Hello Kitty Beauty Fragrance Eau de Parfum Spray Review

Ok, so who’s seen Hello Kitty Beauty at Sephora? I ran into at the Sephora in Herald Square recently and simply had to snatch up the gorgeous Hello Kitty Eau de Parfum! I couldn’t stand the cute overload.

So sweet!

Let’s peek it!

But of course the main appeal here is the sweet little bottle this comes in! The fragrance comes housed in a Hello Kitty head with a large crystallized bow on our favorite cat’s head to emphasis the whimsical nature of the collection! So very sweet! They went a touch vintage here as well and gave the fragrance a puff atomizer for application.

The puff atomizer is a bit tricky to use as it doesn’t mist very well, it kinda hiccups fragrance out however once it gets flowing it works perfectly fine.

I do think the packaging could be misleading to some as you’ll automatically assume the scent might be childish or too sweet however it’s actually quite an interesting blend with dominate notes of crisp, tart green apple but more complex layers of rich florals and warm vanilla and a tiny hint of musk to add a little touch of sophistication and glamor. The top layer and dominate note is of course apple but notes of freesia also play an important role as well as vanilla and magnolia!

It’s definitely fruity floral but not sweet in the least and warms up dramatically due to the musk and vanilla in the mix but you also still gets hints of sparkling notes that give it a playful edge! I thought it was quite flattering! The throw and linger on the scent is rather strong and lasts quite well throughout the day as well.

The scent comes in various forms including a more inexpensive body splash, lotion, shower gel, roll on, and even a solid fragrance housed in a Hello Kitty Head Pendant!

This 1.7 oz bottle is $59 and personally I thought it wasn’t too badly priced. The bottle is also easy enough to refill with your favorite fragrance or the body splash when you’re done as the atomizer twists off easily.

Absolutely adored this and thought it was a darling addition to the Sephora family. The whimsical design of the bottle looks gorgeous on my vanity and brings back memories of my obsessive Hello Kitty filled (and adult filled) childhood!

Muse Approved for purchase.

An absolute must have for Hello Kitty fans far and wide.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    darn i was hoping the actual scent would suck. now i’m gonna have to go buy it! i love hello kitty!

  • Mary the Muse Militant

    Gulp – $59.
    But then it’s a bargain really, as you can use it again and again.
    The bottle is adorable !

    • the Muse

      I didn’t think it was too badly priced at all mary ;-D and yes you can refill so kinda a nice extra there!

      • Mary the Muse Militant

        In dollars it sounds a lot at $59 but not too bad when converted to pounds – about £36/£37.
        And 50ml is a great size unlike Angel at 25ml for a higher price.

    I saw this the other and I thought it smelled wonderfully! It came across as grapefruit/vanilla to me though. And there’s a solid perfume in a pendant? Aw man! They didn’t have that out when I went the other day!

    • the Muse

      I thought so too Eve! I was delightfully surprised ;-D Mmm thinking about it yes, kinda a little grapefruit ;-D! YES! It’s a crystal hello kitty head so cute!

  • mon

    Wow, call me surprised! I definitely thought the scent would be sickeningly sweet but now I’ll try to get a whiff of it next time I got to Sephora. The bottle also looks sooo adorable.

    • the Muse

      I thought it might be the same mon but not at all! quite lovely actually ;-D!

  • jonnie

    So this does smell like the splash? I got that and I love the smell, although it doesn’t have a throw so much.

    • the Muse

      yup. the splash the pendant the roll on and this all smell the same jonnie. Doesn’t surprise me considering the splash prob contains alot less perfume oil 🙁

  • Ellie

    My Korean friend always brings back Hello Kitty stuff from there to the US… I at least have to get her the rollerball for her birthday 🙂

  • neutralgirl

    OMG! I just looked at all the Hello Kitty stuff on Sephora’s site and i figured I wouldn’t want anything cuz it would be childish but those cream blush sticks look amazing. The perfume does as well but I have so much perfume that I’m gonna pass.

  • Josh

    I would sooo buy this if I wasn’t already planning on buying Rihanna’s fragrance this month — I love her to death!

    • the Muse

      Oh gosh I forgot about her scent, must try that curious minds also wanna try Boyfriend by Kate Walsh it’s finally coming to Sephora!

  • Marilyn @ Lipgloss and Spandex

    The bottle is just adorable! Like courtney, I would have been able to resist if the scent were terrible… but now I’m going to have to go to Sephora and check it out.

  • Amanda

    I got a free sample of the Hello Kitty Eau de Parfum at a Colorado Sephora. It came in a really cute smaller version of the bottle you show. I’m going back tomorrow to buy a small item just so I can get another sample. I think it’s going to be my new signature fragrance.

  • Swt Azn Qt

    I plan on getting this bottle of perfume, the body lotion, and the shower gel, only later as well! Strange how Sephora’s site says that it’s for $55 compared to your $59 one! Are the prices different in-stores in the U.S. as well? It’s selling for $72 in Canada! Plus, I want to purchase the Too Faced Flatbuki, Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss in Disco Nap and the new Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Gloss in Paiette as well! So that’s why I’m planning on waiting for the F&F event this year! Hopefully they will have it available to Canada again whereas Sephora resticted it last year! Boo! =(

    • Swt Azn Qt

      Oh! I also redeemed my 100-point perk on Sephora’s site for the deluxe sample of this, in a miniature size, which is the same size as the nail poishes as well! I can’t wait until it gets here, hopefully! =D

    • the Muse

      I’m not sure swt. It shouldn’t be diff from store to online 🙂 maybe they just lowered the price recently?! Hope it’s available for you too during FF 🙂

  • Swt Azn Qt

    Thanks! =D I think Sephora might have jacked up the prices in the US stores as well because someone on their FB page was complaining about how things used to cost a bit less before but are a bit more expensive now, I wonder why…since I thought that they only do that for us Canadians only…but nevertheless…I still think that the way Sephora jacks up almost everything and more costingly than the US is just not right either way…=( You’re sooo luckie to live in the US and how you can fling your money on sooo many cosmetic products! I wish I was as luckie as you are, in being able to own sooo many items! =P Too bad I’ve never gotten a Sephora gift card! =(

    • the Muse

      interesting I didn’t notice swt. eep! aw hope a friend or family member gifts you soon hun!!!!!!!

  • Swt Azn Qt

    Awww, thanks sweetie! =D Yeah, I believe Sephora took it down after minutes of it being posted because it was no longer on the page anymore, when I checked a few minutes later at that time…!

  • Lauren Morgan

    I’m doomed. I’m going to be poor forever if they don’t hide all this Hello Kitty stuff from me!
