    The women’s one sounds interesting… one I am curious to sample, anyway, which is more than I can say for most scents these days. The coconut sounds out of place though… this will either be interesting or scary and it’s hard to tell which!

    • Robin says:

      I’m in the scared category, LOL…but the men’s sounds better to me.

      • mandaluv says:

        It would be great if the blackberry, pomegranate and tangerine notes are tart and not too sweet… but I suspect that with the addition of coconut it will be sweet. The men’s does sound interesting as well… maybe it will be unique and not smell just like every other men’s frag (or maybe I am hoping for too much LOL).

        • Robin says:

          We’ll see! I liked the 2nd of the Ed Hardy scents for women…so I have some hope :-)

  2. Daisy says:

    I’m having a “shallow moment” —I love that blue glass…purty.

    • mals86 says:

      Now, see, I liked the red one! Garnet, my birthstone. OTOH, the fragrance doesn’t interest me at all.

    • Robin says:

      I am not loving either. (grumble)

      • alltheprettythings says:

        Me either, but I really like the boxes.

  3. Viraj Vyas says:

    The bottle is AWESOME :P

    • miss kitty v. says:

      I agree. But again–disappointed by who is making it. Audigier is a marketing whore, as far as I’m concerned, so I don’t expect anything he makes to be anything other than mediocre.

    • Robin says:

      Not my taste, but would guess many people will love them!

  4. Absolute Scentualist says:

    The womens looks okay save for the coconut, but the mens looks more interesting, though neither one will have me stalking the stores until they’re released. I might do a drive-by (or walk-by) sniffing if they’re around, but they sound similar enough to most other new releases that I won’t be heartbroken if I don’t find them.

    • Robin says:

      I’m sure they’ll be easy to find…probably in all the same stores as the Ed Hardy scents.

  5. miss kitty v. says:

    There are two things that are keeping me from taking this seriously:
    1.)It’s another fruity floral for women! Hurray! Can’t have too much of that!
    2.) It’s Christian Audigier.

    Next…

  6. ZenArcade says:

    Maybe I’m the odd woman out on this, but I think those bottles — especially with the little crown caps — are trying WAY too hard to be luxe, unless they’re going for a sort of trashy/fun aesthetic. Neither scent sounds all that interesting to me.

    • Robin says:

      I think trashy/fun is the CA aesthetic?

  7. Rictor07 says:

    The bottle looks like plastic to me, not glass. And who the heck is Ed Hardy anyway?

    • Robin says:

      A tattoo artist who has licensed CA to use his designs in clothing & whatnot.

  8. Amanda says:

    I like the sound of the spices in the men’s… and I must admit that I’m a sucker for coconut :)

    • Robin says:

      Maybe they’ll work layered :-)

      • Amanda says:

        Yep…
        Such a simple idea, but I was a bit slow on the uptake :)

  9. thenoseknows says:

    Shocking! The Ed Hardy Fragrances Smell Linear and Cheap in the extreme if not on the right person (Thankfully i have smelled them on such said person… but otherwise… ACK ICK GAG!) These, suprisingly sound very wearable and very sophisticated (CLUTCH THE PEARLS!) I am almost certain to buy the mens without smelling it because the notes are so good (wish the coconut was in the mens version, but alas…) and i do SO LOVE Tangerine and Coconut in any fragrance… with the Magnolia and Sandalwood… sounds awfully promising!

    And Yes, Those Bottles are Absolutely Gorgeous!

    • Robin says:

      Looks like the bottles are “love em or hate em”!

  10. I consider the bottles as enormous ugly and tacky.

    Next.

    • alltheprettythings says:

      They look cheap.

    • Robin says:

      Agree. Looks like some people love them though.

  11. jonr951 says:

    Got to try them both 2day at Macys. I like the bottles much more in person. I liked them. The mens i liked alot more then the womans. The womans is your standard fruity floral but i like it. I might have to give in to one of them.

    • Robin says:

      The men’s even sounds better than the women’s.

    • mandashell says:

      Hey, give in to the womens you won’t regret it. LOL! Didn’t smell the mens now I have to go back and sniff it too. ;’)

  12. mandashell says:

    I bought this Friday and love it!! Went to Macy’s to buy a new perfume and walked away with this one. That bottle caught my attention and after spraying it I had to have it. Didn’t even know that is was Ed Hardy. The red part of the bottle is pretty but the gold is plastic and a little tacky, lol. I absolutely love the combo of the top notes but the other notes really do hold their own. The drydown is woodsy and sweet but not too sweet. The perfume is really balanced actually. My skin is very dry so it is rare when a perfume actually lasts on me. This perfume last for 4-6hrs easily on my skin. This is easily his best fragrance. The first one was so sweet it made me sick and the second one smelled too much like light blue. Christian Audigier for women is a welcome addition to my perfume wardrobe. ;’)

    • Robin says:

      So glad you found a winner! But I was worried that gold stuff was going to be tacky in person ;-)

    • BOOKY1 says:

      COULDN’T HAVE SAID IT BETTER MYSELF

  13. jonr951 says:

    While at Macys today one of the ladies told me Ed Hardys new ones are coming out later this yr. I think she said they were called Hearts & Daggers. Heres hoping there as nice as his previous. I really enjoyed the original mens and the Love & Luck for women.

    • Robin says:

      Yeah, I heard there were more but not the name. Hearts & Daggers is cute. The only one I’ve liked so far is Love & Luck for women.

  14. BOOKY1 says:

    I WAS SHOPPING FOR A NEW FRAGRANCE AND SAW THE NEW CHRISTIAN AUDIGIER…..SRAYED SOME ON AN INSTANTLY FELL IN LOVE…..THIS ONE IS A KEEPER FOR ME

    • Robin says:

      Glad you like it :-)

  15. jonr951 says:

    OK the womans smells just like Siren which smells just like Viva La Juicy! Its another copycat but I like CA over Siren. But Siren is cheaper so thats a plus.

    • Robin says:

      I have a sample of the CA but I’m so behind…must try it soon!

  16. jonr951 says:

    I found Hearts & Daggers on moodiereport. Im not in luv w/ the bottles. The notes sound ok. The mens sounds better. I dont think the womens is gonna be better then Love & Luck. Im hoping the mens is better then the 3 others.

    • Robin says:

      Yes, saw those but didn’t have time to announce them today. Don’t like what they did with the bottle either.

    • Anne from Makeupwoot says:

      I sampled Hearts and Daggers last Saturday and it smelled like what I can only describe as “Death by Strawberry.”

  17. APassionateJourney says:

    This smells just like Viva La Juicy. Wow. An exact replica. At least Siren was a softer VLJ

    • Robin says:

      VLJ sold, so it makes sense!

  18. Anne from Makeupwoot says:

    I just picked up the women’s fragrance last night and I have to say that I think I’m in love. It’s a wonderful fruity floral that doesn’t smell like it was engineered for 8 year olds. Pleasant and sexy enough that at 30 I don’t feel ashamed for spritzing it on like I do with Ed Hardy for Women or even sniffing something with Britney Spears’ name slapped on it.
