Pink Sugar description
Aquolina’s Pink Sugar is a gourmand fragrance Willy Wonka would love. It’s tangy, bright, and mischievous, with a lip-smacking, astonishing burst of ripe red fruit running through the entire composition.
Pink Sugar starts with a tart smoothie of bergamot, Sicilian orange, and raspberry top notes. This juicy trio has a hard candy-like feel, and tremendous lasting power. The raspberry note is the centerpiece, with the orange and bergamot taming its neon bright edges. The opening blend is hypnotically delicious and is enough on its own to merit sampling this perfume.
The heart notes of fig leaves, Lily of the Valley, licorice, strawberry, and a red fruit accord take their sweet time in arriving. The bouncy raspberry fades down into the plush, dark fig as the strawberry and licorice begin shaping a new red fruit theme of round, lush, fruit-infused spice.
The brightness from the opening also fades in the heart, and transforms into a quieter, denser, and more typically gourmand profile. While the straveberry note and the red fruit accord keep the juicy pop front and center, a rich, vanillic accent begins tugging at the hem of the tangy fruit, paving the way for a decadent base of pure dessert notes.
And when the dessert arrives, it arrives right quick. The yummy candy strawberry note gets swallowed up by a dense flood of vanilla, caramel, musk, powder and wood nuances, and cotton candy.
Suddenly Aquolina Pink Sugar drops you into the Midway of a giant carnival, with every delectable taffy treat and chocolate-coated confection there for the taking. It’s as if the red fruit theme echoing in the top and heart notes is built up as a jammy blockade to keep the deepest gourmand layers in this fragrance from roaring up out of the base.
Pink Sugar is a delightfully done, mischievous, candy floss of a fragrance. The red fruit theme running through it is bright, tangy, and charming, with its electric, addicting raspberry and strawberry notes. Aquolina’s Pink Sugar is a must-try for jaded gourmand fans who might want to venture out and try a lighter, carefree version of a dessert scent. There is a lot going on in this fragrance, and all of it is tempting and delicious.
