So, what’s on your fragrance want list at the moment? I recently did a blind buy of Ellis Brookyln Sweet during the Sephora Sales Event and it wasn’t quite what I thought it would be. I mean, it isn’t bad but it doesn’t live up to its name either! The notes include pear, ambrette and marshmallow but there’s also orris in the mix. I think the combo of ambrette and orris make it more of a masculine gourmand. I thought it would be a fluffier scent if that makes sense. It’s still lovely but yeah, not sweet by any means.
But I think I’ve found my next sweet fragrance and I’m gagging to try it. Should I blind buy it?
Michel Germain Sugarful is a new Eau de Parfum that launched for Spring 2020 and the reviews have been excited to try it. I will say that Michel Germain isn’t really on my fragrance hit list. I find his stuff either smells like a bad version of Pink Sugar (P.S. I hate Pink Sugar don’t throw rotten tomatoes at my head! I prefer Delicious Cotton Candy by Gale Hayman!) or it just smells really cheap! Like something you’d purchase for $9.99 at the drugstore. I dunno his stuff just doesn’t hit right for me.
When I first came across Sugarful I was convinced it would be Pink Sugar reincarnate. The thing is Michel Germain already has a Pink Sugar dupe so, I wasn’t sure where or how Sugarful would fit into the range. I started reading reviews on Fragrantica and people are saying it def isn’t a dupe but it does have a cotton candy note with softer, sweeter florals. Notes include Sparkling Tangerine, Wild Strawberry, pink peony, cotton candy, sandalwood, and musk!
Hmmm…..! I dunno if I should blind buy this one but count me curious.
Anyone sniff it?
What fragrance are you gagging to try?
