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!

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 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.

Another great cheap find! I will never fun out of this, like previous reviewers it is a great dupe for Pink Sugar without the huge price tag. This fragrance makes my honey want to lick me (which isn't a bad thing), seriously though he comments every single time I wear this! It is certainly a keeper & I will never again purchase PS now that I have found a better long lasting version! Can we say awesome!?!?

Wow....is all I have to say about Delicious Cotton Candy. I have always wanted to try it because I am addicted to Pink Sugar. I wear Pink Sugar morning, noon and night, every day. So when I saw the great reviews of Delicious Cotton Candy, I wanted to give it a try not thinking it would be nearly as good as Pink Sugar. Wow, was I wrong!! First of all it is super duper cheap. I bought it at Burlington Coat Factory for $14.99. A HUGE difference than paying $60 for PS. But it's the scent that got me. It is almost identical to PS but without the strong spicy note you get when you first spray it on. It smells delicious, sweet and lasts all day on me! I bought it 5 days ago and already used 20% of the bottle! lol If you never smelled Pink Sugar than you're missing out! Cotton Candy is the first note you get with it, but there is SO much more. It's also a little fruity and has a bit of a "punch" to it. I never thought I would like anything better than Pink Sugar, but Delicious Cotton Candy converted me!! If you're a PS addict like me, you HAVE to try this!!!

I am a big fan of anything that smells like cotton candy, this is my favorite so far and the price cannot be beat! The bottle lasts a really long time too and that makes it even better. I always get compliments on it because the smell is just noticeable enough and never offensive......I use this as my daily scent, light and sweet ;)

Everyone is right this is Pink Sugar without that annoying burnt note. I love this, its super sweet and last a long time. I was using Prince Machabelli Cotton Candy to avoid the burnt note in the Pink Sugar but the Prince Matchabelli only lasts a few minutes on me so not I can throw it in the trash. I just hate the bottle on the Gale Hayman, why a cat? the cat part looks stupid and cheap.

I bought this for 13 bucks 3.3 oz thats super cheap. It kind of reminds me of a yuong girl smell. Oh well I can't complain it was so cheap. It is strong but dies down to a nice cotton candy smell. This scent is so simple that I got tired of it. It is okay to keep in the rotation though.

I never really appreciated this perfume until I had the chance to eat warm, freshly made cotton candy. The scent that emanates from warm and fresh cotton candy smells exactly like this perfume. I agree that this perfume is similar to Pink Sugar, but Delicious Cotton Candy is blended better and doesn't have that disturbing burnt note to it like Pink Sugar does. I wear this whenever I want to remember the smell of the fresh cotton candy I ate or whenever I feel girly or feel like being cuddly. I wouldn't wear this to work, but I might wear it out if the weather is cool enough. As for the bottle, I actually think it's cute, but I wish the cap fit on tighter. I'm a cat lover, so I enjoy looking at the clear pink kitty on the top :o)

Smells just like 'Aquolina Pink Sugar', but 'Delicious Cotton Candy' is slightly more bearable because it doesn't linger as long on my skin. Has warm vanilla notes in this which can get a little cloying (in my opinion). Not an everyday scent for me, but one that I would reach for in the colder months because I tend to gravitate towards the gourmand scents during Winter. A cheaper dupe compared with 'Pink Sugar'.

I just bought this dirt cheap from ebay based on the reviews here. But Im disappointed, it doesn't smell like cotton candy to me at all, in my personal opinion. I like Body Fantasy cotton candy better. My daughter said that this smells like Pink sugar.
I think I will give this to my daughter and I'll stick to BF cotton candy that smells more yummy to me.

It's freezing and rainy again today; what a perfect day for a cozy comfort scent that other people really enjoy too... Delicious Cotton Candy actually smells better and lasts longer on me than Pink Sugar, which has a citrus and licorice aspect that I could do without. Just a little bit is enough to make me smile for the whole day. Yum. It doesn't get flat in the drydown either (like Pink Sugar does on my skin). And, it's very reasonably priced.
