I have to admit that I’m a bit unclear about the name of this fragrance. I thought it was I Heart NYC (based on the box), But I also find references to it as I Heart DKNY. So, whatever you want to call it, this is DKNY’s ode to New York. This is the original DKNY Delicious scent, which features the signature crisp green apple heart.
Top Notes: Grapefruit, Magnolia, Cucumber
Middle Notes: Lily of the Valley, Rose, Tuberose, Violet, Green Apple
Base Notes: Amber, Sandalwood, Woodsy Notes
This fragrance definitely features the Green Apple middle note, as that initially is the most prominent note for me and several of my friends. It is crisp and fresh, but not at all overpowering. After about 10 minutes of dry down time, the lily seems to come out a bit more as the green apple recedes, and I love the mix of the fresh apple with a white floral to balance it out. My friend Peace had a little bit more of the Sandalwood than me, and it was a great base to the fragrance.
This is a great all purpose fragrance. While not ideal for clubbing, it works for pretty much everything else. Work, shopping at the mall with friends, brunch with nana…. you get the idea.
