Ariana Grande is no stranger to perfumes. In the last few years, she has released several different scents, many of which got their names from some of her hit songs. And this Sweet Like Candy scent is one loved by many. It blends blackberry with Italian bergamot, along with creme de cassis, marshmallow, pear, jasmine, honeysuckle, cashmere woods, and vanilla into one rollerball of deliciousness. We love how easy this perfume is to take on the go so that you can smell great no matter where you are. This scent is a go-to for many and one we think you’ll want in your collection — and your clutch.

This sparkling scent would be the perfect present for any lady in your life.
Best Gift

Find on Amazon

Perfume can be a tricky gift to give, but when it’s something like this scent from Ariana Grande, you know that it has a good chance of going over well. Grande’s Ari perfume was the first one she created, and it still holds a special place in many hearts. At first, the perfume pulls you in with its pear, grapefruit, and raspberry scents, then you stick around for the rose and vanilla, followed by musk and marshmallow to round it out. The bottle is another reason this perfume makes such a great gift — it’s shaped like a gem and includes a fun removable pom-pom.


  • Decorative bottle
  • Pom-pom accessory can be reused
  • Sexy, alluring scent


  • Vanilla notes could be stronger

It’s a versatile perfume that can be worn both day and night, featuring notes of apple, peach, jasmine, tuberose, oakmoss, sandalwood, ylang-ylang, and more. Paris Hilton has her fair share of perfumes, but this one is our favorite by far.
