Ari is good but nothing special, Sweet Like Candy is super sweet in a good way and has great personality, Cloud is my first Ariana perfume, and the love of my life, and now I finally have R.E.M. First and foremost, R.E.M. smells nothing like Cloud. Let's get that out the way. R.E.M. has a clean and dreamy scent. The opening that you get when you first spray it, lasts much longer than Cloud's opening. Both fragrances would work for the same occasions, same outfits, etc. They are both mature and elegant. Cloud is sweeter in the dry down, but R.E.M. is not just some stale cracker. She is well rounded and definitely has some easy to detect sweet notes. I cannot see how anyone would see either of these perfumes as masculine. I think they are confusing "masculine" with "sophisticated". Also, I'm extremely confused with all of the reviews saying that R.E.M. is super strong. I've tested it on my skin and on fabric. In both areas, R.E.M. had a soft to moderate projection. Nothing offensive or easily irritating at all. I sprayed R.E.M. three times on the back of one hand and Cloud once on the back of the other, and still, Cloud projected more.
Again these fragrances are not similar at all. R.E.M. doesn't even remotely make me think that it's a flanker for Cloud. So because they are so different, I don't think there's a reason to choose one over the other for fear that they are too similar. If I absolutely had to choose one, it'd be Cloud but only because of the projection. Apart from the projection, these two perfumes are equals. They are outstandingly beautiful. If heaven had a scent, this would be it.
I have chronic headaches and perfumes often make them worse, but R.E.M., I think because of the soothing and calming lavender, eases my headaches. I was so shocked. All of my bottles are 3.4 oz but I think I'll buy another R.E.M. in a small size just so that I can have it with me to spray myself when I get a headache.
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.

This is a lovely perfume. I've been searching for an affordable perfume with good reviews, and this fit the bill! I was skeptical of a blind buy (especially with fragrance), but the smell is AMAZING. The bottle is gorgeous and I love the sandalwood base. It's a beautiful fragrance and very mature for her collection. I'd recommend this to anyone!

Pros: it smell sophisticated… not like grandma sophisticated, but like sexy-expensive sophisticated. It has the perfect amount of sweetness and musk! It is strong so if you don't like strong pass on this one!
Cons: I'd give it 5stars but the packaging is cheap. The bottle itself is glass but the crystal base is cheap plastic. The bottle does come out of the base which I don't mind because I do travel a lot and the base is pretty bulky.
Julissa from Texas
Definitely not my favorite of them all but it doesn't smell bad. Adorable bottle! Probably wouldn't repurchase it again but I'll definitely use it while I have it.
KC from KC, MO
I bought this on a whim based on the scent description online. Boy am I glad I did!
This perfume is so beautifully feminine and soft. I normally like spicy woody scents, but this one has become my new favorite perfume. If you're looking to smell like sweet sandalwood and marshmallows, this is the perfume for you!
Claire from Midland
this fragrance is so awesome !!! it lasts very long and smells like lavender and caramel, and it dries down to a very vanilla sandalwood like scent. i love it, my favorite
Anton from Georgia
the scent has a sort of shaving cream mixed with axe body spray vibe to it. the bottle is gorgeous so I still keep it around. but the one time I wore it, I got a consistent headache. I really wanted to love this but I'd recommend cloud more.
Mel2001 from TPA
It's sweet you definitely smell that soft musk it's a must have
Rita from WA
It's so fresh and clean! I love it!!!
Arichan from TX
It is one of my favorite fragrances from her! I loved the smell of lavender and sandalwood! There is something about it it smells like cologne and it is more of one of her unisex fragrances . It doesn't smell sweet and girly like her other perfumes like Ari and sweet like candy.
nasihaha from Chicago, IL
This is an amazing fragrance..would def buy again
Rholli_ from Tampa
I've been on the search for my signature scent and this is it. I love the smell of men's cologne that musk gets me every time. This is women's version of musk. It's a very sexy scent. Makes me feel untouchable and desired. I hope she releases this in a 2.0 version like she did her Cloud perfume. I will say that I love really strong scents. I want you to be able to smell me even with the covid guidelines in place and this one isn't that potent but it's still good
mae from pgh
i saw a really good comparison someone made about this perfume so i had to share: they said rem smells like if u got a cinnamon pretzel from auntie anne's at the mall and then walked into abercrombie and fitch and sprayed a few of their fragrances……and i'd have to say that is spot on!! i really don't smell much of the lavender in this fragrance, i think it's somewhat powdery and very mature for an ariana perfume. i personally love it, so far i've gone through an entire 1.7 oz bottle and im still working on my 3.4 oz that i got in a christmas set last year :) i'm a 17 yr old who enjoys this but i also genuinely think that moms and grandmas can rock this also !! maybe not someone who is under 15 tho
LaO from Colorado
I love this perfume!! I've collected almost all of Ari's perfumes: cloud, sweet like candy, thank u next, moonlight, Ari, and R.E.M! Out of all of these perfumes, R.E.M is my favorite. It's absolutely amazing. I'm OBSESSED with soft sweet scents and this fits my needs perfectly. It's not gourmet sweet like Bath and Body's bakery line, it's a sexy soft sweet. To me this scent is very close to Cloud, so if you want to choose between the two rather than get both, cloud is a lot stronger and R.E.M is a lot softer.

REM is my favorite out of all her fragrances, lasts a long time too!
Chary from New York
Like whaaaat?!!!!! I love this scent soo much! For me it lasted all day and I got a lot of compliments! This is my fav from all of the Aris perfumes that I own. I like the smell of cologne and it was perfect for me because I loveee this kind of fragances
Ash from Texas
Not sure if I got a bad batch or what but this smelled like straight up cologne. I gave it to my bf and he always gets asked what cologne he is wearing and he tells them Ariana Grande lol. Great cologne but not a perfume.
B from Texas
This perfume is very generic smelling, nothing special. Smells like powdery makeup and did trigger my allergies. Every time I wear it, I get a headache.
Haley from Arizona
It smells very unisex once applied but throughout the day it gets sweeter! It also lasts SOOOO long so that's good!
bae from New York
I'm a humongous fan of Ariana but I never owned one of her fragrances because they kinda smelled basic. When I saw she dropped this one, I HAD to get it, not only it's named after one of my favorite songs of her, but the packaging is so cute!! I received it as a gift for Christmas, and let me tell you, it smells EXACTLY like Valentino's Voce Viva!! The ending notes are a bit lighter but it's literally the same thing. I've had friends and family smell both and they agreed that R.E.M. is a dupe for Voce Viva! Ball on that budget!
MonaLisa#32 from Davenport, Iowa
I use this daily - it's the perfect daytime fragrance. I see a lot of A.G. fans have left reviews and I wonder if they're able to be impartial. I, personally, am not a fan of hers but I would buy this perfume over and over. I get compliments whenever I wear it. It's not too strong and there's something about it that is so pleasant and un-offensive to people. Several co-workers, who are very opinionated, have even asked what I'm wearing. And the price - so affordable! I usually pay 2-3 times this amount. Love this.
Geo from Texas
This fragrance is absolutely beautiful! It's between very feminine but still on the stronger side. My favorite perfume!
Ace from Salem, NH
I knew it would smell good because of Ari, but wow it's amazing! I use it everyday.
meg from TX
Smells far too similar to "Moonlight".
I was expecting something new & a little more dreamy like "Cloud" or " Ari".
But it didn't meet my expectations, I think it may had been the packaging had that rlly got me to buy it.
But it's not something I would recommend if you were hoping for something new.
adrienne!! from virginia
this lasts sooo long and smells amazing. this goes for most of her perfumes. i really dont get how people say it doesn't last. do you know how many headaches i've given myself by putting 4 sprays of this fragrance on? LOL! (not saying it will give you headaches. im just personally sensitive to smells so this is a me thing)
Sophie from San Francisco
This is the first Ariana Grande perfume I have ever bought and now I'm obsessed... In my opinion, it's the most different out of all her fragrances. Her scents are usually sweet fruity gourmand scents, but this leans more floral. The best way I can describe this is a powdery floral with sweet notes- it is to die for! It's sexy, yet soft and not overpowering. It also lasts ALL day on my skin!
