Hippie or Hime?

If I had to choose, it'd be a tough call. I like pretty, dainty things like bows, lace, bling and pink so hime style is a huge deal for me. BUT! I also like flowers (nature's bling,) peace signs and the laid-back attitude of the flower children.

Luckily, I don't need to choose- when it comes to fragrance, at least. Vera Wang's Flower Princess lets me be both princess and hippie-chick at the same time.


Flower Princess is lighter and fresher than the original Princess perfume. You can tell that's what they're going for because there are only minor differences between the two:  

They both have the same super cute heart-shaped bottle but FP is lighter and more pink than purple;


And the bottle toppers which could be worn as rings are silver instead of gold.

As for scent, some might say that FP is a watered-down version of the original Princess but I like it because - not in spite- of that.   It's subtle but long-lasting.,  more suitable for our climate,  not sickly sweet or cloying and I can wear it on the hottest day without causing headaches. When I first tried it, it reminded me a bit of Clinique Happy (another favorite.) But when I did a side by side comparison, I actually liked this better than Happy.


  1. oh me likey :D but its kind of too gur ly for me to handle hehehe :P i want a black or red vampiric bottle = boyish? hehe

  2. The packaging is better. :)

    And if I love Happy, then I probably should check this out too.

  3. Love the bottle design! If I could wear perfume, I'd totally buy this. XD

  4. @aMz88: Rock Princess has a black heart bottle, in case you're interested. =))

    @Pammy: I agree . I still love Happy, maybe I just went for FP that time because it's new to me. =))

    @Shopn'Chomp: Hi Lisa! I got this mostly for the bottle.=)) And yeah, perfume's not for everyone. I don't wear it all the time, either.

  5. i love the packaging.. i want.. though i like clinique happy din..
    but the bottle is irresistible ryt? hehe

  6. I'm loving the packaging so much!!
    So kawaii XD

    The packaging alone makes me want to buy it.


  7. @Diane: Thanks for stopping by, Ms. Diane. I love Clinique Happy. too!

    @Dana Yoshimizu: Hi Dana! Thanks for leaving a comment! I'l be honest, I'd have bought this for the packaging alone. Haha!
