I work at VS (on the verge of quiting as I type this... worst place to work ever...) and I picked this up because we had discontinued items available for our weekend sale. well, I can see why this was discontinued. I bought it because I thought it would smell better on my skin, like vanilla like all the MUA reviews suggest. I smell almond in the tube, but on my skin it smells like suntan lotion or sunscreen. I smell no vanilla what so ever. I know it's supposed to, but I just can't smell it. I think vanilla lace is 100 x better *ducks*. I don't see how this scent could be "sexy" unless you get turned on by beaches or suntanning.... but whatever floats your boat. I gave it 2 lippies, because it doesn't smell very good, but it isn't as nauseating as my manager says it is. maybe I would buy again just to bother her (she really hates this scent).
I have died and gone to heaven!!! Hoarding the stuff! loke this even better than TBS Vanille and L'Ocitanes!
If Vanilla Lace and Warm Embrace got into a fight, Vanilla Lace would die a miserable and despicable, painful death. Warm Embrace is delicious - A *true* vanilla with slight coconut undertones. This is hands down my favorite vanilla fragrance! The lasting power of VS's body creams is amazing and imho, unbeatable :D continued >>
I love the hand and body cream in this fragrance - reminds me so much of SoftSoap's Milk and Honey fragranced shower gel. The hand and body cream is very thick and luxurious - settles down into my dry, parched skin and makes my skin feel so silky smooth! I prefer this to the body lotion in the same line which I found to be too thin in consistency and not as fragranced. After the holidays this was found in the discontinued bin at 3/$11.99 at the one store I frequent - will definitely stock up on this before they are all gone!
VS Lotions are the best. They are more moisturizing than BBW lotions and they leave my skin hydrated even on the coldest winter days.
I must say, I love this more than the body lotion. This is rich, thick and lasts all day. The scent is great, a soft, fresh vanilla. I use this *all over*, especially my hands and even after a few washings, the scent is still there. Extremely emollient, I definitely buying this again!
