I find my self surprisingly reaching for this scent so often. My hand snakes past the Chanel 5, the Guelains, Feminite du bois, Un Jardin Sur Le Nil (blah blah) because like another reviewer has mentioned sometime you do not want a statement frag just one that is pleasant and makes you fell "up".
Ardenbeauty serves this purpose for me. It is clean, fresh uncomplicated and easy floral. Perfect for the hot and humid weather in Sydney at this time of the year.Also in this part of the woods it is relatively unknown
And the price???
I honestly don't think I have ever worn such an inexpensive frag ($12 for 100ml!!!!). IMO it t does not smell "cheap" ( though some pricey fags do but that is another story;-)

When this fragrance came out, I was hesitant to try it, watching Catherine Zeta-Jones on advertissement on magazines, tv .. Caught my attention the beautiful simple bottle! Well after years trying to get it (it was so expensive years ago) I say what the hell and go to EA counter tested the frag and I came out with a full giftset to layer myself in this beauty! It's a clean, sharp/floral, subtle feminine! The fragrance works nice with my body chemistry making it smell divine, not complex I think they pick up the right notes to make it work together pretty good. Beautiful bottle the red stopper adds a classy touch! Nice sillage/ longevity even I can't smelled myself but it seems people could noticed yet, they always complimented me about the fragrance, and like some previous reviewers said smells so much expensive (now this is sold at a cheap price). This is one of my favorites from Elizabeth Arden parfums! Love it!

I remember getting a small bottle of this when i was a teenager from a relative and liking this then i kinda forgot all about it up until recently when a 100ml bottle of this was on special at a priceline store,i have fallen in love with this all over again it is a very pretty fresh floral scent which gets alot of compliments from people and think its underated compared to the overhyped fragrances that dont smell very nice, i would reccomend this fragrance to women who like fresh sweet scents and is now one of my favourites

Scored a 1.7 oz. bottle at Ross's yesterday for about $9. I just needed to treat myself, or so I felt due to having a heart monitor installed inside my chest the day before. ;-) I had read on the reviews here that this was a fragrance that smells very expensive but cost little so I grabbed it.
It is very nice! It is not a complex type scent at all but it is still pleasant. I really enjoy fragrances that smell good right from the first spray and this is one of those kind. Right from the start it strikes a note of 'oh yeah that smells really good to me'. I wish it was a tab bit stronger of a scent for my aging nose does not smell things as good as it use to ;-) but I am sure others are very pleased that it is more quiet of a fragrance.
Ingredients are listed as, top notes are orris, bergamot and rice flower; middle notes are orchid, ginger, rhubarb and lotus; base notes are sandalwood, amber and musk. It is called a green floral.
I did have to repeat spray this after about 4 hours so I thought about taking off one lippie for that, although others probably could still smell it, so I left it at a 5. The bottle is simple but the red top adds some classic beauty to it.
I think this is one of the E.A. scents that is underrated actually. It is up there with Beautiful & Beautiful Love just not quite as strong. I will be using this often this spring & summer. I am very glad I decided to treat myself and give this Beauty a try.

My mum has this bottle in her bathroom, so I discovered it there. It smelled really pretty in the bottle. Sprayed it on me, and it smells a bit like an exotic floral. I didn't like how it smelt after the fragrance died down. A bit spicy and woody. Not something I would usually go for. I know that fragrances are subjective to personal preferences, so I guess this one didn't work too well for me. Not bad if your looking for a cheap light fragrance though.

I love it! Purchased the full bottle after falling in love with the samples. I reserve it for special occassions and evening wear since I'm so afraid to waste drops of this precious fluid. Though described as woody by many a prominent perfume website, I find the scent feminine, sensual, and oriental; intoxicating. I consider this the best smelling perfume I have ever smelled. I can't get enough of this stuff.

I am reviewing the body lotion for PROVOCATIVE WOMAN. www.fragrantica.com puts this in the "oriental floral" family of scents. I like it a lot. It is not too heavy but has some staying power. I'm not so good at describing scents, so there is a description of oriental and floral scents here: http://tinyurl.com/mzer7d

Maybe I had a bad bottle, as others seem to have loved this scent - but it is the only perfume I have actually had to wash off after spritzing. Terrible peppery, melon-y scent that was really overpowering. Awful.

Arden Beauty is ok it wears off quick. Smells green but fresh and expensive.Some kind of exotic floral. I like this one.Can be bought at Marshalls and Tj Maxx for 14.99 for a 3.3 oz! Nice fragrance overall but then again I like most fragrances by EA.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Top notes very nice, but overall lacking personality. Purchased it at Marshall's for a song ($10!) but I was unimpressed overall. It just seemed like nothing special at all. I liked it when I first sprayed it but then... well... nothing. I can see why it was retired: it has no personality. :-(

I really like it so much beacuse the fragrance makes me feel like a lady. It's an elegant scent but it fades quickly. I use an EDP, the result is the same. I will buy it again anyway just because of the feeling it gives me.

I've been using this perfume every day for the past month, since i brought it on vacation with me and its all i have with me. I'm not impressed by it at all. The bottle is really elegant and feminine, but the perfume itself, a bland floral with no staying power, and a horridly sharp citrussy edge. definitely not a very sexy perfume. better than nothing, but i wouldn't buy it again.

I came across this randomly in a department store, not intending to purchase anything. I thought the bottle was gorgeous and found the scent to be wonderful. (My boyfriend, who normally doesn't offer an opionion on what perfume I wear LOVES this!) I love the crisp, clean, almost spicy smell (no hint of musk here!) If you enjoy softer, floral scents, you may not like this perfume (as other reviews have stated, this fragrance is "sharp.") The scent lasts from morning to night and is suitable for both day and evening wear. Unfortunately, this scent has been discontinued (which usually happens to the fragrances I love the most!)

I got this fragrance today as a birthday present. My mother gave it to me. I've beeen wearing it for a couple of hours now. Do I like it? Yeah, I guess. It smells clean, fresh, classy. I think it's the kind of fragrance that you can wear everyday. I also think this would work fine in places/situations where you have to interact with lots of people because it's not overwhelming. The bottle is also nice and classy. Will it become a favorite for me? No, I don't think so. I'm more into dark, misterious, sensual and exotic fragrances, and this one has none of those qualities. My husband loves it though, but he likes clean, shampoo-smelling fragrances the most.

I also think Arden Beauty is very sharp; it is too sharp, in fact, for my tastes. It's vibrant, and kind of perfumey. There is nothing really special about it to me. I also think it has a more mature bent to it than what I am looking for. Notice, I did not say "old lady". One of my aunts, for example, loves these type of fragrances. (She's a vibrant, active woman.) I'll be mailing this to her for enjoyment.

I found this fragrance too sharp, stays sharp, drys-down sharp - like I said - SHARP... Not a sexy scent, not delicious in any way, not tempting to the senses - but it rather smells clean and fresh-if you're tired this would pick you up!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
ArdenBeauty is what you would call a "pleasant" fragrance. Not jaw droppingly divine in the way Thierry Mugler's Angel is(I'm ducking for cover here as I know many will disagree with me) nor is it striking, unusual, haunting and stunning in the way Guerlain Mitsouko is.
It's not sexy,voluptuos and enveloping the way Agent Provocateur is nor even a bit smokily sexy yet warm and familar the way LouLou by Parfums Cacherel is.
Yet all the same and for all my intense love of "statement" perfumes this is no Britney Spears "Curious or Gucci Rush 2. It doesn't smell of soap and the top note which I believe is the "living rice flower"(is it just me or do they just make this stuff up?)gives it enough of a contrast with the floral/ fresh base to make this perfume far more interesting in a restrained Chanel No19 sort of a way except of course that No19 is a masterpiece in restrained elegance and this one is definately an undergraduate student. A clever talented undergraduate student granted but this scent doesn't rock my world intensely or anything. It doesn't make me love it or hate it with passion. But it does intrigue me a little, arouses my interest way more than most of the generic soapy or fruity smelling clones they are currently churning out of late.
To my mind this one does have a slight oriental kick to it but not in the way of traditional "orientals" if I had to put this one in to a category then I would label it a light marine floriental if that makes any sense at all.
I cannot imagine this one possibly offending anyone.
I got the 50 ml Eau De Parfum spray and while I like it fine the bottle will probably last me for ages so I have to say I probably wouldn't repurchase this one again when it does finally run out as it hasn't bowled me over. The packaging is beautiful though.

It's not bad, but it's not waw either. Unnoticeable, nothing special.
