The Sephora Disney Ariel Collection for Fall 2013 includes the Sephora Disney Ariel Kiss The Girl Eau de Parfum Spray ($58 USD / $70 CAD for 50mL) and Rollerball ($19 USD / $23 CAD for 6mL). This limited-edition collection experiences the magical story of Princess Ariel from The Little Mermaid and captures the ethereal, vibrant colors depicted in the treasured film. The collection will be available from Sephora online this month and in store August 2013.
Each of the Sephora Disney Ariel Collection items come with a quote inspired by the spirit of Ariel herself- the one for the spray fragrance is “all it takes is one kiss” and the rollerball is “true love is beyond words“.
Fragrance is very much a personal preference, and no matter how objective I try to be when reviewing them, I strongly encourage each one of you to try to smell it or at least research the notes to make your own decision. It is a very fresh, aquatic fragrance. Cinderella was more floral and Jasmine was more sweet. This fragrance opens with bergamot, cucumber and ozonic accord, then leads to water, lilac and starfruit notes, and finishing with sandalwood and ambergris. I find the middle notes to be the most prevalent and dominant.
I tend to gravitate towards fresh, floral fragrances, so this one isn’t exactly my cup of tea. However, I definitely enjoy it much more than sweet fragrances. It’s clean and quite strong- and I like the fact that the rollerball is also an Eau de Parfum and not a fragrance oil- I find it has a much more intense scent that lasts longer. I found it to smell much nicer on the skin than in the bottle as well- so make sure to actually try it on when deciding.
The packaging is gorgeous- even though I find it a little odd that they continued the same fragrance bottle packaging since Cinderella (I thought the pumpkin carriage shape was appropriate for her, but perhaps not the other princesses).
