About this deal

ELIVERA 71-75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, Greater London, London, UK, WC2H 9JQ United Kingdom© 1988 — 2024 Elivera Group.

The opening declared a suitable scent for a teenager - safe, nothing original, pleasant but a little bit too cheap smelling.

I finally received this in the mail today, and I sprayed it on my arm this morning to test, and I love it, it's wonderful, but it has been bothering me all day: this smells familiar. with a trace of that sugared quality we see as a heavy hitter in WAY TOO MANY scents these days, but in Friction the sugar is soft and easy, not childlike. The attractive blend of citrus notes, wood and musk, complemented by the warm base, creates a fun-loving and sexy perfume.

Maybe this perfume is taking it self a little too seriously, holding back from being a coconut fruit cocktail bomb that screams 'pool party' but from reading the reviews I think that's maybe what people were hoping for. Something about the pina-coladaness of this makes one's brain detect pineapple and rum in this by association of the vanilla coconut. Although Friction is not likely an expensive fragrance anywhere in the world, I could easily spend much less on a nice spray.FCUK fragrances were made in collaboration with perfumers Geza Schoen, Caroline Sabas, Corinne Cachen and Philippe Romano. It's not very strong (sillage definitely lowest option), is very sweet, and smells similar to the Bath and Body Works scents I have. My only complaint is that I can literally only smell it for mere minutes; it is that weak on me with virtually no sillage. Tested this a couple of years ago, and thought it would make a good back-up bottle to leave at work. A splash of fruity cocktail lends a burst of freshness to begin with, followed by a sensual bouquet of feminine floral notes.

It's such a beautiful milky coconut and vanilla scent that settles down to this absolutely stunning florally coconutty vanilla mixture. The notes: pink honeysuckle, apple blossom, red berries, creamy coconut, spun sugar, vanilla absolute, pink jasmine, white vetiver, blonde woods, sandalwood, amber, magnetic musk.I must say I will leave this one for summer and as we have just come into winter don't think the cooler weather does this perfume justice. You've smelled this type of scent before in an Ed Hardy or Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj fragrance before.
