This is indeed very amazing I got this perfume about 4years ago never wore it because it smelled not sweet floral with hints of red Apple wine cherry that's how I smell this perfume I've seen in amazon but I've seen review of people getting ripped off and I don't want to take a chance so I use this perfume rarely

I got this for a present...
I rarely wear it. It is way to sweet and artificial for me.
It's kinda cute and girly though.
I don't like it.

This is my FAVORITE perfume, and sadly I just found out it has been discontinued. The smell is so rich, fruity and juicy. Everyone keeps saying it's a summer scent, but to me it reminds me more of fall/winter..the crisp sweetness makes me think of an Autumn day walking through the leaves changing wearing a peacoat and a scarf. Ha, I guess I'm going to have to go on the internet and buy a huge bulk of it, because I have yet to find anything even remotely similar.

i like this perfume. but not love it. i find it has a very strong sweet smell. just spray a little amount to my body is enough. if i spray more ill get headache. but somehow the smell stays all day, which is good ;D

This scent makes me simultaneously hungry and feel sick. Some perfumes give me a light headache, this is one of them. Smells cheap-ish after a few hours..much prefer the green apple one from this line. Would not re-purchase.
Im not good at detecting scents/notes in perfumes so will leave that up to other reviewers, reminds me of a perfume you should wear in Autumn.

Fruity head notes, more raspberry than apple, makes this a fun and youthful fragrance. And I'm a little too old for it. The heart of this scent is floral, crisp, reminiscent of autumn. Finally, dries into a romantic "great for a first date" still-more-floral-than-fruity scent. Could have come in a flower-shaped bottle (as opposed to apple), and I would never have been the wiser. Every time I smell the samples of this in the glossy fashion mags, I pine for my own bottle. Now that I have it, I realize it's way too young for me. For what it's worth, there's good harmonies here. Might be very enjoyable to a casual-chic-feminine college student.

I bought this at the airport in Vienna - dutyfree :-). I really like this fragrance as it is "fresh and young". It doesn't stay on for long, though.
I'm not so crazy about the spray dispenser. It always seems to be stuck. I don't whether I just happened to get a difficult one or whether this is the case with all the Be/Red Delicious fragrances.
Anyhow, I would buy again!

I do not care for this at all. At first I did get the great smell of a red apple and then it turned into a cheap smelling drug store perfume?! Maybe this just didn't work with my body chemistry, but I scrubbed off my arm, it was that bad on me. I do like the green one much better. My favorite apple perfume is Nina by Nina Ricci.

I don't get that fresh and summer like feel with Red Be Delicious. I got that smelly old lady in the room feel with this. Initially, at the first spritz, I enjoyed Red Be Delicious more than the other Be Delicous scents. At first, this comes off "pretty" with a strong floral nose followed by lingering fruity notes. However, as this dries down, it turns racid on me. When my body temp warms this up, the patchouli screams out loud and the floral consumes the senses giving me a bloody headache and makes me sick to my stomach. I spritzed this on before taking a walk on a hot and humid day---Bad Idea! I couldn't wait to come home and take a shower. I did however love the packaging (it's so cute) and the fragrance itself is reasonably priced.

Hey, this one is EDP, not EDT. Its very charming n delicious at top notes, wine mix with the mellow red apple n strawberry, u might just wanna take a bite out! I hope it lasts longer but it dried down quickly to the middle notes, a bouquet of Rose n patchouli, Its quite heavy n a bit synthetic, sadly those middle notes stay long :-( The base notes are better in powdery n musk, hint of flowers, slightly warm. At all, this red apple is nice! But after my bottle run out, I wont repurchase it. I prefer the Green apple to this one.

If you don't like the smell of flowery perfume, stay away. I personally like a wide variety, and this happens to be one of my faves. It is VERY floral. It's staying power is okay, and it leaves me smelling fresh. Great summer perfume. The bottle is a round container. One problem is that its hard to spray directly at you, instead you are required to either bend your hand awkwardly, or walk into the mist. It is very strong at first, but tames down a bit after time. This is very nice, I recommend you to try it. The only reason I would not buy it again is because I would like to try many more scents and brands.

This one is a bit too raspberry-ish on my skin. It gets too strong on me and irritates my smelling senses. But I am sure if one prefers sweeter perfumes this one might work for them in DKNY be delicious collection.

Well, I didn't like the original be Delicious so I figured I'd sample this one. It starts out rather strong and almost offensive to me. I don't get apples or any fruit for that matter. It does eventually settle down and there is this fairly pleasant sweetness; more floral to me than fruit but it also smells cheap (synthetic) and shallow. I tend to prefer very rich and sensual or fresh and flirty smelling scents but this is neither. Less depth than BBW stuff. Yet this is not bad and I probably would have liked it if I were yougner but it simply is not sophisticated or flirty enough for my tastes today.

I love floral perfumes but thought I would try something a bit lighter and fresher for the summer.
This does tick those boxes. It doesn't smell quite as 'apple-y' as the original green Be Delicious which I like. It has a bit of a warm red apple / berry / autumn afternoon smell to it. I have been complimented while wearing it about how clean and fresh it smells.
It is quite fresh and not overpowering (usually - there is the odd day it seems to smell stronger than others). In the UK it can come with some great GWPs and I think the price is very reasonable for the sizes.
Only 4 lippies but I think that's more personal preference. Its more of a summer scent for me but I think I'll stick to my floral scents.

I don't get this fragrance. I get apples, but not sweet red delicious apples. More like fake apple gum. Actually, that's what this smells like to me.....fake apple bazooka gum with a touch of patchouli. well, guess this is one i can't pull off....

while i do not like Be Delicious i enjoy wearing this. warm and inviting for an apple scent with just the right amount of sweetness.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
This smelled mainly like flowers to me, with a little hint of fruit. I really do not like flowery perfumes, so I of course did not enjoy this. I much prefer Be Delicious over Red Be Delicious.

I would actually give this a 3.5.
I had hoped for an red apple scent (as opposed to green apple) that wasn't overly sharp and cloying, like most apple scents tend to be on me. I had also heard this scent had berry and patchouli notes in it, which I like.
In actuality I find it's a pretty typical apple scent, yes a bit softer than the Donna Karan Green Be Delicious, but still overly sweet, sharp and appley for my taste.
The berry and patchouli notes are too subtle (or perhaps nonexistent?) in my opinion.
That being said, it's a pleasant enough scent to wear once in a while when I want a change from my usual spicy or floral scents.
