I bought Lauren Style three years ago at the duty-free abroad. I thought it was pretty average then, just another nice 'pink floral' - nice enough but nothing really special. Then I just left it alone and ignored it through its want of something special, as all I got from it was nothing but 'watermelon'. Just watermelon, nothing else. Melon isn't my favourite smell either.
Since that time, however, I have to admit that this perfume has completely grown on me: in fact, at the moment in spring/summer time, it's my absolute favourite scent that makes me feel classy. I just don't get watermelons as much, I suppose. The classy square bottle, cute pale pink colour, and reminiscences of 'being somewhere in a summer meadow doing something outdoorsy' (very ME), have ensured that this is a very desirable perfume - at least for me. My boyfriend doesn't like it, but I feel someone has to stand up for this pink, fruity, summery delight!
A very pedestrian/artificially sweet/cotton candy-like take from Ralph Lauren that deserves mention only because of its
pretty bottle. The juice inside is, unfortunately, deathly sweet -- like fruit compote sprinkled with saccharine. It has nice
enough clean opening notes with a forgettable drydown. For women who think themselves stylish, but are not.
Don't bother with this one.
When I first saw this perfume, the pink juice made me think that it had a powder base to it (It does not). LS is a clean/ fresh floral on me (I do not smell the fruit notes at all). It is very nice for the office/ daytime because it is not overpowering. This one seems to last an hour or two and then it wears close to the skin. It is a bit ordinary and simple, but it smells very good...It is perfect when you want to wear a light/ clean fragrance.
Got this as a gift when it came out, but never really wore it.
It's just too sweet for me. The scent has this light, sticky, lingering, sweetness that I find unappealing because of how it reminds me of the gummi bear bodysplash I wore when I was twelve.
It's a good teenager fragrance, but I think that smelling of candy as an adult woman is giving off the wrong message. For me anyway.
Update: Unable to even promote this srcubber to my bathroom shelf, I tried to make some use of it by spraying it on my dog when he came inside after rolling in something smelly. The result was the incongruous miasma of a sketchy summer carnival - cotton candy layered over swampy wet dog. Not recommended.

Clean, fresh and light but ordinary.
