DKNY Be Delicious Women Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Delicious light, fruity scent, nice bottle, reasonably priced
Disadvantages: Disappointing to find the bottle is half the size you thought it was
DKNY Be Delicious is a crisp and fresh perfume by Donna Karan New York. It is the first fragrance my fiancé ever bought me as a surprise among my Christmas gifts several years ago.
My DKNY Be Delicious is a 30ml bottle of the eau de parfum spray. I really love this perfume.

~ Bottle ~
The bottle is almost spherical, representative of an apple. The bottom half of the bottle is transparent lime green coloured glass. The top half of the bottle is silver and on my bottle this is the lid of the bottle. The whole silver upper half of the bottle can be removed to reveal the spray button and the lime green lower half of the perfume bottle. This is quite disappointing as your bottle is suddenly a lot smaller than you previously thought, initially having been under the illusion that the perfume occupied more than just half of the bottle.
There is an oval sticker on the silver lid which is representative of an apple sticker. It has 'DKNY Be Delicious' on it then underneath in smaller print '100% Pure New York'. I think the apple sticker is a nice, fun touch to the bottle.
I think the bottle is nice and it adds something different to my dressing table's large collection. I don't think the bottle would be worth having without the lid though as it looks unidentifiable as DKNY Be Delicious and appears quite cheap as just half a bottle.
~ Scent ~
The scent is refreshing, fruity and really light.
It offers top notes of violet leaf, apple, grapefruit and magnolia, heart notes of tuberose, lily of the valley, rose and violet and base notes of sandalwood, amber and musk.
It smells as green as it looks and the crisp, fresh apple scent dominates this fragrance. It is surprisingly strong, but by no means overpowering. I always expect this perfume to be more subtle, knowing it to be light, fresh and fruity.
It is quite a youthful perfume. I could imagine a teenager wearing this fragrance, although I am in my mid-twenties and it is one I know to be popular among my friends of the same age. I also think an older, more mature woman could easily get away with this scent. I can't imagine that anyone would be offended by this scent.
I think it is more of a casual, every day scent rather than one for special occasions. I have found it to have good staying power as well.
~ Overall ~
Overall I think this is a nice, light, fresh, fruity fragrance and I would consider repurchasing if my bottle were to run out. I think the bottle is quite cute and adds something different to my dressing table. I think it is a perfume that will appeal more to younger girls and is perfect for every day wear, but would recommend it to anyone who the description appeals to.
