Fun, playful and seductive, this fragrance from Prada is perfect for those of us with a sweet tooth. Appropriately named “Candy,” the scent comprises musks, vanilla, benzoin and caramel.
Availability: Department stores nationwide.
What we say:
When I first saw the advertising campaigns for this fragrance, I didn’t expect to like it. In general I like floral and fresh scents, and I avoid anything overly sweet or spicy. The name “Candy” insinuates something sickly sweet (my thoughts immediately go to candy floss) which doesn’t usually appeal to me, but despite my reservations I decided to give it a try.
I am happy to say that I was completely wrong about this fragrance. Is it sweet? Yes. But not the kind of sweet I expected. It is feminine and flirty with definite hints of caramel, but these are beautifully balanced out by soft musks and vanilla. Furthermore, the bottle is absolutely stunning. I love the bright pink and gold colouring and I can’t get enough of this eye-catching dome on my dressing table. I wouldn’t say the scent is my usual everyday scent, but it’s perfect for a night on the town or dinner with the girls. This fragrance has taught me not to judge a scent by it’s name or ad campaign!
