You may have seen that I recently reviewed the gorgeous Prada Candy Florale perfume because with Summer on the way it's definitely that time to refresh our perfume caddies, out with those deep, woody scents and in with the more fresh, floral, fruity scents and today I have yet another very amazing scent to share with you that's perfect for the warmer months ahead... Say hello to Vera Wangs Princess Power*!
Vera Wangs Princess Power is the third instalment in the 'Princess' range, and is said to be an effortlessly cool and stylish scent and from looking at that packaging and that bottle alone it certainly looks like a scent that will get you noticed.
So what does Princess Power really smell like... Well in a nutshell if you like fruity, floral scents with a hint of sweetness and a pinch of girlyness for good measure then your going to love Princess Power for the up and coming Summer months. The scent opens up with top notes of Sparkling Pear, Apricot Blossom and Raspberry (cue the fruity, sweet twist), the heart of the fragrance consists of Jasmine, Rainbow Rose and Plumeria (there goes the florals) and ends with a base of Blonde Woods, Creamy Musk and Vanilla, ohhh so much fruity, floral and sweet gorgeousness he he.
When I first spritzed Princess Power I could immediately smell the sweetness of the fruits and also got a slight hint of floral, I wouldn't say it's a strong, overpowering scent but it certainly gets slightly lighter as it drys down and has a more musky vibe going on as appose to the more fruity scent that very first appears as it goes onto the skin. I must admit I really do like the fact that the scent slightly changes as it drys down as it feels like your getting two perfumes in one ha ha. The lasting power of Princess Power is pretty good, I do about 3 spritz' (wrists, neck and or course one more for luck on my clothes ha ha) and I can honestly smell that fruity/musky scent on myself most of the day. Just like Prada's Candy Florale perfume, Princess Power is very much a complimentary perfume where alot of people can smell it on me and they seem to love it and ask what I'm wearing, which again is always nice. As much as I love wearing this scent during the day (and trust me, I do all the time ha ha) I'd say it leans more towards a scent for the summer evenings, because of its musky side it just works so well at night.
As for the packaging and the bottle... It certainly has a youthful, playful vibe going on with its bold graphics and bright colour blocking prints, doesn't it! Truth be told I am a sucker for cute packaging, I tend to buy most things that look pretty and Princess Power doesn't disappoint. I absolutely love the heart shaped, glass bottle which is completely flat from the front but at the back of the bottle it feels like some sort of glass jewel and you can see the pretty pink perfume fluid inside too which is nice. The bottle is then nicely finished off with a pretty, jewelled crown lid.
Overall I do really like Vera Wang's Princess Power, it's such a lovely scent to wear during the summer months especially in the evenings when you can really take in it's musky side. I would say that it is quite a youthful scent, the packaging and the bottle also really reflect that, but then again my mums in her 50s and says she loves it!
