I was so excited to try this. I had high expectations from Prada. Unfortunately I was disappointed. I like my scents to last when I put them on and get frustrated when they don't. Especially when we are being charged so much $$$ for them. Candy is quite a simple sweet, light airy musk with vanilla and caramel. The smell is pleasant, but there was no wow factor for me. I lost the scent in about 1 hour - poof it was gone (even on my clothes). Lucky I only had a sample. Definitely not full bottle worthy in my opion.

Amazing sweet smell as the name provides candy. Can be quite heady if you over do it but overall a great scent! and I will be repurchasing

At first I really liked this perfume. It was very expensive, over 100 dollars. Eventualy, now that Im through half the bottle... I am really over the smell and to be honest, It's starting to smell a little like those scented cloths that you put in the dryer. Probably wont be repurchasing.

I get more than 3 notes from this. The floral note is most apparent on cloth or paper, on my skin, it's very faint-- mostly a warmed (musky) vanilla/butterscotch/ caramel gourmand fragrance. Yes, it is another new candy perfume. But it's a deep, rich smoky candy! I say, YUM.

I'd like t add that it's not a strong fragrance. I very timidly did two spritzes from the tester bottle and it was not enough. It's a soft one!

I love this! I like that after an hour or so the smell changes and doesn't seem as sweet. It lasts forever. It seems a bit heavy for me, so i would prob wear it more in the winter than the summer. It also only takes a few sprays, you don't need to overload on it.

This is a lovely fragrance if, like me, you really like sweet gourmands. I would describe it as a classier version of Pink Sugar, as it's mostly about caramel. The lasting power is alright, not ideal, but I do suspect that I just stop smelling the scents I really like on me after a while, as this tends to happen a lot with perfumes that are described as very intense and long lasting by others.

I own this one, and on my skin it's soft caramely benzoin and just a hint of musk. It's pleasant enough and could very well be wore on a hot day.

It reminds me of a bit sweeter Flowerbomb without the patchouli.

The sillage is minimal with 3 sprays. The lasting power is okay, about 2-3 hours, which one would expect longer with a Prada price tag.

For some reason the bottle reminds me of the robot from the old Short Circuit movie.

Overall, I like Candy, but, I don't love it. It's nice enough, but, I don't think I'd repurchase it after I use all of mine. It's not overly complex or one that I long to wear much.

My husband bought this perfume for me as I have wanted it for a very long time. The fragrance is heavenly and never headache inducing or heavy or unbearable...
My husband loves it on me. I wear sweet powdery perfumes well. My other favourite are :Poeme, Angel, Ultraviolet just to give you an idea.
If I am tired of sweet fragrances, I start using Vera Wang, espacially in the summer-very refreshing.

After lemming it for quite some time, I got a large bottle and am probably in the minority here because I love it. It goes so perfectly with my body chemistry and the first time that I wore it for my man, he couldn't stop sniffing my neck lol. It's soft and almost has a slight incense quality to it on me.TM's Angel has been my signature scent since it launched and this may be up to replace it. But I think what they have in common is that they don't work for everyone. People love Angel on me but usually when they try it, they hate it. Candy seems to kinda be the same way. But that's ok...I just love it! Don't want yours? Send it my way lol!!

Okay, now everyone will start disliking my review, but I think Candy is waaaay over-appreciated. Firstly, what's with the price? It's goddamn vanilla, and caramel, and chocolate (although sniffing it more thoroughly I bumped onto something like scotch). Do you know where these can be found? That's right - anywhere. Kay, Prada guys might be running low on originality, that's perfectly acceptable... I'm not going to pay for it, though.
Secondly, I've tried so many chocolate/vanilla/caramel/ butterscotch/other-things-you-can-find-in-a-bakery perfumes 'till now, that this one really doesn't catch my eye. I even recall a couple of Sephora body waters that were more intriguing. No wonder nobody noticed I was wearing it.

Duration: Not that long, somewhere between 3-5 hours
Bottle: Truth be told it's kinda cute

Bought this on Ebay as a little treat for myself at half price, not sure I would have sprung for it otherwise, at least not this month.

I love neroli and orange blossom fragrances, and have been lemming this for a couple years. Summer's here, and the time is right...it reminds me of the Jennifer Aniston fragrance a little. Lots of white flower with beachy freshness so it's not overpowering. I am going to be using this all season. For me, a nice replacement for Bobbi Brown Beach, similar enough to fill the same niche but actually a little prettier.

I have received a tester of this product. Even though I am not a big fan of sweet smells this one has captured me. I couldnt help smelling it all the time. I have also asked some people's opinion on the smell and all said they liked it. I am definitely thinking of buying it when I finish all the fragrances that I have.

This is my new go-to scent. I received a bottle for Christmas and have gone thru it and just bought another. It is a very sweet fragrance; notes of caramel and vanilla. The worst is that it doesn't last too long and for the price it should have more staying power (took off a lippie for this). Love the bottle too!

I got this because of a suggestion from a fellow MUA member who has the same fragrance taste as I do.


This scent smells more so like a moment than a person. I imagine the hotels you see in the Armani commercials to smell like this scent. This makes me think of a very classy girl grooming her nails in the morning or a very attractive guy getting out of the shower, patting his face with a cotton towel.


It's a very clean and light fragrance, but still noticeable. I remember one night I was going to sleep and I put this on. And when I woke up my boyfriend told me that he really appreciated the scent (it's sense of light heartedness.).


This is very causal, I feel you could wear this at any time of the day anywhere. This does have a light masculine touch, but I don't think it's noticeable to other people that it's a mens cologne. Actually my boyfriend couldn't tell.


I love that if makes me feel well groomed. I know that sounds quite odd but this would be the primary reason why I love this EDT so much.

It smells exactly like old ladies to me. Not nice friendly old ladies...the scary ones. I think it's the benzoin.
