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.

Jovoy Rouge Assassin Fragrance Review

* Rouge Assassin starts strong, with iris and resins.

* Yes, this one is aggressive and quite loud with an intense smell of dirty lipstick.  Dirty as in sexy, not filthy.

Smellbent Lady Gogo Fragrance Review

* Lady Gogo starts of fruity with a mix of orange and lemon.

* The citrus stays present for quite a long time, which is quite surprising as those notes usually burn off quickly on my skin.
