Sunshine Cuties Music is a sensuous floral developed by perfumer Richard Herpin; the notes include pear, Granny Smith apple, freesia, tiger orchid, jasmine, honeysuckle, cashmere woods, creamy musk and precious woods.

Sunshine Cuties Baby is a dewy floral from perfumer Clement Gavarry with notes of mandarin, wet neroli, sunflower, white poppy, living valencia, orange flower, jasmine, musk, vetiver and birch woods.

    The little dollies are cute. But I was shocked this morning to see two posts of summer/spring fragrances. Do they usually start promoting so soon? For a short time I was obsessed with the original HL but once I bought one I realized I couldn’t wear the fragrance. If I had a cute little neice I would definitely buy her one of the Snowbunnies for X-mas. I will, at leat, smell these whenever they come out at Macy’s.

    P.S. I am new to posting at NST (have been reading for a while). How do I change my icon/avatar thingy?

    • Robin says:

      Hi & welcome! Note that both of these were sourced from trade and not consumer publications — so no, they don’t usually start promoting to consumers this early.

    Well, yesterday there was some disagreement over most cutesy name. I’m going to throw down the gauntlet again and declare that HL are the most cutesy bottles in all of Perfumedom.

    • miss kitty v. says:

      Hard to argue with that!

      Hey, at least these are new formulations, not just new bottles. Gotta give them props for that.

      • miss kitty v. says:

        The second part of my comment wasn’t directed at Rustic, BTW. Just something random I added on. I don’t think my Ambien has worn off yet, so if I’m not making sense, blame it on that.

        • RusticDove says:

          You make perfect sense Miss Kitty V.

    • Robin says:

      Yep, I’ll agree with that.

  3. sarah24 says:

    I’m glad that the perfumes are new – surprised that they’re doing the summer thing though!

    • Robin says:

      I sort of expected them to after the Snow Bunnies, but agree: glad they changed the juice!

  4. Amanda says:

    Yep they’re very cutsey, but as soon as I read the words ‘coconut water’ they were added to my must-test list :)

    • Robin says:

      The “regular” G was already coconut-y, and I thought it was the best of the original set.

    • RusticDove says:

      I did not mean cutesy in a critical sense – I think they’re adorable! ;-)

  5. jonr951 says:

    Im not a fan of the 10ml bottles. 5 sprays and its pretty much done for! And for 30 bucks! I haven’t even given in to any of the 30ml. I liked G and Lil Angel. I’ll try them when I see them but it sounds like I’ll be liking the originals more. Except the new Baby & Love. I hated the original ones so heres hoping these ones are better.

    • Robin says:

      Have a feeling they’re selling better, though…and that’s probably why they’ve done both of the new sets only in the smaller size.

  6. Absolute Scentualist says:

    Oh I want these! They’re soooo cute, and I usually don’t go for cute. But there’s just something about them… I tried telling my DH I wanted to buy them for my daughter but he knew better. I haven’t resorted to underhanded campaign tactics and shown them to her yet to get her on my side, but I know he wouldn’t say no to *her* if she said she wanted them so that’s my ace in the hole. ;)

    • Robin says:

      LOL…hope that works!

  7. alltheprettythings says:

    I’m trying to imagine a Citrus gourmand and failing.

    They are too cute… but I wouldn’t pay for the 30 ml size either. Better to just get a couple samples, the perfume solid when it comes out and call it a HL day. :)

    • Robin says:

      Histoires de Parfums makes one, but forget what it’s called.

  8. sarah24 says:

    It would be nice to see them in set a bit cheaper than the full price…I hate it when sets come out ages after the release!
    It took me ages to make my mind up about the original G…I love it now but prefer Lil Angel and Music! I love all the fantasy perfumes and I think they’re a similar kind of smell.

    • Robin says:

      There is a set for the Snow Bunnies for $100, so they’ll probably do one for these too.

    citrus gourmand

    RIIIIIGGGGHHHHHT up my alley

    • Robin says:

      Worth a try then!

  10. parfumliefhebber says:

    The bottles are really cute. I have never seen them.

    • Robin says:

      They’re just as cute in person, if you like little plastic dolls.

  11. teachesofpeaches says:

    i saw the dollies at saks and yes they are wonderful i can imagine giving this as a present and be completely a winner !
    i smelled some , too light for me , but for a teenager would be amazing , ten years ago and i would have got them all !!!!!
    i remember a post about someone looking for a perfume to give to her little flower girls at her weeding i say we have a winner !!!!!
    but i must add the dollies are rather big and heavy .

    • Robin says:

      Yes, they’re mostly geared towards young girls. I bought the solids though, because the plastic heads cracked me up.

  12. zaheer says:

    haha i know my niece would love these, it’s different from other lame offererings… I can’t wait for 2012 when it comes to Africa.

    • Robin says:

      Whew, that’s a long wait.

  13. zaheer says:

    I might be exaggerating a bit, but thats how it feels sometimes ;p

  14. jonr951 says:

    Theyre fine. Not very memorable. G smells just like the original. Love and Baby are an improvement from the originals. Lil Angel and Music were fine. I really dont remember them at all and I just smelled them this evening. O well.

    • Robin says:

      I smelled them very quickly on paper, and I promptly forgot them too :-)

  15. jonr951 says:

    I smelled them again 2day and the only 2 I care for are G and Love. The rest are a bore. Well more of a bore then G and Love. I’d wear Love happily if someone gave me a bottle. It’s the yummiest of the bunch! : )

    • Robin says:

      You are more persistent than I am — I gave them the one shot and that’s all they’re getting, LOL…

  16. jonr951 says:

    LOL. Ure hilarious!! I couldnt resist their too dang cuteness!! : )

  17. Sugar_Celebi says:

    I didn’t know the fragrances had changed until I bought them, so I put on G (which I’ve actually been wearing for the past 2 years…haha) one morning and was surprised to find a different smell. I don’t like the summer edition, it kind of makes me feel sick. It isn’t really THAT different but since I’ve been wearing the old one for so long the change was immediately apparent!
