Aquolina Blue Sugar

Notes: bergamot, tangerine leaves, star anise, ginger, licorice, patchouli leaves, lavender, heliotrope, coriander, caramel, vanilla, cedarwood, tonka bean

After the huge success of Pink Sugar, Aquolina has put out a man's version, called, similarly enough, Blue Sugar. The opening notes are strongly anise-y, both the woody herbal tones of star anise and a sweeter licorice. There are also hints of citrus and lavender hiding behind the anise. Overall, however Blue Sugar is a woodsy scent wrapped in a cloud of cotton candy. It's sweet, like it's sister fragrance, and I can't imagine any man wearing it. (Neither can Mr. Minx.) On me it's quite nice, very different. Almost like a less-obnoxious, heavily-sugared Polo for women, if one could imagine such a fragrance.
