Thread: Blue Sugar

  1. #1

    Default Blue Sugar

    I just wanted to get some of your thoughts concerning Aquolina's Blue Sugar for Men. I've tried this before and like it but have had the compliment made by someone around me that something smelled like cotton candy. Do you think it is too feminine and/or for kids?
    Thanks, Brandon

    Even the name sounds feminine and/or childish. But that is just me, I'm generally not into overly sweet fragrances. Really the most interesting, attractive and wonderful thing you can be is yourself. Not to say you can't get suggestions and input from other people but in the end it has to be what works for you.

    The name sounds unappealing to me and I tried it at Sephora and I didn't like it at all. Way too sweet without anything else to balance it out.

    WAY too sweet!

    Smells just like cotton candy. I guess if you want to smell like cotton candy, go for it.

    If you want a sweet fragrance (but no where as sweet as Blue Sugar) with a little more class and complexity try Hanai Mori or Rochas Man.

    They should've called this BURNT Sugar. It's really unappealing. It smells like burnt cookies. I can't imagine anyone wanting to smell like this - man, woman, or child.

    I have decided gourmand (sp???) fragrances are not my forte'. If they were, Blue Sugar would be at the top of my list as it smells so authentically like cotton candy and sugar.

    I disagree with a lot of you. I think the black licorish smell is way more noticable than cotton candy.

    I got a sample from Nordstrom's. I thought it was awful. Anybody who likes
    A-Men would love this stuff. I won't say which Nordstrom though. (To protect
    the salesgal.) My Dad cringed when he smelled it.

    I don't think it is feminine so much, but I definitely think it is for someone very young. I imagine this on someone that is still in school or is mentally still at that point in their life. Not the smell for a professional in my opinion.

    I'm a neuro sugeon and I love to bathe in it before surgery.

    An alternative to anesthesia for patients, perhaps ?

    You need to try fragrances from Serge Lutens.

    I find it overly sweet. Not really feminine, just too much sugar. The SA at the Nordstrom near me said it has not sold like they expected it to.

    I've heard 2 things:

    1. It smells better than Pink Sugar
    2. It smells like maple sugar candy flavored with black licorice (if such a thing existed)

    Not sure if those are good or bad comments....

    Blue Sugar is going so cheaply now (about US$7 for 50ml) that I've bought some back-up bottles. The dry-down reminds me a lot of A*Men minus the cavity causing caramel. BS also is free from A*Men's horrible tar note. Blue Sugar's liquorice is quite unique (better than that of Yoji Homme I thought). It really grows on you if you give it time. Oh yes, sillage matches longevity, in my experience. My secretary smelled "chocolate" in my office!

    I tried it out because my wife is a big fan of Pink Sugar and I figured for $13 shipped off eBay what could it hurt? It's pretty decent and I think the more I use it the more I like it. I use it on days where I don't want to waste any of my good stuff, but still want to smell non-offensive.

    Recently aquired this, 50ml for £2.50! Bargain. Smells okay, Anisey burnt sugar, very potent, could see it being a casual one in the winter/fall/autumn for basic un important activities
