I have recently decided to start collecting DKNY's Delicious range of fragrances.
The original fragrance, Be Delicious was released in 2004 and there have been more than 30 different releases since then, in similarly designed bottles.
~ Price and availability ~
I recently bought DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Juiced, which was released back in spring 2011.
It is available in 30ml and 50ml bottles.
The 30ml bottle is available on cheapsmells.com for £28.95 (RRP £35.00).
The 50ml bottle, which I bought, is available on www.strawberry NET.com, which is an American website, where I paid £47.00 for it. I also bought DKNY Be Delicious Juiced (the green one), which was released alongside this fragrance.
~ Bottle ~
The bottle is similarly designed to all of the other bottles in the DKNY Delicious range.
It is rounded, but not spherical. The bottle sits quite low.
The bottom of the bottle is made from clear glass, but the top of the bottle is made from pink plastic.
It has a triangular spray release button, which is on the top of the bottle and also made from pink plastic. The spray comes from a hole in the front of the pink plastic top.
A white and pink oval shaped apple sticker is stuck to the side of the plastic with, 'DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Juiced' written on it.
The fragrance itself is a light pink colour.
I think the bottle is nice. It is quite brightly coloured, but I don't think it looks too tacky or over the top.
~ Scent ~
The fragrance has a light, fresh fruity-floral scent.
The top notes are pink grapefruit, blackcurrant, freesia and passion flower.
The heart notes are apple blossom, lily, rose and sweet pea.
The base notes are rosewood, vetiver and white musk.
It is very feminine and floral, but the floral notes are not overpowering or harsh. The fruity and floral notes complement each other well.
It is very light and laid back, but the pink grapefruit is quite bold and bright in this fragrance. I can also detect the blackcurrant and the freesia in this fragrance.
Together the floral notes are quite strong, but they are fresh and delicate and not sharp at all.
I have been impressed with the staying power of this fragrance, especially as it is an eau de toilette. I have found many of the fragrances in the DKNY range, most of them eau de parfums, have had quite average staying power of around 5 hours, but this fragrance is still evident on my skin after 8 hours.
I have also found that with the Be Delicious Juiced fragrance from the same range as this one, which is also an eau de toilette. I have found this quite surprising.
I would say this fragrance is aimed at younger women judging by the bottle design. I also think the scent would appeal more to younger women.
~ Conclusion ~
I really like this scent. It is not one of my favourites and I prefer the other fragrance in the range, Be Delicious Juiced (the green one), but this has a lovely scent.
I have been impressed with how long it lasts on my skin. I also quite like the bottle design.
I think it is quite pricey at £47.00 for 50ml, but I am pleased I bought it.
I'm not sure if I would buy it again if my bottle was to run out. It is nice, but it doesn't have the wow factor that Be Delicious Juiced has.
