"He's a sweet-talking sugar-coated candyman!"
"He's a sweet-talking sugar-coated candyman!"
Christina Aguilera - Candyman (2009)

Who This Candy here?
No, it's more like a box of macarons, contents: 3 pieces. On top lemon (so, like this icing, for which you mix powdered sugar with lemon juice), something like caramel and last but not least caramel.

But from the beginning.
Where was I?
Oh yeah, that's right! There WAS something!
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to one of the newest episodes, "Chaybukoshka and the Italian". This time it's actually new. It takes place in the spring of 2021, where Chaybukoshka reclaims her faithful companion for the very same. The big Candy L'Eau bottle is empty, so a new one is urgently needed, because like real macarons for some, the little Candyman is indispensable for Chaybukoshka, who is still carrying around her winter fat and is not (yet) unhappy enough to go on a serious diet, a perennial favorite that has actually been with her longer than Signor Il Herzensbrecher, more precisely: since 2016. And Madame Verfressovich-Chaybukoshka is not yet full, has not yet had enough, no.
It's spring, and she celebrates it every year with her Candyman. Lighthearted and easy.

And so it is today.
And today... she meets the other Candyman.
His beautiful curls blow-dried smooth, his hair freshly cut and shaved on the sides, he comes out of the post office, and although he's still wearing his surgical mask - and would win any doctor's game cosplay right off the bat - it's obvious at a glance:
Here we have a sweetie in front of us.
CANDYMAN!
Chaybukoshka sees him and.... almost runs him over with her wire bike, she is so overwhelmed.
Riding hands-free, listening to music, and absolutely oblivious, she arrives at the post office (to mail a swapped perfume, by the way, haha) and is just looking for a free spot for her trusty vehicle, her favorite bicycle Charly (pronounced Scharliieee, named after Charly Gaul), when he appears between two cars. Early enough to brake, but never early enough to prepare Chaybukoshka for her next heart attack.
"It's so funny how fate keeps throwing him at your feet!" she overhears a friend musing later that day. No, it isn't.
This day had started out so beautifully. The weather is great, spring-like, sunny, too cold for what Chaybukoshka is wearing, but still wonderful and light.
Chaybukoshka, wrapped in a delicate, imperceptible to anyone but herself, scent and protective cover of good cheer with macarons, all thanks to the Candyman.

The other Candyman like this, "You can ride a road bike hands-free? Sto cazo!" (I won't translate that, sorry.)
- "Mhmmmm. It's not much different than unicycling, at least on straight stretches."
"How are you?"
- "Tutto apposto, thank you!" (That's a LIE!)
"I'm glad to hear it! [Blah blah blah]... (Then silence. Chaybukoshka makes an effort to keep her composure and smile) You... What I wanted to say... I'm sorry I didn't respond to your invitation the other day. I'm sorry, I promised you and I owe you so much. We both know this wasn't about me helping you with your project. You just can't."
- (Chaybukoshka smiles half-convincingly, trying to summon back the good humor from earlier) "I see." (No, she doesn't. But what difference does it make?)

Signor, once again living up to his name today, spreads his arms and gives Chaybukoshka a kiss on her head(hair) raised high with the greatest of effort. He takes a deep breath that literally smells like goodbye. "You can do this. I have a lot of respect for you, and you're worth a lot more to me than that."

Seconds pass like minutes, minutes like hours. Chaybukoshka would have liked to capture this one moment and hold onto it a little longer.
But as it is, all good things come to an end. Candymans are not meant to last forever. But, when their paths do cross again, Chaybukoshka's heart will once again somersault with joy, skip and make her feel incredibly light, at least for a moment. And a moment can last a good four hours.

She goes home and puts the other Candyman in the closet.
Four hours this pleasure lasts(s). Nice to look at, too.
What remains to be said?
The flacon head, one may not tear it off out of sheer desperation, it is yet perfectly formed and beautiful, which looks a bit like a mushroom or an umbrella, is made better in the small flacon, because under the umbrella there, which is actually a lid, there is a spray button. With the big one, the construction is not sooo stable, at least it fell off more than once with the scatterbrained Chaybukoshka. Possibly because the bottle fell down once, she doesn't remember. She tries to forget and to conjure up the mood of the morning again.

"And it's, it's okay
Everything's on its way
And it's sunshine time
Lighthearted and free
And man is called man
Because he forgets
Because he represses
And because he raves and steels
Because he warms when he tells
And because he laughs
Because he lives
You miss!"
- Herbert Grönemeyer: Man (2002)

Until next spring and the next encounter with the Candyman!
Sorry, I mean of course: the Italian

Feel like 15 again.
This is my first review because this fragrance has a special story for me.

It's 2013, I'm 15 and I care a lot about my outfits and already match my perfumes to them. My favorite hobby is shopping and I love sweets (well, who doesn't, but with me it already took extreme proportions at times). Fortunately, everything has distributed well. ?

One day a friend brought the Prada Candy L'eau commercial to my attention and said it reminded her of me. At the time I thought she was referring to Léa Seydoux's passion for eating popcorn and cake, but today I recognize other parallels to me as well.

On our next shopping trip, we both tried Prada Candy. While it was too sweet for my friend, I was instantly in love. I had to have this perfume!

Since my pocket money was not enough, I wished for it for Christmas. I got: Prada Candy EDP. I was a little irritated because of the different color of the bottle, but I also liked the scent and so I wore my first Prada fragrance proudly on special occasions (or when I wanted to impress a certain boy) and forgot about the EDT version for the next few years.

Since last year I've been getting more involved with perfumes again, signed up to Parfumo and found that they are two different fragrances - with the EDT unfortunately being discontinued, which made me a bit sad.
Fortunately, there is it online yet to buy and now I can finally - after more than 7 years proud owner of the Prada Candy L'eau call me.

The fragrance I had almost forgotten. I find him somehow difficult to describe, which is perhaps also due to the fact that I am very inexperienced in matters of fragrance description.
If Prada Candy was a candy, it would probably be Lemon Cheesecake.
It starts citrusy and evolves to powdery sweet. Sillage is subtle. When I smell it I actually feel like I'm 15 again because I haven't smelled it since. Do I want to be 15 again? No. Was it an exciting time? Definitely!

I can't stand this. For me this is, basically, the "fruitchouli" version of Prada Candy.

Gone is the animalic benzoin creamy vanillic musky goodness of the original, and in the place of the original's understated sophistication and beauty is this generic patchouli/praline crap that's the basis of so many modern scents today, though I might add that I believe this trend to be, thankfully, coming to an end!

Flowerbomb,
La vie est Belle,
So Elixir,
Coco Mademoiselle,
Etc, I.E you get the idea.
(This genre is not my niche nor my forte.)

The best of the Prada Candy range, in my personal opinion, are the original and the "Kiss" variation - which ups the muskiness of the original to dizzying heights, with more nuanced floral notes and a removal of the citrus.
Adore.

Prada *Amber/ Sweet Pea*
I bought a decant of this perfume because I love sweet scents, but I wanted something that was a bit lighter to wear while I'm visiting my relatives over the holidays. Unfortunately, this is not at all what I was expecting. The most prominent notes in this fragrance to me are amber and sweet pea, with something vaguely sweet in the background. The longer you wear it, it does become a bit sweeter, but it doesn't smell at all like caramel. It is a nice scent and has grown on me a bit, I do not think it is at all the way it has been described or advertised.

The Delightful Surprise of Butterflies
I must admit, I fell to the bias of a name and never gave this a try either Prada Candy or Prada Candy L'Eau seems like it was going to be too sweet for me. Well surprise, surprise! This is a smooth powdery opening with a creamy, slightly soapy middle, akin to Dolce & Gabana's defunct "Sicily" but with out that same sickly sweet dry down that ruins the whole Sicily experience for me, personally. Prada Candy L'Eau remains ladylike, glimmering with young exuberance and yet supple, creamy smooth and a little spicy at times. A gorgeous Winter floral scent for every day into night wear that will be both memorable and yet, not overwhelming in its projection. It's been on my arm for about 6 hours and is still very noticeable, yet not too strong. This is not at all cloying as I might have imagined, nor is it childlike or heavy. The dry down is more floral than sweet and more clean musk than sticky brown caramel on me. By now it has melted into my skin and the sillage is about 3-5 inches (7.62 cm) radius off my skin. Pleasant, but not suffocating. Perfect for a night out on the town or an intimate dinner by candlelight. I am going to work through my sample before deciding whether I need this in a larger size, but I must say as someone who frequently finds mainstream fragrances to be overwhelming, I was totally delighted with this soft, feminine powdery creamy fresh scent- it was like opening a box of live butterflies and watching them fly into a clear blue sunny sky- utterly delightful and simply uplifting!

yummy
I tried Prada Candy a few times; try as I might, I couldn't smell a thing. So I scoffed at the idea of a l'eau version; how much lighter can a no scent perfume get? Well, I was proven wrong. This fragrance is much stronger, a nice fruity caramel on my skin. I can smell coconut too, but it must be something else in the composition causing such an effect. Longevity isn't all that great, maybe a couple of hours, 3 at most. But this is a light, noncloying fruity floral gourmand and smells of quality compared to other fragrances in the same genre.
