Awwww Harajuku Lovers Sunshine Cuties Lil’ Angel is turning out to be the Muse’s fav Sunshine Cutie at the moment. It’s no wonder as I think the regular version of Lil’ Angel happens to be my fav as well!
Jump for my review on Lil’ Angel!
As you know Harajuku Lovers Fragrances are ready for Spring breakin’ with new clothes and new scents. Loves it! The girls now feature bathing suits and fun accessories for the warmer weather plus they have a tropical twist on their scents to complete the package!
Harajuku Lovers Sunshine Cuties Lil’ Angel is proving to be my favorite of the bunch and possibly the one with the most interesting of notes so far. During my testing, up until now, I’ve been able to sniff some of the original blends in the fragrances but Lil’ Angel felt like a completely revamped fragrance and went the route of lemony cake goodness.
Anyone who adores the long gone Bath and Body Works Hello Sugar should try out Lil’ Angel as she’s easily a dupe for the scent. Combing notes of Meyer Lemon, Mandarin, Touch of Blackberry, Pink Rose, Vanilla Orchid, Tropical Sampaquita Blossom, Sugared Patchouli, Vanilla Bean, Skin Musk, and Golden Amber, she’s the warmest of the bunch thus far.
I get a very heavy note of lemon and mandarin from her and a dry down of vanilla which could be what adds the “cake” or foody smell to the scent. For the most part she smells like a lighter version of BBW Hello Sugar! and translates as a foody, fruity lemon cake scent. To my nose I’m smelling white cake with some sort of lemon jelly filling or perhaps as a frosting or a tart of some sort. The other more complicated notes such as amber and patchouli aren’t dominate in the least (I would know as I run from patchouli) and for the most part lemon reigns supreme.
Overall, I must say she’s been the best of the bunch so far and I’m enjoying the scent to the max particularly because I really miss Hello Sugar! now that I’m on my very last bottle of it.
Well worth your sniffling time.
