I thought the opening was too strong and very alcoholic almost medicinal but I waited, walked around, and finally got around to discovering this gorgeous gourmand. It's not an Oriental vanilla as it's classified on here; at least not for me.
Makes a good Christmas gift and can be worn as your holiday party perfume. It’s not exactly sophisticated, but it’s fun, flirty and feels like a more grown up version of something I’d wear as a teenager or in my early 20’s, which is what I think Prada was going for. A clean sweet scent, I only sprayed it once on my wrist so I didn't expect much but for me it was difficult trying to smell this as it changed really quickly and pretty much faded after a couple of hours.
Not bad, not offensive but a bit unpredictable in my opinion, was not expecting the faint initial caramel to leave so quickly, not what I was expecting from something named "Candy".
This is so easy to wear that I think any girl of any age can wear it from about 13 to 90!
This is a loveable and absolutely heavenly little perfume.
16-year-old me thought that this perfume brings so much class and elegance to me.
It is quite a "sexy" scent, because of the musk in it, but also an "edible" one because of the creamy vanilla and caramel combination in it.
The whole thing is a soft powdery cosmetic meets pastry type of scent that stays close to the skin, smells very good and lasts a long time.
The first spritz is a caramel scent that reminds you of caramel candy or European pastry.
The sweet milky amber is caramel that also has a kind of cacao (chocolate) or coconut scent.
This has a dessert type of aroma as opposed to sugary candy or cotton candy.
This is definitely a fragrance as the name itself says sweet, very sweet, but it is by no means obvious and trivial different from many perfumes in commerce sweet and not very original!
