Vera Wang LookTuesday, December 02, 2008
This new offering from Vera Wang is sure to send all prospective brides running to their nearest department store, looking for a bit of Vera for their special day, even if they can't afford that $20,000 dress.
I could tell you all sorts of things about how Vera says that this fragrance is not only about your own look, but is also about the look between two people, etc. There was a whole video and quite frankly I was a bit lost after listening to her discuss the namesake.
What's more important is how the fragrance actually smells. While looking at the list of notes (see below) might make you think that this is a white floral fragrance, you'd be wrong. You might also note the Oakmoss note and assume that this is a heavy, rich Chypre fragrance. Again, it isn't. Instead I think that this is a fresh, green citrusy scent. Yup, it really is!
On me the Water Greens and Lychee really predominate overall, and they will fade somewhat but continue to set the overall fresh tone of this scent. The Freesia comes in a bit more after about an hour or so, adding just a touch of floral. However it is the Skin Musk and I think a hint of Vanilla which come together with the fresh top notes to create a light and slightly powdery scent that lasts all day.
Top Notes: Mandarin, Watery Greens, Lychee, Golden Delicious Apple
Middle Notes: Lily, Freesia, Jasmine
Base Notes:Vanilla, Skin Musk, Oakmoss, Patchouli
Recently Kiki asked me for a light scent appropriate for working in a hospital. While I personally wear whatever I want to work in my hospital, I think a light fresh scent like this would be perfect! I love this scent and I'll continue to wear it quite a bit in the future.
