Ariana Grande Cloud is a fruity floral gourmand created by Clement Gavarry and launched in 2018. It has become a cult favorite with lots of comparisons to BR540. Notes of Lavender, Pear, Bergamot, Whipped cream, Praline, Coconut, Vanilla orchid, Musk and Woody Notes.
Fragrantica - "One of the best releases from a celebrity line In the last few years, I’d never heard of BR40 before in my life so when I smelled this I was blown away by the salty creamy saltiness of it. Lasting power is out of this world as well it’s easily 12+ hours on my skin and without fail every time I use it someone compliments me on it. I went to test BR40 in the shops and when I asked the price I nearly fell over it was that ridiculous. I’ll be sticking to Cloud for its price and longevity lol. My only complaint is the big plastic cloud the perfume"
Fragrantica - " bought cloud to see what was all the hype about. As a gourmand lover I can agree. The first spray I got only the whipped cream coconut praline and a little bit of orchid. It transformed quickly into a roasted marshmallow smell with a hint of pina colada but it's very nice in my opinion. I put 1 spray in my hair ,wore it the whole day and washed my hair in the night. Next day suprise I could still smell a vag aroma of roasted marshmallows. That says A LOT about performance. Definitely will snatch one more bottle of this."
Fragrantica - "I love this. It's completely changed my view on celebrity fragrances, this is in a league of its own. It’s warm and sweet but NEVER sickly sweet, and never heavy in the cream like This Is Her.There’s definitely the pear that to my nose gives it a warm seaside kind of vibe, that keeps it fresh without being citrusy or forest-like. But it’s more of a warm breeze from the ocean rather than something marine.
It definitely smells edible, but light - like a cloud.
It shrouds you completely with this well-blended concoction of sweetness."
Fragrantica - ":Oh, Cloud. I hated you the first time I tried you. And the second time. But I couldn't escape you! The perfume world, being afever with BR540 and clones thereof, this one is hard to avoid discussions of. Like a bad penny, Cloud just kept popping up. I have left at least one other review of Cloud here; lamenting the sterile dentists office-meets BandAid scent. The more I thought about her, the more I wanted to smell her...to try her...again. I bought In the Stars from BBW and was in love with that. So I bought a 30 ml of Cloud with a coupon I had. And ok, this is as good as they say. I still get the "sterile" vibe and a certain masculine "mall cologne" vibe, but mixed with whipped cream and praline. It's actually heavenly. This is an airy, androgynous (yet very sweet) gourmand. I've never smelled BR540, so I can't attest any comparison."
Fragrantica - "Also it’s my first singer or artist perfume never thought I would buy it because I always thought this kind of perfumes would smell so cheap… and let me tell u i was really wrong !!! coz THIS doesnt smell cheap AT ALL and I should have bought this long time ago….."
