Fragrances -Victoria's Secret -Amber Romance EDT

Most Victorias Secret scents are awful on me, and this one is another fruity, strongly ambery LOUD perfume. But. It also has undertones of something that make it smell like vintage makeup on my skin and I adore that. I use this in tiny little spritzes just before bed and underneath the screamy, super sweet juicy fruit (what IS that?), is this smooth, velvety comforting bedtime scent. I bought a huge, nasty plastic bottle for $8 and I"m enjoying it immensely.

I Live in Vancouver, BC in Canada. I have been using this specific body spray. I ahve always asked my family who live int he US to but it for me. My favourite!
Now that Victoria's Secret has opened in Vancouver, I can't seem to find this in the store.
Was the packaging replaced?

Fragrances -Victoria's Secret -Bare Vanilla

on 9/2/2018 4:01:00 PM

I read that this smelled like true vanilla but it is a dirty scent with lots of musk and not clean musk. It is cheap and cheap smelling. If you are looking for a true vanilla this is not it. Thankfully I didn't pay a lot.


Skincare - Body -Victoria's Secret -Moonlight Magic Shimmering Body Lotion

This was teh BEST line and best scent of my life. I am not kidding. It was perfect and I cannot believe they NEVER brought back such a top selling fragrance. I wish I could find out what the notes were so that I can try to find something that smells similar.

Skincare - Body -Victoria's Secret -Shimmering Body Splash-Moonlight Magic

THE BEST smell that I have ever smelled in my life. I am not kidding. This mixed with my chemistry perfectly. I LOVED it. Not to mention back when it came out I was working in DC as a paralegal in 90s and we would walk to the VS store every other day to see if it restocked. It would literally sell out, the entire line (blue one), the same day it arrived. I knew they would keep this forever being such a big seller. One day, it was gone. I cannot believe all these years they are putting out basic scents that no one buys when they have the formula for THIS beauty. It is a shame. I miss it dearly. Every time I call VS (which I have done every couple years) to TRY to get them to bring it back, none of the reps even know what I am talking about at all. In most cases, I am talking to a girl that was BORN in 97. lol. I just know it would sell just as well today as it did back then.

Fragrances -Victoria's Secret -Bare Vanilla

This is not a plain vanilla. So if you want a vanilla only scent, you may not like it.

It has a moderate but not overwhelming fruit note "under" the vanilla (pear I think) that adds some tartness to the vanilla. It's not terribly tart but enough to where I dislike it (I hate any fruit or citrus notes other than soft coconut, which is not in this). It ruins it for me with this fruit note that does not fade throughout wear.

It's not overly fruity (like some BBW, other VS scents, Escada) so it you don't mind a hint of fruit (pear) you may like it. It adds a bit of freshness with a tiny touch of a faintly soapy, clean undertone that is soft but not harsh.

The vanilla itself is nice. It's a bit like vanilla lace but with no cakey or buttery tones (I like cakey but hate buttery scents). If it was just the vanilla without the pear note, this would be nice. Not a favorite, or must have, but a nice inexpensive vanilla (I'm reviewing the body spray).

It's not a bad scent by any means, you just have to be able to enjoy a hint (not overwhelming) of pear and tartness with a hint of soap to the vanilla. It's a grown-up scent that isn't overly sweet (moderately sweet, but the hint of tartness tones it down), but still sensuous with the vanilla. It's a "clean" vanilla with a hint of pear (I hate VS pear scent, pear glacee' I think it was called.) and soft soapiness that isn't overwhelming or floral (I also hate floral scents.).

For reference, my favorite scents: Kenzo Amour, SDV, Un Bois Vanille, Kate Walsh Boyfriend (original), Ambre de Nepal, Warm Vanilla Sugar, Vanilla Lace

Fragrances -Victoria's Secret -Angel Gold

Victoria's Secret Angel Gold is a lovely fragrance, with notes of bergamot, gardenia and musk, a creamy floral citrus scent. Sweet, fruity light and sparkly in a pretty bottle with the iconic wings on the back. The lasting power and sillage are great, and I have gotten compliments while wearing this, a woman even came after me with pen and paper so that I could write the name of this fragrance down because she loved it. Wearable in all seasons, would repurchase, this is one of Victoria's Secret best fragrances IMO.

Fragrances -Victoria's Secret -Bombshell Shanghai

I bought this on a whim to test out something I'd read in one of my horse magazines---that this perfume was good at repelling both mosquitoes and flies on humans. Not being a big fan of a lot of repellents as they break me out like crazy and finding one that doesn't is a pain in the butt, I thought what the heck. I bought a couple samples and tried them on my bare arms and sprayed the perfume on my jeans and boots [yes I have had a horse fly bite through a pair of both heavy jeans and boots before!], then off to the barn I went.

While I did get strafed by a good number of flies, they didn't land, and I didn't have one mosquito bite from the 4 or so hours I was in the barn. I got a bit sweaty but didn't get any bites like I have in the past with bare skin when I sweat. I tried this for a few days running and then left the stuff off one evening. Boy was that a mistake, I came home covered in both fly and mosquito bites!

I've found a good, all natural bug repellent since then which smells a lot better [Bombshell is a very sharp, "spiny" scent to me and makes me sneeze a little] and is a lot cheaper but I'm not gonna forget this if I'm in a pinch!

Fragrances -Victoria's Secret -Rapture EDT or EDP

on 7/18/2018 12:44:00 PM

Ladies, if you were a fan of this perfume and are so sad it was discontinued (like me!) try "CHILD" by Susan Owens. It smells IDENTICAL and has most of the main notes Rapture had!!! Rapture: citrus/vanilla/jasmine/rose/amber/wood notes and Child: citrus/vanilla/jasmine/rose/wood notes!!! (minus the amber and couple other ones) For the most part, the two are nearly indistinguishable!
If you purchase Child (it is EXTREMELY expensive but if you love these notes, a little splurge won't hurt once in a great while) only dab it lightly on each wrist and behind the knees. Don't apply near the face or you'll get a headache. It has powerful sillage (like Rapture had) and even applied with the very lightest touch, you will still smell it; you'll get wafts of it around you throughout the day, which is heavenly. :)

Fragrances -Victoria's Secret -Pure Seduction

Love this scent!! It’s a very very sweet smell !! Advantages are it smells amazing if you love sweet smells in mists / perfumes , packaging looks pretty & good quality , can also buy the matching options & creams. Disadvantages include it’s not long lasting & very expensive for a mist. However I always get compliments when I wear it


Fragrances -Victoria's Secret -Pure Seduction

A fragrance mist that’s reasonably strong scented, very pleasant and that will get you compliments. I’ve sat next to someone, had them comment and ask what I was wearing. It draws people in as it’s intense, delicious and plumy. It’s hard to describe but it does smell so good. I had recieved a travel size of this as a gift in a set after wanting it for so long and I love it! There’s a reason it always seems to be out of stock. If you’re unsure, smell a tester before purchasing. I currently won’t be repurchasing as I’ve got perfumes and another mist to get through but if I didn’t, I would’ve repurchased already.

Fragrances -Victoria's Secret -Dream Angels Heavenly

Bear in mind that I haven't chosen it myself, I've got it as a gift.
To me, it smells really cheap, nothing like Chanel, Dior, Diptyque, etc.
The smell is very warm, very musky and too sweet to my personal taste (I prefer light fruity spicy fragrances).
The bottle is lovely, the price is great. But I believe that with perfumes you get what you pay for.
