It needs to be small so that it can be carried easily she thought. It needs to be something small and light and cute. She had not seen her sisters for months and was travelling to the UK to meet them. Their birthdays had just passed and she had not given them any presents yet.
She walked past a perfume store. Suddenly she saw the most adorable sight. Tiny little bottles of perfume in all shapes and colors lined the shelves behind glass doors. This is perfect. A bright sign caught her eye. Two Vera Wang perfumes that came in a gift set were going for a special price.
She walked in hesitantly. She had never bought perfumes before and did not know if the salesgirl would be the snobbish types that usually accompanied such branded goods. She has only read about the best perfumes for women on this page. Luckily for her, the salesgirl was very friendly. She sprayed one of each perfume onto little paper strips for her to sniff.
The first one was a light fragrance that was delicate and gentle, almost royal. This was Vera Wang Princess. Vera Wang Princess starts with hints of golden apricot skin, waterlily, mandarin meringue and also apples. This is followed by mid notes of pink guava, wild tuberose and dark chocolate. The base notes consisted of pink frosting accord, royal musk, amber, woods, and chiffon vanilla. The bottle was a heart shaped bottle with a little golden crown.
The second one was Vera Wang Flower Princess. The bottle is similar to that of its predecessor. It had pale pink nuances and the top was a silver crown decorated with pink crystals. This is a floral yet fruity composition. It has green ivy notes, tangerine and lotus as the top notes. The mid notes consisted of orange blossom petals, Moroccan rose, jasmine and mimosa. The base notes consisted of peach peel, amber, precious woods accords and also musk.
She took the set and kept it properly safely in her suitcase all the way to the UK. When she reached, she presented it to both her sisters. Two little boxes with miniature perfume bottles in them. Since she did not know which perfume they would both prefer she left the choice to them.
The elder one chose Princess and the younger one chose Flower Princess. They opened the little boxes and squealed with delight. It was the prettiest presents they had ever seen. The elder one started sniffing her perfume and liked it a lot. She used it every day till it finished. The younger one whipped out her camera and started posing the bottle under the lights taking multiple photos in various angles. It was the prettiest bottle of miniature perfume that any of them had ever seen.
She was happy. The effort that she had taken to carefully select the best birthday present she could find had been worth it. The little perfume bottles are empty now but the memories remained of the day that the three sisters had been reunited.
