Fragrance reviews are silly, but sometimes, fragrance marketing is even sillier. What do “playful pastimes” and “nostalgia” really smell like? So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our own fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk. This week, we’re testing out Be Jeweled by Vera Wang.

Fragrance: Be Jeweled by Vera Wang

What Vera Wang thinks it smells like: “A radiant fruity floral that sparkles inside and out.”

What we think it smells like:

  • A grown up and spicy version of Bath & Body Works’ Sun-Ripened Raspberry.”
  • “The kind of woman who would refer to herself as a cougar and who would drink at a lot of hotel bars.”
  • “Musty berries.”
  • “A Bath & Body Works foamy hand soap.”
  • “Fancier than Bath & Body Works.”
  • “Soap, just soap.”
  • “That sh*t my mom wears.”
  • “Mystical.”
  • “Floral, to me.”
  • “A pear.”
  • “A sexy divorcée.”
  • “Chemicals.”
  • “I taste it.”
  • “Floral and astringent.”
  • “An air-freshener replacement.”
  • “The type of perfume where if you overdid it, you’d make a lot of enemies of the subway.”
  • “Very refreshing. Citrus blossom and sandalwood.”
