If you love Flowerbomb, please stop buying it and buy Sensual Amber instead! Flowerbomb and Sensual Amber smell exactly alike except that Sensual Amber is sweeter, smoother, and more beautiful without the BO smell Flowerbomb has - and Sensual Amber is a fraction of the price! MOST IMPORTANTLY, Bath & Body Works do not test their products on animals - Victor & Rolf does!! Please do not support cruelty and evil to innocent animals locked in cages crying to be saved! Please think of that when you buy perfume, and buy a wonderful alternative instead that smells even better anyway!! When I found out that Victor & Rolf commits evil atrocities against animals I got nauseous and could no longer look at the bottle of Flowerbomb sitting on my vanity - it looked like poison & I immediately returned it & am so happy to have found Sensual Amber to replace it with!!
Ick! This one smelled horrible on me, like cheap high school stuff. But everyone else seems to love it, so it obviously just doesn't go with my chemistry.
Meow! This is one sexy fragrance! As a former BBW employee I've pretty much tried every fragrance the company has put out and sensual amber is my favorite by far.
First of all, it smells expensive, much like a high end perfume. It's got an exotic sweetness to it, not the usual BBW whitefloral/fruity sweetness, but something deeper and darker. When it dries down, you get a sexy amber sandalwood-y base that lasts all day. This is a heavier perfume so I typically wear it in the colder months, however, it would be perfect to wear on a sultry summer night as well.
This is not your usual BBW fragrance at all, not sugary sweet and marketed to 15 year olds..this is a big girl fragrance! If you've never tried it before, head out to your local BBW and give it a try, it really is amazing!
Never having been a fan of B&BW fragrances (too sweet...too floral...too generic) I had to smell this after reading reviews here. After letting it dry down while in a bookstore I got a veil of warm, floral, powder...don't know how else to describe it. The initial spray was classic B&BW BUT when this settled into it's resting place (a term I call the bottom notes) I fell for it. If I smelled this on someone else I'd never guess this was B&BW that's how well done it is. I love to spray ALL my fragrances down low on my lower back & backs of knees...I swear the scent is plain better that way. Instead of a cloud around your neck and boobie area, sprayed low it tends to waft up lightly all day. I'm thankful to MUAer's for all your honest opinions on products.
Edit. This won a Fifi Award in 2007.
I really like this scent!!! Although it wasnt..quite..what I was expecting. This is a very deep WOODSY amber with a hint of vanilla. This is the EDT form. In the other form, the body mist, this scent is more floral (rather than woodsy) with slightly more vanilla. The EDT is *almost* masculine smelling on me... but not totally. I like it. Its great for night time, very comforting and yes sensual.
This is one of my new favorite scents!! It smells like a luxury perfume!! For the price I expected it to be crappy but it smells really good and it last!!! I put some on at 6 in the morning and could still smell it at 11 that night! I always get tons of compliments on it and my boy friend loves it!!! Go to BBW and atleast smell it!!!!
I get so many compliments on this scent. I like to wear this on the weekends when I go out at night (and sometimes layer with Burberry Weekend). It is a little sweet, spicy, and sophisticated. Another win from BBW. I know the amber scents are really in right now, but I really wish BBW would keep this scent around as a classic romantic scent.
I was looking through B&BW during their Hello Yellow sale, on the hunt for a lovely bottle of JCB (I know lots dislike but I miss it on cold days), but they were out, of course; so I just began sniffing around. Low and behold I stumbled upon Sensual Amber.. smells like Autumn and relaxation.. it's calming to me.. I don't know anything about top notes/base notes/ ect. But I loved it so much I bought two bottles, sadly it doesn't last long on me at all, even though I layer with the body wash and lotion. Most lotions and body mists/perfumes fade very easily on me which is why I only took off one lipstick.
If you like cozy, you should definitely take a whiff next time you're around B&BW
I wore this to the movies with a group of friends. Afterwards, back at my friend's house, we kicked back and watched another film. One guy I was particularly interested in cuddled next to me on the floor and soon, he kept leaning in and grazing my neck. I realized that that was where I had sprayed it - the back of my neck. He made every effort to get closer to me and I swear it was my scent that mesmerized him ;) Beautiful fragrance for cozy autumn days and nights.
Bought this based on the reviews. This was one of my first BBW products as well. I do like the BBW EDT formula; it's comparable to some perfumes which are twice the price. It lasts and doesn't smell alcoholic or cheap. Now the scent:
* Top Notes: Bergamot, Wild Berries, Succulent Plum
* Mid Notes: White Rose, Orange Flower, Lotus Petals, Iris
* Base Notes: Amber, Creamy Sandalwood, Vanilla, Patchouli, Praline, Musk
I really wanted to like this, but at first, I didn't love it. On me, the scent goes to the base notes after 30 mins and I smell too sweetly of vanilla for most of the day. But the scent grew on me. By night time, the smell becomes really creamy, warm, delicious and very "sensual amber". I love it now and it's a good price.
