So this weekend saw me undertake one of my favourite chores – picking apples from our little orchard at the bottom of the garden, so I thought it would be the perfect excuse to try out one of my newest Eau de Parfums – DKNY’s Be Desired. I’ve been a big fan of DKNY’s Be Delicious scents for years – I bought the first one when I was away on a school trip many moons ago, and I think I’ve kept a bottle handy ever since!
DKNY’s Be Desired scent comes packaged in one of the brand’s signature apple shaped bottles, and it is such a pretty fragrance to wear! When first applied, the top notes are a sparkling mix of fruity notes – blackcurrant, iced grapefruit and orange which feel so fresh and flirty. As the scent warms up, the heart notes of rose and jasmine become stronger, giving the scent a wonderful grownup, floral edge. It’s these beautiful, almost soapy notes which cut through the sharpness of the fruit and create a scent which feels really unusual. The base notes include amber and cedar wood which give the fragrance a beautiful warmth, and longevity which most other fruity fragrances lack. It’s a such a beautifully balanced fragrance, you really must check it out!
