    These sound like a fruity hot mess! God I’m so done with the fruity florals.

    • Robin says:

      I know absolutely nothing about this brand, but guessing they’re geared young. But also, only one of them sounds like a fruity floral to me…although never possible to tell just from the notes!

  2. Merlin says:

    I WANT all 3 bottles, and don’t care how they smell!

    • Robin says:

      Then I hope you will get them! I wish I had a better shot of the top of the caps…looks like they might be cool but hard to tell.

    • Merlin says:

      lol, I’v never yet bought a perfume for the bottle, but those just look so happy! Somewhere between licorice wheels and LPs:)

      • nancyg says:

        They do look way cute – I’m a sucker for things in sets of colors, but don’t know about the scents… They sound very young…

  3. Holly says:

    I immediately substituted Lingual.

        Oh, thank-you. I don’t need to schedule an MRI.

  4. Marjorie Rose says:

    Oddly, my sex life NEVER includes rhubarb OR grapefruit. . . am I doing something wrong?

    • Robin says:


    • basia says:

      That’s the first thing I thought of Marjorie !

    • ringthing says:

      Oh, that truly made me lol :-)

  5. I was at the Mall of America a few years ago, and was able to stop into one of their stores. I absolutely went ga-ga in there! But the perfume – I think I’ll pass. I’m kind of surprised w/the notes (though if I sampled them, maybe I would be surprised?) because their clothes are really off-the-wall cool – young, yes, but I would wear some of it (if I had the dough as they’re kind of expensive)

    Desigual is a Spanish clothing brand which mixes vibrant patterns and lots of energy. They are similar to what Custo Barcelona used to be at a much better price point. A more price accessible Etro might be a good description.

    I’ve bought several of their shirts and am very interested in sniffing these because they look like fun – and probably cheap thrills. I hope they are in the NYC stores when I am up there for Elements.

    • Holly says:

      Oh yes, you will find Desigual in NYC. I can’t confirm that you’ll find everything you’re looking for in each store, but I hope so. If not, I hope you will enjoy your trip. Please consider yourself already welcomed here.

  7. maggiecat says:

    Rhubarb, grapefruit, tuberose and vanilla – not adding up to sexy in my book. Faint nausea perhaps…Am I just getting old and grumpy? Wait – don’t answer that!

  8. scentfromabove says:

    I immediately saw the bottles and thought that they were very visually-stimulating. They are definitely pretty and got my attention. Then I read the notes for each bottle and the descriptions made me automatically think that this line is for teenage girls. I think if these were sold at Victoria Secret “Pink” or Bath and Body Works, they would sell like hotcakes. I work at a school and would definitely not want to smell like the students. I would probably pass on this. And I would definitely be embarrassed to have a bottle of “Sex” in my bag and a student sees it and goes home and tells their parents.

  9. lenika says:

    I want them all too! “You smell nice, what’s this perfume? -Sex!” lol

    There are 2 Desigual stores in mid-town Manhattan. Their clothes are very colorful and if I recall, quite affordable. It caters to the younger set (20s). The only thing I lusted over was their shopping tote but alas, I couldn’t justify buying anything just so I can get one of those bags.

    The perfume bottles look cool and I may stop in one of the stores to check them out. The perfumes sound like they would be thin and chemically-sweet…no, just No.
