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
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!
It smells exactly like old ladies to me. Not nice friendly old ladies...the scary ones. I think it's the benzoin.
I like this from my Nordstrom freebie sample, but I'm one of those people who thinks it smells like Un Bois Vanille. And since I already have a bottle of UBV, I think I'll pass on buying this!
Ok, so my first reaction to smelling this scent I HAD to have it... bought it... regret it. The reason being that at first it's sweet and almost powdery but in a nice warm way... then there is this "other" note, spicy(almost pepper like) and then sickly and then I feel nauseous. I really wish I could wear Candy for more than 30seconds but once I put it on I just can't wait to wash it off so the spicy/peppery note will go away and take my nausea with it. It's very possible that this scent simply does not agree with my body chemistry and this goes from being a warm, kind, beautiful princess in a bottle to a nasty, evil, sickening witch on my skin! haha
EDIT:::: I've decided this fragrance smells like cigarette smoke and sickly caramel ... that's it. No thanks.
