About this deal

I've come to appreciate it for what it is, but I've accepted its not for me and my tastes but if you wear this just know you smell good!

I really like it, it is a winter fragrance, especially for the Christmas period, it smells like dessert, it evokes that lovely cosy aroma of love and happiness that spreads all over the house, like the steamy fragrance you get when cooking the Christmas ham with pineapples, cherries and honey. Final verdict: I LOVE this, definitely will be great to wear anytime I want to smell like sweet cotton candy tropical flowers. i was hoping it'd become less pungent as the day went on, but that nasty scent is still all i can get from this multiple hours later.

Sorry but, THIS IS the gourmand cotton candy, caramel fragrance ALL the celebrities (and other brands) are TRYING HARD to copy.

My partner wouldn't allow me to purchase Pink Sugar Creamy Sunshine as he was quite disturbed by the sheer sweetness of it. I was gradually able to identify the scents from my childhood that it mimicked: a vanilla hand sanitizer from bath and body works, the frosting on a cupcake at a classmate's birthday party, scented strawberry-shaped erasers, a cotton candy lip smacker, and a plastic doll that'd just been taken out of its packaging. I find myself reaching for this more often than any of my other, more expensive perfumes, even before work, and every time I ask myself if I'm too grown up to smell like a unicorn. Right now it's winter for me so I may update later with how it works in hot weather, but that's my theory. I can understand why people might like this which is why I'm saying it needs to be tested and not saying outright that it needs to be thrown in the bin and discontinued.That being said, I still get complimented on this all the time and I will purchase a 30ml just to have. She picked up on the vanilla caramel, which is what I'm wearing most of the time but I couldn't get over the intense, in your face powdery smell. But I would wear it casually hanging out with friends, or going to the fair, or even at night time watching TV with some fun jammies on.

This scent takes 80% of Pink Sugar DNA with a blast of orange and a bit of white florals in the opening. The sweet and seductive base is composed of vanilla, caramel, and musk, providing a warm and sensual feeling. It smells like licorice, cotton candy and Barbie doll (it has a synthetic, powdery, sweet scent that is reminiscent of the soft plastic that doll heads are made from, maybe that's just me though).

The drydown is licorice and caramel, so go for it if you want to smell like a pack of freshly opened twizzlers.

The only thing I got out of Creamy Sunshine was watered down white floral (the main note to my nose), some sugar, a slight bit of orange, and some creaminess. Niche brands usually want to appear as if they are above gendering perfumes but most unisex scents are created either by removing both feminine and masculine traits, making it smell bland and generic, or clashing them together which works out as often as it doesn't. I am a platinum blonde teen girl so this scent speaks to me, and I 100% believe I am one of the people who can pull it off. the first few times i wore this the greener notes really threw me off, but since it dries down to a nice vanilla prominent scent i kept wearing it and i am so glad i did! I'd never smelled anything similar, save for Juice Bar Cotton Candy (I turned all the waitresses onto it in 2001 at the restaurant I worked at.

I for one can't feel any coconut, gardenia or ylang-ylang, not to mention the sandalwood (where's that ? I was so hoping this would be a super sweet (so many people said it was too sweet for them) cotton candy/sugar scent. It’s sweet, can feel juvenile at times with the cotton candy but that burnt bourbon vanilla note gives it some age. I don't think it is primarily a cotton candy fragrance, but more of a burnt sugar/caramel/almond scent. To prolong the scent of the fragrance, we recommend using products range as shower gel, body lotions or deodorants.
