Happy Monday! Today I have a gorgeous collection of limited edition fragrances to share with you…
DKNY will shortly be releasing three limited edition flankers – the Be Electric collection, as the latest additions to their world renowned Be Delicious range. Inspired by the pulsating lights of the city that never sleeps – New York, the Be Electric trio are presented in brighter than bright, neon bottles, in the recognised apple shape of Be Delicious fragrances.
I knew I had to try these fragrances as soon as I saw them – apart from loving the last Be Delicious fragrance, Be Desired, I’m also a total sucker for neon colours, and these, though probably not to everyone’s taste, are bright, bold, and right up my street!
The Be Electric fragrances can all be described as sparkling, juicy and fruity, whilst being oh so wearable. The theme here is the energy of the bustling city and the optimism of exciting new beginnings, and I think the packaging as well as the fragrances sum this up really well.
So let’s take a look at the scents –
The Pink one – Loving Glow: This was the first fragrance I tried out of the three, and I instantly fell in love. Loving Glow has fruity top notes of juicy blackcurrant, tart grape and pineapple. Jasmine and purple violet blend with apricot for the heart, and vanilla, right amber wood and sensuous musk are at the base, giving this scent a depth of allure.
The Green one – Bright Crush: Keeping with the fresh and fruity theme, Bright Crush has sparkling top notes of bergamot and blackcurrant, sweet plum is enveloped at the heart by pretty florals of frangipani and peony, and base notes of golden amber, vanillia and creamy woods add warmth and femininity.
The Orange one – Citrus Pulse: With a nod to the freshness of oranges, without the sharpness, Citrus Pulse opens with a blend of nectarine, mandarin and passion fruit. A floral current also runs through the fragrance with notes of jasmine absolute, plumeria blossom and honeyed magnolia at the heart. Benzoin, warm musk and sandalwood are blended at the base to give a rich and creamy sweetness.
Just because the packaging is bold and neon, I think I expected these fragrances to be a lot sharper than they are – but they’re not actually sharp at all, they’re all very sweet, very feminine and like I originally said, surprisingly easy to wear. I really can’t decide which I love the most! If you’re on the hunt for a new spring fragrance I highly recommend you check these out!
The DKNY Be Electric Collection will have an RRP of £37 for each 50ml bottle, and they will be available nationwide from March 2016.
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
