VANILLA & MUSK
Ah Victoria’s Secret. I went to the one in Trafford Centre Manchester, the closest one to me and I spent a good half an hour spraying and sniffing each scent in the VS Fantasies body care series. After going back and forth, the vanilla lace products is the only one I like and I love vanilla. I’ll have to try the scents in the other series. I had purchased the body mist, body wash and body lotion.
This is a wonderful warm vanilla and musk scent where you would think the vanilla would smell like a cake but it doesn’t due to the musk and the other underlying notes. This is more of a floral vanilla, classy, feminine, innocent, mature scent without making you and others think of burnt vanilla desserts. It isn’t too strong or too sweet yet not too light.
The body wash and lotion wasn’t as moisturising as I had hoped it to be. The wash foamed up lovely. Its scent isn’t too long lasting, quite weak actually. The lotion is thick and left my skin feeling soft and smooth but after a few hours, my skin became dry and flakey again (disgusting I know, the joys of dry skin during winter ey!). It soaks into my skin well but I would need to keep reapplying during the day. The scent lasted a lot longer than the wash. The body mist scent had lasted the longest. You can use the mist by itself and you’re sorted for the day.
Using these three combined makes the scent last so much longer. I had used all three last night and could smell it when I woke up and can still slightly smell it now since it’s been more than 12 hours. They smelt different, a weird different when I had first applied but it had lightened up to that wonderful scent after a few minutes. Unsure if my nose has something to do with this.
If you love vanilla scents, this is for you! I love this and would most definitely keep purchasing the body mist rather than all three but it the wash and lotion might work better on me during the summer rather than winter. With the 3 for £24 or 5 for £30 deals, you can mix and match and layer scents. It’s worth it.
Have you tried any Victoria’s Secret skin and beauty range?
