Product Purchased by IMBB
To redeem my IMBB points, I decided to go on a Victoria’s Secret spree being the VS fan that I am like most girls 😀 I purchased 3 body mists. Secret Craving was the better of the lot and so I am going to review this first.
A seductive, warm fragrance. Surrender to Secret Craving, a rich desire of black currant embraced by vanilla absolute. Refreshing formula is infused with conditioning aloe vera and calming chamomile. Spray on for a touch of scent.
My Experience with Victoria’s Secret Secret Craving Fragrance Mist:
I am not a big fan of fruity/floral scents. It’s usually just 1 or 2 fruits and flowers that I like in perfumes. Vanilla is one of my favourite. I decided to give black currant a try because I thought it would smell like a milkshake of blackcurrant and vanilla ice-cream, but I was disappointed. It is extremely sweet for my liking. It’s sickly sweet! It reminds me of some drugstore deodorant that I had used when I was 13 or 14. The black currant is too strong and overwhelming. It’s like a concentration of artificial fruit extracts. It’s the “I-will-cause-tooth-cavities” kind of sweet. I cannot smell the warm base notes of vanilla at all. Being a person who likes warm notes, that was a bigger disappointment to top all of this.
For people who do like this scent, summer and daytime are better bets for wearing this as it is fruity. Have you ever noticed that when we don’t like a fragrance, it has a staying power of infinity! Yes, that’s the case here too. It stayed on and on for almost 8 hours! A body mist.
Maybe that’s because I can feel even the slightest traces of it drilling through my nose and bothering my olfactory senses *faints*. I know I have gone a little overboard in criticizing this by all means, but that’s because I totally detest this and to think it was the better of the lot 😐
Pros of Victoria’s Secret Secret Craving Fragrance Mist:
- Stays on forever and ever.
Cons of Victoria’s Secret Secret Craving Fragrance Mist:
- Extremely sweet for my liking.
