Caldrea Roller Ball Perfume

We fell hard for the clean and chic packaging of these rollerball perfumes before we even took our first whiff. Unlike most run-of-the-mill scents, they’re simple and fresh, not cloying. Caldrea prides itself on its organic plant-based ingredients, so you can feel good about wearing these fragrances on a daily basis.

fades, too light in it's scent
Purchased

This was a disappointing purchase, received the sample for the lotion in my monthly box, and I thought that this would be just like it, I was wrong. I still use it for after the shower or if I am just walking uptown. Something light for a breezy day.

Tiny
Purchased

I'm not a roll-on fan; but I find they are the best companion when traveling. Since I'm not traveling anytime soon, I keep it in my bag for a quick pick "me" up. "Me" meaning, only I can really smell it. The bottle is quite tiny. I find myself rolling on and on in order to share my new found scent with others -- not happening, unless they are super close. The lotion is better!

Very strong
Purchased

I ordered the Tea Olive scent because I usually love tea scents. This comes in a nice little rollerball bottle, but it has a very strong fragrance. There is an overwhelming floral note that I think is the orchid, which is too bad because I was hoping for a light citrus.

Loved the scent of the lotion, didn't love this
Purchased

I bought this roller ball because I loved the scent of the lotion I got in my Birchbox. I read the Birchbox reviews of the lotion and saw that the scent didn't last very long, and also saw that the roller ball was less expensive, so I figured I would give the roller ball a try. Turns out the scent isn't as nice and smooth/subtle as it was in the lotion, and the scent of the roller ball ended up making me kind of nauseated, which was the opposite experience I had with the lotion! Disappointing :( Would be up for trying the lotion again at some point.

Coconut Fig Leaf, Heavy on the Fig!
Purchased

I usually prefer oriental and woodsy perfumes, but I bought this product in Coconut Fig Leaf on a whim after browsing the less expensive scents. The packaging is lovely and the bottle is small but with a good weight and it seems quite sturdy. The top note is a fresh fig that is a bit juicy, but not at all cloying or overly-sweet. It almost smells like slightly under-ripe fig, but not in a sour way - just very fresh and green. There might be some clover adding to the green note, but it's largely overwhelmed by the fig. The coconut is there in the top note, but it isn't sunscreeny or too sweet; it adds a subtle warmth and depth that balances with the fig well. The top notes faded fairly quickly on me - they were gone in about 15 minutes - and dried down to a nice middle and base note combination of sandalwood and musk, with just a tiny hint of something powdery - perhaps violet? As someone who typically avoids gourmand scents and bought this one without smelling it first, I was pretty pleased with it. The notes are well balanced and it smells good. I gave it a 3/5 because it didn't last very long (had to reapply after 3/4 hours) and I didn't smell any cedar in the base notes (which is listed in the product description).

So disappionted
Purchased

This fragrance smells so wonderful. It smells a bit like the beach in the beginning and finishes with a very calming earthy smell. Unfortunately, the scent doesn't linger AT ALL.
I am so bummed. I am searching for a great smell, and I suppose this isn't the one...

Lovely but fades
Purchased

I really loved the lotions, so I tried the roller ball perfume. The scent was really nice but it faded rather quickly.

Smells great, fades quickly
Purchased

I love, love, LOVE the scents of all of the Caldrea perfumes, and I was excited to buy the roller ball to keep some in my purse. Unfortunately, this stuff wears off within an hour of application (at least for me). It's become more of a pick-me-up that I apply when I need a little refresher, but that's about it.

Light scent
Purchased

I like that it's not strong at all. It's a nice scent to wear to work. Doesn't last all day though and the coconut scent is very faint.

Nice, but doesn't last
Purchased

I tried the Coconut Fig Leaf and the Aloe Water Apricot. Both are light, pleasant, sophisticated scents. Coconut Fig Leaf is surprisingly fresh and green; it does not smell like suntan lotion at all. The only downside is that the fragrance is very subtle and doesn't last. Needs re-application a couple times a day.
