A lovely scent at a lovely price. Ciara is a spicy oriental that rivals many of the newer more expensive fragrances on the market. The overall impression is of vanilla mixed with herbaceous spices. I bought this solely based on positive reviews. Having never smelled it before, I expected it to be very strong, but once it settles on the skin it is surprisingly subtle. This drugstore buy is a little gem. Don't let snobbery keep you from enjoying its charms.

I REALLY wanted to love this one. Seemed right up my alley since I favor stronger scents that are spicy/earthy/musky. I found the 100% strength bottle at drugstore.com and have been wearing it for the past two weeks.
This is an incredible value, you'll spent less than $20 and get a fragrance that lasts over 8 hours. It's unique for sure, I haven't smelled it on anyone in years and upon first spritz it brought back memories of my aunt who used to wear it. She had a style all her own...rebel biker chick mixed with mystical earth goddess...this definitely suits someone who isn't afraid of being different. It's earthy yet clean smelling and has a bit of fruit note (raspberry) but eventually does dry down powdery on my skin. I liked to use BBW Sun-Ripened Raspberry body wash and lotion to make it a bit more fruity because I really don't like powdery scents on my skin.
This doesn't scream sexy to me personally but I am sure with the right skin chemistry, it smells awesome! It's complex and unique but not a good match for me. A solid fragrance and one well worth trying but I won't repurchase.

Just want to echo the reviews that have stated this smells like Bal a Versailles.
I have a vintage cologne Bal a Versailles and the 100% strength Revlon made Ciara smells about 90-95% the same. It smells MORE like the vintage Bal a Versailles than the CURRENT EdT of Bal a Versailles! The current EdT of Bal a Versailles is heavily leathery on me, with a bit of plastic doll head mixed with sweet powder. But Ciara is amazingly close to the vintage Bal a Versailles with the sweetness, light(passing) plastic doll head, powder, musk, and incense. It's amazing because I thought I would need to go through evilbay to get my vintage Bal a Versaille fix. But I can get a 2.3 oz bottle of the 100% strength Ciara locally for under $20.
It's a GREAT bargain for the $$ if you like sweet, musky, incensey fragrances. Will definitely repurchase.

This is a perfume that I have smelled on other women and liked and always ask what they are wearing. When their response is Ciara, I am always surprised. I always thought Ciara was a very strong, cheap perfume. I also then read reviews here and see that it has a high rating. So I finally bought some in the 80 strength. This has to be applied very lightly. One spray is enough. It is a strong, sweet fragrance. At first, I don't like it when I put it on, but then it dries down to a softer, wearable scent. It makes me feel confident when I wear it. I don't like the packaging, the cap looks very cheap. I bought it at Walmart and the price is very reasonable compared to my other perfumes. I will rotate this with my other perfumes. It is not signature but it is still very nice.

used to wear in mid eighties in high school for cool winter nights in germany. rediscovered and started wearing again after 11 years of wearing another fragrance that reminds me of my horrible ex husband. this fragrance has happy memories for me. bottom line, it is either you love it or hate it kind of fragrance. strong, unlike anything on the market. for bold, daring, and assertive women only. the antithesis of fruity or flowery, but somehow has a sweet undertone. i love this for fall and winter. will attempt this summer as well. get lots of compliments but spray once or twice after shower, it is strong. loving it, and hope i can find another gift set this christmas ( saves money) heard that 200 strenght is the best, unable to find it.

Ciara has been my signature scent for about 20 years - since I was 16 years old. It never ceases to amaze me when I am in public and some man comes up to me and begs to know what I'm wearing (Once I had to write it down and where to buy it for one guy who wanted to get this for his wife). I wear lighter things for summer and during the day, but for cooler times of year and at night, this is my go-to perfume. Drives hubby crazy, too!!

This was my mother's signature perfume. It smelled amazing on her but with my body chemistry it's just not the Ciara of my memories. It's musky and very strong, sickeningly amber (if that makes sense?). Like other reviewers have said, it's definitely not a floral, youthful scent. I think I'll keep a bottle around just for the sake of remembrance and display, but I won't be using it. To me, this was and always will be my mother's perfume, the scent will always mean that to me, it's definitely not mine.

I adore and collect fragrances of the 1970s. I've loved and worn Ciara on and off since 1985. I am wearing it today. It is an unusually cool, damp, rainy, gloomy day in the desert of the Canadian Pacific Northwest and it's the perfect fragrance to wear for a walk in the rain. I caught whiffs of raspberry, incense, and amber as I walked and it was just so comforting. I coincidentally showered with The Body Shop Raspberry Ripple shower gel this morning and it really brings forth the raspberry note in Ciara. I only apply one spritz to my wrist and touch it to the other wrist and behind both ears. Love the bottle. Doesn't break the bank. I will always have a bottle of this.

Ciara is going to be my signature scent. I just began student teaching and my mentor smelled sooooo very good the first day I was with her. One fo the first things I said to her was, "You smell so good! What is it you're wearing?" She couldn't remember but the next day, she said, "Ciara." I bought a $24 bottle in the 80% strength from Wal-Mart that night. OMG! The kids tell me all the time how good I smell. That is honestly the best compliment since kids are so honest. They're first graders, BTW. I love my kids and I'm so happy they think my Ciara smells so good!!!
Ciara comes in 80%, 100% and 200% strengths.
