Sugared apples were inspiration for the latest collection of fragrances by Donna Karan, who is taking us back to our childhood with these editions, while playing with colours and attracting us with scents of sweet caramel, ripe raspberries and juicy currant.

Caramel, raspberries and currant are the main theme of DKNY Delicious Candy Apples, which can be expected on the market in February 2010. The fun collection is available in limited number, in red, violet and green flacons (50 ml EDP each).

Sweet Caramel is a sweet, tasty, simple fragrance created of sugared blend of fruit, flowers and candies to be a true challenge for all those you like sweets. A wonderful union of apple and pear in top notes with marshmallow takes us to a heart and blends with jasmine blossom which flirts with violet and lily wrapped in green freshness. A base incorporates creamy caramel, soft vanilla and cream which will please your wish for candies.

From the first sniff of the bottle I thought this was a bit too sweet , wasn't sure at first spray thought it might be a bit sickly, but just wait for the dry down! OMG this is beautiful! On the skin this is soft and sweet, I can detect fresh crisp apple and a mix of light caramel and delicate spring blossoms. My new favorite!

Edit:lasts well, projects moderately, absolutely love it!!

First off, I've got to say this wasn't what I was expecting. Sweet caramel? Err..not really.
The top notes give me a strong apple with a touch of pear and rose mallow. The combination is fruity, fresh, clean, slightly tart, and slightly sweet. The heart is a grassy shampoo floral, and it's not one to take lightly. To me this is the strongest part of the whole fragrance along with the apple note in the top. The base is a very light vanilla and caramel. A little bit of a let down to me personally.
I like this fragrance, it's alright in it's apple shampooish way. Still, I find myself always layering it to make this the gourmand I really wanted it to be. My fave one to layer this with is chocolovers by aquolina to make it smell like those flippin sweet, chocolate-caramel covered apples from the rocky mountain candy company. I also think a simple caramel or even a marshmallow or vanilla is good at sweetening this up. Just a thought.
Whether you like it plain or layered sweet caramel has it's options :).

This is gorgeous! So glad I discovered this before it was too late to buy (it's now sold out on the website I bought it from, I doubt it will return). It's light & fresh, yet sweet & floral, & it all combines beautifully. The caramel, marshmallow, & green notes just work incredibly well. This is a one of a kind fragrance, the best from DKNY.

Absolutely LOVE this one. Unfortunately I discovered it too late: they stopped making it :( Can anyone give me a tip on a similar fragrance to try out instead? I've been looking for a "replacement" for some time now but most sweet perfumes are too sweet like Prada candy or Aquolina. Thanks.

Sorry to say that this one disappointed me. It was a blind purchase online prompted by the good reviews I've read.
Unfortunately on me it smells of apples and nothing else. Just apples. Possibly a tiny bit of sweet caramel on my skin. One hour later it's all gone.
Maybe there's something wrong with the bottle I received. Maybe it's my higher-than-average skin temperature. Maybe it's this hot early summer we've been getting here in southern china. I don't know.
I'll try it in cooler weather and see if it turns out better.

now that's what you call a DELICIOUS perfume
the apple toffee bottle is just SUPER CUTE it gives me sugar craving everytime I look at it
there is something about the notes....each one is in its right order & in synchronization with each other
unlike other perfumes where u feel like the notes are fighting with each other & sometimes that ends bad
SWEET-FLORAL-FRUITY-CARAMEL
Cheerful uplifting gives u happy energy & reminds me of a very happy memory
nicely done Donna Karan

Very refreshing , and not too many apples in that nicely made scent. I don't get much caramel at first, but the base is definitely not as crisp as the top notes. I find it to be an easy going fun to wear scent., not very complex yet very attractive.

just received this perfume in the mail today and i really like it. the apple really stands out in the scent, but i do like that. my boyfriend also liked the smell of the scent. it is sweet and a fruity and a bit floral. after the set in, you can smell the apple and caramel the most in my opinion. i would buy this again.

Me encanta! lo compre a ciegas, solo guiandome un poco por lo que decian aqui, y fue un exito. Es un perfume de diario que no molestara a nadie. Es de esos perfumes suaves y calidos, con un toque acido que no deja empalagarte. Es una lastima lo poco que dura en la piel, me dura unas 3 horas, sin embargo lo reaplico porque me encanta. Ojo!!! no lo uses en una fiesta o lugar donde quieras llamar la atencion! demasiado suave e intimo para eso.

I love this. I get a sweet, crisp apple with just the smallest hint of caramel. It's so fresh and gourmand at the same time.

I am getting the apple, pear and vanilla - very green, refreshing and uplifting. I'm not really getting any caramel at all though...!!! Once it dries down I then start to smell the violet which I am completely happy with. It's a shame this are not being made any longer as I find this would be perfect for a summer's day. Nothing too complex just a fruity fresh happy inoffensive scent!

I just smell lots of flowers and green. That's it unfortunately! No caramel, no apple, no vanilla; nothing sweet at all. If you like sweet, gourment or really fruity scents, you should not waste your money on that or you'll be totay disappointed!

This is the Best DKNY Fragrance EVER!!!

I truly love this perfume. It is not a tart or sour apple scent like the Be Delicious, it is so much better. It's a delicate creamy marshmallow, vanilla, violet, jasmine, Braeburn apple, sweet gourmand, its dry down is sensual.

Does anyone know of a perfume that is truly comparable???

For some reason it's my favourite perfume for now. I ususally hate sweet perfume but surprisingly I love this scent.

Sadly it has been discontinued already. I wish I can have another bottle.

I usually don't wear "sweet" scents because they are too strong for me, however; this one I can wear because it is fresh and sweet but not too sweet. Love this one and I often wear it maybe once a week or so...

LOVE this scent..out of all my fragranes i own this is by far one of my top picks for spring and summer for sure..i love how it mixes fresh tart granny smith apples with vanilla and caramel..i really enjoyed the original be delcious but after trying this one i realize what the original was missing it is this vanilla and caramel mix with the fresh green apple..its perfect thats all i can say..and im not much on really sweet perfumes only a short few and to me this one is not overly sweet on me its more sour with a tinge of sweet....PERFECT

Opens very fresh, like the original Be Delicious, with the characteristic apple smell.
But after a few minutes, it becomes more sweet. The caramel and the vanilla notes are amazing in this one... So yummy!
I was expecting something sickening, but this is very good! A perfect balance between sweet and fresh! Can't wait to try the others from the Delicious Candy Apples collection!

Although I am somewhat sick of the numerous versions of DKNY Be Delicious, DKNY Sweet Caramel is a nice interpretation which is thankfully not as tarty or sickeningly sweet as one would expect.

With the scent being driven by a strong presence of caramel and vanilla, this fragrance reminds me of apple crumble with a serve of whipped cream.

There is a slight sharpness with the apple note, however in this particular case it works in unison with the pretty sweet notes. This fragrance isn't as fresh as the original, it is much richer in its approach.

In terms of lasting power, DKNY Sweet Caramel is the best out of the three, lasting well over 8 hours. The combined longevity and the overall scent, makes this fragrance very appealing, especially as a gift for young girls.

I wouldn't call this a complete replicate of the scent of a toffee apple like some are expecting, this is more dessert-like, syrupy almost. It is definitely for those with a sweet-tooth.

Those that love the original Be Delicious may or may not love this fragrance, it really depends on their tolerance for sweet scents and gourmands.

First test on a gormand scent for me. I have believed gormand perfumes would not be something for me and avoid them until now.

I liked this candy green apple. Maybe because it was't as sweet and caramel as I expected ... rather refreshing. But yes, it's sweeter than the original green if I compare those two... and I prefere this one.

I'll have to try another gormand for experienced this category better.

This one resembles Be Delicious, but it's Be Delicious' chemical counterpart. Chemical green apple. I'm surprised it's a floral fruity gourmand as well, as I didn't detect any caramel. This collection is utterly disappointing.

Goodness, I'm not quite sure what to make of this scent! I love the notes, and I agree with others who say that it's not very strong,.. So my wish for it is that it were stronger, to up-it on the gourmand/candy notes, and to tone it down on the green apple,.. that's what is making it seem so light & fresh. For being a so-called 'gourmand' scent, it's too fresh, in my opinion. I still really like it, and I find myself coming back for more, but for the WRONG reason: because it's simply just not strong enough. :/

It is a nice perfume, nothing special but not bad. It somehow smells clean, but in a fruity, shampoo way. You can mainly sense green apples and jasmine later on and that is about it.

I expected sweet caramel apple but I found green apple green apple and ... green apple. Nice scent, don't get me wrong, but where is the caramel? Too fresh, it's missing the point for me.

I tried both raspberry one and this one on different wrists yesterday. Well, this one was stronger than raspberry as it was lingering while raspberry was hardly noticable. However, I can't say whether it is stronger than the original as I couldnt compare them.
Caramel Apple smells a lot like the original, just much sweeter, more candyish. It reminded me of Vera Wang Glam Princess for some reason.It is a candy-gourmand, not a warm caramel-vanilla gourmand you might expect. Actually it didnt even dry drown to the vanilla. The green apple note was there all the time though. I do not like the original either but if I had to choose between the two, I would choose this one.
The bottle is very cheapy looking with that plastic top (doesnt look nice in reality)...The original bottle is much nicer.

ALSO, the notes which were listed on the stand in the store were different from the ones listed here. I think notes of cake and marshmallow were written on the stand. Well it makes it even more disappointing then ,as this Apple is certainly not creamy!

DKNY Carmel Apple is a huge disappointment. I enjoyed the original and Fresh Blossom so well that I ran out and bought all three....at full price (and I rarely do that!). I can agree with the other reviews that advised to save your money! If you're going to buy a green apple, just go with the original. This one is a lighter, more subtle version of the original even though the notes say otherwise. It is slightly more floral than the original and the carmel and vanilla drydown didn't even develop on my skin. I was flabbergasted by that one..the whole idea is that this is supposed to be chock full of sinfully decadent carmel goodness! ARRRGGG! I FEEL CHEATED,HOODWINKED, & LED ASTRAY!

Maybe they should have thrown in some almonds or marzipan or fig in this one to make it the true gourmand that I hoped for when I thought about what a carmel apple smells like. I'm not saying it's a bad fragrance, just that it wasn't what was advertised--I'll finish my bottle like a good perfumista, but I will fume everytime I wear it. Poor sillage and lasting power to boot. MEH! Rated 3 out of 10 for being a weak duplicate.

Ok...bought this a few weeks ago at the Navy Exchange in San Diego before it was released to the public. Smells very similar to the original to me. Has the same sharpness and I only smell the sweetness - the caramel and marshmallow - upon dry down. Still, I like it and think it's perfect for spring. Four stars!

nice...but very soft and light...not very fruity or sweet...just a summery soft light scent in the dead of winter.got the rasberry one too...i even think that berry one has more punch than this. so, im disappointed with this one...its a little weak...berry one is better if u compare but, this is wearable..for a light warm day.
