Name That Scent: Charlotte Ronson’s A Perfect Touch

Fragrance reviews are silly. Fragrance marketing is even sillier. So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk.

Fragrance: Charlotte Ronson A Perfect Touch Rollerball Oil, $20

What Charlotte Ronson thinks it smells like: “A fragrance inspired by endless beach days that effortlessly melts into skin.”

What we think it smells like:

  • “A super sweet beach.”
  • “Smells like dish detergent.”
  • “Dish soap, but kind of cheap. Kind of like my super-Trinidadian neighborhood. Like sandalwood!”
  • “Hawaii.”
  • “Linens in a tropical hotel.”
  • “Really flowery. Sunflowers, maybe? My 11th grade girlfriend. I like it. Smells like sunshine.”
  • “Potpourri.”
  • “A bit like cinnamon.”
  • “Like bath soap. Body wash.”
  • “Jasmine. Like those flowers they call the paper whites. Very floral.”
  • “Sunscreen. Definitely summery. Remind me of going to the beach.”
  • “Vaguely of sunscreen.”
  • “Yeah, pure sunscreen. Like I’m trapped in a car with a family that just left the beach.”

Tune in next time when we review Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Living Stromboli, which “bursts with an utter feeling of summer, precious pastimes, and true delight”.
