If you're looking for a pretty, simple, and understated fragrance (that won't break the bank!) I've found it in the new Vera Wang Embrace Collection, Vera Wang Embrace Rosebuds and Vanilla perfume.
This was a real pleasure to reach for on a daily basis. It's simple in that the roses and warm vanilla are the prominent notes throughout. (The opening notes for me were more vanilla than rose). But there's a little added touch in some of the fresh notes like orange blossoms that linger throughout, along with warm musk with the dry down.
I loved the fresh, creamy feel that this gave me as it warmed up during the day. The rose and vanilla never got too sweet or powdery - it remained fresh and clean. The dry down was warm with musk and sandalwood, but still very soft and worked well with the lingering floral notes on my skin.
This is a great all-season fragrance, and I got fairly good lasting power from it, with it going at least 4+ hours before having to touch up. Vera Wang Embrace Rosebuds and Vanilla is an pleasant, wearable fragrance that can take you from day to night, the office, weekends or dinner.
It's not overly complex or unique, but it really hits the mark as a fresh, feminine fragrance that's very attainable, price wise (and smells a lot more expensive than it is by the way).
Very pretty, classic bottle too! - RLB
