Candy is hot and candy scents are even hotter. It seems that as long as it’s candy colored or candy scented it’s been on the top of the must have list this year. DKNY is just one of the fashion heavyweights who have jumped on board the candy express with Delicious Candy Apple fragrances. Like Mariah Carey’s candy fragrance line, DKNY has created a threesome of candy scents. The DKNY scents have been made and promoted with a candy apple theme. Donna Karan’s scented threesome is deliciously named Ripe Raspberry, Sweet Caramel and Juicy Berry.
The eau de parfum is gorgeously presented in apple shaped bottles of candy purple, candy red and candy green. Colors any self respecting sports car would be proud of – in other words racy. Racy is the perfect word for these candy scents that definitely target a young, sexy crowd. The purple pottle contains the magic Juicy Berry perfume that will appeal to those who enjoy a nice musky wood essence with fresh, fruity overtones. Sweet Caramel Candy Apple is the green bottled scent and definitely the sweetest of the three options with hints of vanilla and marshmallow – yummy! Ripe Raspberry Candy Apple is of course the red bottle containing a fresh spring flavor, or rather smell, making it the brightest and bubbliest of the candy apple bunch.
DKNY fashion says class and sophistication. Coupling a candy scented threesome of perfumes with the DKNY branding creates a scent that gives the impression of fresh sophistication. Young people looking for a classy fresh scent won’t have to worry about any flowery old undertones with these perfumes – they are all youth and sunshine and candy!
We all know there are certain foods (candy aphrodisiacs) for special moods and that includes romance. Some herbs, spices, sweets and other foods have been used for centuries, others not quite as long, but they share the distinction of creating feelings of well being, mild euphoria, affection, tenderness and dare I say, arousal. Some can be eaten straight up; others have been mixed in love potions. Others still are found as ingredients in some of our favorite foods and candy.
Since the time of the ancient Aztec Indians chocolate candy has been heralded as one of the most potent aphrodisiacs. This text won’t bother with the claimed or technical details of why because, well lots of other articles have and at the end of the day, if it’s been working for a few thousand years the proof is in the chocolate pudding really.
Another tried and true candy aphrodisiac is mint. The ancient Greeks, specifically Aristotle that lover of moderation above all, advised Alexander the Great not to let his soldiers drink mint tea while at war. He claimed that the aphrodisiac was too powerful and well, thousands of horny men on the battlefield… you get the drift. Does that mean chocolate starlight mints will give you more bang for your buck? Maybe!
Other edible aphrodisiacs which aren’t as much fun because they are not candy related are of course oysters, saffron and ginseng. Great non edible aphrodisiacs are exercise and testosterone. From a purely female perspective definite aphrodisiacs would have to include low lighting, cleanliness and adoration. These are all foods, virtues and candy aphrodisiacs that the mother of sensuality herself, Aphrodite, would surely approve of.
