Yummy411: Vera Wang's New Fragrance Look


VeraWangonWeddings.com: "The bold, modern, captivating scent of Vera Wang Look embraces a woman's confidence and creates a seductive effect through complex textures and layers of fragrance notes.

A sparkling scent of mandarin and watery greens are layered with lush notes of lychee and golden delicious apple, filling the top note with a burst of energy and freshness. The vibrant floral bouquet of lily, freesia and jasmine envelopes with femininity. A natural sensuality is enhanced in the drydown with the richness of vanilla and skin musk. Touches of oakmoss and patchouli create balance. "

Vera Wang is taking a break from catering to the younger crowd with her Princess fragrances to welcome back in the simplistic, but established mature woman that she reached out to in her earlier fragrances. Look can be described as a vibrant floral with a touch of musk (a fruity floral for the mature woman perhaps?) In comparison, the first two Vera Wang scents were more subtle and soft. This new scent is a cousin with a touch more personality; a bit more striking, yet refined and sophisticated. Even the bottle is simple classic, but edgey unisex. When I wore this, I instantly thought of Philosophy's Amazing Grace which is in the same floral with musk family. The top notes don't last long and the drydown and bottom notes linger wrapping you in the vanilla, musk, oakmoss and patchulli. If you are into the likes of Philosophy's Amazing Grace or Carolina Herrera's 212, you'll be sure to like this new juice from Vera Wang. Purchase it here. So far, only the 1.7 oz and 3.4 oz bottles are available in the U.S.

Here's Vera on the meaning of 'Look':

I need to try it. The original Vera Wang is also very pretty but a little bit too mature for me, Princess is too young though. May be this one is "just right" (like in Goldilocks and the Three Bears!)
