Etude House Strawberry Eau de Perfume

Etude House Berry Delicious Strawberry Eau de Perfume is a new, limited edition fragrance that launched with the Etude House Berry Delicious Makeup Collection for Spring 2016.

I couldn’t resist and I did indeed purchase the Etude House Berry Delicious Strawberry Eau de Perfume for myself even though I’ve had kinda bad experiences with Korean brand fragrances before. Thing is, many Korean brands introduce fragrances that kinda smell like Charmin Toilet Paper. Ah, thanks but no thanks!

So even knowing this I decided I check out the Berry Delicious Perfume anyway as I was hoping for some Strawberry Shortcake-like experience.

Etude House Berry Delicious Strawberry Eau de Perfume

I was wrong about the Charmin Toilet Paper thankfully but I was also wrong about the Strawberry Shortcake experience too!

Etude House Berry Delicious Strawberry Eau de Perfume comes in a 1 oz glass bottle decorated with little strawberries. It’s quite cute but also very childish as well and reminds me of some of the perfumes in the 80’s that were sold at drugstores. Remember Barbie had a fragrance? And Hello Kitty, Minnie Mouse, etc….It reminds me of one of those kiddie fragrances. It’s cute for sure but most people will think it looks and smells rather cheap.

I was expecting a super sweet strawberry fragrance perhaps something along the lines of a strawberry scented car air freshener but the strawberry note is actually really faint here. The top notes are strawberry, raspberry, and orange with a heart of peach, jasmine, and muguet lily and a base of musk and sandalwood. For me it smells like Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea mixed with a little bit of freesia. It’s very sweet and fruity with some calmer floral notes. It’ll likely give sensitive users a headache in all honest and smells quite cheap and childish! It does have a good linger with about three spritzes and a nice throw with a last of about six hours before reapplication is needed.

Sorry Etude House, no likey!

Etude House Berry Delicious Strawberry Eau de Perfume isn’t for me.

Anyone else try it?

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.

    omg the toilet paper smell! Totally made me laugh, cuz I thought I was the only one who ever noticed it! I HATE when perfumes do that!!! The worst offender for me was Lovely by SJP. Smells great on other people, but straight up Quilted Northern on me.

      haha! It happens more times than not in Korea! Thankfully I have yet to experience it here in the US PHEW!

    Oh sad. I love strawberry scents. Have you found any that are true strawberry? 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      Try Lathers and Lights! They have some crazy lovely strawberry fragrances!

            Oooh! I too love the idea of a strawberry fragrance.

            Do you find the L&L fragrances last well? Oil or perfume is better, do you think?

            Am drooling over their scent list! Must try some. 🙂

            They last very well! I used their shampoo and conditioner and I feel like I don’t have to wash my hair for a month because the fragrance lingers and lingers and lingers (Not that I’d go without washing my hair a month lol)! I use the perfume and they have excellent through and linger! The oils are equally nice!

    I wish this had been better as i have always wanted a great strawberry perfume, not like bath and body works stuff, but a real honest to goodness authentic strawberry scent. I am burning strawberry incense at the moment, and i wish i could bottle this exact fragrance because it is perfect!

    Thanks so much Muse! Off to order! 🙂 (Hadn’t even thought to try the shampoo!)
