Today I am going to be reviewing for you a body mist I had purchased a VERY long time ago. It is by Victoria’s Secret. I purchased this on a vacation to the US. I was very keen on purchasing something with a coconut fragrance.So read on to find out my verdict on this product.
Product Description– Coconut Passion is a sensual blend of vanilla, coconut and lily-of-the-valley. It belongs to the Secret Garden collection.
Product Price– £ 16.99
My Experience with Victoria’s Secret Body Mist – Coconut Passion
The packaging of this product, like all other Victoria’s Secret Body Mists or rather products is highly attractive and luxurious. It comes in a clear bottle with gold and yellow accents. The label is golden in colour and it has a stunning yellow background with red/orangeish flowers as well. It has a golden syrup coloured nozzle, which just adds to the luxury factor of the packaging. The mist itself looks yellow/gold in the bottle, however it comes out absolutely transparent, as do most sprays. The packaging is really travel friendly since it is essentially plastic. However, it is relatively on the larger side and might be too big to carry if you are gonna put it in a small hand bag.
If you ladies have read my previous posts on fragrance, I have always maintained that the fragrance of any product, makes it or breaks it for me. I am very picky about such things and refrain from making use of any products that does not have a good fragrance to it. This product is one of those that I refrain from using. Why you ask? Well the fragrance claims to be a sensual blend of vanilla and coconut along with lily, however, I could barely smell any coconut in there. It has an extremely sweet smell to it, it is too sweet for comfort in my opinion. Post application, I felt really uncomfortable with the smell and it seemed to only infuriate me and strengthen my head ache. Don’t get me wrong, I love fragrances that are candy like, but they need to not be overpowering and take over every other thing around me and that is exactly what this did. It was a really strong candy like fragrance and did not go down well with me. This is why the bottle is still full, since I just cannot bear the smell of this fragrance. Moreover I tried giving it away to my sister and it lies perfectly untouched in her bedroom. The sole reason being the fragrance in this case too.
Having said that, in my opinion fragrance is a very personal taste and cannot be given a verdict on. Therefore this review is completely based on my personal taste and preference. Some ladies on here might actually like the sweet candy taste! Personally however, I am not pleased with this product at all, the smell was way too much candy for me to handle.

Cons of Victoria’s Secret Body Mist – Coconut Passion
