DKNY Women fragrance: A U-turn in thoughts

I purchased this fragrance in the Boxing Day sales last year when everyone rushes down to the stores  to bag a few bargains.  Because this was a sale item at the time, I wasn't allowed to smell the fragrance to get an idea of the scent which was a shame, but  I still brought it anyway as it was a good deal  for  a 50ml fragrance and body lotion for £18.
I was itching to get home and try out the fragrance (and most of the other fragrances I got a good deal for!), but I have to say that I hated it! I have never actually been so disappointed with a fragrance- you know when you try out a fragrance and it's not really to your taste, but you manage to encourage yourself of the possibility that you may end up wearing it because it may go well with a certain event or outfit in the near future? I didn't feel the same with this fragrance. It smelt a bit like coriander and tomatoes.


I'm not exactly sure what has happened to me since then, but I had a little whiff of the fragrance when I was doing a bit of spring cleaning yesterday and I, for the first time actually took a liking to it. Maybe my taste has matured, or the scent has matured- who knows? But I like the scent, and my hair smells of it at this moment.

The refreshing floral scent was created with inspiration from the spirit and energy of New York.  The fragrance is a floral scent, and is perfect for those mornings when you need a quick boost from a refreshing scent. The scent also smells great on your hair which I think is great- I love fruity fragrances, and so spraying fruity scents on your hair makes it smell slightly artificial, but because the DKNY fragrance smells fresh and floral, it gives off the impression that your hair naturally smells florally because the scent is a very 'clean' spring/summer scent.

























Have you tried out this fragrance? What do you think? What were your initial thoughts?

  3. I've been warned off this fragrance by a friend who works at the Perfume Shop but your thoughts has kinda opened my eyes. Fresh floral scents are my sort of thing at the moment as I'm pregnant and fruity scents currently make me wanna vom. Does it really smell of tomatoes?? :)
