This is an okay fragrance and possibly smell good if you can endure the first hour (smells a bit like lancome tresor). Main accord include amber, fruit, powdery, sweet , animalic. another VS fragrance that has animalic and amber scent is Rapture. heavenly forever : The top note is blackberry, middle is iris, and base is amber. I personally do not like amber or animalic smell (which is secretions from dead animals) so I did have an initial bad reaction to this scent. Even though they only used a tiny amount of dead animal extract in this perfume, I can still detect it. It has an undescribeable nasty scent. It is highly discounted during the semi annual sale, but I didn't purchase it simply because the fragrant is too sharp and heavy for my taste. As the hour wears on, it dries down to a vanilla smell typical of all the other perfumes. It's not too bad after an hour or 2. It has a pleasant vanilla scent that most people can endure and enjoy. However, to pay full price for a vanilla scent is a bit overpriced. Plus I don't want to have to endure bad smell for 2 hours for my perfume to finally smell right. I think VS has way more appealing fragrances than this one. This fragrance is on it way being discontinued.

Heavenly Forever body spray was my first fragrance purchase at VS along with another body spray. I can't believe they discontinued Heavenly Forever because it is really super nice, and smells exactly like another higher end perfume. If you like this scent and want it in a perfume version, go get Michel Germaine's Sexual Sugar in the pink box and don't put it off because it too might get discontinued. I got mine in a Christmas giftset at the Bay. Heavenly Forever beats VS's very popular Bombshell any day.

Bought this in the body spray b/c reg perfume gives me migraines. This smells so sexy yet feminine. Not overpowering. I literally spray it like twice and sometimes I feel that's too much. It works well with my body chemistry and on me it is faintly "powdery" and faintly "fruity" at the same time. By the end of the day, I can still smell it on my skin. I don't wear it everyday so this bottle will last forever. Still looking for my HG...

First, I should say that Dream Angels Forever is discontinued; a shame it could not be sold at VS stores forever (sorry for the pun), since it is a great fragrance. It is tied with Heavenly as my favorite Dream Angels scent.
Its composition is surprisingly simple: blackberry, iris, and amber. However, this trio works deliciously well. At initial spritz, the blackberry is prominent, fresh, juicy, and sweet. Then the iris blooms, lending the scent a soft, seductive, powdery feel. Finally, the amber emerges, warm, heady, and vanillic. Together the effect is an inviting, all be it safe, formula of fruity, floral, and gourmand/oriental indicative of most VS fragrances. However, Forever seems more classy with an understated elegance tempered with enough powdered sugar sweetness that it works well for both a girl and a woman at any time day or night. Just imagine a vanilla cake with a blackberry filling and a dusting of ground orris (iris root) on the lacy table cloth. Add candles and a satin ribbon to complete the picture.
Just who will eat this cake, I do not know. Perhaps that girl and her boyfriend; perhaps a man and his mistress celebrating some little illicit anniversary, though this scent is not exactly naughty. It is more romantic, so maybe I mean a man and his wife sitting down to a private wedding feast. That said, Forever can go anywhere. I have worn it out dancing, to order a transcript from the registrarís office, to an interview. It is more versatile than you may think. Regarding its similarity to Heavenly Stardust, I have never smelled Stardust, but I do recommend that you sample Forever because it has garnered me loads of compliments.
As for finding this lovely fragrance, its discontinuation can be a good thing. Online perfume outlets, like fragrancenet, still carry Forever. You can get a 4.2 Fl Oz. bottle for $50 or cheaper if you know where to look. Also lots of independent sellers put Forever (perfume, mist, and lotion) on sale; you just have to pay attention, which can be a drag, but that is what we shoppers on MUA like to do, right? Plus there is VSí semi annual sale, which just may carry Forever, which was only discontinued in and around December 2011. Stocking possibilities are endless during a semi annual. Good luck and smell swell!

One of my favorite scents from Victoria's Secret, I'm rather shocked that they are discontinuing it. In my opinion, it's a lot better than the other perfumes in the Dream Angels line.
I'm a sucker for sweet scents so after I first tested this, I knew I had to have the set. Fortunately, it works very well with my body chemistry and doesn't come off as too sweet or powdery. However, it doesn't really have a 'fruit' smell to it either.

I love this scent from the Dream Angels line!! Victoria's Secret is so dumb for trying to get rid of this fragrance! This without a doubt IS the best in the entire dream angels line, and yet this is the one they're clearing out! Out of all of their fragrances, this smells truly sexy. I love the blackberry in here. With the iris and amber-oh!-it's truly lust-inducing!!! Well, they're idiots, that's all that I can say.

This has to be one of my favorite scents from VS and I really didn't like any of the other scents in the line until I tried this. To be honest, I think this smells the best out of em all. It's a creamy, sweet but not overly sweet, a little powdery but it all mixes together perfectly. When I sprayed it on, it smelt so yummy and delicious lol I almost wanted to chew my arm off! Maybe I'm exaggerating:) but it does smell amazing! Definitely a keeper!

The original Victoria's Secret Heavenly perfume is truly heaven to my nose when the right person wears it. However, it doesn't mix well with my chemistry and ends up smelling overly musky and dirty when I wear it.
Heavenly Enchanted was a delightful change of pace, mixed beautifully with my body chemistry and I was inquiring about whether it would be brought back when the sales associate suggested Heavenly Forever. Boy am I indebted to her! It suits me very well. A previous reviewer stated it well when she described it as warm and cozy. Despite that description, I think it's one of those beautiful scents that wears well during all seasons. The blackberry is about a midtoned one, not too deep, not overly sweet, but you can certainly tell it's there. Don't let it scare you off if it's not normally your thing.
The amber note is not headache inducing, but just a tad velvety, along with what I think is sandalwood. They ground this scent without making it overwhelming or heavy. There are some clean florals in there that clean this fragrance up a bit. The lotion is quite a bit fruitier, so heads up. This review was based on the Eu De Parfum.

Was unsure of this at first in the VS store, I thought it was kind of sweet smelling at first, then it grew on me. So I bought the mist only to try. Today after taking a shower I used the mist and sprayed myself real good thinking scent will fade. I really could not smell it on me after short time, but it must be there because when I was on my porch cleaning windows today the breeze came in and I kept getting nice wiffs of it. It must be others can smell you, but you can't smell yourself? I find the scent soft, feminine, relaxing, cuddly, warm and cozy. Tonight I had a brainy idea, I just washed all my bed linens today and after I made entire bed tonight, I sprayed this mist lightly over all the pillows and sheets, and OMG can you say HEAVEN!! I usually use Bath and Body Works Lavender/Chamomille pillow mist, but tried this instead and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I am going back to VS first chance I get for the lotion and EDP for sure!

I may have found a new favorite perfume, which is saying a lot because I have far too many bottles of perfume and get bored with them quickly. Blackberry seems to work well with my body chemistry because I love any perfumes that contain blackberry as a prominent note. I've read reviews in which people have said they didn't smell any blackberry in this fragrance, but on my skin, it comes out nicely. I wish this were a permanent addition to the line, but I guess I'll have to stock up since I'm sure it's a limited edition.
ETA: Yep, sure enough, this is on its way out. I was able to get the largest sized bottle at 75% off during the semi-annual sale, so I'll be set for quite awhile. Still, wish this had been a permanent addition to their Dream Angels line. It's far better than the remaining 3, in my opinion, and definitely one of their best fragrances overall.

This smells yummy. I've never liked any of the Heavenly line before (too many girls I've worked with have doused themselves in it), but I was at VS and saw this and then read their description: blackberry, iris and amber.
I've been hunting for something summery so I sprayed it on paper with very low expectations. It smelled wonderful, so I sprayed it on my wrist and went about my business. 2 hours later I went back and bought a small gift set of it.
It was the same price as the other versions they have so it wasn't terrible. The only thing I dread is having to answer someone when they ask what I'm wearing. To me, it feels a bit tacky to say I'm wearing Victorias Secret, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
