Smells amazing, but doesn’t seem to last.

The smell is absolutely amazing. I get a lot of compliments [so long as they get to me before it wears off]As noted the issue is longevity. It seems to die down a bit too much after about 30 minutes. While you can still smell it, its rather faint and often hard to smell.Though for the price, i consider it worth it, as reapplication is cheap.

Great fragrance!

CK one shock is a great scent. I found it at a TJ Maxx store on sale. The scent itself is a kind-of spicy, fruity-fresh smell. It also lasts a good while, totally worth buying.

not bad, but I did tire quickly of it

This is a rather non-descript but pleasant floral/spice type perfume, not bad, and here I see it at a significant discount which seems right. Some will like it, a few will hate it, but it won’t rock anyone’s world-pardon the expression-if that’s what you’re looking for.

Too many fragrances that are too similar

VI is more floral than fruity to me. It’s young, flirty, fresh, bright, clean and clear. VI is another fragrance that offers a take on a modern rose without being all about roses, if that makes any sense.There’s much to like about this fragrance but not much to love imo. There is so many similar fragrances, yet one could do a lot worse that VI. However at this price, I’d go for something else!Sample-worthy, not bottle-worthy.

Sexy, Uplifting and Pretty Floral Scent

I am not usually into the floral type fragrances, however a co-worker introduced to me Very Irresistible Sensual by Givenchy a few years back and I just loved it.Not only was the bottle a gorgeous pink to purple shade of glass that could be a decorative accent all in itself but it smells just sexy and like walking through a flower garden! This is in my opinion a great spring and summertime scent. My husband just loved this frangrance on me as well. I even got a miniature version of the bottle to carry in my purse, along with body lotion and body wash, one of the nice things about buying the sets!My bottle of Very Irresistible by Givenchy was the 1 oz. Eau de Toilette spray and it retailed at the time for around $65. You don’t need to use much of it at one time and the scent seemed to stay with me for hours unlike some other perfumes I have tried.An uplifting, sexy, floral scent that stays with you and comes in a gorgeous bottle. What more can I say! I do highly recommend this perfume.

A lifelong favorite

Nothing else I know goes so well with spring & summer as Anais Anais. It’s a fragrance I’ve loved for the past 25 yrs & still continue to wear it today (not every day, but it’s always in my perfume collection). Fresh, floral, bright, vibrant, feminine, clean, invigorating. It never fails to lift my mood when I want a pick me up. On fabrics it lingers for days, which I love. Dries down beautifully & softly. Always a winner.I tried the eau de parfum also but I much prefer the eau de toilette which I find is lighter & fresher. The parfum is heavier in floral scent with more sillage. The price for the large 3.4oz EDT here on Amazon is amazing compared to the 1.7oz price.

A Classic

I was first introduced to this perfume in the 80’s when my friend in high school wore it. I loved it. It was such a soft floral scent that was really feminine and girly. I sort of forgot about it over the years but smelled it the other day on someone passing by and a flood of memories came back. Now I have to buy some for myself. I forgot how lovely the scent was until I smelled it again!

Disappointing for me, but if you like clean scents, this may be the one for you!

I feel bad giving this a two star review, because scents are so personal in general. I did a blind buy of this, not having smelt it before. That was perhaps a mistake on my part, but typically I know what I like and am not disappointed. However, the smell to me is too powdery, too soapy, and too overpowering to really be enjoyable. If you love “clean” scents – then this might be the scent for you. It’s extremely clean, and that is the dominant theme in the scent. In its defense, I personally find the smell more appealing after it settles on my skin for a few hours, but immediately after spraying it, I tend to find it to be overwhelming and overpowering. My personal opinion is that a scent should be defining and appealing, but not overpowering. I personally don’t want people to smell me the moment I enter a room, but rather prefer that they notice the scent when they come closer. I personally just find this scent to be too one-note and dominant to be something I’d wear with any regularity. It’s not offensive, it’s just too much. But scents work different on everyone’s body, so perhaps it’s simply not the right fit for me. I don’t hate it, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

Very clean

It took me a day or so to get used to this cologne. It especially smells dry and clean when you first spray it. It’s honestly much better after it’s been on you for an hour or so. It’s not like the fragrances I wear most of the time (mostly fresh, aqua scents, loving Hugo Element), but that’s honestly why I got it. Really, what’s the point of having 10 colognes that all smell similar? I’m trying to keep my selection new and different, and this scent goes a long way in helping me do that.

Great smell that doesn’t last

Suprised by how much I loved this scent. I was looking for tropical summer scent. I sampled this, left the store and kept falling more in love, so jumped on Amazon and bought it! Doesn’t last at all though. Not surprised as this sells at Walmart etc.and none of the cheap celebrity scents last, but I still like the smell very much. Quite cheap too, so you don’t have to feel bad re-applying it

Love this scent…

I love love love this scent. Next to Jessica Simpson’s Fancy love this is my go to daytime perfume. And I’m not usually a celebrity perfume fan, only because I’m not a fan of these celebrities’ music/work lol. It’s very fruity/sweet and it lasts a long time on me. The only thing that is annoying and worth mentioning is the shape of the bottle. It’s really hard to hold with one hand and spray at the same time. The base is too wide to hold and the top is too short to hold as well. Maybe it’s me and my hands are not big enough but I have to use both hands to use this perfume. Am I crazy? please tell me I’m not the only one with this problem… Anyways nice perfume, affordable too

Smells Wonderful but Doesn’t Last Long

This fragrance is the best that I’ve smelled in a long time. It’s wonderful. Fresh citrus smell. I used a tester and couldn’t get it off my mind. I had to run back out and get some. The bottle I bought didn’t last anywhere near as long as what I tried in the tester. I really do love the smell but it doesn’t last long on me. In an hour, you cannot smell it on me at all even if you put your nose right on the spot you sprayed. For smell I would give this 5 stars and more if I could but for lasting quality, I would give it a 1 or 2 star.

Fresh, Clean and Crisp

It is very hard to over apply this cologne. It isn’t heavy or cloying. It has a very clean and crisp smell that is almost aquatic. There is a subtle sweetness to it from the citrus notes. Definitely reminds me of summer and the ocean. It has a freshness to it that can’t be beat. A scent that is good for all seasons and all occasions. The perfect gift to buy any special guy. The bottle is nice looking too.

A great beginning… but then what?

having a collection of over 25 fragrances, I was intrigued by this Versace addition. the popularity of summer aromatic aquatics has become a little bit redundant from one house to the next,and while this fragrance opens up with a beautiful blend of citrus notes and maybe a touch of lavender, it has absolutely no projection and within two hours disappears. It is a great bottle, even though it’s made out of plastic, and sprays very well, but if you tend to have drier skin where fragrances just don’t have the sillage required to wear all day in the office or a day out, I really can’t recommend this. I do not want to give a false impression that I do not like it, about it has a very unique take on the other blue fragrances out there, just for me it lacked that uniqueness and punch that I was looking for.As always… my best advice is to always try it first on your skin and wait a few hours to see what it does.

Blech… too much musk!

This perfume doesn’t really smell so bad, but it’s got so much musk in it that it literally chokes me to death! My husband likes it, but I hate it so much that I can’t even wear it for him. I’ve never purchased a perfume in my life that I couldn’t wear. Usually I can take them or leave them, but this one is just nasty. If you love musk, you’ll love it and if you hate musk you’ll hate it. I’ve tried Pink Sugar too and it was way better but still not what I was looking for. There’s an odd smell to it that I don’t care for either (like a hint of a burnt smell or something), but it’s ok and I can wear it. My favorite is Fancy by Jessica Simpson. I know, I wish someone else made it… anyone else lol, but it has a light, not too sweet/candy/girlish scent of cotton candy and vanilla. It’s by far my favorite perfume along with a few others I’ll list below. The only downside to it is that it doesn’t last as long as I think it should, but I get a ton of compliments on it every time I wear it! Especially when I use Victoria’s Secret Candy Baby body spray underneath. Other scents I like are: VS Candy Baby, Lucky You, Versace Red Jeans, Candies (yellow and orange), Gap Dream, Halle Berry (purple, pure orchid I think, but it doesn’t smell flowery… it has a little bit of a fresh fruity smell), Euphoria CK, Intimately Beckham.Euphoria and IB are my least faves of the whole list… and the list pretty much goes in order from fave to least fave, though I might flip Halle and Gap Dream. I got IB bc it was supposed to have a cotton candy/vanilla smell. It smells good, but it’s got this note in it somewhere that reminds of me of horrid old women’s perfume and I can’t shake it. I can wear it and it really does smell good and last a long time, but that one note turns me off just enough that I won’t buy it anymore. Euphoria was given to me and it like it pretty ok. Smells better in the air than on the skin for me, but still a keeper.CB, LY, RJ smell kind of sweet and candyish. LY and RJ smell a little more like an adult woman’s perfume, but not old. Just right. Candies is a sweetish citrus that I love, Gap Dream has kind of a grape/fruity smell as does Halle Berry but Halle Berry is better quality and smells less teenager-y. As you can tell, I like citrus, sweet/vanilla and fruit smells. I HATE musk and flowery smells. Hope this helps someone! 🙂 HeatherHeather UpChurchArt & Design Studios[…][…]

Sweet, musky, soft, warm.

Everyone has their own tastes for perfume, so reviews for scent are exceptionally subjective. I like this perfume because I like soft, sultry, musky, warm, delicately sweet scents. I dislike floral and scents that are overly sweet.Delicious Cotton Candy does smell like cotton candy, but that is only the first note. After that, you detect warm vanilla and musk. I would say this is musky like Euphoria or Princess (Vera Wang), but sweeter. However, the cotton candy scent is NOT as sweet as Pink Sugar.If you prefer cool fruity or floral, you may not like this. I love it. It is a sexy, sweet, soft, and warm smell.(Minus one star – it does not last long. I get about four hours of scent.)

Marva Mccleary, WA

Comparable to Pink Sugar

This one is for all the gourmand lovers! Its vanillic, and creamy! And yes….it reminds me of cotton candy for sure. Now, I dunno what it is (perhaps I am not spraying enough) but it doesnt last long on me at all. I apply AFTER applying body lotion, AND body oil….so I thought that would be enough of a foundation to keep the scent around a bit longer but it sticks around for about 2 hours (Perfume fanatics may say the “sillage”…is weak) But I am just gonna stick to…its a light wisp of a memory after 120 minutes have passed. 🙂

Smells like strong cinnamon

I read the good reviews about this cologne and decided to get it for my husband as a gift. I never smelled the scent, so I was taking a chance. After wearing it, he smelled like sweet cooking spice. We thought maybe the smell would die down, so he went to work with it on. He said that people kept asking who was wearing cinnamon scented cologne while he was there. He knew it was him, but he didn’t say anything…LOL! I don’t like it because of the constant smell of cinnamon spice which reminds me of strong Big Red gum. I kept getting queasy, so we just decided to throw it away. Maybe his body chemistry just didn’t go with it. Overall, If you like the smell of pumpkin pies on your skin, then I would suggest this. If not, do not buy this scent. And from now on when it comes to scents, I will have to sniff before buying.

My standby cologne

This is my second choice for cologne. It has a strong modern smell, and goes well with semi casual or formal evening wearing. It is highly versatile.My only complaint is that is not that long lasting, and the smell fades quicker than I’d like for a $50 bottle of colgone.
