Description
Live Colorfully is for the woman who lights up every room she enters. The subtle notes of the fragrance—layered with a complex spectrum of bright florals, citrus, and musk—remind her to step into the world of color around her. The notes shift playfully throughout the day to delight and surprise. The key note of gardenia is at the heart of this uplifting fragrance, but it’s the unexpected mix of classic vanilla and musk, along with exotic touches of coconut water and tiarè flower, that lend Live Colorfully its complexity and lasting depth.

P.U!
Extremely floral! Lasts a LONG time and soap isn’t taking it off. I would not purposefully buy this. These bottles are too expensive for a hit-n-miss chance of maybe liking one. I’ve received SIX and only one was tolerable. I can’t even give them away! I also never received a new free perfume holder for my sixth shipment as was promoted.

Tropical flowers mixed with a lifesavers gummy smell
I know that title probably has you cracking up, but as serious as Live Colorfully wants to be, it's big white tropical flowers with a soft whiff of lifesavers gummies! I think it's because this perfume has some citrusy fruits in the background, big bold flowers, and then just a hint of soft powder from the coconut and amber and that powder is quite youthful. Just like Kate Spade's witty charm in handbags and goods, this scent is proper but playful.

I was originally a little hesitant to try this scent. It’s described as floral and that’s usually a big nope.. I’m so glad I tried it! It’s clean, fresh, warm, sexy, and smells expensive (if thats a real thing)! Perfect for everyday or just special occasions. Can’t wait to get a full size bottle!!!

Live Colorfully
It's a fresh clean scent. Kinda has a slight fruity scent. I have a hard time finding scents i can wear our even be around, I have asthma. This scent didn't bother with my breathing or anything. Also it lasted all day. Although by the end of the day you could barely smell it, this perfume may just be on my Christmas List of things i must have.

I liked this perfume but didn’t love it. It is a good daytime scent for the summer. I found it lasted pretty well on my skin and it didn’t smell sharp at first which is something I really appreciated.

Summer scent
I do like this scent. I’m not sure if I love it enough to buy a full size for myself but it is a very nice summer scent. It has tones of copper tone sunscreen in it which makes it seems so Beach and summery. It’s light and airy but still a little goes a long way. It’s uplifting and the bottle resembles the scent nicely. I would recommend.

Amazing!
I have always had a love for perfume and how it influences the people around you. For example, I've had men and women approach me randomly to compliment on my perfume.... I was wearing this perfume during one of the encounters. Although it's odd for me to include that in a review...thought I'd share the general consensus.

Very Heavy/Floral Scent
I have tried other Kate Spade fragrances and wanted to give this a try. I was very optimistic when I read the description because I love floral scents, especially gardenias. This scent is very heavy when you first spray it and I smell Lilly more than anything. I've tried it several times thinking it will grow on me and to give it a real chance. I still don't like it. The only compliment I have received (and I usually receive lots of compliments on other scents I wear) was from a 70yr old woman. Seems fitting since that's the age group the scent reminds me of when I spray it.

Is it next month yet?
I was really hoping this would be better. It smells like a cheap perfume. I didn’t smell any of the citrus notes, just HEAVY floral and earthy spice. While you do get the gardenia notes, it’s not a nice light gardenia, it’s very heavy/harsh.

Not As Expected
Based on the main notes I was expecting something different. I only get gardenia..nothing else. It doesn't smell bad just not unique or different...just basic gardenia. If you love gardenia this is definitely for you!

This was a little too much for me in terms of the strength of the fragrance. It smelled like it had too much alcohol in it, if it that makes sense. Additionally, it had a cheap-quality feel to it and didn’t last long at all once applied.

Feminine & Fresh
This is a light, nice scent that can be used as an everyday perfume. On me, it pulls heavy into the gardenia smell, and most of the fruit is hidden. (I should note that most things pull floral on me if there's anything about it that can.) The scent dries down nicely, but lessens considerably after the couple hours. My husband's response: "you smell good," which is about as ringing of an endorsement as he gives. Definitely worth a try for spring/summer.

This is a lovely smell that reminds me of summer. It's strong when you first put it on and its very heavy on the coconut, but it dries down nicely. It lasts a long time.

Much too floral for me!
I was excited about this scent based on other reviews but was sorely disappointed. It overwhelming! If you like super strong florals, especially gardenia, then you may very well enjoy this scent. I however do not like heavy florals as I associate them with cute little old ladies who carry hard candy in their purses... which is not me and not the impression I want associated with me.

beachy
Fun, beachy scent, perfect for summer. There is a nice balance between the floral and coconut. It doesn't smell like sunscreen like most other coconut scents. However, I'm glad I did not purchase a full size... "Very Sexy Now: Beach" by Victoria Secret is a 100% PERFECT DUPE for this and less than half the price. I sprayed this on one wrist and Beach on the other, and everyone I asked said that the scents are identical.
