Prada Candy Eau de Parfum: Review

Prada Candy Eau de Parfum - Candy is the new feminine fragrance of Prada. It enriches the Prada Fragrance universe with another vision of the brand: colorful, pop and explosive. Prada Candy incarnates the new Prada woman: she's daring, sensual, full of life. The perfume is named after the seductive and joyful girl who is running wild.

The new Prada Candy Eau de Parfum is another of the freebies-from-Sephora perfumes that I have.  A vanilla-scented perfume that comes in bright pink packaging, I doubt if I would have bothered picking this up on my own.  Since this is a deluxe-sampler version, it doesn't have a spray.  The original version, though, is a spray, and from what I have read in the reviews, the cap doesn't come off - the cap is just designed to look one and is the actual spray nozzle for the perfume - so don't try taking it off!

Prada Candy Eau de Parfum - Fragrance Notes

Top Notes:  Regressive notes of joyful carefreeness, explosion of caramel.
Middle Notes:  Powdery notes of sophistication, cocktail of musks.
Base Notes:  Vanilla, benzoin overdose.

Style:  Carefree, sophisticated, sensual.

The first whiff I took of the Prada Candy, all I could think of was there couldn't be a more suitable name for this perfume - the fragrance opens with an overwhelming sweetness!  On my skin, though, this is most definitely a warm, caramel-vanilla scent with a powdery muskiness to it as the smell settles.  This is definitely for those who like sweet, vanilla-scented perfumes, but it has a bit of lightness and warmth to it that stops it from being cloyingly sweet.  The big plus point for me - the fragrance stays on a really long time on my skin.  Overall, I would pick the Prada Candy Eau de Parfum for someone younger and/or people who love sweeter smells - and a perfect fragrance to wear during the cooler fall months.

  2. Hmm..do give it a try in store, Ritu. It's not terribly sweet on my skin - in the bottle initially it felt a little too sweet.

    1. Don't twist the cap off the way I have shown in the photo..the original/regular versions have the nozzle built into the cap!

  5. The coupon codes are usually there in the weekly specials section..this one was CANDY...By "teeny vials" do you mean the ones that are in the pick-3-free-samples list? Cos, this isn't very big either - just looks bigger in the photos :D

    1. In fact, there is one right now for a sample of Guerlain la petite robe noire - the code for that is NOIRE..in case you don't find it...it's not worth running up to Sephora just for this, but if you are buying things anyway is fun to get these samplers :D

    2. Yes the pick 3 samples is what I meant..I usually use the codes for something else as I am no big perfume person..but I got this la petite noire last time and is loving it..smells luxurious :) also I got the DKNY 4 sampler pack which includes all the 4 london,paris,rio and one more,forgot..surprisingly they are great fragrances,though they dont last long..Oh well,I think thats just my skin..:(

    3. Oh I wanted to get that DKNY pack - it's been out stock for so long now :(( I think the DKNY scents are generally not that great on the lasting power - but I find them quite nice, otherwise. So the Guerlain fragrance is nice, is it? I knew I should have added that into the bag last time - got a Lancome skincare sampler instead :|
