About this deal

It's the kind of fragrance that I imagine would smell even better on skin during balmy, summer nights. This perfume doesn't last very long at all, maybe 2-3 hours at most, which is a shame and it's the main thing that lets it down for me. Read about this perfume in other languages: Deutsch, Español, Français, Čeština, Italiano, Русский, Polski, Português, Ελληνικά, 汉语, Nederlands, Srpski, Română, العربية, Українська, Монгол, עברית. Setting wise, this works for the casual girl, but could easily be worn for a night out (especially in the warmer seasons) but is pretty and light enough that it suits an office too. The tropical vibe is of course juicy coconut, the sharpness must be the hint of sandalwood making it smell fresh and clean.

This is a great scent that you don't really have to think about, you can just put it on any time of day, season, whatever, and works. I highly recommend the original friction perfume though Its one of the best budget perfumes I have bought and its a new must have for me.The notes: pink honeysuckle, apple blossom, red berries, creamy coconut, spun sugar, vanilla absolute, pink jasmine, white vetiver, blonde woods, sandalwood, amber, magnetic musk.

Could easily be replicated by any sweet, generic and celebrity perfume (it's kinda banal), except for Fancy (of course - the king of kings of caramel-vanilla perfumes).You've smelled this type of scent before in an Ed Hardy or Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj fragrance before. At first I get pineapple, perhaps that's a combination of the apple blossom, berries and sugar, then more coconut and vanilla but there is enough spice in this to prevent it becoming sickly sweet. When to the chemist warehouse and tested it, smelt alright at first but then turned into a sticky, cheap smell on my skin. The spray top is so small that when looking at it atop a beige shoulder for which it sits, kind of reminds me of a pin head on top of drooped shoulders. It lasts on me a good 24 hours, which is amazing on its own, but on top of that, it "builds" on the skin, and so the more I wear it, the more the coconutty base clings to me.

Although Friction is not likely an expensive fragrance anywhere in the world, I could easily spend much less on a nice spray. On my skin this is a smooth creamy dip of vanilla bean soft serve ice cream, topped off with an abundance of yummy sweet toasted coconut sprinkles. I don't hate this though, its very clean and gentle, like soft clean pineapple scented skin but I don't really like it either. When I first put it on, it struck me that I smelled just like the little drop of nectar in a honeysuckle flower! I must say I will leave this one for summer and as we have just come into winter don't think the cooler weather does this perfume justice.Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item.

My first impression is disappointment, as I can barely detect the creamy, tropical coconut note that I was hoping would be prominent in this scent.

I was hoping for a beachy, suntan lotion kind of coconut, but what I'm getting is more a sugared synthetic gourmand. The kind of sweetness that comes from straight-up sugar, which is not my preference in food or perfume.
