Taylor Swift's Taylor perfume


Country pop artist Taylor Swift has a knack for being able to sing brassy lyrics but still bat her eyes so adoringly that one would wonder who in the world would want to make her mad. But "they" do, she sings and women everywhere relate to her lyrics.

As for her perfumes, they bring to mind a variety of emotions, too.

Wonderstruck Enchanted is on the sugary side, with a candy smell.

Wonderstruck starts off smelling soft and flowery, but then it takes on a musky, stronger scent.

Taylor Swift's new perfume, named after her, is somewhere in the middle. Taylor includes top notes of lychee, tangerine and magnolia petals; middle notes of peony, hydrangea and vanilla orchid in the heart; base notes of sandalwood, apricot nectar, cashmere musk and soft woods.

Taylor has a fair fragrance balance. It's not as sweet as Wonderstruck and has a more grown-up smell. Feeling 22? Maybe around that age. The combination of other notes are somewhere between a flowery and powdery scent. This is a satisfying blend because for those who aren't a fan of scents that smell too much like a garden or too much like a makeup bag, it's geared for someone looking for something a little more diverse.

Soft. Feminine. Sultry. Kinda like the singer until an ex-boyfriend is in the mix.
