Hi Guys!

Yes DKNY are back again with another new addition to their Be Delicious range for Autumn 2016! This time it’s a striking intense red bottle, containing a wonderfully bold and sexy fragrance – Be Tempted..

Capturing the lights of the city in the night sky and the glow from within, the seduction of the Big Apple draws you in closer than ever. This story of seduction is revisited with a new apple that is redder, shinier, and sexier. DKNY Be Tempted captures an exciting feeling in a new Gourmand Oriental rooted in the lusciousness of fruits for an addictive scent that expresses a sensorial seduction.

Be Tempted is everything you’d expect and more from the Be Delicious range, it’s overtly feminine, mouth-wateringly fruity and enticing and yet universal enough to be worn both day and night.

Be Tempted opens up with juicy top notes of Black Currant Bud, Red Fruit Accord and zesty Lemon, with intoxicating notes of Wine Sap Apple Accord and Devil Liquorice Accord. Leading to a heart of luxurious Rose Oil Essential that merges with the distinctive allure of Violet and rich, sensual Orange Flower. The base is warm and exotic, with Patchouli Oil Indonesia blending with creamy Vanilla and Myhrr.

  • Top Notes: Black Currant Bud, Devil Liquorice Accord, Red Fruit Accord and Lemon.
  • Heart Notes: Rose Oil Essential, Violet and Orange Flower.
  • Base Notes: Patchouli Oil Indonesia, Vanilla, and Myhrr.

So is it worth it? The answer is definitely a yes – it’s a gorgeous and affordable fragrance, and if you’re a fan of the Be Delicious collection it’s without question a must-buy!

DKNY Be Tempted is priced from £37.00 for 30ml, and it will be available Nationwide from 17th August.

Hi Guys!

DKNY are back on the blog today with two of the tallest perfumes I’ve ever seen! 🙂

These are the brand new and limited edition Original Summer fragrances, for him and for her. And as expected from DKNY, both are fantastic, easily wearable summer scents – I love how DKNY continually come up with gorgeously wearable and not to mention affordable perfumes, time and time again…

DKNY-Limited-Edition-Original-Summer-Fragrances-review

So as ever with DKNY, the idea is it’s summer in New York City, and the heat is on! Think of the beautiful NYC skyline, and neon, saturated hues which are reflected in the bold DKNY logos used on the fragrance bottles. A heady intoxication is in the air and passion and optimism is on the horizon.

Intoxicated by the promise of all that is possible, DKNY lovers return to the fast pace of the concrete jungle for the sleekest new experience to rush the senses.

DKNY Original Women Summer Limited Edition – this is a bright and sparkling floral fruity fragrance, to me this scent takes me back to my early twenties, it’s a hot balmy night out in the city with the girls, cocktails and dancing, this fragrance is fun and youthful yet sensuous. Original Women Summer has juicy top notes of Goji Berry, Citrus Sorbet, and Peach Bellini, floral heart notes of Pink Water Lily, Violet, and Wet Rose, and base notes of Cashmere Woods, Musk and White Amber.

DKNY Original Men Summer Limited Edition – this is an exhilarating and woody yet refreshing scent. Original Men Summer has top notes of fresh Green Pineapple, Citrus cocktail of Bergamot and Lemon Italy, and Aquatic Solar Notes, heart notes of Green Violet, Cedarwood Virginia, and Vetiver Heart, and base notes of Modern Amber, Musk, and White Patchouli.

The Limited Edition DKNY Be Electric Fragrance Collection

Posted on February 8, 2016

Limited-Edition-DKNY-Be-Electric-Fragrance-review

Hi Guys!

Happy Monday! Today I have a gorgeous collection of limited edition fragrances to share with you…

DKNY will shortly be releasing three limited edition flankers – the Be Electric collection, as the latest additions to their world renowned Be Delicious range. Inspired by the pulsating lights of the city that never sleeps – New York, the Be Electric trio are presented in brighter than bright, neon bottles, in the recognised apple shape of Be Delicious fragrances.

I knew I had to try these fragrances as soon as I saw them – apart from loving the last Be Delicious fragrance, Be Desired, I’m also a total sucker for neon colours, and these, though probably not to everyone’s taste, are bright, bold, and right up my street!

The Be Electric fragrances can all be described as sparkling, juicy and fruity, whilst being oh so wearable. The theme here is the energy of the bustling city and the optimism of exciting new beginnings, and I think the packaging as well as the fragrances sum this up really well.

So let’s take a look at the scents –

The Pink one  Loving Glow: This was the first fragrance I tried out of the three, and I instantly fell in love. Loving Glow has fruity top notes of juicy blackcurrant, tart grape and pineapple. Jasmine and purple violet blend with apricot for the heart, and vanilla, right amber wood and sensuous musk are at the base, giving this scent a depth of allure.

The Green one – Bright Crush: Keeping with the fresh and fruity theme, Bright Crush has sparkling top notes of bergamot and blackcurrant, sweet plum is enveloped at the heart by pretty florals of frangipani and peony, and base notes of golden amber, vanillia and creamy woods add warmth and femininity.

The Orange one – Citrus Pulse: With a nod to the freshness of oranges, without the sharpness, Citrus Pulse opens with a blend of nectarine, mandarin and passion fruit. A floral current also runs through the fragrance with notes of jasmine absolute, plumeria blossom and honeyed magnolia at the heart. Benzoin, warm musk and sandalwood are blended at the base to give a rich and creamy sweetness.

Just because the packaging is bold and neon, I think I expected these fragrances to be a lot sharper than they are – but they’re not actually sharp at all, they’re all very sweet, very feminine and like I originally said, surprisingly easy to wear. I really can’t decide which I love the most! If you’re on the hunt for a new spring fragrance I highly recommend you check these out!

The DKNY Be Electric Collection will have an RRP of £37 for each 50ml bottle, and they will be available nationwide from March 2016.

New From DKNY: Be Desired EDP

Posted on October 2, 2015

dkny-be-desired

Hi Guys!

I was so excited to be invited along to the launch of DKNY’s latest fragrance, Be Desired last week. I don’t want to go too much into the party details, but it was held in a beautiful rooftop garden, with the new fragrance dotted throughout the space so everyone could try it out – oh and they had real flamingos too, which I was amazed by. It wasn’t exactly your bog standard party…

dkny-be-desired-fragrance

Anyway, Be Desired is the latest addition to DKNY’s ‘Be Delicious’ range of fragrances – which I can’t believe launched over ten years ago now!

Be Desired includes top notes of orange, blackcurrant, violet leaf and iced grapefruit, heart notes of acacia flower, cassis absolute, Asian jasmine and Turkish rose, and base notes of Cedar, cashmere and amber wood. On initial spritz the fragrance is quite green – and a bit sharp (or so I originally thought) I was on the fence at first, but within moments it settles down to a beautiful fruity yet floral scent, definitely reminiscent of the original Be Delicious fragrance, but with a modern twist.

I’ve worn it a few times since the event and I actually love this fragrance now! It’s such an uplifting, fresh fragrance, it’s perfect for every day wear.

Be Desired features a new floral element, the lush and creamy sensual tones are infused with a green floral direction. The scent instantly draws you in with a sparkle of orange oil combined with tart blackcurrant and dewy violet leaves. Iced grapefruit teases the senses with a vivacious energy. Exotic elements bring a succulent texture to the bouquet of jasmine samba and turkish rose. Precious woody notes of cedarwood and vibrant amber wood create an unforgettable essence of the new fragrance.

DKNY Be Desired is £69 for 100ml, £50 for 50ml and £37 for 30ml. It will be available nationwide from 14th October 2015.
