Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette Review
Hi IMBB readers! How’s the weather over where you are? Where I am, summer is already in full swing and I’ve found myself arranging my fragrance collection into two piles—summer scents and non-summer scents. The latter being perfumes that are too heavy, sweet, floral, or anything I can’t bear to wear in hot weather, and the other pile, the summer fragrances, being citruses, and light, uncomplicated scents that make me feel cool and refreshed.
Last month my lovely aunt from the US came for a visit and gave me some goodies, most of them stuff from Bath and Body Works and Victoria’s Secret. One of the new fragrances added to my collection was Bath and Body Works’ Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette.
Japanese Cherry Blossom Perfume
According to Bath and Body Works, the Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette is a seductive and mysterious floral scent inspired by the exotic gardens of Japan, created by master perfumers who have blended Asian pear, mimosa petals, Kyoto rose, and Himalayan cedarwood.
Its top notes are: Asian Pear, Fuji Apple, and Ume Plum.
Its heart notes: Japanese Cherry Blossom, Butterfly Lily, Kyoto Rose, Mimosa Petals, and Hedione.
And its base notes: Vanilla Rice, Imperial Amber, Silk Musk, Cinnamon Incense, Himalayan Cedarwood, and Creamy Sandalwood.
The Eau de Toilette is priced $29.50 for 2.5 fl oz at the Bath and Body Works website. My bottle came in a set with a travel-size lotion in the same scent and is in a smaller size, 1 fl oz. I actually find this size very convenient, and cute! It fits easily into my smaller bags and should last me some time, plus I actually might be able to finish it up, unlike my 100ml perfume bottles.
1 oz bottle of BBW Japanese Cherry Blossom EDT
Reading through the product description and the fragrance notes, some might think that this would be too warm for summer, but I put it into my summer-fragrances pile. It’s not a citrusy or fresh/sporty scent, but it’s definitely nice, simple, and easy to wear. I like variety in my fragrances and at times I get tired of wearing my light, citrusy summer staples. Bath and Body Works’ Japanese Cherry Blossom has a little bit of spice which I was surprised to find I liked. It’s fruit with florals and spice, rather like a light, oriental fragrance, and I find it just wearable enough for summer.
Perfume bottle uncapped
It starts out as a light combination of fruits and florals, pleasant and feminine, and after a few minutes my nose detects the addition of spices, then it eventually dries down to a slightly spicy, unisex scent of amber, sandalwood, and vanilla. I don’t find it heavy at all, and when I’m dressed all girly I prefer using this fragrance to sort of balance out my look with its hint of spice.
I’ve tried a handful of Bath and Body Works’ fragrance mists, but this was my first time to try their Eau de Toilette. While the lasting power is better than that of the fragrance mist’s, it’s not a very big improvement and only lasts about two hours on me.
The Japanese Cherry Blossom scent is also available in various other forms and I’d love to have a bottle of the shower gel to layer with my perfume. I bet it would smell lovely and rich during a cool shower! I thought I knew what I liked, but it’s always great to explore different fragrances and be surprised, like I did. I would recommend Bath and Body Work’s Japanese Cherry Blossom perfume to those looking for a simple, casual, affordable oriental or floral-oriental scent light enough for warm weather.

:waytogo: review ida..infact i recently got my self TBS JCB body mist. :yahoo: .is its fragrance similar to dat one ?:) ?:)
Thank you Preeti! :)) :)) I have TBS’s JCB in body butter and shower gel and tried the EDT at the store. They’re pretty different. TBS’s is a light, clean floral with some fruit and woods, while BBW’s I would say is a bit more rich- florals with spice and a hint of musk. :))

Thanks Swati! :)) :)) I know how overwhelming choosing a perfume can be. Perhaps start with your favorite scent category to narrow down choices. :)) :))
Ida..its so good to see you here again 🙂
Your perfume reviews are so fab always 😀
Ritika, thank you. :)) :)) :)) Am glad to see you again too. 🙂
Nice Review….. I have the body mist and i really love the fragrance. I plan to buy the perfume soon.
Thanks Amruta! :)) I think layering the body mist with the EDT would make the scent last a lot longer. 🙂
