This is a very blah fragrance that has no lasting power whatsoever.
Despite its glam bottle and my initial expectations, this isn’t a fruity, ‘sunshine in a bottle’ mimosa on me. It’s a muted, non-waxy, slightly green, naturalistic mimosa that makes me think of lemongrass, too. I like its serene simplicity, pastel green connotations and sheerness, but I think it could do with better sillage and lasting power. I can imagine wearing this during a holiday on my own, on a barren, pebbly, shrubby beach or when I'm in the garden barefoot - very early in the morning before the heat strikes. It would also be good for yoga days - a simple pleasantness that makes me think of body mists. This is what I imagine Demeter's Mimosa would smell like, but I don't have access to it, so I don't know:( Unfortunately, Yellow Diamond is pretty expensive for what it is in my country, but I can see myself owning a partial bottle one day - and I hope it comes without the horrendous lid:)
Nice smell but has no lasting power at all, seriously 1 hr at most, I certainly expected more from Versace :(
This is a pure, transparent and airy fragrance, sparkling and intense , while still being feminine. The notes feature lemon, pear sorbet, freesia, mimosa and water lily. I enjoy this very much, I use the deodorant and the eau de toilette natural spray when I don't feel like wearing actual perfume, like after the gym. It makes me feel clean and positive.
Nice, happy, girly scent. Good staying power. Thumbs up.
I bought the roller ball version of this for $20 dollars at Sephora, and I love it. It's a very bright and uplifting scent, but it's subtle at the same time. A sunny fragrance for gray days. I only wish it lasted longer on me.
I bought the rollerball of this fragrance after feeling like I liked it upon misting it on my wrists at Sephora. I actually really like it a lot now that I've used it a couple of times. Like the previous reviewer mentioned, this fragrance makes me happy :) It reminds me of sunflowers...its yellow for one but its fragrance is so uplifting and kind of has an awakening effect. It is a little sharp but has a beautiful, totally tolerable citrus body with some floral notes. I normally hate lemon scents since they end up smelling like pinesol to me but this didnt come across as a lemon opening note to me, it was more of a bright orange-lemon with a strong floral topnote. It has more dimension than a pure fruit or a pure floral fragrance. Per Versace's website, the notes are as follows: lemon, bergamot, neroli, pear sorbet; middle notes of orange blossom, freesia, mimosa, water lily, and drydown of amber, musk and palo santo wood. To me it smells like a bright, cheerful, confident career woman in a nice suit on a beautiful summer day. It is definitely not for the meek or mild hearted, but it does give a great positive feeling. I love this fragrance's lightheartedness if thats possible haha, yet its depth with combining fruit floral and wood/musk (probably my favorite drydown). I think that if any perfume should have been named Happy it would be this and not Clinique's Happy as that doesnt really invoke any feelings in me :p.
Costs $51 for the 1 oz EDP, $69 for the 1.7 oz EDP, $89 for the 3 oz EDP and $20 for the rollerball (sephora website prices). To me, totally reasonable for a high end brand perfume. Love it. Will totally purchase the bigger bottle. For reference, perfumes I have liked in the past: Bvlgari pour femme EDP, Dior Miss Cherie, Chanel Chance and Coco Mademoiselle, Prada Infusion d Iris, Prada EDP, Narcisco Rodriguez for her EDP, Balenciaga, Pucci, Bottega Veneta.
o. m. g! i absolutely love this fragrance. the first spray reminds me of lemons and sunlight. i can really smell the orange among the heart notes, and the dry down transports me to a meadow of flowers under a yellow summer sun, in a cloudless sky! it lasts 12 hours on me.
purchased the captivators perfume sampler from sephora. this one one of the 4 perfumes in the box. very sharp and sour on application. no lasting power and totally boring. i expected more from versace!
