To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was really looking forwards for this perfume to arrive as it’s one of my favourites but unfortunately I am having to right a very negative review about it. Firstly, I open the package and it has a very strange smell, which isn’t pleasant. Okay I thought maybe just the packaging, but as I spray the perfume I notice it ALSO smells like it? Meaning the perfume does not smell anything how it should (I know how the perfume smells as I have purchased it many times).
I then notice my hand is soaked to then realise there are a few huge cracks on the bottle which is causing the perfume to leak! Even worse. I have attached some pictures of the bottle, as you can see large cracks on the bottom and around the sides of the bottle. I am now having to go through the long process of attempting to refund this item even though it is going to be difficult as I have no access to a printer. I just wanted to say I am extremely disappointed with this item and shall not be buying from this company again.
I smelt this on a colleague this summer and was surprised it was a “popstar” perfume as it’s rather sophisticated. The parcel arrived really quickly (well before it was due) and the perfume is just as gorgeous as I remember, and lasts all day. Bargain!
This is definitely my favourite of Ariana's scents - it may not be for those who don't like the sweeter smells but for me, it's ideal. I have an intolerance to strong, musky perfumes so I am forced to wear sweeter smells but I just adore this one. I have about four of her perfumes and this is the only one I wear out. It doesn't last as long as I'd like, in fact I go totally nose blind to it - for all I know I smell like a tart's handbag *shrugs.
This does smell very similar to MFK's Baccarat Rouge 540 with slightly less projection and similar sillage. This smells divine during the mid and drydown but the initial 5-10 minutes can seem a bit cloying. Cotton candy wrapped cloud would be a good description of this scent.
