Not subtle at all...but I love it anyway
by Mary on May 11, 2018
Don't try this if you favor subtle, delicate scents or clean, fresh scents. If you love sugarbombs, then this should be on your TBT list. Better worn in cooler weather, most either love it or hate it. Put my vote in the former please!

Too sweet. And smells burnt
Don't like it
by Tammy on Jan 7, 2018
It is sweet and very sugary, but way too sweet for me. There was a synthetic smell to this that I just couldn't stand.

Shockingly sweet stomach churning horror. Made the purchase after reading all the great reviews. Tried very hard to like it but all round just a major disappointment.

Smell yummy, but not for very hot days
by Heather on Oct 14, 2017
I wish for just a second I got any of the wonderful notes listed for this fragrance, but I do not. All I get is baby powder and baby wipes. I'm actually amazed this is as popular as it is.

I absolutely love this fragrance! I can already tell that if I had a full size bottle I would go through it quickly. I only got the 1ml sample size and I wish I would have gotten a bigger size! This fragrance is very sweet smelling and smells like cotton candy to me. My boyfriend absolutely loves it. I will be buying the full size bottle as soon as I can.
by Shevon on Jul 31, 2017
Very lovely fragrance. It smells good and lasts about 5 hours on the skin. One of my favorites, from my set of samples. Currently, it is second to Bonbon by V&R.

Pink Sugar is one of my all-time favorite gourmand fragrances! It features cotton candy, caramel, vanilla, juicy berries, sandalwood, and musk. Yes, it is very sweet, but there is also something sultry about it. It lasts all day on me, and the projection is good enough that people notice, but not so strong that it bothers them (I wear one to two sprays). If you like your fragrances sweet, you won't be disappointed in this one!!
The sweeter the Sugar.
by Desiree on May 16, 2017
Pink sugar definitely defines this scent, it's sweet at first but then winds down to a baby powder pink scent. Nice and adorable no matter the age.
by Amanda on Mar 7, 2017
Very sweet and a little powdery. Its also kind of young, but mature enough to wear if you're not in high school. I find it layers very well too

Smells like sweet candy in summer
by Mary Carole on Feb 16, 2017
I've worn this one for a few years and always get compliments. Yes, it is sweet, pretty sure the name gives that away, but once it dries down on me it has a soft sweet powdery fragrance that last a long time. While I get how some say this one is for teens...a woman in her late 30's (me) can also enjoy it in the right setting. It's fun and playful!
by Michal on Jan 2, 2017
I bought this blindly based in other reviews and I'm so glad I got the largest size! It smells so good and it's great for anytime. But I specifically like it in the evening for cozying up on the cough. It's versatile and wouod smell good on a lot of people. If you don't like sweet scents then don't buy it because it definitely smells like candy! I get the cotton candy but I also get a hint of black licorice at first which is crazy because I HATE black licorice but it actually works somehow.. it's only for the first 19 minutes or so and then it dries down so a lovely soft, powdery and fresh eatable scent that makes people really pick up on! I just wish it lasted a little longer but I don't mind putting it on again every few hours :) It's well worth it! Now I wanna try the whole line!!
I Smell Delish
by Miea on Nov 17, 2016
-a little goes a long way
I was very skeptical when I first purchased this as a sample. I don't really like "candy/sweet" scents. I usually stick with warm scents and sometimes tropical if i want something "sweet". When I tried it on at first it smelled very strong like a really sweet candy. More like of the strawberry than 'cotton candy'. As it dies down it starts to have a yummy toasted marshmallow (guessing the vanilla and caramel) with hints of a warm musk. My favorite part about this is the occasionally citrus hints you smell. You first smell sweet and warmth and then you get a small hint of lemon (maybe where the orange comes in?). I went and bought a full size and every-time I wear this heads turn and ask what I'm wearing. lol This is probably the only "candy" fragrance I have...Not to fond of the Pink Candy Sensual (too powdery for my taste)
by Victoria on Jun 10, 2016
My teenager loves this but it's way too sweet for my taste. Seems like a great fit for a younger girl.
by Amber on Jun 10, 2016
This reminds me of cotton candy and vanilla. This smells good for a gourmand scent. It also has very good lasting power.
So Very Sweet & Pretty
by Holly on May 29, 2016
This is one of my favourite perfumes, and definitely a go-to. When I wear it people around wonder aloud why the room smells like candy. The only occasions I won't wear it are when I'm around people who are sensitive to strong scents, as it is VERY sweet and these people describe it as sickening. Overall a wonderful scent, everyday, in my opinion. Look for the hair perfume version!
by Roberta on May 28, 2016
I do like cotton candy, but I don't necessarily want to smell like it. This is a very strong fragrance with an overwhelming, cloying sweetness. Rather an artificial sweetness at that. I can see this on a teenager though. I think children would really enjoy this advent.
by Cindy on May 20, 2016
Yes, this is a sweet scent. Yes, it smells like cotton candy. But the licorice is all I smell after the first spray, and for the next two hours. I'm not a fan of licorice, but I wear Pink Sugar because it smells great to others (the licorice stays close to the skin). Projection is amazing, and it lasts really long. Compliments galore. The drydown is just vanilla. It nauseates me after a while though.

I grew out of this one, but when I was younger, I loved it. It smells like cotton candy
by Helena on Mar 26, 2016
Love it. Sweet, glorious vanilla and creme brulée with a dash of cotton candy. Makes me feel warm and happy :)
Quite nice, and complex
by Betsy on Jan 13, 2016
At first glance, this would appear to be a perfume strictly for the "10 and under" crowd. But it actually it is interesting and complex.
It is truly suitable for all ages, especially if one has the personality to carry off gourmand fragrances: my 5-year-old daughter, my mom, and I, all enjoy this one.
One note: some people don't like this because of a burnt sugar smell.
I don't smell burning sugar or rubber, but at times I smell molasses. Licorice is a listed note, so if that is disagreeable to you, Pink Sugar Simply Pink, or Gold Sugar might be more suitable to you.
by ASHLEY on Dec 17, 2015
Think cake, cookies, even better...cotton candy! Another dessert reminder here....So sweet and girly...I like!
Compliments every time
by Paic on Sep 29, 2015
I wear this once in a while since I have bought it a few years ago and every time I get compliments. It is just a very warm inviting fragrance that reminds me of baking and sugar. Very pretty scent.
by Hope on Sep 12, 2015
I typically go for dark, deep and complex fragrances and do not love things too sweet. Pink Sugar is a nice exception for me. I was leery to try it at first because I was afraid it would smell cheap. This was a pleasant surprise! It starts off very bright with some citrus and raspberry tones but quickly deepens into sugary deliciousness. To me, this should've been named Simply Sugar and the "Simply" version named something more complex as that one is more of a brown sugar fragrance. I love them both but wear this one more often. It isn't too sweet for me--major surprise. I have also found this to be wonderful for layering on some of my dryer fragrances. It smells divine atop Bvlgari Black. Purchased two full size bottles!
Better than I remember!!
by Stacey on Mar 7, 2015
Such a wonderful scent for a wide age range!! Absolutely love it! Bought two full size bottles because I love it so much! One for me and one for my daughter!
by Lora on Mar 3, 2015
This scent was just "so-so" for me. I can see why it appeals to others, but it didn't smell quite right on my skin after a while. It smelled like pure sugar, burnt sugar with a hint of citrus at first and then faded into being sour-sweet. It just had a strange BITE to it. My skin would not shake the citrus / raspberry notes for some reason. Very odd.
My signature scent
by Nikki on Feb 20, 2015
I've claimed this scent as my signature scent for years! I wear it daily because it's not one of those overpowering 'old lady' scents, and has generally enjoyed by everyone scents in it. I work in a hospital, so these candy & cake scents are less irritating than the stronger floral or woodsy scents. I once dated a guy who told me that his dad had told him that if he ever found a girl that smelled like delicious food, he should marry her. That didn't work out so much, but this scent does! Love it!
by Jade on Jan 27, 2015
I really like this. This is a woman sweet and not a poorly made teeny bopper cheap sweet. Carmely and full of cotton candy for sure. I can smell the cherry as well. A hint of musk. It's a really nice combo. I'll be making this a regular in my perfume collection.
This is everywhere!
by Emily on Dec 28, 2014
This is a hugely successful scent and I personally don't understand why. Grown women wear this and end up smelling like they rolled around the floor of the candy and icing strewn aftermath of a child's sixth birthday party.
by Lea on Aug 8, 2014
When I wear Pink Sugar out in public people usually stop me to ask what I am wearing. It's good!
Warm, edible sweetness, long lasting
by Bridgette on Jun 13, 2014
Very nice. Warm. NOT crisp and light. Deep and delicious, like edible almost. It has great lasting power. I'd buy a larger bottle. It's nice.
by Adrienne on May 20, 2014
This smells like sugar, really sweet.
Great for summer
by Alanna on Mar 4, 2014
This is perfect to wear in the summer when you're at the fair/carnival, a concert, or just the boardwalk.. it is so young and sweet smelling. I get mainly licorice, cotton candy, and burnt sugar/caramel. It's quite unique and it brings back childhood memories.
good cotton candy scent
by Krista on Jan 18, 2014
if you like cotton candy you will love this perfume. it is VERY sugary and to me, smells just like cotton candy.
by Ricky on Nov 9, 2013
It's really sweet, but I like the smell!
Perfect for layering
by Rhianna on Oct 25, 2013
A VERY long lasting perfume with moderate silage, which is a tough combination to create. Smells like burnt sugar, but in a good way (like creme brule). Not a very complex scent so it's great for creating a sweeter base note for other fragrances.
by Allison on Aug 16, 2013
I put this perfume on and my boyfriend thought it smelled like a public restroom air freshener, or like urinal cakes. Maybe it just didn't work with my body chemistry, but I would not purchase this.
Sweet and Yummy!
by Crystal on May 14, 2013
Super sweet scent! Smells predominantly of sugary cotton candy with warm hints of caramel and vanilla at its base. Some have people have commented that it smells almost powdery on me. This is a vey youth targeted scent but I still love it and get comments on it all the time. This sugary daytime scent would be great for anyone who is fun loving and young at heart. But like all things sweet too much of it might make you sick.
