Disney Kiss the Girl Eau de Parfum
Disney Kiss the Girl Eau de Parfum

Disney Kiss the Girl Eau de Parfum ($58.00 for 1.7 fl. oz.; $19.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “refreshing burst of bergamot, wet cucumber, and ozonic accord, and is brought to life with a splash of water notes, wild lilac, and starfruit, all fused together with warm sandalwood and … ambergris.”

It begins with a blast of bergamot–intensely floral–followed by a cloyingly sweet cucumber note. While I like the freshness and crispness that cucumber can add to a scent, when it’s sweet, it reads very synthetic and oddly placed (almost a stale sweetness). The cucumber, halfway through, is more prominent than the bergamot. The fragrance, overall, was sweet, floral, and aquatic. My personal scent preference is towards sandalwood and amber, but I didn’t pick up either of those two scents; at no point while I wore it was it anything other than bergamot and sweet cucumber. It might be because the scent wears away surprisingly quickly on my skin; it is noticeable and has good sillage for the first hour, but by the second hour, it wears closely to the skin. By the third hour, I couldn’t even detect any more. Normally, the average perfume lasts eight hours on me, with some lasting as long as sixteen (to some degree).

Scent is inherently personal, so if you enjoy either bergamot or cucumber, you may like this.  If you were intrigued by the idea of sandalwood and ambergris, I’d recommend trying to sniff it in-store prior to purchasing.  The rollerball-size is a frosted, aqua bottle with silver seaweed, while the full-size fragrance is in a clear, faceted crystal bottle (just like the perfumes for Cinderella and Jasmine) with clear juice.

    Bergamot and cucumber sounds like a Bath and Body scent. Not my thing if you like sandalwood check out Tom Ford’s Santal Blush perfume. Smells great to me but expensive!

  5. Christine, the three hours of wear was from the spray? Cheaper perfume sprays without a good adhesive carrier usually don’t last well on me either (with the fanciest EDP sprays I’ve tried lasting about 9 hours and the cheapest lasting about 3 or 4.) I had good luck with the Jasmine oil lasting longer though, so I hope Ariel is the same.

    • Hi Stephanie,

      I had three hours with both – they wore exactly the same on me! As far as I know, they’re both Eau de Parfum, just different in size!

    I had such high hopes for the Ariel collection. I am so disappointed in what they have shown so far. So bummed it’s the last one!

    At least I have gotten a lot of enjoyment of of the Princess Jasmine perfume spray. IMO, Jasmine’s bottle is prettier than Ariel’s.

  7. I have never heard of this disney perfume line until now! I never purchase perfume online because I need to smell it first, so I am going to hunt this down :-) Yes part of me wants a disney princess perfume only because it is disney princess! haha Great post and review.
