Fragrance is something I’ve developed a taste for as I get older. There was once a time I needed expert help to choose a fragrance but now I know which scent families work for me – fresh, fruity and woods. DKNY’s Be Delicious franchise is one of the most popular fruity fragrances to hit the market, but would their higher-concentrated Eau So Intense version be too strong? Read my review to find out if you’ll want to take a bite out of this apple.
- Eau So Delicious is packaged in a similar bottle to the rest of the Be Delicious range except it has a mirrored green lid instead of silver as per the original. The shape resembles an apple and it’s perfectly themed for the fresh scent that features the core scent of apple.
- The floral notes in this scent aren’t overpowering and actually compliment the fruit and wood notes perfectly. I’m not a big fan of florals but even I like the notes that do come though. For me, the magnolia top and violet middle comes through the most. The base is beautifully woodsy.
- Unlike many apple-focused fragrances, this one does not smell like a cleaning product (although I do love apple-scented cleaning products!). It’s most definitely a fragrance with punch and noticeably more so than the original Be Delicious.
- As it is an Eau de Parfum it does have good wear time. I find it carries through most of my day, unravelling the scent as it dries and the temperatures of the environment change. I add a fresh spritz if I’m going out in the evening.
