Spring saw the release of the DKNY Delicious Delights – A limited edition collection of fragrances inspired by Sweet Sorbet Treats. These Sorbet Perfumes come in the iconic Be Delicious apple packaging which is something we all recognise and associate with DKNY. The bottles are really pretty and I like that they’re frosted glass and pastel coloured, perfect for Spring / Summer, mine looks so cute on my vanity.
The scents themselves are quite sweet and fresh but each one is so different. I was drawn to Cool Swirl* (green) because although it’s quite sweet it still has a musky layer to it and that’s my kind of scent.
Cool Swirl (green) – is a refreshing tropical scent with top notes of black cranberry (or European blueberry), violet leaf and coconut water. Flowers of magnolia and jasmine are wrapped in creamy pistachio sorbet and laid on the base of heliotrope, musk and patchouli.
Dreamsicle (orange) – is a fresh fruity blend of mandarin, raspberry and blueberry at the top. Tempting and delicious aromas of green apple, peach nectar and apricot sorbet form the heart. Its creamy base consists of cedar, sandalwood and vanilla.
Fruity Rooty (lilac) – is a sweet fruity scent that opens with a combination of blackberry, blueberry and mandarin. The heart of rose, violet and candied apple sorbet is followed by the base that combines elegant lily with vanilla.
I have been using Cool Swirl for a good few months now, reaching for it when the weather is warm outside. It is my Summer scent for sure, when I first spray it I can really smell the fruity notes but as it settles down the patchouli and musk come through and it smells so good. Its the perfect fun, refreshing summer scent, I think its more of a daytime scent just because it’s quite light and fresh. Cool Swirl does last quite a long time on me which is good news because the packaging is a little bulky to be carrying around in your handbag.
If you’re looking for an affordable but fun fragrance for the warmer months then you should check out the Delicious Delights collection from DKNY, let me know which one of the three you like the sound of. Also, what is your go-to Summer scent?
