I had obtained two sample vials of this scent with a couple of purchases, and after some time, decided to make use of them. The first vial I used, I had loved this scent. It started off sharp and sweet, and dwindled down to soft, musky, and sweet like chocolate! I don't know why, but I loved how it smelled on me. I thought for sure that when my current stash of perfumes would dwindle down, the first scent I would buy to replenish said stash would be this one. However, when I started using the second vial, I could barely smell anything. To make matters worse, what I could smell I did not like. Very sickly sweet. Almost plastic like. I am contemplating throwing away the remaining amount in the sample vial. I thought it was just me, or that I had received a bad sample. However, upon reading other poor reviews at Sephora.com, I realized it was not just me. What the heck, Prada? Why the inconsistent, half-baked, poor formula?

I really like this fragrance! I got it after purchasing a Sephora sampler kit and this was my favorite scent. I also bought a rollerball for my teacher who comments whenever I wear it.

i love this scent for everyday but I om wish it would LAST! I can't even smell it!! Maybe it's because I only have the rollerball but... I worry because I'm afraid of using too much because I can't smell it! It's expensive too so I would like to not go through a roller ever month.

That aside, I feel like this is the first sweet perfume that doesn't make me gag-I dot. Love all the Victoras Secret perfumes and I normally don't like sweet smells except for some of the Demeter scents, but I like this and I feel like it's unexpected on me Bc I usually only wear musky scents. I will give the big bottle a try but I think I could find something that lasts longer on me for the price.

Beautiful sweet fragrance but a true waste of money nonetheless. I used this liberally several days in a row and not one person, friends or family, could smell it standing a few feet away from me. Only when they were practically on top of me could they detect any fragrance. I would get more satisfaction from a $10 bottle of Bath and Bodyworks body spray. This expensive bottle of nothing gets returned tomorrow.

I adore this fragrance so much! I love the sweetness, the warmth, the way this lingers as warm caramel, vanilla sugar and ends up being a sensuous sweet musk. Candy is an updated vanilla fragrance, not at all like the cheap body sprays that I wore as a teen.

This is a very seductively feminine fragrance, which although is warm and enticing, it has a cleanness to it which keeps it modern. I have read reviews of this that compare it to a sweeter Infusion D Iris, and that is exactly what this smells like to me!

This also really lasts on my skin, for which I am very grateful. I only own the rollerball for now but I will definitely buy a bigger bottle.

I love it. I had no idea it existed. I had mentioned to DH that I wanted Pink Sugar, but when he went to get it for me at Sephora, they didn't have it. They recommended this and he purchased it for me and I am so glad. I love PS but this is even better because it's sweet without being too juvenile. It's grown up sugar. :D

Definitely sweet and sugary, but not head-ache inducing. I prefer this to Pink Sugar and the only thing I can complain about is that it doesn't last too long on my skin. Luckily I have the rollerball so all I have to do is reapply. This would be perfect for the fall and winter. I get whiffs of caramel and vanilla that doesn't overwhelm. I would buy this again.

Good smell. Doesn't last at all though. In 30 minutes it's vanished. Waste of money and space.

This smells like a more subtle version of MV2, the discontinued Mac vanilla fragrance with a gold cap. A soft, creamy, goody vanilla. More grown up than Pink Sugar. This wll be perfect in the fall and winter.

Really a 2.5 for me. I didn't like the scent right out of the bottle, too sweet. After a couple minutes it turned into a nice warm scent, what I had wanted YSL manifesto to smell like on me (for some reason it turned into a completely different scent on me). The problem is that after a few hours it turned into a just caramel scent and then nothing at all. Too bad. Would not repurchase.
