Halloween is right around the corner, so my local drugstore has lined its shelves with tempting treats—bags of candy packed with delicious goodness screaming at me as I wander the aisles trying to find my favorite deodorant. Last week on an innocent trip to get shaving gel a bag of candy corn harassed to the point where I had no other choice but to buy it. What can I say; I am way to weak to resist a sweet treat.
It’s with that same weakness that I smelled and fell madly in love with Hard Candy’s Eau de Parfum Spray ($42-$55, sephora.com). So delicious and decedent, I knew that I had found my latest fragrance at first sniff. The sweet fragrance hid a layer of depth and mystery, but it wasn’t all innocence, though. There are some more serious scents behind that initial sweetness. The top notes of Pink Peppercorn and White Tea are rounded out with the essence of Jasmine and Rose. Combined with a warm vanilla and cashmere musk, you have a fragrance that is sweet enough to make a candy addict go straight. It’s not too overpowering and provides just the right mix of good girl and sex kitten—which is good because after all those bags of candy corn, I’m going to need something to help me feel sexy again!
