(Review) DKNY Women Energizing Eau de Toilette

Inspired by the city that never sleeps, it’s pulsating, non stop energy, with a skyscraper influenced bottle to boot comes the newest from DKNY. Called DKNY Women Energizing Eau de Toilette, it’s an updated addition to DKNY – The Fragrance, originally done in 1999, and just in time to refresh you during the sweltering summer days and nights that have already arrived.

DKNY Energizing Eau de Toilette

DKNY Women Energizing EDT is what I would call a chilled fragrance, chilled as in vodka which is one of the main notes and chilled in that it radiates coolness as opposed to warmth. It truly smells like vodka and I mean that in the best way. The Chilled Vodka and Tomato Leaf notes are so prominent in the beginning and middle of the scent. Don’t fears you’ll smell like a cocktail though, it’s not that like that.

It’s cool, with a zing of citrus (mandarin and blood orange notes) and so fresh. There are some wet florals in there such as water lilies for balance and the drydown brings a little musk and the white birch note. While I’d prefer to have the vodka note all along, it’s still a sultry summer worthy scent. It has medium sillage and isn’t too strong, so you won’t actually remind people of a martini and you can wear it hailing a cab to the newest downtown hotspot or into the office each day.

DKNY Women Energizing is Sephora and Sephora.com and will launch at Macys shortly.

1.7 oz is $ 50.00 with 1 oz at $ 36.00.
