Embrace the Fragrance: Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia - #VWEmbrace


This post was sponsored by Vera Wang Fragrances as part of an Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

I am a big fan of fragrances. Whenever I'm asked, "what do you want for your birthday?", or "what can I get you?", my response is almost always the same. Perfume! Nothing screams, I'm a woman, than a nice smelling woman. I grew up mostly in New York City, where public transportation was the norm and it can get very busy and crowded on those NYC buses and subway trains. I remember one day getting on the A train to head into the city. It was pretty early in the morning and a lady came in and sat next to me. OK, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking "well it's NYC and since the trains are always crowded, she must not have smelled that great". Au contraire, she smelled AH-MAZING and I remember asking her what fragrance she was wearing, and she said "It's Vera Wang". I knew that day that I just had to have it and I did. Now if you go into my bathroom, you'll always find a Vera Wang fragrance in there and to show that I'm not kidding, I've included a photo below. That's the most recent one and no-one is allowed to touch it EVER! However, today I want to share with you another amazing fragrance that I recently discovered. It's the Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia fragrance and must I say, it's a must have in your beauty regimen.


Notice my Vera Wang Truly Pink, while I love it and I use it sparingly whenever I'm going out on special occasions, it doesn't truly fit in a little clutch so I'm not able to reapply whenever I need a little extra spritz. I've never had to but you just never know when you're going to. The Vera Wang Embrace, in Marigold and Gardenia is, however an entirely different story and is from the Vera Wang Embrace collection. It's just the right size at 1oz and smells amazing, just as I expected any fragrance made from Vera Wang would be.


So let me tell you about the scent! I'm a big fan of fruity smells, ninety percent of my fragrances in my collection are fruity smells and the Vera Wang Marigold and Gardenia fragrance is just that. With a hint of melon, soft musk, marigold and gardenia, it's like a burst of spring. I've dedicated this fragrance as my "special occasion" fragrance and the first time I wore it, I also got asked "what are you wearing?". The soft peach color, which you can see a lot better in the photo below, is reminiscent of the first vision of sunlight, enhancing your day and leaving you feeling fresh and embracing your womanhood.


I've always been one to feel confident and most recently after turning 40, yes, I am the big 4-0, I've talked quite a bit about embracing the skin you're in. I used to feel uncomfortable dressing up and going out. I also felt uncomfortable sharing photos of myself on the blog because I thought, I wasn't beautiful enough, I wasn't skinny enough and I thought that I would have been judged. Well, no more! I'm comfortable in my own skin, I feel beautiful and I'm fabulous and when I'm wearing my Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia in it's dreamy, fruity and floral fragrance, I feel on top of the world!


So if you're in the market for a new fragrance that will leave you feeling fresh and confident all day long, look no further than the Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia available for purchase in-store and online at Kohl’s.

Let's discuss: How does wearing perfume make you feel?

  7. Wearing a perfume makes me feel more confident especially if I'm going to be out all day. I love fruity scents as well, so I'm sure I'm going to fall in love with this just like you did. Kudos to Vera Wang, she makes awesome clothes as it is, I didn't know she's talented in the perfume making area as well.

  13. This looks like such a great fragrance. When I wear perfume I will say that it makes me feel fancy. I normally just slap on some deodorant and some lotion and that's it.

    1. Hahahaha, if one of my girlfriends who still lives in NYC had talked to me about it, that's what I would think too. I've been on the train really early and sometimes late and have smelled a few people who could have use this perfume. :)

  21. I love wearing perfume, I don't go out without it. But I have only scent I wear and have been using it for years. I like it when friends or co workers they know when I am around because they can smell my perfume. :)

    1. My sister-in-law is the same way. She has a fragrance that she's been wearing for years and as soon as you smell it, you automatically think of her. It's ok to change it up once in a while though and this is a good change.

  22. I love wearing perfume. Different scents make me feel different ways. I especially love fruity scents though.

    1. Oh if you love fruity scents then you'd love this. While it's not entirely fruity, it has a mild scent that you'll love.

  23. I've been seeing this and I would love to try it! These are 2 of my favorite flowers!

  24. I don't wear perfume very often but I do enjoy wearing it for special occasions because it makes the occasion feel even more special. My birthday is coming up and maybe I will mention this perfume when I am asked for gift ideas from my husband.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh most certainly, try throwing some hints out right now. My husband isn't good at taking hints though so maybe you might just want to say it outright. "I WANT THE VERA WANG EMBRACE COLLECTION AVAILABLE AT KOHLS". :)

      Delete
  25. I love Dior myself. I love their floral fragrances and I think I'm more of a collector. It takes me forever to finish one bottle and I have about a dozen stacked up on my counter right now. My husband complains that he has perhaps 2 of his and the rest are all mine. XD

  26. I honestly don't wear perfume very much. I think it is because my mom doesn't. I have always wanted to get more into them.

  27. The notes of rose, mandarin orange and damask rose make this perfume very pleasant and refreshing. After reading your review I think I will buy this perfume for my wife. Thanks for sharing this review.
