I SO wanted to like this scent. I was absolutely in love with Kate Spade's original fragrance, but they discontinued it and replaced it with Twirl. I purchased it as part of a gift set and although I don't regret it, I definitely do not love it either. The biggest problem with this scent is that it has no personality. It smells like a conglomeration of about 10 other similar, uninspired scents on the market and has nothing to make it stand out in any way shape or form. It doesn't smell "bad" per se, it just doesn't knock my sock off. A definite disappointment--I wish they'd bring back the original Kate Spade and discontinue this overpriced boring scent.

I must confess that I am often attracted to trying a new sent because of how pretty the bottle is. That was definitely the case with Kate Spade Twirl, I mean, come on, the bottle is like a chilhood fantasy, absolutely magical! Sadly the pretty bottle is in my opinion the best thing about this sent. As one of my first swaps on MUA, I arranged a swap for a rollerball of Twirl because I had been wanting to try it for so long. Coincidentally I received a sample of it as a freebie in another swap before I received the rollerball, and I realized I dislike the sent! Sadface. :( It is a potent, old fashioned smelling sent with few discernable notes for me, overwhelming to the point of nausea. I prefer lighter fruity, floral, amber and vanilla notes, so I wish I had asked someone to discribe this fragrance to me before trying it. Oh well, at least I'm not out a chunk of cash for buying the fullsize, although at least I would have the pretty bottle to decorate my vanity, lol. I have learned my lesson and will now sample fragrances whenever possible before buying or swapping, and I rec you do the same, especially before buying this sent!

I received samples of both this and Boyfriend (ick) and I didn't even finish the vial. It's not bad, but it isn't something I'm going to run out and buy. I like fruit and flower scents so this just wasn't for me.

Got a sample of this. Smells ok, but nothing near justifying the price of it. Nothing spectular or special IMO either.

I was hoping that Twirl was just Kate Spade's original perfume undergoing a new campaign with a new name and bottle. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Twirl smells like something I would find at Walmart. The original scent was so glamorous and feminine; Twirl must be the deformed sibling that was kept hidden away in the basement until recently and it may be wise for it to return there.

I wanted to like this; the bottle is so pretty. I got a sample size. At first spritz it smelled nice, then it quickly dried down to something that gave me really bad headache. It's so pungent I has to scrub it off because I couldn't stand it.

Watermelon hairspray with a bitter note that might be the black current. Fades to generic, chemical modern musk, not to its benefit. Wow, this so didn't work for me.

I was excited about this fragrance when it came as a sample. Put it on, the boyfriend LOVED it (would not stop sniffing my neck and arms), but within minutes I had a headache. A couple of days later I thought I would try again due to the favorable respose from the bf, punding headache again, and I rarely get headaches from a scent. Oh well, at least I did not spend any money on it!

Got a sample from Sephora, certainly smelled better in bottle and on the little tester card. Once on me it smelled like some sort of windex or floor cleaner I have used for cleaning before! Yuck, Yuck Yuck, Definite pass for me on this one!

I bought this because I could not put down the little piece of paper that the scent was spritzed onto when I was at the fragrance counters. On the paper, it was floral and apple (what I wanted DKNY Be Delicious green to be), though the initial blast of alcohol is very strong and needs time to dissipate. When I got the bottle home and tried it, it seemed to be less fruity. I actually am catching whiffs of muskiness, almost sandalwood. I plan on keeping the bottle, but I'm not buying it again. It actually layers quite nicely with DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom, which I own and love for it's sweet simplicity, because it gives it an extra layer of complexity.
Edit: Okay, took away lippies...as the day wore on, it smelled more and more like generic perfume, and it gave me a slight headache. I can't get it off my wrist, and I have to put something over it just to soften it. I am returning this. I think the top notes are not matched very well with the base notes. They do not fade into each other well at all.
