This is Pink Sugar's twin sister. They both smell very similar to each other. Cotton Candy smells fresher to me, reminds me of spring, while Pink Sugar has more of a warm feel. The only think i don' t like is the top, it is cheap plastic that doesn't stay locked in place.
This perfume was too strong for me. The citrus scent was too biting and it gives me a horrible headache :(. I wish there wasn't that strong citrus scent, I love the smell of cotton candy.
I bought this at WINNERS in Canada on a whim...went home and loved it! I then read all the comparisons to Pink Sugar...so since DCC does not come in a travel size, I picked up the PS roll on. I like Pink Sugar, but DCC much better!! I wore DCC out to dinner with a friend of mind who loves sweet stuff and she went crazy for it...next time we went out to dinner I bought my Pink Sugar roll on and she liked it but said the 'spicy' note at the beginning turned her off...it was good but she loved DCC way better!
The thing is, the 'spicy' note of PS is what I think makes PS a little more 'grown up'...in any case, DCC is not sweet in a cheap, barbie perfume way...while it's very sweet at first it dries down to a warm, sexy fragrance. And it lasts! Men really dig it!!!
The only thing I don't like is the bottle...it takes up way too much room on my perfume tray (it's short and squat) and I find it awkward to spray. Not a fan of the cap either. PS has got it beat in that area. But in terms of price, fragrance, and lasting power, it's a small price to pay for a great fragrance!
I just bought this super cheap on eBay - $20.99 including shipping. Unfortunately, mine didnít come with the silver tone cap but with a transparent pink plastic one. This does not smell like Pink Sugar to me, because it doesnít have the burnt note that I picked up in Pink Sugar. GH Delicious Cotton Candy has a bit of citrus brightness in the top, and then it smells pretty much like freshly spun warm cotton candy on the carnival midway. The dry down is soft and sweet and vanillic. Here are the notes: orange, bergamot, clementine, cotton candy, lily of the valley, fig leaves, brown sugar, strawberry, plum, licorice, vanilla, caramel, cedarwood and musk. I donít get the cedarwood or licorice, and I canít actually pick out the individual notes except the citrus in the top. Iím *really* enjoying this. It doesnít smell too cheap and sleazy, but itís not trying hard to be artsy either. It just smells like it says. If you like sugary scents you canít go wrong here. This one hits the nail on the head. I'm glad I bought it even though it was a blind purchase.
In response to Rocki (and I donít think youíre being mean), I donít think itís that grown women want so much to smell *like* Cotton Candy as they just like smelling it. For some of us it represents nostalgia and happy memories. Some of us just have a sweet tooth. I think itís great that we have the category of confectionery/gourmand fragrances to enjoy now Ė rather than eating it we can enjoy it calorie-free, lol! I suppose some people find gourmands sexy. I donít particularly, but I do enjoy them, more as comfort scents I suppose.
Im not the greatest at reviewing scents but Im going to do my best on this one. I got this on Perfumania for super cheap it was around 15$ and its a pretty good sized bottle. I really love the way it smells, I love sweet smelling perfumes. I cant really compare it to Aquolina because Ive only smelled it like once a long time ago at Sephora. But I really enjoy wearing this and layering with other sweet scents. Im not too sure on the lasting power of this though. Because I get used to wearing a fragrance really fast and it gets to the point where I dont really notice it anymore. I was at work the other day and a customer told me I smelled like cotton candy and she was across the counter from me LoL. I on the other hand couldnt smell a thing so yeah. But I'll probably repurchase this because I do like it and its really cheap! :D
Okay, not trying to be mean here, but why do so many grown women want to smell like cotton candy? I've never understood that, and never will. I think, it's harmless, and it doesn't matter if someone likes it, but just curious, as to why? Maybe, that would smell good in your house, but on yourself, too juvenile, but to each their own. I have found, that most men, like more spicy or womanly scents. Fendi, and Jungle by Kenzo, has gotten me the most compliments. I once wore this sweet candyish scent, and it just made most people nauseous...lol... Vanilla, is the only scent that I think is sexy for women, in the "sweet" category.
OMG!! DELICIOUS COTTON CANDY IS A DEAD ON DUPE FOR AQUOLINA PINK SUGA!R!!!!
If you hate Pink Sugar, stay away from this because its exactly the same BUT BETTER!!!
I sprayed PS on my left arm, DCC on my right arm, let them set then sniffed. PS has that sorta sharp opening note; almost ciric, a little like windex. DCC immedately opens up with that soft sweet sugar powdery scent that PS gets only on the dry down. It also lasts all day just like PS and I got a 3.3 oz bottle for less than a smaller bottle of PS. So for me Delicious Cotton Candy has taken first prize in my quest for a sugar sweet scent.
The only thing PS has over DCC is the packaging; DCC has a squat bottle with a tacky plastic cat on top. Silly. I find the long sleek bottle with the swirl design of PS packaging much nicer looking but for the diff in price and quality, I will deal with tacky!
Bottom line, if you ADORE PS, try this! You too will become a convert!
I bought Delicious cotton candy for my daughter who is 16 and she used it up within a month! She loves it and keeps reminding me she needs another bottle but this time I may get one for myself.It does smell exactly like cotton candy and yes it lasts and lasts! I got it at Marshalls for 15 dollars as well and I am hoping to cop 2 more bottles.
I love this cotton candy . i love sweet scents and i pair it up with body fantasy cotton candy lotion, cotton candy body spray and i smell good enough to eat all day i love it.
This is hands down, the BEST Pink Sugar replica I've come across. It's almost identical but is a bit fresher. In fact, I think I like it better than PS. After reading some great reviews about it, I started to order a bottle online but got lucky and found the 3.3 oz at TJ Maxx for $14.99. Excellent staying power + instant compliments = HG find. I love it!
