This smells like bubble gum and something else. I can't quite call it. But the scent is very calming. Go get this! Lol :-)

The packaging is cute, and the scent sort of tangy, and a little citrusy.
It instantly reminded me of B&BW's charmed life.
if you liked that, you may like this one.
4/5 okay. Not a fan of it myself, but ok. Would not recommend to person on the fence.
Would not buy it again.
If you like the scent, won't stop you.

My boyfriend accompanied me to Victoria’s Secrets because I wanted to pick out a scent that he liked. I always wear “grown up” perfume like Chanel N5 because I want to think of my 24 year old self as being classy and sophisticated, but suddenly got nostalgic when I saw an old bottle of Love Spell body spray in my sisters room causing me to want to revisit the sweeter scents. After reading the scent descriptions on the Victoria’s Secret website, I decided it was between Love Spell, Pure Seduction and Hello Darling. My boyfriend liked all three in the order of Pure Seduction, Love Spell and Hello Darling. BUT, I instantly fell in love with Hello Darling! I had worn love spell before, in fact my sister and all her friends and my own wore it in our younger years so even though I like it and would still wear it today, I was eager to try something else. Pure Seduction smells EXACTLEY like Sweet Temptation to me, which is now discontinued and used to be my favorite. Hello Darling….the moment I smelled it I was like “I like this!” and I knew I had made up my mind. It’s hard to describe a scent as we all have different preferences, so I will try my best. Love Spell and Pure Seduction are very fruity sweet scents. Hello Darling in its adorable green and pink bottles, is a delicately sweet fragrance with a hint of floral. It’s light and feminine, sweet with a touch of floral. I think it’s a tiny bit more mature than the other two and even my mother, who’s not a fan of overly sweet scents, was surprised at how good this smelled. I purchased the lotion, body spray and perfume. A lot of people complain about the staying power of this, but even now as I write this review, I can still smell this on me and I put it on at 6AM. Granted, I do put a lot on, but it’s not overpowering. This is my favorite right now and I smelled them all! I also like the vanilla ones but the boyfriend does not like vanilla for whatever reason so I stuck with sweet florals. Endless Love also smelled good, but came in fourth to me and kind of smelled too much like a common body wash rather than a unique fragrance. I think the worst for me was the pear one, which I love pears so I found it odd that I didn’t like it, but oh well. All in all, this fragrance is great and I think anyone who smelled it would like it, even if they didn’t want to wear it.
EDIT: OKAY Sweet Temptation does not smell like Pure Seduction! Sweet Temptation used to be my favorite and when it was discontinued, I purchased Pure Seduction! So the bottle of body spray I have that I thought was Sweet Temptation is actually a bottle of Pure Seduction! LOL! I miss Sweet Temptation.....

I like this scent because its a nice fruity scent that smells good enough to eat BUT this can smell way too strong and musky sometimes.

I liked the refreshing smell of this , to me it kind of smells like apple soda , however the staying power is pretty non existent . I know you cant expect a body mist to be as strong or lasting as an edp but this seems to disappear as soon as you spray it on. Perhaps i should have bought one of the vanillay scents.

Trust me ladies, this one won't be there for long....all I have to day is goodbye darling! Lol!......this is an atrocious scent. I never returned a product quicker....no one who smelled this lined this at all. This would have been great as a refreshing sweet floral...I expected to smell something bright with a floral twist....this as a major letdown.

I was walking around Victoria's Secret finding a scent that I liked and my friend and I came across this one. It ended up being one of our favorite scents. I ended up buying this really cute package of the body lotion, fragrance mist, and shower gel for $15. The bottles were a little smaller than buying them all separately but it was worth it. If I had bought them all separately it would have been $10 more. The smell is extremely fruity (even though it says floral) and is pretty strong so if you aren't into strong scents don't come near this. It's a very young, fun scent. I haven't had a problem with the scent not lasting a long time, but either way, re-apply if you have to! I haven't had any problems with my skin either. I would definitely buy this again (:

After grabbing the mini lotion of this scent, I eagerly awaited the launch of the entire line. The lotion smelled delicious, and I knew I would just love this scent.
So I went to the mall this evening, and headed straight to the brightly coloured "Hello Darling" bottles on display at the front of the store and grabbed the tester for the body mist and gave the back of my hand a spritz.
The scent was very sharp and citrussy...pleasant and clean, but nearly a dead ringer for B&BW's White Citrus.
As I wandered around the store, sampling other scents, I kept sniffing the back of my hand, trying to decide whether I liked the "Hello Darling"...and at one point, I became confused, because I couldn't smell anything at all. Which hand was it, left or right? Was it the back of the hand or the wrist? Did I actually spray myself, or was the nozzle turned around backwards??
I went back over to the display and got a squeeze of HD lotion and I followed it with another hit of body mist, hoping the layering would make the scent last longer than the 10 minutes it had lasted initially.
I wandered about for another 10 or 15 minutes and gave my hand another sniff...after only 15 minutes, the scent was completely gone, and I think I would have had better luck spraying coloured water on my skin.
I have been sorely disappointed with the staying power of Victoria's new scents...just about all the new Garden scents are so watered down (they call it a "touch of scent" hmmph!) that you will go through 1/4 of a bottle a day just to be able to detect a scent.
I liked the scent (when I could smell it), but it's not worth buying it if I can't tell which hand I just put it on :(
The only plus is, I love the packaging. The new Victoria's Secret Garden packaging is gorgeous. I'm a sucker for pretty bottles, and that's one thing they have going for them.
I just wish the stuff inside those bottles was as effective :(

Hello Darling is another floral fruity fragrant from the Fantasies collection. Basically, it has white nectarine and peony. I love smelling it from the bottle but sadly it wasn't compatible with my skin. Maybe it has too much alcohol instead of fragrant. The bottle comes is a banana green color which is kind of different from the rest of the generic colors in this line of fragrant.
