    Dear perfume-lovers, please keep your sense of humor regarding such fragrances! (This looks like it belongs next to the row of Barbies at Toys R Us or something.)

    • Robin says:

      My sense of humor is intact — I laughed out loud ;-)

  2. littlecooling says:

    Aren’t we all a bit sick of those flankers? I hope that Vera Wang (among some other companies) soon step up and do something interesting! I wonder if its because of the money trouble, the world seems to have, that they focus on the safe side?

    • Robin says:

      We are sick of them, but betcha they keep Vera Wang in the black.

  3. Didn’t someone jokingly suggest this name when she released Rock Princess? Maybe we’ll get a Goth Princess, yet.

  4. Suzanne941 says:

    My only wish is for other frags to be available in 50 ml….Chanel, are you listening?

    • ceelouise says:

      I was told by the SA at Chanel in Hamburg that they may be coming out with 75 ml Les Exclusifs for the holidays…

  5. mals86 says:

    Got big laughs out of this one. “Eclectic and edgy” is sooooo not preppy… and the packaging should have been pink and apple green, not pink and blue.

    I lived through those days. Frightening, I know! I suppose “retro preppy” is nothing like “preppy back in the day”… and that’s fine. I’m just, you know, getting older and crankier.

    • Musette says:


      That’s what I thought (after I stopped laughing)…..Vera is just slightly ‘off’ preppy – she should’ve asked Kate Spade for some advice..


      ps. congrats again on the NaNoWriMo win!!!

      • AnnS says:

        Wha?? You WON nanowrimo??? I bow down. How did you even have the time??? The only way I’d get that done is if I duct taped my finger to the “a” on the keyboard for a million lines and then wrote a final concluding paragraph. Congrats a million times over. What frag are you buying to celebrate?

    • AnnS says:

      Having lived through the horrors of pink polo shirts, I’m cranky with retro preppy too. It’s not preppy unltill there’s an Izod logo on it.

  6. Owen says:

    I’ve tried all of the princesses apart from flower princess I think.
    and I can’t remember any of them. I can vaguely recount glam princess but I remember it being what I expected or what I wanted it to be.

    the princesses would be nice but they are forgettable and the lasting power and strength of all of them is just quite pathetic. I don’t mean to be nasty but I couldn’t think of a better word. would bleak be a better word?

  7. Joe says:

    That seriously sounds like a joke.

    Preppy Princess? Really?

    After this, she really might as well release “Italian American Princess” or something.

    • aimiliona says:

      “Italian-American Princess” would be a big seller in Rhode Island.

      • Joe says:

        New Jersey as well. I know whereof I speak.

    • Tama says:

      How about Jewish-American Princess?

  8. AmyT says:

    Oh dear. This is the worst bottle yet. Anyway, don’t preppy princesses wear Ralph?

  9. prism says:

    when i think ‘preppy’ i don’t exactly think ‘eclectic’ or ‘edgy’…..

  10. CynthiaW says:

    ::looks around

    :: ducks head

    ::whispers “I kind of like the bottle”

    :: backs away slowly…

    • Tama says:

      Haha – you don’t have to hide! After all, I like the Katy Perry Purr bottle.

      • CynthiaW says:

        This is where I also have to admit that I own (and still like) the original Princess, isn’t it?

        Of course, I say that I still like it, but I haven’t worn it in a couple of years. It’s entirely possible that if I try it again, it will have gone the way of my DKNY Be Delicious and I’ll hate it.

  11. Absolute Scentualist says:

    I actually found Flower Princess really nice in a floral/honeysuckle sort of way, and liked Rock Princess as it reminded me of MJ’s Lola. But Preppy… I’m going to hold out for the Goth Princess, too.

  12. jonr951 says:

    I was at Macys yesterday and the ladies there were telling me there’s going to be a new Princess. I haven’t heard a thing. They said it was in a black bottle with sparkles. I was like, are you sure you’re not talking about the dark grey w/ sparkles Rock Princess? They said it was Night something or other. If it’s a black bottle, I might have to finally give into a Princess. : )

    • Robin says:

      Have not heard anything, but you usually know more than me! But, am quite sure they are far from done with the Princess franchise :-)

  13. jonr951 says:

    Yeah a rep confirmed Princess Night to me today. I keep forgetting if it’s Princess Night or Night Princess. It’s probably Night Princess. She said it officially launches in early January but that it will most likely show up in-store just in time for xmas. She said it’s along the lines of Rock Princess. I don’t care for Rock that much so I’m hoping she’s wrong. Haha. Oh and she said Bang Bang is coming next yr! Dang it! Haha. : )

  14. TwistedOrchid says:

    You know, I’m actually rather fond of how this smells. (Didn’t try it on, though. Not a clue when it settles like.) But I can’t imagine anyone over the age of 9 walking around wearing something called Preppy Princess. IMHO, it smells pretty nice. It’s a shame I refuse to wear it.
