Before we got into home fragrance I was a baker. At one point I worked at a gourmet catering company in the bakery department. One of the signature deserts was creme brulee cheesecake with brittle topping. We would make caramelized sugar, let it harden on a sheet pan, and then break it into brittle for a dramatic display on top of the cheesecake.
After making 60 or so of those cheesecakes, I really got to know the smell of caramelized sugar. There is a point just before it burns when the fragrance gets really deep and the color turns golden. Wait a few seconds too long and the whole this turns black, smells bitter and burns. But catch it at it's peak and it's heaven! That is what the Jonathan Adler Sugar candle smells like to me. Perfectly caramelized sugar. Warm and comforting.
I'm a sugar addict, so I could layer this candle with just about anything, like:
Voluspa Santiago Huckleberry if you really have a sweet tooth.
Lafco Penthouse (Champagne) and Red Flower Italian Blood Orange - like a sugar-rimmed mimosa.
Voluspa Baltic Amber if you wear turtlenecks under your sweater.
Tocca Bianca if you like sweet tea.
Nest Grapefruit if you sprinkle sugar on top of your grapefruit.
Monique Lhuillier Pink Peony if you still have pink in your bedroom.
Voluspa Tuberosa di Notte and Voluspa French Bourbon Vanille for an even better Fleurs de Fete fragrance.
Burn quality 4/5. Fragrance intensity 4.5/5.
