About this deal

I love that it's refreshingly sweet without being cloying, overly musky or straying into gourmand territory :) It's the perfect summer fragrance for a young woman looking for something bright and cheerful to pair with a sundress and a smile, and though it might not be the most unique composition I've never gone in for a hug wearing this without getting a compliment on it or being asked what I'm wearing. Notes: red berries, dragon fruit, honeysuckle, jasmine, orange blossom, coconut water, vanilla, driftwood, musk. Though it is nothing special, it is well-balanced, and a versatile scent to transition between day and night -- the woodsy element adds something that makes it perfect for getting a couple drinks or a late dinner after work.

It’s nothing special it’s your basic floral fruity scent, I have nothing like this in my collection and it doesn’t give me a headache. The driftwood also complements the overall fruity tone — and it definitely complements the already slightly woody coconut accord — in that it’s not a conventional woodiness, and it keeps the scent lighter than something like cedar would. The scent isn’t something I’d usually go for, very fresh, floral, I don’t really get any fruity notes except for maybe melon but it’s still nice for every day. The scent becomes very slightly sweeter on skin with time, probably the vanilla and musk coming in to play, but on clothes it stays mostly fruit on me.I didn’t think it would have a very good longevity but I applied some this morning and I’m still getting whiffs of it 6 hours later. Not only do I love the scent, but the ladybug concept here is really sweet, too, though I must say that I don't think of ladybugs as being as tropical as the coconut and dragonfruit notes here. It should put her at ease, rather than wearing big complicated classics and if nothing else at least she will have a nice bottle to show or compliment her room. This gorgeous understated scent, signed by perfumers Ann Gottlieb (5th Avenue Elizabeth Arden), and Annie Buzantian (Splendour Elizabeth Arden) is the perfect counterbalance for wearing polka-dots or overdressing.

I also get a thin thread of creamy coconut, light vanilla and some non-descriptive florals in the dry down. Polka dots embellish red petals and a ball on the cap, which looks like ladybug in the heart of a flower. Everyone seems to like daisy and I can get the appeal but I do think is has more depth and personality .I usually go for woody, vanilla, oriental kind of scents I stay away from floral scents since they give me headaches but for some reason I like this. I have been eyeing this perfume for so long and I finally pulled the trigger only to be completely disappointed.
