Cotton Candy, Strawberry & Lime Zest

Recommended Posts

Strawberry sugar and a whiff of lime zest. Honestly, this smells like pink strawberry candies. Very sweet, very sugary, mondo throw on me.

this smells so familiar.

 

i haven't sniffed it in years - maybe i'm thinking of the Spinning Multicolored Metallic Pinwheel one from a decade or so ago? 

 

i don't get that plastic-y strawberry, this is more like the one from Strawberry Moon.  i'm not getting cotton candy or the zing of lime zest - but i am getting something more like key lime pie (which, honestly, i prefer over lime zest... and i love cotton candy but these days it tends more towards that blue raspberry thing and not what i remember it being like).

This is very similar to Drag on a Slime, except strawberry cotton candy instead of guava sugar. The lime is really shining through on me, I'm starting to suspect lime likes me. On me, the strawberry is 'fluffy'. Not a juicy on the vine strawberry, more like a strawberry..... I don't know? The equivalent of a strawberry pie filling mixed with cream? Strawberry ice cream? I'm guessing it's the cotton candy aspect doing that, because I sure can't pin this strawberry down. The lime is distinct. 

 

Verdict: fun, summery, sweet and a bit playful. This would work on a young girl too.

 

Edit: Interestingly enough, 3 hours later it smells like key lime pie. Cool.

Wet: I LOVE strawberry and lime together, and that's what's coming out swinging here! I'm not getting any cotton candy (yet).

 

Dry: Welcome to the party, cotton candy! In order of strongest note to least - strawberry, lime, cotton candy. Kind of reminds me of a strawberry pie with lime zest? Definitely foodie and sweet.

This is delicious! :yum: I love the BPAL cotton candy note; my all-time fav is Midway, but this is like her fun younger sister. I get each note quite distinctly while wet, and the lime is perfect for a tangy balance to the sweet. The strawberry is least dominant on me, which is good as my skin does tend to turn it to plastic (notable exception: Strawberry Moon). Dry, the notes blend into cotton candy with a slight fruit twist. Strong throw, and very summery!

Wet:

 

Strawberry Sour Power.  The Lab is killing me with these smells from my childhood.

 

Dry: 

 

The citrus note didn't linger.  All I've got is sugar with a whiff of strawberry now.  I can barely smell it which means I can give someone diabetes six feet out of they pass within social distancing parameters.

Wet:

The Lab's "sour candy" note plus a hint of powdery cotton candy.

 

Dry:

The cotton candy note has gotten stronger and vaguely disturbing. It's burnt sugar and a bit of strawberry jelly.

 

Several hours later:

This is the good part! The sweetness has become a kind of powdery floral, and the lime zest lends some bitterness to round out the now-soft sweet-and-sour.

Initial blast of tart lime. Love that. It dries down to mostly cotton candy though, which is more sweetness than I prefer. I can see why foodies love this!

This is a super candy shop blast on me.  It reminds me of those expensive German strawberry candies initially, amped up to a zillion.  Dries down to a general cotton candy candy shop thing. Medium throw and wear.
