Pinrose Sugar Bandit Fragrance Review

* Starts with a soft hint of Play-Doh – with a mix of burnt sugar and caramel.

* Actually, that’s not really fair – the “Play-Doh” accord burns off quickly and the caramel gets stronger.

* It gets sweeter as white chocolate and vanilla joins the caramel.

* I find myself wanting to lick myself around this point.

* The sweetness is grounded by creamy sandalwood for a long-lasting base.

Summary: Sugar Bandit is a really fun scent to wear.  It skews very young with the sweet notes, though it reminds me a bit of Guerlain Gourmand Coquin.  It stays present for a long time but it is never too dense or overwhelming – it feels more like a cloud of sweet air around you.  It reads more feminine, but a guy could still pull this off.  If you like sweet gourmands but don’t want to spend a lot of money, Sugar Bandit is worth testing.

Votivo Dulce Caramelo Candle Review

* As soon as you open the box, you get a whiff of sweet caramel.

* The caramel is neither cheap-smelling nor synthetic, it’s what I would imagine a Guerlain caramel would smell like for their Les Elixirs Charnels line.
