After a long break, I am back and I feel truly awesome writing here again .Today, I am reviewing one of my favorite perfumes, Taylor Swift Wonderstruck! I am a perfume addict and I am a sucker for unique and catchy design and packaging in terms of bottles. It was the same reason why I bought this perfume. It was a blind, almost impulsive buy which I am glad about, because I was impressed right at first sight of the very packaging 😛 . Read on to find out if I liked the potion in the brilliantly designed bottle.
About Taylor Swift Wonderstruck:
Just like her creative approach to song writing, every element is authentic; embracing all that is special about Taylor. Wonderstruck is an awe-inspiring feeling. It could be a connection with someone or a rush you get when you experience something magical. Wonderstruck is also a lyric in the song “Enchanted” on Taylor’s album, Speak Now. In this fragrance, a charming and sparkling surprise of vibrant fruits kisses a bouquet of soft petals and a touch of sweet indulgence.

My experience withTaylor Swift Wonderstruck EDP:
Right from the case carrying the perfume to the bottle itself, the packaging deserves all the love :P. The design on the bottle is of pearly finish which shows off an array of beautiful colours when light reflects on it. It’s a delight to just watch the bottle when I am totally jobless.
The bottle is made of glass and carries 3 adorable charms of a bird, birdcage and a star. I am not sure what this symbolizes but whatever it is, I fell in love with the very sight of it. That said, the packaging is not too girly or childlike, rather it looks very sophisticated and charms makes it look vintage-y. The spritzer which is housed inside the gorgeous gold detailed lid works perfect. Since the bottle is made of glass, I carry the perfume in an atomiser which comes in handy for re-applying.
I was awestruck and majorly wonderstruck at the first spritz. This perfume reminds me of a faintly decorated floral basket which has a concoction of vanilla essence and whipped cream at the base and ripe raspberries and sandalwood placed on top of the creamy base. The fragrance totally lifts my mood instantly and when the top notes settle down, the warm creamy vanilla along with a combination of raspberry and sandalwood becomes more prominent. It smells totally divine and comforting right from the initial spritz until it fades away completely.
Having said that, it is sweet but not sickeningly sugary sweet. The sweetness comes through only due to the presence of vanilla and sandalwood whereas the fun element comes from the raspberry note and there is something more which faintly smells of a floral note rounded with honey. Yes, when it comes to reviewing a perfume, I become a major critic :P.
Longevity and Sillage:
The longevity of the perfume is moderate. It stays for 3 to 4 hours on my skin and fabric, after which it fades almost completely.Therefore it is not as long lasting as some of other perfumes I own. However I have no complaints since love is blind and I am in love with wonderstruck :P.
The sillage of the perfume is strong for first 1 hour, after which it starts mellowing down, but still sticks to your skin for few more hours.
The perfume is neither too heavy for summers nor too mild and light for winters. Hence, it can be worn during any season and also for any occasion since it doesn’t bother anyone’s nose. It is fun-flirty and sophisticated-sexy in its own sweet way.
Overall, the fragrance of this perfume is a perfect and divine blend of various notes put in a gorgeous bottle, which is completely enjoyable. Also, be ready to receive loads of compliments when you have this on.
Lastly, summing up the Pros and Cons:
Pros of Taylor Swift Wonderstruck EDP:
• Unique and gorgeous packaging.
• Fun-flirty-sophisticated and warm fragrance which completely amazes anyone who enjoys the above mentioned notes.
• The scent lasts for a decent 3 to 4 hours.
• Perfect for all the occasion and seasons.
• Does not irritate the skin at all.
• Does not stain clothes.
Cons of Taylor Swift Wonderstruck EDP:
• Not available in retail stores in India, therefore no access for testers.
• The longevity might be a con for someone who prefers a long lasting perfume but not for me.
• Not travel-friendly since no one would be willing to shatter this awesome piece.
