3 different Realities, which one do I have, right? ;-) LOL, sorry but I could not resist a small pun there!
Seriously, I think this is the Realities I have. I got this as the other buy one get one free item in the perfume package from Burlington CF. I won't repeat how can it be a get one free when the package of 2 cost $3 more than buying just one small sampler bottle!
I am not liking it that much. The one in the pink box is described as, A floral fragrance that blends gardenia, pink peony, violet and two varieties of orchids (magic lantern orchid, mirror orchid). The velvety base notes reveal vanilla, sensuous woods and musks. These are usually scents that I love. The small bottle I have is designed like the pink bottle so I have to think it is the same?
It does not blend well with my body though. It does seem to last a long time! Why is it like that??? Find a scent you really think stinks and it will stay with you all dang day & into the night!!!
I do not find this one to stink though, just using that to make a point.
Maybe I will change my mind, but for now, glad I only have a small .05 oz. bottle.

I actually like this fragrance, and I'm talking about the newer version. I guess you'd describe it as a fruity-floral, but it smells so different than a lot of fragrances out there, and I think it is quite unique. I'd describe it as grown-up but not stodgy, office-appropriate, casual scent. I'm wearing a sample today and I quite like it. I think it blends with my chemistry quite well. I doubt it would ever become my favorite, but if I came across it at TJ Maxx, I would definitely at least consider buying it.

This is for the new version in the plain bottle, not the original Realities in the stacking-cubes bottle (which I never smelled). I got this in a sampler with other Realities/Curve scents, and I really don't like it. It's bland, insipid, and has no depth or interest at all, like a deodorant tampon or cheap body lotion. A soft, inoffensive, unspecific floral as generic as they come.

I found this at TJ MAXX and it is the original realites from the 90's
This is such a nice fragrance not too heavy. It is a floral type but has a spicy tone to it. This is much better than the new version. It is hard to find the original though. The staying power is great and I get compliments all the time. So nice as a change from the sweet smelling scents. The drydown is very clean smelling.

This smells just like floral and vanilla nothing more lasting power is ok and alot of people assume this is realities by liz claiborne it is not it is by realities company so don't get it confused but I sampled the liz claiborne version of realities and I don't know how anyone would like that over this one!

I was so excited to see a huge bottle for $16 at tj maxx although the bottle looked totally different than it did when I wore it at 18...10 years ago!
How disappointing that the smell is completely different too! SO boring, blah floral that does'nt last...though that is a good thing in this case!
Back in the 90's it came in a cube frosted glass bottle and it smelled GOOD. Very crisp but not overly so. I got compliments consistantly.
This new one is just horrible...on me at least.
I gave it 2 instead of 1 lippie since, although it is so utterly boring it doesnt smell BAD.

This is a boring scent that has no staying power and no appeal... very disappointing for a Liz Claiborne product.

Realities used to be packaged in an orange box (I'm talking early 90s), and the bottle was a set of frosted glass cubes piled on top of each other with a teal or blue neck I think? The current scent is entirely different from the first, but they both share a weird spicy odor about them--almost doughy to my nose. The one I'm reviewing is the new one and edp form. Pink juice and a rather boring bottle, though the shape of the top is nice to touch. The first spray is unique and different and that odd note doesn't bother me so much. The drydown is duller and loses the floral top notes so it ends up more of a spicy musk skinscent I'd say. Got this .5 oz mini for 42 cents so I don't really care that it doesn't float my boat.

I used to wear this a long time ago because I like the smell. It has a fresh flowery smell to it, like your not trying to smell good which is what I like. It is light and fresh. I used to spray a little in my hair and it worked well because of the fresh scent.

A boring, unoriginal fragrance with poor staying power.

I used to wear this during college and still have a bottle left after my Dad went a little nuts and bought me 2 150 ml bottles 10 years ago!! Too bad the bottle started leaking so I may have to toss it soon. I still love this perfume but don't find myself using it so much only because I have so many others. This used to be my signature scent and I only spray sparingly bc it is quite sharp and stays all day, especially on my clothes. I got compliments all the time wearing this scent so holds fond memories for me :D

This is plain nasty. The newer version with the pink liquid is much better. Too strong of a peach note. Cute packaging though.

I do not like this perfume. It has a weird scent to it, and it smells like old perfume.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
Love this. Reminds me of the early 90s when it first came out. It smelled so unusual, yet I always got compliments when I wore it. Wish I had it again.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Dry Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I really like this perfume cause its not too strong, and smells sophicticated, to some extent, but isn't too "old smelling" for teenagers to wear. I gave it a four because of the lasting power, which is barely any. I have recieved many compliments on it and it doesn't, to me, smell like alot of others, its more original than other popular perfumes.

I love the shape of the bottle and the scent is nice, different but I get tired of it after a while. I'd call it a spicy/sharp floral.
Top note : Mandarin, Apricot, Cassis, Pineapple
Middle note : Cyclamen, Rose, Violet, Carnation
Base note : Heliotrope, Vanilla, Cedar, Sandal
The cedar and woods and vanilla in it also make it suitable for winter. Some find it too sharp, but I don't. Has pretty good lasting power.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
a pretty soft scent ,nice for summer.not a strong scent!

Has it really been ten years since this debuted on the market? My mom is a Liz Claiborne fan, but I have never shared her enthusiasm. This perfume is a very clean, crisp smelling item; someone said it well, it is reminiscent of a spa with fresh flowers and crisp linens. I like this, but would never buy it, being a perfume junkie I have so many other favorites that I would buy again.
