Well this is possibly one of the strangest (and fastest-fading) perfumes for me. I was expecting a pungent apple scent, which upon first spray, does not happen (which is a relief for me). I can't even describe the scent when first sprayed. But to me, at no point does this to me smell like a perfume. Whatever scent is there, completely disappears within less than half an hour, and that is even if I spray this numerous times when first applied. I guess if pressed to describe the scent I would say it smells a little like clean laundry (and even that is stretching it) for about the first 20 minutes and then..nothing. No smell, nothing. I did read that this is similar to Dior J'adore, and I disagree. To me this smells nothing like J'adore and this disappears what feels like at the speed of lightning. To me this smells like a fresh laundry basket and the scent disappears almost as fast as the scent of fresh laundry does. I do love the shape of the bottle, it is so easy to spray, which my bad wrists appreciate. I loved the DKNY Be Delicious Creamy Meringue, but this one was a disappointment for me. Bought this in a department store, so I know it is not old nor a knockoff. For the price point I kind of expect a fragrance to last more than 20 minutes. Just a strange perfume, at least for me. Would not recommend and will not repurchase.

I absolutely love this scent and I'm so sad to know that it's been discontinued for awhile. Mine has been around for a good 2 years and it's really amazing. Imo, it's a perfect fix between a fruity and floral scent. It's also pretty lightweight and doesn't smell overpowering at all. The only problem I have is the nozzle, which can't aim for nuts and the shape of the perfume, which is too bulky for my liking. Despite that, I love this and wear it all day. Will be scrambling to find a replacement since this scent has bit the dust! 4/5

I got whiffs of this from a client and i had to ask her. I fell in love with the scent. I got a bottle almost immediately. Wore it for a zouk festival... OMG it is sooooo dizzingly floral ... I couldnt dance! I felt queasy. I squirted too much I think! I`ve learnt to do just small amounts. Its lasts forever... even on my clothes after a wash. I would save this for intimate dates/ if i want to fall in love all over again. This is a romantic scent. Definitely not for office. The golden packaging is elegant and classy. It is expensive but DKNY EDP lasts and worth splurging on.

I'm not a fan of "Be Delicious" but I love "Golden Delicious". I get a lot of compliments every time I wear it. To me, "Be Delicious" is too apple-ish smelling. I don't want to smell like apples. "Golden Delicious" doesn't smell like apples and that's what I love about it. I first smelled it in a Kohl's ad. As soon as I smelled it, I knew I had to have it. Unfortunately, it was hard to find because it was--by then--a discontinued item. Even though Kohl's had it in their flyer, I didn't find it in their stores or at their website. Finally I got it online elsewhere. Hooray! This is a wonderful not-to-sweet scent. Don't know how else to describe it. The bottle is crazy, though. It's shaped like an apple and is difficult spray. You can't line up the nozzle with where you want it sprayed. Recently I wanted to spray my neck and it ended up in my mouth. Tasty! It also tends to squirt the fragrance on instead of spraying it. But poor bottle design doesn't keep me from liking this scent...a lot! Too bad it's discontinued.

As i was getting ready for work this morning i spritzed myself with this glorious scent. After getting dressed i stepped out on my porch into the cool, crisp morning air and i was suddenly surrounded by splendid golden apples, roses and lily of the valley. Golden Delicious is the most floral of all the "delicious" scents and it is the most gorgeous. It's almost identical to the original just a tad bit more floral and that is what i like. I am working in my office and whenever i leave it and come back to it the splendid scent of sparkling golden apples is there to welcome me back.

I absolutely love the scent its got a very peachy and fresh fruit smell. Biggest con is that the scent does not last long at all for me. Only time Ive ever had someone say they can smell it is IMMEDIATELY after spraying.

I have been a big fan of the original Be Delicious for years and years. I got a sample of this and it smelled so good. I bought a full size bottle at Sephora. It definitely has a clean floral smell with some powder notes in it. I wear this to work sometimes and I've gotten compliments on it. After a while, it seems kind of generic to me. It didn't smell as good as the sample (they must put crack in those samples because I always go crazy for the sample and then the perfume is just eh). I prefer the fruitier scent of the original to this. This perfume does have good staying power. I just think there are better scents out there for me. I do have a complaint about the bottle. It's awkward to try and spray because of the round shape.

On contrast to most of the other reviews who find the scent boring, I LOVE this perfume - and it is the only one I have I never get tired of!I absolutely hate heavy sweet floral scents, and I am not to keen on very fresh sporty scents either - and this one is just in between!The scent is very light and on me it smells even better than in the bottle! I always get compliments when I wear it, and even from strangers!I feel like I smell clean when I wear it, like newly washed bedsheets and rain!And I recently found out it won in a perfume contest here in scandinavia where 2000 men had to smell 100 different perfumes and pick the one they liked the most :D So I guess most guys aren't keen on heavy scents either!As the scent changes on you (like most perfumes) I would advice you try to spray some on you, and see if it "fits" :)I love it so much!

I often wished they came up with a sweeter version of this series and they have now. Only, it smells kind of flat, dull and tired on me. I'll have to pass. 2.5
