Ohh, I'm so into Prada lately, their perfume that is.
They have this new series called Prada Candy, they are colorful, pretty and comes in 5 aroma. Prada Candy EDP, Prada Candy Florale (reviewed in this post), Prada Candy Kiss, Prada Candy Gloss, and Prada Candy Sugar Pop.
And I happen to have some heehee, for me even thou' they carry the same Prada Candy, they have different personalities one to another, and collectibles.
Let's discuss Florale, shall we?!
Prada’s latest fragrance evolved from the concept of an imaginary flower created especially for Candy. Of course, Candy cannot simply have any flower. Her fantasy flower must be unique, embodying her many facets: the fragrance’s light airiness puts the sparkle in her, followed by tender powdery notes that echo her Spring-like grace. A final whisper of warmth and honey reflects Candy’s rich sensuality.
Do opened their website and explore the world of Candy, a girl who goes on a quest to out of space to find that special flower.
Look at the box, it looks so girly right?! The flowery scent will definitely be something that girls love.
That flower is the white petals with black center we see on the soft pink box, it's the 'special' flower.
The container itself is fun and definitely gorgeous, need that black thingy to hold them together when carrying it during traveling. So I think, I will put it at home, I remember my last Valentina by Valentino that broke since I always carry everything inside my bag, so it's kinda like Doraemon.
The bottle would not be able to survive on certain level of weight. So do be careful.
As you can see from the image above, the stopper is on the top of the white cap. So it's pretty fragile if it's not securely put when inside a luggage.
The sprayer works just nice and sprayed an enough amount of perfume each use. It was pleasant, aromatic, lovely, beautiful, calming and fresh at the same time. I feel feminine using the Eau de Toilette, it was so good, somehow it reminds me of a jasmine tea, I don't know why, there's not even a jasmine here.
It was limoncello sorbet (top), flower of peony (heart), with benzoin, musk, caramel and honey (as a base).
What is benzoin?
Benzoin is a balsamic resin extracted from several types of stryax tree. It is often used in perfume not only for its smell but also as a fixative to increase stability and longevity. It is also widely used in the creation of incense.
Other details which I find on Sephora:
Candy declares her love for flowers. She takes on a new flirtatious game, where sensuality is pushed to the fullest. The delicately sweet smell of Candy meets a new, refined bouquet of sparkling cedrat and blooming cosmos that intermingle with her elegant softness. Candy is blossoming.
Sparkling Cedrat, Bouquet Of Cosmos, Benzoin, Caramel, White Musk.
So there you go, perhaps it was a cedrat (citrus) and bouquet of cosmos which got me interested with the perfume. And the interest become even more after it settles to the middle and base note. They all smells so good and amazing, like there's no loop hole of something that will put me off. From the top to bottom is all pleasantly wonderful and stays true to it's feminine and chic components.
Since it was EDT they'll last for 3 hours max, but I love how it settles on me as it was so sublimely gorgeous even more than those mere hours.
Easily spray it on again to freshen up. Love, love, love.
