DKNY Be Delicious Skin

DNKY Be Delicious Skin EDT review swatch photo
DKNY Be Delicious Skin: £39*

I've admittedly never tried Be Delicious, despite it being a very iconic perfume from the past couple of years. It's one of those instantly recognisable fragrances that I always notice when perfume shopping but have never actually tried for myself. I've always been drawn to the packaging, its pretty, sleek and really attractive. It fits right in on my dresser with the rest of my fancy perfumes. The scent is fresh and uplifting and very crisp, just like I'd imagine an apple perfume to smell. I don't find it too overwhelming but to be it has a very "classic" feel to it. Like slightly musky, but I find it to smell quite strong of vanilla or cucumber with a hint of apple. Not as apple-y as I expected, but it's very nice. It's a charming, youthful fragrance, and I can see why it's quite an iconic perfume from DKNY. This version isn't as fragranced as as traditional perfume as the concentration of scent is much less than your average EDP. However the same scent for the EDP is used, just in a much smaller dose to allow for the skincare friendly ingredients.

However the difference with this Be Delicious Skin fragrance is that it claims to have skin benefits in it. As far as being a hydrating perfume I am very intrigued. I can't understand how it works despite reading the press release over and over again. It basically says its a blend of different things that benefit hydration. Which means the stuff inside it is supposed to hydrate and nourish your skin, what these are apart from being described as an "Apple Fusion Complex" I don't know. I'll have to report back on that one as I still can't quite get my head around it. But in all, a good perfume. Safe, simple to wear and easy on the nostrils!
PS. Spot me in the reflection!


  1. I've always seen this perfumes whenever I walk past a perfume counter, but have never given it a quick smell! the bottles are so cute though x

  2. This sounds so interesting! I've never heard of a perfume to be hydrating as well ♥

  3. I almost picked up one of the older ones in the Boots January Sale but I'm glad I didn't now! I really like the sound of this :-) xx

  8. Really want to try this, sounds.. interesting!x

  9. Love the be delicious perfume, been a staple on my dressing table for a while now!xx

  10. I don't get the concept of this - surely you have to put loads on for it to have skin benefits!

  11. I absolutely love the regular be delicious. Got it as a gift one year for my birthday, and used it for exactly a year :P
    i suppose it's quite interesting this perfume has skin benefit since regular perfumes have a lot of alcohol which are probably bad for the skin.


  12. I love the dkny frangrances, so fresh and fruity!

    Great for a handbag everyday scent :)

  13. This sounds really nice...I like DKNY fragrances as they're normally really fresh which is a nice difference as I tend to wear sweeter scents! :)

  15. i love dkny perfumes!! but i do think the hydrating claim is somewhat of a marketing gimmick - afterall no one sprays perfume all over enough (unless they want to be noticed from miles away) so there's probably minimal benefit in it being hydrating anyway :)

  16. Love this perfume, DKNY always do amazing perfumes. Love your reflection in it too lol.


  17. this is a perfume i also see every time i wonder around the perfume stands but have never actually picked up and tried. as someone who picks most of their perfumes on what the bottle is like, i think i'd get along very nicely with this one! i think the bottle shape is very sleek and elegant. the scent you've described also sounds like one that i would like but i'm not sure if it'll be too musky for me. i'm definitely going to go and check it out in store though - especially now there is a version with skin benefits! :) X
