Scentroulette Day 6: Sugarwood by Costamor

Sugarwood by Costamor starts off with extraordinary unpleasantness, a thin, greenish sweetness which is claimed to be sugar cane and fig but which conjures up a melted vinyl record and burnt sugar, ladled over with the sort of sweet generic fruitiness that is the curse of modern mass-market perfumery. It is less awful as the top notes eventually skitter away, but still nothing I'd ever care to put on my skin, a sweet floral, not particularly noteworthy. The base notes may be delightful, but I'm not sticking around long enough to find out. This one's a scrubber if ever there were one (and like all scrubbers, it lasted through a shower and will require extra attention to remove).
