Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift

Recently I had the opportunity to test a sample of Tayler Swift's first perfume and wanted to share my thoughts on it. First of all I LOVE the bottle :)It's a purple bottle that Taylor is supposed to have handpicked herself, and is adorned with gold charms and Swift's signature.
Sephora describes it as: 
Taylor's inspirational life experiences inspired this fragrance. Just like her creative approach to songwriting, every element is authentic, embracing all that is special about Taylor.
Wonderstuck is an awe-inspiring feeling. It could be a connection with someone or a rush you get when you experience something magical. Wonderstruck is also a lyric in the song "Enchanted" on Taylor's album Speak Now.

It looks like the market for this perfume is going to be huge. In less than 24 hours, more than 50,000 people “Liked” the ad on Swift’s Facebook page.

The Wonderstruck name comes from Swift’s song ‘Enchanted.
 The fragrance is described as, “The flawless beauty of freesia, apple blossom and raspberry spark a swirl of vibrancy and feminine allure … In the heart, a sweet surprise of blissful vanilla is embellished by airy, sun drenched honeysuckle and white hibiscus … Notes of golden amber and sandalwood are woven with a kiss of lush peach.”
The tag line of the perfume is, "The beginning of something magical''.

Perfume Category: Fruity Floral
Top Notes: Freesia, Tea, Raspberry, Dewberry, Apple Blossom
Middle Notes: Vanilla, Honeysuckle, Hibiscus 
Base Notes: Musk, Sandalwood, Amber and Peach
First of all I must say I absolutely love the bottle and the charms on it especially the birdcage one. Why do I always associate the color purple with magic and mystery? I would say the scent is pretty nice but nothing new. It's like a mix of Brittany Spears Midnight Fantasy and some other fruity Floral that I can't really  recall at the moment, mixed in with some peach notes. It is not overly sugary maybe because of the unsweetened tea note. It's a romantic gourmand with a nice sweet warmth too it. The raspberry and peach is what I can smell the most on my skin. I wasn't expecting something mind blowing from a celebrity scent so I'm not too disappointed. It's not a complex scent which makes it perfect for the targeted audience ( Mostly Taylor's fans) Buy it if you like sweet gourmand fruity florals. I will purchase it for the bottle alone :) 

It is available for $18 for the rollerball and $59 for the full sized bottle from Sephora

Enchanted is one of my favourite songs from her last album!!! She couldn't have chosen a better word from the song to name the perfume. I'm going to give this one a try- just for the name and the bottle. :P

Olá, desculpe invadir seu espaço assim sem avisar. Meu nome é Nayara e cheguei até vc através do Blog Alma de poesia. Bom, tanta ousadia minha é para convidar vc pra seguir um blog do meu amigo Fabrício, que eu acho super interessante, a Narroterapia. Sabe como é, né? Quem escreve precisa de outro alguém do outro lado. Além disso, sinceramente gostei do seu comentário e do comentário de outras pessoas. A Narroterapia está se aprimorando, e com os comentários sinceros podemos nos nortear melhor. Divulgar não é tb nenhuma heresia, haja vista que no meio literário isso faz diferença na distribuição de um livro. Muitos autores divulgam seu trabalho até na televisão. Escrever é possível, divulgar é preciso! (rs) Dei uma linda no seu texto, vou continuar passando por aqui...rs





Narroterapia:

Uma terapia pra quem gosta de escrever. Assim é a narroterapia. São narrativas de fatos e sentimentos. Palavras sem nome, tímidas, nunca saíram de dentro, sempre morreram na garganta. Palavras com almas de puta que pelo menos enrubescem como as prostitutas de Doistoéviski, certamente um alívio para o pensamento, o mais arisco dos animais.



Espero que vc aceite meu convite e siga meu blog, será um prazer ver seu rosto ali.

I haven't smelt this yet, but something tells me I'm gonna love it! from the look, and the description...I'm a sucker for anything sweet and floral, and taylor swift seems to deliver things that appeal to me, from her music video to her dressing, so I have a good feeling about this one :)

I would only like to sample it, as from the notes and the review, it is something that has been done before it too. However, if my teenage sister gets to see it she will probably go for the bottle but talking of her fragrance choice, she isn't a fruity girl but never say never.

I want to own this one for my Taylor Swift's perfume collection. The markup is significant. Thanks! :)
