Ever used artificial cherry extract for your icing when you were baking cupcakes, or put almond extract in a vanilla Funfetti cake? Then you already know exactly how Le Paradis ($59) smells. It's a wave of cake and cherry-amaretto that dissolves into a sweet, apple-vanilla scent. It doesn't develop a lot, but it certainly does smell nice, and very much like a spray-on version of Crazylibellule and the Poppies Vanilla Pom fragrance stick ($16) — of which I'm a fan. It also reminds me of a sweet, creamy cousin to DKNY Be Delicious ($40), so if you love that, and also like fragrances and scents that are even sweeter, like Angel ($70), you may really like this one.
