The fragrant pair DKNY Red Delicious Men and Women was introduced in March 2006, as flankers to the Be Delicious line of perfumes from 2004. Both fragrances were presented in limited edition and reportedly, more intense compared to the original.
DKNY Red Delicious Men belongs to the woody aquatic olfactory group and its olfactory structure remains faithful to the pyramid with top, heart and base notes. The ingredients employed are quite original and due to this fact the final result is a pleasant masculine fragrance.
DKNY Red Delicious Men starts off with an alcoholic cocktail that includes cognac and rum, aimed to sharpen your senses for the next phase. In the opening, this mix was tinged with accords of saffron flower, mandarin flower, bergamot and cardamom. Next, there is available the refreshing aroma of coffee, juxtaposed to another round of alcoholic beverages (notes of vanilla vodka and apple liquer) offset by accords of tiger orchid, davana and airy ozone. After no more than 90 minutes, the entire composition becomes woody, thanks to the combination sandalwood, okoume wood, moss, iris and patchouli.
Similar to the previous creations from Donna Karan that employed the name “Delicious”, DKNY Red Delicious Men is contained in a flacon that evokes the shape of an apple, the symbol of New York City and also the source of inspiration for the DKNY clothing line. The color scheme used was obviously red, in the color of glass and as well for the perfume’s label on the upper part of the flask.
