Fresh Hesperides vs. Sugar Lychee

21 Feb

Hesperides by Fresh smells like a pleasantly scented grapefruit Summer magic play set or unicorn toy for girls. It smells like a grapefruit vitamin C lozenge (minus the menthol). It is sweet, though not in a cloying or excessively cheap way, but there is no depth whatsoever to this fragrance. It is a matte, pale yellow grapefruit pillow. It would be a nice first perfume for a girl between the ages of 8 and 12.

If I had to choose between Hesperides and Sugar Lychee, I would definitely go with the Sugar Lychee. Though it is also synthetic, somewhat linear and lacking in depth, something about that particular rendition of lychee makes it fresh, palatable, and quite memorable, capable of transcending the boundaries of its target audience. It’s a tall glass of pink lemonade Kool-aid. Sometimes that’s just what the heart wants.
