Summary: Okay, so I bought a mini bottle of this at Burlington's for $6 after reading the reviews on here and while I like it, on my it runs straight to sugar. It's all vanilla and caramel. Almost syrupy. The first spray is wonderful, has gardenia and musk, but after an hour or so, it turned straight to powdery vanilla and after another hour I found myself wanting to eat my arm. It's WAY too sweet.
Summary: Not a gourmand at all though I believe the vanilla dominates slightly over the sandalwood and powder. Almost a ringer for the powdery sandalwood anise grape of Lutece, if you too feel its absence in the marketplace and in your collection. Buoyed by the sandalwood and powder, the vanilla reminds me of soft serve ice cream and is quite harmonious with a sophisticated, mysterious overall mood.
Excerpt: I've been looking for a new perfume and this is the one my boyfriend liked (some perfumes give him headaches). It has a sweet smell (reminds me of vanilla/candy/li hing mui) and is a very girly scent. The fragrance isn't very strong, but it does linger/last which is nice. I use it almost every day (work and home).<br /><br />The packaging and detail is nice, but I don't really care for the shape of the bottle..
Excerpt: Nice fragrance. Soft sweet vanilla with refreshing fruits.<br />This product took 6 weeks to get to me. Was meant for a gift. Not impressed by FragranceX. Need to put some sort of sticker or code on delivery box to say that it's perfume. <br />Won't be buying from FX again.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Value, Not Overpowering, Sensual
Summary: Can't say I hate it, can't say I love it... I bought it because it was supposedly sweet & candy-like, but I was a bit disappointed with the overly floral notes that seem to come out, overpowering the caramel, and the alcohol smell in it. Reminds me of a really exceptionally good smelling hairspray. I sometimes wear it to the supermarket, lol.
Summary: Fancy was a blind buy. I read only a few reviews but was obviously convinced enough to make the purchase. I was not impressed on first sniff, I thought the opening smelled exactly like Incanto Charms-which is ok but not my favorite scent. I had grown tired of the honesuckle jasmine combo and was a little let down. However, after that moment passed and the scent developed a little, it made such a good impression on me. It was sweet and vanillic but it had this fruity?
Summary: I am not a gourmand/sweet scent lover. Britney Spears Fantasy, Flowerbomb and Viva la Juicy all either give me a headache or smell like artificial lollies- which in my opinion is an inappropriate aroma for someone my age. This, however, is the exception. When I first smelt Fancy I was unimpressed. I don't know whether it was the weather, my skin or the particular fragrance hunt I was on that day but it slipped straight through my fingers.
