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.
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 is stunning! It's sweet but not sickly sweet. I own cloud, rem, thank u next, and sweet like candy and cloud is by far the best one. Unlike thank u next and sweet like candy, cloud is not overwhelmingly sweet. I'm not good with descriptions so all I can really say is that cloud is a good kind of sweet. It's not going to be cloying like all the pink sugars or gold coutures out there. It's almost, dare I say, a little masculine? Idk what it is but it tones down the sweetness into something manageable. Definitely try it in store first before you buy but I don't think you can go wrong with this one. I have heard that it doesn't last long on others so if you want something with staying power you might want to consider the intense version. I personally don't have an issue with the staying power.

smells jus like baccarat rouge but smells less masculine and woody. It's more musky and woody but definitely feminine. The bad reviewers are probably from young girls because cloud isn't super sweet snd girly
anna from baltimore
It smells just like Baccarat Rouge 540 except less woody/tobacco and masculine smelling. It does smell woody and musky but in a feminine way, and it smells exactly like BR540 once it settles. I have burberry her and i tried so hard to like it but it was TOO sweet and fake smelling :( it also did not smell like baccarat rouge- maybe baccarat rouges sweeter sibling- but not that similar.

I love sweet perfume. Florals give me a headache. This one is perfect for me. I'm constantly asked what I'm wearing and told I smell good enough to eat. Only complaint is the last two bottles don't have the staying power as my first two did. But hey I love the way it smells so I buy the rollerball and the body spray for on the go.
mae from pgh
sweet but mature, it's so different from any other perfume i have, yet everyone i know loves cloud. i get endless compliments on this perfume everytime i wear it. it smells to me like a mix of strong cotton candy, department store fragrance, and vanilla-y plastic babydoll head (??) all in a good way ofc, i'm working on my 3rd bottle bc it's just that good < 3
Whitney from Charlotte,NC
I love this perfume is my favorite & is now my signature scent ! I always get compliments on it & it's lasts all day for me!
ed from Florida
YES! GET IT!
Jess from California
I love this however whenever I wear it people think I wear cologne I definitely think maybe it can be unisex
Maelee from Washington state
I love this perfume! I bought the smallest bottle just to try it out and see if I actually like it, and I like it enough to want to buy a bigger bottle lol. It does have a kind of "masculine", cologne type of scent to it, but it also has a sweet scent to it. Also, a lot of perfumes give me headaches and this one doesn't!
Danielle from Washington
I LOVE THIS PERFUME. I was scared it was going to smell too sweet but it is perfect! I get so many compliments every time I wear it. Definitely recommend!
Chary from New York
this is the worst perfume that I ever tried from Arianna, hate it. I love Aris perfumes but this one was a NO for me
Kassy from Houston, TX
Seriously regret spending money on this fragrance. First off it has an overpowering alcohol smell but after it dries it smells lovely. BUT THEN it only lasts 20 minutes. That is Mist quality not eau de parfum. Save your cash for a finer and higher quality fragrance
slaughter from Renton
My favorite scent atm! And it lasts all day. 10/10 I totally recommend.
Nina from Waco
The rumors are true, it is a great dupe for Baccarat Rouge 540. I actually prefer Cloud. Not only is it much more affordable, but it doesn't have whatever that weird cigarette smell that seeps out of the 540 is. It's also lasted going on 9 hours today.
Ana from Texas
Smells nice but the scent doesn't last long at all :(
Scout from Idaho
I bought this perfume online without smelling it first and when I first opened it/ sprayed it.. I absolutelyyyy hated it and was going to return it. But after wearing it on my skin for a few minutes, I absolutely loved it. It's a very unique scent and is a more musky/ less sweet version of thank u next in my opinion. I'd maybe recommend smelling it in store first/ seeing how it reacts once on your skin since it is so unique. I will be repurchasing for sure!
Karah from USA
The scent is amazing, it's sweet without being over powering. My only complaint is that it doesn't last very long.
Lucille from USA
Beautiful scent and unlike anything else I have.
Annie from Ohio
I don't really understand the hype of this one. I bought it after reading the good reviews, but I can't stand the smell. All I smell is shower/bathroom cleaner. It's so strange. Will definitely be returning this.
stacy from california
stinks when mixed with sweating, smells more like cologne
jess from l
i love this perfume and so does my boyfriend. plus when you think you don't smell like the perfume anymore trust me it's still there and just cause you can't smell it doesn't mean others don't.
Tae from FL
I absolutely love this perfume & im 29. It smells sooo delicious soft floral fruity smell at first then dries down to a yummy sweet scent. Not overly sweet.. not sure if anyone remembers Pink Sugar?? well its not on that level of sweetness. Imagine a warm vanilla smell with a touch of musk that makes the scent more elegant rather than childish sweet. The scent lasts all day on my skin & i've gotten many compliments. My new daily signature scent im in love!
Megatronicks from Colorado springs
I really love Ariana Grande's scents but they don't last very long. they're not very strong at all. But I heard if you put some vitamin E oil on and then you spray yourself that it's supposed to last longer. I think it's a good mix between candy and musk it's more candy like less floral but I still think it smells refreshing.
Cheyenne P from Utah
I absolutely love this packaging and was so excited to try out this scent! But when I smelled it it smelled so cheap, like something you would get from the grocery store and had a chemically after smell. I'm also a woman in my late 20s and this could be a smell more for teenagers.
