Here's what other people are saying about Chia...
Interesting how moods or just the day (if that makes ANY sense...) can affect a perfume.. Tried Chia 2 days ago, late at night ( I was not wearing any other perfume) and did not like it: all I got was baby powder and then about ten mins later,nothing. 2 days later and it is a different scent on me. It IS very similar to Aquolina Pink Sugar - which I like but feel like I am too old for that scent now ( I just turned 44) Chia is like an Italian, classier version than that. I feel like I am still at the carnival of Pink Sugar but am on any of the rides, just watching..

Wanted to love this so much but all I got was an overwhelming powdery scent for about 15 mins then nothing (and a bad headache..)

If you like Acqua e Zucchero, you'll like this. Chia is maybe a little softer than AeZ, like sugar water on a cloud, instead of straight-up sugar water. I can understand the comparisons to Pink Sugar but when you sample them at the same time, this makes PS smell very cheap and chemically. Chia and AeZ are 2 of my favorite fragrances ever! I adore Chia! I always get compliments and I can't stop inhaling the scent! Chia is sweet but not cloying and definitely fit for a lady. Well worth the $!

I was stopped on two separate occasions--'what are you wearing?'Both people loved it and so do I.

I understand the comparisons to Pink Sugar as the initial blast is very reminiscent of it. Chia however is much more subtle with more restraint and sophistication. Powdery and nutty blown over with syrupy sweetness and with a slightly floral dry down. Very pretty but definitely sweet all the way.

Color: Neon light blue. All I can say is that I think I just came up for air after swimming through a cotton candy machine doused with milk chocolate and funnel cakes. Not bad if there is a craving but I never want to stay there too long. For my taste, this frangrance is too sweet, too heavy, and too inticing for big bad wolves or a swarm of bees to come and eat me alive. That being said, dry down allows for some florals to appear although too short for significance. If you want to exude the essence of sweet candy, this is the fragrance for you! Very sweet.

Full bottle worthy on first whiff. Love!

As someone who loves pink sugar but wanted something more sophisticated, I had high hopes for Chia. I get this burning plastic note out of Chia. So for only $40 pink sugar is a far more natural and appealing scent.

Did not agree with the pink sugar comments. Did not smell like that on me. This is a great smelling scent but it is very light and the scent completely vanished within about 2 minutes.

yuck! I just didn't like this scent. Maybe it was my chemistry and on others it would smell nice but on me it wasn't good. Cara is much better by far.

Yes, it's VERY similar to Pink sugar, but better, less cheesy somehow.

It does smell much like pink sugar and Acqua e Zucchero- cotton candy. They all have slight differences and this time the pricing does reflect the quality of the product. This is better than pink sugar but the scent and lasting power do not compare to Acqua e Zucchero.

smells just like pink sugar, short lasting. i love cara, but chia was below my expectations.

perhaps too powdery. there's something a wee bit medicinal about Chia . . . Summer's Eve? yikes.

Okay. I get the Lea reference, and even the similarities to Pink Sugar. However, Chia is quite glorious in its own right! Italian? Yes. Expensive? Yes. Gorgeous Almondy Deliciousousness that you can't say no to? YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!

If you're in the market for a high end version of Pink Sugar, this might just be your cup of, um, cotton candy. It's a charming, nicely-done scent, but even for this fragrance snob it's too similar to the far less expensive Aquolina fragrance to warrant a purchase

This is lovely but reminds me so much of St. Barth's Lea which I already own!

I used my sample of Chia this morning and when I ran into my 4 year old goddaughter she said I smelled like "cake"! It's true that it has a very warm, comforting vanilla scent to it.

Love it, but it's so similar to Pink Sugar that I won't pay the $$$ for Chia.

this is way to foody sweet for me gave me a headache. I kept looking for the rose but on me it never came out just smelling like candy I could see someone younger wearing this
