The house Prada is launching a new fragrance in February 2016. Prada Candy Kiss belongs to the collection of playful gourmand scents Prada Candy, which includes the original from 2011, Prada Candy L'Eau from 2013 and Prada Candy Florale from 2014. In 2015, the Candy Kiss Collection was introduced, consisting of the three original scents in practical mini bottles of 20 ml.

Prada Candy Kiss, the new fragrance, channels the addictive nature of the Candy composition and enhances its characteristic scent of musk. Inspired by obsession and repetition, Prada Candy Kiss is designed to re-activate emotions and impressions. It evolved from the idea of creating a loop of sensations out of a single signature note wrapped around the body.Musk in its signature purity is omnipresent in the composition; from the upper notes to the base. It evokes delicate white cotton in a sensual fragrant cloud, enriched with uplifting notes of vanilla and orange blossom. The fragrance is developed by Daniela (Roche) Andrier.

The face of the campaign shot by Steven Meisel is model Lexi Boling. The fragrance will be available in bottles of 30, 50 and 80 ml.

Prada Candy Kiss Fragrance Reviews

I was at the perfume counter smelling new (to me) scents. I'm not sure what made me smell this. But I thought wow this is nice, a bit sweet, a bit fresh. Nothing ground breaking, but nothing so generic either. I ended up spraying this and another on my skin. I thought it was going to be a love affair.

Alas when I sprayed it on today, wearing it as I wear all my perfumes....I was hit with a headache and slight nausea. I have never had a reaction like this to a perfume, except when I was little and would smell the in your face sweetness of Sand and Sable that others wore. Never have I worn something that gave this affect.

If I could have gone home and taken a bath to scrub this off, I would. It's crazy though. By itself even if I smell my arm, I think it is such a pretty scent but for some reason I cannot wear this at all. So glad I got this from a reputable shop so I can return it. I am sad I turned out this way.

I read enough negative reviews about this that I needed to test it multiple times to be certain my nose wasn't deceiving me. I'm guessing the negatives are due to the fact that this has nothing at all in common with the original Candy. So why not name it something else entirely??? Who knows, but lucky for me, I didn't give up.

Each time I put this on I thought, 'Oh, I am soooo in love!!' But it took me a while to fully identify why. However, after a few go-rounds, I believe it is the fact that it projects so well as a musk. I've loved musk since I was a girl, albeit, my preference has always leaned toward the more animalic, natural types of musks.

This however, is the modern, clean version, but when it's blended with orange blossom, on the right skin, this baby blooms brilliantly. The longevity is out of this world, going for at least 12 hours. I'm not going to say this is a delicate or shy flower by any stretch of the imagination. This has presence and depth and it does evolve with time to become something that perfectly compliments my femininity. I highly recommend giving it a fair trial. Yes, there's a touch of sweetness, but I wouldn't call it the candy bit, more the kiss.

I adore this fragrance!

It smells so clean and cosy like freshly washed bedding that's just come out of the tumble dryer. This is how Estee Lauder's White Linen should have smelt if it were made in this century.

I'm a guy and I wear this and other guys compliment me on how amazing it smells.

Instant love for me: musky, sweet, yum. Husband says it smells of the stuff they put into urinals to mask the smell. Pah!
Will definitely buy.
Projection moderate
Staying power average (4hrs)
Smell (for musk lovers) 10/10
Reminded me of Korres Iris/Lily of the valley/cotton which is out of production

For my birthday my mother bought me Sephora's perfume sampler and it came with 0.05 oz of this. On me it is super sweet and powdery. Almost headache sweet... I did enjoy it, but it is not for me. I feel like this perfume would be best for a playful young-spirited 50+ person.

Instant headache. I don't know why, but this really got under my skin in a bad way. I like sweet scents and I like vanilla, but even though this fits both bills it didn't deliver. It smelled very synthetic and honestly kind of cheap to me (the same quality that gives me a headache in BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar). If you're a fan of Prada's scents you'll probably like this one, but it wasn't really anything special for me.

It's a very soft, gentle, cozy and fluffy scent that evokes powdery, warm softness and an abstract floral touch that one knows from Flower by Kenzo range.

Prada is softer and calmer than Kenzo, but still shares the character, and reminds me the most of Flower Essentielle.

I have a sample and a hand cream that is simply delicious.
I've tried it both in Spring and Autumn and it works beautifully then.
Candy Kiss is a very likeable composition, well made.
I only wish it was a bit more long lasting.
On my skin it is detectable for about 4 hours.

I like prada candy,l'eau and florale very much so I was waiting for kiss to become available on shelves,since I like candy family and all three notes listed for kiss,I was sure I'm gonna like it..finally it arrived.I remember the moment I sprayed it on a paper strip.it was such a big dissapointment for me.I can't say that why exactly I disliked it.maybe because it was nothing like it's family members or because it wasn't sweet.I thought it even doesn't smell like a perfume!only thing I could detect was musk and not even a good musk..it was like 30% animalic musk+ 70% soapy musk+a hint of non sweet powder.it was faint,cold and tasteless
A week ago,there was a big discount on Hiland,a perfume mall in my town,I was walking and deciding which perfumes I want to buy.I decided to try some other perfumes that aren't among my wantlist to relax my mind,so I sprayed candy kiss on a paper.oh,again that nondescript nonsense.sprayed it on my wrist and passed it to try others.after half an hour I felt a heavenly smell is wafting from my hand.it was so pretty and simple that didn't look like a perfume.it was like an angel's kiss.I was shocked to see it's prada kiss
I have nothing like it in my collection.it's a very clean scent but not a typical clean scent.I find most clean scents soulless and boring,or sharp and washing product like.prada candy kiss is a very clean soft powdered scent+a very delicate sweetness+soft fluffy marshmallowy vanilla...it's soft,light,feminine,classy and super pretty.it's bottle reflects it's scent very well.a simple but also unique and chic bottle,clear and transparent,clean and white with a touch of adorable sweet pink,very light but not faint.it's longlasting,stays on my skin for +7 hours with soft to moderate sillage.totally soft and inoffensive also noticeable
It's strange to call it oriental vanilla but if not,I don't know what else could it be.I think after fruitchouli and gourmand era,new generation of perfumes are soft powdery ones and prada candy kiss is one of the bests in this category
Although it's a very simple scent,I believe it's a masterpiece.it's ageless and timeless.very likable,wearable and versatile.can be used in office,meetings,dates,even a great bride scent..it's signature worthy
That day I bought it,though it wasn't in my list and it's rather expensive.I bought a 2.5 Oz bottle for 85$ in a big discount.stll I'm very happy with this buy
If you're looking for a perfume which is light but not faint and week,inoffensive but not boring,clean but not estril,simple but not generic,very classy but not showuppy and very feminine but not overly sweet or overly flowery..or if you're interested in a soft clean,alluring,sweet fluffy cloud to surround you wherever you go,give it a try and make sure to give it some time and also try it on skin.skin's warmth gives it life

Smells like soap on the first spray which makes it a huge turn off on buyers. I got a complimentary bottle and just keep it. Just today, i tried it once more and the soap smell evolves into a magical burst of floral notes. Soft but alluring. Will buy a big bottle next time... First impressions never last....This is a great buy!!!

This is a "comforting everybody " scent, because it's so Soft and not so sharp at all that give me a headache ( i'm a kind of girl whose sensitve nose can't bear strong scent @@ but you shouldn't think that soft perfume means poor longevity, which was my misunderstanding about perfumes. Although in majority of cases, this opinion is quite right. However, Prada Candy Kiss's longevity is Super long lasting. I sprayed 3 times at my wrist at 1pm, and now i still can smell it (it's 10pm in my country ). This scent is so sweet, reminding me of Prada Florale ( Both are more floral than two others ) ^_^

I received a deluxe mini of this as a free bonus from Ulta recently and had literally no expectations. Mind blown - I adore this. I get a fresh, soft scent that is just perfection. Vanilla and orange blossom are two of my favorite notes and those come through the most for me (orange blossom is most prominent). Musk sometimes goes crazy with my body chemistry and smells way too gamey but here it just adds a subtle warmth. It's become my favorite fragrance to wear to work, and may be a strong contender for my signature. Will definitely buy a full bottle!

Weirdly, I like this fragrance! The orange blossom is most prominent to me. Then vanilla and musk. It reminds me of fresh laundry. Or one of those "fresh cotton" or "linen" air freshners lol. It's nothing like the original Candy. At all. TOTALLY different. Not sweet or gourmand. It reminds me a little of Armani Code for Women except way less sweet...Not sweet at all actually. It's almost like Armani Code without the sweetness mixed with Tide detergent. I think the bottle/color combo is so fitting for this perfume because it's like a clean white laundry scent.

I am in love. This fragrance blows my mind! So fresh and girly! I smell musk mostly, and vanilla with a small (but present) hint of neroli. I usually dislike neroli yet it fits perfectly with this fragrance.

I cannot explain it, but WOW- what a perfect combo! And the best part is I own nothing that smells like this. Cost me but worth every penny. I recommend! Amazing perfume - may be Prada's best

PS: If you like Victoria's Secret "Heavenly" you may like this

This is okay I have to forget about for awhile to like it. I'd get tired of it too quickly bc of as the notes are listed the musk. The vanilla is there you can smell it or at least I can it's just really more of a strong musk. It's not a complicated fragrance at all. Bottle is pretty which tbh is why I bought it. The lasting power is about 2-4 hrs on me as for silage no one has mentioned it as they do with my other fragrances so there's that with the silage. If you like musk you'll definitely like it.

I tested this and it was only musk on me. No vanilla or any flowers. Just musk and some more musk. Not white musk, more like animalic and a bit smoky. Nothing like Candy or Candy L'eau.

Awesome fragrance!
I have been looking for this like 10 years now.
Prada is the only one that can do sweet and keep it classy and not sickening.
Oh, loving it. This is the musk I was looking for - a perfectly balanced close to the skin fragrance -
Just perfect!
I love it more than my regular Prada Candy. You can even wear this to work! Everyday! all seasons!

Update:
I received 2 compliments already and have been wearing it for about 2 weeks. It had been a while since I received a compliment so that made my day.

I see people love it but I gotta be honest Prada Candy Kiss is a musky marshmallow that disappears almost instantly. If it did last (it doesn't) I'd market this as a more sophisticated perfume because of the musk - the name feels wrong to me. I own and enjoy Prada Candy with it's vanilla and caramel delights but this feels like it got rid of all the things I like about the original and replaced it with orange blossom (doesn't play well on me) and musk. It still smells like a Candy relative but only distantly.

Ok, I did again a full review on Prada Candy line that basically I dislike but most of you disagree. I thought Florale is an exception as it's a bit more prototype but since I bought Kiss, you know what this means.

Prada Candy line shouldn't be confused or addressed to youth crowds. To me is more mature and starting with the original EDP I can't detect caramel but a 'sweet' benzoin. All in all, EDP,EDT,Florale and maybe Kiss face the same problem. Longevity! All have that classy cleanliness though. Good news is that Candy is a chemistry dependent perfume.

Kiss could be a tender sister of Marc Jacob's perfumes. It smells 'reality' like most of MJ perfumes, with a strange elegant 'muteness'. Although I have judged it as a cologne-granny-type of perfume that you may find in supermarkets, at least the greek one, on my skin this fact changed. I feel elegant, light, clean and like I am playing a role. I had a lot of time to feel like this. A perfume that is a character! Musky based with an intense orange flower essence and a powdery soft kiss of vanilla. I can compare it to the original with 'caramel' missing and I can detect benzoin as well. I like it. I will wear it on special occasions only, when I want to feel clean, bright and ELEGANT.

p.s: Musk x3 = Christian church heavy and respected fragrance. Now it makes sense why I thought Prada Candy reminded me of something so familiar. I guess in Paris, France that I have visited once, this would give a mysterious character in a cold/humid climate and a parisienne night. Mysterious, elegant as I have said so many times, strong and carefree. Have you seen Prada Candy ad? Can you hear the church's bells in the soundtrack? I love smelling it as it reminds me of an Anatomy's professor that wears classic EDP edition. Mine is missing caramel and heavyness. To end with, I now got why people call it like a feeling of a room filled with a marshmellow. I agree! It's musky-churchy, very lemony-citrus in the beginning, not that orangie as it mentioend but it softens later to musk (again) and a soft kiss of oriental vanilla. It makes me wanna search again Candy line but it's so wintery and I belong to another family of perfumes. I imagine it to mature people ONLY and hardly to classy/little devils younger crowds. So nice that perfumes remind us of people. I wish I could find mine soon or else I'll keep buying non-stop. Someone's help me haha. Kisses xxx

I'm wild for this fragrance. I had no expectation of liking it, yet when I put it on I was in seventh heaven! It doesn't bear much resemblance to the original Candy (a good thing), yet it's gourmand and sweet. It's more wearable, in my opinion. Soft, cottony, vanillary, musky... I'm wary of musk scents, as most make me feel nauseous. But this is one of the few where the musk is comforting and sexy. Others are Narciso Rodriguez for Her EDP and the newly released Azzedine Alaia scent. Hopefully this shall join my collection!!

Really musky almost too much but once it dries down you can smell the orange blossom. The vanilla doesn't come until as stated in the description the end. I'll mix it with another vanilla to tone down the musk a bit. I'd repurchase because it's nice but I probably will forget and move on to something else as its nothing groundbreaking. As for longetivity it lasts about three hours max which is ridiculous for the price. I'll wear it more once it cools down so maybe it'll perform better.

Update: Sillage is too poor on me for the price- 2 hours maximum. Also it doesn't project out too well. I bought a sample as I was hesitant to buy a huge bottle as it is so expensive and never on sale. I'm glad I didn't buy it as much as I love the smell of this and this is the only Prada fragrance I like. There is something missing for me, it feels cold, when I wear it I just feel there is something missing and that it lacks in longevity and projection for the price. I would gladly accept it as a gift and I would make use of it. However it is not special enough for me to pay almost £100 for 80ml. I love the smell, best out of all the Prada's for me, but still there is that little thing missing that makes me want to splash the cash, I just don't feel its fairly priced for what it is. But the scent is nice, but not worth nearly £100 for 80 ml. It is too weak a fragrance.

I had tried this a while back at Sephora , I was waiting for it to come in badly. Once it came i sprayed it and was underwhelmed , almost disappointed and walked away from it , but I brought home some samples which I just dug out. Here in the comfort of my home I feel different about it ,,,,as it has all my favourite notes I should like it. Musk and vanilla with some orange blossom. , it takes about 10 min to settle and then it's really great.
It's a sweet musky vanilla scent ,cottony powdery musk , the orange blossom give it some freshness along with the clean fuzzy musk and the vanilla gives it a caramel vibe which does bring memories of the original for sure. This is a soft , light ,comforting and sweet scent. But it's not weak nor fleeting. It goes into a skin scent , but better than your skin. , natural and powdery yet refreshing. Very musky , sweet and clean. I may have to get it. Although I asked my husband and he did not like it. I just hate that he is so picky ! But it does saves me from buying some.

I really like this one, I smell orange with caramel and vanilla- it smells more complex than the notes outlined. It has heavy silage to me and I could smell it for 7 hours on my skin. I am thoroughly impressed with this one. I will buy it when I can afford it. It is slightly gourmand, but has substance thanks to the orange notes so isn't as gourmand and soft as the other prada candy range. I couldn't stop sniffing my skin and I also got complimented with this one on.I also smelled this around me embracing me when I stepped out into breezy air. Definitely will buy this eventually. Good sillage unlike the others in my opinion, probably thanks to the orange notes which I love. I wouldn't have actually described this as musky personally, it smells more gourmand and vanilla with slight citrus undertones not musky. Might just be my skin chemistry though. Anyway I like this one on my skin, it is lovely. I will buy it when I can afford it, it is crazily expensive! I never see Prada going for cheap either!

Bottle=8/10 beautiful I like the colour and design
Scent=8/10 really lovely I like it lots
Silage=6.5/10
Longevity=7.5/10

It is much more complex than the notes listed suggest.

This scent hits the mark! It is a skin scent, milky and musky. The orange blossom is done right, not over powering, but there and beautiful. One of the best from the Prada Candy line in my opinion! Subtle, but powerful.

Ok, if given a bottle, I would wear it!! It just has a certain vibe, almost in a synthetic way for me, then gets rather pleasant, then vanishes way too fast!! Not a fan of the Prada line anyhow, this addition is nice enough, but kind of leaves me unimpressed!?
It is young, and young girls will probably enjoy it...As for me, not a fragrance I really want.

Absolutely amazing. It's extra delicate, milky kind of musk that will surround you like a soft cloud. It's quite sweet but it's very subtle sweetness. Actually it reminds me of light cakes in French pastry, relaxing, creamy body balm and a teddy bear. Yeah, it gathers a lot of good emotions in my mind. Additionally, this scent is very chic, made for a good girl that always knows how to behave and has a lot of natural charm, not to mention great clothes.
I think it's suitable for all seasons, from cool summer to warm kind of European winter.
Prada never impressed me so much before. That is why you should always give a chance to the house that has failed you so far. Look at me! It's my first beloved Prada!

I tried it today, I like it but I find it very generic and syrupy.
It reminds me very much of Givenchy Hot Couture EDT, but it doesn't last as much. I wouldn't mind if I got it as a gift, but I would not buy it myself.

People attracted to Candy for its name and history will not find many traces of the original in this flanker.
But please, don't be disappointed from the get go. Flankers are not here to be copies of originals, if you expect that each time - you are bound to be disappointed.

From the packaging and the name you might assume the worst of this flanker.
The only thing holding this perfume back is its name, as the juice is FANTASTIC.
It's the most delicious, silky white musk. There is nothing overtly sweet and heavy about this vanilla - it's a fluffy, meringue-like, light sweetness, that wraps itself around you like a thin pashmina.
Due to slightly salty character of vanilla and the addition of fresh orange blossom - it has a beachy, breezy, warm vibe you would have never thought Prada would go for. The ultimate feel-good fragrance.

Give this a go, with an open mind, and let yourself enjoy this simple, yet stunning, beachy blanket from Prada!

An interesting fragrance. When it works, it wraps me in a blanket of bright sweet orange blossom, from under which Candy's vanilla-caramel note appears once in a while. So when it works, it's fascinating, feminine and cheerful. But oddly enough, if I apply too much, or if my skin chemistry changes somehow or maybe my perception of this scent changes, it becomes incredibly sharp, with a very unpleasant and almost acrid undertone. The mysteries of skin chemistry, I guess. Nevertheless, I'll keep trying my luck with this.

I know I'll try this one again, but here's the impression of the first go.

Prada Candy Kiss smells very similar to Jennifer Aniston Lolavie in the opening, topped with the "matte"-sweet facet that the other Candy fragrances possess. The orange blossom notes feel particularly old-timey when assigned next to the the dryer sheet note, the powdered milk-vanilla note and "white musk" note.

This is called "Kiss", yet it is not a whispery caress of lips - to me, this kiss is like the person that slobbers too much when making out. It is a cloying and awkward fragrance on my skin; somehow powdery and harsh at the same time. I like the other Candy fragrances a lot and I wanted so badly to love this one, as I am an orange blossom fan. Prada Candy Kiss is not for me, but will probably be beautiful on someone else's skin. If you like this general fragrance composition, try Lolavie. You'll save money and might like it better because it feels brighter. Or, skip all the above and try L'Instant EDP if you want a creamy floral in your life.

I don't know about this one. I LOVE l'eau, but this seems like a harsher version. As with all things I try to scrub off, this not only did it give me a headache, but then it hung onto me allllll day! I'll give it 10 outta 10 for longevity, but that's about it. Pass! I'll keep my l'eau!

Very pretty scent with just the right 'kiss' of sweetness. Kiss dawns a sweetness but it's not over the top sweet, the orange blossom & vanilla work harmoniously here helping balance each other out. It's delicate, flirty feminine, & cheery, a scent I'm sure you'll find reaching for even the gloomiest days for a quick pick me up. There's no caramel listed here but it definitely retains the Candy DNA, only to me it's like they took L'eau's dry down & added more musk & orange blossom. So I'll say if you don't care for the original but like L'eau them I sure you'll like this too. Longevity & sillage are pretty moderate (could use some amping up), I didn't love it, but I did really really like the scent, debating if I want to add it to the collection or not. ;)

* In the line for me I'd say it goes..
-L'eau
-Kiss (*Jumped past the EDP, I find myself not even wanting to wear it anymore, but deff. want a bottle of Kiss now!)

I don't care much for the original Candy, but this one I really love. It's different from most of my favorite fragrances. The orangy vanilla is delightful with just a hint of musk. It works on me anyway. I want to think that it reminds me of the scents of my 80s high school years. But I also have this imagery of eating an orange creamsicle in an opium den... (candy kiss indeed!)

I cannot wait to buy this. Prada Candy Kiss is so beautiful, great for cool weather. It has a similar quality to Prada Candy but is also quite different, not as loud. The musk is powdery in a modern way and the orange blossom adds a dash of freshness. This perfume is simple yet so, so elegant. It makes me envision sitting on a giant vanilla marshmallow and being wrapped in a baby pink cotton and cashmere cardigan.

You know what? After wearing this a few times I don't seem to like it all that much anymore it is too fleeting and smells weird like orange blossoms and musk are not meant to be together.When I first tried I must have pulled out the vanilla as a main note so I liked it but now it's harsh and doesn't smell right to me

Let's do a review for Candy line in general so I could close this file. Am I the only one getting angry when people say that they smell yummy and not synthetic caramel in Candy EDP? Have you ever tried Viva la Juicy-Gold Couture? Then tell us. No offence!

I am a medical student. Did you know that benzoin (base of the Prada Candy) was used in wet hankies because of it's antiseptical properties? Prada Candy isn't for the younger crowds. Prada knows what it does! This perfume should attract ages above 40 because of the nostalgic feeling of this cleanness. It is 'sweet' but 100% for the strong characters.

Although I hate floral perfumes, if I had to choose one this would be Florale edition because as Prada said, this would be the smell of a 'caramel flower' (if it could exist). All in all, the good and the bad thing is that not every skin will accept and evolve this perfume so it could be a signature. Sometimes sillage is huge but lasting power is the weakest. I can't forgive this to such an expensive house and this happens for all, EDP, EDT, Florale and now Kiss edition.

Prada Candy Kiss is like a watered down summery edition of the original. It doesn't reminds it that much but there is an undertone. When I read from a reviewer that Kiss is like a huge marshmellow, I was impressed. To me is a sugared, not Prada-caramely, way lighter, lemony edition that can be used everyday and that's all. I am very sorry to say that for me the result is cheap. A cologne-like perfume that is nice in the beginning (soft white musk), fluffy and playful for a while (simply vanillic) and then a pure cleanser feeling (sharp citrus mixed with musk tones). My grandmother would like it but to be honest, this smell can be found even in supermarket's perfumes that older people adore. If I sound rude, this is my real opinion. Cheers and enjoy May people! xoxo

Kenzo Flower has the same vibe. Soft, innocent, a delicate skin scent. Nothing to say.

If you love Orange Blossom, you will definitely want this perfume! It gets this slightly unusual floral note just right - the musk and vanilla smooth any bitterness it sometimes has and makes it just sweet enough without being sugary.

The longevity and projection is about the same for me as the original Candy, it's not super strong or the most long-lasting scent on me - but it's also not weak. I have stronger 'all day' perfumes in my collection, but I love Candy scents for the days I want something a little softer, but still noticeable. However the original Candy does for you is probably how this one will be too.

Overall, what I am very pleased with is that while this is very different than the other Candy scents, it still has the same spirit and quality. I actually layered Kiss with a spray of the original Candy and wow! Because neither one has too many notes, they compliment really well and to me it just smells amazing :)

This is nothing like the original Prada candy.
It's definitely sun screen or a creamy lotion scent with less sweetness of the original. It lasts long on the skin with minimal sillage. Didn't work for me as there is a synthetic like note that made me feel queasy.

I'm wearing Kiss today and finding it really sweet!!
Where original Candy is thick caramel sweet Kiss is a delicious vanilla sweet not overpowering but very present with just a touch of musk and orange blossoms.
First time I tried it the musk seemed over the top but it soons calms down to sweet goodness.
EDIT it doesn't last very long to be fair (like all the other Candies) but I don't mind re spraying, I wish Prada did a lotion to match the scent

Yes,lovely!
Not my favorite but from the candy line it´s something charming and lovely creation.I love how it works with my body chemistry,just a real beauty.Not too sweet just a little hint of sweetness is there.
The opening was super fresh and floral,the dry down was however powdery vanilla with a musk and orange blossom in the background.I have to say that I love it from the opening to the dry down.It´s like a soft blanket on my body,like a cashmere sweater on a cold spring or fall day.
It was sooo enchanting that a want to smell again and again and again.
And YES.it´s the best candy for me of all time,I just looove it.I will buy a full bottle of this because I can´t live without this.

Just bought it last weekend after one sniff! I have the original which is great for winter as most gourmands and oriental vanillas are. I have the florale also which is just OK and I've been around someone who wears the l'eau. IMO this one is the best of all three minus any overt signature notes of the prior three. Light, clean with just a hint of sweetness. Lovely and wearable for anyone and great for spring or summer. I thought the longevity was great as I could smell it in the am.

This is very very similar to Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir. It alledgedly has only a few notes the same but the I'm not sure I could tell these apart. I would simply get whatever was cheaper. Both are lovely gourmand lite fragrances. In terms of aesthetics, I would plump for the Bvlgari because the bottle looks much more sophisticated and I like the Lion adverts. Both have the nougatine cakey smell and musk.
Addendum: Mon Jasmin Noir actually has considerably better longevity than Candy Kiss ,so unless that latter is much cheaper, I wouldn't bother. Mon Jasmin Noir keeps it's character for hours whereas Candy Kiss doesn't so much have a dry down as simply fades away.

I should love this with its vanilla and orange blossom, but it comes off a little sickly. Has an echo of Lancôme Miracle.

I am going to buy a couple of the big bottles of this. I keep wearing it day after day and reapply. My 1oz bottle is going down. I love this and the drydown is heaven because that is where I get the blossom smell and sometimes I get grape.

I'm impressed. It usually takes effort to tolerate overly musky scents, and I acutally like this one. It's very simple, like the rest of the Candies: shares the same type of musk with the rest, amplified 3x, and powderiness. The orange blossom is soft and fresh, and the vanilla makes it smell creamy. It's very pretty, but not very original. The bottle I beautiful, I love how the pink bottom reflects in the glass and the liquid. Longevity is great, sillage is soft. I get the same strength from the original Candy, which lasts a day on me, but is a skin scent.

Seriously disliked the original - but this is fluffy, like a room sized marshmallow that you can sleep or bounce around on, it's all soft and gentle and...Yeah, I love it!

I was really taken with this intially but I hated the dry down. It went from being a soft and powdery floral to a loud screechy one. It reminded me of Red Door in the end.

This is quite good and interesting scent, but not as good as original Candy, which is my most favorite scent I have ever owned.
It's musky, a little bit of vanillary and very little white floral.
At first sniff I was disappointed, it didn't seem good, but it developed nicely after some time. I don't feel such warmth, caramel and benzoin smell in it, as in original.
Something about it smells a little burnt. It still fine. Reminds me of vanilla scented candles.

Muah! Muah! Muah!, Gorgeous! always hoping in time the house of Prada would accommodate a more understated version & this has outshined the rest for me. I love EVERYTHING!!.....Candy Kiss is soft with delicate powdery undertones & a well balanced sweetness so none of that toothache malarkey. The previous Candy's i really did grapple with & found were like ugh!, compelling overly sweet caramel & sometimes a floral unpleasantness. At least for me Kiss is actually easy to wear, already enjoying this new flanker ( hate that word ). Perfect Prada sealed with vanilla cotton kisses. xxxxxxxx. :)*

That's a smell of "mature" wild strawberry. Orange blossom gives the composition an oily freshenss with a base full of musks and modern molecules iso e super/ambroxan. A good choice for those who want strawberries but are tired of fresh fruities.

I love this perfume. I used to be obsessed with lush products and still love the sakura bath bomb and the scrub called rub rub rub for the beautiful scent they have. I always wanted a perfume that smelled like that so I could have the scent on me all day. This perfume smells like those products to me. It smells like cherry blossoms, fresh cotton, and a hint of vanilla and musk. A perfect mix of fresh and slightly sweet, this may be my new favorite.

With this one what you see is what you get - Candy Kiss is sweet musk with an underlying freshness of orange blossom in the opening. Super creamy and powdery. It is by no means a cloying 'high school sweet' type - it has that something special that makes Prada fragrances so classy and graceful. Sophisticated sweet is how I'd classify Candy Kiss.
Need to test this one further to see how it performs. I think this might become my new love for the spring...

So where l'eau was the Orange candy flanker for candy-- for this one I got strawberries. Strawberries and cream top notes. This as a note isn't listed anywhere. The drydown was sort of disappointing-- just really similar to original candy which I already own.

I like this better than l'eau for sure which to my nose smells like prada candy watered down with floor cleaner. I don't know if kiss is fb worthy to me. I definitely am intrigued enough to try it a second time.

@Endymion - A scent doesn't need five thousand notes to smell rich and deep.

@ginepro To be fair, Candy does last quite a bit. It just refuses to show off.

Why not make an intense version of Prada Candy instead, with better sillage and lasting power...

Please have good sillage!

And that's a whole lot of musk...

Why not do another caramel with different side notes? A good caramel is so hard to find!
