Vera Wang Princess

At first look the perfume bottle didn’t draw me in, I’m a total packaging person. But I decided to give it a try because when does Vera Wang not get it right? I ended up loving it! The scent is really feminine and not overpowering and best of all my husband even likes it. This was the first perfume in a long time he has commented on really liking the scent.

Vera Wang Princess begins with notes of waterlilly, lady apple, mandarin meringue, and golden apricot skin. Mid notes of ripe pink guava, Tahitian flower, wild tuberose, and dark chocolate which give way to delectable base notes of pink frosting accord, precious amber, forbidden woods, royal musk captive and chiffon vanilla.

New Cherry perfume

Cherry
New from Masaki Matsushima “Cherry” .Cherry blossom season is an important and symbolic time of year in Japan. It marks the end of winter and the rebirth of nature with deep philosophical meanings: The cherry blossom (sakura) represents absolute beauty and is a reminder of the ephemeral nature of life, and the cherry fruit is a symbol of harmony. It’s only natural that Japanese designer Masaki Matsushima captured this facet of his country’s culture and rendered it in a conceptual perfume.

It is quite a challenge to create a feminine fragrance that is based on the cherry without it falling into the category of edible scents used in liquors or candies. Jean Jacques, Masaki’s “nose,” managed this subtle combination of the mat; base with a cherry top and blossom heart. $32.50-$60
