Prada Candy

Oh how I love thee, let me count the ways…
I was recently lucky enough to get the Prada Candy gift set as a present from my husband.  I have been wanting it since it first hit the stores (what few stores it is currently in) but I would never shell out the money for it.  This fragrance gained a lot of attention straight away and because it isn’t carried in any of my local department stores yet I was dying to give it a try.  A friend of mine sent me a sample of it in a gift package and when I smelled it I knew that we were destined for each other.  I guess all it took was for my husband to smell it on me for him to feel the same way. ;)
Info from the brand:
“Prada Candy, the new feminine fragrance of Prada enriches the Prada brand’s fragrance universe with another vision: colorful, pop and explosive.
Prada Candy incarnates the new Prada woman: she’s daring, sensual, full of life and implosive.
The perfume is named after this seductive and joyful girl who is running wild.
Top:
Seductive notes: Joyful and Carefree—Explosion of caramel
Middle:
Powdery notes: Sophistication—Cocktail of musks
Base:
Vanilla notes: Sensuality—Benjoin overdose”

I am so glad that you can look up the scent description because I have a hard time describing what I am sniffing.  All I could say about this is sweet and sensual.  It makes me just want to cuddle up with the one I love!  The notes are similar to Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille and even Aquolina Pink Sugar but it still has an uniqueness all it’s own.  It is lighter than Serge Lutens and more grown up than Pink Sugar.  

It does need to be noted that this scent will last all day long.  I can spray it on in the morning and I can still smell it on me and my clothes when I am getting home from work.  It is an Eau de Parfum so it is more concentrated than a Eau de Toilette.  


Every last detail of the bottle screams high end.  The spritzer, though modern, mimics something that you would have seen on fancy perfume bottles of the previous decades.  

The gift set came in this beautiful box.  I love the girl on it and everything she represents.
I adore this fragrance.  I haven’t been this excited since MAC decided to re-release Turquatic.  LOL  Thanks for reading and as always if you have anything to say or ask please do in the comments below.  

xoxo,
