Vanilla burning but not burnt. A lit candle in a fragrance, sweet can be girly, can be homey and cozy, could read elegant if the occasion called for it, but never truly austere or stately. A perfume for any occasion for a woman just wanting to be in her own bubble of warmth. This does not read sweet to me as in sugar or even in a grown up gourmand (like La Vie Est Belle) it is a cloud of scented candles with sweet warm and even some kind of spice notes that wear close to the skin. Oddly there is a strawberry note, but it is more like a strawberry impression, it does not smell fruity to me, on me in the slightest nor berry-like nor again, sugar sweet, any of the qualities a strawberry note or essence may bring to a fragrance normally. I would recommend and repurchase for a flight of fancy from my woodsy spicy loves and my dark rose and wood fragrances and sensuous fig ones I so typically and will always go for on default. This is unique for something that may seem on the surface so generic and crowd-pleasing and common place in type. Not immature at all too me like a Pink Sugar or even a Flowerbomb or most of the fragrances from Bath and Body Works or even Juicy Couture.

I have to say that I agree 100% with the reviewer, Cyncerity, below me. It's playful yet sophisticated, it's innocent but alluring. This scent is so sweet and comforting but not sickly sweet, cloying, or childish like some perfumes tend to be. It's a very feminine scent that's creamy and smooth. Light enough to wear as an everyday fragrance but still noticeable. Also it lasts quite awhile as I was still getting whiffs of it 12 hours later. It smells like strawberry shortcake to me, and I think the pink butterflies on the box are perfect because that's how I feel when I wear this, light, free, and girly. I haven't gravitated to sweet scents as of lately, and this was a blind buy, but I'm so glad I got this.

Will always have a special place in my heart even if I outgrow it. When I first smelled it from the bottle, it reminded me of my childhood because it was so sweet, like Asian soft drinks/candy. It's quite harsh upon initial spray, but on the skin, it blooms into something so feminine, romantic, sensual, warm, comforting, and dreamy. To me, it's creamy strawberries, vanilla, and a bit of mixed florals and woods. Itís sweet and innocent, yet complex, unique, beautiful and alluring. Despite its sweetness, I feel like you could wear it at any age. At the very end it smells like a fluffy marshmallow vanilla cookie. I prefer the EDT to EDP because EDT is airy and pretty with way better sillage. EDP is too closed, syrupy sweet, and reminds me of a cute thing rather than a lady. Lasts 12+ hours on me.

Not a perfume I usually gravitate towards. I tend to avoid sweet powdery vanilla fragrances. This one is different. It's warm and creamy. When someone hugs you while wearing this, it'll leave the faintest most haunting scent on you. I always get asked what I'm wearing when I wear this. The vanilla that people detect is actually almond. There is no vanilla in this scent.

while the bottle is beautiful the fragrance is not. I find it to be just plain strange. A blend of things that don't blend. It smells overly sweet with a weird chemical aftertaste

I've been interested in this perfume for nearly 10 years now (you read that right), and even though I'm a serial perfume hoarder it was only a few months ago that I finally decided to purchase this. Oh how I wish I'd done it sooner! I've never enjoyed gourmand scents or anything with more than a trace of vanilla, which is why it took me so long to buy this. But Butterfly is exactly what I needed in my collection. It's creamy vanilla and berries but doesn't smell foody at all to my nose. It's sweet, innocent and sexy all at the same time. The lasting power is incredible (I can still detect it on my clothes days after) and the drydown smells just like the initial spray. I know I'll be getting a lot of use out of this during the fall and winter months.

Flagrantly artifical fruit mixed with slightly powdery vanilla and woods. Super sweet and jejune. Not a fan of this at all-- sorry folks!

This fragrance leans sweet on some, but on me it smeels just like roses and vanilla. Not what I was looking for. Luckily I had a sample to try this out. I will not purchase.

Hanae Mori Butterfly EDT is one of the greatest fruitys *ever*, in my humble opinion. Just really really delicious. And generally speaking, fruity perfumes are not my favorite class at all -- neither fruitys nor florals (esp white florals). I usually favor orientals, gourmands, woody vanillas, florientals, and musks.However, fruity with something that smells like *vanilla*? Now that's a different story and what shoves it onto my "Like" list. I much prefer fruit-&-vanilla over just-plain-fruit perfumes.Launched in 1995, here are the notes, from parfumo.net:Top Notes: Wild strawberry, Blackberry, Black currant, Blueberry Heart Notes: Bulgarian rose, Ylang-ylang, Jasmine, French peony Base Notes: Rosewood, Almond wood, Sandalwood, French cedar My first thought is always "mango" when I smell Butterfly -- a rich, delicious "mango and vanilla". In spite of that note list, this smells to me kind of like a Mai Tai without the rum -- or some other fruity tropical Carribean cocktail without the alcohol. Or maybe V8 Fusion Peach-Mango with some vanilla added, strawberry, and maybe a hint of coconut.Maybe it's the "rosewood" and "almond wood" notes above that come across as vanilla to my nose? -- because it definitely smells vanillic to me (one of my favorite notes of all time and the reason why I like this perfume). And I just can't get over my "mango" impression either, even though it's not on that note list.To my nose, it's a very delicious mango-vanilla perfume, with maybe some other fruits mixed in there, like strawberry, tangerine -- maybe even a hint of coconut. Palm trees are swaying, bongos are playing, you're kicking back in Tahiti, and the *delicious* scent of Hanae Mori Butterfly wafts in the breeze. A summery, islandy, yummy fruit-smoothie of a perfume. Not sheer & light -- it's a little dense and rich smelling, even in EDT. I've owned both EDT and EDP -- and in my humble opinion, the EDT is much better. EDP verges on syrupy -- it's too condensed and too sweet. But EDT is perfect, to me -- still richly delicious -- plenty strong enough -- and it lasts well.ADDENDUM 8/5/15: I bumped into a three-year-old 8/7/12 article on nbcnews.com entitled "The Today Talent's Favorite Summer Perfumes" -- you can look it up. Keep in mind this was 3 years ago. Natalie Morales' was Penhaligon's Artemisia, Hoda Kotb's was Trish McEvoy #3, Today Style Editor Bobbie Thomas' was Perfect Veil EDP, Jill Martin's was Kai perfume oil, Sara Haines' was Fresh Sugar Lemon body lotion, Star Jones' was Razac hand and body lotion -- and Kathie Lee Gifford's was Hanae Mori Butterfly (it's the EDT pictured and linked), who said in the article that it was "fresh and clean" and "it makes you happy".

Sitting in misty, foggy woods, drinking a strawberry milkshake and eating salted almonds. That pretty much sums up Hanae Mori for me. Oh, donít forget the black eyeliner. Thatís a definite wear. And listening to drum circle music. This is one perfume that takes you places.Itís a perfume Iíve learned not to overspray. Itís there when I think itís not. Itís vanilla wrapped with a nutty feel but not a traditional vanilla. This vanilla is smooth, creamy, mellow, powdery, fruity and musky. Itís moonlit nights, eyeliner, jazz music and funky shoes. Itís mood perfume.There is a sophistication and maturity to Hanae Mori that can be pulled off appropriately by the right woman if sheís flaunting herself naturally. Itís a sensual perfume that begs to be worn by a Seductress. The incense of this fragrance wafts around her innocently yet captures others. Thereís a smokiness to it thatís not heavy at all but there, just light enough to mesmerize.Hanae Mori is a thick perfume if applied too heavily. It will come back with the heat of your skin and tickle your nose when you least expect it. Although its thickness can be somewhat off-putting to some, that quality gives it a unique, almost viscous feel. Thatís its muskiness drawing you in. Itís a heavy and thick musk with a sweetness that wraps around the vanilla with a gauzy scarf. This is a season-less perfume with mild floral undertones that can be worn anywhere, anytime, as long as you donít go heavy on the spritzing finger.There are four fruits in the top notes to tantalize you. Blueberry, blackberry, strawberry and black currant work together with the middle and base notes to create the vanilla which is actually not listed. Wearing Hanae Mori you definitely feel this is a vanilla-based perfume.Hanae Mori is considered a linear perfume, meaning that altho there are three layers of notes, the perfume stays the same throughout its run. It just stays beautiful throughout its many hours of runtime.The day I picked this up, I was on my way to visit my grandson. Naturally, I spritzed some on as soon as I bought it. I really didnít notice it while I was with him, thinking I had sprayed it very lightly earlier. When I returned home, I received a text from my daughter asking me what perfume her son was now wearing. I didnít realize so little would transfer to him. Thatís how strong Hanae Mori really is.Hanae Mori doesnít announce herself but youíll remember she was there. Kind of like a butterfly. She leaves a lasting impression.The notes for Hanae Mori pink butterfly are:Top Notes: Black Currant, Wild Strawberry, Blackberry, Blueberry.Middle Notes: Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Rose, Peony.Base Notes: Sandalwood, Virginia Cedar, Brazilian Rosewood, Almond Tree.
