    Default bubblegum cotton candy?

    I was walking behind a guy in school..smelt like candy...i actuallly liked it though. I thought maybe it was Gaultier 2 or Le Male..but I tested them today and it wasnt it.. it had MAJOR sillage..i mean MAJOR.

    any idea what in the world it could be? im pretty sure its not any JPG colognes. but i could be wrong.

    I don't know... i'm sure he got it at macys or somewhere nearby because he seems kinda..well..dumb. he was a gangter-ish type of guy..I was going to ask, but he probably wudda been like "***** get out mah way!" or thought I was crazy...

    I don't know if he seems the guy to go buy cologne offline.. I'm sure it was a retail store..and i dont think anyone sells blue sugar around my area

    i read in reviews about JPG smells like gum and cotton candy..but im not getting it..on my skin at least..maybe its the sillage that smells sweeter. i asked my mom she said its terirbly sweet..i dont detect it..

    I smell something very nice..but i have 4 colognes on right now lol...

    Le Male

    Versace Eau Friache

    Glaultier 2

    L'eau d'issey

    cant find out which one that im smelling!!! it smells sweet though...

    This would be my guess! Its available all over (unfortunately!).

    I get a similar impression of the description from Body Kouros.

    Should be Gaultier˛ - this has often been described as having a grape bubblegum note, and it IS extremely sweet.

    hmm I'll go back to the mall and try those ones out. Does anyone like that smell, anyway? Because at first I thought it was a girl wearing it...but nevertheless, I loved it.

    I really don't think it's Gaultier2, based on the description. On me, the grape bubblegum note is only in the first blast & disappears fairly quickly once on the skin. Once dried down it's like a sweet musk, but it's not candy-like at all.

    I don't typically like a sugary-sweet scent, but I like Body Kouros a lot -- it tempers the sweetness with a camphorous, metallic edge.

    Joop Homme is very cotton candyish . . . although there are some other nice notes waiting to be discovered.

    The first time I smelled Joop I was wondering who on earth would want to smell like cotton candy. Then I smelled it again a bit later and actually warmed to some of the other interesting notes there - so I bought a bottle.

    It's probably best reserved for special occasions, though - otherwise it gets a bit much. My bottle ran out a while back and I haven't felt any pressing need to replace it, although I may, someday.

    It's also one of the few fragrances that I've been complimented on (the others being Oscar, Havana and Envy).

    I bet that is what it was. I totally forgot about Joop! Probably because my bottle is buried in a box thats in my closet and i havn't worn it in at least 5 or 6 years. Actually, i don't think i ever gave it a full (just put a spray on the wrist) wearing. Maybe i should dig it out and give it another try...?

    I hated it at first, but it kind of grew on me, until I had to get a bottle.

    It's definitely not for everyday usage, though! It needs the right mood . . . It also reminds me of a certain children's mix cooldrink at times, which can be a little, err, disconcerting.

    From your initial description, I too think it is Joop and it can be smelled from literally 50 feet away.

    Where can we place bets because I know I'd be a winner! It has to be Blue Sugar and if you smell it long enough you get sick just like if you ate too much cotton candy

    b men smelt musky, no? i thought i tried it already. gosh..i'll never know unless i smell it again and just ask.

    It was a DEFINITE sweet cotton candy/marshmellow smell...not subtle. It had no incense, like Body KOUROS does, it had no musk... just sweet.

    If I smelled cotton candy, my first thoughts would be Hanae Mori or Comptoir Sud Pacific - Vanille L'abricot. CSP's vanille is pure sweet and smells very much like cotton candy.

    Cool Re: bubblegum cotton candy?

    I dont hink he wear this one, but if you like that smell try Guerrilla 2
    By the way Gaultier doesn't smell like bubble gum, smell like rotten disgusting male makeup with outdated vanilla syrope.argh!

    Also, as further suggestion: CK One Shock.

    Even more surprising, while most or all of these notes seem hinted at (in my opinion and to my nose at least), these very notes are not being overpowering, excessively sweet, nauseating, immature nor too generic, plus, the cotton candy and bubblegum notes linger on along with a hint of tobacco and even some additional bitter-sweet gourmand notes (maybe
    raw vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee).
