Fragrances I Love: 10 Delicious Scents

So, last week I may have mentioned that I have this odd fascination with smelling like food… But not just any food. I’m talking sweet treats. Desserts. Candy. Confections. Ice Cream. Chocolate covered strawberries. Things you might find in a bakery. Things you might find in a coffee shop. Things that are made with at least a pound of butter and sugar. If it’s vanilla, chocolate, coffee, or caramel scented? I’m there. Here are my top 10 delicious scents I can’t live without.

Best Sweet Fragrances

Candied Caramel Pecan Body Wash. From Ulta. Oh my gosh. It smells just like Butter Pecan Ice Cream. And I don’t really eat butter pecan ice cream, but I think it smells wonderful. This body wash smells even better. I think I would like to carry it around with me all day. Ulta? Are you out there? Could you please turn this into a lotion? And body spray. And anything else you can think of? And I will buy it. kthxbye.

Best Sweet Fragrances

Ulta Shower Smoothies. Chocolate Milkshake, Buttercream Cupcake & Cinnamon Roll. Oof. The Chocolate Milkshake makes me faint every time I come near it. It’s wonderful. I think chocolate is one of my favorite scents. And I haven’t seen the Cinnamon Roll at my Ulta yet?!! Cinnamon Rolls? Heck yes. Is there anything else I’d rather smell like? I don’t think so.

Best Sweet Fragrances

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Appletini Body Mist. Mmm… This smells like a candied apple. And it leaves a little bit of a shimmery sheen. Fancy.

Chocolate Strawberry Fondue Body Mist. I found this at CVS of all places! It’s wonderful! It really smells just like chocolate and strawberries. *chomp*

Victoria’s Secret Caramel Kiss. Oh my goodness. I admit, I have a slight obsession with body sprays, but this is one of my favorites. I don’t really even know how to describe it, other than delicious. And decadent. And sweet. And delicious.

Best Sweet Fragrances

Victoria’s Secret Coconut Passion. It smells sooo sweet. With just a light hint of coconut. Perfect.

Best Sweet Fragrances

Tree Hut Brazilian Nut Shea Sugar Body Scrub. Oh my gosh. Oh my goodness. Oh my gracious. This is the best stuff on the planet! Okay, besides the fact that it’s the perfect combination of shea butter and sugar scrub, and leaves your skin perfectly soft, moisturized and exfoliated.. This stuff smells amazing! Like chocolate and coffee and ice cream and mocha, and every good and perfect scent from above.

Best Sweet Fragrances

Tree Hut Brazilian Nut Shea Body Butter. The body scrub smells amazing, but unfortunately it doesn’t last much longer than the shower, so I always follow with this. BTW, I got mine at Ulta, but I also saw them on Walmart’s website, so maybe they have it there too?? :)

Best Sweet Fragrances

Savour Choco Latte. I found this at Target and I love it! :) It smells just like a chocolate milkshake with a slight hint of coffee.. Ooh! You know what it smells like? This. Just like that. It’s perfect! :) Definitely my favorite lotion.

Best Sweet Fragrances

Victoria’s Secret Cupquake Beauty Rush Lipgloss. Tastes like a cupcake. Yum!

♥♥♥

What are your favorite fragrances? :)
XOXO…

They have several I want to try! :) Belgian Waffles..Hot Cocoa.. Waffle Cone??! :) I always pause when I see them at Ulta.. :) I haven’t gotten any yet because they are just a little expensive and my Ulta won’t take the coupons on them. Bummer! Maybe for my birthday. :D

I have to be very careful about fragrance of any kind because most of them give me an instant migraine. I can’t wear any kind of perfume, but I can tolerate some lotions and body sprays. My favorite is Victoria’s Secret Strawberries and Champagne. I have worn it for so many years that every time I run out I am sure it will have been discontinued.

I love dessert/food fragrances as well! You have to seek out some Jaqua products. My Ulta sells them and I’m sure you could purchase online too. They have some of the most authentic food-smelling products I’ve ever used. Buttercream frosting, chocolate marshmallow, peach parfait…they smell amazing and they are great products, too!

Have you tried pink sugar perfume? You can get it at nordstrom or sephora or probably any department store. It smells just like cotton candy. I wore it for a few years and need to get some more. I love smelling sweet and sugary! Thanks for the other recommendations!

OMG Amanda , we are kindred spirits!!!!!! I have cup quake lip gloss in my pocket or purse all the time .I love appletini . Yes I’m obsessed with smelling like sweet treats too . My two favorite scents in the world are Pink sugar Which smells like cotton candy ,caramel a hint of vanilla and last but not least Gale Hayman’s Delicious Cotton Candy. Which is very similar to pink sugar . Order a sample and give them a try. I’ve literally had people chase me down and ask me what I was wearing ! I fell in love with these scents because they remind me of my childhood.

My favorite is Aqualina’s Pink Sugar perfume, lotion & sprtitz. It smells like cotton candy with a hint of vanilla!! Whenever I wear it I see people looking around to figure out where the cotton candy is! It’s sweet, but not too overwhelming, and just a fun perfume :o)

My favorite body spray is a coconut and lime fragrance. Sadly I don’t remember who made it, the bottle got a hole in it and I put it in a generic spray bottle. I love just about anything citrus, such a “clean”, refreshing feel.

I also love bath and body creamy coconut. Anything coconut or vanilla or sugar cookies makes me insane! Glade plug ins used to have a scent called grandmas cookies, it was the BEST ever but I cant find it anymore. Philosophy has a great line of scents, what is it about sweet treats that smell sooooo good on you?! What about the scent of a baby? Can someone make a body spray that smells like that? And not no loves baby soft either.

I’m having a giveaway right now come one come all and check it out!

Hi Amanda! I have to admit, I’m not really in to the whole smelling like dessert thing (hey, to each their own!) but I am REALLY in to citrus and more natural scents. My favorite candle from Yankee is called Sage and Citrus, and I love basically any scent that has anything to do with citrus, sandalwood, lavender, sage, mint, anything along those lines. One of my favorites is B&B Works Eucalyptus Spearmint. So relaxing.

By the way, I know that you love to write about cooking and different products you buy. I’m hosting a giveaway of a great all-purpose sauce on my blog. Don’t know if you’ve tried it before, but you should check it out.

Thanks for sharing your favorite scents!

Hi Amanda! I am soo like you and have the same affinity to food smells. Maybe it’s similar to comfort food or something…I’m not sure. Thank you for all the great recommendations! I especially want to check out Tree Nut Brazilian Hut duo because I am a huge fan of shea butter. But I also have to chime in on the Aqualina Pink Sugar fragrance. It is absolutely my favorite fragrance of all… It smells so yummy! I feel like sweet cotton candy when I wear it. It picks up my mood and my boyfriend absolutely loves it too! He calls me his sweet little piece of candy when I wear it! :)

Who doesn’t like the food smells?! You simply MUST try Philosophy!!! Go to Sephora, subscribe to their newsletter. It goes on sale eventually or you can get these fabulous SETS at the holidays!! Think Gingerbread Men, Marshmallow, Sugar Cookie…. YUM!! At the very least, go smell them at a Sephora store…. they are among my favs and fabulous products. :)

Dolce and Gabana : Light Blue

Juicy: Couture

DONT LAUGH, but.. Jessica Simpson: Fancy Love (sooooo warm and yummy)

all my scents are on the warm smell side? That is the best way I can describe. I like musky smells too – no roses, no gardenia.

I love carmel – or vanilla ANYTHING.

Dont laugh.. but – Carlos Santanas perfume for women (it’s in a firey orangey reddish bottle and smells DIVINE!

Cheapest and BEST of all:

Caress: EVENLY GORGEOUS BODY SCRUB/SOAP – Burnt Brown Sugar, Karite Butter. This stuff is crazy yummy and you can get it at your local grocer or at Rite Aid or Longs CVS or Walgreens etc. Wal Mart and Target too. This stuff NEEDS to have a body spray made of it. I highly, highly recommend!!!

*sigh*

I wished I were going somewhere so I could justify using my perfume. We are so broke, I have to save it for special occassions.. (that’s sad!)

Have a lovely smeling day ladies!!!

Amanda, everytime you post on a new topic I’m blown away because it seems like we’re long lost soul sisters. I wish I lived closer because I would live to have a close girlfriend who shares so many of my interests the way you seem to. Anyway, my favorite scents are citrus and fruit. Let me know if you have any great suggestions. I’m always looking for another great citrus scent. My latest favorite is from Bath and Body Works – White Citrus. Keep it coming. I love your blog and wish I had more time to add posts to mine. Amy
