The Scent:
Forever Vera is described as an elegant floral musk.

Top Notes: White Peach, Gardenia, Coconut Water
Middle Notes: Orris, Lilac, Rum
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Tonka Beans, Musk

Forever Vera is a very balanced floral scent. I personally can't really detect the peach or coconut water as the gardenia, orris, and lilac takes over my nose almost immediately after spraying. However, because of the addition of rum and base notes, the floral scent isn't nauseatingly sweet. The warmth of the tonka beans, musk, and sandalwood rounds out the floral notes very nicely. The wear is decent, I get about around six hours.

I think this one will appeal to fans of florals that don't necessarily want something that's too sweet or feminine as the lovely base notes subdues the florals, making this scent very warm and inviting.

Vera Wang fragrances are available in stores at, Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs, and Jean Coutu.
