Fancy by Jessica Simpson?
I have a huge love affair with intensely Sweet/Sugary fragrances, and I'm looking for lots and lots of suggestions. I don't particularly like 'light' fragrances, I like medium to heavy fragrances when it comes to sweet sugary delicious scents. I've read many suggestions and sniffed out a bunch of perfumes recently, so let me lay out my scent profile and hopefully the suggestions will come rolling in!
What I've Tried and Liked in descending order:
1) Flowerbomb - Viktor & Rolf (Thoughts: Love the sugary afterscent)
2) Pink Sugar - Aquolina (Thoughts: Love the sugar but I wish the musk and spice was toned down some more)
3) Vanilla Blossom - LaVanila (Thoughts: A bit on the citrusy end, wish it was more sugary)
Suggested Sweet/Sugary scents that I don't like:
1) Angel - Thierry Mulger
2) Pleasure's Delight - Estee Lauder
3) Wish - Chopard
1) L de Lolita Lempicka: I smelled this fragrances off of a card sampler, and it was soooo sweet and sugary that I absolutely wanted to get it. So I walked over to my local Sephora, saw the bottle and sprayed it again... and I swear it was not the same fragrance! It smells nothing like the card sampler at all, what a disappointment. It was so watered down and smelled like rain and a dab of cinnamon? Nothing like the card sampler.
Thanks so much in advance, I am really looking forward to your suggestions!

I think By Killian's Love is a very well done sugary sweet fragrance. It's sweet and marshmallowy, and sort of like divinity, if you are familiar with that candy (we have it at Christmas in my family). And, on the other end of the spectrum, my Thanksgiving dinner scent, Bath & Body Works' Midnight Pomegranate is a sugary fruity scent that I enjoy. I layered it with Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir and it worked well. I'll come back later when I've thought of some others.
Fantasy by Britney.
- Hanae Mori Butterfly (similar to Pink Sugar, in my mind)
- Parfums de Nicolai Balkis (raspberry, Turkish rose, black pepper, coffee extract, iris, benzoin, vanilla pods)
- Ava Luxe Milk (milk, vanilla, musk)
- Yves Rocher Néonatura Cocoon (vanilla, patchouli, cocoa)
- Hermèssence Ambre Narguilé (benzoin, labdanum, musk, vanilla, caramel, honey, sugared tonka bean, grilled sesame seeds, cinnamon, rum, coumarine and white orchids -- has been compared to rum raisin cake or sugary-cinnamon-apple desserts)
- Philosophy Falling in Love (sugary blackberry vanilla musk)
These are some of my favorite sweets, along with Flowerbomb. Good luck with your search!

I don't know that I'd consider SL Chergui as a sugary sweet frag, but it does have a very nice sugarcube note in it. And it's definitely not light!
For sale: JL Scherrer parfum (reduced price) and more!

You should also try Alien by Thierry Mugler. It is definitely a sweet treat. I see you tried L by Lolita Lempicka. The original Lolita Lempicka is definitely a sweetie, especially when mixed with Victoria Secret's Love Spell. Also try Escada's Magnetic Beat and Moon Sparkle. I liked Moon Sparkle, but it didn't like me. These are a few that are sweet on me....
Coney Island....Bond No.9
Elixir Des Merveilles...Hermes
DKNY Delicious Night

Its an oldie, but you might like Casmir by Chopard.
Insolence by Guerlain is very sweet. Also concider Paris by YSL and L'instant de Guerlain.

Prairie Midnight Rain is insanely sweet.
L.A.M.B by Gwen Stefani is sweet if not sugary.
Cacharel Amor Amor was both I think.
"So many scents, so little skin"...
Antica Farmacista Vanilla, Bourbon and Mandarino of Sicily - it's sort of like a Dreamsicle
i Profumi di Firenze Vaniglia del Madagascar ~ very sweet, almost cake-like
Comptoir Sud Pacifique Matin Calin ~ Creamy, sweet and very comforting
And if you ever run across one, Susanne Lang's now-discontinued Ultimate Vanilla Set would be a great way to expore a wealth of sugary scents.
Try Givenchy Pi. Marketed as a masculine I think it is definitely unisex and chock full of sugary sweetness.

Sweet Oriental Dream - Montale

But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
Neonatura is sweet and to me it smells like sugar cubes a little.
Ooohhh I love sugary sweet fragrances also (see my wardrobe!)
If you like sugared almonds I recommend Ava Luxe's Amande Sucre AND Sinfonia di Note's Amande Sucre. Both are yummy..the Ava Luxe is sweeter and cheaper. The Sinfonia is more complex and quite beautiful.
Jalaine Vanilla is sweet and yummy, as is Montale's Vanille Extasy and Vanille Absolu.
I don't think Neonatura Cocoon is nearly as sweet as the above I've mentioned, though very nice and inexpensive (mentioned by several).
Socalwoman is right about the IPDF scent. They also make Vaniglia e Zenzero which is their vanilla scent with a kick of ginger
CSP makes lots of over the top sweeties...I love Matin Calin (already mentioned) and Vanille Abricot (which has a peach note in addition to the apricot).
Sinfonia di Note makes Coeur de Noisette which is hazelnuts and sugar and just delicious. It may be my next full bottle purchase.
Profumum makes Acqua e Zucchero which is awesome, and Dulcis in Fundo, and Dambrosia. Three beautiful sweet scents, but VERY pricey.
Serendipity 3 makes Serendipitous which is a very nice chocolate scent. I'm not big on chocolate as a note, but this is really great.
probably enough for now...I'm sure I'll come up with more. Look at my wardrobe and tell me if you want to try any (PM me)!
Seconding a few:
Acqua e Zucchero by Profumum - gorgeous, and the purest sugar frag I've come across - really does just smell like sugar, but high-end sugar, like if Heston Blumenthal decided to create his own cotton candy and serve it at The Fat Duck
CSP Matin Calin - Smells like condensed milk, and has a caramelized note in there as well.
Jessica Simpson Fancy - Sweet, a bit gourmand, and not too loud.
"It's now very common to hear people say "I'm rather offended by that." As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well so fucking what." - Stephen Fry
Fresh Sugar? It's not my thing, but it is sugary-lemon. Somewhat similar in the sweet-citrus genre and one I like much better is L'Occitane Honey and Lemon. It seems kind of sugary to me, not overwhelmingly honeyed.
Fantasy Britney Spears,Delicious Cotton Candy By Gale Hayman,Pink Sugar by Aquolina,Escada Magnetism,Betsey Johnson,Live by Jennifer Lopez (kind of fruity but sweet in my opinion)and Emporio Armani Diamonds (I was really impressed with this fragrance I didn't know it was sweet I like it alot).
There are many I forgot...
Loves True Bluish Light is a sweet vanilla musk
Pilar And Lucy The Exact Friction of Stars is coconut, chocolate, vanilla yumminess
Flowerbomb EXTREME...if you like Flowerbomb you might really dig this take on it
Vanille by Molinard
Chocolovers by Aquolina
Seconding Pink Sugar
Clear the house and make way for the King (Queen?) of sweet and sugar (and some spice!):
Serge Lutens Arabie and Serge Lutens Rahat Lakhoum.

On the low end: Stetson Untamed. About five bucks at your local drugstore. Smells just like burnt sugar with a mild green topnote. Weird as a masculine, but not bad for the dirt-cheap price.
Aquolina Blue Sugar
Apothia Velvet Rope
