Not sure what is up with the great peach debate on the reviews here. I would not have picked up a peach scent, but different perfumes smell differently to and on different people. Although I WILL say that citrus is the top note in many of the websites I have seen the description of this. So, peach/citrus might be one and the same to some. Personally I do not detect peach, as to me, peach is very sweet, and this is more of a sweet yet clean, fresh scent.

That all said about the peach debate, here is my 2-cents on this fragrance. It is soft. I think it is actually kind of a classic timeless feminine without being 'too girly'. HOWEVER the big downside for me, it wears off REALLY fast. Given the price of this, I feel it should not dissipate within less than 2 hours.

This is just an okay scent for me. It vaguely reminds me of something my mother would have worn when I was growing it kind of has a comforting aspect for me, as I lost my mother last year.

Not a strong scent, it is a light feminine 'spring' type of scent. Not bad, but not something I would re-purchase; mainly because of how fast the scent disappears and I feel that there are other similar scents out there that last longer and/or are not the kind of steep price tag.

But this was a Christmas gift and I am not unhappy with it. Just not a favorite, other than vaguely reminding me of my mom. Cute bottle, though! I like the design of the bottle, simple yet cute and kind of fun!!--Without being too 'designer' or 'trendy' or too fancy.

All in all it is pleasant enough, even if it does wear off quickly .But I would not (re?) purchase.

Starts out a typical fruity floral. But within 10 minutes of putting it on I smell nothing but the Cedar. Which smells REALLY BAD on me.
I'm not blaming the fragrance, for all I know it could simply be the way it works in my body chemistry.
Also found it doesn't last long at all.

I love it. I'm not smelling peaches. Smells girly, fresh, joyful and kinda sophisticated too, somehow.

The previous reviewer went on and on about the peach scent yet if you look at all of the notes listed, peach is not lusted-anywhere. Now, having said that, I understand that perfumes do smell different to different people. This is a big bright floral to my nose. Joyous and sweet. Very spring like to me. It's very reminiscent of Borghese's Il Bacio which I used to adore. This is a youthful floral to me and I walked around the store sniffing my arm and my pattern is when I do that, a purchase isn't far behind.

So what's in a name? Does "Fabulous" really mean fabulous? For some maybe, but this rendition of perfume by Isaac Mizrahi just isn't so perfectly pleasing after all. Perhaps it's a tad too fabulously peachy.
Fabulous is an awfully sweet peachy scent. I like smelling it but I could never own it nor could I ever wear it again after taking this one for a test drive around the block a few days. Each time I've worn it, its scent overwhelms me. It's cloyingly sweet and it hugs me with an artificial sweetness that I don't mind if I'm alone (for the test drive), but I seriously wondered if it would be annoying to others that would smell it on me.
It's a perfume that smacks you in the face with its fruit pie overload. I feel as if I'm sitting in the pie tent at a summer church carnival, the temperatures have risen at mid-day to high humidity over 105 degrees, they've closed the flaps of the tents and the flies are buzzing. It's sweltering and all I can smell are the hundreds of fresh-baked peach and assorted fruit pies around me. Which is ok, it's a good smell, it's just a sensory overload for more than an hour. and unfortunately, Fabulous last for six hours straight. My luck.
Adorable pink fluid, pink polka dots and pink atomizer set the tone for this overly delicious cutesy just fab concoction. Buttery popcorn does make an entrance and dance around mid-way but does not truly introduce itself as a finer tuberose. As a floral-fruity, I'd say without a doubt, you're definitely in an orchard rather than at a flower show.
Best worn lightly and any time of the year you want to be a honey of a peach.
Top Notes: Bergamot, Mandarin Orange, Nectarine.
Middle Notes: Tuberose, Peony, Freesia, Jasmine.
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Cedar, Vanilla.
