Perfect gourmand scent of caramel, vanilla and benzoin
by Sarah on Jun 23, 2017
I bought a dozen samples back in 2014. Candy is a clear winner. It is a perfect gourmand scent of caramel, vanilla and benzoin. I have blind bought dozens of different fragrances searching for the perfect gourmand caramel perfume. Most smell burnt, synthetic or add too much raspberry/berry notes. Candy is smooth, simple and a little bit more mature than most gourmand caramel fragrances. It is also quite unique. I have bought a fair few bottles of this since that sample. For me, Prada Candy and Jessica Simpson Fancy are my favourites! If I had to pick between the two I would choose Fancy as it has a wider more interesting range of notes for me including a divine dry down.

I received this product as a sample and I will definitely buy the big one. I love the scent.

This is a very nice perfume. Unfortunately it is a bit tainted as an old lady perfume because when I tried the sample all I could envision was my great aunt. This was her signature and I didn't know it. That being said, she was a very classy lady who wore lipstick everyday and made sure her outfit was perfect when going out.

A sweet sophisticated caramel vanilla would be the best way to describe this scent. The only drawback is it doesn't last as long as I would like but the projection makes up for it.
Good, but not great

For a caramel fragrance, it seems to be lacking the sticky sweet note that I expect from caramel. This one seems more dry to me...probably due to the musk and powdery notes. If you want a gourmand fragrance that doesn't make you smell like a candy store, this would be perfect. It is a sophisticated caramel.
I don't get it...
by Mary Carole on Feb 17, 2017
Based on the name and the many reviews I've read in regards to this fragrance I was expected a sweet candy styled scent but instead of sweet I got an overwhelming baby powder fragrance that I couldn't get off quick enough. I don't get it, must be my body chemistry...

This is nice and simple
by linaya on Sep 16, 2016
The notes of this fragrance themselves might have worked, but the ratios are WAY off. Upon first spritz, I immediately get assaulted with a funeral home scent, then it drydowns to a shockingly sweet carmel note, and finishes with a musky candy scent. My body chemistry does not like this.

I'm not a huge fan of this fragrance. I've worn it several times to really give it a fair try, and to me it just smells like watered down cream soda. That's what I always think of when I wear it.

This perfume reminds me of a slightly updated version of Pink Sugar.

This is a nice warm scent to me. Its not anything spectacular but its nice if your looking for a warm vanilla scent

Sweet but not cloying. I think it fits young people better.

I love vanilla scents and this is no exception. Sweet vanilla and some amber and musk to tone down the sweetness. Very nice!

I've always loved sweet musky fragrances. This is a little too light but I'll definitely wear it when I'm around family that is sensitive to strong fragrances. For some reason I can't place the caramel but I figure its just the sweet smell I'm smelling.
by Alicia on Mar 22, 2016
With such a name as Candy I expected something very sweet, as Aquolina Pink Sugar. Fortunately it is not the case. Candy is a sophisticated gourmand, not cloying in any way, but with a radiance all of its own. The lasting power could be improved. Otherwise it is a fragrance for most occasions and all ages.

Poor. Not pleasant.
by Nicole on Dec 20, 2015
I was so impressed by this perfume I had to purchase a larger bottle, at first it's very soft and there's like an (after scent) that is just so sweet and seductive! This is my fiancés favorite!
Too much Musk...
by ASHLEY on Dec 17, 2015
This scent would be a lot nicer without the musk...The Musk is too much.

The name matches this fragrance perfectly! If you like really sweet scents, you may want to give this a try. It's not a bad fragrance, but it's too sweet for my preference. One spray was already too much.
by Kadaffi on Aug 24, 2015
I enjoy sweet scents but this was nothing special to me. I love the sweetness as it opens, but then I get this other scent I can't put my finger on which just ruined it for me. The dry down is nothing special either as it just reminded of of scents I've smelt a thousand times before.
by Tamara on Jul 29, 2015
Very happy! It does, at first, smell like cotton candy, but within about a minute it calmed down to a sweet, sensual smell. It is very light and not overpowering, perfect for daytime or happy hour. If it was a little stronger and lasted longer I would say perfect for nighttime. However, as long as I keep a small travel bottle in my purse, I would definitely wear this with a sexy cocktail dress! Maybe a bright color to go with this bright scent!
by Laura on Jun 26, 2015
I noticed the 3 promised notes that stayed for the duration: caramel, benzoin, and musk which all made for a "darker" caramel fragrance (not a sweet, overly-sugary scent), however the 'caramel-sweetness' does shine on top. This one isn't as "bright" as Bonbon which has some fruit added to the mix to lighten it up. I do get a bit of a strange sour note that I don't love - perhaps the benzoin. Also, the sillage isn't great and I keep going to my wrist to remind myself that it's there.
by Nazia on Jun 9, 2015
The first sweet scent I ever liked :) Sweet, caramel lusciousness - with maybe a sense of some floral something at the start. Incredibly long lasting, and great projection - was getting whiffs of this for 4 hours or so from just rubbing some on from a paper strip. Yep, just a paper strip. Honestly, this smells just like Serge Lutens' Un Bois Vanille, which is much more expensive, so if you're eyeing that one, save some money and get this instead :D
by Jade on Jan 26, 2015
Holy caramel batman. This was was way to sweet at first but then it really mellowed out. It became such a nice salty caramel that was far from over powering. In fact I wish it was just a tad stronger. I would wear this one at night ladies.
cotton candy in a bottle
by Brenda on Jan 23, 2015
When I first spritzed this on, it smelled like cotton candy. It did settle down quickly but wasn't interesting enough for me to forgive the cotton candy beginning. Guess I'm just not a prada gal.
Sweet, sensuous, not overpowering
by Beverly on Nov 15, 2014
You have to be a fan of sweet smelling perfumes to like this, if you are, you will definitely add this to your colection. A nice floral to wear everyday around people who don't like strong smelling perfumes, on a plane, a train, in the office, wonderfully soft and sensual.
by Miriam on Oct 18, 2014
This is one of the best fragrances I've tried. It's really sweet but still very unique and memorable. It lasts for a long time on me and it's perfect in sillage, not to strong but still noticeable.
WAY floral on me
by Carrie on Jul 9, 2014
When I think of candy, I don't think floral but this one smelled straight up floral on me. I really do not like it
Smells like water, SO WEAK
by Bridgette on Jun 15, 2014
I can barely smell this. I've squirted it heavy like 3 different times just to be sure it isn't me, and I can BARELY smell it. It smells like what a prada bottle may smell like after being washed out by water, it's that weak. OR, maybe this is the one perfume out of like 150 that my nose can not grasp at all. It doesn't smell bad, I just can't really grasp the scent..
grown-up but still girly
by VerbenaLuvvr on May 28, 2014
The grown-up sister of Candy's cotton candy scent. I really liked this fun fragrance--and so did my husband, who kept nuzzling my neck!
by Adrienne on May 23, 2014
It's ok. Honestly, I like the caramel notes in La Via Belle.
Playful & sexy
by Elaine on Apr 5, 2014
This is one of the best perfumes out there. It's not overly floral which I find a lot of perfumes out there to be. It's kind of fruity but very sexy, but with a hint of playfulness. It's the perfect signature fragrance.
by Claudette on Jan 20, 2014
I found this to be a light, somewhat sweet fragrance, like candy. I liked it but it didn't last very long. Didn't seem to go through the 3 fragrance notes. Seemed there might be two.
by Dawn on Nov 26, 2013
I love sweet scents. Im not a fan of perfumes that smell too ... well perfumey and Prada Candy is definitely that scent its sweet but not overwhelming and has mild aftertones
by diana on May 13, 2013
A very sweet quite heavy perfume would be better suited for night wear quite strong so not a lot need lasts well
