Do you know that feeling when a fragrance smells so delicious that you just want to roll around in it? That you want to fill a tub with it and bathe in it? Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could just do that? Your skin probably wouldn’t be too happy if you did though, with all those skin-irritating ingredients and what not… And it would probably be kind of costly, too. But if money is not an issue then I have good news for you, because in March DKNY is launching its brand new DKNY Be Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau De Toilette Spray, a hydrating version of the iconic Be Delicious perfume that you can use all over your body and that doesn’t just smell nice but also nourishes and benefits the skin. So kind of like a BB cream, but then in the form of a fragrance. Very clever!
The bottle of the new DKNY Be Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau De Toilette Spray is, just like the regular Be Delicious perfume, shaped like an apple. DKNY did revamp the bottle a bit though, to make it a little more streamlined and ergonomic. But the perfume itself is still fresh apple green, just like the original. Preeeeetty*!

The DKNY Be Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau De Toilette Spray basically smells the same as the regular Be Delicious perfume, just a little more subtle. That means that you get a delicious blend of green apple with exotic floral accords and sensual woody accents. Think green apple, cucumber, grapefruit, magnolia, tuberose, rose, violet, sandal wood, white amber,… Yum!
The new DKNY Be Delicious Hydrating Eau De Toilette Spray is meant as an all-over body spray, so you can use it all over your body and use as much as you want. I personally like to use about ten spritzes so that I’m literally being wrapped in a cloud of Be Delicious. Normally I don’t spray perfume directly on my skin to avoid skin irritation, but DKNY says that the new Be Delicious Skin immediately hydrates the skin and makes it look more luminous and supple in the long run thanks to the special Apple Fusion complex and other beneficial ingredients in the formula like aloe vera and blackberry. The instructions tell you to use the eau de toilette twice a day for optimal results. And I agree, because the smell of the DKNY Be Delicious Skin is less intense than that of the regular perfume, so you really need to top it up during the day or else it will fade.
My final thoughts? If you don’t like subtle fragrances and refuse to apply more than a few spritzes in the morning you’re probably not going to like this lightweight eau de toilette. But if you’re a fan of the original DKNY Be Delicious fragrance and literally want to wrap yourself in its sweet apple scent from head to toe then the new DKNY Be Delicious Skin might be something for you. I will probably stick to my regular perfume until winter is over, but I think that the DKNY Be Delicious Skin will be just perfect for spring and summer!
The DKNY Be Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau De Toilette Spray will be available in March for 72 CHF (50 ml) and 100 CHF (100 ml).
What is your first impression of the upcoming DKNY Be Delicious Skin eau de toilette? Do you like the typical apple scent of Be Delicious?
