My Take on Bath and Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla Fine Fragrance Mist:
The design on the packaging is nothing too fancy or catchy, rather looks a little boring and repetitive. Unlike some other fragrances including Secret Wonderland and Amber Blush had better designs which I would say was worth half of the money spent on them. That said, the packaging and design still stands tall and elegant like any other standard BBW variant. The packaging is very much travel friendly, the atomizer works smooth and has not caused any mess. Since the bottle is of plastic, it is not bulky and hence can be easily carried in a bag.
A sweet ripe fruity blend of raspberry, strawberry and a slight touch of black current. Now, by the above description, you can see that the notes mentioned by BBW, is partially misguiding. I was expecting for a good blend of ripe raspberries and vanilla from this fragrance, but I find not even a hint of vanilla in this and it’s a huge let down from what the BBW had claimed. That said, it still impressed me with its tart fruity nature of scent, but it failed to deliver a unique scent which I was looking for. People who do not prefer fruity scents should definitely stay away from this range, as this is a straight up fruity scent and stays the same until it completely fades away. Beauties who adore ripe fruity scents instead of the candied ones, this scent would be the perfect choice.
Longevity and Sillage:
This fragrance mist has average staying power of 2 to 3 hours after which it completely fades. I usually reapply any fragrance mist few times throughout the day, so this is not a major con for me. The sillage is average and one can detect the smell only if the person is a little close, however, this is the case with most of the fragrance mists.
Since the fragrance is nothing but a berry fruity blend, it would be best for everyday use when you need that extra burst of energy in the early mornings after the shower.
However, I would not recommend this for any special occasions since it’s a very linear fruity scent. For any special occasion, I would always prefer a richer and deeper fragrance, but that is again a personal preference.
Overall, the BBW Black raspberry vanilla fine fragrance mist smells of a rich-ripe-berries blend, has a decent longevity and a few spritz of this on a bright summer day would easily perk up the senses, and thus it is apt for summers and spring.
Summing up the pros and cons:
Pros of Bath and Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla Fine Fragrance Mist:
- Smells of ripe-fruity-berry blend, which would be a real treat to beauties who prefer fruity scents.
- Perfect pick me up fragrance for summers.
- Does not stain clothes.
- Does not irritate the skin.
- Packaging is travel friendly and mess-free.
- Smell lasts for 2-3 hours which is pretty good considering it’s a fragrance mist.
Cons of Bath and Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla Fine Fragrance Mist:
- The design on the bottle looks quite repetitive and unflattering.
- Totally misguiding fragrance notes description by BBW.
- Though BBW products are available on various Indian online shopping portals, the price tag still repels me from buying more, whereas in their official store, we could get the same product for less than half the price we pay here.
- BBW does not ship to India.
Would I Repurchase Bath and Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla Fine Fragrance Mist?
No, there are so many more fragrances which are much more unique, so I would never be going back to this variant.
Until next time, stay gorgeous.
