Vera Wang Princess Perfume Review

Princess by Vera Wang. I'm sure most of you either have it, sniffed it, or have heard about it. This is a very popular perfume, and the first one in Vera Wang's princess series. Princess  is supposedly geared towards 18-24 year olds, but I for one do not believe in fragrances having an age restriction. I say wear whatever scent makes you happy, and gels with your skin chemistry. 
Vera Wang: Radiant. Whimsical. Born to Rule!
Created for the modern day Princess, this sheer, fruity floral fragrance is definitely born to rule! The scent sparkles with the captivating, sweet, tart aroma of delicate lady apples and the coveted tahitian tiare flower and finishes with a tasty vanilla chiffon - a treat fit for royalty!

A few years back I fell in love with this fragrance which consists of Juicy guava, pink frosting and dark chocolate among other notes. I had purchased a small bottle, and had very quickly used it all up. I am sooo happy, when the other day, my cousin gave me a huge bottle in a gift set as an early birthday present.
  It comes with a huge tub of velvety body butter that smells just like the perfume...

 Love the bottle...



The cap comes studded with purple stones.
 You can wear it as a ring, or pair it with the cute little crown cap and wear it in a chain around your neck.

I remember how surprised I was the very first time I smelt this perfume. I was expecting something very candy like, sweet and vibrant. But this princess is very soft spoken, somewhat shy and  probably likes  to adorn herself in gauzy sheer chiffons and delicate lace.
Princess to me is a little bit of powder, a little bit floral and a little bit gourmand.
Sweet fluffy frosting, with hints of dark chocolate that you want to stick your finger into and lick off. 
 If you are looking for a soft fruity/ floral gourmand, but the overpowering sweetness of most celebrity scents gives you a toothache, then give princess a whiff. You won't be disappointed. Lotus, tiare flower, guava and dark chocolate are most detectable on my skin. It is blended very well with the floral notes, hence preventing it from being too foody or vanillary. I don't find it fruity at all, just a watery light guava mingled with florals and chocolate.
The pretty lilac color matches this soft scent perfectly. Use it with a light hand, as it is very long lasting, and this princess can turn into it's evil, ugly sister if sprayed too much. 
Princess is what fairy tales are made of. Wearing this makes me feel like part of a fairytale, and everything seems to end happily ever after:)

I agree with the above comment. I've always been drawn to this perfume because of the bottle, but i'm not a big fan of the scent:(. I would love to own it just because of the bottle though:p

I agree with being drawn to a perfume because of the bottle. And I also believe in no matter the recommended age wear it if you like it.
