Hi friends, today I will discuss my newest purchase, Cloud by Ariana Grande! My 2nd celebrity fragrance in my collection next to Madonna’s Truth Or Dare Naked (discontinued). I will tell you why I like this one so much, how it wears, and some other details. Let me know in the comment section what you think about Cloud!
Have a great week,
Cloud by Ariana Grande
Ok, before I will tell you everything about the fragrance, let me tell you some background info.
I am not a fan of Ariana her music, there are some songs I can appreciate and are nice for on the road or just background music… So it’s not that I was fan-girling when I saw she launched a new fragrance. The bottle got my attention, I don’t think it’s that ugly. Maybe just a little childish but I kind of like it. I saw some reviews online of people saying it’s a dupe of Baccarat Rouge by Francis Kurkdjian … and since I really love that fragrance but I find it a bit too overpriced, I decided to give it a shot. I just had to let go of the idea that it’s a celebrity fragrance by a popstar I don’t really listen to at all…
A fragrance inspired by optimism and hope.

A dupe of Baccarat Rouge
And the people on the internet are right … it is a dupe of the Baccarat Rouge, but I have to say that this one is not “the same”. It comes very close to this famous niche fragrance. I find Ariana’s Cloud more tropical.
Ariana Grande’s cloud contains notes of : lavender, pear, whipped cream, coconut, praline, vanilla orchid, musk and woody notes.
Compared to Baccarat Rouge that contains : jasmine, saffron, amberwood, ambergris, fir resin, and cedar.
The fragrances starts with a full blast of creamy goodness. I find it hard to detect specific notes with this one but I do get a lot of pear with a little bit of lavender followed up with the whipped cream and musky ness. I also get slight memories of Alien Men … the notes in Cloud are original and I think that Cloud is a very good well-done-celebrity fragrance.
I would say Cloud is a fruity-gourmand, with great performance. The fragrance is 5 hours after I sprayed it still detectable. I only wish the opening would last a little longer since that is the part I find the most interesting.
Very similar to Baccarat Rouge 540 by Francis Kurkdjian
Interesting and original fragrance composition
A great price, I got my 50 ml bottle for 36 Euros.
Original bottle design.
