Live by Jennifer Lopez is a cliché because it is so sweetly fruity flowery on the top and so sweetly flowery fruity in the middle. There’s no damper on the sweetness. The middle accord says red current, which should pull down the sweetness, but it doesn’t. Then, get a load of the base: caramel, tonka, vanilla and sandalwood. Would you believe that I don’t smell the sandalwood? Still, I wouldn’t blame anyone for liking it, because it isn’t synthetic or pre adolescent. I don’t think its sillage is excessive, and it has excellent longevity. If only it weren’t so darn sweetly fruity flowery.
First spritz of Live gives me a tropical fruity cocktail note - which I attribute to the combo of pineapple & citrus. It almost immediately gives way to the floral heart ~ which comes across soapy (the violet/peony combo). At this point I'm somewhat regretful about spraying my wrist with this fruity/floral. After about 30 minutes or so the vibrancy of Live gently calms and I no longer find it offensive...in fact, I'm almost liking it. The sandalwood rescues this blend...although I won't be wearing it again.
A bit too sweet for my scent, but I could stand, although sometimes scents like thes start to smell 'sweaty' after a while... . Not really fresh, rather warm en fruity
I love this fragrance! I ALWYA, get at least one compliment when i wear this. It's a very nice sweet fresh scent. IT makes me feel clean when i put it on
This is sweet and slightly floral, I don't smell much violet. Not bad for a fruity/floral mix. I'm not big on these types of scents, but this one is better than the usual. I'm not smelling much of the basenotes now, but will hopefully smell them as the hours go on.
