My husband rarely comments on my perfumes other than to say, "Yeah, it smells pretty good" or "It's not bad" and then it's because I've asked him what he thought, not because he felt like offering an opinion. Well, I tried this on and when I got home he said, "Whatever you're wearing, that one smells good." So of course, we hopped in the car, drove over to BBW and I bought the entire line. I scored too because I'd taken one of those receipt surveys that get you $10 off a purchase of $30, it was during a B2G1F/B3G2F sale AND if you bought the EDT, you got a Body Lotion free. So for under $40 I got the EDT, the Body Lotion, the Hand Cream and the Shower Gel. I just wish they'd make this in the Shea Cashmere Hand Cream. The fact that they haven't expanded the line makes me worry that they will retire it. I hope not because this fragrance is AMAZING! It's such a warm, smooth scent and everyone I know LOVES it. When I got out of the shower after we'd gotten home after buying it, my husband said, "What did you spray back in the bedroom?" and I said, "My new stuff..." and he said, "Wow, that stuff DOES smell freakin' GOOD!" I'm sold.
What's not to love here? Keeps me feeling roasty/toasty in the colder months! Feels bright, fresh, and alive on the skin, and is reminiscent of the tropics. When the sun hides, I break this out and somehow, it feels like mid-summer. A must for those of us who live in sweaters and can't take the chill of a long winter!
Not for me. Too strong and brown sugar/vanilla for my taste.
This is a very sweet, summery scent.I personally didn't *love* it, but everytime I used the lotion at work people would double back to my desk and ask what smelled so good!
I needed to replace my everyday fragrance, and I'd heard good things, so I decided to try it out. Deserving of ALL five lippies! It starts out fresh and citrus-y, and dries down to a lovely, sensual warm vanilla-y scent, which is right up my alley. How did I not know about this sooner? Would definitely buy again. I hope they don't retire this anytime soon like they did with my last B&BW favourite (RIP, Magnolia Blossom).
The mandarin really pops at first in a sharp clean way and flowers get into the mix softening the mandarin notes. It comes into a sweet cookie scent. I think of a scoop of melting vanilla ice cream in the sun falling into a crispy praline ice cream cone. Maybe some fresh raspberry, or melon in the background but far from overbearing. The dry down of vanilla with tangerine/mandarin i think is what makes it a great scent for more then just summer. Tangerine really compliments a hot day, cool summer night. Vanilla is a wanted addition( i prefer a creamier vanilla, and Forever Sunshine has it IMO) into fall and winter and the praline adds a slight cookie like smell to the dry down.
I really didn't smell much apricot. Some woods comes though and i do think this fragrance compliments well with Twilight Woods.
For me overall, the most important part is the dry down and i really love the dry down of Forever Sunshine in its EDT & body lotion.
I gave it a 5 for packaging because i really love the bright colored bottle.
Does anyone know if this one is a limited edition? It seems like it, but the store girls didn't even know for sure.
I got this in the body mist, which is surprisingly concentrated and can last a long time on my skin. (I still smelled it about six hours later.)
At first, I was kind of skeptical because fragrances rarely get high reviews, but since so many people liked this scent, I decided to try it. At first, it smelled like a strong, sweet-and-floral scent. I don't like sweet scents very much, but it wasn't overly sweet (like cotton candy sweet) and when it faded, it left this lovely, mandarin smell. It's hard to explain, but it really DOES make me feel happy. It's a very "cheerful" scent; sweet, warm, faintly floral, somewhat orange-y but not overwhelming. I approve!
Forever Sunshine was way too strong and floral for me. Within 30 minutes of wearing it, I already had a headache. I returned it.
This is one of my favorite lotions ever I will def repurchase, it smells soo good and is excellent for the summer
So, it smells, like everyone says, like lemon and praline and peony. You can, if you try, distinguish these scents. However, what I love, is that this odd (in my mind) combination creates a beautiful overall scent...warm, rich and sexy. You smell a little like food, but not like your coated in bubblegum or pie and you smell a little floral, but not like a bouquet. It's the perfect balance...I love it. I don't think it's a strictly summer scent, but I do think in the middle of winters' blahs, it will make you think of warm sunshine.
And, if anyone cares, so does every man that gets close enough to smell me!
