this is a review for Amber Romance EVERYTHING! i got everything Amber Romance as a Christmas gift from my sister in law, because she knows what kind of scents i appreciate. this is very beautiful, warm, and a bit spicy out of the bottle. but...well, my experience with this stuff is about the same as my experience with Elizabeth Taylor's White Diamonds (see my review). maybe it's the amber *scribbles notes*.
The lotion is a little thin and at first the scent is a little odd, but given some time, the scent is really nice. And, its a nice change from the fruitiness of lovespell and the other boring ones.
I love this scent! I like VS's lotions much better than the creams, as they seem to sink in better. I don't like the feel that VS claims is "silky" and which I call silicone. I will put up with it for the scent though.
Funny...when I first got this smell as a gift, I didn't care for it on first whiff. When I actually used the spray and lotion a few days later I was in awe. This is THE perfect fall/winter smell. It's not for the faint of heart because it is a heavy, exotic smell. Men seem to love this one. I get loads of compliments with this. If this seems to strong for you, try Brown Sugar and Fig from Bath and Body Works. It's in the same scent family but a lot sweeter and softer.
Just tried the new Body Butter. Great consistency and wonderful smell. I like the shimmer cream better but the girl at the store told me this is a special item, only out in the summer and at the holidays so I will be sticking with the body butter until then.
I actually bought the body shimmer cream and it was wonderful. Gold flecks throughout, wonderful consistency to the cream, which really enhanced the fragrance. Looked great with a tan and received many compliments on the gold shimmer effect.
Love it! It's not sophisticated in any way, but it smells, warm, sweet, and yummy, and extremely sensual. I find that this stuff moisturises very, very well too. This is one of the best of the Garden line, and I will re-purchase as long as they make it. *EDIT* I have gotten so many compliments on this one over the past few months of wearing it - it makes me really happy. My husband likes it too.
I love the smell of this stuff, but I swear the consistency is like water. I can't stand how liquidy it is. Once you put it on it's like you can't even feel it. It just kind of evaporates. I wouldn't buy agian as it doesn't moisturize hardly at all!
If you like MK Tribute you'll like this,it's almost the exact same scent.Smells great layered under the aforementioned Tribute.I don't really know how to describe this except this is a bit like a floral oriental as the MK fragrance is described as.
Amber Romance is a great winter frangrance. Very warm and woodsy with a hint of spicy smokiness to it. I can defenitley smell the tabacco in it and I like it a lot.
I have the bath bubbles and the lotion in this scent and I love to take a hot bath after a cold day using these producs. The scent is so warm that it makes you feel cozy all over. I like it!
