Versace Bright Crystal

NOTES (as listed on sephora.com): iced accord, yuzu, pomegranate, peony, magnolia, lotus flower, acajou, vegetal amber, musk

I had heard of Versace Bright Crystal (and even had smelled it) before, but I must not have gotten a very good whiff, combined with that I didn’t get to smell it on my own skin (a co-worker brought it in, but I was already wearing perfume; I only got to smell it on other girls), because it didn’t leave a lasting impression. Upon receiving a sample of it a few days ago, I was eager to test it on myself. I was very pleasantly surprised!

CLASSIFICATION: feminine, clean, floral

Vera Wang Flower Princess

NOTES (as listed on sephora.com): Green Ivy, Tangerine, Water Lily, Orange Flower Petals, Moroccan Rose, Jasmine Sambac, Riviera Mimosa, Apricot Skin, Amber, Woods, Musk.

I had tested the original Vera Wang Princess, but was not impressed; for one thing, I was not expecting a floriental fragrance from something that was marketed for an extremely young age group. I read about Vera Wang Flower Princess, and was intrigued. Supposedly, Vera Wang created this fragrance for the Japanese market, which likes lighter, sweeter fragrances according to the review I read. As a result, Vera Wang Flower Princess became available for a limited time in the United States, and I took the plunge before it was too late.

CLASSIFICATION: Soft, feminine, and flowery.

AGE GROUP: college

SIMILAR SCENT(s): Flower Princess vaguely reminds me of J.Lo Glow, just with a much more floral twist

Guess New

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): amber, freesia, tangerine, muguet, green apple, peach, peony, musk

I bought this on a whim, with a gift card that was going to expire. I wanted to smell it prior to purchase, as I hadn’t even so much as READ about it at that point, but there was no tester. Since I had to spend the gift card or lose it, I went ahead and got it. Quite the opposite of my Wrapped With Love purchase, Guess New went down in history as one of my best “uneducated” perfume purchases.

CLASSIFICATION: clean, fresh, feminine
