ok. Why am I not crazy for this fragrance? I think it may be for the reason that others like it. It is too light and sweet for me. It reminds me of old fashioned "toilet water/splash". It definitely will not overpower the wearer, unless it is bathed in, but I just find it boring and not original. It does not smell like amber to me......almost like a light musk. I do love the bottle and price. Huge bottle for around $20.00 at TJ Maxx. The bottle is sleek and "all business". Overall, just ok.

Oh BBW......they seem to have a knack for putting some great fragrances on the back burner. I really like this. It smells like a fresh peeled tangerine to me on the initial spray. It morphs into a nice, clean and easy to wear fragrance. Not great lasting power, but for casual days.....that's fine. Simple, easy packaging that fits in a draw or cabinet. I like.

The comparisons to Clinique Happy are spot on. Mary Kays' Embrace Happiness is a lighthearted fragrance that would be almost too sweet but it dries down to a nice fresh fragrance. I get the citrus in this fragrance but a little soft floral to balance it all out. The bottle is plain...no big deal. I especially like it because the price was excellent from ebay. Spring and Summer for this fragrance only.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Sweet Pea Body Spray

Fruity and floral.....the fruity is king here. Together, the fragrance is fresh and light. It is also a little sweet for my taste. It dries down to a fresh fragrance but, on me, it does not last long. Not the body spray, lotion or EDT. Basic BBW packaging. Nice for Spring, but I do think there are better Spring fragrances.
Forget all other lip balms. These lip smackers by Bonne Bell are the perfect texture and light tint that matches the lip. Tasty too! No other lip balm comes close. The price is outstanding.
Well, I purchased this with a lot of other fragrances on e-bay. I'm pretty sure it is discontinued. I was also concerned that the fragrance might be past it's prime. Nope. It is a lovely floral that dries down to a soft clean fragrance. For the price I paid for it, I would definitely purchase again.....but it's no longer available.
This is a nice floral and some would say, right off, that it smells like a "grandma" fragrance. Well, my mother wore this when she was alive and when I smell it, I think of her. I'll agree, I don't think of this as a "young" fragrance. I would not wear it, but for a more mature woman who prefers feminine fragrances, White Shoulders is worth looking into.

Some say this is too sweet and I agree....for about the first 5 minutes. Then, this morphs into a fresh, clean floral. Nice for Spring. Pretty color, too. I think this is a great "base" lotion for those that like floral fragrances and want to layer. It does not last very long
This is a pleasant fragrance. Nothing really "special" about it, though. It does last a long time and that is a plus. I guess it just reminds me of a lot of other fragrances that show up for a year or two and then they are gone, but another one will take its' place.....with a different name. I'm calling you out, Avon. This is a good Spring/Summer fragrance that is not too pricey.

If this was not quite so sweet in the first blast, I would have given this a 5. It does dry down to a really nice fragrance, but it takes about 2 hours for me to "warm up" to the fragrance. It would be appropriate for a business setting if lightly spritzed but I really see this more as a "date" perfume.
ok. I Think this is a BBW fragrance that did not get picked up to be distributed nationally. I think it was tested in some stores. Anyway, if you like Clinique Simply, you will like this. It is a lovely spice that, while not very strong or long lasting on the skin, seems to linger on my clothing. I was catching the scent about 8 hours after putting it on. I think it would be best for a casual Fall/Winter but it could work in warm weather too because it is not too strong. I bought a few bottles of it on ebay and I'm glad I did. It is unusual, but very nice.

If you love a floral fragrance, you will love this. It is so fresh and Springtime. My sister gave some to my mom. She wore it before she passed away and I love when I get a whiff of this. It reminds me of my mom. Bath & Body Works needs to get back to this type of fragrance. Not too sweet, just right.
Fragrances -The Healing Garden - White Tea Theraphy
kdm1 3/1/2011 5:29:00 PM
This is discontinued. I like it. I still have a body spray (not a cologne or perfume). It is really nice for the early Spring time. It is lighter than the green tea fragrance that The Healing Garden put out. To me, this just really smells clean and fresh.
Let me tell you, this is a great buy if you can find it. It is a nice floral that seems to stay pretty true from start to dry down. I got mine for about $2.00 for a .5 oz. I'm wearing it now, in February, to get me ready for Spring.

This fragrance is very easy to wear. It would be very nice for casual days. At first, it was a little sharp, but it mellows into a lovely cream/vanilla fragrance that wears close to the skin. Does not last long..........that is why I gave it a 4. Pretty nice fragrance.
