I have always been a fan of the DKNY delicious range, loving the fruity scents of green and red apples, not favouring the floral blosom scent but then I read about the candy apples range of three new fragrances. Juicy berry was the last one I bought from the range, previously loving the other scents. Juicy berry smells like blackberries and has the fruitiness of the 'delicious' range yet it is very much removed from the apple scent.
The bottle is very much Luke the classic design resembling a purple apple, with the glass bottom half, purple coloured liquid and purple plastic lid. The only difference is that it has a silver plastic stick comin out of the top like an upside down candy apple. The lid easily cones off to reveal the classic silver spray pump.
I love the unique twist this range has, a fruity and sweet scent. It's not my favourite scent from this new collection but it is definitely worth the £35 each 100ml
I asked for this perfume for my birthday this year. I was seduced by its adorable packaging and lovely scent. However I have mostly been disappointed.
The DKNY apples range has been around for years. It started with the green Delicious apple perfume and since then has branched out into a red apple scent, a pink blossom scent, male scents and most recently the Candy Apples range.
All of the perfumes come in apple shaped bottles, and the Candy Apple range have a lolly style stick sticking into the top of them to make them look more like the sort of candy apples you would buy from fairs and carnivals. The packaging really is cute and looks very sweet on your dressing table. This juicy berry one is a lovely bright purple colour and it always cheers me up to see it.
The smell of the perfume is lovely. It smells like sweet, sugary blackberries and raspberries and has a very fresh, fruity smell that is quite girly and young.
However the longevity of the scent is extremely disappointing. After only a few minutes the smell has decreased considerably and after a couple of hours you are lucky if you can smell it at all. This isn't a cheap perfume so I really think it should have a lot more staying power. I put three squirts of it on at a time - one on my wrists and two on my neck - but the smell still fades quickly.
The perfume is quite pricey and will set you back around £35 for 30ml, though of course that depends entirely on where you buy it from. It is available in most places, from Boots to Duty Free.
As much as I love the smell, though, I don't think I will be asking for or buying this perfume again.
