One of the first fragrances I ever owned as a teenager was DKNY ‘Be Delicious‘ – that iconic green apple bottle would always be sat on my dressing table and I can’t even tell you how many bottles I must have gone through, with it always being on my birthday or Christmas wish list. I’m sure a lot of you will have owned this perfume at some point in your life as it’s been around for over ten years now and the brand continue to release new apple designs every year!
With this being said, I was really excited when DKNY recently invited me on board their amazing double decker bus to celebrate the launch of their brand new fragrance, Be Tempted
. As you can see by the images, the bus was kitted out with the iconic Be Delicious scent on the bottom floor and Be Tempted on the top floor, in a naughty vs nice style theme. The bottom floor was green and fresh to represent the original fragrance, and was the ‘nice’ half, whilst the top floor was red and accessorised with snakes (which looked very realistic might I add) to represent the new scent and the ‘naughty’ side. I have to say I was loving all of the sweets on offer and may have taken a small (okay, large) goodie bag away with me to scoff on my way home – the jelly snakes were a personal fave. Don’t you just love when brands have such great attention to detail at their events? I could tell all of the team were really excited about the new launch too!
The packaging for ‘Be Tempted’ is still the classic apple shaped bottle, but this time it’s luxurious red glass with a pretty metallic lid and snake embellishment. I love the whole concept of the packaging and the naughty vs nice theme – the lovely ladies from DKNY told me that it plays on the story of Adam and Eve and the ‘forbidden apple’ which is such a cool idea and definitely represented in the scent itself. It has a sensual, seductive and sophisticated vibe about it – it’s a very grown up scent and the first one like it from Be Delicious. It would be perfect for date night as it’s definitely a scent to wear when you want to impress and feel confident. It’s crazy how certain fragrances can make you feel so much better about yourself but this is definitely one of those. I’ve been wearing it all day today and it lasts so well. I can’t normally smell perfumes on myself but I keep getting a whiff of this which is delightful, if I do say so myself.
I’m not the best at summarising a fragrance and obviously it all comes down to personal preference so I’d highly recommend you go and give it a sniff for yourself but what I will say is that it’s SO lovely – I think I might even prefer it over the original scent, and that’s saying something as I love the original a lot. It’s notes include blackcurrant bud, red fruit accord, orange flower, vanilla and myhrr, just to name a few. It’s sweet and fruity but also musky and sensual – it’s a hard one to explain but it has the perfect mixture of femininity and sassiness (yes, I just used the word sassiness – why not?!).
If you like the look of this brand new offering from DKNY, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s available to buy from The Fragrance Shop
tomorrow and I just know it’s going to be a huge success. It’s priced at £37.00 for 30ml, £50.00 for 50ml and £69 for £100ml – add it to your wish list ladies!!
