I'm jumping on the bandwagon for this!
FIrst, yes, this is another one of those perfumes with a bad opening. In CG's case, the unpleasantness is over within a minute or two, but while it is bad, you are afraid you have just entered the anteroom of 1980's tuberose stinker hell. There's a sense of the bitterly strident sourness. But suddenly the clouds part, and you're left with...
A lovely sandalwood spice, with a warming and slightly tart fruity middle and a very graceful jasmine/rose floating throughout. I didn't get SuperSugar!!! or even carmella notes. The sweetness, on my skin, was minimal in fact, and I'm not even sure I could honestly say there's vanilla in here. Well, maybe a touch on the topnotes, but not huge vanilla declarations. It doesn't have a ton of lasting power on me, but at this price, who cares?
I also didn't get killer sillage -- a nice, mid-range sillage with not huge projection. The spice, btw, is not coming to my nose as cinnamon, just as a spicy-sweet woody edge not unlike Organza Indecence. In fact, one could say this was like OI but with a fruity/tart middle and a strong floral presence.
