The three fragrances each put a unique spin on the cult apple fragrance and feature ice-cream inspired names that include Fruity Rooty (lilac,) Dreamsicle (orange,) and Cool Swirl (green.) Fruity Rooty blends top notes of blackberry, mandarin and blackcurrant with heart notes of candied apple sorbet, rose petals and violet flower, and base notes of orris, vanilla and musk. The result is an understated and unusual sweet floral scent that dries to leave something a touch more sophisticated than you would imagine.
Dreamsicle opens with top notes of mandarin, raspberry and blackcurrant, contains heart notes of green apple, peach nectar and apricot sorbet, as well as base notes of cedarwood heart, sandalwood and vanilla. This is my favourite of all three as the citrus notes and sorbet inspiration combine to leave something that I want to cover myself in entirely; it's comforting and sweet without being overpowering - if you love orange scents then this will be your new favourite perfume. (It could be my fave of the spring season to date...)
Cool Swirl features top notes of blackcurrant, violet leaves and coconut water, leading to heart notes of magnolia, jasmine and pistachio sorbet. Base notes of heliotrope, musk and patchouli complete the fragrance to leave a subtle twist on the original apple scent I still completely adore. All three fragrances are housed in frosted glass bottles that showcase the purple, orange and green tinted juices within, topped with pretty pastel caps to complete the sorbet look.
If you're after a subtle spring scent and something a little bit different, or if you're already a fan of the DKNY Be Delicious franchise, you're looking in the right place. I thought these may be a little bit sweet for my liking (I ditest sweet scents or anything too sugary,) but the three scents are actually warm and understated while leaving a little something refreshing on the skin. It's hard to describe the feeling these provide, but you can definitely tell they've been inspired by sorbet - all I need now is a supply of tasty treats to accompany my new fragrance.
