I got this fragrance as part of a duo pack which also included the DKNY Be Delicious Red. The two fragrances came in separate boxes, which were packed together and each bottle was a fairly small 30 ml. I paid £30 for the pack, which even accounting for the small bottles, I thought was good value. It is not often that you get a bottle of perfume for £15, especially one that is by a designer.
The fragrance comes in a round bottle which is shaped presumably to look like an apple, as is the same with all of the fragrances in the Be Delicious range. It has a silver top with a button on that you press down on to squirt the perfume out. The bottle is nice enough and a little bit unique, but it is not a show stopper that you'll want to have displayed on your dressing table. The button can also be quite hard to press down and I tend to find that I have to use two hands to do so, which is a bit of a pain when you are trying to spray it on your wrists!
Be Delicious has top notes of American Apple, crisp Green Cucumber and sparkling Grapefruit. The middle notes are Magnolia, Tuberose, White Muguet, Rose and Violet. And the base notes are Sandalwood and White Amber. I was surprised to read about so many flowery notes running throughout the fragrance actually because the overwhelming thing that I get from it is apples and not much else. It sort of smells like those rosy apple boiled sweets that you used to get from your local sweet shop. It is indeed very fruity and I really don't get much else from it to be honest.
I think it smells a bit too immature for me really and would be much better suited to a teenager or someone in their early to mid twenties at the most. I would also say that it is a summery fragrance rather than a winter or all year round one because it does put you in mind of fruit salads on warm days.
The staying power of the fragrance seems to be quite good, but maybe that is because I am not all that fond of it so it lingers quite a bit! It is very strong. Overall I would say that it is a good value fragrance, but just not one that I like particularly.
Juicy as a fresh and sour bite of an apple, DKNY Be Delicious Eau so Intense captures apple extracts wrapped up in green and moist freshness of grapefruit and magnolia. The heart is a floral bouquet of violet, rose, tuberose and lily of the valley, complemented by the base of fine sandalwood, white amber and blonde woods.
