I admit I'm not a hardcore fan of Arianna Grande; in fact I've not heard any of her music except for her collab with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj. But never before have I encountered a perfume that seems tailored to my tastes, until I bought Ari.
What drew me in was the ultra cute bottle with the fuzzy pompom! The bottle is a girly-girls dream design. It's a geometric textured design, kind of inspired by the facets of a cut gemstone. The liquid is pink tinted which combines nicely with the rosy pink metallic cap. There is a super fluffy white pompom attached to the cap, which can be detached and put on a handbag as it's only held on with a claw clasp. The overall design is so pretty that it has to be displayed proudly on my vanity desk.
Moving on to the scent. It's a very sweet, not in a totally fruity way, but more of a musk undertone. There is a slight fruitiness which I feel lifts the scent and makes it a bit lighter. Over time I feel that the muskiness dissipates and what's left is just the sweet fragrance. Some of the fragrance notes are: raspberry, vanilla orchid, marshmallow and musk. I have to say that I don't get the the marshmallow at all, unless that is just what makes it so sweet. Maybe my nose is just not that sensitive?
I am quite in love with this fragrance; right now there is the possibility of this being my new favourite. It's currently in competition with my Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom cologne. It's £23 for 30ml of fragrance which I think is a fair price; definitely worth at try at least, even if your unsure.
