As if it were not temptation enough, DKNY Fragrances has launched a vivacious reinterpretation of its classic Be Delicious Eau de Parfum, this time presented in a beautiful limited edition of the iconic apple-shaped vessel. Crowned with a crystal halo its effervescent blend of apples, exotic flowers and sensual woods, as imagined by renowned fragrance developer Trudi Loren, is reflected in myriad Swarovski sparkles. Be Delicious is a deluxe scent made for the dynamic modern woman who reflects the spirit and allure of the city—and it just so happens that this woman is a lot like the charismatic Ms Loren.
“Everyone understands the apple, whether it’s in terms of the story of Eve or the New York City icon,” Loren explains as she takes us through the original concept for Be Delicious. The fruity fragrance’s latest edition, however, delves further into what makes a city come alive: “There’s no place more sparkling than 5th Avenue—the lights on the buildings, the street lamp decorations, and, of course, the windows of the stores are amazing!”
For this crystallized adaptation, the signature Green Apple note still takes center stage, followed by top notes of Crisp Greens, creamy Magnolia and shimmering Yuzu. The lush middle notes are Muguet, Waterlily and Violet, with intense bottom notes of Musk, Sandalwood and Amberwood. However, presentation gets an extra touch of luxury with a faceted bottle topped by around 1,800 meticulously hand-applied Swarovski crystals. Each cap took twelve hours to embellish, which is why there are just fifty-five of the Be Delicious Deluxe Edition with Swarovski crystals available.
If you have a forthcoming anniversary or birthday—and even if you don’t—we recommend that you start dropping some very fruity gift hints, because this limited edition belongs on the best-dressed vanity tables.
