This is probably one of my favourite BBW scents, next to Into the Wild and Wild Berry Tulips. It's VERY sweet, so those who prefer a more musky or deep scent, this is not for you!
It's got hints of cotton candy and sweet florals, very girly in my opinion! I have it in the lotion and sparkle mist, both of which I love. I find that it has a lot of staying power and gradually fades into a soft sweetness throughout the day. Definitely a good scent for teenage girls (like myself), or just for the day time.
I'm almost done my lotion and am excited to try some new scents, but will probably come back to this one!
Smells like licorice......... not my thing.
This smells literally like cupcakes and flowers to me! It smells so delicious, I just want to eat it up - I can almost taste the buttercream frosting ;)
This scent is ok. I have to agree with another reviewer that this is a little bit too candy sweet scented. The packaging and name are very sweet although I think with the name I would think this would be more of a classic scent. This like all BBW lotions is great at moisturizing. The bottle is also great. It drains all of the lotion to the lid when turned upside down and is to cut open to scoop out leftovers. Ok scent, but not something I could handle using every single day.
The last few years of B&BW products have been disappointing.
Too many candy/fruity fragrances with no depth or mystery.
Pink Chiffon joins the failures;
its not bad, but just not that good.
It's a floral vanilla scent (B&BW trademark)
with no complexity... and once the initial opening fragrance
blooms..in the drydown there's nothing left. No afternotes.
Just formulaic... the crowds rush in whenever B&BW has
an 'event..' they give away freebies of newest scents,
but nothing is left to impress us.
B&BW used to have a wider variety of types of fragrances,
but everything seems to come out of a formula:
come on B&BW- show us something really new..
don't just copy- in a cheap way- the expensive fragrances..
that the rock stars are selling...
Yuk...too cloying for me and gives me a headache...has a weird note like regurgitated pineapple or something...not my thing!
This is a wonderful lighly sented but long wearing lotion. The B&BW website describes the sent as:
"Our exclusive Pink Chiffon is a light-as-air pairing of soft pink petals & vanilla chiffon icing
Key Fragrance Notes: Sparkling Red Pear, Vanilla Orchid and Whipped Chiffon Musk"
I definately detect notes of Orchid, vanilla, and rose, so I would say the discription is pretty accurate. I would recommend trying the tester in store and getting the travel size, which for me lasts for a few months and is a great value.
I picked up this lotion along with the fragrance mist and the shower gel the day it came out. I love it! It's so fresh and floral smelling. It's a great everyday use!
I am in LOVE with this new fragrance. I wasn't sure I would like it, because I read several people compare it to Secret Wonderland, which just didn't work for me. I admit that there are some definite similarities there, but whatever the note was that went sour on me in Secret Wonderland, it's not here in Pink Chiffon. When I first put it on, I get almost a licorice/anise scent -- kind of like Pink Sugar does. This opening note doesn't last long on me. When it dries down, all I smell is something very fruity -- to me, it smells like strawberries, but I think it's actually the pear -- and cotton candy-like scent too. After it's been on my skin for awhile, it's pretty much alllllll vanilla with a hint of whatever the fruit is. It's just gorgeous, and the smell really lingers. I think it's one of Bath and Body Works' best new scents in the last couple of years -- which of course means it will be promptly discontinued. :p Guess I better stock up.
I admit that I was drawn to this product by the whimsical pink packaging. BBW's packaging looks better each year, now that I think of it. The website states that the key notes are vanilla, pear and musk, but I personally am having a hard time really pinning one note down. It's almost as if the "light-as-air" scent is left without a note to really anchor it down. Or at least that's what my nose perceives. I enjoy soft vanilla scents and was really hoping this would do the trick, but it really isn't as vanilla-y as I expected. More of a soft, fruity floral minus any fruit-punchiness.
The scent is pleasant and sweet, I must give it that, but I don't find it particularly unique. To me, I find it really similar to Paris Amour, and the fact that both products have pink packaging make them seem even more alike. I feel like Pink Chiffon fits into a family of BBW's new sweet florals: Paris Amour, Carried Away, Charmed Life, Country Chic and Winter Wonderland. If you like these scents, then do try this one out! You'll smell sweet and "nice" for sure. But if these scents have been leaving you wanting just a little more, then you might want to consider something else.
