Sweet Spot – 4 Recommended Scents
Feeling like indulging in something sweet? No, it’s not dessert; it’s perfume! Sweet scents have been around for ever. Even the Ancient Egyptian queen, Cleopatra, who bathed in ass’s milk and spices, was after a sweet aroma. Thankfully, we don’t have to go to such lengths today, we can simply grab a bottle and spray it on and we have four of our newest and most popular sweet scents reviewed right here.
Be Delicious was the second fragrance to be released in the Delicious family. Like the original, it is apple-inspired, this time combined with grapefruit, cucumber, and magnolia, with a woody base of sandalwood and amber, giving it a sweet and youthful air that is light and fresh. It shares the apple-shaped bottle of its sister fragrance, this time in apple green with a chrome topper, and is a sweet but sophisticated scent.
Released in 2014, Candy Florale by Prada is the third in the Candy line and is a fruity floral scent with musk which gives it depth. With limoncello and peony over the honey, caramel and musk scents, this is sweet but with an earthy quality which lasts a long time and smells good enough to eat. The bottle echoes its siblings but in powder pink and gold with white detailing.
This spicy oriental number gets its sweetness from citrus fruits like grapefruit and mandarin, and florals, like freesia and Chinese rhododendron, as well as the amber in the base. Released in 2000, Intuition also contains green notes which keep it fresh and put you in mind of a summer garden. With a very good reputation for staying power, this is a good one for an all-day occasion.
Launched in 2019, Bye Bye Blues, by Juicy Couture is a fresh and aquatic fragrance with a sweetness that comes from floral and fruity notes in its heart as well as its woody, powdery base notes. Like the rest of the Juicy Couture family, this one comes in a square bottle, this time in a fresh blue, and is topped by the same gold crown as the rest of the collection.
Sweet fragrances can still give many different effects and impressions, from sweet and innocent to sweet and sophisticated or even sweet but scary! So have a sniff at some others, you might just find something you love.
