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. ☹️♡

This fragrance smells so good and fresh. Sweet scent that can be worn anytime.
Affordable, smells amazing!! Love it
Emily from North Carolina
Love this perfume!!
It is very long lasting!
Katelyn from Baltimore, MD
This perfume lasts so long. I sprayed it at 7 am and it's 4:30 pm, my fiancé and friend both commented about it. I can't smell it though. When I first spray it, I smell the sweet notes of it. I feel like I wear it when I'm feeling "flirty" if that makes sense. Overall, I enjoy it and I'll continue wearing it.
I love how light and airy it is ❤️
Me from Illinois
Spray lightly after a shower
Hailey from Riverside
In my opinion this perfume smells more like a men's cologne... it's not an awful smell but honestly I got it cause I saw it all over tik tok. But it's a tad overhyped and the smell is mediocre. But to each there own.
Smells Amazing! Wear time is questionable
CA from MD
I got this smell and loved it! It really does smell unique. I like sweet and soft smells so if you like that then you'll love this. Only issue is that when I first got it, i would smell it all day. After a month, it seems to fade really quickly I barely smell it on me anymore.
Sure I will buy it again
Roro from Michigan
Sooooo good everyone has to have it
Cloud is a great perfume!
Gabrielle W from AL
Cloud is not what I was expecting. It is sweet, yes, but it's not a simple or cloying gourmand perfume. It's surprisingly complex and mature! It's very creamy and the coconut and whipped cream notes come through for me. It lasts a long time on my skin and projects pretty well. This is a great perfume to have and while I do think it leans more feminine, I could see a man pull this off too.
Let me say, the HYPE IS REAL
Ariana from Phoenix AZ
After seeing this perfume come up time and time again on TikTok for most compliments from a perfume I ended up getting it. Let me tell you I sprayed it on me and my boyfriend could NOT stop raving how good I smell. In one day he probably complimented it at least 5 times! Finally found my holy grail!
Vegan Gal from Oklahoma
It smells nice, but I feel as though I need to reapply throughout the day as it doesn't last well at all.
I am obsessed!!!

I use a little of cloud on my wrist and neck and it lasts all day!!!!!
New favorite perfume!
ashiri from Camden, New Jersey
this is my new favorite perfume to wear! it does have a bit of a masculine scent to it but the sweeter notes in the perfume balances it out. it's also long lasting - even after i shower, i still smell it on me. the only thing that can be difficult with this is the cap of the perfume. it's so hard to take it off!
My boyfriend definitely approves
Beebee from Austin, TX
This perfume has hints of coconut that blend well with my natural scent. The only con that I have for it is that it fades rather quickly. I've tried putting on Vaseline then spraying it with the perfume to make it stay longer but it still fades quickly.
A girl named Sarah from Portland, OR
The scent is absolutely awful, I don't know how this perfume has so many good reviews. It smells very cheap and synthetic. It gave me an instant headache and made me nauseous. I would not recommend.
Eve from New York
I saw this perfume from tik tok and it had such great reviews. I was a bit skeptical about the smell and worried it would smell like bubblegum but it doesn't. When you first spray it there is a nice hint of pear after it settles a masculine undertone takes over which smells lovely. I haven't smelled another perfume like this and I would recommend to try it if you're into light smells. Downside is it doesn't last too long.
Shay from Capitol Heights MD
Very lovely fragrance and packaged nicely
This scent is so warm, sweet, and spicy!! Love it!!
Brooklyn from Florida
I spray about 4 sprays (two on wrist, one on neck, and one on clothes) and it lasts forever!! I smelled it on a shirt a week later!!
Mimi101 from FL
I love this fragrance! So creamy and effervescent. It's not intrusive which is my favorite type of fragrances but it doesn't go unnoticed. It can smell synthetic because obvie it's a celeb fragrance but that's the only con and it's almost irrelevant. If I want to smell less synthetic and more classy, I just throw on my Chanel Gabrielle.
The scent that has you floating on a cloud
Gee from Ridge NY
This smells like the uber expensive Baccarat Rouge.. It's last long all day actually __I guess it depends on your pheremone.
I already placed my order for Baccarat Rouge for my Mother's day gift from my son's.
Definitely pick up Cloud.
Birthday gift for granddaughter
Syl from Friendswood, TX
Purchased this as a birthday gift for my granddaughter, she loved it! Very pleasant scent and I would even buy for myself.
I had high hopes
Beauty&Brains from Pennsylvania
I had high hopes for this fragrance. I watched several YouTube reviews and decided to take the leap. I believe that it is a beautiful fragrance. However, be aware that it depends on your body chemistry. In my opinion, this is a fragrance you need to try on before you buy. Because it could be really good on you or really bad. I think this probably smells good on most people. But the bergamot note on me was over powering!! It smelled like I was wearing a men's cologne. Literally had a male coworker ask me if had on cologne. Pretty embarrassing. So Check the notes and make sure it works for you and you'll be fine!
On my 3rd bottle! Love it
Jalissa from Grand Prairie, Tx
I spray only once for the whole day and stays on all day! I love it! It's my 3rd bottle
Sweet and inviting
Thatnursejess from San Diego, CA
So I've never purchased a perfume from Ariana Grande, however I smelled this in a holiday sample box I received from Christmas and really liked it. Honestly the closest scent that resembles this is Her by Burberry. My husband says is smells more like pineapple cake, but I love sweets so as long as he approves we're good. So if you enjoy sweet scents that aren't too overwhelming you will enjoy this scent. Even for the large size it is priced very reasonably. Keep in mind this is an eau de parfum, which has more oil than eau de toilette making it a but stronger (lasting longer), so if that isn't something you want maybe look for eau de toilettes only.
Puts men under a spell
LA from Greensboro, NC
This literally puts men under a spell. The smell isn't too strong or sweet. It's the perfect combination.
ARIANAS SUPERIOr scent
Ariel from MN
This is her best perfume, PERiod. I can't even explain it, it's like nothing you've ever smelled, it is not from this World. It is the smell of heaven. Ariana swooped up some of the air before joining us on earth. Its prob the cloud she wore in heaven to covered her body.
