I love waking up to this fragrance on weekends and have been known to place it on my bedside for a cheeky sleep in! It's filled with clean and crispy notes which are rounded out nicely with a touch of vanilla. The vanilla is neither imitation or offensive - it's very subtle. Definitely one that most people will enjoy and I have given it as a gift a few times with great reception.
This is one of those fragrances you either love or hate. I was a fan, however a few of my friends commented that it gave them a headache and that they found it offensive. It is definitely one that you want to sample before purchasing.
I really didn't enjoy this fragrance at all when testing, so much that I didn't bother purchasing it to test the fragrance in a setting within my home. An overload of lemongrass, it really is overpowering and sadly, slightly offensive.
Rio is hands down in my top 3 favourite GH fragrances. I LOVE the strong smell of passionfruit which literally smells like fresh fruit, not a chemical replica. This fragrance is one of my everyday use candles because I just love the scent so much! Lots of my friends have been known to smell this in the shops and say "that's your house smell" and I am literally living for that.
I bought this as a gift for a friend, purely because of the name of the fragrance (she has an obsession with everything New York!). She loved the name and then opened the bottle to smell the fragrance and fell in love. It's a very pleasant smell that isn't overpowering or offensive. Definitely one to think about for a cute, subtle room fragrance.
