Momoberry by Hello Kitty


I really, really, really wanted to like this one. I thought the notes were perfect for my summer fragrance, and had extremely high hopes when my sample came from Lucky Scent. Alas, I was to be disappointed. It's sweet. Not just sweet, but syrupy sweet. Way too sweet for me. I probably shouldn't be that surprised considering I'm a huge fan of incense and amber notes, but gardenia, jasmine and even some light pineapple are also favorites. Although the notes listed are Frangipani blossoms, red hibiscus, star jasmine, fig, gardenia, guava, pineapple, Tahitian vanilla, sandalwood, coconut, and musk, it ended up being cloyingly sweet on drydown. I'm not sure if it's the fragipani or the fruit notes, but I'm leaning more towards the fruit. You have to love Hello Kitty, though. It's not a drugstore quality or even a mall quality scent - this is more sophisticated than that. Like Hello Kitty grows up, but still stays as sweet as she can be. A great fragrance for someone who likes sweeter notes, just doesn't quite work on me.
