DKNY Be Delicious City Collection by Donald Robertson

Estee Lauder has an in-house illustrator? According to Donald Robertson’s website, they do and it’s him! His Instagram account (profile reads: be a warrior not a worrier…) is huge and his background is in beauty and fashion so it seems to be a perfect tie in.

DKNY Be Delicious City Collection

How well this collection will resonate with other countries I’m not so sure. In blue we have The Brooklyn Girl, in pink The Chelsea Girl and in Purple, the Nolita Girl. I think you need a clear idea about what those actually are to choose from sight alone but maybe the notes will help you along. As far as I can tell they bear no relation whatsoever to the names but share a seasonal floral freshness and happy spirit.

Brooklyn: Fruity Floral with notes of blueberry, freesia and amber. To my nose, this is very strong on the freesia – very springlike and rather fresh with a bit of a bulb base.

Chelsea: Floral Musk with black rose, butterfly orchid and musk. There’s a lot of musk in this but somehow it doesn’t weigh the fragrance down – I still get rose very nicely and the Be Delicious thread is evident.

Nolita: Floral Woody Fruity with raspberry, magnolia and sandalwood. This is the most fruity – you get a big blast of raspberry before it turns creamy and floral.

There isn’t one fragrance here that is going to push you out of your comfort zone – they’re very, very wearable as everyday spritzes in spring time. Despite the fact I thought I couldn’t be interested by Be Delicious any more (in 9 years, I have reviewed A LOT of the variants), I could easily reach for any one of these and feel a little bit more happy for it. They’re HERE.
