Dkny Perfume by Donna Karan, Dkny, from the house of Donna Karan, was released in 1999. With its unexpected blend containing a myriad variety of delectable fruits and lush florals, this scent for women was debuted as the perfect daily accompaniment to the modern girl’s life.
The top notes are a combination of the unexpected and the unforgettable: sweet orange, fuzzy apricot, the green aroma of tomato leaf and succulent mandarin orange. The heart of the scent takes on a floral tone with notes of heady yellow narcissus, cassia, clean orchid, jasmine, softly refined water lily, heliotrope, rich ylang-ylang and feminine rose. The perfume gains an inviting warmness from base notes of milky sandalwood, sensual amber, dark patchouli, earthy birch and the pungent luxuriousness of suede.
