Maybe all of you whining about the staying power needs to try the lotion. I put on the lotion after I got out of the shower before work, worked 5 hours, went out to a bar after work, and once I woke up in the morning I could still smell it. And that was just the application of the lotion, not even with the spray.
As for the scent, when I first smelled it in the store i really loved it... Kinda changed my mind after a while, but I recently remembered I had it sitting in the back of my perfume collection and decided to give it another go. So far, Im liking it again.
This by far is my favorite VS perfume out there to date. Reading some of the reviews on here I guess it does have a bit of a masculine scent to it, but I've found it's very floral as well. Regardless of the mixture, it's amazing. I've gotten so many compliments on it. The first time I wore it around my boyfriend he raved about it, he's complimented me befored on perfumes but not like he did on this one! I get the body spray since it's only $25 and it's a lot less concentrated/less strong than the bottle of perfume. Plus if VS has sent me a coupon in the mail for $10 off it makes the body spray even cheaper! I bought mine a year ago and still have over half the bottle left. You don't need but about 2 to 3 sprays.
This is a beautiful and really sexy smell. As another reviewer said here, it has a masculine smell, which is really nice. My husband really likes it too.
On the VS they say it contains purple passion fruit, Shangri-la yellow peony and vanilla orchid.
What I really like about it is that it is not too sweet. It has a fresh citrus smell and a masculine smell, with a bit of warmth, probably from the vanilla orchid.
Now I just can't stop spraying this on me, that's how much I like it.
I am glad VS made that scent. It's adorable.
I adore this. This is by far my favorite VS scent I think. It's got a masculine quality to it that I think is very, very sexy. Would definately repurchase.
This fragrance is delicious!!! It's definitely a fruity floral and something in it reminds me slightly of a men's cologne (in a good way). I sprayed a spritz of the perfume on my wrist one day testing it out and it just radiated beautiful scent all day til I washed it off. I bought the body spray and even that (despite the much lower concentration) lasts on me all day, albeit a lighter version of the fragrance. It smells great on my skin and doesn't turn spicy on me like many others do. The body splash/spray has enough scent for me but I'd easily buy the fragrance too. One of a kind scent in my book, and I've smelled a lot. It smells nothing like Sexy Little Things Noir--I have that one too and they are completely different!
On its own Bombshell is all right--standard VS fare, fresh and sweet. However, my favorite way to wear this scent is to layer it with Thierry Mugler's Angel. Bombshell's fruity sweetness negates a lot of Angel's spicy undertones and the combination is a borderline-unisex blend of musk, vanilla and florals that I think is the perfect sexy scent for summer nights. Plus, layering a tiny amount of two scents means that I won't be running out of Bombshell any time soon; honestly, though, I probably won't repurchase after my bottle runs out. It's a little generic for my taste and I feel that the a similar scent could easily be found for cheaper elsewhere.
Feels like this must be done! So now I'm doing it! Sampling BOMBSHELL by Victoria's Secret (won in 3 categories FiFi Awards 2011). Silly, smells just like every other fruity sweet VS/Celeb-scent out ther. BOMBSHELL is just fruity version of former FiFi VS-winner "Sexy Little Things Noir". 4 lippies for the kind-of sweet packing - but other than that = 1 lippie. *big YAWN*
Finally found my HG scent! I've tried countless perfumes and I get tired of them after a few weeks. However I never grow tired of this scent! It smells clean and sexy. I get tons of compliments when I wear this and it has good staying power! Will most deff. buy again!
LOVE this perfume! I got a tiny sample of it when it first came out and although I wasn't intending to actually buy some (I only wanted a sample size of some perfume to keep in my purse), I ended up falling in love with the scent. It's a bit pricey compared to their Secret Garden collection (which I usually buy from), but it's a great perfume and I've actually used about half of it since I bought it (November 2010).
I am in love with almost every VS perfume out there. I own a ton of them.
This scent smells SOOOO GOOD,,,,EXCEPT..the lasting power is terrible!! :( I spray it on (about 3 sprays), and I smell absolutely nothing after 20 min....very dissapointing..:( Maybe the Bombshell Summer edition has better lasting power. I really wanted to give this a 5 star rating. Actually the SCENT is a 5 star..but the lasting power..is a 1. Sorry VS..maybe you can re make this one with a much lasting power then this.
