copied from a review I did on another website:
I didn't like the top notes when I first tried this; they smelled like tropical fruit creme brulee, which is an odd mix. The top notes went away after about 20 minutes and left a delicious, creamy coconut dessert. I was hoping the sandalwood would give the fragrance some depth, but I never detected it in my wearings. It's less complex than the original Pink Sugar flanker, but I'm not complaining. If the licorice note in Pink Sugar bothers you, give this a try. It's not a groundbreaking perfume, but I don't find it boring at all--Gold Sugar is a comfortably sweet perfume without giving your nose a full out "toothache". I find it a fitting flanker for the Pink Sugar line moreso that Sparks does.
Longevity is not as long as Pink Sugar; at most I get 4 hours of wear from Gold Sugar.
