My take on Victoria’s Secret Midnight Mimosa fragrance mist:
Prior to Midnight Mimosa, all VS mists that I’d bought were very warm fragrances and excessively fruity and/or floral. So I thought I needed to give other types of fragrances a try too. I browsed the VS website for some different scents and found a couple that fit the requirements. This was one of them and luckily enough, I found this mist at the store where I usually buy VS mists.
The packaging of this mist is just like other Victoria’s Secret mists. Only this one comes in a lime green bottle. The mist inside is transparent. All in all, it’s got a very sturdy and secure packaging.I’d read a lot of review’s on VS mists where people said they smell like alcohol for a few seconds when they first spritz them. I’d never felt that with any of the mists that I used until now. But Midnight Mimosa does smell like alcohol for a couple seconds, though the alcohol smell goes away as quickly as it comes.
About Midnight Mimosa, a lot of people say that it smells excessively like baby powder. I infact found it a bit different. It does smell a little powdery but nothing overwhelming about it. To me, it smells more musky and a lot like lilies. This fragrance is really a different one. It’s floral, but in a very balanced way.I usually spritz it 6-7 times and this way, the fragrance lasts on me for 6 hours easily. In a nutshell, this is the perfect fragrance for spring time. 😀
Pros of Victoria’s Secret Midnight Mimosa fragrance mist:
• Sturdy packaging
• Aptly priced for the quantity it comes in
• Great mist for spring time
• Great staying power
• Smells awesome.
Cons of Victoria’s Secret Midnight Mimosa fragrance mist:
• Some people may find it a powdery fragrance
• Not easily available in India
Will I repurchase Victoria’s Secret Midnight Mimosa Fragrance Mist? I’ll definitely repurchase this one.
Do I recommend Victoria’s Secret Midnight Mimosa Fragrance Mist?
