Hope you are doing well. The summers in Dubai do come with scorching heat but the fun part is the Sale on the stores that helps to keep you sane with the retail therapy. On one of the weekends, I saw an overly crowded BBW Store. I walked in and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is that time of the year when the store does offer heavy discounts. I am a huge BBW fan. I was overwhelmed with the number of people, pleasant fragrance and discount in the store.
I grabbed the fine fragrance mist – Wild HoneySuckle. As soon as I sniffed it, I knew I was getting it. I also bought the body lotion from the same collection. The body lotion is already reviewed by Tusharika here. Read on further to know more about the mist.

My experience with Bath & Body Works Wild Honeysuckle Fine Fragrance Mist
One can completely miss the ingredients list as it is mentioned in very fine print at the bottom of the spray after peeling the label price and barcode label. The fragrance mist comes with the sturdy standard transparent plastic BBW bottle with the spray nozzle secured in a cap. The bottle is not very travel friendly as it is bulky. Also, the plastic cap may crack while travelling. The transparent bottle helps to know how much product is still remaining in the bottle. The fragrance is a flowery-fruity fragrance (higher on flowery side).
While explaining a fragrance, I always do think there is a need for an app or internet app that could help a reader to sniff at the fragrance while they roll the cursor over the description of the fragrance. 😀 I am sure that time will come soon.
Coming back to fragrance, it lacks longevity. It stays on me for an hour or two. I do spray it over a moisturizer or a lotion to make the fragrance last longer. I feel like spraying it again but I refrain myself from carrying it thinking about the cap and the size of the bottle.
• Smells pleasant.
• Transparent packing.
• Affordable. Sale price is a plus. It is a steal deal at this price.
• Quantity will easily last more than couple of months. I have been using it from two weeks and it still looks like a new unused bottle.
• Bulky bottle. Not travel friendly. Plastic cap may develop cracks.
• Availability in India. It is high time BBW should open a store in India. Though the products are available on the online selling portals like Flipkart, Snapdeal, etc.
• Sensitive noses may find smell over-powering initially.
• Fragrance does not last long.
• Overpriced if bought at its original price.
As per my experience, the product is a good buy. One can easily store this one at the time of sale. I already have a body lotion and fragrance mist from the range I would like to try BBW’s other collection.
Will I repurchase the product?
Yes, if I get it in the same price range.
