Sunshine Cutie G comes in a cute bottle, with the doll on top wearing a "tuxedo" bikini top and blue-green swim shorts. There is a picture of plumeria flowers on the package and in her hair. This version of G sports new notes of (from Amazon) mandarin, coconut water, heliotrope, and vanilla bean. Now, when I bought these, I had no idea. I sniffed Love, and it smelled too floral, but their were no testers, so I took a chance with G.
At first sniff, G smells ridiculously of coconut. With a weird floral note behind it. And I was not pleased. But after a while (or was it just the influence of other reviews I saw online?) it began to grow on me. The coconut faded; yes, it still smelled like a beach, but now it was drier, will vanilla and more florals backing it up. It's a warm scent, sweeter than I would have liked, but still quite lovely.
But now I must warn you. Scents don't really change on me, from the mid notes to the dry down. After about 10 hours, it smells a little less of floral, but that's it. Maybe it's because I have bad circulation or dry skin or whatever, but just saying, so other people know how scents work on me.
Sunshine Cuties G actually reminds me of...Cool Water Woman, because of that last sandalwood/vanilla note. But in a good way. I've heard it compared to Creed's Virgin Island Water, but I wouldn't know. Overall though, it's a good perfume. Lasts only a few hours, but the packaging is as cute as heck.
I did not receive compensation from any company to write this review. My mom bought this for me. XD
