Vera Wang Princess Review

Sometimes, we all want to be a princess (well, at least feel like one), and that includes wearing lots of pink, tons of glitter, possible bling, and a sweet scent.  Vera Wang Princess is that perfect lovely perfume that makes me smile every time I put it on.  Realistically, I don’t find it suited for daily wear because of the youthful scent, but Princess perfume is great for a girls’ night out, a playful date, and just-because walks in the park.  This sheer scent has a mix of whimsical notes and floral accents - combined with the golden crown cap of the bottle, I’m ready to wear ball gowns, sing to tiny forest animals, and start some magic.

The Vera Wang Princess perfume is a blend of water lily, lady apple, mandarin, and apricot with notes of dark chocolate and vanilla - basically this perfume reminds me of freshly baked cupcakes.  The scent is not overpowering yet has longevity so the perfume will wear for approximately five hours.  The perfume is also quite affordable for 1.7 ounces costing $60 at Sephora and a bottle will last for some time because of the perfume’s staying power.  While the scent is not too nauseatingly young (think high-school hallways), it still has a youthful and fresh feel.

Vera Wang Princess is not as much of a complex scent and the notes are easily discernible - because of this, the perfume is not quite appropriate for all occasions.  However, if you try the perfume and are unhappy with the scent, Vera Wang has created several other variations that may be more pleasing… and still make you feel like a princess.

Lovely purple and gold packaging - fit for a royal princess
Vera Wang Princess - feminine and whimsical scent

    I love Princess - it’s not obtrusive or cloying. I always get compliments when I wear it. I was so glad to see your review!

      you’re totally right about the scent not being overpowering - I always get people asking what it is or people recognizing it haha
