Most Helpful Positive Review I would like to
I would like to start with the bottle...if I had received a regular sized bottle, I would give my honest review of it. Since I only received a trial sized vial, I can only say the bottle looks pretty in photos...I have no opinion on how it secures, how it applies (spray or dab) or feels (cheap or luxe weighted bottle).
The fragrance notes list things like bitter orange, patchouli and cocoa accord. I am OK with patchouli in a fragrance if it's not the main note. Orange in a perfume is nice but it depends on what it is paired with and how it's blended. I don't smell anything cocoa in this, unless it's so buried in the blend that it's moreso there to round everything out so you can't pick out the individual notes. I agree that the overall blend comes across as being light and slightly woodsy, and that's quite pleasant on my body chemistry and to my preferences for fragrance. I felt this was a very subtle fragrance that would be difficult to oversupply, and that fades out gently. it doesn't linger for too many hours, so one may wish to reapply midday. That is the main reason for taking 1 star off.
Most Helpful Critical Review I was really excited
I was really excited when I found out I was getting the Prada box but was disappointed when it came in a sample size. I did say that I would accept sample sizes and in this case it was probably for the best. I'm confused by the notes or accord. There's this scent that is not appealing to me and I can't quite figure it out and even after reading the scents involved I just get more confused. I want to say the initial notes I smell come across as menthol and black licorice-like to me. Bitter orange is lost on me. Maybe I just don't know how it smells, but the cocoa and the vanilla do smell nice together. And I will say that after a couple hrs, the scent became more appealing. If this is a perfume that I'd buy, I'd probably only use it in the evening, it doesn't come across as a light or day perfume. And not to pile on, cause it is a quality perfume, but Personally I don't think the the name Prada candy night fits this product at all. I was expecting something totally different based on the name. So do I love Prada? YES! Do I love Prada candy night personally? M ok Ho. But I'm more of a vanilla, lavender, citrus, fresh, clean scents kinda girl and I know tons of people will like the dark, woodsy, vanilla and Prada perfume.

When it comes to perfume it seems like once I find one I like then I keep purchasing the same one over and over and never allow myself to venture out and find something new. So when Voxbox sent me a sample of this Prada Candy perfume I was excited to get the opportunity to try something new. The packaging is simple yet beautiful. As soon as I tried it I thought it smelled like a grown up version of cotton candy. It has a sweet note to it without being too over the top. It hung around all day without me having to reapply. If you love perfume that is more sweet, light, and fresh then you will love this perfume. I know for myself I have a new perfume that I will be using and buying in addition to my regular perfume choices. You won't be disappointed with this one.
I got a little
micaelaa2 from undisclosed
I got a little trial size of this fragrance. It is one that I have smelled before and was never a fan of. If you are a fan of Prada Candy and want a good night time fragrance or want to smell a little more mature, I would recommend this one. While I didn't love the scent on ME, it smelled great on my mother. Pulls very different on different people. Giving 4 stars because it is a quality fragrance, just not my taste.
No picture because my mother loved it so much she took it.

It is a nice florally smelling perfume a little to powerful for me and too pricey. I would not spend my money on it but it is a decent smelling perfume.

kashaylam from undisclosed
I've never owned any Prada perfumes and while I'm more of a floral person this is more woodsy with musk and cacao so it's not something that would purchase but it does not good on other people who people who chemistry just works better with musk so I know who's gonna get this for a gift eventually but overall it does not smell bad it's just not for me.

nwzhang from undisclosed
Just to note, I received the 0.05 ml sample of this perfume but this was not an option when picking the size variety for this review. I thought this perfume was too sweet smelling and didn't really fit my age range (early 20s). I felt that someone younger would be more suited for this scent. In terms of lasting power, I noticed it disappeared in about 2-3 hours after spraying on my wrists. Overall, I'm not impressed by this perfume and would prefer the original Prada Candy.

Surprised initially with how strong the scent was based on its light and fruity profile. It doesn't last incredibly long, so reapplication is a must if you want to be able to walk into a room and turn heads.

chrissypedia from undisclosed
This perfume is definitely long-lasting and I thought the new notes for the 'after dark' version would be more my speed but it's still a touch too gourmand of a scent for me. There is a luxurious aspect of it but I almost wished this faded more on me just so it wasn't as overpowering in its sweetness.

Smells delicious!! I kept seeing ads for it all over and had been wanting to try it. I definitely think this will be my new scent
My initial thought when
saraf39 from undisclosed
My initial thought when smelling this perfume from the bottle was that it smelled like the purse section in a department store. Not a bad smell.
I did expect something sweeter based on the name, but it is not. It is not overpowering, but it does have an almost musky scent. It lasted all day for me, and did not lose any potency.
I didn't dislike the scent, but I prefer mine to be a bit "spicier." That being said, I do intend use the rest of the sample and may end up changing my mind about that.
I have mixed feelings
aaracelir from undisclosed
I have mixed feelings about this perfume. I have tried it a few times and the smell lingers and lasts throughout the day, which is really great if you're a fan of the perfume, but this specific one is just not for me! It's just a bit too powdery and sweet for my taste. If you're a fan of these type of scents you might really enjoy it!!
I like that this
reneelynn from undisclosed
I like that this scent was sweet, but balanced with woodsy tones. It is unique and great for a special night out, but not something I would personally wear every day. I would recommend this if you enjoy changing up your fragrances from time to time as it is fun and playful, but with a twist.
I thought this perfume
gillianm14 from undisclosed
I thought this perfume had a nice, unique scent. It was strong but not too strong and it lasted a while. Overall I like the perfume!!! I'd definitely wear it again. I was only given a sample size to review by influenster but will definitely be using the sample up!
There is no delicate
briannatravels from undisclosed
There is no delicate or gentle way to wear this intense perfume. Sweet and musky, it was very overwhelming. I normally wear Chloe which had a floral and mineral zip, and the warmth of this Prada scent just did not vibe with me at all. There is a definite luxuriousness to the way this scent totally envelopes you, so only wear it if you're willing to go for over the top in all aspects!
This perfume was a
flowermeng from undisclosed
This perfume was a really nice surprise! It's name is Candy, which led me to believe this was going to be an extremely sweet scent, which I usually like but I wasn't looking forward to smelling like candy. However, this isn't that. It smells sweet but not too much; it smells deeper and more sophisticated! I'm horrible at describing perfumes so I usually like to describe how I think they would be if they were people! (i.e. YSL Black Opium - pretty & nice popular girl liked by everyone) This perfume smells like the sweet quiet girl who goes to coffee shops to do work on her laptop, always ordering the same coffee and pastry! This perfume smells like rich deep chocolate, I wore it out to dinner and the whole night I was like "wow, I smell like a chocolate crossiant!" I really like this perfume and would actually be willing to buy the full size!
I received a small
loraann0f8d19ab from undisclosed
I received a small sample size of this perfume. I don't believe it was even 1.0 oz. I only got two uses out of it, maybe if I didn't spray so much at first I could have gotten three out of the sample. Like the name of this product implies it is definitely a sweet smelling perfume. When I was trying to spray the small sample I did do to much of it the first time around and that was too much over time. So a little goes a long way. The smell kind of reminded me of cotton candy. If you like sweet smelling perfumes then you will enjoy this. Overall, I would recommend this product to someone, for me personally I would purchase a small bottle as I like to wear different scents.

I received this complimentary product through influenster in exchange for my honest review.
This product is very milk chocolate-y. I don't really like to walk around smelling like a Hershey's bar. After a while, it fades to floral musk. It lasted about 4 hours without touch up.

This perfume is very nice. It's very sweet and flowery smelling. I feel like this would be a nice perfume for a morning or daytime event.

This perfume is alright! It smells nice but maybe too sweet. This is a perfume that I wouldn't mind wearing once in a while but it's not one I would gravitate towards

abeersa from undisclosed
For me it is the fruity light smell that was wining. It is a light fragrance that lasts for sometime. Amazing for casual wear, not too strong or overpowering. I guess it really tones down the mood, kind of reliving stress type of fragrance. Overall i liked it and is a fragrance i can wear on daily basis.
My new favorite. Prada
kristens144 from undisclosed
My new favorite. Prada candy is my new favorite. It has a strong smell that lasts with you for a long time. Love it and will definitely be buying it in the future.

It us mid. Like it is nit the worst, but it is not the best. It is just... meh. It lingers which is nice, but it definitely is not something I would buy for myself. and I wouldn't ask ask for it as a gift either.
I was interested in
charlotteg158c from undisclosed
I was interested in trying this perfume after not being very impressed with Prada Candy. Unfortunately, this perfume disappointed me as well. I find the cocoa scent to be overwhelming, and very, very bitter - almost like coffee grounds. Like Candy, there is a burnt, almost acrid note that spoils things for me. The other main note I pick up is patchouli, which does not blend with the cocoa at all well in my opinion. If I really concentrate, I can detect iris and vanilla notes, which soften the scent somewhat, but overall this perfume just smells very unbalanced to me. It's a shame because I usually love a floral gourmand. On the plus side, sillage is quite good, and wear time is excellent. If you love darker, more complex scents, this may be a winner for you. It wasn't for me.
I received a free sample in exchange for an honest review.
This scent smells so
dtaylor023 from undisclosed
This scent smells so good on dry down! On first spray it's kinda heavy on the powdery scent however when it sinks into you skin it smells really sweet like vanilla and on me I can definitely smell the chocolate notes. I love it, however I love the original Prada Candy more and as that is already in my collection I don't see myself buying this one.
