comme des garcons 2
I think it might be useful for some basenoters, who are looking for candy like fragrances, or definitely not lol
So here you go..
"What are the fragrances that reminds you of candy / bubble gum ?"
From the samples I' testing right now, I got this vibe from :
"mandorlo di sicilia" by Acqua Di Parma
Also I think of "one million" by Paco Rabanne
(Sorry in case this had been done before)

L'eau by Diptyque smells like cinnamon bubblegum
1 Million by Paco Rabbane
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Obvious choice Encens Et Bubblegum ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE
Everyone is recommending fairly expensive perfumes here! If you want bubblegum you can get it easily for a budget price. ('m talking £5 a bottle) I recommend this:
My 12-year old daughter wears it. Pure bubble gum!
Bond no. 9 - Andy Warhol Success of a Job in New York = Double Bubble Bubblegum and Vanilla spice. Closest gum fragrance that i have smelled over 1 million
Diptyque Oyedo, fruit candy or gum in a good way.
I always thought Jaipur homme edp had a bit of a bubblegum note to it.
For those about to stink, I salute you!
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Armani Emporio He
A bit of bubble gum in Hugo by Hugo Boss. When I first started wearing Boss Bottled, I thought it smelled bubble gummish as well.
For about the first hour, I get a pretty solid 'bubblegum' vibe from Caron L'Anarchiste....then it dries down to cloves and spices and the bubblegum completely vanishes, but out of all the frags I've tested, I think L'Anarchiste has had a stronger bubblegum note (to my senses at least) than any other.
It's probably more my nose than anything though, as I haven't heard 'bubblegum' applied to it in any other reviews. *shrugs*
+1 Encens et Bubblegum and +1 Oyedo. Both are inedible bubblegums, which is what makes them very wearable.
Gaultier2 does smell like bubblegum, but it's a nauseating, horrific fragrance that no one should be subjected to.
I think Usher's UR for men has a bubblegum smelling base. (It kinda has a melon & herbal top with a sweet bubblegum smelling middle & basenote. It sort of has the vibe of Cool Water with sweet bubblegum mixed in.)
Oh and fwiw , Carnal Flower has a Wrigleys Juicy Fruit note thing going on too ...
1 Million - Smarties
Joop! - ...
Curve Kicks - Berry Candy/Berry Kool-Aid
Gaultier 2 - Grape Bubblegum/Buttercream
Fuel for Life - Bubblegum/Fruit Punch
Pure Malt - Gummy Bears
Dolce the one gentleman is bubblegum
Escada Magnetism smells like grape candy to me.
Power 50 cent - guava bubble gum
Asprey Purple Water - grape kool aid with only 1/2 the sugar they suggest
Prada (purple pour homme) - smarties / lik-m-aid grape powder
Nicolai Cedrat EDC - the white lemon part of the bomb popsicle
Amouage Opus IV - certain fruit bubblegum I've had before plus frankincense smoke and cumin
Why there is no fragrance which smells like Fruit stripe gum I'm surprised.

HM by hanae mori smells like candy
Vera Wang - Princess.
Lady Million. A person told me Happy Men smells like bubble gum but I disagree.
Pink Sugar, Hanae Mori...
Agree on 1 Million. Smells like tutti frutti bubblegum. Miss Dior Cherie also has a candyish vibe going on, reminds me of a berry chapstick.
Invasion Barbare gives me that candy vibe.
Sculpture by Nikos gives me a feeling on smelling on very sugary candy, more like a single-note sugar lump
Versace Eau Fraiche
( I'm kinda curious to try Success Is a Job.... now though, I kinda love Double Bubble - then again I despise SB and 1M )

Armani Code Sport...opening is pepper/ginger with a hint of lemon. Wait 2-3 hours depending on the climate and bam Bubble Gum hits in the dry down. Anyone else get the bubble gum dry down in Code Sport?
The sweet Tubereuse in Jar - Bolt of Lightning is a dead ringer for 80's Anglo bubbly bubble gum.
Candy: Joop! Homme, Original Santal, Escada Magnetism, Taste of Fragrance (reminds me of mexican chili candy)
Bubblegum: 1 Million, Spicebomb
Rootbeer: Mandorlo di Sicilia, Bois D'Argent, Activist by the Body Shop
Ice cream sunday: Hanae Mori HM, Angel Men

+1 One Million by Paco Rabanne, Gaultier 2 by JPG, and (the drydown) Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf.
Although this is a gorgeous juicy scent, Olympic Orchids Red Cattleya sometimes gets a fruity bubblegum note (though I still love it) which would usually put me off in a fragrance.
Perfume appeals to my nose the way music appeals to my ears, exquisite food to my taste buds, photography to my eyes, and great loving from my man to my sense of touch.
I can safely conclude, then, that PERFUME IS ART in its purest form.
As an artist, I therefore have a responsibility to buy as much perfume as I can. You know, to learn about art and all.
V&R spicebomb smells like big red and Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin smells like rootbeer candy.
Robert Piguet Fracas
