I have been on a quest to find fragrances that are more natural and less toxic (and therefore less headache causing). After trying a few brands I came across Pacifica Perfumes. While they don't claim to be organic or completely natural they have removed some of the more harmful components in perfumery like phthalates. Also they have the option of perfume in solid form, which is far better for the skin than spraying alcohol direct day after day. As soon as I opened the little tin of Brazilian Mango Grapefruit I was hit with a fresh and fruity burst of aroma. It was a little reminiscent of Elizabeth Arden 'sunflowers' (which back in its heyday was very popular), but this was more fruity and sophisticated (and not as overpowering). I could detect the grapefruit then the mango, but could also smell a hint of melon (although it does not feature in the notes...so perhaps it came from the apricot). Over time the fragrance mellowed and became a very happy sunny scent which I thoroughly enjoyed getting a whiff of all day. I had read reviews about the quality of Pacific Perfumes so was extremely keen to receive my order from iherb and as I am overseas this site offered the best prices by far! I was extremely impressed with the quality of the fragrances. They smelt like some of the designer perfumes I use to buy but not as intense or synthetic smelling as. I didn't get a headache (which is one of the main reasons I stopped buying perfumes) and the cost for the solid perfume was exceptional. This brand definitely exceeded my expectations and Brazilian Mango is one of my favourite with its fresh summery fruit aroma!

I had to stop using chemical scents and got two of these Pacifica Perfumes. I felt that they are too expensive for what they are and the smell is very very mild. I guess if you like mild, then it's quite good, but I was hoping for a long-wear stronger scent.

Smells nice, but not my favourite. Fruity, but rather dull scent. Fades quickly.

I was hoping more grapefruit, but can't smell it all. It's a nice fresh mango smell for anyone who likes it. Wears off fast.

I love the Pacifica solid perfumes and have a few of them, but this isn't going to be a favorite. The smell is somewhat fake, artificial smelling. Reminds me of cantaloupe more than mango or grapefruit, and doesn't last nearly as long as some of the other scents. I'm pretty disappointed in this one.
