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. ☹️♡

Seriously the more I wear this the more I like it. I don't know what it is about this perfume but it just smells so good. Reminds me of Burberry her, except Burberry goes sour on me this doesn't, turns more sweet.
T from Nyc
Sweet and light.

I think this smells good (it's still not for me though) and it had a lot of staying power but it smells like grape cotton candy to me. This is not a dupe for the 540 EDP- I have it and the extrait. This smells nothing like it, not even one note. Literally nothing at all, I have no idea why this is getting compared to Baccarat EDP 540.
scline from Tennessee
I love this so much. My daughter smelled and asked to use it. The scent stays without having to refresh it. My daughter sprayed it on her coat so that she could continue to smell it, so I ordered her a bottle as well.
Vanessa from Buena Park
Ive gotten so many complements about this perfume. Love how it looks the scent is something I cant explain but I never get tired of it. Its a strong scent but a hint of sweetness. Strongly recommend.
Jenn from Mississippi
Yes this smells good. Save your money and get In The Stars at Bath and Body Works. It smells almost identical except the BBW one actually smells BETTER and will last much longer on skin and clothes. This was a huge disappointment based on all the rave reviews I've seen.
Jen from Los Angeles
When I smelled this at this store I was in love and so was my husband. It smells really great for about 30 minutes but doesn't last at all. It's a big bummer since it does smell great! It has a nice sweet but soft scent.

Blind bought Baccarat Rouge 540 and thought it was pretty meh, but it's a feather in my cap and I wear it sometimes. It's pretty original. Well, I was at Ulta and tried Cloud and it IS a dupe! I got it on my clothes and couldn't tell it apart.
Lulu from Vancouver
I love baccarat rouge 540 everyone said this was a good comparison When the lady first read it for me at the cosmetic counter I instantly said yup but when I got home at melt more inexpensive and synthetic I believe as it dries it smells better
Via from Alamo
I absolutely love it, it's my first real perfume, the smell lasts all day even until the next day, it smells sweet, I feel like this is more for young adults unless you like sweet smells and you're a older women then go for it ! I recommend

chloe from america

Nessa from Allen Tx
I had actually went to the store to buy the Burberry perfume but I remembered everyone talking about this perfume and when I smelt it I was like YEP this is me! This is the one! And it makes me love it more because it's Ariana's line 💗😭

Bought this perfume after hearing the overwhelming number of people on TikTok claiming it is a dupe for baccarat rouge 540. I haven't smelled BR 540 but I DO NOT like this perfume. It is very musky and has a masculine hint to it. I would consider it a dupe for Burberry Her which I also do not like. These just aren't my type of scents. If they're yours then you'll love it. I will say it lasts. I sprayed it on my wrist about 5 hours ago, and have washed my wrists with soap twice trying to get the perfume off and it is still holding strong.

First and foremost this product is for anyone that wants to smell young. It's a scent that is indescribable. It makes you feel good and makes everyone around you enjoy the scent. Just a good perfume. I recommend this to the ladies and gays!!
stephanie from florida
So the smell doesn't last long on me , but my daughter sprays herself before school and she still has the the great scent after . So i think it all friends on your skin type , some scents sit longer and sit different on others . Needless to say it smells amazing and i love that the scent isn't strong but sweet .
nicolekatxo from Michigan
Sweet and sexy. It's like that cheap pink cotton candy body spray, all grown up. Immediately I do smell a lot of cotton candy but it is balanced out with something a little (and I mean little) musky and fresh.
Shannon from Philadelphia
Finally found my every day scent. Absolutely love it! Kind of smells like Brazilian bum bum cream on me and honestly I'm obsessed. I have so many other perfumes it's a shame they won't get worn now that I have this one.
Lexi from Davie, Florida
It doesn't matter where I'm going, I always have to apply perfume. When I wear this one I notice I get a lot of compliments! The only downside is that it doesn't last long especially if you're active. At my job I'm very active so it goes away quick..but besides that it does smell super good and I can't get enough of it. I only own 4 perfumes by Ariana and I'd say this one and GIAW gets the most compliments. Personally I prefer GIAW only because it lasts longer BUT cloud smells better. Love it!

This perfume is so sweet that I thought I was in a bee hive, I am not into floral scents. However, it does smell good if that is your style. The only reason I bought this is because I was told that it is a dupe for its $500 counterpart, well if the $500 perfume smells sweet like this, I want nothing to do with it. In the end, I returned it for a perfume more my style, one that matches my richness.

perfume!!! AMAZINGGGG! i'm obsessed with it!! lasts HOURS
Ba from Ohio
It's a cute affordable basic vanilla scent. Similar to one found at bath and body works. Not bad at all, but also not as special as people make it out to be.
TDuke from Rancho Cordova, CA
The way everyone hyped this up and by the description I was expecting a dreamy vanilla marshmallow scent, instead I got toilet paper and lavender. I'm not kidding, my first thought after I sprayed myself was toilet paper. The paper/lavender combo was overwhelming and gave me a headache. I had to change my clothes, and I could still smell it. Had to shower. So disappointed. I'm just gonna stick with my Dior Addict for now.
ToriAlex from NY
I love the scent soooo much. Its warm and sexy. The scent does linger on clothes, but it doesn't have the "oomph" for very long. However, I will buy this again because the scent is just perfect!
lee from Alpharetta, GA
I love that the smell last all day long and I get so many compliments!!
