I can't believe people like this perfume.
It's just really...unbearable!! So strong and cloying!!!
Something like an immature girl wanting to appear sexy.
I got it as a present and I never use it. Even my mum doesn't use it.

Such a pretty fragrance very feminine floral and springy. I don't however own this anymore I used to when I was a bit younger it really suited me probably still would but I am more into food gourmand smells now like angel etc this was a nice perfume as part of me growing up though would never buy it again because the staying power wasn't good at all but this was a very pretty perfume which I found pleasant to wear.

'Darling' is a nice scent for everyday wear. It's nothing special though, just easy to wear around people. The scent is a fruity floral and is quite synthetically sweet. It smells a bit like passionfruit to me at first, but the sweetness mellows out quite quickly and I'm left with a floral-like scent on my skin afterwards. The lasting strength is average and will need to touch-up throughout the day like most perfumes.

I got this as a sweet 16th, I'm still in school and don't wear perfume often, but when I do...this is one of my go-to choices (I have about 5 bottles..all less than half used.-.-) Its much stronger than my fcuk her, so I save it for special occasions as I prefer soft scents. However the lollipop- and floral-overwhelm happens to really suit me, and reminds me of my personality when I spray it on (and dance) instead of sniff the bottle. I often get compliments from my friends that I smell good. However I prefer to wear it for special occasions only, as I find wearing it everyday= much too overbearing. The bottle itself is gorgeous...most original one I've seen so far as I'm a fan of rainbows and the "rainbow-oil-spill" effect- goes good on pink glass:) cannot say I dig the lid being plastic though, albeit I do like it's shape.

After seeing all the poor reviews on here I just had to stand up for what is really my HG everyday perfume.
I'm a big Kylie fan so when this came out I had to try it even though I usually loathe celeb fragrances; surprisingly I fell in love with it and now years later I'm just finishing my 8 or 9th bottle and ordering my next. Fresia, Lily, Sandlewood and Vanilla some of my my favourite scents and I often find myself sniffing at my wrists to enjoy the scent!
This is a very light, candy-ish floral and I wear it all year round as my everyday work perfume. Perhaps it just suits my chemistry more than others but I find it to be unique on me and the scent last for hours. There's nothing like waking up in the morning and smelling this still on my wrists... I frequently get complimented on my perfume and love the looks of surprise when I tell people what I'm wearing!
I'm a migraine sufferer and perfumes can trigger major reactions in me, never once have I had a problem with this - I just adore it. Sadly Sweet Darling doesn't fair well on me at all, but the original cannot be beaten.
My other favourite perfumes for 'taste' comparison: Dior - Dulce Vita, Dior - Hypnotic Poison, Versace - V/S, Kim Kardashian - kk, Vivienne Westwood - Naughty Alice

DARLING is an uncomplicated blend of lollipop-sweet fruity notes and unidentifiable florals which never fully develop on my skin.
I can only identify the passion fruit in the top note [which can become sickly in warmer weather], the floral notes could be anything; the top notes dominate DARLING, and then the fragrance dies along with the fruit, leaving a faint scent of sandelwood, which reminds me of my brother's favourite after shave.
Scent notes; Passion fruit, freesia, lychee, lily, bonoria, sandalwood, amberwood and vanilla.
There's not much to say; DARLING is safe, flat and dull. The staying power is awful - it burns out within one hour. The bottle looks nice in pictures, but is cheap in real life.
It'd make an OK present for Kylie fans, as it's so mild that there is nothing for wearers to find disagreeable about it.

I received "Darling" as a gift and I really don't like it - I think it smells awful on me. It's not a strong fragrance but there is something in it that makes me nauseous. I would never purchase this product myself.

I love this, it's probably my favourite perfume. It's nice and sweet but not overwhelmingly so. It's also a bit floral and fruity... just lovely, I love it!
The bottle... it's supposed to look like Kylie's smile isn't it? Ha ha... ha. It's not like any smile I've ever seen. It could be prettier but I'm not going to cry over it.

I love this perfume!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's my everyday fragrance. Cheap and Cheerful. Don't understand how anyone doesn't like it!
update: still loving it - smells fantastic - i love it so much!

Lillies, fresias, passion fruit, litchi and of course; vanilla. A feminine fragrance with a touch of Spring :)

This perfume is best left for winter, it can be too sickly in the summer. It's really sweet, which I love, but if you don't like sweet perfume then seriously, don't buy this.
It lasted long on me, probably about 7-9 hours, which I think is pretty good. I love the packaging, it's really cute but glamorous and its sort of retro looking. It's really easy to use and looks great on your dressing table. I'd be happy wearing this perfume during the day, and at night time for a party.
I'm so rubbish at describing smells, but I'll have a go. It's a little musky, I'd say more fruity than floral and super sweet.

This product is quite nice. I loved it at first but i decided i prefer my other perfumes over it.

horrible.....smells terrible and fades quickly.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
As below, this IS lovely. For about half an hour and then it rapidly fades to nothing.

~This is my HG perfume......I remeber looking at it in Shoppers last Summer when it was on display and I just fell in love :) People always ask me what I'm wearing, even yesterday while I was getting a new Cell phone the girl said she had never smelled anything so gorgeous, when I told her it was by Kylie she was so surpirsed ( I'm not surprised, there are a ton of fragrance snobs out there)......The smell is warm/sensual/ & musky with a hint of sweetness (probably from fruit or vanilla)...this is the only perfume I have ever purchased twice and will keep re-purchasing....its beautiful and I just LOVE it :) ~

I gave it a fair try but just didn't like this one, it really lacked dimension overall. It smells like a bargain shampoo. I will pass on this one and won't even recommend it. No sale.

Initial notes were very sweet and lolly like. But after a 10 minutes the top note evaporated and the perfume changed into a strange and revolting type of mens aftershave, nothing sweet or feminine at all. My man didn't like it either, even though we both like "Sweet Darling". Its odd that they were so different on me.
I asked the Sales lady in the department store which sells better, Darling or Sweet Darling and she said that Sweet Darling outsells Darling by 4 to 1, so maybe others have had the same experience?

I'm surprised by all the bad reviews because I really like this perfume myself! As most reviewers have already remarked, this is very sweet and if you don't like sweet sweet perfume you're gonna hate this. I'm not very good at describing smells but I'd say this is a very feminine, non-offensive, floral/fruity sweet smell. It's not my favourite and I wouldn't really wear this for nights out or for a date. It's a good daytime perfume when you just wanna smell nice or when you wanna spray something on after a shower before going to bed. My boyfriend likes it and I bet most guys would find this quite pleasant.

Really wanted to like this a lot however it doesn't do it for me. It does smell nice and I enjoy using it, but the scent seems to strong when I use it. The staying power is alright and it has a cute bottle <3

This is not as bad as some reviewers said. It's sweet scented, has lasting power on my skin and it's quite cheap for a perfume released by a celebrity. I hated Kylie Minogue's singing to be honest until I found this perfume and tried it on my skin. Not so much fruity as floral ..I would re-purchase .
