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.

I bought this and sprayed it and thought it smelled too much like pickles. I thought maybe it was just me, or my nose. But, after searching online, I found out it wasn't just me. I bought it because I'm a huge fan of Ariana Grande. But, It didn't live up to my expectations. At least the bottle is pretty. :(
Tracey from VA
This perfume smells so good. Very light and delicate. Lingers in a positive way. Lasts hours.
Pickles from West Virginia
It's a beautiful concept but it smells of pickles and while I love Ariana grande I just can't use this perfume other than for just its looks
Wanted to love so bad but ...
Plaiine Jane Artistry from Saint Louis
Ok, I read the reviews and still bought it because I know everyone smells something different when smelling perfumes. The biggest thing that stood out was a few saying it smelled like PICKLES, I'm like hmmm ok but that is the after smell I got. It smells so good when I put it on but when I walked back into the room where I sprayed myself and that's all I smelled which smelled like sweet sour pickles. At first I was like maybe it's just something weird going on with my nose but nope, had that same lingering smell when I wore it again. Just felt it didn't agree with my body chemistry but when you first spray it in general it smells so good. I ended up returning and purchased REM by Ariana Grande.
Not a single complaint

I absolutely love this perfume. I have gotten many compliments while wearing this and I am so happy I brought it.
I would buy this perfume forever and ever
Chaparra from Lufkin Texas
Is very sweet and younger
Crisp, woody scent
DaniT from North Carolina
I love this! I worried it would be to young for me (I'm older than Miss Grande) but I love the fresh scent! In a weird way, it reminds me of my favorite air freshener from Bath & Body Works (the "Leaves" one!), and catching a whiff of it on my wrist reminds me of a crisp fall day!
Jenni from La puente
Always getting compliments! It's a must ☺️
This made the perfect gift for spring!

pickles...but I like it?
helen from Pennsylvania
I love Ariana Grande and I love perfume, so I had to buy this. This is a fruity gourmand perfume with a kick. I did notice a bit of green/herbaceous smell, to me it sort of smelled like a dash of cilantro. I'm guessing that's what people are calling the dill pickle smell? I think the dry down makes this perfume worth it, because the pickley smell calms down and you're left with something that is sweet, but there is a freshness that is left with that slight cilantro/pickle smell. I took one star off because it's not for everyone and the longevity/sillage isn't that great.
not so sure
hayden from Arkansas

Not Next....This Is The One
Annaliese from TX
Ok soo I've been looking for my signature scent for about a year now, I've spent hundreds of dollars. Yes, I'm kind of embarrassed but I'm don't regret buying new perfumes, I've searched high and low. Yes this kinda starts off as a pickle smell, but quickly turns into a soft sweet kettle popcorn smell. I'm in love!! It's buttery soft, warm sweet smell! I can't get enough!!! I will always repurchase this one!!
Ari is QUEEN from Centennial, CO
💗Heaven sent this to me, lol... Lots of reviews say it smells like pickles, it doesn't to me HOWEVER it smells fresh like pears... duh(that is one of the top notes)! It is very sweet and soft just like Ari. The packaging is GLAMOROUS. It totally reminds me of the music video!!!! I really like how it comes out of the broken heart so it is easier to spray💔 I can smell it on me ALL DAY! Smells and looks like heaven. I ordered in store it arrived in 5 days💗
Donna from USA
So I don't understand this pickle comment from some people because I do not smell anything like that. This scent notes for me are raspberry, marshmallow cream and a hint of rose maybe. I'm excited because it's a dupe for my favourite discontinued perfume, Eau so sexy From Victoria's Secret, if you have ever smelled that one, this is exactly what it smells like. Also some say it doesn't last long for them when this one is very long lasting for me. I receive many compliments on this scent and it has become one of my signature scents and I have well over 200 bottles of perfume as I am a perfume lover. A couple other signatures scents I have are Ralph Lauren Blue, Decadence, Black Opium, Juicy Couture Gold, Pink Sugar, Hypnose by Lancome, Bad girl, You by Glossier, I lost these so you can get an idea if this will work for you based on my fragrance choices
Not a game changer
Ang from NYC
It seems interesting at first and then it just fades into something I absolutely hated. It didn't last long at all either. I loved all her other perfumes and wanted to support but this one had to be returned.
I would but so much of these
Hamster girl lol from Usa
I hostly have no problem it's smells awesome and pickles but I love how it came with its mini perfume and cream!❤️
Really great perfume!
Delilah from Pennsylvania
This is a really good product, it smells AMAZING! It smells a little bit sweet but at the same time it smells like perfume. The packaging it comes in is also so cute. The only thing I don't like about it is that is doesn't stay on that long. It stays on long enough to make me smell good for awhile, but not long enough. Other than that, I LOVE IT!
Would buy again
Trina from Tennessee
Don't be scared of bad reviews.
Kantima from Cincinnati,oh
If you like sweet kind of perfume, I guarantee that you will definitely love this one. It's smells similar to Cloud but better in my opinion. It is sweet and playful, sexy, not too mature or too young just somewhere in the middle. I'm in love.
