Date: 8/22/08 Weather: 70 degrees, sunny

Comments: Pink Sugar with a hint of bitterness. The bitterness makes it less cloying. After an hour – fades significantly and becomes a floral, slightly musky vanilla. Still that hint of bitterness. 90 minutes in – jasmine and honeysuckle notes appear and strengthen among the marshmallows. 2.5 hours in – the flowers disappear, the vanilla stays, and I wind up with a waxy, almost play-doh note. 4 hours in – vanilla musk, which lasts (very close to the skin) for the next 8 hours +.

Date: 11/4/08 Weather: 55 degrees, rainy, evening

Comments: Berry flavored cotton candy. Becomes more floral as it dries down but still very sweet. Next morning, a slight vanilla musk. It seemed really sweet – maybe too sweet for a good sleeping scent last night.

Date: 12/31/08 Weather: 36 degrees, windy

Comments: A very expensive version of Pink Sugar. Not bad. Hour 6 – picks up a strange rubbery note, which may be more a result of my screwy sinuses than the scent. Maintains a vanillic musk for the next 4 hours. Very faint 11 hours later, but can still catch it on my clothes.
