I was initially provided with free samles of the EDT from Sephora. I loved it and kept returning to Sephora for more samples. Eventually, I purchased a bottle of the EDP off ebay. What strikes me as strange is the EDT seems to have a better saying power v. the EDP. The scent is also unusual, but, in all likelihood, this is why I love it.
So, someone sent me a sample of the EDT and I loved it. I bought the EDP because perfume never lasts all day on me--probably my oily skin! I actually like the way the EDT smells on me a little bit better, but I'm still in love with this scent. Men like it and my fiance said that the bathroom "smelled like pancakes" after I was through getting ready this morning. I can only guess it was the Mori because he's never said that before. The bottle is a little too girly/fragile to me; I prefer bold, modern packaging like Alexander McQueen or Viktor and Rolf, but that's really the only drawback IMO.However, I still gave this a 4 on packaging quality because the quality is not really in question, I just don't like the top-heavy design.
Hanae Mori Butterfly is fast becoming my signature perfume. I absolutely adore it to bits. I only have the EDP now, but I plan to purchase the parfum in the future. To me, the fragrance epitomizes a certain young sensuality, sweetness, and prettiness with a dash of intoxicating sophistication. It mixes well with my body chemistry, transforming into a wonderful melange of almond, praline, berries, and bulgarian rose with a certain sensual sweet spiciness that emerges as the day wears on. Layering with the HM lotion intensifies the lasting power threefold. I can imagine how HM would not work on all body chemistries, as the notes can come off too sweet and cloying on some. However, this is a winner for me, and I can see myself repurchasing over and over again.
I'm not sure if I tested Hanae Mori or Hanae Mori Butterfly so I'll just leave a review here... The scent was definately "me" but at the same time, it was way too sweet and cloying. Did anyone else think this smelled like lychees?
lovely fragrance even though I usually hate sweet scents. I only like the edp version and I use very little. this smells incredible on me. I guess it's a chemistry thing. this is a great winter fragrance but I think this is one of those fragrances that only work for some people.
This gave me an instant headache and the smell lasted all day :( I could not wait to wash it off. It's really sweet and suffocating to my nose.
LOVE THIS! I can't get over that this has been around since 1996! Where the heck have I been? If it where not for MUA I may have never of reached for this, and how sad that would of been for me. I think this may be my HG! I love how yummy but not to yummy smelling this. It also stays true to its scent. If your like me and things don't mix well with you, try it. You can always return it ;)
I have the EDP blue butterfly & the pink butterfly purfum and they are both great. This scent lasts and you don't have to use alot.
I don't love the glass cap, I am just waiting to drop it.
pretty floral sweet pink perfume...smells like strawberries,vanilla and powder to me...makes me think of those sweet strawberry shortcake dolls that i love...strawberry cupcakes with vanilla frosting or some sugar cookies...pretty sweet perfume...makes me feel like a princess when i spray some on...
I love this scent. It's the perfect blend of sweetness and a 'creaminess.' I've found that the EDP is a LOT better than the EDT. It smells the best after about 20 minutes. I think the reason I love it so much is that my best friend wears this. Too bad, or else I'd be wearing it.
I am not a fan of sweet and fruity scents, and I was not looking forward to trying this one when it was given to me as a sample. I'll withhold my comments on the hideousness of the scent, therefore, since I can't comment on the quality of a fragrance that might as well have been designed solely to irritate me. I'll just throw in the one relevant thing I've learned from this experience: It. Does. Not. Wash. Off. Period. Not ever. My head is pounding, and I hate my own skin now...
