Vera Wang Princess by Vera Wang (EDT) was launched in 2006. It comes from the designer house of Vera Wang and was created by Harry Frémont and Ilias Ermenidis. It comes in a royal purple-pinkish heart-shaped bottle with a crown top which reminds us of Her Royal Sweetness, the Princess. The current spokesmodel for Vera Wang Princess is Zoë Kravitz, the daughter of the one and only Lenny Kravitz. Zoë is an excellent impersonation of flower-power-glam-rock Princess, don't you think?
Zoë Kravitz is the latest Vera Wang Princess
It was the company's first youth oriented scent. It has a girly scent - soft, sweet and feminine wannabe - everything that a girl, a Princess, needs... and is. Unlike many other brands which cater to this genre of youth with scents that can explode your head, Vera Wang Princess is not over-powering or overly sweet. Through its unique flavors of golden apricot, water lily, mandarin, meringue, amber, musk and vanilla the perfume incites sensuous emotion - intimate and passionate. The quintessence of this royal fragrance - fruity and floral, makes it radiant and whimsical. Basically, it is an ode to youth and the young everywhere.
The Vera Wang Princess features top notes of water lily, Lady apple, mandarin, meringue and apricot. The heart notes are of guava, Tiare flower, tuberose and dark chocolate. The fragrance dries down to 'pink frosting', vanilla, amber and woods. The perfume opens with crisp refreshing scents of lady apple and golden apricot which are sweet and vibrant and gradually blends into a warm vanilla drydown. The fragrance is perfect for youth on move - ones who are lively and energetic. However, the mature and steady ones too will love it.
The fragrance is not designed to last long, so be sure that you keep the EDT near you and re-apply it during the day. The EDT starts with a sweet scent which is quite refreshing and vibrant at first. However, this wears off soon and a warm undertone of vanilla remains which reminds one of cotton candy. Some women don't like the musky drydown, but you'll love its harmonious blending with mandarin, apple, lily and chocolate.
Lady & Feelings
Fragrances work on our subconscious level. They have fascinating effect on our moods. Women generally love to wear fragrances that impress others. The kind of feelings that Vera Wang Princess invokes is different - it creates a sense of self-confidence, and is ideal for young women whether they are in the prime of their youth or in the prime of their career. The floral fruity fragrance will be liked by extroverts who like to be active, accept change and can take spontaneous decisions. Vanilla will make you feel a sensuality that you were previously unaware of. It can unleash controlled and hidden strong emotions which would resonate throughout your body. Researchers have identified seven categories of scents which can affect your mood, and fruity floral fragrances invoke a carefree and cheerful mood; they create an openness to accept change which normally isn't your type.
Vera Wang Princess is suitable for teenage girls and young women, but also for those who go to the office and want soft, positive vibes around them. It is a fun, spirited scent for those who want to enjoy their youth(fullness). The mixture of many flowers in one bottle is for you to enjoy - a fragrance for one who doesn't take life on a heavy note and knows that life should be tension free. The water lily, lady apply and mandarin meringue create aromas to charm your soul. The apricot and guava reminds you of the tropical essence. This EDT suits women who are passionate and pass a mysterious smile when remembering their intimate moments. Due to its soft and light character, the perfume is suitable for everyday, as well as office use, and for every season. Sweetness, however makes it also appropriate for romantic, teenage of course ;), occasions.
