A close friend of mine gave me a set of Strawberries and Champagne lotion, body wash, and splash, 7 or 8 years ago. I was in highschool, and, of course, I wore it. Not because I particularly *liked* it but because, being a cosmetic product, it was therefore womanly, and aloud me to revel in my femininity. But now, as a grown woman who has sampled many fragrances and discovered what I actually like and what gives *me* pleasure, instead of just wearing body splash/perfume for the sake of wearing a cosmetic, I can't imagine ever wearing something like Strawberries and Champagne. It is harsh and cloying, beer mixed with synthetic strawberries, fizzy, boozy and artificially fruity. It smells cheap. Now I realize why my mother complained every time I spritzed this stuff on. There is nothing pretty or elegant about this fragrance. I could see it perhaps being somewhat refreshing, in the way that beer is refreshing. But then, you don't aim to *wear* beer.
The day someone commented that I smelled like a drunk girl..was the day I stopped using it.
I'm not a fan of this scent. The smell reminds of the scents from the Tinkerbell beauty products I used to play with as a child.
I received this for Christmas and put it in my gum bag. Put it on this morning after my work out and six hours later it is still going strong. Not overpowering, but I am aware of it. It reminded me of another scent and for the life of me I couldn't remember what it was... it is almost a dead match (on me anyway) to Gap's limited edition Love Potion #14, which I bought two bottles of a few years ago and have been storing in my fridge to ration out. Not anymore.... this stuff is almost the same thing.
I love Victoria Secret's Strawberries and Champagne. I think it is a great casual or everyday scent. It is for those that like fruity scents with a little bit of tartness. You can definitely smell the champagne, but it is not overwhelming. I highly recommend this if you like fruity smells. It would be good for the summer.
This scent makes me feel girly! It's pretty sweet and probably not for everyone. I like to put on a light sprtiz of a VS spray before I leave the house. I've been doing that for years. All my coats and scarves smell great! ha!
I have two bottles of this spritzer I got BOGOF some 6 years ago. At the time, I really liked the scent, then I got sick of it...Too sweet. It stayed at the back of my bathroom cupboard for 4 years and then one day I was heading out the door and realized I hadn't showered and really stunk. I knew my regular deoderant wouldn't do anything for this, the only thing would be to clean the area well and then apply deoderant and so I was searching for the rubbing alcohol and found this. Hey, this is supposed to have a champagne scent in it, and it certainly has alcohol in it, so I spritzed this cooling mist on. And I liked how it smelled! What had attracted me to this in the first place all those years ago was the strawberry scent, but right now I like the wine cooler-like scent quality. It makes me feel like a fun carefree college going girl again. Reminds me of the days before I had kids and responsibilities. Of course, I have other perfumes I like better and so I will not use this often, probably just days when I haven't had time to shower and need to smell better or when I'm feeling old and want to smell younger. I will continue to use this as I have a completely full other bottle, but I won't repurchase.
I dont like this smell too much. It smells like a really cheap strawberry spray that you would find in kmart or something. wouldnt buy it again.
Strawberries & Champagne is a nice, fruity scent from VS that isn't too "fruit punch." Most of their Garden Collection smells like different variations on fruit punch to me. Now, that's not a *bad* thing, just not as interesting to me.
I have the lotion, body wash, and edt. which lasts pretty long. It's deep enough that you could wear it any time of the year.
My other faves are Pear Glace(year round) and Love Spell & Pure Seduction during the warmer months.
Edited to add: The body spray is "cleaner" and less "champagne" like than the edt. The spray smells more like strawberry shampoo while the edt is sweeter, heavier on the strawberry and the champagne.
I love this! Just received for free from VS and I adore it. It is perfect for summer days and nights. Has good staying power as well and will also buy the lotion! Hubby loves it!
