It has a fresh, watery, and musky scent.
It is a floral-muguet type of perfume.
To me there is an annoying sharp scent.
Bought it based on a card sample that I had, but was disappointed that it didn't smell as I though it would.
and I have to agree with (blood orange) that is smells better as a shampoo or shower gel not as a perfume.
This got me loads of compliments from my mother and her friends, none from men. Obviously appeals to women more educated in fragrance than the younger audience so for a very reasonable outlay it's a soft womanly scent. I didn't get the fruit with my skin but freesia in full bloom settling to a slightly powdery floral musk
It took me a year to resolutely decide to make this fragrance my own. It has a very fleshy scent to it, due to the peach and musk. Crudely, I might even go so far as to say it smells like skin in the heat of "the moment" (**wink wink**).
I don't quite smell the aqueous nature of this fragrance as I do the musk. It does have a youthful quality to it. No one has ever commented on my fragrance, good or bad. I know I wear this only for me and not to impress or attract others. I think it's simply an acquired taste.
Was it the "sparkling green freshness" (note scare quotes...) or perhaps the leafy water hyacinth amalgmated to pears and white freesia? All I know is that the moment I made the fated decision to don Gwen Stefani L-LAMB in a store today, it became clear that I had made a very serious mistake. Instant headache in a bottle! My poor little neurons were pulsating in pain until I finally made my way out of the store and into the abundant fresh air of the parking lot, where I hyperventilated for several minutes in order to flush out all of my suffering, suffocating cells.
Never again will I subject myself to such torture. I tested a few of the Harajuku Lovers collection a while back, which were so banal and BHT-laden that I could only come up with haiku reviews, but L is positively toxic on my skin. Gwen Stefani now numbers among my select list of celebrity "perfumers" to scrupulously avoid.
The bottle should have been the biggest warning sign of all. Cheap plastic huge cap, the very antithesis of fondle-worthy, a complete and utter aesthetic mess. Honestly, it brought back memories of a yuppie couple I once knew who had silverware that was so cheap and flimsy and battered and ugly that it looked as though it might have been lifted from a hospital cafeteria. But I digress...
Bad bottle, worse contents. Thank goodness I set my skepticism about induction temporarily to one side and had the good sense not to buy this one blind. Oh my, I must be suffering memory loss from today's poisoning: I have yet to describe the smell of this "perfume"! Think BEYOND PARADISE plus molten plastic and insecticide.
I bought the shower gel as a gift for my housemate last year and she absolutely loved it. I have fond memories of the bathroom smelling like L after she'd used it. I decided to try the perfume the other day and I was hoping that it would smell like the shower gel did only a lot softer.
I was a little disappointed to find out that it did smell exactly the same as the shower gel. It's a nice, pleasant scent, (don't get me wrong), but it stands out to me as a fragrance that smells better as a shampoo or body wash, not as a perfume.
