I smelled it once and I was hooked. Bought it, loved it for a couple of days, but then... I don't know. It just started to give me headaches. I used to feel so confident wearing this, but now I barely use it. I smell too much of grapefruit and kiwi. I guess kiwi was the reason why I bought it, but now when the scent develops I hate it. It's not a unique smell anymore, seems like every other girl wears it!! And that's maybe another reason why it just sits on my shelf.

I'm surprised I like this perfume, since it's so fruity. (Normally I love clean, green scents). I was given a sample of this a while ago, and whenever I wore it people would sniff and say "What is that?? You smell amazing" It makes kind of a light first impession but the scent is actually quite strong. I used it more & more often and since I liked it so much as a little bottle, I asked for a big one for my birthday. I'm so glad I did!
Fruity fragrances are somehow not really in, are they? Anyone remember "Deci-Dela" by Nina Ricci? Apricots and figs, oh, delicious (not sure I would like it now, though).
"L'Imperatrice" is really yummy.... and yet not too much like food...
It's sparkly & celebratory like a fruity punch, but still with a bit of smokey pepper in it, and some citrus so it doesn't cloy. My favourite note is the raisiny, wine-skin element. I find it a smooth, but very satisfying daily scent.
And: the bottle is gorgeous.
Excellent birthday score.

This is my signature scent. The downside about this is it doesnt stay long on me. Bottle is very simple yet a bit pricey. Its got fruity scent and i think it is best for day wear.

I'm a fruity fragrance lover but I don't love overly sweet scents. I live in Florida so anything too sweet or warm won't work out. This is fresh in a way that reminds me of other ozonic fragrances that tend to be favorites as well. If you are looking for a grown up version of a fruity body splash this is it. It became one of my favorites and people always compliment me when I wear it. If you live somewhere hot I would give it a try.
Packaging: Simple and sturdy. I carry it around with me a lot and I have yet to see a scratch.
Lasting power: On me it lasts all day unless I go for a swim.

Im not going to write a long review on this because it just smelt like shower gel to me a pleasant shower gel as the assistant at the fragrance counter described it too- I like sweet smelling fragrances- this is one of those very fruity FRESH and floral without being powdery- also makes a lovely gift for the teens - for me it smells like shampoo nice shampoo fruity but it does not smell like a scent- which is good but then I can just buy a strong smelling shower gel at a fraction of the cost- this gives a just came out of the shower freshness- perfect for the summer and for people who lke this scent- can smell like a good shower gel- nothing distinctive- excellent price. Elegant clean packaging. Someone asked me what shampoo i used - smells like Herbal Essences lol!!!
If you like to smell clean and fruity like you came out of the shower then this is for you...
smells like GUava on me...no dimensions...

Surprisingly, I don't like this. It's mainly a kiwi and watermelon fragrance, but I don't find it especially watery. It's sweeter than I was expecting, with an unpleasant wine accord (perhaps given by the sharpness of the rhubarb mixed with the overripe fruit), which I'm surprised doesn't get mentioned in many of the reviews. I'm reminded of a wine cooler when I smell this, the kind of aroma you try to conceal in middle school. Instead of being a fresh fruit salad, this one has been sitting out in the heat a bit too long.

Simple bottle with a really pretty-smelling perfume. Have gotten compliments while wearing this one - it's a scent I don't think would be offensive to anyone, and I can't imagine ever getting sick of it. Definitely one of my favorites, one of the few perfumes I would repurchase.

Usually, ozonic scents don't work with my chemistry, but, I love this one.
The watermelon is the most promient note on my skin, along with the musk, lemon, rhubarb and a bit of musk.
What a great summer fragrance. It has great sillage with just one spray and it seems to last quite awhile on the skin too.
I'm glad I bought this one. It's really refreshing.

Deciding between this and Guerlain's Idylle....really liked how it was sweet and fruity but also kind of warm on the dry-down, until my sister said it smelt like the Body Shop's mango body wash initially....wanted something with a bit more depth. I actually really like the packaging, it looks simple and elegant to me....very impressed by the size of the bottle, although this may simply be making up for the lack of staying power....faded considerably within the first one to two hours for me, though I am used to EDPs....trying to move from from Miss Dior Cherie to something a little more mature....think I may have found it with this one!
