About this deal

This smells almost entirely of raspberries to me, but with a hint of the woods that make it smell not so much like a body spray! To my nose, it’s a salty-jasmine-litchi scent that is not too sweet; it kind of reminds me of the smell of new crayons. I've worn it to work for a 7 hour shift and if we include travel time there and back it's nearly 8 hours.

The florals here I wouldn’t have picked out as peony and jasmine- they smell more like the white florals in a MM replica beach walk, or L'Eau d'Issey Shade of Sunrise.And as that being said, I bought this just for the bottle without any expectation because so far, Anna Sui fragrances lack of lasting power and projection. I liked this beachy effect, which reminded me a little of the dry downs of Aroma Sanctum Mermaid and Oriza L.

We will introduce you exclusively to Newpay finance products provided by NewDay Limited under this Introducer Appointed Representative arrangement. Praline is not too over powering and it's like other Anna Sui perfume; mysterious and able to use nausea inducing notes and turn it lovable for most people. But honestly what really caught my attention were these comments comparing it to the smell of public schools and home depot, as I didn't have anything like that in my collection. It reminds me of the manly sidekick to Jessica Simpson's 'Vintage Bloom', as they have a similar lemony/citric note, where Jessica's are more sweet and sugary, this one is more cedar/cypress and therefore more like a manly cologne. And they both have some subtle soft woods at the base (for Fantasia it's cypress/cedar and for L'Imperatrice it's sandalwood, but the overall impression is similar).

Has lasted all day 12+ hrs for me multiple times through sweat and sunscreen, I can still smell it on shirts after they've been through the wash (no dryer)! It's a very gentle, petal-soft scent, but unfortunately doesn't have much staying power even for an eau de toilette. The cardamom and honey its warmth on your brow contrasted with the cool sweetness of citrus and litchi on the breeze. I could smell it wafting through the air as my daughter skipped ahead of me after a full day of school.

I think for people expecting a very feminine, girly sweet fragrance, yes you will be disappointed but trust me this scent is so brilliantly made. Top notes are Blood Orange, Cardamom and Mandarin Orange; middle notes are Litchi, Jasmine and Peony; base notes are Honey, Vanilla and White Wood. Presence and impact open this fragrance with an exquisite infusion of mandarines freshness highlighted by a nuance of vibrant Jasmine who deepens into signature sophistication. I haven't bought that many perfumes in the past year, as I also don't have my collection anymore either.I got a bit of fruitiness with floral notes very sugary vibe and what a pretty mermaid would smell like. One of the few Sui creations that I don't find appealing, and wouldn't even recommend to the targeted age group. The citrus and a hint of white floral were still present, but the sun-and-fun fruit, in particular, had calmed down substantially. Longevity and Sillage are super weak that a body mist from Bath and Body works would probably out perform this. I'm sure for someone it would be a signature scent, but while I do really enjoy the smell, it is something I smell at home before putting on something else I wear outside.

I was expecting something sweet with the lychee but truly believe that's what gives it that oceanic smell. It smells quite natural really, it isn't very sweet , its truly more like salty air carried on the breeze.

it had turned partially sand-y and driftwood-y, with a peppery note and perhaps some very muted ambergris. FANTASIA MERMAID settles into a skin scent fairly quickly and has a soft sillage that stays close to the skin. Mush, Mush mush and crushed the sugar into the sour grapefruit until the sugar dissolved into the grapefruit’s juice and segments and the grapefruit really juiced up! This perfume smells like the sun, the tropical beach, and the frozen fruit delights used to stave off the heat. I have no idea what this smells like, have never tried it, but I had to thank you for the really good laugh I'm having reading some of the reviews!
