DKNY Delicious Night Eau de Parfum
Advantages: lovely scent, design of bottle, price on offer
Disadvantages: strength and staying power
DKNY (Donna Karan New York) offer a range of fragrances. The 'Delicious' fragrances are influenced by New York (or its nickname 'The Big Apple').
'Delicious Night captures the magic of a dark city'
Delicious Night is marketed as being the 'evening' fragrance in the Delicious collection. It is available in an eau de parfum with no matching body products available to layer the scent. Delicious Night is influenced by New York at night time.
Delicious Night follows the same bottle design as the other Delicious fragrances. The bottle is shaped like an apple and is chunky and round. The base of the bottle is tinted purple and complete with a slanted purple lid with a push in sprayer. The bottle definitely appeals to be me and I can tell this is aimed at being an evening scent.
Delicious Night has been created using different fragrance combinations.
*Top notes offer the initial scent - blackberry, ginger and pomelo
*Heart notes create the main body of the scent - jasmine, iris and orchid
*Base notes round off the scent - vetiver, amber and patchouli

I am a big fan of the DKNY Delicious fragrances as I love the apple shaped bottles! I loved the red and green scents so was pleased to use the Delicious Night. I do have specific fragrances set aside for various occasions and have a few evening scents in my collection. Delicious Night fits the evening theme perfectly in design and scent and I feel the price it is offered at is fair.
The bottle itself is very easy to use and a quick press down releases a generous amount of perfume onto my wrist and neck. I always feel special wearing this scent and it gives me a real confidence boost. From the moment I apply Delicious Night, the scent is favourable but there is not a single hint of apple like the other Delicious fragrances - it is more grown up and quite a sexy night time scent.
Delicious Night is highly fragranced on the skin at first and is quite sharp and heady. It settles within a few minutes and the individual fragrance notes can be picked out. They form a gorgeous blend on the skin which works so well yet they still keep their individual character which I appreciate. The blackberry addition allows the top notes to be deliciously sweet whilst the pomelo adds a faint zingy undertone to the scent - the perfect fruity combo. The ginger laces the scent adding spicy hints here and there. The opening of Delicious Night is rich and flavoursome and noticeable for an hour or so.
As the sweet and fruity top note composition starts to fade, Delicious Night takes a floral twist. I'm not crazy on heavy florals so I appreciated the delicate floral bouquet on offer from the orchid and iris. Jasmine is a favourite of mine and I found this added the 'evening' touch to the scent by giving a sensual feel to the scent. As the heart notes fumbled about on my skin for 4 hours or so, I could detect a faint spiciness if I sniffed up close to my skin.
As the sensual floral heart whispers away from my skin, the strength of the overall scent starts to lack a little. The base composition isn't as enthusiastic in strength as the rest of the scent and sits very close to the skin. I can appreciate a warm amber trace with a powdery patchouli addition. There is an element of faint woodiness but it isn't as deep and rich as it could have been. The scent was gone from my skin after 7 hours of wear.
Delicious Night would suit a female of any age and is a pleasant scent to wear to a romantic dinner. It wouldn't last long enough to go for dinner and on a bender afterwards though in my opinion as the scent isn't all that strong after a few hours and I often felt the need to top it up. It doesn't last as well as other eau de parfums but does last longer than an eau de toilette.
Overall I can recommend Delicious Night if you can buy it cheap. It is a lovely fragrance which makes me feel good when wearing it. I do prefer the apple inspired Delicious scents to this one but this is something different and I would buy it again.
Recommended - thanks for reading :)
