The venerated Prada label has introduced a new fragrance: Everybody, meet Prada Candy. Rounding out their fragrance collection which until now consisted of the Amber and Infusion lines, Prada Candy brings a pop of neon joviality to all the seriousness implied by resident scents such as Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger and L’Eau Ambree. Described as colorful and explosive and named for a “seductive and joyful girl running wild,” Candy delivers exactly what you would expect it to, namely, patisserie-inspired scents such as caramel and vanilla balanced with musky middle notes.
Presented in a trio of colors befitting a name such as Candy, the hot pink, tangerine and gold bottle says, “I’m young, fun and bold,” which, as it happens, is exactly what the Eau de Parfum inside exclaims. Be warned, though, Candy isn’t for everybody. If you’re looking for a new fragrance that’s serious with a drop of playful, this isn’t for you because Prada has bottled pure adult playfulness without a hint of irony. Less little-girl than you might imagine, Candy is more caramel cotton candy dressed up in Louboutin’s and Cartier than strawberry ice cream and pink hair ribbons.
Available exclusively at Neiman Marcus, you can also find Candy Shower Gel and Body Lotion. Visit www.neimanmarcus.com for more information.
