Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Amber Romance Body Splash

I've been hooked on the VS garden line since I was in my late teens. I love this scent. I feel it complements some of my other fragrances nicely, lasts all day, and the price point is attractive.It's a beautiful warm scent,sexy and it won't leave me smelling like a baked good.
I must say that I've been searching for an amber and patchouli fragrance that works w/ my chemistry and i have found it in prada.Yes @ first spritz i recall angel but it dries down to it's own beautiful scent.Neither i or my DH can stand angel and he absolutely loves this on me. I agree that the staying power of this is lacking but since i love the scent i'll live with it.I heard that they will bring out a pure perfume in smaller size of course sometime later in the season.I tried layering this w/ amber lotion from l'occitene and it created a very nice base.
I went to a Nordies. fragrance festival about 5 years ago and Angel was the One they were promoting. My DH absolutely hated angel and out of all the fragrances there he liked Allure. He bought me a gift set and it just works really well with me. I do get compliments on this one and the scent IMO is classic and memorable.

I have to add my two scents to this product. I have it both in fragrance and body products and do use it though not daily. My Mom bought this for me one christmas when it was released so it has a good memory for me. I do get compliments on this one (my brother in law) bought it for his wife after he smelled it on me and she loves it. It's a pretty floral fragrance very similar to Armani she (i think this VS has better staying power). The one drawback is that I smell this on so many people which sometimes is a turn off. But if you like Armani she try this.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - body splash (any scent)

I think these are good body splashes with far more sexy scents IMHO than BBW, whose scents I don't care much for. The staying power is good specially when pairing with the lotion. I also find that their scents compliment my other perfumes nicely. I like vanilla, amber romance ,and a few others I can't think of the name right now.
I received this as a Mother's day gift along with the body and bath products. It will not be a signature fragrance, for that I like more complex and not so mainstream scents but it is a pretty floral for spring/summer or going to work out. It's pretty in it's own way.If layered staying power is ok.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Rapture EDT or EDP

I just have to add my review on this one.It's like an old friend. I've been wearing it on and off for at least 8 years and it still gets compliments every time I wear it(specially from the male species).Has great lasting power and it is distinctive. If your chemistry works with it try it. And a plus it won't break the bank.
I love these body milks.They are moisturizing and the scents are great. I have in rose neroli, vanilla and amber. I wished the scent specially in the vanilla lasted longer but (specially now that VS new formulas are terrible IMHO) I will repurchase these.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - Amber Body Milk (lotion)

I love this lotion both for the scent and the moisturizing abilities.I have extremely dry skin,foregoing lotion after a shower is not an option and this works. I wish the scent lasted longer but I'll still repurchase.
I AM IN LOVE WITH ALL THEIR PRODUCTS IN GENERAL. i LOVE THIS SCENT IT'S GREAT ON IT'S OWN OR LAYERED WITH OTHER FRAGRANCES. i HAVE TRIED MINE WITH Jo Malone red roses and it's awesome. Also with orange blossom. I think this vanilla is more grown up than BBW, VS.I tries both VS and l'occitane one on each arm to test scent and lasting ability and this won hands down.
YES i TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE REVIEW BELOW, i also purchased a few of the new hand and body creams and got the same powdery effect that was rather drying to my skin.I am disappointed with this new formula. I haven't tried the new formula in the lotion but upon smelling from the container when testing in the store I detected a strong plastic type smell. This is a huge turn off for me.
I smelled this tons of times, even purchased and then returned, I kept thinking nothing unique or remarkable just a nice fragrance.But my DH absolutely loves this a bought me the fragrance and body products. I do enjoy wearing and get compliments on this one.You need to layer as the staying power for the fragrance alone isn't very lasting.

I bought this when it first came out and still use it.I also love this fragrance for it's distinct scent that is sultry and sexy. I also must note that I have gotten "bad" bottles of this on 3 ocasions. And in this case the scent was just unbearable.I'm not sure weather this particular fragrance is just unstable or what. I recommend purchasing this from a reputable store so that you can return if this happens.
Fragrances -Dolce & Gabbana - Dolce & Gabbana for Women

This was what started my love affair with dolce and gabbana.I have never been without this fragrance in 8 years.Ilove it and the compliments never stop when wearing this.It is a bit spicy but unlike anything else out there.It's strong and it's there to be noticed, not for the timid.This scent is sexy and all woman.
I love this fragrance for warm weather, although it can be worn anytime IMOO.This has a slight sweet scent but fresh and sexy.Totally reminds of Italian summer.
