Another update: you can find reviews of the Delicious Candy Apple fragrances here.
Maybe DK should listen to Ann Gottlieb. These actually sound sick-making, like a too-long day at the fair.
I loved posting these 2 bits of news right next to each other…very comical!
Well, it is not my taste either, but I think they will sell as good as the other “apple” bottle scents of DK.
I’m guessing these will be popular.
egad, I feel a little nauseated by these. But I should probably just be quiet since I can’t abide any of the DKNY Delicious offers anyhow.
Ditto…just writing out the notes (esp on Thanksgiving) made me a bit sick.
I agree—it was like a dietary aid—makes you want to skip dessert.
great. now i’m in the mood for something sweet.
luckily there may be some candied sweet potatoes or pie in your near future……personally, there’s a pie in the kitchen calling my name rather insistently this very moment…..
Hope you’ll get some sweets then!
These all sound kinda horrible, even though there is a place for fruit and candy in my collection.
I am never sure when “marshmallow” is listed as a note, if they mean the food or the herb. I have a feeling in this one it is the food.
It’s all the same…the food is from the herb, so if it’s a sweet scent it’s the same difference, no?
huh. Do marshmallows have any marshmallow in them any more? google….
One commonly proposed theory about the origin of marshmallow holds that the traditional recipe used an extract from the mucilaginous root of the marshmallow plant, a shrubby herb (Althaea officinalis), instead of gelatin; the mucilage was used to soothe sore throats. However, while concoctions of all parts of the plant have been used as medicine, a more likely origin for the modern sweet can be found in old recipes: Stems of marsh mallow were peeled to reveal the soft and spongy pith with a texture similar to manufactured marshmallow. This pith was boiled in sugar syrup and dried to produce a soft, chewy confection.
Oh, they probably don’t, but this is probably just some synthetic chemical that smells vaguely like “marshmallow” anyway.
If they had put the bottle in red, they could sell them as a candied apple at a Christmas fair ………..
The other 2 bottles are red & purple.
I had the original in my collection and I really liked that. Since then, nothing else in this range has grabbed me, apart from maybe one apple blossom limited edition they did for spring one year – but I didn’t buy it. I suppose they should milk this cash cow until it runs dry huh?
That seems to be the plan!
oh my~ the notes are so delicious! i’d prefered to eat it than spray it! lol
and those packaging is so darn cute@
I’d like to see them in person…that “stick” might be weird or cute, could go either way.
I am a sucker for a really good berry fragrance (or even a not necessarily stunningly good berry fragrance and yes, I’m looking at you, Escada) so the raspberry variety of this line does look at least worth a sniff. I’ll just be sure to do so without my daughter in tow or else we won’t get out of there without buying all three.
But really, you could slap the same formulas into a body splash for about six bucks. It kind of made me giggle to see these in an EDP concentration. All we need is for Calgon to launch luxe LE parfum concentrations of all their splashes and I believe that would balance the paradox.
I hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving. I took care of my sweet tooth making sweet potato marshmallow cassirole for everyone else. I don’t like the stuff and it was enough to put me off dessert for a while just making it, but it did smell really great. Though there may be a piece of pumpkin pie in my future later this evening.
We had some sort of sweet potatoes with candied nut topping, it was excellent! Then 3 desserts. I’m quite full
When they list “marshmallow” as a note . . . do they mean the candy or the plant? Or does it depend? And if it is the plant then how does marshmallow smell?
See discussion above…
The cola accord and the lime in the raspberry one sound intriguing… but I think I’d rather have them on their own than mixed in with all the other diabetes-inducing notes.
Well, I have friends who love this sort of thing, and they do always smell good. Just not my sort of thing.
The cola accord is what grabbed me, too. I don’t suppose anybody remembers Encore by Alfred Sung (the only oriental he ever did, as far as I know), but the very very end of the drydown–what was left over if you sprayed some on fabric–smelled a whole lot like Coca-Cola syrup, which I liked a lot.
If you want an interesting raspberry without all the other junk, you should try Demeter Raspberry Jam, which is preposterously accurate and really charming. (Their Marshmallow, not so much.) Lacoste Elegance also has quite a lot of raspberry, very unusual for a men’s scent.
It could turn out to be great fun…but so far have not loved anything in the Delicious/Be Delicious range.
I mean – why, oh why do they give this press release out (have received it on Wed. too) for something due in fberuary? Will I save my x-mas money until then to buy that?! No.
Aren’t candy apples not somehting typical for fairs and “Weihnachtsmarkt” – x-mas market? What the heck?
I hope they are going to send me this one with raspberry. Love chemical scent and taste of raspberries
Don’t know why they’re so early, but I don’t mind.
I do wish she wasn’t dropping Black Cashmere and then coming out with another of the Delicious fragrances. But, I bet the Delicious line makes a lot more money per frag so it’s likely a wise business decision.
I’m quite sure that Delicious makes more than Black Cashmere ever did, it’s true!
Wow these sound sweet enough to induce tooth rot.
Ok I am totally embarrassed to admit this but…I liked them!! Yes they were sweet as sin but I actually really liked them! The purple(berries,berries, and more berries) then the red( you could smell the cola and I actually like that the most about it) then the green(most apple of the bunch). I might give in to 1 of them. Im bad!
J, I didn’t answer because I knew I was going to review them this week:
Sounds like you liked them better than I did! Which one are you going to buy?
The red one. I think its the most fun. I love the cola in it. The green was to much apple for me to really want to have a bottle of it. And ure totally right about the purple being a cheap version of the Night so thats off my list. : )
We agree then – I liked the red best too.
