I love this but at 33 I'm getting a little too old to pull this off. I'm not saying this is a "safe" frag for teens who are trigger-happy with the sprayer, it's just not a very "mature" scent. The name says it all, I need not go into any detail on the fragrance notes. It's fairly linear, it just tones down into a very sweet vanilla. Very long-lasting, I'll get 10+ hours. Seems to be EDP strength, and a great affordable gourmand. One of my faves, but not very masculine.
Diabetes in a bottle
The Good :
This is the closest thing to Gourmand you can get! It is Gourmand with the capital G, this scent totally smells like a vivid candy dream.
Its very natural smelling in a way that everyone in my area asked me if i burned some marshmellows or ate some cotton candy when i sprayed a spritzzz on my wrist.
Its grabs your attention because the sweetness covers all air in a 20 foot radius.
Opens as 50% liquorice 40% cottoncandy 10% Anise
Then evolves to 99% cotton candy caramel sweetness.
The Bad :
Drydown is the only bad part after a few hours this scent get cloying in the drydown it loses its structure and gets annoying.
Too bad otherwise i would rate it
Thumbs up for the scent till drydown.
Pros: Eatable fragrance and delicious for women
Cons: Bad drydown, breaks in pieces"
The name says it all. If your not a gourmand lover this might be outside of your scope. For me the longevity and projection sucks but on close encounters it works wonders.
Blue sugar is exactly what it says, "sugar." it smells really good. It is cotton candy at the carnival or fair. It is very mild and sits real close to my skin. I think it is for a younger crowd like teenage and high school. It doesn't change much at all. It's just sugar candy and that's it. If you are looking to smell sophisticated this is not for you. I wish it were stronger but it works for me.
Looks like a love or hate one this doesn't it? I think it's a long lasting vanilla gourmand with a cotton candy start and an "Amen like" drydown. Because of the vanilla, the sillage and longevity are very good. I like it.
