Bubblegum Chic Fragrance Reviews

This is crazy stuff a concentrated effort in perfumery to evoke quite a sickly and (I suspect) acquired taste of a smell.
It really does smell like bubblegum folks...the opening is quite the sweet shop explosion!
It'll have you wondering 'where does the Chic come into this equation?'
Well I'll tell you.... the synthetic smelling candy sweetness then becomes positively identifiable as tuberose and jasmine in a strong concentration which at first comes across undilute and chemical but then changes to naturally floral. This balance is maintained but flip flops back n forth.
I like this kind of white floral but there's no chance I'd ever wear it.

Want to smell like a bubblegum-chewing Barbie? This one got you covered. The only reason I know about this fragrance is because a girl I dated wore this. At least she wasn't wearing Lady Gaga perfume.

At first I did not like this. I was looking for a good tuberose and I was sent a sample of Bubblegum Chic. I tried it and thought it was ridiculous to make a tuberose bubblegum perfume. And the cost, what the...? I tried it again some months later and realized it does smell like bubblegum a bit, but Tuberose, to my nose, naturally has a bubblegum-like scent at times. Now I love it. The lasting power is amazing and the sillage is good. I have Tubereuse Criminelle and Bubblegum Chic seems to have the same vibe; an amplified facet of tuberose. Great.

It was a tuberose soliflore for some time. I wasn't impressed or stirred by it in any way. An hour later when I was considering scrubbing, I gave it one last sniff, and was not sure whether it might be my imagination that I smelled pink bubblegum. I reasoned that maybe I just wanted that to be the case. Kept sniffing and kept smelling bubblegum. Up close it does have a bubblegum aspect to it, but on the whole, from a distance, it's still just a tuberose soliflore. Interesting, to be sure, but not enough bubblegum.

Promising opening ... I was told by the SA there was incense in this one and to me it smelled like it as well (although the notes won't justify that now)...like incense & raspberries.

So back then I thought this was edgy but soon the honeymoon was over (about 30-40 mins after putting on) and I ended up wearing a bland and slightly synthetic mess. Too bad. I guess I'm glad here that it did not stay for more than 2 hours (a bit poor for an extrait de parfum)but then I guess that is good when it came to me.

You know this a beautiful tuberose centric fragrance . It is sweet , natural smelling, and rich. An intoxicating white floral. From my point of view I trust this Ja,es Heeley to understand his palettes probably there are several blow your socks off tuberose centric fumes out there; and what do you do when you are directing, risking, a passionate lover of perfume and balls to the wall. This is a stunning sweet, lolly nuanced heady and rich fume. There is a gorgeous and somewhat unexpected rich vanillin drydown . Oh gosh no... I cannot add another delirious tropical floral to my ridiculous collection nonono...there is nothing 'chic' about this, it is sex on steroids...

I'm sad that this fragrance didn't work for me, because I'm a big fan of Heeley. Also, I really love tubereuse, but this one smells sour to my nose and I only get an overwhelming, knocking down note of grape, the kind I used to smell in colored ink pens back in primary school. If this was a real bubblegum, I wouldn't chew on it. If this was the scent of a lipstick, I'd steer away from it.
I can't imagine anyone, young or mature, female or male, quirky artist or elegant, wearing this.

Floral bubblegum. Smells like a vintage bubblegum, don't think anyone had that before :) but you know what I mean, well let me clarify.....
Tuberose, jasmine and bubblegum; bubblegum interpretation thru these flowers as close as possible, still not the kind of bubblegum you want to chew on, smell yes, why not. It's a grown up chew.
Overall, it's just okay, too expensive for such a bubblegum imitation.

I adored this and it smells just like pink bubble gum along the line of bazooka , but done in a more elegant way, however this scent does not lasts. Projection is not good. I'm surprised this is lasting for some. I'm disappointed.

I am usually an oriental and gourmand can, but I bought a sample and I am hooked. It starts off very floral and fades to a yummy sweet classic bubblegum scent. Of course, the fragrance I would like the most lately would be expensive... Just my luck.

I hoped this would be the Heeley take on bubblegum smell such as you get in Demeter Bubblegum or ELdO Encens et Bubblegum,but no, this is a tuberose and jasmine bomb. It doesn't smell anything like the bubblegums I chewed when I was a kid. It's the only Heeley I have ever disliked. Too floral, not enough chicle. In its favour it is incredibly long-lasting (7 hours so far and strong as ever), with noticeable sillage.

Amazing!!!! It's a huge tuberose fragrance but somehow it really does manage to smell like bubblegum! Imagine chewing on a giant, juicy wad of Bazooka Joe, yet it's all floral at the same time. It's such an interesting perfume because if you think about flowers, it smells like tuberose and jasmine, but if you think about pink bubblegum, it's definitely there. I am a gourmand lover and I don't tend to go for overly floral perfumes, but the fruitiness and yumminess of this delicious extrait just can't be overlooked and I find it to be such a unique scent that it must be appreciated! I also love how concentrated it is. One drop and you're good to go! It's quite expensive, but I think my sample will last a LONG time. If you like bubblegum, or another take on tuberose, please at least give it a try! And for the posters looking for it, Surrender to Chance has samples, and I believe Lucky Scent might as well.

I don't get bubblegum, but I do get a nuclear bomb strength sweet, gourmand-ish tuberose. This stuff is incredibly potent. Use sparingly. Probably best to spray it AWAY from you and simply walk through the fragrance cloud. Not only will you smell good, but the room will smell like tuberose for hours.

To me this is an absolutely wearable Jasmine and Tuberose fragrance. I have a very hard time with the likes of Fracas and FM Carnal Flower, they are too much, to loud, to animalic. There is sort of a twist to this one that takes out the animalic aspect a bit. In a weird but addictive sort of way I do get a little hint of bubblegum, so the name Bubblegum Chic is not weird at all. I think if you are scared of big screaming Tuberose and Jasmine scents this one maybe the answer for you. Easy spritz finger on this one will help you appreciate the scent even more. Less is more.....just saying.

Does anyone know where this perfume can be purchased? The Heeley site does not list retailers or sell it via an online store. =/

Eeeew - why ? really WHY ??? ... I mean seriously this would have been intolerable enough in plain strength, but to have it as an extrait - just no, no, NO thank you ! ... There really is too much of a good thing. (Not that this is particularly "a good thing" to start with. Sorry, but a totally waisted opportunity for some excellent extraits from Heeley. ~ Oh well .......

Bubblegum Chic knocked me down. Between the "inspirational words" I read "pink", "extrait de glamour", "passion", "lips", "appetite", "fatale"...I'm loosing my patience. Bubblegum Chic is clearly marketed as feminine and my point is this: how is it possible in 2011 to use such trite commonplaces to describe a feminine fragrance? Please someone tell me. It looks like Mr Heeley committed the writing of the presentation of his new fragrances to the cast of "Sweet Sixteen". Not to talk about the fragrance that is a boring tuberose / jasmine composition with an exasperating fruity-bubbllegum effect. As per Agarwoud you can have plenty of better options at any price if you want a tuberose centered composition (Tubereuse Criminelle, Carnal Flower, Giorgio Beverly Hills, Histoires De Parfums Tubereuse 1 and 3, Fracas, First, Madame Rochas... to name a few).

Tuberose for Barbie.
