Who called this an old lady scent? Some sensory impairment issues there. Old lady scents are heavy florals usually, of which this is the polar opposite. If anything, the complaint could be that it's too young with it's sweet, childhood candy tone. I loved it but it lacks lastig power and at it's price that makes it a no re-order for me. I'd go for Hard Candy which is sweet but lasts. Watch that cap on it, will drive you made. Remember the whole piece comes up.
This is Pink Sugar without a doubt but kicked up a notch with some different, spicer notes. Though the prevailing temperature is PS all the way. I love it both the lasting power, the scent itself and even the packaging and bottle. Winner!
Scent preference is ultimately personal, but this is a winner in most women's opinions as well as mens I should add. I avoid Estee Lauder having never found any of their scents to be "me" in any fashion. But EL has broke their mold with this one and now it's going to remain a firm favorite. Feminine, clean and mood inducing. That it has staying power is another bonus for me as that is always an issue with my particular body chemistry and results in my having to respray like a maniac. The sandlewood note reigns but in a unique fashion and the overall scent is unique and to my nose at least not reminiscient of any other perfumes I have used. Another bonus for me. EL has achieved something here that's for sure.
