I’m going through a phase… where I just don’t feel like wearing anything at all… fragrance I mean. Do you sometimes feel that way? It is certainly not for a lack of choices, but simply that transient stage in between seasons of change, and nothing seems to fit. When there is just too much going on, I prefer having nothing on at all. But when I find myself in a crowded train and the crush of humanity is just overwhelming, or smelling a little greasy after lunch… I like to reach for DKNY Be Tempted Eau So Blush.
DKNY Be Tempted is a new sexier take on the classic DKNY Be Delicious collection, and this Fall 2016, DKNY tempts us further with a softer flanker named DKNY Be Tempted Eau So Blush. Housed in the signature apple-shaped bottle, Eau So Blush is a beautiful mauve-pink hue that demands to be caressed and held close.
Although it captures the original zest and playfulness of the Be Delicious line, DKNY Be Tempted Eau So Blush actually contains no apple notes at all. Instead, it is a light floral musk that manages to be both fresh and feminine at the same time. It opens with a tantalising mix of pink grapefruit, blood orange, magnolia and red currant. This is balanced with a fragrant floral heart of peony, jasmine and cedar wood .
Wearing DKNY Be Tempted Eau So Blush is like putting on a negligee… pretty and sheer. It stays close to the skin, and no matter how much I douse myself, I cannot smell it until I put my nose close to it. The fragrance stays on for about 4 hours before disappearing completely, but before it does, Eau So Blush evolves into a creamier mix of creamy woods, apricot and solar musk.
It is charming, utterly irresistible in its peony pinkness, feminine without pretending to be too sophisticated. Perfect for the warmer weather if you’re not in the mood for colognes. Well balanced and easy to wear. DKNY Be Tempted Eau Blush is now available at TANGS (Orchard, VivoCity), Metro Paragon, Robinsons (Raffles City, JEM, Orchard) and Takashimaya; and retails for $137 (100ML) and $102 (50ML).
