Coming in September 2008, Harajuku Lovers perfume by Gwen Stefani! Five scents will be released in this line, all available in two sizes (10 mL and 30 mL) and in solid perfume form (as a set of all five). Each fragrance is molded after Gwen’s four real-life Harajuku girls (Love, [Lil’] Angel, Music, and Baby). The fifth scent shall represent their leader, “G.”
The bottles are two-piece “dolls” that are molded according to their real life Harajuku counterpart, making displaying these on your vanity counter that much more fun.
Below is what you can expect out of each of these scents:
Love — a floral with notes of bergamot, pomelo (citrus, a little like grapefruit), peach, rose, jasmine, orchid and musk
Lil’ Angel — a fruity floral with with notes of different berries (raspberry, cranberry, blackberry), pineapple, rose and amber
Music — a floral with notes of clementine, pear, jasmine, sweet pea, honeysuckle, vanilla and musk
Baby — a powder musk with freesia, bergamot, rose, jasmine, musk, heliotrope, vanilla and violet
G — a food lover’s fragrance with mandarin, coconut, apple, freesia and sandalwood

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

To be quite honest, I don’t remember how I came across Goddess. I remember I had already heard of it and sampled it very briefly (a quick sniff of the nozzle), and thought it smelled fine.. then one day it had just been sprayed in the fragrance department and I was hooked. I asked what the scent was and when I was told it was Goddess, I knew it was time to go out and purchase it.
