Rated 2 out of 5Â by elizabethanne Not like the perfume at all!
This cream feels great but the Cleopatra smells nothing like the actual perfume from Tocca. I am super bummed that I now have this cream the smells like weird air freshener and not the subtle floral and citrus scent of the Tocca Cleopatra fragrance. Not good for layering your fragrance.! Too bad.... and too expensive of a mistake!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by taylorbee Wonderful lotion, but . . .
I have to agree with the previous reviewer! The lotion itself is excellent, but the the Cleopatra scent does not smell like the perfume at all. In fact, it smells like . . . candy, maybe? Regardless, it is pretty sickly sweet - not at all like the perfume! I can't speak for the other scents, but maybe they smell more like their corresponding perfumes (or at least less like fake fruit flavored gum). At least the scent dissipates a bit! Smell aside, though, the lotion is really nice. It's creamy without being too thick, and it absorbs quickly. It leaves my hands and arms soft and not sticky!

I have been using Tocca since visting the SoHo store in 1996.. Currently still have a feu de touch bottle of perfume that still smells divine, Stella (classic), Liviana (new, not a huge fan) Guilietta (amazing), and smaller sprays of cleopatra (lux), Florence (a little heady with the gardenia for my opinion), Colette (warm singular vanilla), Bianca (fresh light green tea), and some others. Have had all the candles over the last few decades and adore memory producing Havana, Yima, Touch, Stella.. Ok all of them. The new Mano creams and this new bath line may be my favorite new addition- quality products and amazing value. To touch on the scent difference comments of the cream to perfumes from my experience I believe the perfumes were reformulated "takes" on the ideas of the original Stella Cleo Florence lotion/candle only lines when Touch was the only perfume back in the early 2000's and the House hadn't begun this amazing venture into Old World Scent "the girls". Therefore they smell different. BUT as a lifelong Tocca fan I appreciate that the new bath lines (and this cream) kept the original scents as their base when (I believe?) the Tocca beauty house was bought out and changed not too long ago. Therefore for ME the perfume scents smell different than the REAL cleopatra scent which this cream is the original scent.
