This Ralph really rocks! That is, if you want a swirl of sweet, neon bright, almost pulpy fruit on top a thickish, coconutty and milky base. Like Kysona below says, it's not a sophisticated smell but great holiay fun. It makes me think of summer holiday resorts, a bit of swimming pool, a bit of beach volley and summer disco music, all those fun things that you can do because you are on holiday. Not very romantic, creative or particularly feminine. Still, good quality in its own category. Medium sillage and lasting power on my skin. Unfortunately, it is darn expensive in my country so I won't be buying a bottle.
The best of all the Ralphs IMHO. Again, synthetic, subtlety and sophistication "don't live here anymore", but it's upbeat and partymood-inducing, so for a relaxed beach holiday I would grab a bottle of that without even thinking.
I LOVE THIS. In my opinion unless you think about lasting power, you can't really go wrong with EDT's they'll never be too strong.
I think my nose senses are out of whack though... I smell NO coconut. It is definitely tropical, but what I smell is mango and lime if anything. I have to bring my atomizer with me for this one, it's true that the scent doesn't last long, but it's better than most EDT's and some perfumes (e.g Viva la Juicy), I see this lasting for at least 6 hours.
This is totally one I could see myself wearing on a daily basis during the summer.
In love....totally in love...I feel sooo young when wearing this & I may be on the older side of what is acceptable with this fragrance, but it is so warm & yummy that I just do not care. I never run out of this, not for several years just won't allow that to happen. The honey thinks this scent is fab as well! During winter months when I am longing for the sun I can spritz this on & instantly it brings back a bit of vacation with palm trees & pina coladas, anything that amazing deserves a 5 lippie any day!
Love it! tropical fruits and coconut. It has a warmer base than most fruity scents. I wish it were stronger and longer lasting though.
I am in love with this scent. But my asthma is not :( looks like I'll just have to make sure I have my inhaler, cause this scent is the bomb
What an amazing floral, fruity, and water-like scent. When I spray this in the air I instantly think of summer. Although it is fall/winter now I still wear it on special occasions. This perfume is lightly scented and soft enough that it can be worn everyday. My favorite way to wear this is to spray it on my scarves and gloves. When I'm extra daring I'll mist it in my hair. Buy this scent, you will not be disappointed.
'Ralph Rocks' is a nice Summery fruity scent. It has a tropical feel, but unlike many of the other reviewers, I can't detect ANY coconut at all! To me, it smells like oranges, pineapple and passionfruit. This is a very sweet scent and can get a little nauseating. To me, the opening resembles Escada's 'Taj Sunset', but the fruity notes don't last as well and is quickly dominated by a musky dry-down. I got mine reduced on sale, but wouldn't have paid full-price especially because it has weak staying power. Overall, I think this best suits those who like very sweet scents. If not, you may be disappointed.
packaging: 5/5! it looks so bright and cheerful and summery, as well as being very functional.
price: i got it for extremely cheap at a discount chemist so look for good deals everyone - otherwise it is medium-priced.
lasting power: it's an eau de toilette and a summer fragrance at that, so not toooo impressive... standard
scent: i agree with a lot of the creamy coconut/orange comments. that's pretty much the only way i can describe it. at first it's more tangy and citrusy but as it develops, a creamier coconut undertone becomes more noticable. in my opinion, it's even a little masculine (one of those fresh, citrusy guy colognes like hermes d'orange verte) but only in my opinion.
overall: i got it for cheap so no complaints and the scent is pretty good. not gonna rave about this, but no complaints either :)
I LOVE this perfume!! It's my essential summer scent, I always get so many compliments when wearing it! It's the definition of a fun, flirty, summery perfume. I'm extremely sad they discontinued this perfume, but you can still purchase it in some stores, I would highly recommend to anyone to purchase this perfume while you still can!
