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. Moreover, you can enhance it depending on the lotion and fragrance mist you use to layer; Vanilla Lace, Amber Romance, and Ravishing Love are all fine options I think.
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. Good luck and smell swell!

I saw this fragrance awhile back, the pink packaging is what caught my attention. I smelled it, and for some reason, it reminds me a little bit like the dream angels stardust. (is it just me?) Well, I really liked it but didn't want to blow $40 on more perfume so I just passed on it. Well at the last semi annual sale, they had these for $10 each. They also had Halo, which I bought first. I made about 4 trips to this sale and I went on the last day of the sale to make more purchases. Well they had SO MANY of these left and I was like "Why not?" Well my mom and sister gave me money to get them some things too. I ended up buying one of these for my sister and one for me. My sister loves this, and she's been using it like crazy, so every morning I can smell this on her when she leaves the house. It smells really really sweet. I don't mind really sweet perfumes, cause I have a lot of them. I haven't opened mine because I haven't been in the mood to use it yet. I have a mini one which is my purse perfume.
I am glad I made this purchase, that was a $42 perfume I got for only $10. Can't beat that! I'm saving it for maybe my spring fragrance or summer fragrance. Hopefully they keep this fragrance around.

My all-time fave perfume! Smells wonderful, super long-lasting, great for everyday use! Got it for 1/2 off during boxing week, so it ended up costing me $28...what a bargain! :)

This is definitely one of my favorite perfumes. This came out around Mother's day of last year, & I bought it as a present for my mom....but I fell in love with it myself. I ended up getting one for myself as well, & I wear this all the time. The smell lasts forever, just like the name. The staying power is great. The smell isn't too strong or overpowering, it has the perfect amount of sweetness. I also love the bottle it comes in. This is close to pretty much everything I look for in a perfume. It's expensive, like everything else in Victoria's Secret, but I still love it. In my opinion, this is if not the best perfume, one of the best from Victoria's Secret. I also love Dream Angels Heavenly & Supermodel. This is definitely worth the price:)

I bought this at the VS semi annual sale currently going on now and got it for an amazing price! This is currently my favorite VS perfume, it's very warm and sensual, the notes include amber, blackberry, and iris. To me, I mostly smell the warm amber note and wouldn't be surprised if there were some vanilla in this scent too. Many vanilla scents can come off cheap or juvenile but this scent is sensual and mature ( I recommend for 18 and up ). Altough there is only 3 notes listed, this fragrance has so much depth at least on me, and lasts forever (no pun intended :) ). My boyfriend loves it and is great for being close. Vanilla scents like this really draw him in.

I love this! And my boyfriend, who is picky, loves it as well. It is feminine and warm. I DO smell the blackberry in this scent, with a hint of vanilla. Very sexy but not overtly so and not overpowering. I am surprised at how well this lasts on me too. I am def going to repurchase! Love this and Sensuous from Estee Lauder!

I fell in love with Forever at first sniff. This fragrance satisfies the gormand lover in me. It's probably the most feminine scent i own, yet i don't find it too powdery or musky. It's actually quite warm, soft and young to my nose, which makes it stand out from the other Dream Angels scents. The dry down on my skin is more sheer, letting the creamy vanilla notes to come through. I'd say go to VS and test this one out, definately recomended.

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!

I got the lotion and a mini perfume in a set during the semi-annual sale. It smells more sophisticated than sweet to me. It's very womanly, but not overpowering. Give it a try.

I really like the scent of the Dream Angels Forever. But I have to agree with the two above reviews. It smells exactly like Heavenly Stardust. I too have the Heavenly Stardust body mist which I purchased last Christmas and I swear it is the same thing! Anyway still a great scent. It's warm and creamy with hints of vanilla and musk! Definitely one of my favorites!

Hope you like caramel...because if you're anything like me, this is what you're going to be smelling like for the next few hours. Yes, this stuff had incredible staying power, but the sweetness was too cloying for me. I'd rather eat my candy than wear it!

HEAVENLY STARDUST. Revamped. I don't know who Victorias Secret thinks they're fooling. I have both fragrances and they are the SAME THING!! All that they did was dilute the Forever, but I swear it's the same fragrance and they know it. I mentioned this to a salesgirl and she sheepishly grinned, which let me know she knew it was a copy too but of course was too afraid to admit it. Shame. I guess the Heavenly Stardust didn't sell well which is probably why it was discontinued and they were so desperate to bring it back, they renamed it. Try again.

I have become very let down by Victoria Secret. I got a free sample of this perfume and I love it, it smells wonderful and creamy in the sample. I then bought the perfume because I loved it so much and the perfume out of the bottle smells somewhat different than the sample. It smells somewhat chemically and kind of has a hint of weird citrus. Not as creamy at all as what I loved about the sample. It also is not as strong and doesn't last as long from the bottle. When I use the sample I only need one spray and it is strong and lasts a very long time. From the bottle I bought I sprayed on 3 sprays and it is not even as strong as the one spray from the sample and doesn't last long at all. This is a great fragrance but I am very disappointed because I think they made the sample a little misleading. I think they had to have made it stronger and a little creamier, when they should have made it exactly like what the bottles would be like so we would know what we are getting into. For the price of this perfume I expected to get the best quality and it seems like I just got mediocre. The perfume is still good and I like it, it is just not what I thought it would be from the wonderful sample I got. I guess I'm gonna be trying my best to conserve my sample of this.

the notes listed are blackberry, iris and amber but let me tell you, if you are expecting to smell blackberries, you won't. I can't smell anything even remotely fruity or floral here. As previous reviewer said, its sweet and creamy scent, with light powder note. However, if you own their limited edition Heavenly Stardust(from this Christmas), you will notice that it smells pretty much identical. I own Heavenly Stardust and i couldn't tell the difference between the two. Don't get me wrong, i think its smells good but putting out the same scent with different name is kind of whack but BBW and VS are known for this.
Btw, this doesn't strike me as "young" scent but rather elegant and sophisticated so if you are tired of teenage fruity stuff that VS has so much of, try this and you may be pleasantly surprised. Lasting power is good-it lasted 3-4 hours on my skin which just eats up perfum so unlike lot of others VS scents which has terrible lasting power, this one is a winner.

I don't like any of the scents from the Dream Angels line because they have a powdery scent to them, especially Heavenly. I tried Forever because it is listed as a scent with "blackberry, iris, and amber." Like the rest of the line, it has a powdery scent to it. I love blackberry scents which is why I wanted to try this. However, I smell no blackberry in this perfume. To me, Forever smells sweet and creamy and like amber and powder. However, this scent has staying power, it stayed on me the whole day. I tried the Forever lotion and that one smells a little better than the EDP.
