reminder of youth
This perfume really captures the essence of fests and carnivals of my youth: I can smell the elephant ears, cotton candy, and whatever fried confection you can think of without having that greasy feeling on your clothes or hair. What's nice is the patchouli (my frenemy) complements all the sweet notes nicely, and I actually enjoy its drydown. This fragrance is very similar to Gold Sugar, except Gold Sugar is sweeter and New Jersey has more salted butter and vanilla to it. Longevity is average, but the buttery patchouli in the drydown is delicious.
