One of the best VS body mists, it is warm and spicy and smells like vanilla and cranberries. I am so in love with this scent I got the body lotion as well.
Unfortunately the staying power isn't very good and most of the time I can't even detect the scent more than two hours after I spray it on, but perhaps it's just because I get used to it after some time.
Love the ''new'' packaging as well. Yes, it's not cheap (12$ if you buy just one) but it will last you ages.

I kinda liked it at first because its unusual with the cranberry smell. I can't even recall cranberries in any perfume I've ever bought. I know why now. This smells terrible once its on the skin. Too strong like potpourri. I am a huge lover of sweet smells ans I love victoriassecret this one however is bad. It smells like pretty potpourri. I don't like this at all. Yuck.

This is my favorite Victoria's Secret fragrance, and the only one I've ever truly fallen in love with out of the few I can stomach.
I've always had crappy experiences with VS fragrances. On me, they have no staying power, and each immediate spritz is like a slap of alcohol to my nose, or the dry-down is yucky. Plus, most VS fragrances smell too juvenile to me. Their packaging and names are cute, but most of them are just blech.
Give Me Love, however, is different. It's perfect. I'm addicted. It's probably one of the most complex scents VS has ever created. Well, to my olfactories. It's impressive considering it's not one of their more expensive eau de toilettes. It's gorgeous, rich, warm, sexy, with cranberry and vanilla notes that, once settled onto the skin, are even more complex. I'm not too savvy on perfume notes, but I can tell what's a flat foody or floral smell, and what's more intriguing and vague. Give Me Love is definitely the latter.
I use the lotion and body spray together, which creates more staying power and a more powerful dry-down. I've found that the lotion is more strongly scented than the spray, and overall smells more concentrated, so I like the lotion a bit more. I still love the spray to death and spray it all over myself, including my clothes and coats. No initial alcohol nose-hair-burning sting, either.
Oh, and the packaging! Absolutely gorgeous deep red that, like the fragrance itself, is perfect for the holidays. I love the glamorous silver font and layout of the labels. Victoria's Secret always sucks me in with their chic graphics. As an artist (and a pretty vain one at that, hehe), I love seeing something that's visually flattering on my dresser.
The only qualm I have with this fragrance is its lasting power. It doesn't linger for too long, which is disappointing. I'm a sucker and still gave it 5 lippies anyway. Hah!
I love this fragrance so much that I decided to spread the love. I got a second body spray with the buy 3 for $25 deal and will give it to my friend for Christmas. Hopefully she loves it as much as I do.
Way to go, Vicky. Give Me Love is a winner. Let's just hope you bring this one back next winter!

I've fallen in love with Give Me Love EDT. Although described by VS as frosted cranberry warmed by rich vanilla, I feel that this fragrance is so much more complex when on the skin. I'd describe it as a warm and sexy interpretation of cranberry, but with subtle fruity notes and a burbon-like vanilla base. It has good lasting power, but isn't overly strong. On me, the notes develope quite fast so i get the vanilla with a hint of sweet and this is what lingers all day. Definately a cozy and alluring fragrance to warm up your holiday season. If you like VS Dream Angels Forever give this one a sniff. Unfortunately it's limited edition...but still worth it.

This smells absolutely delish! It's a warm weather kinda scent and it definitely lasts on me. I love the vanilla in this but the cranberry mixes really well with it. Just found a keeper!

I absolutely love this product! I bought a bunch of these at my local VS on sale 7 for 35 and, in the bottle, I didn't like the scent very much. However, once I put it on, I fell in love! This smells absolutely wonderful on my skin! It smells like a creamy vanilla with only a little bit of cranberry, but still it is a wonderful winter scent. My boyfriend loves it too ;)

This smells almost exactly like last Christmas's limited edition Naughty and Nice. This is somewhat fruitier, with more creamy vanilla, and sweeter overall. Otherwise it's virtually the same, and I was not in love with N&N. If it had a darker amber/patchouli/sandalwood base I'd like it a lot more. I was excited about it when I first heard of it, but then I smelled it and it was just too much like N&N, which is nice but not extra special. It tries to be sexy and sophisticated but it's just eh.

When I purchased the EDT at my local VS, all of the staff who noticed my selection exclaimed, "that smells so good!" Give Me Love is a fun and festive blend of vanilla with a hint of cranberry. It's similar to others in the berry-vanilla vein, but also unique because cranberry scents are relatively rare and the vanilla is not too heavy or cloying. If there had been a bit more of the tart berry and a tad less vanilla I would have given it 5 stars, but I'll make do by layering with a fruitier cranberry lotion. The 3.4 oz. limited-edition EDT was a steal at $25 (and I had a coupon that brought it down to $15). I'd definitely recommend this scent for the holidays and beyond!

This is the perfect scent for the holidays! The cranberries and the warm vanilla scents work so well together and it really reminds me of the good times in winter. I would definitely recommend :)
