Some people were first mistaken on the first time meeting Vera Wang Rock Princess. Since it is named ‘Rock’ and the packaging theme is all black and white, it may seem like a fragrance for rock chicks. However, it turns out to be quite the opposite. Vera Wang Rock Princess is not a fragrance for a rock chick, it is actually more suitable for young girls who love sweet and innocent smells. It is a sweet, flowery, and sugary scent.
About the Product
This perfume is produced by Vera Wang, an American fashion designer whose company has produced not only gowns and fashion products, but also jewelry, products for home, and fragrances. Vera Wang Rock Princess is definitely not the first try of the company. Vera Wang Rock Princess was introduced to the market for the first time in April 2009. The perfumer behind the fragrance is Calice Becker from the Givaudan perfume house. It is described as “a fragrance that showcases the rebellious side of the princess”, but, as we mentioned in the opening paragraph, this perfume is not exactly that. There are some notable hints in the scent, but the overall of this scent is nothing rebellious.
Still, the packaging alone is successful in creating an unorthodox aura. The box is colored in black, whereas the text and images are printed in white. It definitely looks mysterious, dark, and alluring. The packaging alone may have a rebellious character in it. Nevertheless, after opening the box, the sweet heart-shaped glass bottle eases the tension a little. Actually, the heart-shaped glass bottle also has similar characteristics as the packaging box, but not as bold. The glass bottle has a faux stone motif. It is semi-translucent, as you can slightly see the sweet liquid inside. The glass bottle is paired with a crown stopper cap that appears luxurious. You can find studded rhinestones on the cap, which make it appear royal and elegant.
Vera Wang Rock Princess opens with a fresh fruity combination of raspberry, peach, and bergamot notes. However, the opening does not last long, at all. The fragrance quickly unfolds the middle notes and then the base notes. The middle notes are all flowery notes, featuring heliotrope, rose, jasmine, and lily. However, these flowery notes are not dominating. Instead, it is the base notes that dominate the overall scent, with the cashmere wood and musk being the most prominent notes. There is also a noticeable presence of coconut and iris notes behind the base notes.
Vera Wang Rock Princess is a good teen scent, but there is nothing particularly special or outstanding about it. However, it is a very versatile scent that is suitable for almost any moment. The sillage is moderate, as the scent only spreads within an arm’s reach. The longevity is also relatively moderate. It can last for over three hours. So, it is best used right before you go out, if you don’t want to re-apply the fragrance in a few hours. Vera Wang Rock Princess can be a good choice if you like a sweet, floral, powdery scent.
