I have to agree with foetidus mostly...all of the fruit smells artificial to me, or maybe they are just overpowered by the alcoholic part--I really can't stand the alcoholic smell. Unfortunate, because I too smell the raspberry, which I love, and I am a fruit and sweet note lover, but this one just doesn't work for me.
With this one nature comes at us as it often does in the modern world Ė third hand. This is a fragrance copying the smell of a drink that is named after the ambiance of a certain beach activity. Itís hard to pass up a fragrance with a name like this, but Iím afraid the name is the best thing it has going for it. I definitely get the citrus (orange) and I think I get the peach and the alcohol, but I donít get the cranberry. Mostly the fruity notes smell plastic to my nose. The fragrance smells more like the fruity fragrances that are sold to preteens than the drink. I guess itís really not a bad fragrance for just plain fun, or to make fun of Ė whichever you prefer. There are a lot of Demeterís that I like, but this is not as good as the others. Sex on the Beach has Demeterís typical very poor longevity.
Just love this silly sexy juice. Besides raspberries I get a hint of melon and pineapple...it's flirty and fun and l-a-s-t-s-!!
Though traditionally the drink has no raspberries in it, Sex on the Beach by Demeter smells entirely of raspberries. It reminds me a lot of a more potent version of Hot Couture by Givenchy minus the incense note. This one is completely feminine and one of the best I've ever smelled on a woman. Even the most effeminate man in the world could not pull off this one IMO.
