Hitting the Sweet Spot
For many of us, there was no better feeling as a kid than eating your favourite candy. We can all remember that ecstatic feeling when you got candy as a treat, whether at your grandparents', the doctor's, or during Halloween. As adults, although we might not indulge in candy the same way, it is still a taste and flavour we love to go back to. If you want to recreate that childhood feeling and be enchanted back in time with sweet smells, plenty of candy-smelling perfumes on the market today will give you that same nostalgia.
Usually, candy-like scents are found under the 'sweet' perfume category. Similar to vanilla or citrus scents, these perfumes consist of a blend of edible components that will remind you of candy. For example, these sweet-smelling scents usually have hints of vanilla, fruit, chocolate, or tones of actual candy. Many womens perfumes today can mix these smells together to create a sweet scent but more on the adult side.
Read on to discover the top nine perfumes that smell like candy, and give them a try today!
