Prada Candy Kiss New Fragrance for Women Review (2016 fragrance):
Prada Candy Kiss perfume got launched in February 2016 as a flanker to the Prada Candy perfume collection which has playful gourmand scents like Prada Candy launched in year 2011, Prada Candy L’Eau launched in year 2013 and Prada Candy Florale that got launched in year 2014. The fragrance has been blended by Daniela Andrier. Prada Candy Kiss opens up with an inimitably soft unfolding of musk, like a fragrance of white cotton wrapped in luscious orange blossom and suave vanilla. It is beautiful musky oriental perfume which is sensuous, feminine, gorgeous and addicting.
The iconic lips on the perfume box showcase the enamoring and flirty facet of Candy’s personality.

My Experience with Prada Candy Kiss Perfume for women:
I haven’t been a great fan of Prada fragrances, however their Prada Candy line has been quite a hit. Though I’ve not tried the original Candy perfume, however I have tried Prada Candy L’eu and quite liked it at that time. Recently, got a chance to try a deluxe Prada Candy Kiss sample bottle and here goes my experience.
Experience with Notes: As classy as the bottle looks, so is the fragrance. I love the white casing of this bottle and how elegant it looks. Though its named Candy Kiss, the fragrance has nothing to do with Candy or anything sweet. It is a gorgeous floral musky fragrance with hints of vanilla in the background. I absolutely love the way it worked on my skin. The fragrance has musk staying put right from the initial spritz till the end, though the composition keeps on shifting in its journey from top notes to base notes. The initial notes have more of Orange blossom symphony blended with the musk, whereas in the dry down after around 15 minutes, I got more of vanilla-muskiness while the floral accords stay in the background. The fragrance is gorgeously balanced to make it a perfect feminine floral-musky scent.
I love its embrace of warm musk, while it continues to breathe the soft cool whiff of fresh summer flowers – its like giving a hot kiss to someone who has just taken a sip of chilled Duval-Leroy Fleur de Champagne Brut.
Season: I find it more of a night time appropriate fragrance for summer-fall season, however it is quite light wear, so you can wear it in day time as well.
Sillage and Longevity: The sillage of this perfume is quite good, around arm length radius. The staying power is just average i.e. around 3-4 hours.
Below is a quick summary of likes and dislikes I’ve felt about Prada Candy Kiss perfume
1) Sophisticated and Elegant packaging.
2) Gorgeous floral-musky fragrance – perfectly feminine, well balanced and plays beautifully on skin right from the initial blast till the dry down.
3) Good sillage.
4) Perfect for summer night wear.
1) Average staying power.
Overall: If you are a musk lover and want something feminine enough, then Prada Candy Kiss perfume is something that should find its place in your collection. Definitely recommended.
