Advantages: Smell. lasting power, quality, design of bottle
I've had this perfume for quite a while now - around a year and a half and I love it! I've nearly used it all up and I will definitely be re-purchasing another bottle once I have. I'm trying to make it last for as long as possible as this is quite a pricy perfume and I can't really justify buying another bottle when I already have a ginormous perfume collection but it is definitely worth every penny.
I usually wear this when I'm going somewhere that is quite a casual event but I still want to make an effort, say a family meal or to the cinemas or something like that, as it's a casual and versatile fragrance but it stills smells special and expensive if that makes sense! Basically it's not over the top and while it's nice and fresh and light it has a subtle warmth which makes it ideal for any season. I have the 100ml bottle of this which retails at around £65.00 so like I said before it's not cheap!
Don't let the price put you off though, it is well worth the money and you can tell that it's an expensive perfume because of the high quality, delicious scent and it is very long lasting too even though only a few squirts is needed with each application. Smaller sized bottles are available - 30ml and 50ml and this perfume can be purchased from a huge range of shops - supermarkets, depertment stores, perfume shops and so on and it can be found at a slightly discounted price on sites such as Amazon.
The first thing that attracted me to this perfume was the apple shaped bottle, and after seeing the advert for it ages ago, I set off in search of it as I thought that the bottle was really unique. After sniffing this I fell in love and didn't mind forking out for it. I remember this been even more expensive than it is now when I bought it but I would rather buy one really good quality perfume once in a while rather than buying lots of cheap perfumes. This is a really luxurious and it's easily in the same league as my Chanel, Marc Jabobs and Thierry Mugler perfumes.
The perfume bottle is unique and although when I describe it it might sound a little childish (as it's an apple shape!) it is actually a really cool and elegant design. Pictures and descriptions don't do it justice. It's basically a round glass bottle which is very solid and sturdy without being bulky. Half of the bottle is tinted green which obviously reflects the apple fragrance while the other half is silver and very shiny. The silver part has got the DKNY logo on it and the perfume is released by pressing down on a little triangular button which is kinda cool!
The manufacturers describe this as a refreshing, juicy fragrance. They state that it combines the scent of apple with a blend of exotic flowers and sensual woods. The top notes are apple, cucumber and grapefruit while the middle notes are magnolia, tuberose, rose, violet and white muguet. The base consists of sandalwood and white amber. I was expecting this to be very floral, however it's really fruity with apple being the most prominent smell. It smells like natural apple rather than an artificial smell and it has a nice hint of floral which balances it out nicely and stops it from smelling too sweet. Although it's a very delicious, mouth waterring fruity kind of scent it's not too girly in my opinion and the woody notes give it a nice twist. The fragrance is fresh and uplifting and I feel like a million dollars when I'm wearing it!
Even though it is a fresh fragrance I would not class this as a summer scent as it has gorgeous, comforting warm tones which reminds me of a glass of warm apple juice and cinnamon. I personally find it hard to detect the amber in this and the notes that stand out to me are apple and cucumber which smells so much better than it sounds!! I usually squirt this on both wrists and my neck and the fragrance lingers on my skin all day and it is still detectable even when I've had my bath and am in my pj's! It's incredibly long lasting and in the year and a half that I've had it I've had countless compliments on the smell.
Overall, I can not recommend this enough.
