Noble sweetness in 3 states of aggregation
Today there is one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful gourmand fragrance in the Desigerbereich for you behind my 21.perfume Advent calendar door: Prada Candy.
Recently, I watched the last season of the cooking show "The Taste" practically in one through. I'm thinking of the curved tasting spoons, and today's menu features: four ways of caramel. The base is crunchy, slightly bittersweet caramel brittle, topped with a small melt-in-your-mouth tartlet of crème caramel, doused in liquid butter caramel, delicately sprinkled with caramel powder.
Who needs vanilla when you can have candy? I have a big heart for gourmand fragrances and especially for the Candy series. Here I always notice one thing: pure vanilla fragrances are often too boring and predictable for me. Quite the opposite of nougat, marzipan, cherry, chocolate or especially caramel. Yes it's sweet, yes it's sugary, yes it's pleasing, however it possesses one thing: toasty aromas. Just those deep nuances that are created when the sugar is heated and boiled down. If you overdo it, the sugar burns and turns black. This is where the colouring sugar couleur comes from, which tastes very bitter. But if you match the perfect moment and temperature, the sugar caramelizes and an incredibly addictive melange of sweet and tart notes emerges. And that's exactly how I feel about Prada Candy.
2011 I circumnavigated directly after the launch several times in the perfumeries this fragrance and diligently tested first on paper, then on the skin and ultimately decided against a purchase, because the durability on me with 2-3 hours seemed too bad. Today, however, I know how I can extend them.
The first Candy, which I then purchased as a large flacon, was the L'Eau variant. Barely tested, made as an impulse buy. This I wear more in everyday life. Later came Candy Sugar Pop and finally the original Candy. Currently I'm toying with a bottle of Candy Kiss, but I also like the Flower Candy very much. The only Candy variant, with which I do not warm up so at all is unfortunately Candy Night and although I love chocolate, but on my skin, unfortunately, this note often appears rancid.
The original Candy, the most purist version, if you can even speak of purist with all that decadent caramel, is my favorite. Sweet yet classy. To bite into delicious caramel in any states of aggregation, I mean consistencies of course, and even now as I write this my mouth is watering. I love to apply it in the evening after a stressful (work) day to snuggle up, relax and fall asleep soothed, comforting, enveloping, mellow. Gourmand at it's best.
Every lover of this genre should have tested this treasure, as an insider tip I can not call him now, for that he is too popular, once and experienced its magic.
Many thanks for reading,
