I wanted to buy the original version but grabbed this one by mistake, at first I did not like it because I found it way to powdery and heavy. But I continued to use this last winter and started to like it, this gives me that old vintage lipstick kinda vibe. It is a warm powdery floral and spicy fragrance with reasonable lasting power, but it does need a touch up during the evening. I have now finished my bottle and while I enjoyed the fragance in colder seasons I don't feel the need to repurchase this again.

The progression of this EDP goes like this -
a blast of alcohol, hairspray, noxious chemical spill and, finally , the scent of those old Bullseye caramel candies my mom used to like. It gave me a little bit of a headache.

Ladylike and womanly, not girlish. It is sweet, yet classy. Romantic.
I carry the rollerball around in my purse for the perfect touch to any day.

This is a quite safe scent. Perfect for office use or in contact with children, but it can also be a good option for any social occasion. It is very powdery, and the iris note is intense but, interestingly enough, it is also woody, which I very much appreciate. If you like iris, you could also try Love Chloe edp to compare.

WTH happened with this perfume?? Was it reformulated? I'm so upset, because this has been one of my faves since it launched, and yet it doesn't last at all anymore.

Yesterday I picked up the Sephora sample box to test some new fragrances, because it comes with a certificate for a full size bottle of a perfume of my choosing.

I immediately spritzed this on because I've always loved it so much even though I haven't tried some of the other perfumes. The scent disappeared within minutes, just like a weak body spray!!

This is horrible. :( I even asked my husband to smell my wrist and neck, because I was in denial about it. He said, "That's the weakest perfume I've ever smelled. I feel sorry for any woman that buys it."

This is a travesty! I hope this is just a fluke. I will update as soon as I find out for sure.

Fragrances -Prada -Candy Kiss (2016)

This scent hits the mark! It is a skin scent, milky and musky. The orange blossom is done right, not over powering, but there and beautiful. One of the best from the Prada Candy line in my opinion! Subtle, but powerful.

I have no idea why the last reviewers didn't like this perfume..
the scent is strong and you can sense it on you for hours. when I first used it I got so many compliments. it does not irritate my skin or whatever. if you like fruity perfumes this one's for you.

Fragrances -Prada -Candy Kiss (2016)

on 6/9/2016 3:51:00 AM

You may wonder why I have gone to the trouble of putting 2016 in brackets next to the name. Prada has released two fragrances with the name Candy Kiss - one released in 2015 in a short rounded bottle with a black spray top, and one released in February 2016 in a tall cylindrical bottle with a white spray top. This is the one I am reviewing.

Prada Candy Kiss in the tall cylindrical bottle is a very simplistic fragrance in composition. I have reproduced the press release blurb below.

Prada Candy Kiss, the new fragrance, channels the addictive nature of the Candy composition and enhances its characteristic scent of musk. Inspired by obsession and repetition, Prada Candy Kiss is designed to re-activate emotions and impressions. It evolved from the idea of creating a loop of sensations out of a single signature note wrapped around the body.Musk in its signature purity is omnipresent in the composition; from the upper notes to the base. It evokes delicate white cotton in a sensual fragrant cloud, enriched with uplifting notes of vanilla and orange blossom.

On me it smells like marshmallow mixed with white musk. I don't get much of the orange blossom at all, which is a shame because I love orange blossom in fragrances. In many ways it's absolutely lovely but it's not interesting enough to justify the price. In Australia, you're looking at around $80-90 for 30mls.

I have skin that eats some perfumes so even though this is sold as an eau de parfum, it's not strong enough for me. I want to be enveloped in a light cloud of fragrance, rather than have to sniff my wrists.

Longevity: 4-5 hours
Sillage: Soft (a bit of a wrist sniffer on me)

I'm not sure who I would suggest this for. It's nothing like the original Prada Candy. It's out of the price range of most teenage girls. I guess it's a grown up gourmand suitable for people who like vanilla musk body sprays and want to spend more money than they need to.

Save your money and look around for a good vanilla based body spray instead. If you live in Australia, may I suggest Vanilla Addict by Evodia instead (normally 20 bucks for 100mls).

Overall, it's a pretty scent and fits the sweet category for me. The notes are Caramel, Musk, Vanilla, and Benzoin. I see this as the older sister of Pink Sugar or similar scents (which I also like). Though, I wouldn't say it's overly special or unique.

Alot mention that this scent doesn't last well. The downside of this is that some tend to really bathe in it. I've noticed this walking by or sitting next to some and it can be nauseating - like anything that's applied to heavily.

I'm in love with Prada Infusion D'Iris Eau De Parfum. It is bright, airy, clean and undefined unlike Chanel N19 Poudre and other perfumes. When I need a mood uplift and to feel confident, I know I can count on this perfume. It's simply euphoric . . . one spray and it feels like sunshine with singing birds around me. It's fresh, but soft and not in sharp citrus windex way. On me, it does dry down to an exhilarating sweetness that invokes a feeling of happiness. I am ultra-sensitive especially to alcohol and need to spray my perfume on my clothes . . . usually near the side bottom of my pants and let the perfume rise which works for me. Best of all, no headache. Love.

Fragrances -Prada -Candy Florale

on 3/10/2016 11:12:00 AM

It saddens me the reviews are so mediocre for this.

I agree I don't understand why this is part of the prada candy line. Nothing about this resembles candy gourmand. This is a white floral/ soapy/ peony fragrance.

I bought this for the spring/summer and to me this is similar to EJ nirvana white. It's peony/musk/clean. But NW to me is scratchy, sharp, a peony overload and sort of hard to take. Candy florale is softer, muskier. The benzoin is a nice touch-- adding a soap quality when combined w the floral notes.

I love this. It's not groundbreaking, but for those who love a clean white floral for hot weather (I absolutely do), this is so nice. Not overly sweet, not sharp or acrid-- perfectly balanced. And the bottle is so pretty!

I blind bought this item. It seemed like something I would enjoy especially the caramel/vanilla combination. However, now that I have received the scent I am not too sure I like it. I do....but I don't.

First off, when you spray it, it definitely smells of alcohol which disappointed me for something so expensive. However, once it dries down, the scent comes through. I can sense a lot more vanilla than caramel and it has a distinct musk/baby powder smell. It actually reminds me of Love's Baby Soft. I also thought to myself that it smells like a men's cologne to me, but a tad softer.

Also, as a lot of other people are mentioning, it is a very soft fragrance. I spray this like a body mist and it still is very light. It stays all day, but I spray it liberally.

It's not TOO bad and I will wear it more to see if I get used to it, but I won't buy again.

edit:// I am actually coming into this scent and quite like it now. The more I wear the scent, the more it does start to smell caramel/vanilla like. I still spray it like a body spray since it is a very light smell but it lasts all day one me. Luckily, this ended up not being a bad buy.

I am not an expert at all in understanding or describing scents so this is not going to be a really informed review. I am kind of a minimalist and unlike many people who really enjoy their fragrance and want it to be noticed, I just like a little bit of a bit of scent. I guess I like it to be more personal, if that makes sense. I like to wear a perfume that makes me feel good and lingers only a little.

So, for me a winning fragrance is subtle and warm and interesting. I find this is exactly what I like about Prada Candy. I do understand the negatives because if you want something that makes a statement this probably isn't your pick. But this one makes me happy and I wear it every day. I have it in a rollerball and bottle and will buy it again when it is gone.
