One time my sister got the bottle of its lotion as a gift from her senior during her ojt days. We are much more indulge of its scent, very rare and so mild for the nose. I'll never get enough of it's fragrance. Sad to say it doesn't have a eu de perfume or a body mist available.

A few years ago my boyfriend bought me the lotion, bodywash/bubble bath and massage oil from BBW in Black currant and vanilla. We used it up within a few months. I just looooove the smell! So much that I just bought a bottle of the body mist from ebay for a steep price (it is discontinued).. can't wait to get it! Worth every dime. I have a bottle of the Jasmine Vanilla and while I love it, I miss the black currant and vanilla! I don't think it smells like an old lady, at all! In fact, when I wear either scent I always get compliments and people asking me what I'm wearing.
Highly recommended especially if you enjoy spicy, complex perfume that isn't too overpowering.

I stood in the store smelling this for ages and finally took a travel size home because I just couldnt decide whether I like it or not! On first scent I pick up the blackcurrant scent which I love, but then I absorb it a little more and get the vanilla and some sort of musky scent....and then I sort of hate it. I've never been so on the fence about a single scent and it fascinates me because I truly love and hate it at the same time. Ultimately, I'd use this as a nighttime aromatherapy hand lotion or something but I dont think I'd ever wear this out of the house. It has such a unique sophisticated scent but its partially masked by an old lady kind of sugary musk which is unfortunate.

Such a great and sophisticated scent. Definitely would say this is aromatherapeutic, but I wouldn't say it is in a "sensual" way but more of a comforting way.

Love the packaging. Never had a problem with the pump, but i'm always afraid i'll drop the bottle (it's made of glass).

The scent is very sophisticated but will make you wonder "Why didn't someone else think of this?"

Other than the glass bottle, the other problem I have is that it's very expensive. Wait until it goes on sale to buy so you don't break the bank.

This smells so good. My preference is deep, spicy mellow fragrances and this lotion is right up my alley. And for a lotion the fragrance lingers for a long time, like an EDP. Love to wear this at night and wake up to find my sheets smelling just like the lotion. Very comforting.

This is my new favorite BBW scent! Much better than the other scent in the line, Jasmine Vanilla. But anyway, I got this lotion 2/$20 and I love it. The scent is really divine, I like it so much that I bought not only the lotion but the sugar scrub and the hand soap as well. My bf loves it too! ;) I also absolutely love the packaging, I prefer the pump to the regular line's bottle. I always have such a hard time getting lotion out of those.... Highly recommended product!

I love using this body lotion at night after a long, hot bath. The fragrance is a combination of musk and vanilla, earthy, yet not too sweet. It's not as moisturizing as other lotions I have used, but I gave it 5 lippies because of the gorgeous fragrance. It's one of my favorite BBW scents, along with Sensual Amber.

This is a nice one. I got it with a coupon for a free aromatherapy product. I wanted to try it because I have an Italian perfume that is black currant and freesia and I would love to find a lotion to match it. It's a little more woodsy on me than I wanted. It almost smells like aftershave on me. Luckily, I like men's scents for myself so that doesn't bother me. I've been debating on mixing it with my BBW Sheer Freesia to see if that matches my perfume better. I'll definately keep this though because it's a great scent.

Has anyone else noticed that this smells similiar to Sensual Amber but with a fruity kick? It amazes me how often BBW repackage the same products, and call it something else. I do love the smell of this though : ) It's so sensual. I smell a bit of incense too.

I love this stuff, love the dark spicy scent. I got this a few days after I left a crappy job for a new one, so the scent reminds me of those days.

Can't find it in the stores now. I'm beginning to wonder if BBW isn't deliberately trying to lose me as a customer.
