Vera Wang Sheer Veil

[ Edited ]

Vera Wang's Sheer Veil has been my signature fragrance for the last few years. I absolutely adore it. It was floraly without smelling like someone's grandmother or being overpowering. I must have purchased some right before it was discontinued, though, because when I came back to order more in the fall, I discovered that I couldn't find it at Sephora or ANYWHERE! I recently ordered some from Overstock, but it was green instead of purple and the smell did not last longer than 10 minutes. So, alas, I am now searching for a new fragrance. I would prefer something that smells similar to Sheer Veil, which had fragrance notes of gardenia, creamy lavender, champagne rose, dream rose, dewy violets, white lilies, and white stephanotis. Any recommendations? What are those who were wearing Sheer Veil wearing now?

Re: Vera Wang Sheer Veil

Diana, I'd actually looked at the last two you recommended, but I was afraid they would be too overwhelming. The beautiful thing about Sheer Veil is that it was just that--a light, crisp floral. (Can you tell I'm still in mourning?) Do you consider these to be lighter fragrances?

Re: Vera Wang Sheer Veil

I loved the Sheer Veil too! I would say the Tocca and Philosophy (especially the Philosophy toilette) may be the lightest and closest, but try to visit a store to get a few samples and try them out. You are always welcome to return any items that don't work out for you even if you have used them lightly. 

 

(ps I had to move your post since our boards were having a slight error in letting us reply!) :smileyhappy: 

 

Try even the Bvlgari Omnia green jade which has that crisp floral scent too :smileyhappy:
