Candy by Prada will hurt your teeth
As soon as I heard Prada came out with a fragrance with caramel, vanilla and sugar, all my favourite tasty ingredients, I couldn't wait to shower in it. The design of the bottle caught my attention. The sleek cylinder shape of pink and gold stands proud with a cap of what looks like Moe's hair cut from the Three Stooges, attached to a very skinny neck. The perfume releases a decent amount of imbue with an effortless pump. Holding the container, a tantalizing odour was seeping out and I was lost in my own sweet reverie... that is of course until I mist it on myself. The sweetness was so pronounced making it seem that you just ate a whole bag of sugar. That would have been great if the
syrupy scent subsided, but it didn't. I was confused if I should brush my teeth due to a sudden twinge or take a tylenol for a growing headache. Caramel being the only top note is quite evident, yet there's still a powdery notes of Cocktail of Musks in the mid section and Vanilla and Benzoin as the base whom all help with the illusion of giving you a cavity. The aroma wasn't horrible, but it wasn't delightful either.
For the sweet candy addicts out there, remember too much of a good thing, isn't good.
