An orange-centred citrus notes that is heavily laden with a sweet note of red berries is present in the opening phase, whilst the drydown bringing in faint whiffs of bland licorice.

The later phases see the addition of a light vanilla background, on which a light musk and a nonspecific woodsy impression develop.

The performance is excellent with moderate sillage, good projection and a splendid eleven hours of longevity. It is the generic, synthetic and boring nature of the ingredients that spoils this olfactoric party, but at least it is never really overwhelmingly sweet or cloying. Very middle-of-the-road. 2.25/5

This scent introduced me to the world of perfumes and I still adore it today. It takes me back to those younger party days with the incredibly sweet cotton-candy scent. Eventually it winds down to a solid vanilla scent and is always well received by others. Good for a younger girl or someone like me who still adores a sweet scent.

I am not a big fan of the liquorice in this scent. It smells synthetic on me, and somehow doesn't seem to belong amid the rest of the recipe. I am going to wait and try it again during the winter and see if it behaves better in the cold. For now, I prefer Hard Candy when I have a huge sweet tooth.

Very Plain very good

I specifically went after Pink Sugar after I was told not to and boy was I glad. I think it smells divine and very plainly of ultra-sweet vanilla. I can detect the cotton candy scent in it but just faintly. I think the dry down and opening notes are all very uniform. It lasts a long time on me and like another reviewer said, if it's warm, the scent is revived a bit. From bottle to paper tester card almost everyone I know says it's awful but if I'm wearing it, I get compliments, even from my mother who deplores all things sweet and sugary in regards to perfume.

Pros: Long lasting

This one is pretty much unheard-of here in the UK, but l recently had the opportunity to try it thanks to a colleague, whose friend brought a bottle back from the States for her. l am surprised to see it has such a long notes list; (what on earth does Barba Papa smell like anyway?!) on my colleague it produces a huge but delicious sillage of warm vanilla custard, & that's it. On me l get more of the burnt sugar & tonka notes, & it lasts four to five hours. l can't quite give it a thumbs up, as l think it's rather too one-dimensional, & that l would quickly become bored with it. But it is rather lovely to smell on someone else.

My relationship with Pink Sugar is... well it's complicated. I loved this scent during undergrad years and after graduation but upon smelling it recently can't stand it. It is perfect for a young girl, at one point in my life it made me very happy. It smells like happiness itself I guess: sugary, fruity, bright, and dies down to a very very warm vanilla.

Part of my love for this fragrance actually came in the solid compact form. I still love my solid Pink Sugar but the solid fragrance smells much softer, more vanilla-y and warmer than the EDT version.

I think this is a great starter perfume and I have always had success with it for gifting preteens and teenage girls.
