Cloud by Ariana Grande

The Cloud perfume is joyful with a dreamy bottle design which is unique compared to Ariana’s existing fragrances. Just like Baccarat Rouge 540 it is a very sweet scent which might make it better suited to those who are younger. If you prefer a more mature scent this might not be the best option for you.

Popstar Grande says:

I love the peaceful beauty of clouds – they are both magical and comforting at the same time. I wanted to create this amazing feeling of hope and happiness, and share it with my fans everywhere. That’s what CLOUD is for me – a beautiful, optimistic scent to give love and comfort to anyone that sprays it.

According to the notes, it seems Grande’s fragrance may be more complex compared to Baccarat Rouge 540.

Baccarat Rouge 540 Vs Cloud Reviews

Are you after a super detailed in-depth review? No worries we’ve collated some for you.

The Verdict

While the notes may look different between both fragrances we can confirm they smell very similar. Admittedly they do dry down slightly differently with Cloud smelling a touch sweeter but it is a very minor variation between both perfumes. Some fans even claim that Cloud has much longer staying power with Baccarat Rouge 540 only lasting 4 hours allegedly.

Based on the whopping price difference it seems a no brainer that Ari’s Cloud perfume wins this battle.
