Review of Bath and Body Works Sweet on Paris by spiderleenie
I have the original Paris Amore, and I like it ... But it's not anything special, in my opinion. I'll gladly use up the products I own in this fragrance, but I definitely won't repurchase.
I was overall underwhelmed by the Paris in Love line. None of the three fragrances smell bad, but I thought that Paris in Bloom was a really standard (but soft and not unpleasant) floral that didn't have much personality, and I thought that Paris Nights was too much like the original Paris Amore to justify buying it. Sweet on Paris is by far my favorite of the three!
Sweet on Paris is probably the best gourmand that Bath and Body Works has released in quite a while. It's definitely sweet and dessert-like, but it's not overpowering at all. It's a very feminine gourmand. If I had to describe it, I would honestly say that it's a dessert version of Country Chic. BBW's website doesn't have any floral notes listed for this, but I definitely smell a hint of some, because there's a slight powdery softness in this. That softness mixed with the lemon meringue makes me think of Country Chic! It's a nice blend!
I'd say that Sweet on Paris is good for almost the entire year. I think it's warm and sweet enough for Fall and Winter, and I think it's soft and delicate enough for Spring. It might be too much for the Summer, but I think it can be pulled off if you don't spray yourself liberally with it.
Overall, I'd really like for this to become a part of the permanent line, but BBW usually discontinues everything *I* like. Haha. I guess I have to stock up!
