The scent of a woman is a very personal thing. It says something about who we are, which is why deciding on the perfect scent that says “Hello World this is me!”, can be a real challenge.
The possibilities available are endless, making it even harder to walk into a store and grab the ideal smell for yourself on the first try. What normally happens is after a spritz here and a spritz there, you walk away with a headache and no idea which perfume you sprayed where. So when given the opportunity to offer a fun giveaway to my readers with the chance to win 3 different perfumes from Vera Wang Embrace, I took it.
This new collection of perfumes called Vera Wang Embrace provides women with 3 select scents that all embrace the essence of flowers. These floral fragrances are soft and subtle making them perfect for the woman who prefers not to let her perfume overpower who she is.
Vera Wang Embrace
Vera Wang Embrace Rose Buds and 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.

Vera Wang Embrace Periwinkle and Iris

Out of the three perfumes I tried, the Vera Wang Embrace Green Tea and Pear Blossom ended up being my personal favorite. It was actually a pleasant surprise for me. Going off of the names and ingredients alone, I would have thought that the Periwinkle and Iris would have been the one I chose. Even more surprising was that it turned out to be my least favorite of the three.
As I mentioned at the beginning of my post, a woman’s scent is a very personal thing. What my body chemistry does with one scent, may be completely different on another woman. I loved having the ability to give all three fragrances from the collection a try and decide for myself what worked and what didn’t.
While I don’t think that any of the 3 will become my signature fragrance, I will definitely use the Green Tea and Pear Blossom to mix things up.
You can find the Vera Wang Embrace Collection Green Tea and Pear Blossom & Rose Buds and Vanilla at your local Walmart store.
The Vera Wang Embrace Periwinkle and Iris can be found in your local Target stores.
Of course if you were paying attention, I am also offering a giveaway of the entire Vera Wang Embrace Collection to one of my readers. That is a $90 value!
