    Default Sweet licorice fragrances

    I'm looking for scents that smells like sweet sugary licorice, in the same vein as Au Masculin and Blue Sugar, only I want something sweeter! I would be more than happy to wear feminine scents aswell, I don't mind!

    No leather, incense or woods please!

    Do you have what I need?

    Thanks!

    Aomassai in the dry down turns into just about everything I hate! Incense and woods and leather :/ The opening is beautiful tho, I really love the opening!

    I get strong licorice notes from L'Instant de Guerlain (not even the Extreme version), Sculpture by Nikos and CK One Shock (neither contains leather notes, but they might include some marginal hints of woods or even incense).

    Have you tried the female Lolita Lempika? It could fit the bill.

    I have smelled both original and Extreme, no licorice there. Those scent aren't even sweet, to me at least. :/
    CK One Shock is a good fragrance, I hope I could get the licorice notes you get from it!
    I will have to check Sculpture by Nikos out. Thanks for comment!

    I owned the Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise for a while, but it was too expensive root beer for me -- worked out great for my roommate, though.

    Dior Eau Noire has a licorice note and a sweet immortelle one. Some find it too sweet.

    I know it's anise, but Kenzo Air always reminds me of licorice.

    Probably the only thing that will satisfy your sweet tooth is Demeter Licorice.

    Most perfumers don't want to make something that's just straight up licorice candy. If you want a more sophisticated, less sweet take on black licorice, try Brin de Réglisse from Hermès.

    Never smelled this, but body sprays often have that sweetness that you're describing.

    I thought licorice too. Just licorice and vetiver. Good stuff in my book but it's not super sweet .

    Immortelle infused with lots and lots and lots and lots of licoice, Dior Prive Line's "Eau Noire" conceived by Francis Kurkdjian, i believe.

    Lolita Lempicka au Masculine is one of my very favourite frags.

    I cannot stand the taste of licorice but I just love the way LLAM blends licorice with absinthe, rum, a hint of ivy, and a warm cuddle of vanilla. Just gorgeous stuff, and I'm really not a big fan of many vanilla-strong fragrances.

    I much prefer LLAM to Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, which to my nose at least, is an overpowering scrubber.

    B men is the one that reminds me of licorice.

    I love eau noire, don't know if it fits the bill (its not what i call sweet, and i also have a fondness for sweet) but its really nice

    Th one I think would really suit you is L'Occitane Immortelle Eau de Parfum which smells like ultra sweet liquirce and Palma Violets. It's incredibly powerful and lasts for days. It is quite hard to find now.

    What few reviews on this seem a bit mixed at to whether it has a leathery touch or its sweet but ill throw it out there for your consideration:

    Myrrhiad (Eau de Parfum) by Huitieme Art
    Notes: Myrrh, black tea absolute, vanilla, licorice
    "Geez, when are the 'We love Aventus' T-shirts coming out?"
