Summary: I don't know if it was just an unlucky bottle I got, but the Vera Wang Bouquet perfume I ordered from Amazon did not smell right. I am very familiar with the scent of this perfume, as I've been wearing it for years and have many bottles of it. I was hesitant to buy it online (and at a considerable price discount), but it was sold by Amazon, so I trusted it. Big mistake. The bottle smelled like expired perfume with a very strong alcohol scent to it.
Summary: When Sephora stopped carrying Vera Wang's scents, I was incredibly disappointed. The positive? You can pick up old scents for less than half their original price tag. Bouquet is just that- shove your nose into a random assortment of flowers from a shop and you'll have a similar scent. The particular flower for inspiration I can't determine- I just know with a sensitive sense of smell, this is flawlessly crafted.
Summary: Bought this for my girlfriend a couple of months ago. I feel like this fragrance is very balanced and versatile. It's fresh enough that it can worn as an everyday perfume, but classy enough that would work for special occasions as well. I also love the fact that it's not too youthful, and not too old. I wouldn't recommend this for a teenager, but for a woman in her twenties and later it works very well. Good job Vera Wang on this one!
Summary: I ordered this for my wife thinking this is the perfume she wanted. What she actually wanted was Vera Wang by Vera Wang. Although this is not what she asked for, she had never smelled this before and was very happy with the scent.
