This fall, the cosmetics company Hard Candy launched its first fragrance. This scent, which is called Hard Candy Fragrance was created for the hardcore Hard Candy client: a sweet, sexy and playful young woman.
The fragrance is made from white tea, pink peppercorn, rose, jasmine, caramel, vanilla and cashmere musk. It's fun, it's spicy, it's floral... it's hot.
What most impressed me about the perfume is the grown-up packaging. The black flowers berries and branches on the bottle strike me as very sophisticated for this brand. If not for the bright pink or green jewel-cut caps (which glow when the light hits), I would have thought this was a scent for thirty-somethings! Also, it comes packaged in a very pretty foil origami box featuring artwork from the bottle.
Hard Candy Fragrance is available as a 3.38 eau de parfum spray ($55) and as a 1.69 oz spray ($42).
