A cherry on the cake of everyday life or: Love at 2nd sight
I first encountered "Cloud" by Ariana Grande shortly after its release in the blue D. Determined I went to the somewhat kitschy for me bottle and sprayed him bravely on the back of my hand. "Oh no, it smells funny, it's not for me" was my verdict. At the time. In fact, it smelled quite masculine to me at the time, not at all creamy-coconutty, and it was because of that note that I wanted to try it. I was disappointed and a bit pissed.
Thanks to Parfumo, I dared to try it again last fall and ordered it blind, since "Cloud" is nowhere to be found in our drugstores. And this 2nd chance was really a stroke of luck :-)
The cloud really stinks beastly of plastic, I have it - like many others -
The first impression was a bit tart, as then, but not directly masculine, rather unisex. Maybe my nose has also become more refined or the fragrance was then not yet "ripe" for me, such a thing shoulds yes.
Lavender, bergamot and pear I can smell out without problems. Pleasant and quite extraordinary for a celebrity fragrance. Soon comes the coconut cream to it, which I find really quite delicious, beautiful and to bite, but not too sticky, which I like very much.
As the scent moved to the base, it felt incredibly familiar to me. I had to think a bit before I came up with it: "Original" by s.oliver, which was once my signature scent and is still very happy to wear. I think "Cloud" smells exactly like "Original" in the base only with a bit of coconut cream. Beautiful. The base note is consistently intense for hours. In fact, until it fades out, the lavender still resonates and ensures that the scent doesn't get too pop-sweet and stays grown up in a way. The durability is really very good, on the clothes I smell it for days, even on the skin it is still perceptible in the evening. I could imagine the quite also for me as a signature fragrance, if I had not "La Nuit Tresor a la folie" of Lancome verfallen.
Finally once again a "Promiduft" with depth and a well used 2nd chance :-)
