This is a glorious, sweet, light rose fragrance that had me huffing at my wrists all day.
Spray it on and it's like you're siting in a particularly lush shrub beside a rose bush. It settles down into a Summer afternoon in a perfect garden. As time passes it actually keeps getting better! Magnificent.
Poetry In A Bottle
Vibrant fruits pop into life As an alluring garden beckons you in And in this place you loose yourself. Roses warm and surround your senses And the world feels like a better place.
What A Wonderful Surprise It Was!
Once upon a time, I went to Jarrolds in search for the perfect scent. I was greeted by a lovely display of J Malone's range, stopped for a moment and moved on a bit further down the alley. I spotted Vaara and was drawn to its packaging vivid colours. Quite funky! - I thought. I wonder how it smells... What a wonderful surprise it was & quite unexpected indeed. Vaara has surprised me. It's something completely different and rare. I think 'rare' is the right word here. And what woman does not want to smell 'rare', opulent, rich and unique? Suffice to say, I received my Vaara yesterday evening with a complimentary sample of Juniper Sling. Could one be more surprised with yet another blend of perfect scents? This one has been put down on my list of Christmas gifts! Thank you, Jarrolds for introducing me to Penhaligon's. Penhaligon's - thank you for Vaara.
A Happy Discovery!
This scent makes me smile whenever I wear it. It's a perfume to wear when I want to feel like going out in the sunshine and finding a new adventure! The quince manages to make it deliciously juicy and dry simultaneously. The rosewater is so pretty, and softens into the only rose note I would ever want to wear. No hint of artifice or the maiden-aunt-ness I associate with many rose perfumes! The florals blend wonderfully, and the spices (although this is by no means a 'spicy') add an extra slightly exotic, mouthwatering element. Vaara is an exciting, uplifting beauty of a perfume, that keeps you coming back for another sniff. Lovely!
Jet lag can be a swine, but when you arrive somewhere exotic early in the morning, or late at night, and go straight to sleep for what feels like a week it means you can awake into a rush of the senses. Vaara is like that first rush of exoticism, and the excitement that follows. A smell that evokes the east but never over powers you. It's like a walk in the chowk, a lassi on the verandah or a first taste of the days spicey delights. I love it.
I bought this fragrance for my wife and she LOVES it! And dare I say she is all the more adorable for wearing it. It smells delightful. Another triumph Penhaligons. Bravo!
