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.
Smelling the tropics
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!
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.
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.
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.
