“Lovestruck is about the emotion and rush you feel when you are falling in love and going for it… those heart-pounding moments of spontaneity”- Vera Wang

Lovestruck smells like love, and makes me wanna be in love. I love, love, love it!

I’m completely and utterly in love with this fragrance. Vera Wang has definitely taken things to a whole new level with this one. I have never smelled anything like this before and was hooked upon first sniff… it takes all of my power not to drown myself in it.

Lovestruck is inspired by a modern day twist on Romeo & Juliet, and captures the feeling of a woman who is struck by love and captivated by passion.

What’s in it? Pink guava, mandarin, tuberose, lotus bloom, precious woods and sheer musk… it’s so amazing.

The packaging is just beautiful! “Young in spirit and classic”, the bouquet of flowers and tulle bow… genius.

I MUST get my hands on the lotion and shower gel, and then maybe another bottle of the perfume… You should too.

Thanks to Coty for sharing the L-O-V-E.

peace and love
