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

FORM: Eau de Toilette

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): soft musk, white rosebuds, flower, blue lily, black Pepper, hyacinth, seringa, pure gardenia, exotic woods

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.

CLASSIFICATION: floral, feminine, slightly powdery

AGE GROUP: college, slightly mature
