YUCK!! Smells too much like an old lady! I guess they like VS, too, but this one is not for me!
Great scent--perfect in summertime--sweet, but not sickening, and husband loves it~
I love this!! It's probably my fave VS scent--not too heavy, very feminine, not too food-y or candy-like. Doesn't last very long, even if you layer the products, so I carry the body spray with me.

I would describe this as smelling just like Herbal Essences shampoo! Sort of floral-generic...sorry, VS, this is not your best...
I love this gloss! I just wish it lasted a little longer!

I like this scent, I agree with other reviewers that it's a little heavy for summertime. I bought some on a big sale over the summer and pulled it out this past winter and enjoyed it over Christmas--maybe because it reminds me a lot of the "Frosted Snowdrop" scent from Christmas a few years back.
Boo on Ahava! I don't understand all the hype, to tell the truth. It doesn't really seem to "pull" any extra moisture into my skin. IT's just like any other lotion, which is fine, but I can spend a lot less for the same effects. I also had trouble with the scent--too strong and unpleasant to me!

I love this stuff. The scent makes you want to eat it, though!! The product seems to melt into your skin--i love that--i guess that's why they call it butter. The scent doesn't last long, but that's ok, since it won't interfere with other fragrances you wear. It does keeep my skin very very very soft--I especially like to use this after tanning.
I enjoy the scents that Yankee offers--mostly their "green" scents like the new Mint or Greenhouse. Yum! So fresh! My only complaint is that they do make an awful lot of soot--those little metal "plates" with the heart or star cut-outs seem to help when you lay them over the jar opening, but save yourself a little $$ and just buy them at a craft store for less than half the price!! The price of yankee seems a little high since you can get comparable candles for less, but they do have a much greater fragrance selection.

I love this scent--it's by far my most favorite from BBW. Doesn't smell sweet or too much like something I would eat! Just a nice tropical smell, and it really travels through my house. I have 14 foot ceilings in my main living area and sometimes I think candles scents get lost in all that space, but this one can be smelled throughout the house! Try the oil too! It's just as good!
I love this lotion--it's perfect for summer in every way--not too heavy, good moisturization, amazing summery smell, doesn't get sticky when you're outside in the heat. It's not summer yet, but I already bought a new bottle of this just so I can smell like summer!

I really like this product--it's especially good when I'm in a hurry or feeling too lazy to put lotion on after a shower. The only problem is the smell!! It smells like a cleaning product you would use in the bathroom!! Very lemon-y and almost chemical...BBW should make this unscented or even in one of the regular scents. Other than that, it's great. Super moisturizing and makes my skin look dewy.
