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 perfume kinda smells like men's cologne which is the main thing I disliked, I thought it would be more feminine. Also gives me old lady perfume vibes. It has a vanilla, marshmallow, cotton candy-ish scent (best way I can describe it). It's okay overall, I just think it's not really my style. I was expecting different based on all the reviews I read.

I bought this perfume on a whim and honestly I was not impressed. It smelled light & fresh but I noticed that it did not LAST, not on your clothes or skin. I want to say after about an hour the scent was gone from my skin & 2/3 hours on the clothes. With this perfume you'll definitely have to apply multiple times a day. The longevity sucks & so does the projection.

at first i hated the smell but it grew on me. i feel like it could be a little stronger though.

Honest review; this is a def top 5 inexpensive perfumes to buy either male or female (it's just a scent get over it) it starts off with a blast of juicy pear and subtle hints of bergamot and it transforms into a lactonic whipped cream and coconut (not the bad type of coconut) and ending with almost like vanilla and woody notes which is probably the tonka bean. Longevity is pretty decent I get about 5 hours and 1/2 and the projection lasts for about 3 hours, compared to other Ariana perfumes this is lesser on the sweet and airier and overall good for all seasons, (don't overspray in spring or summer but perfect for the colder seasons) though it is a more basic smell it's a safe blind buy (IMO it doesn't smell like BR540 maybe in the opening note but it changes) only giving it a 4-star because I wished it lasts a bit longer but I'm fine with respraying.

So I bought the purse-sized mini of this a couple months back because I loved it so much on the paper sample. Initially I disliked it on me after spraying it and thought whoa, this does not smell anything like the sample on me. I used it daily anyway just to use it up. Well one day, I grabbed a shirt I had worn a couple days before to run outside for something and got a whiff of the scent. Holy cow it smelled so good I had to sniff it again and I was like, wait what? It was like a febreeze commercial. So that kept happening, I would smell it on my clothes after I changed out of them at the end of the day and it just smelled sooo good. To top it off, I was getting compliments even though I couldn't even detect the smell on me during the day.
So I'm thinking this is a good example olfactory fatigue where the person can't smell anything on them any more from prolonged exposure to a scent or scents which I deal with constantly. It must have lasting power if I'm getting compliments and smelling it on my clothes at the end of the day. So my advice is, buy the mini version and wear it daily to see if it's worth buying the whole one. It might grow on you like it did me!

Did not like this at all. I'm not sure if it was a bad batch or what. But I sprayed it and it smells like expired chemicals. Very disappointing.
Liv from California
I've been stopped just about every time I wear this! I love this scent, it's warm, floral yet once it dries down it smells more sexy. Just purchased my 3rd bottle.
Jay from Wisconsin
I never spent money on perfume until I smelt this! Seriously BEST scent I've ever smelt!
B from Boston/Los Angeles
Smells amazing. I bought it immediately after smelling one of the ad samples in the Ulta catalog. Would be the perfect perfume if the scent held longer :/
Ttt from Wisconsin
I feel like I'm alone here but I hate this scent.. smells like old perfume (like expired) not sweet on me at all just manly but not in a fresh way. Because I like so masculine scents (loved night by Victoria secret) but this is a hard pass

I fell in love with this fragrance in a sampler kit. I am normally drawn to deep cedar scents, so this was a little out of my comfort zone. However, the way the scent mixed with my skin chemistry was so nice. It layered well and I can still smell it after a few hours. It is one of those that you don't need to reapply very often, and it does get deeper as the day goes on. I normally spray it around 8 or 9, and just spritz once or twice more maybe around 6.
You can definitely tell when you've sprayed too much - it will them develop this sharper, uber-sweet smell - but that fades pretty quickly and starts to mellow itself out maybe within 10-15 minutes.

I didn't ever use perfume before but I love Ariana so I wanted to try this out and thank GOODNESS I did!! I'm pretty sensitive to smells but this scent is so amazing and not too aggressive.
exgrande from Philadelphia, PA
Honestly I get a compliment or two every time I wear it. It smells so good and always catches someone's attention.

Y'all I love most of aris perfumes but this smells like mens cologne. It might just not work on my skin, because I legit hate the smell. It's strong and not in a good way.
alyssa from United States
i honestly don't like it at all, it just smells weird to me? it like actually feels like it burns the inside of my nose and it smells like marshmallow mixed with some sort of soft vanilla and i really don't like it.
C from Fargo
Smells great and lasts all day!!!
Jessica G from Ohio
this scent is my absolute favorite. it's just so perfectly balanced: sweet, but not too sweet. it has depth, but it's not overwhelming. the only thing i don't like about this and the only thing keeping it from being 5 stars is the packaging. the cloud is cute, but it feels wasteful that i can't just buy a refill bottle when i run out.
Arnie from Los Angeles
This perfume is SOOOO good, every time I walk by someone at work I get compliments. I'm going to finish it so fast but that means I can get a brand new bottle after 💙 ☁️💙☁️

KNC from Pennsylvania
This scent is very sweet and it lasts. It's not the best sweet perfume in my opinion but whoever wears it will not be disappointed.
