The final fragrance of the DKNY scents is Rio’s scent, it really does the city justice. This is a sultry, sexy fragrance. You’ll want to reserve this one for dinner with your sweetie or a similar occasion.
Top Notes: Apple, Passionfruit
Middle Notes: Gardenia, Orange Blossom
Base Notes: Benzoin, Myrrh, Sandalwood
This fragrance opened with more passionfruit than apple, a bit more subdued and deeper than the apple note featured in many of these scents. After about 5-10 minutes the scent turns a bit deeper and more woodsy as the sandalwood was coming out more.
This really is a sexy scent. Several of my friends mentioned that they needed a sexy voice to go with it (Cybil Shepard was mentioned as the prototypical sexy voice), and they all wanted to wear it for date night.
