DKNY Be Delicious. Hands up who has never heard of it? Everyone’s heard of it right? Now, hands up who has never smelt it? *raises hands sheepishly*
DKNY Be Delicious has been around so long and in so many incarnations, but I’d never really gone and taken a sniff until recently. And Oh.Em.Gee! Its lovely!
I love apples and apple pie, apple crumble, apple cobblers… apple anything… because I love the smell of apples. Even better if there is a hint of cinnamon or nutmeg to add a touch of spice. mmmm….. I have one caveat. I’m not an Apple fangirl … because it doesn’t smell of apples HAHA! :P
So quite naturally, a fragrance that smells of apples will appeal to me. (psst! If you like apples, like I do, I’ve got a bonus recipe below for one of the easiest Puff Pastry Apple Tarts ever! :D )
So Be Delicious smells of apples. The bottle is pretty much a dead give away. Its a lovely sweet green apple scent with a touch of citrus that transports me to a sunny orchard where I sit in a hammock crunching away on a Granny Smith, and shooing away mosquitoes :P
But do you want to smell like an apple? Well, you don’t end up really smelling like an apple nor an apple pie. This is a sweet but crisp and fresh fragrance that is young and good for the day. I wouldn’t wear it for night personally. I prefer something heavier and more musky for the night. It also makes a great first perfume for a young girl.
And for the day, its quite lovely. Plus the bottle that is shaped like an apple is cute. The shiny cap is quite lovely but as you can see, is a beyotch to photograph.
Now, let me show you these 2 adorable miniature bottles of Be Delicious I was gifted with, and which I happened to see for sale overseas. The DKNY Be Delicious EDP (green) and the Be Delicious Fresh Blossom (pink). Now aren’t THESE adorable? :)
And here’s a gratuitous picture of an apple tart because I can :)
