Candies For Women

Candies For Women

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): citrus and lavender, with floral middle notes of peony and ylang-ylang.

Candies perfume has always intrigued me, since their trendily young, sexy ad campaign years ago, which I remembered vividly when I decided to add this mini to my online shopping cart recently.

CLASSIFICATION: spicy, masculine

AGE GROUP: mature

You can sample Magnifique in September’s edition of Glamour magazine, along with several other new and upcoming fragrances.

AGE GROUP: Mature
