I bought this perfume on a whim after smelling a few in the store. Now, keep in mind, I was wearing a mask, and I have slight congestion, so my nose isn't the best right now. (I couldn't even smell Cloud when I tried) But this was by far the nicest smelling of the perfumes in store. (My mom and I all smelled God is A Woman, Thank U Next, Moonlight, Cloud, and I believe Sweet Like Candy along with this one.) Maybe it's just my stuffy nose, but I can smell this without it being overwhelming or too much to give a headache. Lavender is a scent I'm neutral on, and I think depending on the other notes it can feel powdery and old ladylike. This is not the case for R.E.M. at all! I think the salted caramel and marshmallow notes help sweeten the scent, giving it personality. I feel that this is a scent for any age, even younger teen girls who are Ariana fans. This isn't too mature, but it's not overly sweet where it seems juvenile. The scent is a nice mix of feminine and sugar, but not in a way that's too cavity inducing. To me, I think of a dream or fairytale, it's very elegant, but definitely something that can be great for every day wear. I sprayed two sprays on my arm to test it's longevity while I worked. The smell has lasted 13 hours now, and I can only tell a slight fading towards the latter half of the day. The scent seems subtle and I couldn't smell unless I pressed my nose to my arm, but again, I only did two sprays and I'm slightly ill. I'm not even a "stan" or a particularly huge fan of Ariana, but I heard great reviews of the scent, and the bottle happens to be my favorite color, as well as R.E.M. being my favorite song by her. I would recommend this even without having the other party smell it. But I always recommend smelling yourself, since particular notes may not vibe with your own preferences for smells, but I think this has mostly tame notes that blend gracefully together with a nice balance of tones, that a blind buy shouldn't be a regret if this sounds enticing.
I love Ariana Grande and wanted to love this but I don't. At first, I sniffed the exterior of the bottle without spraying. It evoked memories of Bonne Bell Lip Smackers but didn't love the nostalgia. I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt so I sprayed myself later. My reaction wasn't that it wasn't horrible but it reminded me of something which I didn't know if I liked. I worked it out with my boyfriend: It smells like a nail/hair/tanning salon. I don't have anything against salons but since it smells like something generic, I don't know if I love smelling like it. Usually I will keep a fragrance even if I don't love it but if my boyfriend doesn't love it, I don't know if I am happy to keep it.
Other things to note:
1) On me, I smell no lavender. Someone thought of Mon Guerlain because of that ingredient alone and as a daily Mon Guerlain wearer, this is not to be compared.
2) I was pleasantly surprised by the sillage and longevity of this fragrance. I got a little on my hair last night and still smell it this morning.
3) White musk was predominant on me personally but I wouldn't call this a fall-only scent.
4) Some reviewers said this was an old lady scent, but this is more of like a little girls scent. The target market has to be 9-15.
5) If you love Ari, keep it! But you may not feel transported to a cosmic world. I was transported to a hair salon.
i can understand why people may say this smells like a cologne or that it's strong - it's more of a "mature" scent. it's not the typical fun and light fragrance a middle schooler would wear. i love it, though. like i said, it's a "mature" fragrance but it smells sweet as it wears. at first i thought it didn't last longer than an hour but after a couple hours my coworkers could still smell it very strongly! the packaging is nice but my favorite part is the bottle holder.
Every boy compliments this smell. Every girl compliments this smell. Everyone I know that smells this on me asks what it is. I am not me without this smell. I recommend this smell to everyone. It lasts all day and I can still smell it on my clothes even if I wore them days ago. This product will always be a purchase I will continue to buy. 100/10 recommend!!!!!
I usually just buy body sprays but I really wanted this perfume after sampling all of her perfumes to figure out which one I wanted. my boyfriend got it for my birthday and I love the smell so much I think I want to throw my body sprays away.
Don't even bother reading the description on the notes because all this smells like is quince (guava smelling type fruit) with a hint of lavender. This scent smells so sharp, there's no floral or sweetness or musk or anything to balance it. It just smells sharp on the nose! It just isn't her best fragrance and I only have been complimented by older ladies in their 60s. Do what u will with that information. This gives me such a bad headache and honestly nauseous sometimes. I keep trying to give it chances because it was expensive and honestly just wanted to get rid of it and not be wasteful. But I've honestly given up. It doesn't make me happy. It's nothing special. I guess if u rlly did want to try/wear this, it would have to be a summer scent. It lasts about 3 ish hours before it starts to fade.
