I’m more of a tobacco, whiskey, smoky kind of perfume loving’ gal if you haven’t figured that out by now.
But every once in awhile, I want to smell like a girl. YES I DO. DON’T LAUGH AT ME. [emoji face with stuck-out tongue] And Vera Wang Be Jeweled Rouge fits that mood when it strikes!
“Vera Wang Be Jeweled Rouge is a sparkling floriental fruity fragrance. Red currants and wild berries burst with flirty fun, as the floral heart blooms with creamy vanilla orchid, adding a glamorous touch. An addictive and lasting impression lingers with a layer of creamy praline wrapped in cashmere woods.”
TOP Notes: Mandarin, Red Currant and Wild Berry
MIDDLE Notes: Vanilla Orchid, Gardenia and Peony
DRY Notes: Cashmere Woods, Skin Musk and Praline
Vera Wang Be Jeweled hits all the right girly notes for me. I actually enjoy Red Currant in fragrances a lot! One of my absolute favourite fragrances was one by Fresh called Red Currant and Basil that was discontinued. SADDEST DAY OF MY LIFE. I’ve found one for sale, but the leeches want $299 for it!!!!! Which is nuts since it was $81 originally. People suck I tell ya.
Red Currant is therefore the first scent I notice when I spritz on Vera Wang Be Jeweled Rouge and that lasts a long time which I adore. Then the vanilla and florals start to shine as your skin warms up the fragrance. It then becomes very warm and comforting when the base notes start to make their way through. Vera Wang Be Jeweled Rouge is supposed to capture the energy and excitement of “painting the town red” with a close group of girlfriends. It does remind me of that actually, and it’s the perfect scent to wear when you’re hanging with your friends, drinking wine, talking about makeup…laughing at the muppets(ok not LIZ but the rest of us), pirate-talking, drooling over GQ dwarves and Elf Kings and a high-cheekboned actor whose name sounds like Brockenbrick Cumberfinch. It’s young, playful, warm and girly and I like it!
Vera Wang Be Jeweled eau de parfum spray comes in 30 ml / $49.00 and a 50 ml / $75.00 sizes, and is available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart right now. It would make a pretty awesome last minute Valentine’s Day gift! Along with a bottle of wine, a box of chocolates, maybe some flowers and if you’re man enough, a framed pic of this guy:
Vera Wang Be Jeweled will be available at other retailers beginning in July 2014.
What’s your perfect girly fragrance?
