Smells like a box of banana pudding when you mix it up. Has a very slight chemical after smell when 1st sprayed, not enough to overpower or intrude on the fragrance. Was hoping it would have a little bit more of a green vanilla smell mixed within...but pretty much just smells like straight banana pudding.
Delicious fruity adult beverage smell. First note I smell is a really true fresh guava smell. Out of the 10 Demeter fragrances I recently purchased, this is by far my favorite. Not the normal "tropical fruity" smell. Kind of smells like mangi bubble yum mixed in. Sent doesn't last long but is very pleasant. Doesn't have any weird after smell like some other Demeter scents I have tried.
Not sure what Cuba should smell like. I imagined a salty ocean, cigar, tropical fruit/flower, and old cars smell. But really to me it smells pretty one dimensional like sweet unrolled vanilla tobacco. I imagine an older man who still has alot of hair, is in pretty good shape, and has alot of free time to do cool stuff would smell like this. Like the dude from the Dos XX's commercial, Anthony Bourdain, or Indiana Jones might smell like this.
I really wanted to love this smell. But it smells like a chemical, kids character imitation vanilla, $1 body spray. Will have to try some of their other desert smells, but this one is a no for me. Glad I only bought the sample.
Was sent this fragrance as a free gift with my purchase from Demeter. Smells like a combination of Green Irish Soap and Grass. Smells good for what it is. Not a smell that I particularly care for, so I haven't found a use for it yet. If you like the smell of soap and Grass, then you may enjoy.
Smells like sunscreen with some kind of floral sent. And not sunscreen in a goodway, smells like sunscreen that says it doesn't smell like sunscreen. Also not a tanning oil smell. Does not smell like sunshine, smells like an older lady who wears Avon sunscreen and Avon mosquito spray on her evening walk to the stop sign at 630pm when it's not too hot outside... Not really sure how to describe the smell but not a fan.
Mixed feelings!!! I picked this up while shopping at Walgreens. I saw the display, remembered Ive seen several youtubers review or mention this foundation... so i bought it to try it out. #1 Packaging defective - First time opening the whole top lid part came off. I was like what the hell, well thats not good. #2 Smell - Soon as I put the foundation on my skins, I noticed the smell of the foundation...which is not a good smell. I dont really know how to describe the smell, it's off-putting. YES, I know the product is 'inexpensive"...but it smells like the cheap makeup I bought when I was a kid at the .99 cent store or maybe like school paint. Idk but I didnt like the smell. #3 Application - I actually really liked the application. Im a finger blender and it worked well. I dont like full coverage on a day to day basis. This was buildable in the areas where I have some light discoloration and still looked even in the areas where I used a light overlay of the product. #4 Look of product on skin - I thought the foundation looked really nice, color matched well. Matt look, im not normally a strong "matt" look type, but i like it. Looks matt almost instantly. #5 Wear of Product - Seemed to not dry down for a REALLY LONG TIME! Maybe like an hour and the foundation still felt sticky, even after powdering, still had this sticky slightly wet feel on face. Not great for blending other products on top like blush, contour/bronze, highlight, etc. Wear time b4 breaking down on a normal 8 hour work day, seemed to show signs of break down around chin ans nose before the day was over. #6 BREAKOUT CITY!!! I dont have breakouts, almost never ever even when I was a teen. IF I so get a blemish it would be before/during my cycle and it would be in my chin or mouth area. I never break out on cheeks, forehead, nose NOT IN THE HISTORY of life. I dont have sensitive skin, i dont even have any blemish medication/products for me because all I use is anti-aging stuff. After 1 straight week of use I had a big pimple come up on my cheek, I didnt it relate that pimple to the product until yesterday I felt ANOTHER godzilla size pimple coming through on my cheek on the other side of my face. Today its here in all its glory. NO, I know its this foundation breaking my skin out. Wont be putting it on another time to test the theory, going in the trash! Spend a few more dollars and buy a product with some skin beneficial ingredients!
