When it comes to buying gifts for me, my husband is hopeless. He often gets it so wrong. Most of the time, to make things easier for him, I just tell him what I want. This includes Valentines, birthdays, anniversary and of course Christmas. This year however, because I’d already received an early gift in the form of a DSLR camera, I wasn’t expecting anything else.
I was pleasantly surprised though when I was given the Vera Wang Princess EDT on Christmas Day. The last time he bought me perfume for Christmas I was pregnant with CeCe and hated the smell ( Calvin Klein Euphoria ). Every time I smelt it I’d run straight to the bathroom to vomit. Till today, I cannot smell that perfume without feeling queasy. The power of smell is amazing.
This time round however, I have no bun in the oven so my nose welcomes new scents with glee. When it comes to perfumes I am not your girly girl. I’d rather opt for a more masculine scent like my all time favourite Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey ( which by the way is for men ). Although I wouldn’t have bought this for myself, I do like the scent. It is ideal for everyday use as its sweet but not sickly. A couple of spritz lasts all day. The scent is a mixture of a mixture of waterlily, apple, mandarin meringue, and golden apricot skin, dark chocolate, amber, musk, and vanilla.
The packaging is actually what I really like about the Vera Wang Princess EDT. I am currently going through a lilac obsessed phase and this fits right in with everything else. The heart shape bottle sits well on a shelf. The set I received came with a little roll on which fits into the smallest bag and wallet.
