I’m well into my staycation two weeks off so I thought what better time to give myself a break from the world by spritzing on a new fragrance. I’m spending my time walking through museums, galleries, hanging out at High Park and eating at some yummy restaurants that I have been meaning to check out. Why not make some holiday memories with a new scent?
With Vera Wang “Embrace” Periwinkle and Iris fragrance I felt instantly soothed, replenished but also invigorated to make good use of my time off and check in with myself. The bergamot and mandarin orange scents remind me of a steeping cup of tea and the violet, iris, jasmine and periwinkle; base notes are vanilla, benzoin makes me feel like I’m in a perpetual garden even though the Fall is all around me.
Try out Vera Wang “Embrace” Periwinkle and Iris the next time you are your local cosmetic counter. It is well worth the investment in a quality fragrance to take you into the holidays on the right note.
