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. ☹️♡

Indulgent and delicious

I never leave reviews on anything, but man. Man. Warm, deep, mouth watering, and LONG, LONG lasting. I always wear white florals and unisex scents (Bvlgari Au The Blanc has been my go-to for years) but I'm never coming back from this. I want to live inside this bottle.
P.S. the little white cloud is detachable which makes it nice for travel.
Smells like cologne
Spiritmarie from USA
I was super disappointed.. It smells like men's cologne...
Light clean sweet smell ✨
Peachy from La
This smell is just so sweet, mild, and fresh. I'm surprised at how long it last. I sprayed DOT my favorite fragrance by Marc Jacobs on one wrist and then this frag on the other wrist and to my surprise this fragrance lasted longer which I wouldn't expect because it's so mild and light. Perfect for an everyday type of fragrance. I still love DOT but I'm just impressed by this Ariana grande perfume that's all. I got a sampler of hers and slowly they all have been growing on me. But this fragrance is one I had to upgrade to full size because it last long, it smells wonderful and it fades into a sweet coconut smell after a while. I'm really impressed and have decided to make this my everyday casual scent. It definitely has that vibe. I just feel so fresh clean and sweet when I wear this. I wish there was a cream or lotion to go along with it but I pair it with a vanilla or coconut lotion and it just makes it last so much longer and smell so much better.
product smells different
tima from indiana
i bought this perfume around this time last year and it was amazing, it smelled so good and i got constant compliments, however this time around it doesn't smell good. it has a huge alcohol scent and not worth the money.

hannah from washington
i went to ulta the other day to get some more makeup and like most trips to ulta found myself walking through the perfume aisle. i'm a big fan of ariana and have and enjoy her fragrance moonlight. i had heard people loved cloud and raved about it all the time so i thought i might as well give it a try. when i sprayed it on my skin i immediately smelled pear and was slightly underwhelmed, but when i got into my car after about 20 minutes and smelled it again it smelled amazing. after a while i smelled some sweetness and some lavender, and i started to understand the hype lol. when i woke up today i almost put some perfume on but i realized that the cloud perfume was still there and smelled even better! so basically, it smells amazing, isn't overwhelming and lasts a long time. on my next trip to ulta i fully plan on buying the perfume💖
Love this smell!
Ari from Jacksonville
This smells so good! I'm very sensitive to smells & have had those headaches I see people referring to in these reviews but this one has never given me a "headache", I'm so happy I have it I love it.
You stink purty!
KimberlyO from Fargo, ND
My husband said to me that I smelled good... then he said in his country hick voice "You stink purty." This is the first celebrity-backed scent I've ever worn and I love it! It's a very subtle scent that seems to disappear for the wearer but that's just a trick of the nose as other people can still smell it.
I'm 52 and I think it is just right for me.
OH my goodness
Jessicayes from GA
Listen. I bought this because it was a 5x point special and I figured why not. This is a PERFECT dupe for that $500 red perfume, you know which one, I can't pronounce it. It has the sexistbut most subtle vanilla/marshmallow/woodsy notes that last all day and work for night time too. Just ordered more. Buy it girl
Smells so cheap!!
Mchll0504 from KC MO
The sample in my Ulta catalog smelled amazing- the other perfumes must have mixed with it bc when I received it... let me tell you it smells like what my 13 yr old self would wear. It smells cheap and that's
all I can say. Do not recommend.
Emily from CT
I keep trying new perfumes but always come back to this one. I don't like floral scents—the lavender is not overpowering at all. This is a perfect everyday fragrance for me!
Bath and Body works type vibes
Mia from Chicago
It wasn't bad, but it smelled way too much like middle school. It's nicer once it settles a bit and the cashmere base notes come out but honestly it's not worth the money for something that just smells like warm vanilla sugar body spray. If you're younger than like 16 it's a good sweet, first perfume but it was way too young and sweet smelling for my taste
