In September 2008 Gwen Stefani, in cooperation with Cot, prepares to launch a surprise of five fragrance collection devoted to Harajuku fans. The fragrances come in a form of cute small dolls, each of which has its own personality, style, and fragrant note.

There had to be five fragrances as each of them represents different styles of women. Each of the dolls consists of two parts. The upper part is the doll itself, fitted on a pedestal-like glass base filled with the fragrance. The outer boxes give a story of the perfume doll enclosed inside.

Harajuku Lovers collection includes fragrances , Lil' Angel, Music, Baby and G, and each of them is devoted to one of her back vocals, Harajuku Girls, reflecting their fashion and life styles, while one represents her.

G, (the first letter of Gwen's name) is a modern and lively scent, created by Steve Demercado. It features mandarin, fresh coconut, and apple peel in the top, jasmine sambac, freesia and magnolia in the heart, and coconut cream, white sandalwood and cottonwoods.

Harajuku Lovers G Fragrance Reviews

This is a strong creamy sweet coconut scent. If you're not a fan of coconut then go for this one, because it's the most prominent note in G - appears right on spray and stays dominant until it's completely gone from your skin. It has got a lovely tropical undertone, creates the perfect illusion of having a superb holiday in the Caribbean or somewhere equally fantastic paradise. I would say this is a simple yet quite charming fragrance. Sillage is okay, longevity is average.

I had this back when I was in high school and I loved it...I didn't actually know what it was called for a long time, as it was a gift. I called it "coconut prostitute" because the juice smelled like coconuts, and the doll....well...you get the picture...but I still thought it was cute and adored it and then one day I lost it :( It's a very sad story.

I've had this perfume for a while and had never really delved into it because it has been discontinued, so I was trying to use it sparingly. That being said, I thought my cruise to the Bahamas would be the perfect time to bring it out.
First off, let me just admit to what we're all thinking. This bottle is freakin' adorable!! The Gwen-meets-Alice in Wonderland style is just too cute and I love that it coincides with Gwen's outfit she wore on the cover of Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and in the "What You Waiting For?" video. Very creative and very trendy at the time it was released.
The fragrance is a lovely, tropical coconut scent, however, there is something in it that makes it slightly too cloudy. I'm not sure if what I'm detecting is the cotton, but that would make some sense, I suppose. It makes me like this perfume a little less than I'd like to, especially because my skin makes some perfume muskier and cloudier, so between the two, it becomes a little too much for me to love. However, that being said, the rest of the fragrance is very lovely and is like vacation in a bottle - quite literally for me, now that I've worn it on my tropical vacation.
Perhaps, though, my greatest beef with this perfume is its ridiculously short longevity. At least, on me, this fragrance does not last long, which makes it harder to wear during the summer. This is less of a problem in cooler climates, but seeing as this is definitely a summer-only fragrance to me, it's a problem. Especially because this scent reminds me of Las Vegas and I hope to bring it with me on my next trip down there, let's just say, my Travalo will be seeing some action.
All this being said, I do like this perfume quite a lot. I can't say I love it due to its cloudiness and poor performance, but it is still lovely, and I'll be attempting to use it up soon so I can display it on my bookshelf in the light where it belongs.
Overall, I'll give this a fair 7/10. Not the best summer perfume out there, but definitely still a fun one.

I fell hard for this one, and knew it was being discontinued and stocked up. If you store them properly they will last. Just use them in the summer! I hate when you love something they go ahead and dumb it down. Rich coconut and buttery. Really great! I also have the dark haired one, which I love that one also. The other's didn't work on me. I could hardly pull this fragrance up on Fragrantica, probably because it's discontinued? I guess re-inventing and re-inventing is the way to make big $$$. But Chanel No. 5 has been around forever and some other lines too. I guess when a celebrity has their name attached to it, it's a hit for only so long. Unless of course, your name is Elizabeth Taylor! Although, I'll admit I don't have any of her's. But my God, what a beautiful woman!

The opening blast is bright & fruity with the scents of mandarin orange and apple peels, which, after a brief moment, recede as a musty-dusty aroma of coconut & sandalwood flows in.

After a minute or two, however, the fragrance mellows as the note of cotton becomes prominent. From here, it becomes smooth, and warm. There is, by this point, a bare hint of sweetness, but more than anything, there is a distinct scent like that of clean cotton sheets (as meaning the actual smell of cotton as compared to the typical laundry detergent scent) blended with coconut cream.

The florals listed really are minor players in this fragrance, and seem only to make a brief appearance sometime during the phase where coconut and sandalwood meet cotton, and are fading out by the time of the drydown, where the cotton note becomes strongest.

I bought the solid perfume collection set and I didn't like it at all. Not because of the fragrances, it's more because I can't get much of a fragrance. I don't know if it's because of the consistency of the solid perfume or because they are getting old. But what I can sense with this one is creamy coconut and some sweet and flowers. I really like it but if I got the opportunity I will buy a bottle.

Just got my second mini bottle of G and I still love this sent! If you love coconut, then this is perfect for you. Definitely a fun summer sent. It's very tropical and sweet but doesn't linger very long and the sent is not strong at all. But just like my last review, I noticed (with the mini's at least) the bottles tend to peel and look extremely worn over time. I think that would be the only downfall i see with this fragrance line. As long as the bottles are taken care of, there should be no problem and it's an amazing collectors piece.

This perfume is just so one-note to me. Coconut and apple, which dries down to a barely noticeable orange. I guess I don't like the monotonous coconut in this one? It reminds me of the lime coconut room freshener that they sell at Walmart. Ick.
Edit: Alright, alright. I've went back and tried this one again. Maybe I was too harsh.
It does have quite a bit of cotton in it, and its much more creamy than I remember it.
Still, it's not something I'd want to smell like.
Maybe an at-the-beach fragrance, but I can't really see it being used for much else, except maybe an air freshener.
Okay, whoops, there I go again.
If you're cuckoo for coconuts and pineapples, and don't mind linear fragrances, maybe this one would be suit you well! I'd really like to smell it on someone besides myself, maybe there IS a reason for the hype, and it only reeks on MY skin. One can only hope.

Everyone says coconut with this one, but I actually get more pineapple than anything else (which I suppose is the apple note? at least when combined with the coconut?). For me, G presents itself as unmistakably a pina colada, heavy on the pina. There is a coconut-milkiness running below the pineapple tanginess at the top, but I definitely don't think of this as a 'coconut' scent first and foremost.

It is pleasant and fun and enjoyable in the way that a pina colada is pleasant and fun and enjoyable, when you're in the mood for it. Lasts about 3 hours, and then I have to press my nose right up against my skin to get any hint of the scent. Not one of my favorites and not terribly special (the kind of fragrance that I could see more as a fabulous shampoo or lotion or scented candle), but I can imagine myself possibly reaching for it every now and again. The bottle is quite cute, though, and I don't mind keeping it around just for that.

Longevity is poor. NO staying power. It really smells good though, like mild sun tan oil, coconut, tangy apple skin, and clean laundry. Get "Fcuk Friction for her" instead - it's even cheaper at $11 for 2.5 fl oz. You sacrifice this cute bottle for a tacky one, though X(

The original G was the perfume that got me hooked on fragrances! Its a sweet mix of coconut and I would say vanilla if I didn't know better, very warm and tropical. The subtle mandarin makes this coconut scent smell fresh and natural. I really don't detect any of the florals. G pulled this one off stunningly without the coconut manifesting artificially. I stocked up when I realized G had been revamped...I hope they don't turn!!

G is my favorite scent in the Harajuku Lovers line of fragrances. It's definitely a light, summery perfume that smells exactly like a pina colada on me. I get all pineapple, which is likely the combination of coconut and apple. G is a perfume that I'd wear if I was going to the beach or laying around in the sun -- not really something I'd wear to work or going out. It also doesn't last very long on my skin. This is a perfume that I would probably purchase again if I found it on sale at Marshalls or TJ Maxx -- not a must have but definitely a nice one to have around

A dried coconut scent mixed with the smell of coconut milk and the skin of a green coconut. I smell a bit of sandalwood mixed in. Otherwise it is just coconuts galore!

I used to wear this for work, and constantly got complimented on it (Waitressing, and then store work). While yes, its very strong with the coconut, its sweet, light and feminine, very young, and definitely summery. Very pretty. Nothing groundbreaking, but certainly incredibly pleasant

I enjoy this scent it is great for summertime day or night the longevity for me isn't that great though you need to re-apply I also get pineapple with the coconut for some reason might be the apple mixing with the manderine orange, but it is a divine scent if you like coconut. for me I love coconut so is right down my alley. It is a tropical scent and in the dye down its a scrummy cotton and coconut explosion with a peek of sandle wood. Is definitely a sexy scent and something to have in your purse in the summer at the bar or on holiday! Lovely and a must have for coconut lovers : )

I wore this perfume for my wedding in Jamaica. Now, I spray it on any time my husband and I have a special occasion. We both love it. It's the only one from the original line that lasts a long time. It smells fresh, sweet but not sugary sweet, and mature without being old-lady.

Slightly sweet coconut, but nothing too distinctive here.
It's a little woody due to the sandalwood and cotton flower, there are similarities between this, Baby Phat Dare Me, and FCUK Friction for her.
Baby Phat Dare Me is sweeter with a plastic-y/floral edge.
FCUK Friction for her is what I wanted Harajuku G to smell like: beautiful sweet milky coconut.

Get this if you don't like scents that are too sweet. Get the others if you want sweeter, Dare Me for a floral edge and FCUK Friction for a milky edge.

I tested a sample vial so I can't speak too much to longevity or sillage.

This is my favorite fragrance from first Harajuku Lovers collection and, I really LIKE it.

The opening notes make it smell very close to pinacolada cocktails. Or Iike many other people said, like dry coconut summer oil lotions.

Base and middle notes are definitely better, as they help this fragrance to develop into a much more pleasant sweet cotton candy, creamy fragrance.

Vote: 7.5/10

Also: at first spry I get pineapple for some reasons. Maybe is the synthetic process of creating scents that generates this. Coconut scent + apple scent = pineapple (?) :-)

To conclude: the bottle is absolutely AMAZING, and feel like I want to collect them all but, IMO, the other "Lovers" scents are not that good. :-

I've been wearing and re-purchasing this for about 4 years now...I just can't shake it! I've tried finding another perfume I enjoy as much but this has become ME, I suppose. I smell the coconut from beginning to end, but it starts off as a bright/fruity sort of coconut, then ends as a warm, sweet coconut. This lasts all day on me, and smells lovely on my clothes. I have a feeling they've discontinued this original one though, I haven't seen it for a while :(

To me, the smell of this perfume is not one of those aggressive ones. Instead, it is very soft and warm, which is why I like to spray it on my blanket and pillow at night. It really helps me sleep. But this perfume is definitely my favorite out of all the Harajuku Lovers fragrances. Did I mention the bottle is super cute as well?

Coconut candy. Pineaple jelly. Coconut oil. Coconut creme soda. Pina colada. This is the only fragrance i have experienced which though not vomit inducing leaves me *just* on the cusp. Smells of over-ripe Banana Boat suncare products. Just too synthetic coconuty/pineapply and sweet for me….which is odd because i love both coconuts and pina coladas. If the scent was subtle, i would make use of it on Summer beach days as a hair or beach towel spray…but as she stands, G is too much for me. The bottle: Alice in Wonderland by way of Hustler Hollywood. Ive kept her only because she's a cutie.

Coconuts...need I say more?
Most people say it smells like sunscreen/ pina colada and at one point it does as it airs out. It settles into a "roasty wood" scent.
Fruity...and lots of Coconut.

I am a sucker for cute packaging. Bought this blind online, for the good price and the dolly on top. Once I got it, I was a bit disappointed however- its only 10ml, which such a small amount of perfume (and I always tend to go overboard with spraying my perfume. Which I cant do with this). It made me feel like I was just buying it for the top and not the actual perfume. I'm actually scared to use it- I think I might spray it all away in one go. Also, didn't expect it to smell so much like coconut, but the coconut smell fades on my skin after a while as it settles. This reminds me of a warm day on the beach, I imagine alcoholic drinks with bendy straws and those novelty umbrellas in them- whenever I sniff this fragrance. Certainly going to use this when I go to the beach this summer! Would not repurchase it, (will keep the bottle) solely because this isn't the type of perfume I would normally wear and it doesn't have a very long-staying effect on my skin.

Everyone who said this smelled like a summers day at the beach I am right on board with you. I get a shredded coconut pina colada that is very light and sweet. The coconut here is sweetened by a light jasmine and I Love sandalwood. This fragrance is very light, discrete and smells delicious up close. I wear this at home mainly when I wanna hang out. It does not have a good lasting power I think, which is sad because its not bad at all. I Love the bottle so much, I see it and I get happy. I absolutely love Gwen, still judging on the juice alone I would give it a thumbs up. Still due to lack of sillage and projection I would not repurchase this because I personally tend to fall in love with stronger frangrances. Regardless, if you like subtle light coconut fragrance this will not dissapoint. I recommend this to a teenager who likes bath and body works, and wants to splash on something cute. If you want something that will get you noticed this might be too light.

I adore the energizing and clean scent of this perfume: a fresh and natural coconut, fresh apple, linen, and a little sandalwood a woodsy backup. The mixture is divine, and I would wear this every summer day if the scent didn't wear away in less than 20 minutes. In no way is this perfume artificial or overpowering like a suntan lotion or air freshener. It is, by far, the best fragrance in the Harajuku Lover line.
While clean and fresh, this perfume is mild and sillage-less, and, perhaps, best suited for a 10 year old.
I still love the scent, however, and I wish this were a long-lasting perfume... This is a perfect summer/ outdoors/ sporty/ beachy scent.

If you like dry coconut you can't go wrong with this perfume. It's a safe blind buy, a lovely linear scent.

Remember though - it is NOT creamy nor sweet. It's just coconut mixed with sandalwood to me.

Very long lasting, you can smell it on yourself. Good quality.

I'm testing this today and so far I'm impressed!
The first spray is very fruity, quickly followed by the coconut which is sooo lovely. Some reviewers say its just coconut but I can clearly detect the jasmine, freesia and sandalwood as it dries down.
It's a shame it's discontinued but as it's available at a very good price at various online stores I think I'm going to have to treat myself to a bottle before the summer disappears.
Not particularly a Gwen fan but G is excellent, and I'm keen to try the rest of the range. And how cute are the bottles? At my age I really should know better. LOL :-)

I mean if u don't like coconut, don't get it.. But it just takes me to the beach and just makes me so happy whenever I smell it.. I also smell the apple, but eveything just mixes together so nicely. It's smells like soft and creamy, but like kinda out there. I have a few of her other scents, but I'll always love my G becasue she's so unique.

Currently work at Boots in England and I have been informed it has been discontinued- not sure about the rest of the Harajuku Lovers range but we no longer stock in store.

Sad really, this was my first perfume, bought in duty free from my Mum!

--UPDATE--
Katy Perrys Purr eau de parfum is extremely similar! Far longer lasting with a tad more oomph yet still that summery scent, do not be fooled by the dark coloured bottle!

If you liked this Harajuku Lovers G, I URGE you to smell a tester of Purr.

Wow! Just got this and put it on, lots of coconut that quickly dissipates to watermelon and cucumber, with a hint of floral. The coconut is an underlying scent - it really smells just like holidays and the beach! Very refreshing. Definitely something I would keep in my bag to spritz on while I'm walking around on my travels.

I agree with all that this opens very tropical. I do get some coconut, but on me it's not suntan lotion tropical. I think it's possibly the magnolia, but I get a white flower opening even more than the coconut. mid-way through, the cotton flower & freesia take center stage along with the sandalwood. It's just lovely!
Although this doesn't last as long as I wish it would, on me it is a pretty and evolving experience.
I really like this and I'm glad I bought it. The opening screams "spring and summer" but the drydown says "anytime".
Fresh, pretty and good for just about any age. Don't let the dolly bottle dissuade you (except that there is very little in the actual bottle!) I am giving some thought to re-purchasing, but this time in the tester, not the dolly bottle.

This one smells the best to me. It smells sweet, light, and like coconuts. It reminds me of laying under the sun on the sand at a lake; warmth, peacefulness , and suntan lotion. It's definitely casual, not at all complex, it's a pretty summery young scent. It's not my favorite perfume, but it's nice to have.

It's a beautiful fun coconut scent. I don't really smell the apple, it mostly maintains it's coconut structure, however I love the interesting base. It's a beautiful clean, cotton, 'skin scent' when it dries down.

A lot of coconut scents turn 'syrupy' at the end of the day but because of the clean cotton and apple, it maintains a clean smell. Pretty and innocent. Great for summer!

G is my favourite out of the 'Harajuku Lovers' line. It's my favourite kind of sweetness; it's not too sweet. It's a nice come-closer mix and it doesn't turn sickly on me.

I can't seperate any of the floral scent notes; this is a strictly fruity affair. On me it's a mix of madarin, apple and something that smells like pineapple, on a creamy coconut base. It's sort of like I've spilled a Pina Colada on myself.


I love wearing G in hotter weather, as it's a light and uncomplicated fragrance, so doesn't set off my migraines.

I usually don't like the smell of coconut but this is a delight! It is definitively made for summer and going on long walks on the beach!

i asked this girl what perfume she was wearing that day because i absolutely loved it . She directed me to this one and now its definitely one of my favourites. It smells predominantly of coconut and it really nice to wear on a nice summers or spring day, or even if you want to bring a little summer into the colder months. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the smell of coconut and the tropics.

Although i tried one of the perfume i don't know maybe "Music" there's this weird smell to it... and i think it's Lil Angel or Love there's this weird honey smell which i hate ( I had sample sticks and i placed them together! } Huge mistake! G of the sea(Fragrance stick) ended up smelling like honey :/)

At first, this scent was really weird-smelling to me. But after a while of wearing it, I like it a lot more. I love the smell of coconut, and at first it smelt like a bit too much of it just because not a lot of scents have powerful coconut top notes, but now I just think it's amazing smelling!

I have this perfume and like it but i dont wear it..
its just way too coconutty for me, it smells great on the bottle but not good on me..it just makes me smell like coconut and thats it! too boring for me..
i feel that this is for young teens and has no maturity in it so its a no-no for me :(

I agree, I only smell coconut in this. Great if you like that... though I prefer when coconut is just somewhere in the background... (like with nice woodsy notes or something else mixed in).
I find the sunshine cuties version of this slightly better, though still pretty coconut-y.
I probably won't wear this much though..

I am so glad I went to Ross today because I purchased this there for only $12.99 =) It came with the .33oz 10ml bottle & a .04oz solid perfume. That price is such a steal! I've always wanted this too! This perfume is definitely coconut, tropical, powdery, floral, woody & fruity. I would consider this a day & night fragrance because it is fruity for the day & strong, heavy tropical at night. This is the only coconut fragrance I love.

G is all about the coconut, the sun warmth and a cute plastic doll!

The smell almost makes you imagine yourself on the beach, drinking iced punch under an umbrella and enjoying the view.

G is essentially for coconut lovers, who are into the feel of sun warmed aromas, and who don't mind paying for the bottle :) .

Coconut, coconut, coconut... Is there something else? Yes! there is this sooo cute bottle with a doll! :))
Once again I bought the perfume for its bottle and not the fragrance (and for a great price) I was lucky anought to buy it for less than half price! So how could I miss the deal? I also have the BABY, but I like it less.
I think G would be a nice fragrance for a beach party. Sand, ocean, everybody in swimsuits, exotic cocktails, music, and really hot weather...

I just bought 10ml of G couple of days ago, and I am trying it right now. Everything I get from this fragrance is coconut, and cotton in the drydown. I usually LOVE everything that smells of coconut, but this is really not what I expected. I wanted it to be a very smooth and creamy coconut smell, something like Yves Rocher- Noix de coco de Malaisie, but the coconut here is so DRY and bald..I am kinda disappointed, but the longevity is quite good for such a cheap fragrance..Overall, I am not satisfied. But it is still the best one out of all from Harajuku Lovers line.

I was quite confused when I got this, because I got limited edition packaging. Mine is from the "Snow bunnies" release, and I thought that was the name of the perfume. It completely confused me why it smelled so strongly and obviously of coconut.

In any case, I like it. It's okay. It's slightly boring, but also practical. It seems all my best hair products have a coconut smell to them, and this perfume will compliment those rather than having me worry my hair and perfume will clash.

It is a very well done pina-colada sort of scent, but I feel like that's probably quite easy to find if you're looking. I payed much less than retail and the bottle is cute, so it was totally worth it to me. I may find I like this better in summer. For now, it's just okay.

I understand how so many people love this - it is a sweet, light, pretty scent that smells just yummy. And I LOVE anything coconut. But for some reason I got an equal mix of coconut and pineapple. That completely ruined it for me, since I can't stand pineapple. I wanted to love this so much. Where did all the pineapple come from??

This smells so amazing in the bottle and on a tester paper. On my skin, not so much. That wonderful fruity scent disappears very quickly on me and turns into a very strange and slightly off scent of florals, sandalwood, and an extremely synthetic watery sweet note that might (in some strange alternate reality) be interpenetrated as coconut. In other words, my skin turns what might have been something wonderful, into something ridiculously horrid. I believe there must be some ingredient that this manufacturer is using that just does not agree with my skin as all of the Harajuku Lovers fragrances turn on my skin. Really put off about this.

Oh my gosh, this is my favorite scent ever! I keep two bottles on hand (a big one for home and a little one for travels) just incase I run out of one. The coconut is the first thing I notice when I put it on, but it fades into this amazing summery scent. It reminds me of the sweet smells of summer and fruity suntan lotion (I mean that in a more amazing way then it sounds). Really, it's just a great perfume. And the bottle is so friggen cute as well! How could you go wrong?!

Coconut is dominant here, but there's also a "roasty" feel to this fragrance. I think it's the apple skin. Overall, not my absolute fave, but I still love how nice it soaks in and blends with your skin chemistry, if you have the right kind of course. My mom thinks it smells like suntan lotion. I wear this on Wednesdays in the spring to get me through the middle of my week.

I have to keep re-spraying throughout the day as it wears off quite quickly - I find this with most sweet scents though!

This is not the best coconut scent. Its not gourmand nor is it beachy. The coconut in it smells almost burnt. It is sweet but somehow reminds me one of those horrible gas station imitation perfume oils trying to copy hilary duff with love.

I wouldnt say that it stinks. I just dont like it. My brother(who hates coconut) thinks that it smells good and doesnt detect the coconut. That should let you know it doesnt have the typical sweet coconut flakes smell. It is almost a typical bland perfume. The problem I have with this perfume could be because i purchased it from TJ Maxx but it doubt it.

G is such a cute, young fragrance. Smells very tropical with hints of citrus, cocunut and freesia. I'm a sucker for freesia and coconut so I was automatically pulled in when I smelled G. Very fresh and clean and, unfortunately, forgettable. One of those scents that I love to wear but have to reapply often because it fades so quickly. Definitley worth at least a try if you've not smelled it or used it before. My main complaints are that, again, it has poor sillage and lasts way too little and 2, it comes in these tiny bottles. I have to use it sparingly because I don't want to run out.

Another reviewer said it best, G is Pina Colada in a bottle.

Summary: fresh, tropical but fades very fast.

Don't get me wrong- I'm a huge fan of coconut scents. But this smells like Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena. I was NOT impressed. They sell the 1.7 ounce bottle at Ross Stores for like $17... Even that isn't work the products quality... Wished it smelled more unique and less like BBW stuff..

I can't bear any of these Harajuku fragrances, i just don't get it. Now i'd say they are probably aimed at a much younger market than me (29) but they just seem so tacky and the stuff inside smells like synthetic air freshener not remotely like perfume! I wish she would come up with another more mature fragrance and stop reaming off these horrible dolly sprays!

I'm a guy, trying to pull this off since it has that suntan lotion smell, and thankfully it's very light so I might just get away with it. it's nothing amazing, but I do like it. so far the top notes smelled best (strong coconut), I haven't smelled the base notes yet. sort of reminds me of creamy coconut from bath and body works. good stuff for the price, definitely nice for summer. and in all honesty (not just to defend myself), it's not massively feminine, so I really think a guy can pull this off. I just love that Hawaiian Tropic tanning oil smell, and this definitely resembles it.

I expected a lot from this one based on the reviews I had read but I was very underwhelmed when I tested it. It smelled kind of like baking flour... I have no idea why, it is definitely not a powedery scent but all I could smell was baking flour?? Strange! Maybe the paper strip contributed to this funny smell, may need to try on skin.

Update: Gosh, this does smell like baking flour, even on my skin. I couldn't wait to wash it off my hand.

I love this with the coconut, apple and magnolia. What a combination! It smells so sweet and fruity. Does NOT smell like suntan lotion. Suntan lotion has a kind of plastic sour coconut scent. Not this, it's a floral fruity gourmand type of smell. I almost want to drink it. I don't want to drink suntan lotion.
Ohh, what a cute bottle! Too bad they are so small.

G is one of five fragrances released by Gwen Stefani in her dive into the world of fragrances under her Harajuku Lovers label. The tag-line "A Fatal Attraction To Cuteness" speaks volumes about this fragrances, particularly in it's package and bottle design. This eau de toilette fits in the palm of your hand and sits under a three inch plastic doll. G is based after Gwen herself and features blonde curly hair with a black bow, a white tank top with a ruffled design, a blue miniskirt, fishnet socks and black shoes. These bottles are pure vanity candy and look quite lovely lined up in a row. The perfume bottle itself is quite simplistic and features the name of the perfume as well as the Harajuku Lovers brand logo. At 10ml (or .33 fluid ounces) you don't get a whole lot of juice, but given that the majority of the production value lies in the plastic dolls, it's understandable.

The fragrance itself when initially sprayed smells distinctively of coconut and apple, almost shampoo-like, this scent is quite pleasant and rather inoffensive. The scent does develop too deeply on my skin, and dries down to a creamy coconut. The scent doesn't last too long, maybe two or three hours at the most. Not great considering you don't have tons of juice to keep reapplying, but honestly I think I would grow sick of it if it was heavily applied over a long period of time.

Overall, I quite like this scent and will definitely repurchase when I run out. If having the dolls aren't an attraction to you, I would recommend purchasing a tester online - those contain about 3.4 fluid ounces and usually run around $50, a great, great value considering the full retail prices of these fragrances.

This is Harajuku Lil' Angel all grown up & off its face on rum.

The opening was very strong coconut which was almost nice except for a really horrible, nostril-hair burning undertone.

I didn't understand where it came from until the perfume developed a little more on the skin & I could smell authentic pina colada (complete with the boozy wafts of rum) spilt on coconut suntan lotion. Smelling such a potentially nice gourmand mixed with something so inpalatable made my tummy feel woozy. Reminiscent of a hang-over from a little too much rum in one's Pina Colada the previous evening...

When I first smelled this fragrance, I loved it. I still do,actually. It's a great scent for summer and I love the coconut note in it. But I think it's overpriced. 10mL of this spray costs about $30 and it's very light, so a little does not go a long way at all.
I smelled Hawaiian Tropic Dark Tanning Oil the other day on someone, and it also smelled like coconut and just as good as G, if not better. And it's much cheaper. However, since I have no use of the tanning oil as I tan just fine without it, I might just cave in and buy this. If I can't find a coconutty alternative :/

This is like an icy pina colada served with a tropical flower stuck in it. It smells fruity and good, which is sometimes exactly what you want. However, it only seems to last 2-3 hours on me before I'm left with a somewhat watery, puny coconut. But it's nice while it lasts.

I bought a mini spray of this, this week and testing it again after several months. This is much more icky sweet than I previously thought. :( So sad. Too bad the coconut is so heavy since I do love coconut...

I heard that the summer time Harajuku Lovers they came out with this year. Are they called "summer cuties"? something like that. I heard that this year, they actually changed the original fragrances a little bit and not just the bottle. I noticed when sampling that on my wrist at the store today, the summer one, it seemed lighter on me than the original.

Has anyone tried both? Is there much of a difference to your nose? I so wanted to love the Harajuku Lovers perfumes... sighs... Maybe I would like "Music"? I am on the fence with this one. I really wanted to love Lil Angel. I love what they are trying to do with the fragrances but they smell like they have strange notes in them and just.. well... off. Maybe I should give it more of a chance... I wish I felt the same today as my previous review of "G". We will see as time goes.

Oh my gosh I hate EVERY SINGLE ONE of the Harajuku perfumes. They are all totally disgusting, sickly sweet and cloying. It feels like my throat has just been stuffed full of powder- I can't breathe and it gives me a headache. Worst thing ever. I'm not surprised to learn that one of the base notes in this is cotton flower- it definitely feels as though I've got cotton wool stuffed up my nose!

The other day when I was at Ulta I made myself a sample vial of G (with permission) and today got around to testing it. It’s all about coconut. To me it’s not really a heavy suntan oil coconut, but coconut layered on top of the usual teeny-cheapie marine/fruity/sugary accord. Actually the two notes go together surprisingly well. It dries down to a lightly vanilla-scented fresh coconut milk accord. For a synthetic commercial product, this is not bad at all. It’s not only fun, but wearable. The sillage is good, and the scent lasts about 4-6 hours. The doll bottles are cheesy, and probably represent most of the cost of the product, but the scent is something that I’ll probably wear from time to time when I want a girly, summery, beach feeling.

I sampled this one yesterday, and All I could smell was coconut, and it instantly reminded me of tanning lotion. Which smells good, But its not what I look for in a fragrance. It lasted about twenty minutes on me, by the time I was back in my car heading home I could only smell something boring and milky on my wrist.

Coconuts! I liked this much better than I thought I would. It's so summery and tropical. All I get are coconuts, which is fine by me, it'll be a wonderful summer fragrance. This may be my coconut Holy Grail.

I think I am in love with this perfume! I have been so overwhelmed with so many that change from something beautiful and delicious, into something icky or discusting. :(

But this one really warms up nicely and fades nicely. I really love the cozy warm vanilla scent it leaves on you as it fades. Something that makes you smile and feel cozy. Like wanting to cuddle up in a blanket and have some yummy cookies. :) Anything lighthearted and fun is good!

It starts off a bit icky sweet, and maybe the coconut a bit much. But this one is so fun and that fades. Love it! :) Might have to buy this one later on! This is definitely on my wish list!! :oD

I thought that I would like G the most of all of the Harajuku Lovers: but it has far too much going on for me.
I got the pack with the bottle and the solid perfume when it was on sale - the packaging is wonderful with the little dolls on the top of each bottle.
For that very reason I am fine with what I paid for it - but I wouldn't wear it unless I was sure there were going to be tons of other scents around me - so that way it blends in with the chaos.

I really like G, it smells like a trip to the beach and scented suntan lotion. The note that stands out the most to me in this perfume is the coconut. This scent is fantastic for summer and I have gotten quite a few compliments on it. The bottle is absolutley adorable, and when you finish the perfume, you can display the doll on a shelf somewhere. This smells great mixed with Lil' Angel or Baby. I highly reccomend this for anyone who wants to smell like they just came from the beach.

Not much to say here...G is my favorite from the Harajuku Lovers series.

G smells like tropical coconut drink, it starts a little fruity and then turns into a warm vanilla/coconut fragrance. I must say that when I spray this on my skin I detect some weird plastic scent.

its perfect for the summer, its not too strong and very 'cosy'

I had high hopes for this perfume, because I heard it smelled very coconut-y and I love coconut smells. But when I tried it out at the store, I was disappointed. In the bottle it smells pretty good, like Malibu Rum. But when I sprayed it on my skin, it smelled sickly sweet, like coconut-flavored cough syrup or something. So I thought maybe once it mellowed out it would smell nice, but then it just turned into a strong powdery scent, which I don't like. It could just be that it didn't go well with my chemistry, but I didn't like this fragrance.

Awful. The Harajuku Lovers all mostly smell like cheap vanilla musk, but this is the worst. I do detect a little coconut and the woody base notes, but the wood combined with the overpowering cheap musks make this smell musty and cheap, as in... cheap. Really cheap. Save your money for a real fragrance. This is nothing but cute packaging with crap inside.

I wore this in a crowded casino and had a lot of people ask me if I was the one who smelled like coconut...and could they please have some?
It's coconut with a little sprinkle of something sweet and warm.
It's fun, like all of the Harajuki fragrances are, and are supposed to be.

For a long time I have searched for a tropical fragrance that stays tropical from beginning to end without becoming a sneeze festival or disappearing into thin air - or, becoming suntan lotion. This is sunshine in a bottle...a tropical breeze across the most exotic of beaches. This is an expensive beach where all the girls are perfectly tan and wearing the perfect bathing suit. No person on this beach is uncomfortable in their own skin. Everyone is on holiday. The scent opens with pineapple/coconut milk and blends into the sandalwood seamlessly. This scent is tropical done classy! It is what I wanted in every tropical fragrance I have every tried - not one plastic note to be found and I get glimpses of the scent wafting up towards my nose all throughout the day even if I do not reapply. For an EDT that is quite impressive. I love this. I hope they will make it for a long, long time. Let's not forget how cute the bottle is - even at my age I love the doll cap!

Being a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland, I bought it right after it came out without hesistatnig. The scent itself is rather simple, since the cocount in it is a bit of overwhelimng. It's hard to smell the other notes. You know Malibu, the coconut rum? It smells like Malibu with milk and sugar to me. Delicious, but not very sophisticated. One way or another, it's a pleasant perfume for cold autumn/winter days. A comforting fragrance!

I like coconut but that is all I could smell with this scent. Thr scent didn't smell bad, it just smelled like coconut. As someone said before it smelled more like lotion than perfume. I would not buy this, it smells good, but not for the price that they want. I want a perfume that offers depth and more than one scent. If I wanted a one note coconut scent I would go out and buy a cheap bottle of coconut oil not a perfume that is more pricey.

This one is actually quite strong once you just spray it on-so sweet it makes me a bit sick sometimes, but after it settles down it is ok. I can smell lots of coconut in it, and it doesnt smell like perfume - more like body lotion or tan oil. People notice it and they always say: 'your body lotion smells nice' or something. Dont know if it is good or bad thing, probably not :D I would only use it for beach parties or on holidays. I feel a bit old for it although I am 21.

I'll have to agree that this fragrance is quite lovely. Obviously, because coconut is rather dominant, this won't appeal to people that dislike its scent, however for people that do like tropical, coconutty fragrances, G won't let you down.

The opening is primarily coconut and apple which blend together nicely giving this fragrance a beachy/tropical feel. I'll agree that the scent reminds me of sun-tan oil, and perhaps slightly similar to Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess, yet much lighter and sweeter.

From here onwards the scent only becomes sweeter with the jasmine, freesia and magnolia blending with the coconut to create a scent that is soft, feminine and pretty.

The drydown did not disappoint, ending with a soft sandalwood and cotton blend which rounded the scent off nicely.

The lasting power is quite impressive and the sillage, although not overpowering, can leave a lovely, pleasant trail.

Although the bottle is cute, I admit that I would feel embarassed displaying this bottle. In some ways it's tacky and childish. I'd consider buying this fragrance if they allowed the customer to purchase the fragrance when bottled like their tester bottles, which are simple cylindrical bottles with just the label, (much more sophisticated than the ones with the doll head).

All I got from this was coconut... definitely not worth the money for me. I expected something way more impressive. I can get a coconut body spray for about $5. I like coconut, but I think for a perfume, this one's for a MUCH younger crowd.

I think that G is a very light and sweet scent that is perfect for Summer. It opens up as a rather fruity scent that's rather tropical. Then the coconut joins the group of tropical fruits and starts making out with them. After the snogging session a sensual and energetic coconut and cotton blend is left in the air. In some places it's extremely sweet but I like it.

To be fair. I only tried this once and it was on a cardboard sample at the store. But at first spray I got enveloped in a cloud of coconut, nothing else.As a matter of fact that is all I got. I had some other scents coming through, faintly. But still a LOT of coconut. Not unpleasant, but not me. Kind of reminiscent of the beach and that coconut suntan lotion, or maybe a tropical drink. If you like those scents, then this is the perfume for you.

The bottle is so cute and is probably my second favourite of them all ( HL Baby's bottle being first). G is Gwen Stefani's own bottle so naturally she has blonde hair and is wearing funky clothes.

I didn't like the scent. It reeked like coconut and not nice coconut either. It made me feel sick if I sniffed it to hard, and I couldn't bear to wear it with more than one squirt. It's a slight shame, because if the coconut was toned down it would smell quite delicious.

I would rate this...
Bottle - 5/5
Scent - 2/5
Overall - 7/10

Coconut.That was the first thing that came into my mind when I first smelled "G". Very nice, great for the summer.Alltho I would say that the coconut note is very empowering and makes me slightly nauseous and could be something that you'd kinda get bored of easily.But nevertheless, I've been looking for a coconutty fragrance and I think G would definitely be the one.=)

Definitely the best of the set - an instant hit of coconut & fresh air. Very light but a little 'dusty'- you could easily spray out half the bottle trying to find the depth you expect from a perfume like this...but that's all you get: light & breezy coconut drying down to a sweeter pina colada scent. Very pleasant - but missing something more substancial to round it off. Cute bottle though!

G is described as a 'modern gourmand'. G is my favourite out of the 'Harajuku Lovers' line.

It's my favourite kind of sweetness; it's not too sweet. It's a nice come-closer mix & it doesn't turn sickly on me. I also love the creamy base.


The lasting power is ok & the doll topped bottle is so cute!!

I have mixed feeling about that perfume. It is great for someone looking for something fresh and fruity for spring, but reminds me too much of Pacific Paradise by Escada. I very much prefer the latter.
Definitely a big whoohoo for young girls and lolitas.
G is the nicest of all five harajuku fragrances.

First i'm not attract with the cute doll Gwen stefani and name after herself(G).I love the fruity floral and sensual mix of gourmand.I like all scent warm of coconut.But this one is very sweet when first when i spritz.I know it's coconut water and mandarin.Mandarin is more sweet and little citrus than orange or lemon.

At the few hours later combination of jasmine and talcum smell of freesia appear.I'm really like this perfume even jasmine can irritate my skin but i try,because first perfume from same designer Steve demercado(love at the first glo by jlo)not make my skin redness.

I'm not surprise when G are best selling perfume than four back up dancer of Gwen.For me, this perfume is more tropical smell.This scent really represents stefani style and olfactive sensibilities.

This one stood out to me from the others because i love coconut :)
I think this can be worn in summer or winter as it makes me feel cosy but coconut reminds me of the suncream.
G does last which i was surprised about and the bottle adds fun to my shelf!;D
i have found recently that there is a touch of greenness to this fragrance which brings up images of coconut trees.

I love the coconut smell. Very yummy. It is sweet but not headache inducing. This is the most beautiful bottle in the whole series. My mum likes this bottle a lot. I have no doubt about buying this one from the beginning. It is pure pleasure to watch the bottle and smell the fragrance. Harajuku Lovers really takes perfume enjoyment into a new level.

Pleasant, easy coconut with floral notes and a fruity feel. I like it way more than I thought I would as I usu sally don't care for coconut fragrances outside my summer body mist and I also tend to lean away from fruity scents. This one is nice, reminding me almost of the smell of makeup in it's smooth, creamy blend.

I got a great sample that included all of the Harajuku Lovers fragrances. To be honest, I am not really impressed with any of them. G is a VERY simple fragrance- all I can really pick up is coconut and cotton. Its not necessarily bad, but I definitely wouldn't rush out to buy it.
