Review: Prada Candy Florale
I'm going to offend a lot of people with this statement, but here goes: I don't like Prada Candy. It's like boring sugar water to me. Too sweet and nothing to liven it up. The Florale version gives it that extra something something to both liven it up and tone down the sugar, and this version is much more to my taste. It opens with a blast of clean florals - think freesia, lots of freesia. In the drydown, the florals fade into a clean musk and the base of the original Prada Candy comes through. It's very pleasant - a sort of clean vanilla effect. The lasting power is ok; I get about four hours of wear. So, if you're not a Candy fan, give this one a chance - it might surprise you.
