I was rather disappointed when I smelt this. I had imagined Miracle to smell sweet and flowery, especially since the pretty pink bottle had misled me. Instead Miracle is a strong burst of peppered fruits, a little like spicy orange juice I thought.

In some ways it's quite sour and unpleasantly strong. I think it's one of those scents that rely on the wearer's skin chemistry. I've smelt this on a few people who've managed to make this fragrance smell softer and more flowery.

On a more positive note, I like that Miracle is different. The spiciness mixed with the fruits is interesting and original. This fragrance would make an excellent Summer/Spring or casual scent.

I usually love Versace perfumes, and I was sure that I would love this one too because of the tuberose and coconut notes. Unfortunately this was not so.

All I got from this fragrance was a strong burst of powdery aldehydes, and let's just say I'm not a fan of aldehydes.

On the other hand, Crystal Noir has great lasting power. After wearing it for a couple of hours the aldehydes softened and I could smell the coconut and tuberose. I did quite enjoy the drydown, but I found it a little similar to Curious by Britney Spears, which I already have. I'm not one for buying perfumes that smell like something I already own.

This fragrance has just been introduced in Australia, so I'm sure it would be in the US and the UK already.

It is very fruity and sweet. Sunkissed Glow smells a little bit like mandarin, passionfruit and oranges, but definitely not sour. It's not something that I can imagine appealing to a more mature audience, as it is more likely to be bought by the younger crowd. This flanker has great lasting power. It has been 6 hours since I first applied it, and it is still going strong.

Unfortunately I won't be purchasing this fragrance as I don't find it a unique scent in any way. It reminds me of something I've smelt before, but I can't seem to put my finger on it.

I do still like this fragrance, I always have, but there is something about it that isn't urging me to buy it.

Miss Dior Cherie is most definitely fruity and sweet, and certainly aimed at a younger crowd. The scent itself is quite complex and strong. The pineapple and strawberry wine notes seem to dominate this fragrance. Surprisingly I consider Miss Dior Cherie a boozy type of scent; something that would blend in well when worn to a bar.

Unfortunately I don't see myself buying this because, for starters, I have far too many fruity scents, and secondly, I'm needing a more sophisticated, wintry scent for the colder months. (This version of Miss Dior Cherie is no longer sold and has been replaced by a more watered-down version of Miss Dior Cherie, minus the strawberry and popcorn).

I don't know what was going through my head when I decided that I actually liked this fragrance. Trying it on my wrist today made me change my mind completely.

Sickeningly sweet, synthetic and reminiscent of toilet spray was how I perceived Beyond Paradise. I just couldn't get this perfume off my wrist fast enough.

Definitely long-lasting, it took 3 different types of soaps to get this one off.

I tried Happy for the very first time in a large department store whilst on holiday in Melbourne. I instantly loved it and quickly added Happy to my perfume wishlist. I was shocked when I heard how many negative reviews this perfume had been given and I found it extremely hard to understand why... until today. I entered that same department store, (except in a different location), where they had a Happy tester bottle waiting to be sprayed. I tried it, and was utterly shocked! I now know what people meant when they said that Happy smelt like burnt rubber and licorice.

Happy does not have a very long shelf life. It has been known to go off in as little as 8 months. Many tester bottles are kept out in the open, exposed to light and heat which will naturally see them deteriorate faster.

My advice to you, is if you have had a similar unpleasant experience, I suggest you buy from a trusted dealer, especially a place that sells Happy at such a rate that they have to renew their stock every 6 months.

I have had this perfume on my wishlist for a very long time now since smelling it on a tester card a few months ago. Today I decided to try it on my skin, and let's just say I was utterly disappointed.

Daisy EDP does not blend well with my skin chemistry at all, and ends up smelling like something reminiscent of play-dough. It was somewhat sickening and dirty smelling on me.

When I look back now, I can see why so many people love Daisy, yet I don't consider this fragrance unique or outstanding in any way. Marc Jacobs was actually playing it safe when this perfume was created. I can't deny that Daisy is a best-seller, being very popular amongst young women, yet I wonder how many people bought this fragrance because of the bottle design and the hype surrounding it.

You simply can't go wrong with Angel. Being one of the most popular and well-known fragrances in the last 20 years, Angel still manages to stand out in a crowd.

This is a delicious and very unique scent, the first of its kind. It's sexy, dark, mysterious, sweet and memorable. Surprisingly quite controversial, it seems that you will either love or hate this fragrance. I personally adore it and love wearing it, especially during Winter or on a night out on the town.

When I first apply Angel to my skin I get a very distinctive mandarin note. This mandarin is fresh, juicy and raw, and smells exactly like the actual fruit. Minutes later Angel begins to smell like gingerbread men and vanilla. I can even sense a chocolatey note, but perhaps more like a mug of hot chocolate rather than a block of solid chocolate.

I find it difficult to control my sweet tooth whenever I wear this fragrance. I feel compelled to walk straight into the nearest bakery and buy every sweet pastry I can afford.

Don't be fooled by the name, Angel is in no way innocent. 'Demon' would be a far more suitable name for this scent.

I suggest that everyone try this at least once in their lifetime, because like Chanel No.5, it is quickly becoming a well-known classic.

I bought Funny! six months ago when I was shopping with a group of friends without testing it first. I'm very glad now that I did. Originally I bought Funny! because I loved the cute little bottle, but after some time the fragrance grew on me, and now I absolutely adore this fragrance.

I really love this perfume because for once I can really smell the difference between the top, middle and base notes. Funny! starts out really fruity for the first hour, then eventually it mellows into a delightful floral where you can definitely smell the peony, jasmine, green tea and violet. The middle notes last for ages, and when the perfume finally starts to fade, your nose is met with a beautiful and calming ambery scent.

I love wearing this during Spring or whenever I need a mood boost.

Believe is such an amazingly unique fragrance.

It is one of those scents that grow on you, the more you wear it the more you love it.

When I first tried Believe I hated it. Even when I bought it, it wasn't a favourite. I thought it smelt far too masculine, spicy and strong, with the patchouli giving me some serious headaches.

Almost a year on, Believe has surpassed the other Britney fragrances in my collection and has become one of my favourite choices for Spring and Summer.

Believe is more spicy than it is sweet. If you want the sugary goodness from Fantasy, the sweet syrupy fruits in Midnight Fantasy or the light, girlish florals from Curious, then this isn't for you.

Britney has taken a more mature approach towards this scent. My nose is met with a delightful blend of tropical fruits in the opening which is neither synthetic, overly sweet nor nauseatingly fruity.

The drydown is divine with an interesting blend of lime blossom, honeysuckle, amber and patchouli, which gives this scent raw sex-appeal.

In some ways Believe smells dirty, in a sexual kind of a way. It's spicy, sensual, woodsy and intriguing. I find that I receive compliments mostly from men when I wear this scent.

People who found her other fragrances too sweet, too childish or too mainstream, should really give Believe a try.
