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. ☹️♡
I use this perfume when I can't make up my mind for what to wear. It doesn't last very long on my skin, so I have to spray a lot for it to have the projection and sillage that I want. This is a safe blind purchase, as it is very much a crowd pleasing scent. Many people like this perfume and I can see why, but it just simply does not last very long for me. I have not received any compliments while wearing this perfume. If you're looking for a better gourmand that lasts longer and has a better sillage than this, I recommend Lancomé- La Vie Est Belle. Or if you have the money to spend 300 dollars on a bottle of baccarat rouge 540, then go for that instead. This scent very much smells like a teenage girl in highschool- not mature or sophisticated. It's a simple and linear scent- it does not change or take you through a journey while wearing it, which is something that I normally look for in a perfume. Would I recommend this scent to a friend? Yes probably. Many people enjoy it, and that is absolutely fine- I just don't find it as appealing as other options that I have in my collection. Would I purchase this again? No I don't think that I personally would.
Recently, I noticed that most of my peers have started wearing fragrances! So, because this is easily the most popular affordable perfume ever, decided to buy this as my first ever perfume… and I'd definitely say that I made the right choice!
This perfume is incredible. It's sweet, it's airy, it's fresh, and it's noticeable, which makes it perfect for fall, winter and spring!
At first, I was hesitant about buying it since it's marketed towards women, but it's actually a VERY unisex scent. It's perfect for just about any occasion, and it's youthful and mature at the same time, which makes it a perfect signature scent for me. I don't know why people are saying this isn't long-lasting; I spray 5 times (once behind each ear, once on each shoulder, and once on the back of my neck), and this scent EASILY lasts on my skin for 8 hours, and on my clothes for quite a few days! And even when you spray too much, it's not too overpowering or unpleasant.
I find that the price for this perfume is great, given its quality! My only complaint is that the projection isn't super far-reaching; but that's hardly an issue for me, since I've heard the 2.0 version fixes that!
I bought the 1.7 oz bottle, and once I run out, I'll definitely be buying the 2.0/Intense bottle, since I think a more creamy version of this that projects a bit better will be perfect for me!
In short: please give this perfume a try! It's unisex, VERY well-priced, long-lasting (especially if you spray on your clothes), and it's perfect for the seasons we're currently headed into. Wearing this perfume truly makes me feel like I'm on top of a soft and fluffy cloud.
Perfume it reminds me of baccarat Rouge
I smelled this on someone else and had to ask them what it was it was so good. It is a really good balance of warm sweeter notes and crisp masculine notes.
