Every summer in the airport I spray myself with a random perfume which I usually end up regretting for the rest of the flight but this year I chose DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom and was surprised to find that I actually really liked it! So much so, in fact, that it went on my birthday list and was lucky enough to receive a bottle of the eau de parfum.
My initial decision to try this perfume was solely based on the nice little apple-shaped bottle that it came in which caught my eye. The bottom part is clear glass allowing you to see the delicate pink-colour of the fragrance within and the top half is the lid which is a shiny silver. The little DKNY sticker on the lid, which looks like the stickers you get on real apples, is a cute touch. The 30ml bottle I have has a lid which screws off revealing the spray pump underneath but the larger bottles just have a button on the lid. On my 30ml bottle, the lid is easy to twist off and the spray pump dispenses enough perfume so that only a single spray is needed on each wrist.
The fragrance is really gorgeous. It is fruity and floral whilst being light and subtle. I really like that it is light as it means it's appropriate for occasions as well as being wearable at work too so you have the freedom to wear it whenever you feel like rather than feeling like you should limit it's use to one particular purpose. According to DKNY, the top notes of the fragrance are citrus and apple blossom, with middle notes of rose and violet. The base notes are woodsy notes, orris roots and musk. I'm not a fragrance expert but I can tell that the fragrance does change as it is worn throughout the day and I really like how it smells both when recently applied and also how it smells later on in the day as it fades. I would consider the longevity of this perfume to be reasonably short however this is because it is a fresh light fragrance to start with. If you are after something which could make more of a statement then this may not be for you but I find it perfect for my needs.
A 30ml bottle of DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom costs £36.50 in Boots which is where mine came from. No doubt it can be found cheaper online but I am wary of fakes and would rather purchase from a shop. I would consider this good value as mine is lasting me well and it is such a lovely fragrance. I will happily purchase this in the future and I would recommend it to others.
I few years ago, my mum brought me Delicious which I quite liked and since then, I have been brought some different ones in the range, this being one of them.
The fragrance comes in three different sizes, 30ml which retails at around £35, 50ml which retails at around £48 and 100ml which retails at around £67. There are also creams, body lotions and shower gels in the same fragrance however these are a little harder to come across and I have only spotted these in larger department stores.
The design of the bottle is quite unique, shaped just like an apple, with the fragrance being a pale pink colour. The only downside for me is the spray as it is quite powerful, unlike some other fragrances I have used, it does come out as a fine mist, it 'squirts' out quite a lot, so much so that sometimes it looks like I have dribbled down my top!
According to Basenotes.com, the fragrance smells a follows:
Top Notes - Grapefruit, Cassis, Apricot
Middle Notes - Muguet, Rose, Jasmine
Base Notes - Blonde woods, Smooth skin accords
I would really describe this as a spring fragrance, upon first spray; the fruity elements come through, mixed with the warm jasmine. I would say that the fragrance is really quite sweet but the grapefruit balances this out perfectly so as it doesn't smell too sickly or artificial.
I now have 4 different fragrances from the range and I would say this one is most similar to that of the original, Delicious, apart from the fact that this one doesn't have the same staying power as the others, I find within a couple of hours, I can hardly detect that I am wearing any and have to re-apply and for that reason, I wouldn't really wear this in the evening and would class is more as a daytime fragrance. Although the staying power isn't great, I do find that the fragrance doesn't really develop over the day and although a lot fainter, it more or less smells that same at the end of the day as it did at the start.
Overall, despite my 'spraying issues', I love the design of the bottle and the fragrance is nice even though it isn't too strong, therefore I would recommend it and give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
I am a perfume addict! And this has became my new #1.
I have always been a fan of DKNY, but this perfume is definitely one of my top faves. It's such a elegant and feminine scent, and I fell in love with it as soon as I first smelt it.
I bought the fresh delights set which includes the perfume and the body lotion. It ranges from around £30 - £40, depending on where you are buying it from. The set I purchased comes in a beautiful pink love-heart shaped cardboard container. The lid is a gorgeous sparkly pink, with the perfume details on it and the rest of the box has somewhat of a metallic shine to it, so much so that I just realised you can see your face in it. The back of the box has some usual info on it about the product. Open it up and inside is the perfume and the lotion.
The perfume comes in a ball/apple-shaped container. The bottom half is glass, so you can see the pink perfume inside. Yes, everything's pink... And the top half is metal. Hidden at the top is a little button, which when pressed allows the gorgeous smell to come shooting out the side. It's really easy to dispense. The perfume container, I think, is slightly on the large side and slightly heavy. I don't know if i would call it portable. What I find really handy for that is the little travel perfume bottles you can get from boots, where its a tiny little bottle and you can put your favourite perfume in, and then secretly spray throughout the day! It also has a sticker on it with "DKNY be delicious cherry blossom" at the top, obviously meant to draw similarities with an actual apple, which I think is genius. What a cute little idea! The bottle also sits so cute on a shelf/dressing table. When people come into my room, they take it off my shelf and start going, "how cute!"
The scent is dainty and subtle. I would also say it's slightly musky, and has similarities to CKIN2U, which I reviewed before. When you first smell it, you immediately think rose and a hint of citrus. As it goes on during the day, I genuinely think it starts to smell like apples. It also has jasmine, muget, cassis and blonde woods. It's not a strong perfume, or an in your face perfume. I use it as my everyday perfume, i don't think it's eccentric enough to be a night out perfume. It's more of a soft, delicate and fresh daily scent. Although being a soft scent, it lingers for a good few hours, so I don't think there's any need to reapply. It's definitely not a statement perfume however, which I actually thought it would be like when I first bought it. I recently bought CK Shock for the second time, which I feel has more of a statement than this and which I use for nights out etc.
If you're going to buy this perfume, I would advise going for the set as I have also fallen in love with the DKNY cherry blossom body lotion that is included. The lotion shares the same scent as the perfume, but not as floral. It also leaves your skin feeling soft and cleansed, and if I have time, I rub it on before I leave in the morning and my skin still feels and smells amazing when I get home at night.
My mum has noticed how gorgeous this perfume is and she's starting using it also on a daily basis. For the amount of time we've both been using it, it's actually got a huge amount left, which i'm really pleased about. Because it's such as musky and feminine scent, I would say this perfume could suit anyone!
I recently received a 50 ml bottle of DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom as a present. I was really pleased to get it as I had actually had my eye on this perfume for quite a while!
This Fresh Blossom scent is part of the DKNY "Be Delicious" scent range which includes the well known green, red and golden delicious, as well as other fragrances (often limited edition) such as currently tart key lime and pink macaroon. Fresh Blossom has very similar packaging to the others, so is easily recognisable as DKNY. It comes in a round bottle which is supposed to be an apple shape. The bottom half is clear, allowing you to see the pale pink perfume inside and easily see how much is left. The top half is shiny silver metal with a large flat button to press to dispense the perfume. I like the simplicity of the bottle and the fact it fits very comfortably in the hand, with the button in an easy to reach place. However, I am not too keen on the name sticker. The silver top part of the bottle bears a small oval shaped pink sticker stating the perfume name. This looks like the stickers you find on apples. Personally I think this sticker looks horrible and makes the bottle look a bit cheap and nasty. I have a "thing" about stickers and hate them anyway so maybe most people wouldn't be bothered by this aspect of the packaging, but it grosses me out a little bit and I wish they hadn't added it!
The notes according to Basenotes.com are as follows:
Grapefruit, Cassis, Apricot
Muguet, Rose, Jasmine
Blonde woods, Smooth skin accords
My first impression of this scent is that it is soft and feminine. The grapefruit gives it a bit of sparkle but it is not overly citrussy and has a lovely clean floral smell. I don't think this scent develops into anything drastically different, so if you like it on first impressions, you will still like it a couple of hours later. The scent is light and not too overpowering or in your face, but it does linger for a good 5 or so hours on me so despite being a light scent, it is not so subtle that you feel like it has instantly faded away. I like to spray it on my wrists, neck and sometimes a bit in my hair.
This is a really lovely perfume which I don't think many people could really dislike. I have been wearing this nearly every day for the last couple of weeks since I got it and am still really enjoying the scent of it. However, if you want to make a statement with your fragrance you might find it a bit on the boring side. This is a very safe choice for a nice, clean, fresh, feminine fragrance. I think it is ideal for daytime, such as work or college and it is definitely appropriate for any occasion - not too over the top or too sexy. It doesn't have any musk or spice to it and feels fresh and casual to me.
In my opinion it is quite a young scent and I would definitely recommend it to older teen girls as well as women in their 20s and 30s.
I have always liked the DKNY Be Delicious perfumes and in the past have tried both the green and red versions but when my sister returned from her holidays with the pale pink fresh blossom variety I had to try it. When I tried it I realised that I really liked the fragrance and so asked my brother to buy me some as a gift this Christmas just past. This is my review of DKNY Be Delicious fresh blossom.
The DKNY Be Delicious fresh blossom that my brother bought for me was in a gift set along with a shower gel in the fragrance as well. It was packed in a white box with a pink line around it as well as the product name which I believe is pretty much how the fragrance comes packed if bought alone anyway.
Inside the box was a 30ml bottle of eau de parfum and what I just love about this range of perfumes is the fact that they are designed to look like apples as I just think it is really cute. The bottom of the bottle is a clear glass through which you can see the pale pink coloured perfume inside and then the top of the bottle is a shiny silver which acts almost like a mirror and which features a small sticker with the DKNY name and the product name as well much like those small stickers that you get on apples sometimes which I think is cute. The bottle appeals to me because it is simple but pretty too and it isn't too big or bulky so it would look nice on a dressing table but would fit equally well in a bag for a night out.
When you pull off the silver lid you expose the bulk of the glass bottle which has a silver spray on the top to dispense the fragrance. I find that just one or two sprays is plenty with this one as it comes out well and as it is an eau de parfum rather than eau de toilette it is quite strong anyway. The fragrance is strong to begin with and I can smell the fruitiness of it as well as the floral aspect as well. It smells summery, fun and playful in my opinion. The combination of fruit and flowers works really well in this case I think and provides an end result which is perfect in my opinion. I am totally rubbish at picking out individual notes but I have looked online on the perfume shop website to find them for those who are able to make sense of them!
Heart notes: Sheer muget and petally rose wrapped in a luminous jasmine
Top notes: Sparkling grapefruit, cassis and sun kissed apricot
Base notes: Blonde woods and smooth skin accords
I find that this fragrance settles nicely on to my skin but it is also evident throughout the day and I would not feel the need to reapply it unless I was going to be going out somewhere. The fragrance remains subtle but fresh as the day goes on and this is something I really like because so many fragrances these days have very little staying power at all. The scent it perfect for both day time wear and evenings out and I would say it works well through all the seasons too so it is very versatile.
Should you be interested in purchasing this fragrance I would advise that you can pick it up from amazon and cheap smells for £21.50 for a 30ml bottle which I think is excellent value really. The 50ml bottle can be bought for around £34 from cheap smells which again is a very good price in my opinion and I certainly recommend this fragrance.
Thank you for reading my review!
I love this perfume for a summer's day. It has a light and refreshing scent to it that stays around for hours.
It is a blossom scent and I believe it does smell like a blossom tree. It reminds me of a florist when I spray it on and I think I am surrounded by flowers throughout the rest of the day after I have sprayed it.
I think the scent lasts for about 5 hours before it becomes unnoticeable to you anymore but if you smell your wrist, you can still smell it.
I think it is a reasonable price for how long it lasts. I put two pumps on each day and it has lasted me for at least 6 months already and I still have enough left.
I recommend this perfume to anyone who wants a light and refreshing perfume for the summer or at any time really!
I recently decided that I was going to treat myself to some new perfume as i was running low. I chose this particular perfume because in the past I had a DKNY apple scented perfume and LOVED it. So I had always wanted to try out other scents of the DKNY range. I purchased the perfume from Boots, it retails at Boots for £32.00 for 30ml I personally believe it is quite expensive which is a huge disadvantage, however what isn't expensive these days!
Be Delicious Fresh blossom is one of four scents from the 'be delicious' range. The perfume comes in a sphere shaped glass bottle. You could say it is shaped like a apple. It has a Silver mirrored lid and the rest of the bottle is simply glass so that you can see the pale pink perfume. I really like the shape of the bottle as i believe its easy to handle (I often put it in my bag when i am out and about) and also it is quite pretty! The perfume is also very easy to apply as it has a spray applicator, the spray applicator has a dinted groove for your finger to comfortably sit in whilst you spray the perfume.
Be Delicious Fresh Blossom is said to 'celebrate the beauty of New York in spring time, with an innocent fresh and playful fragrance. Its as pretty and delicate as the first bloom of apple blossom in Central Park, a symbol of love, youth, beauty and happiness.'
When i first used the perfume i could certainly smell a sweet scent of apples, all of the perfumes in this range are apple based so that would explain the apple scent. It is a very strong scent at first, maybe a little to strong but this quickly fades into a gorgeous scent. I personally believe that this scent is very fruity and fresh! However I can't smell the 'blossom and spring' in this perfume but that may just be my nose!! The fruitiness of the perfume gives it that gorgeous summer feel!
I believe the perfume would be suitable for both during the day and also for the evening as it is also sophisticated scent. However there is a disadvantage to the perfume! Unfortunately it doesn't last long! Therefore you may have to take it out in your handbag with you if you want to stay smelling fruity. However this means you have to use more which sadly means more money and this particular perfume is not cheap!!
I do not think i would buy myself this perfume again due to it being quite expensive and not lasting very long, however i love the scent and hope to find another perfume which is similar!
Thank you for reading my review.
I got the DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom fragrance and the moisturiser duo from my friends for my birthday and it is one of my favourite fragrances of all time. While the smell is very fruity and sweet, I definitely don't think it's sickly (although it might become too sickly if too much is applied, but that's the case with everything). I have been using it since March and it looks quite full to me still, so I am still very impressed with the quality and how low the price is! However, the moisturiser was a bit of a disappointment. I found it to be too liquidy and while I understand it might have been intended as a light moisturiser, it often drips out of the tube onto the floor whenever I apply it. Again, the fragrance is lovely and feminine, but I tend to avoid the moisturiser.
Fresh Blossom is part of the DKNY Be Delicious range and is usually sold for about £21 for 30ml, £33 for 50 ml and £38 for 100ml. It is a fresh, fruity smell, ideal for the summer.
- Great fragrance for the summer, really light and fruity
- Excellent price for the quality of the product.
- Stays on for the whole of the day
- The moisturiser that comes with it is ridiculously liquidy and often drips out of the tube.
All in all, I definitely recommend the fragrance, particularly for the summer, but avoid paying for the moisturiser, if asked. It is not worth it as most of it ends up on the floor!
** DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Eau de Parfum **
In 1984 Donna Karan and her husband Stephan Weiss started the brand DKNY. Their goal is combine comfort and luxury. Beside an expensive clothing line they also have skin care products and perfumes.
DKNY Be Delicious Fresh blossom comes in a square white cardboard box with the brand name printed in gray. The content and type of perfume are mentioned and on the back you have the ingredients and contact information. In the box you have this elegant spherical bottle. The form is like a very round apple. The underside is made of transparent glass. Through the glass you can see the color of the perfume. The top consists of a silver half-sphere where the spray is incorporated. It all looks really nice and the spray is easy to use.
The perfume itself is light pink in color. The perfume itself is a blend of fruity and floral aromas and is sweet like the color. The playful scent is suitable for all ages.. The perfume contains grapefruit, apricot, roses and jasmine which really gives it a fresh sweet scent. It's definitely one of my favorites and I love wearing it at night.
After trying out a few perfumes in the shop we found this pink bottle that grabbed our attention. The frist smell I noticed was the grapefruit but then it became softer and more a sweet smell. It was really nice and I know I had it straightaway. I love the bottle of the perfume but it's sometimes a little bit unhandy to hold since it's round. The spray is easy enough to use but it feels like the bottle will slip out of your hand. The perfume will stay with your for like a good 4 hours and then it really becomes less and hardly noticeable anymore. So the perfume is great when you go out for the night. I got this one for 38 pounds and you get 50ml bottle. The perfume is worth it.
Being someone who doesn't like a perfume to be too overpowering DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom perfume is perfect and one of my favourites! It has a lovely subtle, fresh and pretty fragrance that doesn't make you feel sick and get headaches like some can do to me!!
It is a mixture of fruit and flowers including a blend of grapefruit, apple and apricot. Rose and Jasmine. Even though it is a subtle fragrance, not much is needed and it lasts a few hours.
The packaging is an eye catching apple shaped glass bottle, a silver lid with a lovely pink coloured perfume. It's downsides are the lid which can be a bit annoying to fit back on. It is also quite awkward to hold when spraying it on too.
Also the fragrance is quite pricey for a small amount which is why it is better to shop around for it. But it is definitely a lovely fragrance to add to your collection if you are looking for a sweet girly perfume that is not too overpowering!
DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom is a beautiful delicate fragrance. It is as attractive to look at as is the scent. It comes in a pretty apple shaped bottle, which is quite stubby yet dainty looking.
The bottom half of the bottle is glass and the top is a chrome coloured plastic. Through the bottom half you can see the pink purfume. The spray button is set into the silver top half, next to where the stalk of an apple would be, it's really cute.
It has a gorgeous scent, noticable yet delicate.
Top notes ~ Grapefruit, Cassis, Apricot.
Heart notes ~ Sheer Muget, Rose, Jasmine.
Base notes ~ Blonde Woods.
The top notes give the intial scent, these are what you smell immediatly, and help form your initial thoughts of a perfume. The top notes in this can be smelt immediatly and you are greeted with a fruity fresh aroma upon first spray. The heart notes come into play when the initial top notes fade, and they are there to mask the initial unpleasent scents of the base notes, the base notes are usually very strong scents alone but when combined in a perfume along with the top and heart notes you are left with a nice lingering fragrance.
This pretty fragrance I feel starts off fun and fruity but mellows and in the evening you are left with a pleasant femine scent.
I have the 50ml bottle which I had in a gift set along with the scented shower gel. It came in a pink and silver striped tub.
The smaller bottles have a removable lid and underneath this is the usual small spray button.
I would recommend that you shop around for this as it can be quite expensive. I can see that a 30ml bottle would cost you £20.96 from Amazon. There are a few discount perfume shops online, try some of those and you may find it a bit cheaper again.
This is a really nice fragrance that has a fresh aroma and is well suited for the summer. The item comes in a nice gift box and a stylish round container that sits neatly on myshelf and looks just that little bit different from your normal bottle.
DKNY has always been one of my favourite brands for a number of years now and often when clothing labels bring out their own fragrances it can be a case of not knowing which one to choose given that there are so many.
The DKNY range is one of the best as its not too expensive and has a softer more feminine edge to it compared to the armani's and calvin kleins which tend to be too strong in my opinion.
The "be delicious" has a more fruity and flowery smell that is suitable for everyday use as it is light and not too overpowering, yet provides a fresh smell to last the day.
As a fan of all the DKNY fragrances I have to say this is one of my favourites, it's up there with DKNY Pure.
It's summery without being sickly and I have always received compliments whilst wearing it.
As with all the Be Delicious range it's easy to wear and have found myself wearing it in the day and the evening.
A little goes a long way too, a long lasting, fresh, flowery summer scent that's a must buy. The price is good too.
Even the bottle is nice and looks good on my dressing table.
If you are stuck buying a present for your daughter, Mum or a friend, buy a bottle of DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom, and you can't go wrong.
I will certainly be buying another bottle shortly as my 5 year old daughter loves it and keeps dabbing it on, and because it's so fresh and light it suits her too.
Go on, treat yourself!
This is one of my favourite fragrances. It's so fresh and summery. I tried this out at a Debenhams store and just had to get it. It was quite expensive at the time but I was lucky enough to be able to get a smaller version at a Superdrugs store.
This fragrance isn't very long lasting but it does have average staying power. The smell itself does not seem to change much, if at all, during the hours that it has been put on.
From the look of the bottle, I was expecting a very fruit scent. But it smells to me more like sweet flowers and fresh meadows. It's the perfect summer scent.
If you are looking for something with greater lasting power, there are better fragrances out there.
But for me, this is perfect for summer as it is light and fresh and is not overpowering at all.
DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Eau de Parfum Spray is a radiant fragrance that marries freshness, vibrancy and femininity.
