Princess Night by Vera Wang

Princess Night by Vera Wang
Introduced in 2011 by Vera Wang, this romantic fragrance hit the shelves in January of 2012. Princess Night is best described as a spicy yet oriental fragrance that includes fruity, floral, and woody notes. What do I think about this perfume?

PROS

The top note is definitely a warmer note. It is a combination of sugar with a hint of vanilla and cocoa. The raspberry note is very evident in this fragrance, which I love. I can smell several other fruity notes that remind me of a combination of cherry and honey dew. The fact that it is more fruity than anything else makes me really love this perfume.

I am not a fan of musk notes, but what makes me enjoy this fragrance is that the musk note is very subtle in this fragrance. The jasmine and rose notes really bring this fragrance together along with the woodsy scents.

The bottle is something to not only love, but appreciate. It is heart-shaped, covered with dark glitter. The cap resembles a silver crown with a hint of bling. This makes the bottle novelty chic.

After applying this fragrance early in the morning, it lasted 12 hours and still managed to last an additional 3 hours on top of that. The scent life of this perfume is fantastic.

The sillage is moderate, as it isn't overpowering at all. In fact, you will get compliments more so than any criticism.

Personally, I think anyone would love this fragrance because it is one of those that is great for anyone. Although it is very different from Aquolina's Pink Sugar, there are some similarities in note collaborations that make this fragrance a lot like that one.

CONS

If you are into musk notes, as well as, intense floral notes; you may not find Princess Night appealing. If you are prefer clean scents or if you are into extremely fruity or citrus fragrances, you may not like this perfume. If you enjoy earthy notes, you will not find this fragrance appealing.

Not every fragrance in the world is for everyone, so if you are into mature scents that emphasize on using musk, woody, and powder notes or you are into uni-sex scents that combine various floral, woody, and spicy notes; I don't think this Vera Wang addition will interest you.

RATING - 92%

Vera Wang's Princess Night is available at FragranceNET for $48.19. Would I use this fragrance again? Absolutely. In fact, I just sprayed some 20 minutes ago. Would I recommend this fragrance to a friend? Yes, especially to those that love fruity yet warm scents. For more information about this product, please visit FragranceNET today.

Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture

Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture
Introduced in 2008 by Juicy Couture, this fruity floral fragrance proves why it is one of the best selling perfumes of all time. Viva La Juicy is infused with just the right amount of notes to give this acquired scent the recognition it needs. But the main question is: what do I think about this fragrance?

PROS

When I first smell Viva La Juicy, I can definitely smell a warm note. It reminds me of vanilla yet cocoa with a hint of praline, sugar, and caramel. The gourmand scents are evident, but not like some of their other fragrances. The next notes I detect are more fruity than anything else. A combination of berries. I can smell a hint of blueberry yet a hint of blackberry. As I continue smelling this amazing fragrance, I can pick up quite a few floral notes which are modestly faint, but hold the fragrance together. I can definitely smell honeysuckle followed by gardenia.

I can detect a little bit of citrus, but it's very mild. I can pick up on a few other floral notes. I am not sure what they are, but I am guessing a fusion of amber and jasmine. I can also smell somewhat of a woody note. I am going guess sandalwood; however, I could be wrong. In all actuality, this acquired smell is one of the best smells I have discovered yet.

The bottle includes the Juicy Couture label which is very classy yet stylish. It is accented with a bright pink/fuchsia bow which makes it cute. It is also eye catching and when you are done with the fragrance, you could spray it with some glitter blast and it would make an excellent bedroom accessory (just an idea).

Back to this fragrance. I have to say, one thing that was very evident was how long this perfume lasted. After working an 8 hour day, I noticed that I could still smell this fragrance on me. The scent life and longevity is quite decent which I truly enjoy. I've tried so many fragrances and you wouldn't believe how many perfumes smell amazing, but do not last long.

The sillage is not overpowering, which is nice. It's enough to get compliments more than anything. And a little goes a very long way.

CONS

If you are into musky scents or prefer powdery, aromatic, woody, aldehydic, spicy, or even leather notes you are not going to like this fragrance. If you are into fresh or clean fragrances that possess more earthy notes that are more animalistic or smoky, I don't see you finding this fragrance appealing.


If you are looking for an extremely sweet fruity fragrance or something that morphs tropical and citrus into the blend, I don't think you may find Viva La Juicy interesting.
