BEAUTY REVIEW: Vera Wang Preppy Princess Fragrance

Vera WangAs soon as summer hits we’re excited to trade our winter fragrances for something more light and fresh. This year, fashion designer Vera Wang has added Preppy Princess to her fragrance line and we were curious to see if it would be the ideal scent for summer.

THE HYPE: The latest in Vera Wang’s popular Princess fragrance line, Preppy Princess promises to take you “where downtown meets uptown.”

THE TEST: Will this fruity scent tap into our natural girly sensibilities or will Preppy Princess overpower us out of the neighbourhood altogether?

THE VERDICT: It’s love at first sight, or should we say smell. Preppy Princess is the perfect scent for the feminine girl, who wants to feel beautiful but doesn’t need to be the centre of attention. It’s pretty and makes a statement without being bold or overpowering. It’s fruity scent (with notes of tangerine, red apple, berries, honeysuckle, jasmine and coconut water) has a powdery looseness about it. It doesn’t smell like a fruit explosion. It’s sweet and sexy, classic, but fresh and timeless in it’s scent. Bottom line: it left us feeling like princesses all day long.

Preppy Princess is available at Sephora for $60.
