First perfume
My first perfume, and a total blind buy because of the bottle and packaging design. I was working at a TJ Maxx in my late teens, just after this was released, and bought a set that included a bottle of Dolly Girl and a matching lotion. I didn’t know at the time that the bottle was based on the work of Michael Economy, who later became one of my favorite illustrators/graphic artists—he’s worked with Sui often, and many other fabulous luminaries such as Deee-lite and Lady Bunny. I’ll keep the bottle forever, but I cannot stand the fragrance itself. Headache-inducing! I tried to wear it, but it always smelled overwhelmingly sweet, powdery and old-fashioned in a dreadful way to me. One of the best bottles there is, though.

The packaging is much more appealing than the scent
I didn't have high expectations prior to testing this fragrance, and not surprisingly I wasn't blown away by this scent.

There was nothing unpleasant about it, but then again there was nothing overly wonderful about it either. Looking at all the unique and interesting notes listed, I'm wondering where all those notes were.

I could definitely not smell cinnamon or melon in the top notes, which is a damn shame, because those notes when blended with the apple and bergamot should have created something interesting. However, I was met with a scent that can only be compared to a cheap drugstore fragrance.

What is supposed to be a beautiful heart of florals, turns out to be so faint that you can hardly smell it. In fact, Dolly Girl hardly lasts at all. It's possibly one of the worst fragrances when it comes to lasting strength.

I didn't get any of the powderyness that everyone is describing here, instead I got a big jumbled mess of fruits and flowers, making it very difficult to distinguish any particular notes.

Although I find the bottle design creative, up close it looks rather cheap and tacky. Unfortunately there's nothing about Dolly Girl that I actually like. Even the name is a little ridiculous and childish.

I haven't tried the other fragrances in the Dolly Girl series, but here's hoping they are much better than the original.
