Prada Candy Florale Perfume | Review ♥

Hey beaut's!

With Summer on the way it's definitely time to refresh your perfume caddie, out with the deep, woody scents and in with the more fresh, floral scents and today I have one very amazing scent to share with you that's perfect for the warmer months ahead... Say hello to Prada Candy Florale*!
Prada Candy Florale is the third instalment in the Candy range,  firstly they launched Candy in 2011, which is said to have been an instant hit with it's super sweet, youthful and flirty scent. Then in 2013, the Italian-line followed it up with Candy L’Eau, which is described to be a less sweet, more musky offering. Then this year on April 8th Prada presented us with their third Candy perfume, named Candy Florale, which is the ultimate spring/summer scent.

Prada Candy Florale is inspired by an imaginary flower that smells like candy or a bouquet of flowers standing on the counter of an ice cream shop in Italy, so basically think of a light peony floral scent with a touch of sweetness and that your scent right there. The fragrance is all about pretty flower Peony, but has a top note of yummy Limoncello, making it sparkling fresh. At the heart of the fragrance is a majestic bouquet of fresh peonies, with the base of musk, benzoin and caramel, mmm it's such a fresh, floral scent with that hint of sweetness!

I have to admit I think Prada Candy Florale is one of the nicest perfumes I have EVER tried, just because everything about it is just spot on for me. When you first spritz Candy Florale you aren't met with a strong overpowering scent that needs time to dry down, instead you are met with a gorgeous, light scent that sits on the skin (or your clothes, as I go mad and spritz all over sometimes ha ha) exactly how it comes out of the bottle, and I really like that about a perfume. The lasting power of Candy Florale is amazing, I do about 3 spritz' (wrists, neck and or course one more for luck on my clothes ha ha) and I can honestly smell the perfume on me all day, and even when I get into bed that evening I can still smell it, it's also very much a complimentary perfume where alot of people can smell it on me and they seem to love it and ask what I'm wearing, which again is always nice. It's also a scent that I would describe as an all rounder, so it's not to young nore too mature and would be suitable for day and nighttime wear.
And then there is the packaging and the bottle... I mean it just looks stunning doesn't it! The bottle and box are the standard signature design for Prada, but this time around the box is coloured a soft, dusky shade of pink and decorated with flower motifs. The bottle is just as beautiful as the box, it has a heavy, pink toned glass design, with Prada gold lettering at the top and comes complete with a unique, rounded dispenser. It's definetly one luxurious looking perfume!

Overall I absolutely love every single little thing about this perfume and I personally couldn't fault it at all, it's perfect for Spring/Summer wear, it's not strong or overpowering, it wears beautifully and doesn't need drying down time, the bottle looks beautiful, luxurious and very expensive and most importantly it smells incredible.

You can pick up your very own bottle of Prada Candy Florale from the Fragrance Direct website and is available in 30ml for £33.50, 50ml for £46.50 and 80ml for £62.99.

Have you smelt this perfume beaut's?? What did you think?? I'd love to know.

  2. I haven't smelled a lot of the perfumes that are out. They usually give me a headache. This one sounds pretty though. I like florals and citrus scents.
