Vera Wang Look Eau de Parfum Review

In 1989 Roxette had the Look:

Or at least the juvenile Muse thought so! The floor is now open to slander Roxette’s bad hair…I’ll turn away while you do so….

Done?

Ok!

In 2008 Verg Wang Look has “the Look”, minus the bad hair of course! Vera Wang Look is a new Eau de Parfum that represents the style and passion that Vera Wang’s new Fall/Winter Fashion Line introduces for 2008-2009.

Vera Wang Look is dominantly a soft floral with notes of lily, freesia, and jasmine but other notes such as sweet vanilla, musk, and deliches apple create a sparkling soft fragrance that manages to have a sophisticated yet fun edge. I got a rather clean, crisp citrus like scent from Vera Wang Look. If you enjoy soft florals, brisk, clean blends this would be something you’d love. Vera Wang Look is ideally perfect for a day time fragrance in the Muse’s opinion. Look extends it’s clean, sparkling look to it’s packaging as the scent is held in a simple, clear prism bottle.

Taking into consideration that Vera Wang Look is an Eau de Parfum you’ll have a good long wear time on this. I used about three squirts and it extended from around 6 in the morning all the way into the evening around 7 when it started to wear down slightly but still held a rather nice touch of scent.

All in all Vera Wang Look is something worth checking out for yourself! The collection consists of the main fragrance plus additional items to layer with such as a sheer body lotion, body cream and more!

Vera Wang Look is currently available at Nordstrom’s, Bloomingdale’s, and other select department stores. Do stop in and have a sniff for yourself the Muse thinks you’ll love it!

Never one to get lost in the crowd, G leads her crew in a white, corseted top and a blue miniskirt la Alice in Wonderland. Quirky, unique, and undeniably cool, G is the leader of the pack. Her scent is an oriental, fruity, gourmand fragrance with notes of fresh coconut, jasmine, and cotton woods.

Although G has some sincerely amazing notes like Mandarin, Jasmine Sambac, Sandalwood and Coconut. Personally the Muse gets toasty coconut as the most dominant note so toasty in fact that she wants to roll around in it! The scent is quite tropical and gorgeous! It’s a creamy coconut blend with hints of jasmine and floral. Although the coconut is the most dominant note you can get certain whiffs of unique, exotic secondary notes like the jasmine and sandalwood. It’s really a rather warm fragrance that makes me think of the warm, humid Summer! G is on top of my favorite list so I love anything that has tropical aspects to it. I recommend G if you like your blends warm and fun.

Harajuku Lovers Baby Review

Nobody puts Baby in the corner!

inthecorner

Well smack my forehead that’s totally the wrong Baby isn’t it?

Oh, how the mighty have fallen! That’s the wrong Baby too!

Actually the Muse will give you some relief from all the bad Baby references by presenting you with a review of the Harajuku Girls Fragrance Baby!

Happy?

This week the Muse has been happily going through each of the new Harajuku Girl Fragrances for you! If you haven’t already best head over to my contest and enter to win a Harajuku Girls Solid Perfume Coffret!

Squee!

Now Baby is exactly what you’d come to expect from a scent named so. She’s smells exactly like a baby! Soft, powder fresh, and sweet!

One bat of her lashes and Baby has all the boys in the palm of her hand! Pretty in pink, Baby steps out in a short baby doll dress and sweet Mary Janes. Her scent is a powdery floral with notes of white rose, orange flower, and white musk.

Picture+033 300x400

Don’t get confused by her notes of white rose, orange flower, and musk because honestly she’s a purely powder scent and holds no notes of floral for me. Although the sound of a powder fresh scent may be slightly off putting for some I think it’s a rather fresh, clean smell that anyone can appreciate. Baby also happens to linger quite strongly for such a soft smell! She sweet and she’s clean and she holds that special flirty fun feel that all the Harajuku Lovers Fragrances have in common!

The Muse liked this one alot! Although Music and G remains her favorite Baby falls closely behind! By the way I actually discovered a “baby” who loves Love! Meet Mylee who’s mum runs Wake Up to Makeup! Mylee obviously thinks Love is super! Who thinks we should just give Mylee the coffret because she’s just so bloody cute!

See I wasn’t lying when I said Love was awesome!

Tried this?

Love it?

Harajuku Lovers Love Review

They say all we need is love! Personally the Muse thinks all we need is more John Lennon but hey who am I to complain?

In the case of Harajuku Lovers Fragrances it’s possible that Love may be all you need! Love like her name is sweet, romantic and sensual.

Sweet, Caring, and Free Spirited, Love is always off in her own little world. Stepping out in a cute, striped mini dress and fashionable red kicks, Love wears her heart on her sleeve, or rather in her hair! Her scent is reminiscent of a floral bouquet, with notes of pink pomelo rose and creamy vanilla orchid.

 5676809

Love starts out with hints of peach but has a slow build up of peony, rose, and jasmine to create a floral dry down that’s laden with hints of beautiful vanilla. When compared with her sisters, she happens to be on the softer side of the scents and carries a beautiful soft finish!

If you like your blends romantic and sensual with hints of soft florals Love is probably all you need! The Muse thought love was a rather beautiful blend of flowers with a tiny hint of sweet peach and a hard base of vanilla that made the blend beautiful for both day and evening! As with all the Harajuku Girls fragrances, Love does contain a good dose of fun!

Harajuku Lovers Music Review

To celebrate the Muse’s latest contest to win a Harajuku Girls Solid Perfume Coffret she thought she’d do a week in review of each Harajuku Fragrance!

I’ve already reviewed these prior but that was by nose alone considering that I had only tried out ‘Lil Angel and reviewed the other based on scent cards! I’ve since gotten the chance to test this out by spraying, smelling, and testing them out on myself so I can give a better more detail review of each blend! Yay! Each Harajuku Girl fragrance is unique and interesting to say the least! I’m starting my review today with the Harajuku Girls Fragrance Music.

 5676811

Always looking to make someone laugh, charismatic Music has no qualms telling it like it is! Stylin’ in a smocked sailor outfit and black lace-up boxing boots, Music marches to the beat of her own drum! Her scent is fruity floral with notes of pear, sweet pea, and sleek wood!

Music’s fruity base of pear dominates her fragrance but the combination of sweet pea creates a very special, unique floral blend that’s fun and lively! Although all five scents are something I savored and enjoyed I must say that I lean towards Music as topping my favorite list as she’s definitely different to say the least. Music manages to combine fun and sexy thanks to the slight woodsy vanilla note that comes out after dry down. The scent manages to last all day with 2-3 sprays which is pretty brilliant when taking into consideration these are EDT’s! Music should appeal to those who like a fresh, fruity, flirty blend.

The Muse likes this one because although it has touches of floral yet it still manages to remain sweet and the Muse is all about sweet blends! Music is a favorite for this Muse and says to give it a shot for yourself! It’s Muse Approved for purchase!
