Agree To Disagree: Vera Wang Preppy Princess

Dear Vera:

We know a lot of perfume lovers have turned up their noses at your Princess line. But we always believed in you. That vanilla/chocolate/apple/water lily? Mmm. We loved it, we still do.

When we didn't like Flower Princess, we figured it was just maybe because of that ivy note.

And Rock Princess was pretty good, darker and fruitier and muskier, even if our hearts were still with the original.

But Glam Princess? (What is a glam princess?) That pink-and-yellow Miley Cyrus style bottle was a little much for the mild scent inside, wasn't it?

And now we have Preppy Princess, and we've completed the slide from fairy-tale royalty to a teenager with a venomous Facebook habit and a triple-digit allowance whose Dad calls her "princess". It smells like an overripe red gelatin dessert and the bottle's even louder in person. And the marketing copy specifically says that the Preppy Princess girl is "the leader of a clique"? Man, we miss the days when the personality quiz on the original Princess website told girls to see the world and go to graduate school.

I have Rock Princess in the awesome black bottle and am hoarding it like that dude with all the rats on A&E. I am looking forward to giving Preppy Princess a sniff but if I buy it, I might just call it Vera Wang when asked.
