Lovestruck!

On Wednesday, I was super lucky and extremely flattered to be invited to the exclusive press launch of the latest Vera Wang fragrance, 'Lovestruck'.


If you didn't catch the flurry of tweets flying around on the day, the face of the new fragrance and star of Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester was in town for the launch, making a personal appearance in Harrods (which I hear was manic!) before heading over for afternoon tea with us at the stunning Corinthia hotel.

After a quick interview on the bright pink peony-covered stage, Leighton and Vera Wang herself came round to each table to say hello to everyone.


They were both incredibly beautiful and polite. Leighton is every bit as beautiful in real life and I honestly cannot believe Vera is 61, she looks incredible!


But on to what you all really want to know about... the fragrance!


As I'm sure you'll agree, the bottle is absolutely stunning. I'd seen pictures of it before the launch and wasn't disappointed by it in real life. Sometimes these things look great online, but feel kind of tacky in the flesh... this isn't the case. The beautiful purple flowers and tulle bows make this the ultimate statement for your dressing table (but not the most practical for your handbag I must say!)


As you can imagine, as I was spraying this for the first time, I was praying to like it... and I couldn't have been happier when I first smelt it. It's exactly the kind of fragrance I go for...

The scent is very sweet and girly but has something a little more interesting to it than your usual super sweet aimed-at-teens perfumes. If you liked the original Vera Wang 'Princess' I think you'll love this. It's a similar fragrance but a tiny but more grown up. With top notes of pink guava and angelica flower, mid notes of delicate tuberose and a base of precious woods it's sweet and youthful but not too overpowering.

Leighton's dress from the ad campaign was also there... gorgeous and teeny-tiny!

This perfume is without a doubt my favourite release this year. I absolutely love the fragrance itself and it would take something really special to beat that bottle don't you think?

Lovestruck is available now in Harrods, and nationwide from 26th June, prices from £35. If you get the chance, please try this - I absolutely love it!
