Ordinarily, I am the first to say that I really do not want to smell like a piece of fruit or a pudding – however delicious – so I was not predisposed to like DKNY Fragrance Delicious Delights (£37 each), the new trio of limited edition, sorbet-inspired fragrances in the DKNY Be Delicious range. However, these three – brought out just in time for Mother’s Day, next Sunday – turned out to be considerably more appealing than their sorbet-coloured bottles, and ice cream-featuring boxes, suggested. They are really quite grown-up scents – unlike some of their predecessors in the collection, which have had almost exclusively teen appeal.
Of the three, I particularly like the Fruity Rooty one (pictured on the right), which, although it has blackberry and mandarin in its top notes, seduced me with its elegant base notes of iris, musk and vanilla and floral heart. Silly name; sophisticated scent..
