MY VICTORIA'S SECRET FRAGRANCE COLLECTION




Hi lovelies! Perfume and fragrances are one of those things that I could easily spend all of my money on if I wasn't careful, and since Victoria's Secret came to the UK, the brand has all but taken over my perfume shelf! So, in this post I thought I'd show you all my collection and do some mini reviews to share my thoughts with you all.

Strawberries and Champagne Body Spray
"A tempting, fruity fragrance. Indulge in Strawberries & Champagne, a splash of flirtation with wild strawberries and sparkling champagne." Honestly, this is probably the scent I go to least of all the scents, as it's quite a 'little girly' scent in my opinion. It kind of reminds me of perfumes you had as a kid, very sweet and a little childish, but it's a cute, pretty scent and I did like using it during the summer but I probably wouldn't buy this again. If you like super sweet, very girly scents then I'd definitely recommend giving this a go! I think this would be a fab gift for a younger female relative for Christmas or a Birthday. For a body spray, this is very long lasting, particularly if you get it on your hair or clothes. So it'd be great for girls at school as it's light, but would last the whole day!

Sensual Blush Body Spray
"Indulge in Sensual Blush, a tempting blend of pink lotus & sultry woods." Sensual Blush is a more grown up and slightly deeper scent as it's more of a floral/ woody scent. However, it's still sweet and fruity, which I love. This is the kind of scent I'd go for if I fancy something a little more 'sophisticated'. Again, it does last a long time for a body spray, but I definitely want to get this in the perfume too.

Love Rush Body Spray
"Delight in Love Rush, an effervescent blend of wild currant and bright lily from our VS Fantasies collection." Love Rush is from VS Sunny Brights collection, which is exactly how I'd describe it. It's a bright, summery fragrance. Super girly and feminine, it's a perfect fruity floral, which is my favourite type of scent. This was my go to throughout the summer, great for freshening up during the day! For some reason, I don't find this is quite as long lasting as some of the other scents, but it's very pretty none the less. 

Pure Daydream Body Spray & EDT
"Delight in Pure Daydream, a bright blend of fresh pearl orchid and pink currant." Pure Daydream is by far my favourite scent from the VS fantasies collection, hence why I have it in Perfume and Body Spray (and body lotion and shower gel too!!). It's a super pretty, girly, fruity floral. If scents had colours, this would be a pink scent. It lasts all day, particularly when you use the body spray and perfume together. If you love a very girly, fruity scent, this is definitely for you!

Pure Seduction EDT
"Entice in Pure Seduction, a passionate romance of succulent red plum and sweet freesia." Pure Seduction is another of my favourites, it's slightly deeper than Pure Daydream, making it more appropriate for a night out or evenings. It's another 'pink' scent, if anyone knows what I even mean by that! You can probably tell that there's a slight running theme with my fragrances of choice. 

Such A Flirt EDT
"A vibrant, floral fragrance. Steal the spotlight in Such a Flirt, a tease of tempting starfruit and white orchid." I think Such A Flirt is very appropriately named as it is just that, a pretty flirty scent. It says starfruit and orchid, but it just reminds me of watermelon! I love this for everyday, it's a summery scent, but to be honest, I wear summery scents all year round! If you like the smell of watermelon, or like quite a fresh fruity scent, this is definitely worth a whiff!

Bombshell EDP
"A glamorous blend of purple passion fruit, Shangri-la peony and vanilla orchid." This is my only 'proper' perfume from Victoria's Secret, I'm sure a lot of you will know of Bombshell as it's such a well loved scent in the Blogosphere! This is a gorgeous sweet, fruity floral with a slightly deeper base, it's the most 'grown up' of all my VS scents, but it's still light and pretty enough for every day, which I love. This is easily one of my favourite perfumes in my entire collection and I've had a couple of people say this scent reminds them of me whenever they smell it and I am definitely okay with that!

So, what do you think? Do you have a favourite VS scent? What shall I try next?
Also, I found this ebay link with a lot of VS body mists if you fancy trying one but can't get to a store!

  9. Since so many vloggers and bloggers rave about the VS fragrances I've been wanting to try them out for the longest time. Unfortunately I don't think they're available in Australia, or at least I havn't come across them. Love the mini reviews. You describe scents so well :)
