🍬 Hey Prismpoppers! Today I have a super sweet, lovely spray perfume. This is the Prada Candy Eau de Parfum. You may have known that Prada sells clothes, shoes, and especially bags. But did you know Prada also has fragrances?! I didn’t! I was so pleasantly surprised to find a tester opportunity from Prismpop to try this perfume, especially because I love sweet scents. I like to do the spray and walk method, where you spray the perfume high into the air and then walk into it, letting the scent fall onto you.
✨ When I'm looking for a new perfume, I look at the price first, then the key notes (scent), how long the perfume lasts and the amount in each bottle. I also prefer the fragrance to be able to be versatile, so I can wear it everywhere. Price is pretty big for me in fragrance. I'm not a big fan of shelling out hundreds of dollars for an expensive perfume, so I typically stick with fragrance under $80 unless it's gifted to me. My favorite scents and the key notes I often look for in fragrance are warm florals, sweet scents, or fruity scents. I'd prefer my perfume to last all day, but also being a faint and light scent. I have a sensitive nose and can't stand an overload of fragrance, and I'm certain there are others like me. I also understand that nose blindness (when your nose gets used to a certain smell so you don’t smell it anymore) is a thing and I definitely don’t want to overwhelm anyone else. The amount is also really important to me - I'd be willing to pay more for more fragrance in a bottle and if it can last me a long time.
🍬 About Prada Candy
This is a romantic perfume with caramel and musk powdery notes and includes benzoin and vanilla. It’s ideal for women who love sweet fragrances and was originally launched by Prada in 2011! The fragrance begins with creamy, sweet caramel notes that transition to a heart of musk and powdery notes.
- Smells sweet, light and deliciously romantic.
- Lasts on the skin + body for quite a while!
- Versatile, I can wear it anywhere and I’ve gotten so many compliments on my perfume.
- Not overpowering, it’s a subtle scent that I’ve been told can’t be detected unless they try to smell it or are close to me.
- I wish there was more product in the container. This container contains 10ml for $30. Personally I find this too expensive.
