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'm a hairdresser & work very closely with people daily so I never want an over powering perfume. This is perfect! Everyone's skin chemistry is different - so keep that in mind! It's important to let it dry down because it def changes! Perfect for summer, light & airy scent that stays with you all day. I get many compliments every time I wear this scent.
This scent captivated me from the moment I smelled the sample inside an Ulta magazine. Then I actually sprayed it on me and the result was a bit different to where it took me a while to warm up to it. I didn't buy it right away, but once I got a whiff of it on a shirt in the hamper days later, I could not stop sniffing it and I was like ok, if I smell that good then I'm sold!
I know everyone's body chemistry works differently with a scent, so it may not be for you. On me, however, it changes. I'm not sure what contributes to that (maybe drier skin days vs moisturized skin days?) but the three scent profiles people have pointed out are sweet, fresh, and my most favorite compliment of all that I get consistently "you smell like magic!". It's my absolute favorite thing to hear and I get it often. I work in a huge hospital and rub shoulders with tons of patients, coworkers and employees daily and get compliments CONSTANTLY. It has amazing lasting power as well and smells just as strong after a 12-hour shift as when I first sprayed it (but not too overpowering).
In summary, this is an amazing scent that can run more masculine or sweeter (feminine) on a person depending on the body chemistry. It's a complex scent that I honestly can't describe, so I guess "magical" seems to be the most fitting word for it since it's what most people say. All I can say is even if you're not sold in the beginning, try out the travel size like I did and just see how it wears on you! It morphs throughout the day in my opinion, so it just may surprise you. One thing I know - you WILL get compliments galore!
This was my go to scent for a few years now;however, it doesn't last as long as it did. One pump and this would last all say. Now, within a few hours, BOOM, scent gone. I had recommended this scent to a lot of people. Too bad I can't do that anymore. Wonder if Ariana Grande's other scents have gone downhill as well
It smells AMAZING and the packaging is sooooo cute definitely buying again 🤩
heard so many good things about it and was extremely disappointed when i sprayed it on myself and it smelled like cheap makeup. the smell did not leave my skin for hours until i finally decided to try and wash it off and it STILL lingered. don't buy.
