Prada Candy Florale - summer in a bottle

Prada Candy Florale

Prada Candy Florale is a light summery take on Prada’s Candy line. Personally, I think it smells nothing like the first two Candy scents!
This is a nice feminine floral sweet perfume. I’ve been reaching for it often as the weather warms up. That would be for two reasons,  it only lasts about an hour on my skin, but the other because it’s become my first choice for a happy, wearable scent for most any occasion. I would describe this as a sweet skin scent, and one that is effortless and light enough for hot and humid summer days.

How Prada describes Candy Florale: Exciting floral frag inspired by imaginary flowers that smell like candy, or a bouquet of flowers standing on the counter of and Italian ice cream shop. Romantic powdery limoncello sorbet top note, peony heart note, base notes of benzoin, musk, caramel and honey.

Prada Candy Florale is nothing like the original Candy fragrance, which I find to be a heavy gourmand scent that is far too strong for my summer perfume preference. Light and refreshing, dainty and feminine is how I’d describe Candy Florale. While it doesn’t have great throw or lasting power, that’s a positive in my book, for hot weather scents.

 You can find Candy Florale at Sephora for $68 for 1.7oz edt or $88 for 2.7oz.
