In my pursuit to experience and review every fragrance available, I offer you Prada Candy by Prada, which provides the delicious aroma of amber and vanilla fragrance designed for women.
The superlative nose behind this fragrance is Daniela (Roche) Andrier, who provides Carmel’s generous top notes with middle notes best described as powdery notes with musk, and the base notes include Benzoin and Vanilla.
Prada Candy by Prada is an award-winning fragrance, having earned the Jasmine Award five times. The other awards include the Innovation Award (2018), the Independent Soundbite Award (2017), Digital Experience Award (2017), and Digital Award (2015 and 2013).
Prada Candy by Prada is an exciting fragrance break from Prada’s tradition. Although still well crafted and despite the sweet name and uber-cute bottle, the opening is a mixture of everything; the musk is clean, the benzoin is wonderfully fuzzy, and the caramel is gorgeously sweet burned sugar. What marks this fragrance special is the touch of something fruity in the top notes.
The Benzoin resin adds texture to a fragrance, and what’s exciting and sophisticated is what lurks underneath the sweet caramel. Still, there is no question about the luxurious feeling of wearing something that feels like Prada.
Despite the youthful color and shape of the bottle, it’s a solid Mother’s Day choice. The fragrance is ten-out-of-ten and available as 30, 50, and 80 ml Eau de Parfum. Prada Candy EDP 80 ml $ 130
