Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Enchanted Perfume

Originally, I asked for MAC lippies but lo and behold there's no  MAC counter at Doha duty free where hubby got me the Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Enchanted Perfume.

I really wanted lippies but since the brand I asked for is not available, hubby volunteered if I want a perfume instead. Frankly, I still got quite a lot of perfume bottles lying around half full, but I thought maybe hubby's thinking of a no fail homecoming gift so, I spared him the hardship and asked for the Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Enchanted perfume since I've been meaning to get one once I use up the Taylor Swift Wonderstruck.

Like the Wonderstruck, the box is so nice, this time it is in red and gold colors which makes it more elegant.

This time, at the back of the box is Taylor's photo seated in a couch in what seemed like an enchanted forest.

The fragrance

Top notes: wild berries, pink poppy, passion fruit
Middle notes: peony, sugar-glazed champaca petals, white freesia
Drydown : white musk, hypnotic vanilla, blonde woods

Like it's predecessor, it has cute charms near the cap. This one got a bird, crystal, feather and flower; aren't they cute!? If you look closely at the cap, it has a repeating pattern with Taylor's lucky number 13 engraved.

The bottle, like the original Wonderstruck, remains as vintage, treasure like and magical with its beautiful golden bottle cap and iridescent finish. It's beautiful.

Enchanted is very different compared to Taylor's first perfume. Which I think is a good thing. Some say, this is wonderstruck's 'sexier, older sister'. I agree, this would be perfect to wear on a seductive night. However, there is something in the smell that I find generic. Like, I haven't left the perfume store smell. I'm not a big fan don't get me wrong though it's not bad at all. I think I'm just used to refreshing, clean smells. This one, I find kind of sad; I think this is the sad chapter of Wonderstsuck as I find the latter fun and fresh. I am not reaching for this bottle often, I guess. Staying power is good lasts 5-7 hours.

"Wonderstruck Enchanted is the next chapter in the story of my Wonderstruck fragrance. Wonderstruck is about that moment when you instantly feel a connection to someone, but then there’s that feeling of being completely enamored — enchanted — when you know a little more about that someone and still feel that strong connection," Taylor Swift

Right, Taylor. But I find Enchanted very short of enchanting.
