    I've never found a scent I liked!

    Hmm, I think it might be a translation problem. It's got red and black currants in it, not blackcurrant. Currants are basically raisins. (Only noticing here because I absolutely can't stand blackcurrant but I love Eat Me.)

    Different smells/colors, same perfume

    I don't have this particular scent myself but I've come across this happening before. Anne Beany in particular - I have two bottles I got straight from the lab, and they act exactly the way you're describing. Maybe it's a particular component that does it :/

    Cozy scents

    Dragon's Blood and Tombstone are two of my favourite warming cozy scents. They both make me feel extra comfy and cheerful.

    I've never found a scent I liked!

    Ooh yeah, I love foodie scents too! I don't think any of the scents on your list quite hit the mark if that's what you're looking for...I second the recs for Eat Me and Knave of Hearts. Dragon's Milk is also goregous and warm and sweet and creamy as a scent. Bordello is also very nice and fruity. Then of course there are the LEs you might be able to find - Gingerbread Poppet, some of the recent Liliths (an old Lilith that is an AWESOME foody scent is Anne Beany), lots of the Yules and Weenies. Any of the Beaver Moons are guaranteed to be foody too. Sugar Plum Fairy is also lovely, there's a hairgloss of that currently up on the Trading Post.
  5. Tamora is one of my favourites and I think it's perfect for summer, it feels like wearing sunshine to me It's a GC so no trouble getting it as an imp. "Amber, heliotrope, golden sandalwood, peach blossom and vanilla bean."

    Long lasting "light" scents

    Thalia is one of my favourite light scents, and it tends to last for ages (on me, at least!) It's "Plumeria, pear and white champagne" and while I don't tend to like boozy scents, and pear turns awful on me, this combination somehow works beautifully. It's light and sparkly and has the lightest hint of fruit - it reminds me of butterflies flitting from flower to flower in the bright sunshine.
  7. I'd definitely recommend Boo for that! Sugar Skull too. Boo is a light and fluffy sugar, rather airy, so probably the closest to what you're looking for, while Sugar Skull is more of a deliciously strong sugar...I imagine it's very much what melted, pulled sugar would smell like.
  8. Definitely adding to the recommendations of Sugar Skull! And while harder to find, you may also like Gluttony and Pancake Breakfast, those are both terribly sugary sweet, I love them but they always have me heading for sweets, haha.

    Sprinklecake

    This smelled quite lovely to me in the bottle - very reminiscent of Eat Me without currants, or a bit like Cake Smash but younger, more playful. Wet on my wrists it went strongly to a plastic/playdoughy smell that almost had me washing it off right away, but I'm glad I gave it a chance. After 15 minutes of so of playdough it softened up to a light, airy, sugary cake smell, shot through with vanilla. It still smells a bit weird up close but is lovely at a short distance - sadly it doesn't have much of a throw on me at all. I'll probably be keeping my half bottle of it to use now and then when I have the time to let the playdough wear off, and to see what it's like when I've let it age a bit more, but I don't think I'll be going crazy to find more. It's a nice addition to the Lilith series, definitely, but sadly not an instant favourite with me like I was hoping for.

    Knockout Drops

    The bourbon vanilla and white chocolate convinced me to give this a try - alas, while it's a nice light blend in the imp, on me it immediately turned sharp and overpoweringly lemony. Kind of like those wet napkins they give you in restaurants to wipe your hands with? I have no idea how that happened (why do you hate me, skin chemistry!) It's not an unpleasant scent, but just not one I want to wear

    Bones Trombone

    That lemon meringue and hemlock had me worried but I got a decant of this anyway - and I'm so very glad I did! Usually I'm not too good at picking notes out of an imp but this was delicious the minute I opened it. Yummy yummy pie crust and fruit. Wet - more delicious pie crust and blueberry, with just a tiny hint of lemon underneath giving the scent a bit of zest. Dry - hardly morphs at all, and I still love it! This is a new favourite for me

    The Kingdom of Sweets

    In the imp - extreme blast of sugar so sweet it was nearly sour. Not quite what I was expecting but certainly fitting the description. Wet - wow this one is strong. All manner of crushed sweets, and although I usually love sugary sweet scents this one tips over into being too much for me. It reminds me slightly of Sugar Plum Fairy, but that one is a lot more delicate and smooths out differently. Dry - Mostly jellybeans now. I like it better this way, but I think I'll have to stick to lighter scents. It does perfectly fit "Kingdom of Sweets" though.

    Tamora

    This has become one of my favourite perfumes to wear for spring, it's beautiful and light, warm peach with a delicate floral scent underneath, very feminine. Strangely it's not the kind of scent I usually go for but I fell in love with this as soon as I tried it on (so glad that I have a bottle!). And in spite of being a very light and airy scent it lasts for absolute ages. It's lovely.

    Sundew

    I have no idea what my skin chemistry did to this one - in the bottle it was a lovely golden glowing scent and then on my wrist it became...Pears soap and baby shampoo? It was really weird and sadly I had to wash it right off, it was far too soapy for me.

    Whoop

    The description and my initial sniff of the imp had me so hopeful! It was the most delightful combination of Christmassy scents. Alas, my skin chemistry. As soon as I put it on I could smell nothing but strong, sharp pine. There's the tiniest hint of cranberry underneath but I only get it when I hold my wrist right to my nose. The pine did mellow down after a while, but the other notes refused to come out. I'm so sad, I was prepared to love this one.
