I bought this perfume a few summers ago on promotion at Shoppers for 20 bucks for the 30 ml. I was not that blown away by it then, and neither am I now. It's OK, definitely better than Noa Perle but I would not list it among my favourites. The notes for Scarlett include tea leaves, citrus, pear, jasmine, orange blossom, honeysuckle, white musk, lavender honey and sandalwood .
Top notes: Tea leaves, Honeysuckle
Heart notes: Jasmine, Honey of Provence
Bottom notes: Orange tree flower, Sandalwood, Musk.
Scarlett was designed by O. Cresp, who was behind the masterpiece Angel. I can see a vivacious girl wearing this, full of energy and vibrant.
I think Scarlett is best suited for the under 30 crowd, in general, though. I will not let that stop me from wearing this once in a long while when the mood hits, and if you like it, and are over 30, neither should you. The bottle is darling, and reminds me of an elaborately yet tastefully decorated, high end, white scalloped edged wedding cake.
I like the fact that Scarlett's white top provides an opaque covering for the juice, thus keeping it safe from sunlight, which would make it turn "off". I only give it a three because this combination of notes just don't feel like me.

This is cute, very fruity and overall a bit sharp
I had it and found it a bit too much , maybe boring, without depth
too much of something but still cute
I can't really define it , just that you have to be real young to want to wear it much.
I can see my 14 year old niece liking it, as for I like warmer scents with more complexity!

Like many other reviewers I've read, the first thing that caught my attention about this fragrance was its gorgeous, almost luxurious packaging - it couldn't be more delicate and recalls some Art Nouveau designs, like René Lalique's.
I was afraid it could be too sweet and powdery for my taste, following the trend of other Cacharel fragrances (I really can't stand Amor Amor and Lou Lou), so I took it easy and did not let myself get carried away with the first impression. But as it happens with so many other passions, love affairs with perfumes are unpredictable and sometimes lead to something bigger: what started as mere curiosity, then evolved to a pleasant surprise (a floral and fruity blend, so refreshing!) and a couple of spritzes later I found myself completely hooked by that smell, I HAD to own it! Of course, as the price is not exactly a bargain, it took me several months to be able to take it home, but it's mine at last. Both because of how much it costed and the scent family it belongs to (jasmine-honeysuckle, a bit overpowering), I plan to use it very sparingly. But that's how we should treat the products we treasure the most, isn't it?

Not really for the over 25s, as it's fairly unimaginative and weak.
However, perfect present for the under 20 crowd. Light, flowery, a nice honey-ish smell. Awful staying power, disappears after 2-3 hours. Completely inoffensive and touching in its naivety.

I tought this perfume was a big floral scent, tooo floral for me, but i think if you liked it you would enjoy. The reason i say that its because when i sprayed this in the store i was just amazed buy the packing, hnestly is like the most amazing bottle in the world, but ok i kinda like it but i tought it was just a normal floral, not like all the others perfume, but is like flora by gucci, it does nothing for me. But there was some kind of bitter-ness in this, a good one that i could stop smelling but it wasnt enough to make me buy it of even like it... wish i liked, it would be marvelous in my vanity

I bought this perfume based solely on the notes and marketing campaign. I had never smelled it and bought it despite its mediocre reputation. I'm so glad I didn't listen to others. I love it. The jasmine and honeysuckle are the most prominent notes to me, so it is a very floral, sweet perfume. However I think the jasmine gives it a little bit of a deepness. If you're not a fan of floral scents, this is obviously not the way to go. It smells as lovely as it looks (have you seen the adorable packaging?!) I wish I had bought it sooner instead of hesitating for so long.

I love this perfume. I love the floral jasmine scent. It is not for some people, it is on the opposite scale from something sexy or strong. It is very feminine and soft smelling. I love florals and citrus so it works well for me.

I bought this on a recent trip to Spain and after about a month of searching for a new scent i was about to give upwhen i found this, i was attracted at first to the beautiful container it come in and i love the scent! I'm normally attracted to more oriental type scents normally i hate florals but the mix of sweet pear and orange blossom with hints of musk it's girly and feminine.

A lot of work and effort was put into making this fragrance. The bottle is divine, so cute and perfect for any woman's vanity. The notes in this perfume are described as: jasmine, orange blossom, honeysuckle, citruses, tea leaves, pear, white musk and sandalwood. The scent combination sounded like the perfect vintage medley to represent Scarlet from Gone in the Wind and Scarlett Johansson, the actress. The fragrance was a Cacheral inspiration to create a timeless fragrance for strong independent women who are ahead of their time.
The idea is sweet, but not as overwhelmingly sweet as this perfume. The fragrance does not smell artificial, however it is very overwhelming at first spritz. I smell like a musky flower bomb with a sprinkle of baby powder. It's strong, the scents collide with each other rather than intermingle. Instead of a quant fox trot- the scents interact like those in a drunken rave. However, the fragrance does dim after a few hours and softens, you can make out the jasmine, honeysuckle, musk and sandalwood the most. Its nice and pleasant. However the pleasure affects are only experienced after the dry down, than after about 3 hours it disappears entirely.
Overall, the perfume only lasts about 6 hours on my skin before fading into a watery musk, that also disappears shortly after. It is a unique scent- a definite take it or leave it fragrance that will enchant some or bore others. Had the scent been more complex and unfurled slowly, it may have been really wonderful, but it was just not for me.

I have a bit of a love/ hate relationship with this perfume. I recentley tried it at the airport and fell in love with it. I then noticed that it was being given as a free gift if I subscribed to my favourite magazine so thats how I got it. However in the airport it was the EDT I tried and got the EDP free and I just find the EDP too overpowering. The scent is quite unique, like nothing I've tried before and it lasts all day on my skin (which probably means that it actually doesn't suit me) . Some days I love it then some days I can't stand the smell of it.

I simply love this perfume and frankly don't know why there are so many bad reviews on here.
It is a perfume I would wear on a date or when going out as it has great staying power in spite of being such a light fragrance.
Actually it's not the typical perfume I would like. It's too girly and too flowery (I'm more the Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Hugo Boss-Type), but it's just the right mix for me to love it.
It's all in who wears it though. My sister hates it out of the bottle, but on me she really likes it. And I have gotten a lot of compliments when wearing it.
Usually the perfumes I like have really ugly bottles too. This is one of the first that has a pretty one. I think the design is gorgeous and that the product itself is coral-pinkish makes it even better.
As with all good perfumes one will have to invest a bit of money in this one. I got the medium bottle for cheap in a set for around 50 Euros I think. It is a bit of money, but there are only very very very few cheaper perfumes which don't scream hooker imo.

My inspiration for writing this is one of my favourite books-turned-films, ‘Perfume: Story of a Murderer’ which was shown recently on the BBC.
Yes, the film is about the scentless apprentice who murders women to then coat them in fat to preserve their scent, but I can’t help but find this film very personally seductive. I have always had strong reactions and feelings when I’ve used my nose.
Since I was a child, I’ve had a love for perfume and a certain perfume house named Cacharel. I remained fairly loyal to them except for a couple of affairs: namely a Givency powdery rose scent and an embarrassing incident lasting but a ¼ bottle of Nina Ricci’s ‘Les Belles de Ricci’ at 15 years old. (Please don’t hold it against me. I was young and foolish.)
My own daughters wear Cacharel at 9 and 11 years of age and I also would continue to do so... had they provided something for me to enjoy. As much as I love Anais Anais, it’s tired, as is all the “summer” “lite” and off-shoots they seem happy to allow out. I am so disappointed. All that Cacharel has done lately are sickly sweet florals... just like everyone else.
I bought a bottle of Scarlett by Cacharel recently over the internet seduced by the promise of very Anais Anais top notes with an addition of a honey twist and of course the fact that one of it’s creators was Olivier Cresp (my absolute favourite perfumer. Brains behind many gems like Thierry Mugler’s ‘Angel’ amongst others). Usually I only wear orientals now I am older and self-assured enough to wear them, but I was curious. I was very upset to find yet another fragrance designed for the under 21s. Terrible. It does have that Anais Anais freshness about it at very best, but at worst smells of cheap white motel soap. The soap that makes your hands feel like snake skin and that cracks when dried out. Not even my pre-teen daughters will touch it.
Doesn’t anyone make fragrance for women these days??? Why is everything aimed at the women and girls who have no money to spend and there is nothing for us women who are willing to pay just that little extra for something we will fall in love with and wear religiously for the rest of our days? The best fragrance Cacharel ever made was timeless, seductive, alluring and mysterious... and discontinued a few short years after it was released with absolutely no warning. This perfume also just happened to be The One for me. The one I was going to wear forever. A beautiful young womanly rosy oriental with downright “dirty” tones. I always had compliments whenever I wore this. I have now only 2 ½ bottles of this stunning elixir left and have paid triple it was originally priced at just for my fix. (As you have probably noticed, I haven’t included the name of this scent as I am being very peevish and plan to keep whatever is left for myself).
A note to Cacharel: You are losing us. Stop with this little girl floral bullshit and start making perfume for women. Real ones.You make it and we will come buy it. Better yet, bring back the Ambergris and amaretto concoction and I shall buy it by the vat.
Anyone want the rest of my “Scarlett”? No? I think I will use it as an insect/cat/person repellent then.

I loooooooove this scent. So pleasant. I tried it on in the store several times before purchasing. I even got my mother to buy it.
The bottle is so beautiful. It really defines for me what a perfume package should be. So romantic, such a pretty artifact.
I am no perfume connoisseur, but to me, this scent is sweet but mellow, not overpowering or "synthetic."
I love the way it wears on my skin and that's all that matters.
So while I can't speak to all the notes and all that, I think this is perfume is lovely. My nose likes. My brain likes.

This just arrived at my local SDM so I was extremely curious to test it today. This fragrance is a very fruity, super synthetic watered-down floral. Reminds me alot of Michael Kors' Hawaii. Overall, an inoffensive, mildly pleasant scent, but quite unremarkable. Beautiful packaging. It truly saddens me that Cacharel masterpieces (such as Gloria) have been discontinued in favour of this type of perfume, which really doesn't succeed in differentiating itself from the army of fruity florals out there.

Tested SCARLETT this afternoon and now have a killer headache. The fragrance itself is a jumble of too-sweet fruit and artifical florals on my skin. I read on another site that this is targeted to under 21's, so maybe I'm just past it...
The staying power is very good and the bottle is lovely.
Scent notes: jasmine, orange blossom, honeysuckle, citruses, tea leaves, pear, white musk and sandalwood.

I went to the stores again today just to sample this fragrance as I was so disappointed yesterday. Have been waiting for this one all summer. I was awaiting an Anais Anais master-piece type fragrance as so many perfume bloggers/magazines hinted that it would be an old school type formula. Also those who were chosen to developed this fragrance are veteran perfumers. It could be that this is such a work of genious that it has passed me by: however the only aspect of this fragrance which reminded me of Anais is the distinctive packaging.
This is suppose to be a white floral geared towards the teenage and young adult age group. Scarlette rightfully reflects this however I am not sure if it achieved this goal. I think it would be unfair to say that young adults can only appreciate very simple fragrances without depth or complication! Time will tell.
Upon application all I could smell was alcohol; Actually it blew me away. I know this is EDT which is not my favorite form of fragrance but the smell of alcohol in this fragrance is overpoweringly strong. After getting over the alcohol blast I was able to enjoy a bit of the orange and pear note. A very youthful touch indeed. After allowing quite some time for the drydown, musk and honeycuckle faintly appears in the background. It is quite soapy.
I can see this fragrance being loved by those who love soapy scents, light fragrances or those who are not bothered by strong alcohol. This will not be one for everyone. It is more a "kuddlemuddle" either you like it or you don't. I do not think it is the type of fragrance which would grow on anyone as time goes by. By the way, one woman in a perfumarie did tell me that this is not selling as well as they though it would. Her exact words "the advertising has not really started yet. We hope when it fully begins, this moves a bit faster". I can imagine her fears as this is the center piece in every perfumarie. Tons of inventory.
I actually give this a 2.5 and will consider getting it sometime later on when it hits the sale shelf just for the bottle. Very special indeed. I can imagine they spent quite some time designing this aspect of the fragrance.
The notes include tea leaves, citrus, pear, jasmine, orange blossom, honeysuckle, white musk, lavender honey and sandalwood .

Finally a fragrance by cacharel again which doesn`t smell like plastic and commercial.
I`ve been waiting for this to happen since anais anais (which I respect but my skin doesn`t like so much) I tried a sample of this today so I can`t comment on the packaging (but the pictures of it look beautiful)
This is now my favourite fragrance by cacharel. It is a very romantic, easy to wear floral scent and one of the most beautiful honeysuckle scents I`ve ever smelled.
I can also detect a not too sweet orange blossom (orange blossoms often blossom a bit too heavy and sweet on me, this doesn`t) and jasmine. A little musk prevents it from becoming too bloomy and the drydown reveals a light note of sandalwood.
This is definitely fbw.
Lasting power: About 5 hours on me then I respritzed and I didn`t mind since I love all of its stages a lot. :-)
Top notes: tea leaves, honeysuckle
heart notes: Jasmine, honey of provence
bottom notes: Orange tree flower, sandalwood, musk
