It does seem like an eternity to me since I've last posted something around here. But fear not, my midterms will soon be over and I can start breathing again, before the finals come around of course. Le me know if you can relate -_-
In today's post I wanted to introduce you to a new perfume idea: for that special someone, or for yourself (as a gift for going through those exams). For the record, I've been drooling over the original Prada Candy Perfume for about a year and a half now yet could never buy it because my boyfriend (although he likes the scent) is a bit allergic to it. Nothing deadly but his nose gets runny and he sneezes a lot so le sigh.. I had to forget about it.
However, they recently came out with two similar scents of the Prada Candy perfume : a more floral one (my mom's favorite) and a lighter version of the original called Prada Candy L'Eau. Guess what...my bf had no negative reaction to this one!! And I actually prefer it to the original. Now I did not end up buying it, my bf did as a present for me. Ladies, a piece of advice: If you want to buy perfume, make a man go get it for you. I don't know what he did or said, but the saleswoman went absolutely over the top and gave him over 8 samples and 4 samples of men perfumes. He gave me a huge box that apparently, the lady had trouble closing becuase it was so full. I posted a picture of that beautiful sight on my twitter page - just in case you want to have the same reaction I did, and it was O_O.
So long story short, I am so in love with this fragrance. And it's a good thing I am because the samples and the two bottles will last me ow about 50 years I would say. The main notes of this perfume (according to my nose) are caramel, honey, sweat pea and a small touch of citrus. It is quite sweet but not at all nauseating or girly - I would say it is a very feminine and sophisticated sweet. It is not as strong as the original so you can't go wrong with spritzing ''more than usual'' - you will not knock out everyone around you. It is appropriate for day and evening wear and OMG do guys ever like this scent. I was complimented on it 12 times in the first week I started wearing it. I mean come on. What perfume actually does that? None - right. Except maybe Black XS which is my signature scent but hey, Prada darling - you are doing it right. Have you smelled this perfume? P.S. Isn't that tiny bottle just ADORABLE!!?? :O
