This is like you're at a fair, stuffing your face in good, proper Candy floss!
Just having a great time somewhere.
If you are in doubt, I let the fact that 50 other people and growing said this reminds them of BR540 in the section above, not to mention the numerous videos and comments here.There is no denying BR540 was the blueprint behind this fragrance.It really is mind boggling that the scent is spot on yet the notes are totally different.The sweetness also elevates the subtle Amber note that's blended so well in here, it's a million miles superior I feel to the terribly annoying camphor and clove party of 'Grand Soir or rather for me, Band (-aid) soir.I never buy celeb fragrances either, and I would have never thought about buying Cloud had it not been for the BR540 comparison.I have no clue how some people have said this gives them an hour and then fades, I got minimum 9 hours yesterday out of this with people still asking what I was wearing at the end of the day.If I smelled someone wearing this I would 100 assume it was BR540.As another reviewer mentioned, the perfumers are the unsung heroes here.
There's no intrusive floral nectar here or thick, mushy tuberose 'ghost note' that turns this into Female make-up bag territory or that annoying 'Minimalist, almost ward-like cleanliness' of so many other MFK scents, depending on the above accord.
Worthy of a 200 price tag, but underneath it all, I thought, without all that hype, this scent could easily be a celeb fragrance.
I didn't want to believe it, but I ordered a 100ml bottle because I was so curious after hearing all the hype and I was truly gobsmacked when I opened the cap and sprayed it on myself.Jk about the lawsuit, won't happen as they are completely different recipes.I was after some of the more 'resinous' tones the Note graphic says too, and the Lady in Selfriges mentioned Sandalwood, but sadly, little to none of these.(still can't get over it btw, a actual candy floss scent xDDD ).I've been wearing it for a few hours (sillage going strong 4 hours) and I keep getting whiffs of BR540 and forget I'm wearing Cloud.The only difference I would say is the sparkling quality that BR540 has, and that Cloud has a slightly sweeter note, but that fruit punchy, DNA of 's unmistakeable.Remeber that old cabaret burlesque casino montreal 'classic' that everyone and their goldfish was raving about several Years ago as being the 'de facto standard Saccharin sweet scent Acqua e-zucchero?But it's still a great scent.And this for some confused people is why there is the rave-hype for this scent; except this time, it's wholly justified!People wouldn't be saying this just for a laugh, I know I'm not.There are flaws for me ofc; the over-simplicity (as MFK does the note (not sure which one it is) that can sometimes give that 'hospital ward' vibe to a few, the total lack of progression in this 200 wallet-melter that really, I should be scoring.
