Question
Difference in Concentration from EDP to Parfume
I have the EDP 1.7oz spray and love it, what is the difference in concentration to the Parfume? I would like to purchase the Pure Parfume if there is a big difference in the lasting of the scent. Thanks !

I have found a difference between both! The EDT is good, but the pure perfume does seem to last longer on me.

Not sure that you need the perfume. The EDF seems to be strong enough and lasts all day. Also, I like don't like a pure perfume to come in a spray as it usually spays more than needed.

There's a HUGE difference. The Eau de Parfum stays on far longer. I also carry the rollerball around to freshen up, which is handy. Worth the extra money.

Parfum is oil based and lasts longer than the Eau de Parfum which is a more watered down version. I've gotten both and the fragrance is the same. I do not feel that the Parfum is a stronger scent ..just longer lasting. Put it on the inner wrists and the neck line as well as your stomach....RRRRrrrr

I would check with Sephora.ca in Canada and also certain stores would sell it. Holt Renfrew in Canada stocks this in their stores - prices are higher than on Sephora's online store (through the website).

Yes, it is sold in Sephora stores for sure, but may vary from one Spehora to another. Make sure you call your nearest Sephora FIRST and ask if that individual store carries it. Different Sephoras carry some lines and don't carry other lines. It all depends. Call first.

How sweet is this perfume?
On a scale of 1 to 10,(1 being not not at all, such as Opium. 10 would be super sweet like Pink Sugar. And 5 being a happy medium, such as Gucci Guilty:IMO) How sweet do you consider this perfume?

I would rate it as a "6" for the vanilla notes - when you first spray it on, it strikes me as a sweet fragrance and then the lower notes come in as a "musky" base.

I would give this probably a 7 on your sweet scale, but I've never worn Pink Sugar. I have worn Opium and Gucci, and I agree with your ratings. HM is more like Rive Gauche, more powdery, sweet and more defined than Rive Gauche. BUT I get a LOT of complements on Hanae Mori, and I don't smell it on everyone.

I own Pink Sugar as well and LOVE that it's such a build-able scent.

I wear it all year round. Lasts longer in winter than summer. It's more musky on me. Starts out heavy then settles down to a lighter scent. Whenever I wear it I get compliments.

The best thing to do if you can't clearly read if it's the parfum or not. Go into Sephora and bring the sample. I'm sure the sales person can tell which one it is.

If it was just in a white/frosted atomizer it could've been Hanae Mori's fragrance called Gimme Mori, but I would look into it before buying.

Question
Is it Pink Butterfly with pink butterflies on the box?
I tried the other version (w/ blue butterflies I think) and didn't like it at all. A sample vial was the same, very unpleasant and strong. But the pink version was divine. So which one is this?

I have the pink, and I like it. It's probably best to sample it the next time you are in Sephora, or a department store before you buy it. However, if you did purchase it and didn't like it Sephora would take it back.

On Sephora's website I found the following - Parfum, Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette. If you want a stronger base then purchase the parfum. If you want a softer scent and work, then use the eau de toilette.

I don't believe the concentrated perfume is available for retail sales. Just the Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette.

I would think so because it does state perfume and the price is a good indicator whether it is the real deal being more expensive than lesser concentrated versions.

I had that same problem when ordering this fragrance online as well. However, when I was in Sephora, I remember the fragrance that I sampled was in a white box with pink butterflies decorating it, but there was also a box with blue and green butterflies on them, signalling that these were all different fragrances by the same designer. When ordering pay attention to the reviews by other and some will reveal whether or not the fragrance they ordered is Hanae Mori's Pink, Blue, or Green Butterfly because online Sephora only shows the bottle not the box.

Question
Does this smell similar to HANAE by Hanae Mori?
I was out the other night and found a store that sold both Butterfly and HANAE by Hanae Mori. I was told the rollerball I tested was "Butterfly", but after going home and looking up the images, it was actually HANAE. I love vanilla scents, especially something with a hint of vanilla. It smelled VERY nice, but the vanilla was a tad too strong for me.

HANAE is actually a lot more "fruity" than the butterfly. I think Butterfly is better. Its a nicer blend of the notes.
