Today I already had an early morning appointment at the dentist for professional tooth cleaning. I'm not afraid of visiting the dentist and cleaning my teeth doesn't hurt either, but there are still places I prefer to visit. After an hour of cleaning and a subsequent prophylaxis examination, I was pretty fed up and made a detour to our local Müller branch for relaxation and distraction. Maybe they got something new in and I needed cat food anyway. Yes, there was something new on the shelf: Golden Delicious by DKNY. I know it's not new, it's been around for years. Since 2011, when we were visiting my brother in Berlin. My sister-in-law also liked the pink and green apple very much and told me about this new scent she wanted to get the following week. All I meant was that he was new at this store. Our Müller branch is very small, but very cosy, and every now and then a new scent comes in, but another one comes out. I always liked this golden apple very much and I was of the opinion that I was allowed to treat myself this morning after all the Piesackerei. He also had a bargain, 19.95/30ml.
Golden Delicious cannot deny its relationship to the green Be Delicious and also to the pink Fresh Blossom. All three go, contrary to the newer Flankern, in a similar direction. By the way, I find the newer ones horrible, I like to smell the three old ones. Golden Delicious doesn't really smell like apple to me, though. Whereby Golden Delicious apples have no strong apple aroma anyway, so that's okay and I don't miss the apple scent great. Instead, the fragrance is beautifully floral-fresh at the beginning. I smell mainly orange blossom, but none that smells like suntan lotion. The orange blossom simply smells like orange blossoms, just like the air in Florida in the evening. From there I also know the scent of orange blossom and love it very much. I can't smell a mirabelle plum. The heart note is marked by lily and lily of the valley, towards later it becomes a delicate vanilla. I can't see any roses. The scent is not very woody in the base, except for sandalwood I smell nothing else, not even musk.
For me, Golden Delicious is a very familiar, homey fragrance. Even if I don't smell apples and don't find the scent sweet, I still have to think of a warm, fragrant apple pie. The fragrance is very familiar and gives me a sense of security, it is extremely friendly and homely to me. A rather discreet, body-hugging fragrance, if you don't overdo it with spraying. Here my standard dosage of 3-4 sprayers distributed on upper body and arms for 4-5 hours is enough for me. He could make an extra hour in the fall if it's really cool.
I think the bottle's pretty. The lid can be easily removed by turning it, with the 15ml version this is always a problem until you get it down. And with the 50ml the spraying mechanism is in the lid, I find now also not so practical. I find the rating of 6.4 a little bad for this fragrance, I pers. think there are far worse ones. But it's always a matter of taste and it doesn't matter to me personally. :)
