Delicious Cotton Candy is a very youthful, sweet scent. Hints of cotton candy, vanilla & powder sugar. Got this at Ross for $10.99, so it was very reasonably priced. Very similar (& cheaper) to Pink Sugar, except Delicious is mainly an airy cotton candy where Pink Sugar goes hard on a cinnamon, marshmallow scent. The bottle is another story...the feline cap makes the bottle smell like plastic, overall, its a great perfume! continued >>
I wanted to get this after I tried Pink Sugar, and I think this is much better. I really didn't like the licorice smell from pink sugar, so I wanted to try something similar with less of that smell. I found Delicious Cotton Candy at Ross for about 12 or 13 dollars so I thought it was worth buying. When I opened the package, it seemed to be leaking and it had a yucky burning smell. I wanted to throw it away but I found that the smell came from the plastic cat-shaped cap. I threw that away and the burnt smell was gone. The perfume itself smelled nice and sweet. It really does smell like cotton candy with hints of fruitiness. Some hours later it smells like marshmallows. It's not too strong, but lasts a while. I would buy this again
I am a big cotton candy fragrance fan so I do LOVE the scent but I absolutely HATE the bottle!!
I really like this perfume!!! It smells just as a perfume from Beauty Control (Brown Sugar). It's very sweet like real cotton candy!! I would buy it again, I don't like the bottle but I do like the price!!
If cotton candy is what you want to smell like then look no further than Gale Hayman's (who is she anyway?) Delicious Cotton Candy. It is a pure cotton candy scent and cannot be mistaken for anything but cotton candy. It is similiar to Pink Sugar but not as complex as Pink Sugar. Delicious Cotton Candy does not have the added praline, caramel, ice creamey, just baked belgium waffle notes. It is solely cotton candy and is silky, fun, and naive like a young child. I feel kind of silly wearing this but if i want to make a weird impression i wear this. Also, i think the bottle really suits the scent. A gorgeous shade of pale pink (just like cotton candy) with a cool mountain lion for the cap.
So I've worn this fragrance for a few days now, and I must say I'm very impressed with it. It's smells deliciously sweet and not overbearing. It smells of fresh warm cotton candy first, then a few minutes later I get a licorice scent, which isn't terrible because I really like licorice, and I think it makes this particular fragrance unique. The cotton candy scent lasts the whole time, it's just not as powerful as it is at first spray. I get a few fruity notes, but they are very faint and just kind of compliment the sweetness of the cotton candy, not make it stronger and annoying. Another thing that makes it different is it doesn't have that burnt sugar smell like so many others. The silliage (sp?) is amazing. I can smell this stuff on me for hours (granted I don't do a whole lot of heavy activity that involves sweating which would wear off the perfume). I really like it. I'm glad I purchased this and not Pink Sugar like EVERYONE else, it seems. And it was less expensive too :) Highly recommend!
One thing I hated is the plastic lid. It smells like plastic chemicals sooo bad, yuck! The lid is cute though; it's got a lioness or something on the top... it just smells like plasticy awfulness. The perfume itself is totally opposite though.
I did a comparison of this and Pink Sugar. This is not an exact dup of Pink Sugar. I have them both and I tested one on each arm. DCC is much better in my opinion. PS has an annoying burnt smell at the beginning. It becomes more bearable as time goes by and softens up. DCC smells more divine, delicious and not annoying. It smells of vanilla, sugar, caramel and cupcake with a hint of sophistication. The staying power is the same; lasted a few hours on me. Wish I could return PS but I'll just keep it till it runs out. But I will definitely buy another bottle of DCC for backup. It's much better and cheaper too.
This is a very cheap costing dupe to Pink Sugar (which I also like.) I paid $10.00 (I had a credit to get this down to $10.00, HOWEVER, it is normally $12.95 at Perfumania and they gave me free shipping .... you can't beat that.) Delicious Cotton Candy immediately smelled exactly like Pink Sugar to me ...... the only difference between the two is that Pink Sugar is a bit more sharper ....... I own both now and will continue to use both, although I do like that for the exact same scent I can get Delicious Cotton Candy for alot cheaper than Pink Sugar.
I agree with the other reviewers who said this is a good dupe for Pink Sugar, but is not an exact dupe. It's a bit less complex than Pink Sugar, but I like it because it is lighter and "softer" than Pink Sugar and has less throw. It also does not have the burnt sugar top note that Pink Sugar has. For the price, this is an amazing perfume!
I like this, but it's not my favorite Cotton Candy fragrance. Nice, soft, and sugary on me, but there is a slight citrus note that annoys me. Its definitely a more sophisticated cotton candy scent. Very feminine and ladylike. This is a great scent for woman who like cotton candy, but are afraid they may smell like a 12 year old. The bottle is butt ugly. It doesn't compliment the scent or look cute displayed.
