Perfect Caramel Vanilla Powder Gourmand Scent
by Sarah on Jun 23, 2017
I bought a dozen samples back in 2014. I played with them and wasn't expecting much, then as I sat at my computer typing the most alluring scent was captivating me. It was the dry down on Fancy. It is my perfect gourmand scent of caramel, vanilla, marshmallow and powder. I have blind bought dozens of different fragrances searching for the perfect gourmand perfume. Most smell burnt, synthetic or add too much raspberry/berry notes. I could shower in Fancy it smells so delicious! I have bought a fair few bottles of this since that sample. For me, Fancy and Prada Candy are my favourites! If I had to pick between the two I would choose Fancy as it has a wider more interesting range of notes for me including a divine dry down.
delicous but cloying

I loved this on another girl's skin. It was a lovely complex and sweet vanilla. On me it was so cloying I had to take a shower immediately

Warm, sweet, and yummy caramel fragrance that lasts the whole day.

Fancy was my first gourmand fragrance, and I still love it as much as I did the first time I sniffed it! It is a delicious, warm caramel with hints of read berries to give it a bit of brightness. There is a reason this one is still around. I you like caramel fragrances, give this one a try!

I loved the light and clean smell of this perfume.

It is a little warm and sweet, but boring. Lasts a good bit for a celebrity scent. I wish the amber was a little more pronounced. I wasn't wowed enough to try it again.
Just as I remembered it!

I had a sample of this while in my late teens. Years passed and I rediscovered it. I bought a bottle. It is so sweet. Maybe girly (the upper limit on my girliness), but that's OK. It goes with everything and is appropriate for nearly any occasion or situations. It is strong but not overpowering.
I smell the caramel and amber and maybe the apricot and pear. I'm glad the floral notes not as present as the "golden" notes.
Sweet Winter Scent
by Anyushka on Jan 13, 2016
Fancy is sweet and quite strong. I would wear it in winter only, because it could be headache inducing, especially in warmer and more humid climates. Everyone who likes sweet vanilla/amber scents should give this a go.

What a Comfort Scent
by Nazia on Oct 21, 2015
This stuff is GREAT! When it first sprays on, it is delightfully fruity, all honeyed pear and sweet, tart berries and cranberries - mmm. And then it just slowly dries down into this lovely vanilla, sweet, caramel scent, that is never watery or thin like some other sweet scents. Just warm and feminine and delightful. And this scent lasts and lasts! I don't have to sniff my arm to smell it, even 4 hours or so after applying. I really think I'll pick up a full bottle of this, it's so cheap but so great, you just can't go wrong - it has the same drydown as a lot of designer perfumes, and the top notes are similar in quality to Armani Si. I love this.
Warm Sugar Cookies
by BelleAim on Feb 16, 2015
Yummmmm, this one is very sweet but in a delicious way! I get warm gooey caramel and vanilla almond milk with a hint of pear and apricot baked on a soft cushy base of amber and sandalwood. I can find a very very slight hint of florals, mostly jasmine for me but on me it is definitely a comfy sweet high end dessert shop smell, I love it!
On this cold, snowy day, this perfume is just perfect! It's like warm, fresh-from-the-oven soft sugar cookies. I also feel a resemblance to Hypnotic Poison by Dior - mostly because of the almond sandalwood notes (but Hypnotic Poison is WAY stronger on me and has a bit less dessert shop smell and more of the 'poison' spice to it).
Sillage for me is great, I can smell it while walking around doing random things and it's always a yummy pleasant surprise, like "Mmmm! Where are the cookies?! Oh, it's my perfume!" :) Perfect scent for being cuddly on a cold day. I feel like this could be cloying in warmer weather due to the sweetness.

Very pretty scent. Not strong and overwhelming. Sweet, but a nice sweet. I liked it. Would buy a bigger bottle.
All I can smell is amber
by Carrie on May 23, 2014
This is a warm scent. All I can smell is amber. This would work for an older lady. Too mature for me

Very sweet and light. Smells like a glammed up cotton candy
Warm and sweet
by Alanna on Mar 5, 2014
I tried a sample of this perfume and I have to say, I really like it, but I can't wear it! It is very warm and too sickly-sweet on my skin. I want to like it so much but I just can't; it gives me a headache. If you are someone who isn't sensitive to certain perfumes, and you love caramel and vanilla, then you may be able to pull this off and it could become one of your favorite scents!

I didn't care for the top notes but the middle and bottom notes were nice. It got better the longer I had it on. Lasted about 8 hours.
