Most Helpful Positive Review So Elegant and Feminine!!!
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.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not as impressed as I was expecting
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.

Miss Ariana Grande does it again
Shandelly from Massachusetts
This perfume is yet another win for Ms. Grande in her perfume endeavors. Smells fresh and clean and doesn't have that perfumes-ness that makes you smell like an old lady. Love it. Way better scent than cloud in my opinion. Might be my new fav from her or a close tie to Ari.
I bought 3 its gifts for my daughters

I know they will love it ,Its a christmas gift !
cc from CA
I was so excited for this fragrance! I collect most of Ariana's perfumes, and I had the highest hopes after reading the description. Sadly, I don't get any notes of the yummy caramel or marshmallow. It smells exactly like baby powder, men's cologne and lavender pillow spray. :( the bottle is gorgeous though, but the scent is not for me.
perfect mix of sweet and floral
stephanie from NY - New York
i really love this perfume it's so sweet and soft and girly with a hint of floral accents. It's a perfect gift even if you aren't a fan of ariana. the packaging is so gorgeous and unique and such a beautiful perfume !!!
Stephanie Sara from Morris County, NJ
Honestly, I bought this bc of how much i loved thank u, next and was running low. I opted for the 3.4 oz bc it's just the best deal, and if I didn't like it I'd be fine with gifting it, but I'm so happy I get to keep it all to myself. It's like sweet and maturity in a bottle. I will be buying again! It lasts long for me personally and one spray goes a long way, isn't that how you want all perfume to be though? If you're hesitant, don't be.
It smells amazing! But quality for lasting not so good
Poonie from Redding ca
Sticks better to clothing rather then skin due to the quality..like how you can apply juicy and it lasts all day...this one fades very fast.
I bought the 100mL one😅😅😅
Ariana Grande Fan :) from Montréal, CA
I'm a huge Ariana Grande fan and I've bought her last perfume 'Thank U, Next'. Would recommend for people that love smelling like celebrities and people that like to put a little bit of perfume that is kind of strong but smelling professional :) . Love the perfume a lot !
P.S. Buy the 50mL format, 100mL is a lot😅😅😅
arianator from LA
More on the mature and formal side as opposed to her other perfumes but still amazing for special occasions
Would buy this again
Yoly from New York
I love this fragrance is perfect I wear it the first day and I was getting guy chasing me when I first spray this I thought I was in heaven
First Ariana Fragrance Purchase!
Ana from Phoenix, AZ
This was my first ever perfume of hers because of all of the hype that was put behind it as it was released. It not only exceeded my expectations but alongside the rest of the perfumes, it is one of my favorites. The scent is very "sexy". It's the perfect date perfume. Absolutely love!
I would buy again
Chandey from Huntsville Alabama
I tried this product on in the store and then went home and loved how it settled on my skin and purchased it the next day! I would say this is a more mature product for Ariana and perfect for fall/winter. It is long lasting and worth the purchase
Love this new scent!
Kit Kat from Miami, FL
I have been a fan of Ariana's perfume line, and this is one I can add to my collection! In order of favorites I would say:
3. Moonlight and Sweet Like Candy
5. Thank u Next
I was not a huge fan of Thank u Next, and that it didn't work with my body chemistry. I ended up giving a friend that one but love all the rest. Perfect for any occasion, but I would use R.E.M for evening events and special events.
WORTH THE PRICE!
Luis from Massachusetts
This is one ariana's best fragrances and one of the best i've ever smelled! The scent is super strong at first but then it dies down to more of a calming and relaxing scent! Not only that but the packaging is so pretty! My new To-Go fragrance! Definitely buying again!
Bunny from Texas
I don't regret buying this! the smell is so soft and pretty. Didn't think I would like the lavender but it's not overpowering. Very long lasting on me and the bottle is so cute.
Lys from Home
This is queen worthy I'm in love with every Ariana perfume and I knew I had to get it, it's no waste of money for sure.
Best perfume ever

Coda from Denver CO
OMG why does it have to smell amazing! Due to covid I wasn't able to smell the tester, but I was PLEASANTLY surprised at how wonderful it smells. Whoever said it smells like a nail salon obviously has never had their nails done. Smells like a marshmallow lavender dream.
Caseymayy13 from Arizona
The scent is so amazing! I love that it is not as sweet as her other scents. Also it lasted all day! Best Buy
