Most Helpful Positive Review Very interesting fragrance...
I received this fragrance in a sample bag from Ulta. This perfume in particular has the least stars out of any other Ariana fragrance sold on this site. That doesn't surprise me at all. This is a strange scent 100%, but that is kind of what makes it good...if that makes sense. I agree with others on the pickle smell, it's there, it's weird, but it softens out to something very sweet and pleasant. When I wore the sample, I passed by my mom and she asked if I ate kettle corn. When I said no she was like "That's weird. Suddenly I smell kettle corn, it smells good". I knew she was smelling this fragrance and honestly, I got that too once she said it. This does smell kinda like buttered popcorn jelly beans or caramel/kettle corn. MY initial thought when I sprayed it had been that it was very similar to B&BW's Pink Chiffon body mist that I had once. I actually looked up the notes for that, and that particular scent along with this one both have a pear top note, which I think might be what's responsible for the tartness and weirdness of the scent. I think everyone is right honestly: it smells like pickles, it smells like sugary buttered popcorn, it smells like vanilla coconut, and it smells like Pink Chiffon. It's all of that in one and it's so bad that it's good, but I can see it being a train wreck on different skin chemistry because this is one of those scents that's really unforgiving. Plus, it's very strong and slaps you and everyone else in the face when you wear it so it could be bad if it doesn't agree with you. Overall, I give it like 7.5 out of 10. I don't LOVE it, but I really like it. It's very unique and that's good in my book but others might not agree. Get a decant or a sample if you can first before buying.
Most Helpful Critical Review Don't smell the pickles, but...
I do not smell the pickles scent everyone smells and I've even had friends smell this... and they also do not smell the pickles. My beef with this perfume? It does not last!!! It is the weakest perfume I have EVER had. You can spray this on yourself and literally within minutes the scent is completely gone. So for you ladies who smell pickles, it will only be for a second. However, when you smell the tester... it is so strong and lasts ALL DAY. I literally tried the tester out TWICE before buying this perfume to make sure I liked it. Then made a separate trip to purchase and bought the biggest one, because of the tester. Well, the tester is NOT THE SAME. Unless I received a defective batch... to me this is FALSE ADVERTISING. I googled this and apparently this is common with perfumes; however, I have NEVER experienced one so blatantly different. It is two different perfumes. On a scale from 1 to 10 in scent and strength, the tester is a strong 9 or 10. The product you buy is negative 30. So disappointed and honestly disgusted that the tester is placed out when it is clearly not the same.
So in closing.... 80% of the comments say you will smell like pickles.
I do not smell pickles, but what is in the package is NOT WHAT IS IN THE TESTER.
This is false advertising and honestly I think a valid reason for me to avoid this brand from here on out.

Sarah from Murfreesboro, Tn
I love this perfume. One or two sprays and I am all set. I love the way it smells and the scent lingers all day!
Pita from Ny
The smells is sweet. It's not a powerful smell, which is great for me. I'm sensitive to smell as a lot of perfumes give me migraines. This perfume is perfect for me.
Liz from SC
I've grown to love this perfume!! I wasn't a big fan of the smell at first but the dry down is the best and so sweet!

BUT THIS ONE
Caitlin from Hawaii
This is so such a sweet and cute perfume to wear anywhere. I love how girly the smell is. Definitely beats Cloud and is one of my favorites!
Aprilbaby from Sacramento
To me personally it smells like a cozy coconut scent. Idk where this "pickle" scent is coming from in the other reviews. I feel like it smells like a cozy , warm, inviting coconut scent.
smells like crayons
Mady from Oxford Ms
this is not a smell for me at all! it literally smells like crayons. i have sweet like candy and R.E.M and they smell lovely but this is not it.
ANGEL from Utah
COCONUT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SENTS AND IT SMELLS AMAZING GO BUT IT RN!
MY FIRST AND I LOVE IT!
Cait from Hawaii
In the beginning I wanted the cloud perfume but when I smelled the perfume it smelled to much like cologne. So I fell in love with this one because it smells like candy and if the color pink had a smell! It is strong but I like that because with lasts me through the day🤎
Smells like sweat
Abby from Texas
I really really want to love this. The packaging is cute . But it smells so bad
I get what everyone was warning us about now...
Nat from Ventura
Okay yes, I did get a strong dill scent when I first sprayed this on which was off putting. But as I wore it longer I picked up a slight leather/rubber scent (???) and more of the sweetness came through. Not my favorite scent even though I'm OBSESSED with the packaging
Abby R. from California
I'm not sure why everyone is saying it smells cheap or like pickles. This was not the case for me, Thank U Next is absolutely beautiful! I wear it almost daily with the exception of R.E.M and Sweet Like Candy. It's a perfect balance of sweet and airy, not too overbearing. When I wear it everyone asks what I'm wearing and that I smell very good. Absolutely recommend and would purchase again and again!
Dummy from PA
I bought this for my wife for Christmas, with those bonus fuzzy little grandma slippers. What a mistake that was. She used it for the first time, did a hair toss and just said "Thanks" and handed me some divorce papers. Just kidding. It smells pretty nice and she likes the little heart bottle. A Christmas win.
Good fragrance, watch out for scent change
DR1985 from PA
I got this perfume after I had smelled a sample in a magazine & it's my 1st Ariana Grande perfume. I read really good reviews on her fragrances. Ordered the smaller bottle- although the packaging is cute, the heart around the bottle is quite annoying & u cant spray it with it on. second after spraying 3 - 4 sprays, it smells very different on your body, so remember that when purchasing it. I always purchase the rollers/samples before the bigger bottle because of this reason. The last and most important thing I didn't like would be that it does not last long at all. After spraying, I would say it last about 1.5 or 2 hours. Prob wouldn't purchase again.
Worst Ariana perfume
Leah from North Carolina
When I first sprayed the perfume I was immediately hit with the strong smell of coconuts. My mom smelled it on me and said it was way too strong and smelled like chemicals/strong sunscreen. I returned it the next day after purchasing it online.
Don't wait any longer! Buy it!
Jennifer from San Diego, CA
I really didn't expect much from this perfume but WOW it smells really good and it lasts ALL day on me. Every time I wear it my mom & sister ask what perfume I'm using. I even bought the bottle for my mom. She loves it. This easily became my everyday perfume because you get 3.4 ounces for $64 & it smells great and last longer on me than expensive perfumes. You can't beat it for the price. I love this perfume as much as I love flower bomb from viktor & Rolf & Valentino so that says a lot.
Asia from White Plains
Amazinggg. Doesn't smell like pickles(depends on your body chemistry) it smells sweet, and so so amazing. My fav out of all her perfumes! Buy it! You won't regret it.
I don't like it
Paula from 14506 woodbeamway
People said it smells like coconuts, I don't smells coconut at all. This fragrance has a super weird smell of pepper, my nose tickles every time I smell it. I have cloud and R.E.M, and I love both... but this one is a big no for me, not what I expected at all.
TUN stan from Skokie, IL
This smells very warm with a little musk and sweetness mixed in. I can't stop smelling myself
Love sweet smells but this isnt it
bbytrin from Fairfax Virginia
I usually love sweet smells and can adapt to perfumes even if they're in a different smell range. This perfume is one of the worst smelling things to me. I'm really disappointed because I really enjoyed all of Ari's perfumes (R.E.M. and sweet like candy being my faves) but even wearing this around my mother she said it smelt like a citrus hazmat chemical. I really do not recommend buying unless you try it in the store and actually enjoy the scent.
Jessica from Southern California
