Launch + Review of Carolina Herrara 212 VIP Rose

Are you on the list?

Carolina Herrara, designer extraordinare known for exquisite flattering flattering womenswear and choice name of the stars, has an exciting new addition to its fragrance line; the 212 VIP Rose. Fronted by world famous supermodel Gisele Bundchen, she is the epitome of the perfume which is equal parts sexy, confident yet subtle.

Officially launched in Tangs Plaza a few weeks ago, media guests and bloggers caught first hand glimpses of this anticipated fragrance. While we can't be in New York party scene, a cosy corner of Tangs Plaza was transformed into a mini party scene complete with its own cocktail bar.

The launch has a tres cool cocktail mini-bar where they made some pretty yummy cocktails that matched the colour of the 212 VIP Rose perfume but the alcohol content was waaaaay too high for a lightweight like me. I wished I had asked them for the recipe....

I bumped into the every lovely Gwen and we made really good use of the Instapop photo booth, which was an upgrade from your usual photobooth with its gold-framed, touch-screen features. Even the polaroid was a high quality, thick phonecard material! We simply uploaded our shots, hashtag #212VIPROSE_SG and it gets printed in a snap (pun totally intended).

And how cool is this? We get to have our bottles specially engraved with customised designs and names! Hehe I'll be honest after I saw how good Gwen's swallow design looked on her bottle I followed suit. Done by master glass artist Dominic Fronde, who finished it in a matter of minutes. Definitely a precious one for the keeping <3

So here's a first look at the Carolina Herrara 212 VIP Rose. The elegant bullet-shaped bottle was both luxe-looking and beautiful as the fragrance it contains. Open the cap, and you'll see on the bottle's rim, engraved are the words "212 VIP Rose". This is actually magnetized so you can be sure that closure is always tight.

Review: 212 VIP Rose is a sensual medley that is made up of three accords: Champagne Rosé, Peach Flower and Queen Wood. I really love that it starts off as a soft and lightly floral scent, and the base notes ends off almost powdery. It strikes a perfect balance of coying sensualness, and not too saccharine or overwhelming. The staying power I felt though, is not as strong, with the fragrance lasting about 2-3 hours before it fades off to a faint note.

This is definitely a sexy scent to wear for that date out with the boyfriend or a night out with the girlfriends, and one that really smells as great as it looks. Truly my current favourite scent to wear!
