Perfume Love: DKNY Be Delicious

11:02:00 PM

I rarely post a review on fragrances, but I just feel like I had to share this long time perfume love that I've always had in my stash. It's no other than the cult favorite, DKNY Be Delicious (original scent). Not sure if you remember one of my old post, the Empties Perfume Edition. This very same scent was present in that post as well, but it was the 50ml bottle, this time I got the 100ml bottle, yay!

Product Info from DKNY
A refreshing scent in an iconic apple-shaped bottle tempts you to take a bite out of life. A sophisticated blend of apples, exotic flowers and woods creates a fresh, juicy scent that can only be called delicious.

Top Notes
Grapefruit, Cucumber, Magnolia   

Heart Notes
Apple, Tuberose, White Muguet, Rose, Violet 

Base notes
White Amber, Woods
Free-spirited. Refreshing. Unique.

Retail Price: Php 4,900 for the 100ml bottle
Got mine at Rustan's Ayala Center Cebu.
Thank you DKNY team Philippines! 

Served in a sleek metal and glass apple bottle. The scent and packaging are inspired by NYC's nickname - “The Big Apple”. Launched in the US and Canada in 2004, and early 2005 for the rest of the world.

I have been a long time fan of citrus scents, and this one's no exception. I could never forget the first time I got to wear this. I found myself amazed, as someone asked me what perfume I was wearing since it smelled so good. And I was like "oh really!?! awesome!" on top of my head. Since then this has become one of my most complimented fragrances. I guess the scent just works really well with my body chemistry? I don't know, you tell me. ^_^

Enough of the eau de parfum has been sold to keep every New Yorker spritzed and smelling “delicious” day in and day out for two solid years. Globally, over 4 million DKNY Delicious apples are sold a year. That is over 10,000 bottles a day, 6-7 every minute. Every 10 seconds, someone, somewhere, picks a Be Delicious apple off of the shelves and takes a little slice of New York’s vibrant, sophisticated, optimistic spirit home. (info from DKNY)

If only I didn't throw away the 50ml bottle, this photo above would have looked like Mom, Dad and a Baby! LOL :D

Since, I love this so much, I carry the Mini DKNY Be Delicious all the time in my everyday bag. Don't get me wrong, I've always loved mild scents. This one is actually the strongest scent I have in my perfume collection. (Yes, that's how MILD scented I want my perfumes to be) A few drops is all I need and it lasts all day long!

The DKNY Be Delicious (Green Original Scent) actually goes on slightly strong but not overwhelming on the first few spritz, then dries down to perfection! It's refreshing yet noticeable, I could tell right away that it has a hint of citrus and fruity scent. Something that you'd like to wear from spring to summer...but heck I wear this scent all year round! teeheee

How about you ladies, what are your favorites perfumes as of the moment?

Till next time.

  1. ooh this sounds like something I would love to wear since I'm getting bored with my usual scents. Thanks for the reco <3

  2. ahahaha onga sis sana hindi mo natapon! ^^ and sana its one of those containers that we can refil. kasi my fave perfume has a mini-me and cant be refilled again which is the case for most perfume and it is annoying. i remember trying this scent sa rustans and liking it - if hindi lang ako nahilo after binili ko na rin ^^

  3. My go-to is Amazing Grace by Philosophy, but I'm also a fan of this scent. I remember thinking that green apple might smell juvenile, but was indeed surprised that this didn't smell like artificially-flavored candy at all. Refreshing came to mind. :)

  4. So far I love Nina Ricci L'Eau! Lakas maka fresh and young ng scent. Medyo into musky scents ako, I even like using my boyfriend's perfume hahaha. I want to try this too! i have a citrus scent perfume from Guerlain, Mandarin siya I think, have you tried that? :)


Leave me a comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. ^_^
