This is the first time I've ever ordered a fragrance without smelling it first. I won't make that mistake again. I took a chance because, based on the name and description of Cactus Verde on Illume's website, I thought this would smell light, clean and fresh. I was very surprised to find out what a heavy, sickeningly sweet fragrance it actually is. To me the scent is something that would only appeal to a very young girl. On the upside, the packaging is nice.2
I got this perfume on a whim to try something new. When I got it its very nice packaging and in a very cute bottle which is why I'm giving it 2 stars.. the roll on bottle. It doesn't let much out which is nice because you can control how much you put on. I opened the cap and tried it on and at first I couldn't smell anything, but after waiting a few minutes I could smell it and it was awful. I didnt smell any geranium but I smelled a lot of cedar with a hint of grapefruit ( mostly cedar), which I didnt care for. If you don't like woodsy scents you won't like this scent either. Smelled a little manly to me.2
I like the application method and the texture of this product is very light weight. However the scent is a little overpowering at first. The scent just isn't for me. It has a very strong under tone of aloe maybe.2
I got the Desert Tulip in an LE box and it's not the most offensive floral but is still way too floral for my taste. Why 3 stars? $12 is cheap and the other fragrances seem promising based on description and reviews. Will likely use points to try another fruity, non-floral scent.3
I really like the fragrance and branding/packaging. The cactus pear and salt scent truly is intoxicating, but it really just doesn't last!!
The roller ball works very well but depletes a lot of product, so I predict this demi-perfume will be gone pretty quickly. But, I do really like it, and the cylindrical box is something I will probably display for quite a while.
To be honest, I don't' venture too far when it comes to perfumes. However, this rollerball adds a beautiful scent that is not heavy or overpowering. It is also a clean and fresh scent as well.3
My mom got the Coconut Milk Mango in her Lovely Box and she gave it to me. The scent is very tropical and light. It reminds me of Miami. I could see wearing this on a warm summer's day to the farmer's market, but I wouldn't wear it for a flirty night out.3
I got Desert Tulip in my lovely day box. Loved the roller and the pretty box i came in. I was not crazy on the scent. It was a sublte floral not too old ladyish but still more floral than I can take. I asked my husband thinking maybe if he likes it I will wear for him...his words it is kinda different but not bad. The cocunut one with mango would have been more up my alley.3
It didnt smell good on me or in the bottle but , on my mom it smelt lovely so i gave it to her and she loved it , to each there own i guess.3
The scent was a strong floral. I would purchase as gifts, I think this would make a great present for a friend.3
