Summertime Fragrance with Vera Wang Embrace…

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

One of my favorite things about summer is having date nights.  I love being able to get dressed up in a cute dress, some wedges, makeup and splash of perfume.  When it comes to perfume, I am extremely picky (as I think one should be) when choosing which scent is right for me.  Choosing a perfume can be tricky because it can smell completely different on one person than the other, so you really need to make sure it compliments you.  I just finished my last bottle, and this Vera Wang Embrace perfume came just in time!  If you haven’t heard of the Embrace collection before, it comes in 4 different scents- Rose Buds and Vanilla, Periwinkle and Iris, Green Tea and Pear Blossom and the newest one; Marigold and Gardenia

I received the Marigold and Gardenia, and the scent is absolutely perfect for summer.  It’s a dreamy, light, fruity and floral combination which draws inspiration for a summertime picnic or date night under the stars.  I can pretty much put bets on it that this scent will leave you feeling super fresh, confident, and beautiful in your own skin, all at the same time!  One thing I like most about this scent, is that it stays on pretty much all day without having to reapply.  Since everyones skin chemistry is completely different, mine being where with most perfumes I need to reapply after every couple hours, this one really works well for my skin type.  I noticed that after spraying it in the morning before work, I could still smell it on my skin by the time I got home in the evening.  My boyfriend even asked me if what I was wearing was new, because he loved how it smelled!

The whole Vera Wang Embrace collection is super affordable (each bottle only costing $29.99) and each one is available at your local Kohl’s store (or online).  I have teamed up with Influence Central & Vera Wang to give TEN lucky readers a chance to win an entire set (including all 4 scents)!  The contest runs now through July 12th, so if you’re feeling lucky enter for a chance to win below!

    My hubby usually buys me a new fragrance every year, either for my birthday or Christmas. I will have to hint to him that I want to try this one next.

  8. Fragrances can be so hard to describe in words. You've done such a beautiful job, I feel like I can smell it. I really love your "date night under the stars" reference.

  10. Whenever I tried a new fragrance I always try it with the tester first, If I found it pleasant then I bought the original perfume. I never tried the Vera Wang Embrace perfume before. Fragrantica says that, it is a great perfume. Hopefully, I will smell that in my local store. Thanks for sharing this review.
