I'd heard about Candy, of course, but didn't realize how popular it really is until I got my sample rollerball in a sephora.com order, and realized that I've been smelling it everywhere for the past few years.

Candy is tricky for me to describe. I'm constantly sniffing myself while wearing it, trying to qualify it (and also because I like it). It's warm and sweet, but not overly sweet; the name made me wary, but it's much less sweet than, say, many Bath & Body Works scents. There's nothing artificial. To riff off another reviewer below me, it smells like a perfume (as opposed to a fragrance that's trying to copy the scent of something that isn't a perfume). To me, it isn't foody at all, just sweet and warm. It's also completely lacking in any strong muskiness or indolic nature, so it's very safe. It helps that the sillage is quite close. In very generic, subjective terms, it's a great option with which to smell sweet, yummy, and expensive, all at the same time. The reviewers who described it as "grown up Pink Sugar" nailed it.

In any case, it lasts for about 12 hours on me. Candy isn't terribly interesting; it's definitely one of those perfumes that you wear, rather than it wearing you. Personally, I like more distinctiveness in my everyday fragrance, but Candy is really well done and flattering, so I'll be holding onto this quite generous sample.

This is totally different from others in the Candy line, at least on me. Smells floral in a synthetic, old-lady sort of way. Lasting power not great, which makes it a poor value if you like the scent.

I received a bottle of this and did use it all but would not repurchase since it is too "sweet" smelling hence the name candy. It's not bad it's just not me. I prefer Chanel Chance since I love the scents and always get compliments. I don't recall anyone asking me what I was wearing when using this perfume.

I've been looking for a nice everyday perfume for days that I didn't want to have to think about what to wear. This is definitely what I was looking for! Just gourmand enough since that's my favorite genre, but still fresh enough from the musk to keep it perfectly casual. The kind of perfume that goes with every outfit, especially with Uggs and jeans in the fall.

I bought the gift set with the body lotion which is lovely as well. While the sillage isn't super strong, I find that this perfume lasts throughout the day pretty well. I would totally buy a deodorant (like the famous Cashmere Mist) in this scent if they made one. 


It smells how a hug from my son when he was little felt. So warm and snuggly, my new happy scent. Vanilla and lightly caramelized, it's like a grown up version of the Viva La Juicy line. And I love the bottle!!

This is a light floral -very generic -scent. A little lighter than Chanel Chance but you get the idea. If you like Chance, you should give this a try. I got a sample from Sephora but frankly im not too crazy 'bout flowers as I prefer oud. This is sthg I`d wear for Summer. Its too light for me and I dont see myself splurging a full size bottle .The pink cap is cute and feminine. The long bottle fits easily in purse/evening clutch.

Happy i could try but sure gonna give this a miss!

I actually had a sample vial of this. After a few days of testing, I gave up on it and threw it away. I did not find it any better than the original Prada Candy. Less cloying, but still odd mix of sweet and musky that quickly dwindled to nothingness. It just didn't do anything for me.

For those who would like to know details about the scent: "a trinity of white musks, benzoin and caramel are heightened by the presence of citrus and oriental floral notes to create a vibrant ensemble."

I absolutely love this! It's a powdery, peony with a touch of benzoin. It cheers me up instantly. I can still smell it on my neck after a long 12 hour shift. It's very underrated, and can be found for pretty cheap online. This will always be in my collection.

This is a clean, powdery, citrusy, floral, spring scent with good sillage. While it is lovely, I won't wear it because it reminds me of a certain brand of bug spray.

The white cotton, musk, and orange blossom do not make for a good fragrance or mix. It also seemed to irritate my skin, I will not purchase.

This is a lovely scent. My only complaint is that it smells too perfumy, if you know what I mean. In other words it's got so many scents mixed in that at times it just smells like most perfumes do. It's just a bit sweet, despite the name, it has a nice balance of muskier low scents and higher floral scents. I like it, but like others have noted it does not last long.

Try this: put some almond or other similar oil on your wrist then spray on perfume, and it'll stay longer. The oil helps it last.

Prada Candy is a lovely perfume - young, fun and sweet. It is gorgeous and smells to me like a grown up caramel and vanilla. It is very warm and has good projection - though the base notes wear close to the skin. I can smell this on myself all day. It is a very sweet and musky perfume, quite deep and warm without becoming too heavy. It is a young fragrance but suitable for all ages. The muskiness and warmth prevent it from smelling juvenile. This perfume would be great for both day and evening wear. I think it would be a perfect scent to wear on a date, or on a girls' night out. I love this perfume and would definitely repurchase.

Top Notes: Caramel.
Heart Notes: Powdery Notes, Musk.
Base Notes: Vanilla, Benzoin.

I have loved this scent since the very first time I tried it! Luckily, it was close to my birthday and I was so excited to receive a large, 2.7 oz. bottle as a gift! This fragrance is sexy, sweet, musky and intoxicating. I will agree with the many other reviews in that the longevity of the scent leaves something to be desired, which is my only negative thought on this fragrance. A few other of my personal favorite scents for reference: Black Opium YSL, Alien Thierry Mugler, See By Chloe, Juicy Couture, Flowerbomb Viktor & Rolf, I Love Her Just Cavalli, Touch Burberry. If the above list stings the nostrils, this probably is not for you. Mostly, it reminds me of a grown-up Pink Sugar; much like The Carrie Diaries is to Sex & the City, if you will.

On me, (also female) this is warm, almost gourmand. It strikes me as a winter scent. It almost smells hot, which is odd, but kind of fun. Interesting fragrance.

This perfume is by far one of my favorites! You'll want to use every last drop! But with it, a little goes a long way. I put some in a small roller ball container and only dab a bit on my key pulse points when going out. When I actually spray it, the scent lasts on my clothes for days! The scent is very feminine and absolutely addicting! I have to refrain myself from bathing in it. It dries quickly on the skin (I hate perfume that take a while to dry or just stays damp) plus, the bottle is super cute!

I fell in love with this perfume when using a sample I got from Sephora so when the holiday full size came out with the free lotion I scooped it up. But since then I've been disappointed in its lasting power. Bummer!
