Happy Haul: Harajuku Lovers Fragrance Sunshine Cuties in G

I recently bought my first Harajuku Lover’s fragrance in the Sunshine Cuties form because it’s sooooooo cute and also because there was a free wash bag. Yeah. Easily manipulated.

But it’s so lovely!


I wasn’t sure which one to pick, so I used my nose instead of doing the thing that little girls do when they’re picking a doll, which is choosing the one that looks the most like them, unless you’re Asian or Ginger, in which case societal influence and inadequacy means you still pick the blonde doll.

Hey look! I picked the blonde doll!


This was truly my favourite one though!

It’s a sweet, musky, coconuty, pineapple, pina colada scent – perfect, so perfect for summer.


Coconut Water, Mandarin, Bergamot, White Peach, Heliotrope, Exotic Tiare Flower, Orange Flower, Vanilla Bean, Tonka, Skin Musk, Creamy Sandalwood.

I love how she has a backside:


My second choice would be Baby, which was sort of mellow and flowery. God I am so bad when describing perfumes but this is how G makes me feel…

Like I am sitting on a recliner in Jamaica, drinking a virgin Pina Colada (I am allergic to alcohol), a soft sea breeze passing by and some crabs are on the bbq.

It might be to obvious for some people? I don’t know, I think it’s quite a young scent, and it’s quite obviously summery and pineapple-coconut-y. Not subtle. But look at the bottle – it wasn’t supposed to be subtle.


You don’t get much though. It is only £14.50 and its 0.33oz which is…I don’t know, I can’t find ‘ml’ on my volume convertor. Damn you imperial!

Here is the free bag which is super cute and spacious. It’s supposed to be a cool bag but I am using it as a make up bag:

    I’m a fan of HL! I have several t-shirts and sweaters but I never bought a perfume. I always use the same one and don’t like to change.

    I know it’s not the same brand, but I love the smell of L.

    “unless you’re Asian or Ginger, in which case societal influence and inadequacy means you still pick the blonde doll.”

    ehh. whut?
    how are asians or gingers inadequate?

    • Row says

      They’re not inadequate, it’s the attitudes of people towards Asians and Gingers – especially the media – that makes people, especially young kids feel inadequate

      As an Asian girl myself I specifically remember as a kid going shopping with my a group of other kids who weren’t blonde hair or blue eyed – and we ALL fought over the blonde doll. It’s what we aspired too, for the wrong reasons – because we were told this what was the perfect female was.

      So it’s not calling people for being Asian or Ginger, it’s more of a sarcastic comment on society

    The Harajuku Lovers fragrances *always* go on sale! I bought G last year but I haven’t used it since because I’m not too fond of the scent anymore. It’s too strong for me! I love coconuts but I hate the smell of pina coladas!
