally not stopped getting compliments from my clients. I work as a therapist for kids and have received comments almost daily from my kiddos and their family members as well as my boyfriend and his family.
The smell lasts a pretty long time on my skin and I don't apply a crazy amount. I like to do 3 sprays on my neck and 3 sprays on my wrists. Although after a few hours I don't really smell the perfume anymore, I know it is still lingering since I have received compliments after a few hours.
PLEASE BUY THIS. I hope it fits well with your skin. If you have smelled the expensive baccarat perfume you will see this is an excellent dupe for the $300+ perfume

I saw a lot of stuff on the perfume over the last couple days and HAD to try it. Of course you can't sample it right now so I bought the 1oz. and I am so happy I did!!! I'm definitely buying more. This stuff smells so perfect. It's young yet very sophisticated, not too sweet, kind of "sexy". It lasts on pulse points all day so far. I'm a diesel mechanic and I can still smell it with only a spritz on my wrist and neck. I've had multiple people ask what it was and compliment it. I heard reviews saying it's "really sweet". It's not. Or at least not what I consider really sweet. I was thinking along the lines of that "cotton candy" spray we used as teenagers that gave you a headache when you used more than 3 sprays. This smell is beautiful and I would say a great year round scent! 100% and I wish I could give 10 stars. Highly recommend.
Love this but doesn't last
Bre from Bethlehem, PA
I love this perfume. It smells sweet, but not childish. It just doesn't last, no matter how much you use. I wish I could get lotion to layer the scent better... but I have body sprays that last longer. So disappointed because I really like the scent.
Smells SO GOOD!
Kim from Camarillo, CA
It smells amazing, wish the fragrance would stay on longer
none of from ya business
smells a bit like cologne the first 5 minutes. after that is smell like fruits a whipped cream, so I recommend.
Sunny64 from New York
This is a very well made fragrance and great price, last along time. This is more sophisticated but very modern, nothing else like it and very unique. Fresh powdery coconut sweet scent. I highly recommend! I only dropped 1/2 start because my cap got stuck and sprayed was loose, but I think that was just a dud and I don't see any issues with fragrance.

Huele tan rico!

I bought this and I love it. It's been 3 hours and I like how it smells
ERS from Midwest
This stuff smells AMAZING. I am a person who hates lavender, so I was hesitant about getting this, but I'm so glad I did. The lavender note blends well with everything else that I don't even notice it. Only taking away a star because of lasting power, which I have yet to confirm (I just bought it). If you like sweet perfume that's not TOO sweet, you'll like this one.
Best Perfume Ever
User2927591947294967151939572648592 from Columbia, SC
This is the best perfume I've ever smelled in my life! I recently just bought R.E.M. a few days ago, but that perfume gave me such a headache. I exchanged it for Cloud, and this was by far the best thing I've ever purchased. It takes me right into the clouds with its dreamy scent and makes me feel so cute with how sweet and refreshing it is. If you're thinking about buying Cloud, then do it! You won't be disappointed.
The only problem I have with this perfume is that my sprayer is a bit loose and I can't seem to tighten it, but I'm sure that's just my bottle. ☁️☁️
