I really love fragrances. And I choose my fragrances very carefully as I prefer them to be quite unique and unusual. I normally lean towards sweet or floral scents and there is not actually that many good perfumes in both of these categories. Even more rarely you can find a descent fragrance at an affordable price. Today I would love to share with you my thoughts on one of the fragrances that has become an essential part of my fragrance collection this summer.
I got a tester when I was at Victoria’s Secret store a couple of weeks ago. And after sniffing it for several minutes I decided to try it on skin and since that moment I just couldn’t leave the store without it.
Victoria’s Secret Victoria Eau De Parfum ($52.000 for 1.7fl.oz and $68.00 for 3.4 fl.oz) is fresh, sexy and totally irresistible. It’s everything you love about Victoria’s Secret in a sparkling blend of red berries, Victoria rose and crème brûlée.
This fragrance is called Victoria and it comes in a very cute clear glass bottle with an adorable rose bow and a geometric cap. It does not pretend something it is not even on this stage – that is what I really like about it in the first place. The scent pyramid is very simple yet intriguing – it is based on a mix of red berries, Victoria rose and sweet crème brûlée. This fragrance also received the Fragrance Foundation Award in 2014.
It does not have the usual scent stages of dry down and stays the same throughout the wear and look for no sillage in it – there is none. It does not open up with any particular note rather with all scent elements as you feel the slight sour taste of red berries framed by floral deep rose on the sweet base of crème brûlée – all at once. It sounds very clear, bright and fresh like fancy, happy and exciting life. It is so easy to wear that I reach for it more and more often this summer. It is not too sweet yet not too watery that makes it unique in it’s own way as you can rarely encounter such a simple but individual fragrance.
If you are looking for a summer fragrance that is light, sweet and easy to wear – do check this one out as you won’t be disappointed. It is a very beautiful, intimate and innocent fragrance that will become a gorgeous reminder of sweet summer nights full of secrets, hopes and excitement.
Thank you very much for your attention.
Have an amazing day!
Hugs and kisses,
