Oooohhhhweee!!! The packaging is lovely and the sent of coconut milk mango is far better than what I expected. I bought this without smelling, but the price was right. The roller works great the strength of the smell from 1-5 is a 3.5 Just enough to be noticeable but not enough that the person next to you isn't taken over by the scent. I will be buying this one again or even trying out the other scents!
lovely but doesn't last
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.
What a Coincidence!
I received the Grapefruit/Oleander in a such an artisan box...Grapefruit is one of my favorites here in FL too. First place I happened to arrive at was where the only place grapefruits grew and it was an orchard and now a beautiful park. The box is lovely, the scent is light and just right for my senses. Fragrance inspires creation, and the box matched the scent...I am eyeing the citrus one now.
No cactus or verde, just sugar and sweetness :(
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.
I purchased this a while ago and was so sad that I finished it this week. The scent is great, not too subtle/not too strong. I use it almost every day and keep it in my purse, so I could freshen up for long nights.
Go be lovely
I received this as a gift. I love the packaging it's so pretty and I love that it's a roller instead of a spray. The scent is absolutely Devine it's not overpowering has a coconut scent to it. Perfect for summer.
Subtle and Sexy
This little roller ball is great. I LOVE the packaging it comes in and the protective tube means that I can toss it in my purse and not have to worry about a scent-tastrophy. The grapefruit oleander scent is fresh and super sexy. I like to put just a bit on at the end of the work day as I head out to meet my friends for drinks or my husband for dinner. The scent signals to my brain that work is done and now it's time to PLAY.
Very light and wonderful scent. Last all day, sweet smell. Great size to carry in your purse.
Lovely and light
I received Desert Tulip in my Lovely Day box. I normally wear citrus/herby scents. I hate floral scents, and I sniffed it and wasn't sure, but I put it on to test anyway. Then I caught myself sniffing my wrist over and over for the next hour. It is a very fresh and watery scent, and the first floral I've ever willingly worn! I like it so much that I am going to have to buy another one to try.
Convenient and lasting
I love a good roller ball, so easy to keep in a gym bag or purse. Some have a tendency to wear off right away. This one is lasting enough that you won't feel the need to reapply every half hour.
