Because if you do, Aquolina's Pink Sugar might just be the scent for you! ;D I've always been really particular about my choice in scented products be they lotions or deoderant, and when it comes to perfume, I'm even more picky. Though I love my grandma, I don't want to smell like her signature perfume powder that she layers on, nor do I want to smell like a stripper. I just want something innocent and playful. Flirty, too, perhaps, and just overall smells yummy.
In my quest for such a perfume a few years ago, I turned to some online beauty communities and forums and the majority of the ladies there recommended Aquolina's Pink Sugar. So I hit up Sephora, tested it out, walked around the store and shopped for a while, smelled it when dried, fell in love, and was totally sold. I ended up purchasing their Pretty in Pink boxed set (I don't think this is always available), which included the perfume, body mousse and lip gloss.
The ladies on the board and my friends have said that it smells like a variety of things, always on the sweet side. From cotton candy, cookies, to marshmallows, and creme brulee, it's always on the sugary sweet, dessert side. I think that it smells like caramel with a hint of vanilla. Not buttery caramel, but just browned sugar. Well, whatever it smells like, all I know is that it smells good and I get compliments about how I smell yummy all the time.

Oh, and as if I weren't already sold on the scent, I also love the packaging! I'm a girly girl who digs all things pink (well, most things, at least!). The perfume comes in a cute pink and white candy cane striped case and the actual bottle itself has pretty metallic ribbon stripes on it. And their other packaging design motifs include pink swears. I know, I'm a sucker... :)
Aquolina also makes a ton of other products with this same scent, from lotions to shower gels and even spray on deoderant, so check 'em out if you want to smell sugar sweet!
I sometimes wish for a time machine that will transport me back to a time when life was less stressful and more carefree; a time when my biggest concern was who I was going to ask to Sadie Hawkins or go with to the town fair on Friday night. Luckily, we can take an olfactory time warp backwards with Pink Sugar, a delicious body spray that tantalizes the senses with cotton candy and carefree times. This spunky, sweet eau de toilette has notes of Bergamot, Sicilian Orange, Raspberry, Fig Leaves, … more
