Be Delicious by Donna Karan Women's Fragrance
Donna Karan’s Be Delicious women's fragrance appears with its notes of sour apples and other botanicals. Spray on the Fresh Blossom eau de parfum by day or night, no matter what size oz you get. These fragrances come in gleaming apple-shaped metal and glass bottles.How do the types of Donna Karan women's fragrances differ?
Perfume, eau de parfum, and eau de toilette are three types of women's fragrances made by Donna Karan. The difference between these three scents is the intensity of the fragrance. Perfume has the highest concentration of scent, followed by eau de perfume. Perfume releases its notes gradually, which makes perfume complex. Eau de perfume and toilette release their notes fairly quickly. Donna Karan also has a line called Be Delicious Eau So Intense, which is a version of the eau de parfum.What are perfume notes?
In perfume, notes are actually the scents that make up the perfume. There are top notes, middle notes, and base notes.
- Top notes are also called headnotes. Top notes are often based on fruit and vegetables. They are the lightest of the notes, and in Donna Karan’s Be Delicious lines, they would be notes of sour apple.
- Heart notes, or middle notes, are noticed as the top notes start to fade. Heart notes are also based on fruits, flowers, and spices. Be Delicious heart notes include magnolia, tuberose, and white muguet rose.
- When the top notes are completely gone, the base notes come into play. Since the heart notes are lingering, they blend with the base notes. Bottom notes of Be Delicious include sandalwood, white amber, and blonde woods.
The Be Delicious fragrances have slightly different formulas though all of them have apple as a top note. For example, Fresh Blossom has blackcurrant blossom and basil as top notes. Be Tempted has notes of myrrh and licorice.How do you wear women's fragrance?
How you apply women's fragrance depends on whether you are wearing it during the day or at night. Here are a few tips to consider:
- Take a shower with unscented soap.
- Dry your skin completely so the scent will adhere, and then add some moisturizer.
- Spray on the fragrance while you are undressed.
- If you are going out at night, spray the fragrance around your neck.
- If you are going out during the day, spray the fragrance below your waist, for the fragrance will rise as it evaporates.
