Prada Candy: new fragrance

A new mainstream perfume by Prada is always reason to perk up one's ears. The Prada line, masterminded by perfumer Daniela Andrier is full of elegant, sleek compositions that meld with the wearer's skin; modern, but not out there; restrained but not insipid; in fact some of the best no brainers for people with brains.

The latest seems incongruent going by the name only, being named Prada Candy (Odd decision! Imagine the Google searches!).

But the composition sounds rather promising all the same: elegant musks up top, benzoin resin in the lower range of notes (much like in their best-selling Infusion d'Iris scent) and a caramel drydown which probably is the reference point for the name. I hypothesize it will be meant as a skin scent, much like most in the line-up is (especially the lovely Prada L'Eau Ambrée) and not a tooth-aching gourmand.

The bottle reminds me of a coffee press pot for filtered coffee. Very Bodum!
Prada Candy will hit stores in August 2011.


  1. Yes, it does look like a coffee press.

  2. TFC,

    glad to see I wasn't the only one! :D

    *lol* coffee press seems fitting :-D

    I like the original Prada scent as well as L'Eau Ambrée, but this one doesn't sound like my cup of tea...or coffee ;-)
    Musks aren't my thing - unless it's something along the lines of Muscs Koublai Khan - & I don't think Prada will come up with a scent loaded with dirty muscs.

  4. C,

    they're going about how it's a gourmand oriental, which could be interested any which way one likes, I guess.
    I kinda think they're going for refined stuff re:musks. I wouldn't expect the Tide detergent kind or dryer sheets. Let's see!

  5. perfume depicts the personality of a person. Parada Candy is fantastic addition for all perfume lovers with musky, oriental and floral fragrance.....thanks for your blog
