DKNY Be Desired: A sultry yet fresh summer scent

Just when you think that DKNY can't come up with another scent in one of their iconic apple-shaped flacons, here comes a stunning new one called Be Desired. This is a sultry version of their cult fave Be Delicious, with a more mysterious aura that invites people to lean in and take a little sniff.

DKNY's Be Delicious scents have always been known for their sparkling water and apple notes, but Be Desired wisely steps away from that. You guys know how much I love DKNY but one does wonder when - or if - it will ever smell dramatically different in its new iterations. Well, here's my answer!

Be Desired is a heady yet wearable fragrance, with top notes of Orange Oil, Tart Blackcurrant, and Violet Leaves, coming down to a heart composed of Grapefruit, Jasmine Sambac, and Turkish Rose. Finally it settles down into warm Cedarwood and Amberwood notes. It's a spicy, woodsy scent with splashes of citrus. I love it!

It's also particularly long-wearing on me. One friend asked me what it was one time even if I've already been wearing Be Desired all day, with zero retouches. Woody scents do stay on me the longest even when I sweat or get exposed under the sun.

So yes, try out the DKNY Be Desired if you love the line but have always wanted something sexier and more of a stand out. It also doesn't evaporate completely away in this summer heat! The 100ml and 50ml bottles retail for P4,550 and P3,500 respectively. DKNY is available in all Rustans Department Stores and SM Department Stores.
