DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom perfume
I got a small sample spray of this perfume last month when I went with hubby to a department store where he bought himself some perfume. The sales guy who attended to us was trying to convince me to buy perfume for myself too, and when I said no, he gave me a sample of this fragrance, hoping, he said, that I might come back for a full bottle. I didn’t expect to like it at all since I didn’t like the original Be Delicious perfume, but what do you know…my sample is now nearly used up.
Here’s more info about the DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom perfume:
A blend of sparkling grapefruit, cassis, and sunkissed apricot meets a blooming floral heart of muguet and rose wrapped in luminous jasmine. Fresh, vibrant, and feminine. Released in 2009.
Top notes- Grapefruit, Cassis, Apricot.
My freebie sample card- closed and opened.
When the original Be Delicious fragrance first came out, I found the packaging quite cute and kitschy, plus a lot of people seemed to like it, but it just wasn’t for me—to my nose the apple smelled way too synthetic and I found the scent too sweet and cloying, more so during hot weather. Moreover, it didn’t
work with my chemistry. When it dried down, it ended up smelling somewhat like old coins on my skin. Not good.
Be Delicious Fresh Blossom, on the other hand, is perfect for summer. I’ve been using it often, and when I can’t decide on which perfume to use, I just go for this one. It’s a lot lighter than the original Be Delicious, and I’d say it’s also more feminine. It does not smell dominantly of apple, but rather I only detect hints of fresh apple.
1.5 sample spray of Be Delicious Fresh Blossom.
The opening is fruity and smells of grapefruit, and it is slightly sweet and just smells very cool and delicious to my nose. It tones down to a warmer scent that seems to be a combination of skin and light florals. Lately I’ve been learning to appreciate floral scents more, but for those who avoid floral fragrances, I don’t think there’s any need to worry, as this is definitely not an old-lady floral type of scent (no offense though to old-lady floral fragrances- sometimes I prefer those myself). The florals in Fresh Blossom are subtle and soft, and I personally love the watery, light notes here of rose and jasmine. I also get hints of freshly-sliced apple here and there.
The drydown or base notes are supposed to be blond woods and a skin scent, and sniffing my wrist now after having put on the perfume about 2 hours ago, I’d say it smells like a clean, soft floral. Most times I don’t smell this phase of this perfume because it’s more like the fragrance just fades off. That’s actually the only thing I dislike about Fresh Blossom—it only lasts 3 hours tops, so I tend to spray this more liberally and reapply it more often than my other perfumes.
The guy at the perfume counter totally got me hooked. The 100ml size is rather costly at $72, but I ended up liking Be Delicious Fresh Blossom and I wanted it in my collection. Luckily, my birthday is in a few days and my husband has solved the problem for me by buying it as my birthday gift. I’ve chosen
to open it on the day itself. Despite inadequate lasting power, the lovely, subtle, feminine scent of this fragrance really pleases me and it’s my perfume for the summer of 2011. I highly recommend it to any girl looking for her own summer scent.
