Be Jeweled is the newest fragrance release from Vera Wang and when it landed on our desks here at Fragrance Direct, we were more than excited to have a peek at this highly anticipated perfume.
If you haven't purchased a Vera Wang fragrance before, then you might be asking 'Why should I look forward to this fragrance?' and 'Why should I try it?' Vera Wang is one of those brands that when you hear their name, you expect something a little bit different. Besides their attractive and let's just say it, 'cool' bottle designs, it's the face behind the fragrance that built up its amazing reputation.
To cut a long story short, Vera Wang is cool. Very, very cool. She started out in fashion as a wedding dress designer and has clothed celebrities such as Kim Kardashian on her wedding day (even if she was only married for 72 days, ouch!). Her fan base now spans across the world, so it's only natural that she would want to expand her incredible talent further.
And then came the fragrances. There are now six scents within the Vera Wang fragrance family. All are unique and striking. So there was a lot of anticipation as to how Be Jeweled would compare when it eventually arrived.
Well, it's just as good. We're big fans of the packaging. Like any typical girl, the ladies in the Fragrance Direct office quickly became fans of this extraordinary bottle. With the top of the bottle covered in contrasting gems, Vera Wang Be Jeweled instantly becomes likeable.
Even when we've used up every last drop of this perfume, the bottle will have a well earned place on our dressing table. It's far too pretty to ever throw away. It's almost an accessory in itself and is ideal for popping into your handbag. Whether you're hopping on a train, bus or plane, when taking this out of your luggage, Be Jeweled is bound to attract some attention.
If Be Jeweled was a song, we think it would be 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' because that's what Be Jeweled is all about. It was inspired by a carefree lifestyle and represents being able to leave your worries at the door. When you wear this scent, you'll feel glamorous and ready for what the day has in store.
I wouldn't call myself the ultimate girly girl but the glitz and glam of the Be Jeweled fragrance is too contagious for even me to ignore.
The All Important Ingredients
Vera Wang Be Jeweled contains notes of red currants mixed with a splash of champagne. We'll cheers to that! Like Vera's previous fragrances, flowers are never too far away from a Wang perfume. A flirtatious peony bouquet also features as a key ingredient in Be Jeweled and gives the perfume a soft and sweet element that lies gently on the skin.
Be Jeweled is a light and summery fragrance so don't shy away from topping this perfume up during the day. If you want it to last longer, don't forget to apply it to pulse points. The well known ones are your wrists and neck, but you can also apply a spot of perfume to the back of your knees and even lightly spritz it onto your hair brush before brushing. This distributes the fragrance easily without weighing your hair down with lots of oil and grease.
Vera Wang Be Jeweled is perfect for the younger generation. It's flirty, it's playful and the bottle is modern and glamorous. It's definitely a fragrance that will quickly be doing the rounds on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram because to have it, instantly gives you major cool points.
