Taylor Swift’s debut fragrance launches in Singapore


Head down to Sephora ION to check out Taylor Swift’s new fragrance Wonderstruck & you could win a Wonderstruck hamper.

Four-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift has launched her first-ever fragrance, Wonderstruck, in partnership with Elizabeth Arden.

The fruity-floral fragrance contains sweet notes of Apple Blossom, Vanilla, Honeysuckle and Peach which makes it feminine and ideal for everyday use.

The name Wonderstruck comes from one of Swift’s songs “Enchanted” and draws inspiration from her personal life experiences.

With her debut fragrance, the singer hopes to capture an awe-inspiring feeling which comes from experiencing something magical, such as the rush of an instant connection with someone.

“A fragrance can help shape someone’s first impression and memory of you. It’s exciting to think that Wonderstruck will play a role in creating some of those memories”, says Swift.

As part of the celebrations surrounding the launch of Wonderstruck in Singapore, you could also win a Wonderstruck hamper worth more than $150 by taking part in the ‘I’m Wonderstruck Instagram Contest’ exclusively at Sephora ION Orchard.

To take part in the competition, head down to Sephora ION Orchard from today until June 27, 2012 and capture a picture-perfect moment. Add @wonderstrucksg on Instagram and post your picture with the hashtag #wonderstrucksg to stand a chance to win. Contest ends July 5, 2012.
