At the suggestion of my wife, who considered that Vera Wang was left aside in my latest posts, I accepted to sniff Look as the subject of a new test. This fragrance was introduced in November 2008 as a feminine chypre floral scent and was developed by perfumer Annie Buzantian.
I admit that at first, being used to the connection between Vera Wang’s perfumes and her bridal line, I was surprised to find out that Look is reportedly associated to the ready-to-wear line of the company, being “the Princess’ sophisticated older sister”, as described by the press release.
Later, as I was about to find out, Look proved to be a pleasant scent with floral and fruity notes. The opening of the fragrance brought forward an aroma of fresh fruits combined with a hint of citrus. The listed top notes encompass mandarin, water greens, litchi and golden apples. Then, after a period of approximately 15 minutes the mid development phase reveled a soft floral facet of Look, substantiated by a combination of lily, freesia and jasmine. A little surprised by its moderate lasting power, the final phase was reserved for a musky woody base, obtained from blending notes of patchouli, oak moss, sweet vanilla and musk.
The bottle that holds Look is made from transparent glass and if you’ll look closer you will observe the light grey edges, while the name Look appears printed in an orange shade approximately at the center of the flask. The perfume is geared at the woman interested in fashion, style and the way of life promoted by Vera Wang’s creations.
