Golden Delicious description
DKNY’s Golden Delicious is all about naked temptation. It starts with the ultimate in sinful symbols: dark Mirabelle plums and Golden Delicious apples, with only a soft spray of orange flower water to convince you its intentions are something other than seductive. And like all temptresses, Golden Delicious knows it has you from the start, so it takes its time in letting these juicy top notes linger, with their weight holding the apples and plums close enough to pick from the tree.
But if the shiny skin of the fruit in the top doesn’t turn your head, Golden Delicious has plenty of other tricks up its sleeve to wear you down with. The heart is a deceptively demure blend of white rose and Casablanca lily. The floral touches are sheer and light; a perfect contrast to the fullness of the dark fruit. The bouquet of white flowers in the middle of this perfume is unashamed at being as feminine and romantic as possible, and Golden Delicious delights in tempting you in several different ways, as it dries down. If floral perfumes make you happiest, the rose and lily notes lazily drift and float around your head for ages, before the woody notes in the base make their dry impressions known.
The dry down slyly adds a sweet, powdery vanilla orchid note to the floral mix, and punctuates it with soft musk, muguet and teak wood for a slightly green and delicate ending. A rich, smooth sandalwood round outs Golden Delicious, to remind you of all the juicy sweetness that the fragrance started with.
DKNY’s Golden Delicious is a warm and sweetly sexy perfume with a mesmerizingly floral heart that will have your head in the clouds for a good long while, after its sweet, dark fruit and woods lure you into its charms. If you are looking for a white floral that has a sinful side as well, look no further. Golden Delicious is Snow White with a super shiny red apple of her own to show you.
