Prada’s Candy perfume was introduced in 2011. In April 2013, the style machine launched an adapted version which was called Prada Candy L’Eau. The scent is signed by perfumer Daniela Andrier, as is the original. Candy is a light, playful and seductive perfume which becomes modified with small specs of flowers, and in particular — citruses.
Upon the opening, the air is tickled with the sparkles from various Italian citruses. Adding complimentary aspects of the floral heart of sweet pea. The base is signature warm and gourmand, composed of benzoin, white musk and caramel.
Lea Seydoux, a French actress, has been the face of Prada Candy’s advertising campaign. Perhaps you’ve come across the promotional video, which was directed by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola.
Daniela (Roche) Andrier is the perfumer focusing on Candy’s scent, as in being “the nose” behind the perfume.
Prada Candy Perfume Review: The Packaging
The box that Prada’s Candy perfume comes in a soft pink rectangular box. Although there isn’t much flair to the box’s design, it does indeed have some subtle notes of elegance and detail in the raised print and color contrasting going on with the pink and black. The bottle itself is a reminder of retro home fashion. A cylindrical slender clear bottle complimenting the pink hue of the perfume is topped off with a dome-shaped cap and depressor.
