Summary: I was hooked on this at first smell. Nothing else smells like it. It starts out very sweet, but the spiciness comes out upon drydown, after which it smells sweet, spicy and animistic in almost equal measure. My hubby swears there's chocolate in this, and I agree that the sweetness makes this worthy of being called gourmand. I also agree with Awesomeness that a little goes a long way. It lasts a long time and the sillage is great too.
Summary: This fragrance is so comfortable to wear, even on warm summer days. In the warmer months it smells like raspberry sour ribbons, chocolate covered cherries and floral talcum powder, in the best way possible, trust me. Dry, sweet and refreshing. Men seem to really love this one! When I wear it in colder months, the pepper and woods get abit more prominent. Great for day and night.
Summary: I used to wear this back in 03' and man does it bring back some memories. I only stopped wearing this and Poeme and gucci rush at the time as all my friends decided they loved these on me (especially this one) and starting wearing them and I wanted to smell different so went on a journey of spicy orientals which I love now. This in essence is actually too sweet for my taste but the heavy smokiness, vetiver and peppery notes save it and it smells divine on me.
Summary: Smell is too sweet for me. It isn't that bad of a scent, but it just seems like they had it right then someone was bumped and dropped a bunch more sugary raspberry in. The raspberry reminds me of the raspberry body spray I got from avon years and years ago (which was awesome) so I can't justify paying $80 CDN for a bottle of this. It does seem to last long which I think is great.
Summary: This is one of those perfumes that make people stop and ask what you are wearing. I get compliments everyday on this perfume. Hands down this is one of the best perfumes I've ever owned and I wil not never get tired of it. This is my fourth bottle. I put this on early in the morning and by the evening I can still smell it. In the bottle it doesn't smell as good but once you spray it on your skin it smell absolutely amazing.
Summary: I use this perfume every day. I always receive compliments from men and women about the delicious smell : ) I received this in a 3 set tester from an ex, and found the perfect scent for me. LOVE IT!!!!!
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering
Summary: I have not found any not so great aspects of Hot Couture. It totally makes me feel feminine. A few years ago I was told it was going to be fazed out, however; hasn't happened and hope it never will. This fragrance is so perfect.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering, Sensual, Sexy
Summary: I love the smell of this perfume, but I eventually got tired of it. I don't recommend buying the bigger bottles because if you don't like it, then it'll be a waste of money. It is a strong perfume, so I don't recommend soaking yourself in it.
Summary: I gave up on finding a sweet edible fragrance that lasted and didn't smell childish and cheap. So i dropped the new scent search for a couple of years and stuck with my standbys. (Falling in Love, Coco Mlle) Then after reading reviews for Hot Couture and giving it a few tries: Yes! This scent is like a raspberry mocha, it's super sweet but rich, freshness from the berries but creamy from the chocolate/vanilla/coffee.
