Vera Wang Princess

As I said in my last post, I was majorly disappointed with the christmas sales this year but I was very happy when I went into boots and managed to snap up this Vera Wang Princess fragrance gift set for half price!
RRP: £36.00 SALE: £18.00

The set contains:
  • Eau de Toilette 30ml
  • Body Lotion 75ml
  • Solid Fragrance 
  • Pencil Sharpener - for the solid fragrance (if you hadn't already worked that out!)
I was actually looking for a Prada Candy or a CK one shock gift set in the sales but unsurprisingly, they had already sold out :( Luckily though, I did manage to fight off the angry mob of shoppers and grab this, I already knew I liked it because my beautiful friend Laura has the same perfume! The fragrance itself is quite light and sweet, definitely floral and kind of exotic. It's a very feminine fragrance,  not the sort I usually go for but a perfect daytime smell! Also, I must compliment the bottle, loving the heart shape and the princess crown top! Very impressed with my purchase here, the solid fragrance is perfect to pop into my bag, I will always use body lotion, bonus when it smells this yummy and the bottle is sitting beautifully with all my other perfumes, so thank you Boots!

Also, please enjoy the photograph, it took me well over 20 minutes scouting my room for the solid fragrance pencil, don't know how I managed to misplace it, especially when I have used it everyday, several times since Monday! Typical. I really wanted it in the photo though, so it was time well spent! ;) xoxo

  7. oooooh I've always wanted to fragrance set for ages, heard so many good things about the vera wang perfumes and the bottle is just so pretty haha. In reply to your comment, I was so scared about buying a bag off ebay at first, I was so worried that it'll be cheap crappy plastic but I guess you just have to try and find a good seller with proper photos of the bag and just go for it! xx

  10. You grabbed such a steal! This is amazing. I've never seen a solid frgrance stick, what's it like? It's quite a clever idea! Well done on fighting off the mobs, it can get so mad in the sales.
    Happy New Year!
