Wow! Bath and body works hasn't come out with a scent that I've liked in years! I absolutely adore this! It's the praline and vanilla dry down that gets me everytime. So warm and snuggly and yummy, but also a tad sophisticated for such a fruity foody. Sometimes I think the citrus orange top notes are getting a tad cloying and then POOF...that vanishes and all that is left is the yummy aformentioned snuggly praline vanilla goodness. I'm not really a body spray type of girl, and I prefer good ol' dial or dove soap over any body washes, but I slather this lotion on right after a shower and I love the wafts of this fragrance on my skin all day. I love that at the end of the day when I take off my clothes they smell so yummy, and my skin still does too. I don't even feel like I need perfume with this. This scent has such an amazing staying power. I am on my second bottle and not tired of it yet. :)
I like this a lot. I do think that it reminds of a lighter and "winter-like" version of Twilight Woods. It has more of a fruity (orange-like) tone than Twilight Woods. The lasting power is fine, at least similar to other Bath and Body Works fragrances. I will buy it again, it is a nice combination of fruity and musky notes.
After a couple of very hot, late summer days, it was finally cooler today, and this scent was perfect for a cool September day. Although the notes include praline and apricot, it does not smell "foody" to me, just rich and creamy without being overpowering. I'm sure I'll be reaching for this often.
This scent is actually growing on me. I picked it up because I had a coupon that said I could get one free signature item (full-sized body spray, lotion, etc.) if I spent at least $10. Why not? I already had enough Twilight Woods and Coconut Lime Verbena (two of my favorite BBW scents from the Signature Collection) at home, so I decided to splurge on Forever Sunshine, which I'd heard/read many reviews on via MUA and Youtube. Sniffing the tester at the store, I wasn't overly impressed; it was just okay. Still, I tossed it in with my purchases, hoping for the best (And I wouldn't be too bummed if it sucked because it was free!). Having worn it for a few days, I can honestly say this isn't such a generic citrus, summer scent, which is what I originally feared it would be. It starts off with a burst of rich tangerine, followed quickly with a buttery, cookie-like praline. I think the praline scent is what makes it unique. As another MUA-er said, it really does smell like lemon cookies. The dry-down, however, eases into sophistication. I get more of the floral notes--peony?--on my skin during the dry-down. And I dunno why, but it's smelling a lot like Lolita Lempicka on me. A little floral, a little musky. I'm getting a little Viva La Juicy but not enough to warrant me replacing Viva with this; Viva is definitely more sweet, more caramelly. Still, for a product that was free (dirt cheap, otherwise. I would've only shelled out $12 for the full-sized spray had I paid. Not bad), this a nice scent. Do I think it's overly unique? No. But it's a nice transition from summer to fall scent. I won't repurchase, only because I think my bottle is enough to keep me content until I break out my winter scents ;)
This smells amazing! I usually wear nothing but vanillas...my fave being Vanilla Noir. When I saw this, I completely skipped it because it looked like a summer citrus scent that I would not like. I saw the great reviews and had to sniff...I fell in love! I agree with the reviewer who said they felt the praline saved it from being like other summer fragrances.
I LOVELOVELOVELOVE this perfume. I went ahead and bought the perfume version knowing I would have no regrets. I bought a back up in case it was ever going away. It smells fruity, creamy, and fun- the perfect combination. It has a lasting power of about 6 hours. The packaging is so fun and cute! I won't be purchaing another one because I have a backup for a backup(:
This was a surprise. I expected to hate it because I usually hate citrus scents, but this is great! I think the praline saves it from being just like every other "summer" fragrance. It really does remind me of the last lingering days of summer. A good, lighter change from my first love, Sensual Amber.
One of the best summer scents at B&BW. LOVE, LOVE, LOVe. So sweet and summery is the best way I can describe this scent. Not to heavy but very noticeable when worn and layered with the bath wash, lotion, then body mist. continued >>
My friend told me that I had to try this because it reminded her of us in high school. I wore Vanilla Fields and she wore Sunflowers, this is kind of a mix of the two. I really like it, it's similar to Burberry Brit. This fragrance lasts but isn't too strong, very nice.
Seriously, this stuff is PURE summer in a bottle! LOVE IT!!! The first notes I smell are the juicy tangerine/mandarin and apricot notes, so sweet and yummy! Then the floral notes come out, can't tell which ones, but they all smell good, then the vanilla comes out and the floral starts to smell creamy and sort of caramel-y. Every so often, I detect a whiff of something beachy, almost like coconut, but not quite, I can't explain it, just smells like summer. It's just heavenly and happy and a bottle of sunshine. Try it out!
