So here goes. This might sound raunchy, but ever since I went to the strip club in L.A. back in April, I couldn't get that stripper scent out of my head (my boyfriend says I think like a guy), but really I just wanted to smell like that because it's so sweet and pretty. So I end up looking online for what a lot of strippers wear as perfume and Pink Sugar by Aquolina came up a lot so I went and smelled it at Ulta and ever since then I have been crazed and I think about the perfume every day like a weirdo. I bought the perfume originally from walgreens.com, but it didn't have the brand name on it. Now I'm sure it was authentic because I trust Walgreens, but I think it's stupid that Aquolina wouldn't put their brand on the bottle or the packaging. That bothered me and so I returned it. And for some reason, it didn't smell as good as the one in Ulta. Well I bought the gift set because it came with the 3.38oz hair perfume that I have been dying to purchase, a 1.7oz EDT, and a little lotion (I think it should have been bigger for the cost!!!). But either way I "saved" some money by not buying these items separately.
1.7oz EDT: Yum. Yum. Yum. I'm floating on clouds every time I wear this. If you don't know what Pink Sugar smells like, it's a caramel cotton candy vanilla scent, but not like those Body Fanstasies sprays which are OK, but very synthetic smelling. I'm not huge on perfume terminology, but all I can say is that this EDT last longer than most my EDPs.
3.38oz Hair Perfume: This adds a light hint of Pink Sugar to the hair and it lingers. You can definitely smell it. I can't get enough of this scent.
1.75oz Lotion: Smells great, but the texture is very slick and not creamy at all. Actually it says cream on the tube. Oh well, I bought the set for the other two items anyway.
Eitherway, I think this is a decent deal if you are in looooove with Pink Sugar like me :)
Extra tid bit:
Love's Sugar Kiss by Dana smells similar to Pink Sugar and is a cheaper alternative. I read that it is a decent dupe, but I don't think it quite matches up in lasting power or sweetness. Sugar Kiss is softer like it has more musk in it. It's a cologne mist so that explains the lasting power. I love it although I have to spray a lot of it. Try to catch it on sale.
