Vera Wang’s new collection of fragrances called Vera Wang Embrace features three ingredient-driven fragrances that express a modern vision inspired by intimacy and emotion, and bring to life the aspirational image of romance that Vera Wang’s heritage represents. Vera Wang Embrace Rosebuds & Vanilla, Vera Wang Embrace Green Tea & Pear Blossom, and Vera Wang Embrace Periwinkle & Iris just debuted!
Vera Wang Embrace Rosebuds & Vanilla
Embrace Rosebuds & Vanilla is a romantic floral oriental fragrance. It opens with a rich blend of Damascene Rose and Mandarin Oil which balance out the Sweet Magnolia heart. Vanilla and creamy sandalwood intertwine to create a warm finishing touch on the skin.
- Top: Rose Buds, Mandarin Oil, Damascene Rose
- Heart: Cyclamen, Blue Iris, Sweet Magnolia
- Base: Musk, Vanilla, Sandalwood
Surprisingly, this is my favorite of the three scents. While I love the scent of REAL roses, most rose fragrances are either too overpowering or too powdery reminscent of your Grandma. Vera Wang Embrace Rosebuds & Vanilla has a sparkling, effervescent quality that speaks to the modern woman, leaving Grandma in her rocking chair. The base notes of vanilla and musk come through to add a sophistication to this fragrance.
Vera Wang Embrace Green Tea & Pear Blossom
Embrace Green Tea & Pear Blossom is a modern fresh floral fragrance that opens with crisp earthy notes that bloom into a radiant heart of Peony and Orange Blossom. At the base, fresh comfort is felt as Sandalwood mingles with notes of Skin Musk for a confident finish.
- Top: Pear Blossom, Bergamot, Green Tea
- Heart: Freesia, Peony, Orange Blossom
- Base: Skin Musk, Cedarwood, Sandalwood
This scent opens heavily with the pear and bergamot notes, then settles into the base notes of cedarwood and sandalwood. The lightest of the three, it too is a feminine scent, but where Rosebuds & Vanilla has a sophisticated vibe, Green Tea & Pear Blossom is more like the girl next door.
Vera Wang Embrace Periwinkle & Iris
Embrace Periwinkle & Iris’s floral gourmand opens with a radiant entrance as Bergamot and Violet Petals mix with the tender, floral heart of Periwinkle and Iris. Vanilla and Benzoin create a sense of comfort and addiction at the base of the fragrance.
- Top: Bergamot, Mandarin, Violet Petals
- Heart: Iris, Blue Jasmine, Periwinkle
- Base: Vanilla, Benzoin, Whipped Sugar
The sweetest of the three scents, Periwinkle & Iris is VERY floral, though not overwhelmingly so. It opens with very sweet florals, then calms down and the violet and iris come out. If you are not a floral lover, skip this one and try one of the others.
Each fragrance is housed in a classically elegant glass bottle with a white linen label, giving it a clean, modern touch. I’m very impressed with the sillage and lasting power of these scents. Each fragrance lasts a good 8-10 hours on me and I LOVE that!
