I went to BBW today to purchase Vanilla Noir and ended up getting Sensual Amber instead. I tried them both on and there was just no question. The opening of Sensual Amber reminds me of The Body Shop's Warm Amber, but with a sweet hint of Ambre Narguile added too. It's really quite nice and warm and golden like a lightly spiced baked apple but lacks the heaviness and pomp of AN. It's much more casual in feel - the 'sweet amberyness' seems to hover above a warmer kind of white musk - like a *beige* musk that also involves subtle dry floral notes. That's what I get anyhow. The notes listed on the box are lotus, amber, plum and sandalwood. I think this is a great find, a lovely scent, and a good value for the price, especially since the lasting power is quite good. I highly recommend and will gladly repurchase.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of the Sensual Amber line! It's such a "sensual" scent...they nailed it with the name! Whenever I use this scent I do it all...the scrub, creamy body wash, body cream, then the EDT! It can be a little strong at first, but it wears really nice! Every time I wear it I get compliments on it, mostly coming from men...no complaints there! :-) It also smells like it would be a really expensive fragrance! For the price & all the compliments I receive...this scent will forever be one of my favorites!
I'm so glad that B&BW came out with this scent. I hope they never get rid of it. It smells sooooo amazing. I was lucky and I got this perfume for only four dollars on sale!
This is a great product. It has an amazing smell, and it comes in different products like body wash and others. It is one of my favorite things.
OMG MY HG OF PERFUMES. This stuff smells SOOOOOOOOO good. I love it. It has such a warm smell to it. I know some people don't think it lasts long, but on me I smell it all day. It has such a spicy and yummy smell to it with great lasting power (IMO). Overall, I am in love with this, and get compliments on it a LOT. However, it's a strong smell so don't spray more than one, maybe two sprays. Will def. be buying this over and over.
I really like this scent and it's been described well by past reviewers, so I won't go too much into that. I always layer this with the lotion, but even then, it doesn't last as long as I would like. That may be the only drawback to this one. Apart from that, it's been on of my favorite scents this fall and winter.
Bought this on impulse, being a lover of amber and having used the Wallflower in the past. This isn't true amber on me, although it is other notes masquerading as amber: soft creamy floral and woods for an overall scent that is LIKE amber, but definitely not amber. To me it's very sophisticated yet tropical, like an expensive hotel on the beach. Not too heavy, but has decent lasting power - about 12 hours. The square glass bottle with the fragrance name printed on the front in script isn't terribly exciting.
I LOVE the top notes of this scent, it really is yummy...but it has a subtle powdery undernote to it, which my husband can't stand. Too bad. I still think it's a wonderful fragrance!
*****UPDATE: I hate how everyone confuses this scent with Paris Hilton's Can-Can. When I wear it, someone is always asking me if I have on Paris Hilton. I hate that because I don't want to be associated in any way with some teenybopper, dumbfounded person. I'm sorry that this scent wasn't original, but I still love it.*****
LOOOVE! Although this is my first day wearing it, I am is absolute heaven with this scent. It's not overpowering at all. Really light and not sweet. It's a little musky, but it's also a tad bit spicy so it's just right. The reason I know I'm in love with this scent is because contrary to other scents, I like to smell this in the bottle AND on me. Usually I get sick of smelling any scent all day.
The one thing about EDTs however is that their scents don't really last long throughout the day. So I have to layer (shower gel, lotion, EDT). But no biggie!
This. Smells. Like. FLOWERBOMB. Amazing. I read yesterday from the other reviewers that this smells like Flowerbomb, so I popped over to BBW to try it. I was astounded. It is an almost exact dupe. Fabulous, though, because it's not quite so strong as Flowerbomb. Lighter. And not anywhere near as expensive. I don't generally like BBW fragrances as they tend to be sickeningly sweet and cheap, but this smells like a much more high-quality perfume. My eleven-year-old son loved it, and if an eleven-year-old boy likes a scent, then it's a winner.
