Readers of my blog will know I’m incredibly keen on fragrances, I have a mini obsession as I often find myself checking out the latest releases and pulling sample sticks out of my coat pocket when I get home. One of the most recent fragrances to cross my path has been DKNY Be Delicious which in 2012 was released again in New York limited edition theme; along with this a London and Paris version were also produced. Donna Karen, the founder of DKNY has produced a collection of fragrances which help portray the femininity romance and energy all found within the big city.
DKNY Be Delicious* to me is quite a light and fresh fragrance that was re-released in limited edition packaging to celebrate the buzzing energy of New York City. The city that never sleeps is beautifully portrayed across the top of the packaging in a black outline, can you spot the Statue of Liberty?
As I’ve mentioned, this is a wonderfully light fragrance with really refreshing scents that you immediately catch on to; the smell of cucumber and green apple are invigorating at first instance which I really quite like. I find that after a few minutes on my skin the scent warms up a little bit where I can definitely detect the wood notes coming through, this for me takes away the light scent of the fragrance and makes it more like the typical type of scent I would usually go for.
For me this fragrance has a bit of everything, light and fresh along with warm and woody; I really hope that makes sense as I think it is really quite lovely. I wouldn’t say it is the most long lasting fragrance I have tried however, I never really find many that do last that long really so this is nothing out of the ordinary. After trying this version I would love to try the I ❤ London version which is a take on the Fresh Blossom fragrance which has notes of jasmine and apricot present; it sounds wonderful.
