Prada Candy Florale Gift Set - Link
I've been obsessed with Prada Candy Florale since seeing the advert a few months back, and while I had never asked for it over Christmas I was excited to see that it was reduced in the Boots sale over Christmas. Down to £32.99 there was only one gift set left on the shelf and I knew it was going to be mine.
Prada Candy Florale is described as a scent that has evolved from the concept of an imaginary flower created especially for Candy. Candy cannot simply have any flower, her flower must be unique, embodying her many facets: the fragrance's light airiness puts the sparkle in her, followed by tender powdery notes that echo her Spring-like grace. A final whisper of warmth and honey reflects Candy's rich sensuality. Now kudos to you if you can make any sense of that, I tell you I couldn't!
With heart notes of Peony this delicious scent is complimented with top notes of fresh limoncello and base notes of caramel, musk and benzoin, creating a sweet floral scent. When sprayed onto the skin you don't have to worry about an overbearing scent which you have to wait for it to dry, instead you are met with a fragrance that is not only fresh to smell but leaves a light sweet floral scent without being too sickly.
You all probably know that by now that I'm a sucker for anything with pretty packaging, and this fragrance really drew me in thanks to the stunning bottle and cute gift box packaging (you can't see it on my photo but the lid of the box is decorated with white flowers motifs). I adore the gold lettering around the top of the bottle, it really cements its status as a luxurious perfume, and definitely a vanity display perfume! The gift set comes with the matching body lotion which once again smells very light on the skin with floral notes and the packaging is just divine - beats my moms Radox!
This was love from first scent, with a couple of spritz on my wrists and neck I'm set for the day and I find that this baby stays put - you don't have to worry about popping it in your bag for a top up as I can still smell this when I come home on a night.
Overall I am in love with this perfume with everything from the scent to the design of the bottle, and very glad to have picked it up in the sale. For me this is my perfect floral scent as it remains refreshing and uplifting thanks to the Peony notes and can see it becoming my signature Spring/Summer scent.
