The cute packaging and the “nostalgic” name made me pick this up from the Essence counter. I picked two variants and here is the review on Essence Like Best Friends Forever EDT.

My Experience with Essence Like Best Friends Forever EDT Review:
As I said I loved the cute girly packaging of these. The outer paper carton is attractive and I feel that makes it an ideal gift for your bff. The glass bottle is see through and has the name of the product on it. There is an addition of a lavender bow around the neck which makes it all the more appealing.
The fragrance on initial spraying feels a bit warm and fruity at the same time; not a very common combo, so it is a welcome change. But after a while it settles to a floral smell which is a bit common. Honestly speaking I could not indentify base note to the fragrance, it kind of vanishes before that.
I spray around 4-5 spritz at one go and the smell stays for 2 hours maximum. After that it simply vanishes. I actually prefer the fragrance to vanish and not smell cheap after a couple of hours. It needs reapplication after 2 hours, so it is definitely not something for longer wear. I think this is apt for teenagers who are starting with fragrances and like to try a new fragrance once in a while.
Pros of Essence Best Friends Forever EDT:
• Cute packaging.
• Variety of fragrances.
• Unique fragrance.
• Does not smell cheap.
Cons of Essence Like Best Friends Forever EDT:
• Poor staying power.
IMBB Rating – 3.75/5
