♥ I absolutely LOVE Ici so much I just added a picture( pronounced E- C, meaning " here" in French). It has a very unique smell. At first its very gourmand. It smells like orange and cherry creme soda in the best way with a tinge of cocoa, mimosa and musk but it is not cloying. The heart is a nice vanilla. The sillage is nice because it is not too strong. It's also long lasting and the bottle is a cute sundae with a cherry on top, The juice has a faint tinge of pink. It smells alot like Fire and Ice by Revlon, but I like Ici better. It is one of my top favorites. It has a fresh smell to it. Soft and sweet.

I got a 1oz bottle on Ebay for around 20.00 and I am so happy with this purchase. It is such a beautiful fragrance. Coty out-did themselves with this one.

I will be going back for more ♥

Love love love love ici! If they ever discontinue this I will be SO sad because this fragrances is SO GOOD. Its ambery, musky, floral and sweet! Its casual and sexy, great for all year day or night. I have been wearing this about 5ish years and dont plan on stopping. I only have a few fragrances that I truely LOVE and this is definitely in my top five, on parr with some of my designer frags!

Although, packaging gets a 2/5 because really, ugly bottle lol. I wish they packaged it in a nicer bottle!

Ici, IMO, isn't so much a gourmand as it is a sophisticated, ambery floral fragrance on a background of chocolate. Freshly sprayed, it smells of lots of amber and musk, lots of orchid and mimosa (amongst other fresh floral notes), breezy citrus, a hint of spice, and an undertone of chocolate. There is a candied sweetness to Ici, but at this stage, it is separate from the note of cocoa -- which is more dry, unsweetened powdered cocoa than it is chocolate candy bar.

Hours later, after most of the strong note of amber has worn off, is when I really love this fragrance. The dry cocoa has turned into mouth-watering Hershey's Chocolates Kisses, with hints of allspice and the remaining traces of fresh florals... sort of like receiving a gift of a bouquet of fresh flowers and a small heart of chocolate bonbons.

Shortly after Angel heralded the move towards gourmand fragrances, Coty released Ici. I remember smelling a fragrance strip of this in a magazine and living it but was perplexed by the fragrance noted. Floral and candyish? Hmm, odd I thought and yuck when I bought it and sprayed it on me. A big blast of something floralish invaded my nose and I was taken aback but later it morphed into something wonderful. It's the cocoa note that came out and I understood what this "gourmand" business was all about. Definitely in the same vein as Angel but I found it to be more like Hollywood Pink. I'm so glad I rediscovered this gem this past winter. The silage is incredible. It's cozy but not too dessert like which makes it very wearable to me.

Love this scent in the winter. Beautiful. I have gotten many compliments on this. The only perfume I have used right until the bottle is completely empty as I often get tired of scents before the bottle is even half empty. I've also gone through many bottles as well and I rarely repurchase scents as I like to switch often.

I had this perfume many years ago and bought it again not too long ago off of ebay. It is an interesting scent - it is almost minty at first, then dries down to a sweet vanilla musk scent with a sophisticated edge. It is definitely not too sweet and is very wearable for daytime. I haven't smelled anything quite like this one.

I have been wearing this scent for too many years to count! I love it. I always get a ton of compliments on it. It is very sweet smelling. I love that it's so cheap but it doesnt' smell cheap. I'm not sure if it has been discontinued or not. It is very difficult to find.

Would I buy this again? Absolutely. This has become my signature fragrance. I've gone through three bottles of it already. I love it, my husband adores it, even my kids think I smell nice when I wear this.


I can see where some might think it has a "foody" smell, considering the mid-notes feature caramel, creme brulee, and cocoa, but it is sooooooooo much more than a foody scent. It has lovely, sparkly floral notes to open it, living magnolia, rain forest orchids, muguet, mimosa, peony, orris and hyacinth; then come the deliciously smooth and buttery-creamy mid-notes that I mentioned earlier; and it gradually ends with basenotes of amber, musk and exotic woods. So smooth, so yummy, so gorgeous, so different than anything else I've tried. I love how this starts out as a lovely floral and gradually morphs itself into something sensual and deep and darned sexy. This is such a multi-layered fragrance that the opening and basenotes are almost like wearing two different perfumes, yet they compliment each other beautifully. I'd put this up against any expensive department store brand.


This goes over extremely well on a date. In fact, this perfume reminds me of a date...flirty and fun and lovely at the beginning, deliciously and promisingly tempting in the middle, and smoky-eyed sensual sex-on-a-stick wish-fulfillment at the end. If you haven't given this a try, you don't know what you're missing. But warning...do NOT wear this if you are not woman enough to live up to all it promises.


Oh...by the way, it's places like this that rumors get started. I wrote Coty begging for the reinstatement of this supposedly "discontinued" fragrance, and they told me it has most definitely NOT been discontinued. So, let's go through that again, slowly so you can catch it...ici has NOT been discontinued. Now, go buy some! (just not MY bottles!)

I always passed this fragrance when looking at perfumes at the drugstore. The name Ici, which means ''here'' in French, in my mind conjured up images of a perfume that was a heavy, loud floral. You know, a HERE I AM tuberose and gardenia white floral somewhat like Fracas. I'm not a floral person, so I never even thought to sniff this.
But somehow, I stumbled upon these reviews and saw that this drugstore staple is said to smell like everything from birthday cake and breakfast foods to creme brulee and chocolate. I HAD to try it!
I bought a small .375 oz stocking stuffer bottle in holiday packaging for only $3.
To me, it smells like sweet vanilla flavored caramels. The topnotes are slightly floral, but that fades within minutes. You are left with a sweet sugary fragrance that lasts all day. Ici would be good for someone who likes Pink Sugar or other sweet scents but wants to change it up to something a BIT more sophisticated for not a lot of money.
