Candy | Prada

Thursday, February 12, 2015

This perfume. All I can say is. . .OH. MY. GOD. I received this luxurious gift set for Christmas from my dear sweet daddy~ Now, why it took me this long to mention is a whole other story. Let's just say my beloved camera and I did not get along when it came to snapping a few simple photos. *sigh* These photos will have to do for now though. I hope you guys don't mind too much! Enough rambling and on to this amazing perfume~ 

Candy is Prada's newest fragrance release to their ever growing line. There are three new fragrances in the line which don't exactly have the most distinct names. Candy Florale is the one I currently own and let me tell you out of the three it is the best~ It has a soft elegant feminine scent with sweet floral notes. I know many girls try to veer away from floral scents, because it reminds them of their little ol' grandmother, but I promise you your cute granny will be the last thing on your mind when this heavenly scent fills your nostrils (was that too much?). It's fresh. It's young. It's sophisticated 

If I close my eyes the scent transports me to a romantic stroll in the beautiful streets of Italy adorned with gelato stands and cute hidden cafes~ Yes, I am very aware I have quite an imagination, but no one ever said that was a bad thing! This is perfect to spritz on the oncoming Valentine Day as it is quite a flirty scent. Me on the other hand am alright with spending the evening munching chocolate and smelling divine while I'm at it. No resentment here. My cat and this pretty bottle of perfume is all I need~ 

The gift set comes with an assortment of cute bits and bobs along with the perfume. The first one obviously being the gorgeous pink gift box. I'm all about this packaging it feels extravagant and it's perfect for reusing to store some make up or jewelry afterwards. The set additionally includes a shampoo and candle which replicates the same scent and theme of the box which are super nice to use on spa days. My favorite is the complementary bag that Prada so generously included for the holiday season. I know you can't tell from my rubbish bottom photo, but it is so cute and perfect for storing staple bath items or even using for traveling (hopefully the latter. . .eeep!). The people at the counter were so nice to include perfume samples! When I was out with my dad Christmas shopping I was so fickle at what perfume I wanted. I must have turned down at the least 30 perfumes before my heart finally settled on this one. Bless their patient hearts~ 

Hey, it's not everyday a girl is gifted with a Prada perfume set~
Thank you again, daddy!
