Description

The vanilla in this is not a gourmand vanilla to me, it's there but doesn't smell like the vanilla cupcake scent that I adore. After a week of owning it, I gave it to a friend, and when I complemented her on her gorgeous smell one day, it turns out it was this. Anyway, this is a gourmand scent - it kinda reminds me of a pina colada - pineapple, coconut and condensed milk.

It's even a bit tart in a way, the initial herbal note transforms into a 'sour' whiff, but not strong enough to be detectable (grape, citrus, etc. I'm going to see how this develops but if the scent doesn't change significantly, then it won't be for me.The amber really starts to sparkle, too, as though the time in the sun gives way to sunset, signaling the beginning of a fantastic vacation evening. This also has similarities to the Harajuku Lovers Pop Electric G but that one has a very heavy woodsy note in it that takes over the entire perfume. Some people say they don't get any florals from this but I can definitely tell there is some apple blossom and honeysuckle in this.

I just grabbed the bottle now from my collection, thinking my version was as usual for FCUK an EDT, instead it is an EDP. If you have any negative feeling towards sandalwood, I wouldn't bother with this one, even if it seems like a tempting cheapie. It is sweet and creamy but I also think it has a freshness to it from the florals which stops it from becoming too cloyingly sweet. I decided to stop at Perfumania at lunch to sniff around and after only smelling this on a strip of paper, I grabbed the last 3. True, it is a very subtle drydown, but we deal with some serious heat and humidity and I appreciate the light, breezy, yet still quite feminine qualities of Friction.

Overall though, there’s just enough lotiony vanilla and coconut to make this pleasant when layered with another, less sweet, coconut body wash/lotion/perfume.

The kind of sweetness that comes from straight-up sugar, which is not my preference in food or perfume.It's the kind of fragrance that I imagine would smell even better on skin during balmy, summer nights.

I do prefer this bottle design over the other wedge shaped FCUK flacons, but I still feel the top of this diamond cut bottle a little awkward to use.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. It is a fragrance you need to be patient with to get to the end results, but it is so worth the wait in my opinion.
