Reviews of Spark for Women

This is one of my favorite perfume lines. I would say honey, cinnamon, and vanilla are the most prevalent of the listed scents; although I would say that amber possibly stronger than vanilla and my skin loves the vanilla. I'm pretty sure there's more than just cinnamon spice in it too, at least some pepper. The rose is noticeable, but the floral is more of a background note adding to the sweetness, and I enjoy that.

I do have to admit that I prefer the male version a little more, but this is a very pleasant amber spice too.

For a perfume I found at Goodwill for $3, this isn't that bad. It's -strong-, so not for the faint of nose. While the boozy, spicy vanilla-musk that flares out of the bottle can be quite strident and slightly plasticky, with measured (read: LIGHT) application Spark can be quite cozy and comforting. I prefer the smell of it on clothing/linens and as a room spray over the smell of it on my skin, though. If Chanel Coromandel is cozy like a favorite cashmere sweater, then Spark is cozy like an old over-sized t-shirt lifted from an old lover.

Somewhat like Obsession, but a little brighter and more cheerful. A bit like Organza Indecence, but much less vanillic. The spice plays a minor role and the floral elements are very subtle. Overall, the feeling of Spark is warm and comforting.

I am surprised that Spark has not been reviewed more (or loved more) because it really is a very nice fragrance. But then again, this style is a bit 'out of fashion' at the moment. It will be back again, I'm sure.

It does remind me somewhat of Obsession its sweeter, but its in the same ballpark. Spark is quite spicy and for several minutes Im thinking that maybe there IS a Liz Claiborne scent that I can find worthwhile. No such luck. The drydown is, as takemyhusbandplz says, dull and uninspired.

I found Spark by reading reviews of Organza Indecence on other websites. I loved Indecence but was crushed when I discovered that it 'turned' on me after approx. 2 hours of wearing. Like another poster that I read elsewhere, an odd Play Doh accord surfaces on my skin. I read that Spark is similar but does not have that note that some people encounter. Spark does work much better on me. I believe it is sweeter but it may be because I am using the parfum. I recently noticed that, comparing Indecence to Spark, the Liz Claiborne fragrance seems to have a breeze blowing through an openness inside of the fragrance in the same location as the Indecence has that problem note that comes out on my skin after the drydown. It is sweet, at least in the parfum version, so I have to be careful in application not to overdo it. I just discovered by accident that a little citrus scented body butter (Delohn+ Mango) near the fragrance on my skin also tones down the sweetness nicely.

I did not find spark super warm, but in saying that, it is definitely not cool at all. The honey-caramel top notes seem to parallel eachother and complement the rose petals which smell fresh rather than dried. Someone remarked that it is hard to enjoy the florals, well I wouldn't call it a floral fragrance by any means- it seems more of an amber to me, or maybe thats the slight warmth to it. I think the fragrance manages to be well-balanced and still have all of the notes distinguish themselves somewhat. I don't own any other fragrance like this, so I will keep it around, but I'm not sure where or what I will wear it too.
