So spring is here, I decided to take a detour from my favourite perfume over the autumn season (I blogged about it here). The detour I decided to take was trying out the Prada Candy Florale EDT. Now I am not usually a fan of sweet fragrances, I did not get along with the original Prada Candy as I found it to be sickly, overbearing and juvenile.
However I believe the Prada Candy Florale EDT strikes the balance between sweet, floral and fresh in an amazing way. It literally has been my favourite fragrance throughout spring, sweet enough that it alludes to a hint of femininity, but not too sweet that it becomes sickly. I tend to wear this during the day and sometimes at night after a shower it definitely is a fresh and clean scent.
The official notes for this are described as being peony, limoncello,caramel, honey and musk. This makes sense to me as I get a hit of sharp freshness presumably from the lemons alongside the sweetness of the caramel and honey.
If you tend to shy away from sweet fragrances but want to try something different this is something I would recommend. What are your current fragrance faves?
