 My Thoughts

DKNY are famous for their iconic apple-shaped perfumes. It started with Be Delicious and has gown into a collection of apples over the years. These apples are know and loved worldwide and for every minute that passes, two apples are sold. When Be Delicious was released, it was the first time Apple had been used as a main accord in a perfume. Whilst DKNY are still making these fragrances apple shaped, not all of the latest additions contain apple. Instead the contain the spirit of New York (The Big Apple) and the fresh, crisp essence of an apple. The Be Electric collection is made up of three fragrances, Citrus Pulse, Bright Crush and Loving Glow. Loving Glow is inspired by New York City nights and it is the most sensual fragrance of the collection. It opens with dark juicy blackcurrant, tart grape and tropical pineapple. It has a floral heart of sweet apricot, delicate jasmine and pretty violet. The base is filled with sweet and woody notes of vanilla, amber wood and musk. Loving Glow contains a playful array of fruit which are somehow softer and sweeter than you might expect, the floral heart is also much more distinct making it an overall more evening floral-fruity fragrance. It’s  sweetest of the Be Electric collection and whilst it is a delight, it is a little young for my taste. My personal favourite of the three is Bright Crush. 

DKNY Be Electric: Loving Glow is available exclusively at The Perfume Shop from 14th January 2016. Nationwide from March 2016.
