Other // Why I Love Victoria's Secret Fragrances

If you were to name your favourite perfume brands, what would your answer be? Marc Jacobs? Dior? Chanel? Mine would be Victoria's Secret. When people ask me what perfume I am wearing they always look surprised when I say it is VS. "Do they do perfume? I thought it was just underwear?" they say. But nope, I have about 8 bottles of Victoria's Secret fragrances hoarded away in my bedroom and I just can't get enough of the stuff.

The first time I ever encountered a Victoria's Secret fragrance was in an airport in Istanbul about 8 years ago and I was so excited to buy something from Victoria's Secret. I knew of the brand but had never seen anything from them in the flesh before so I was like a kid in a sweet shop. I remember buying a fragrance mist which was bright blue and sickly sweet. I used to douse myself in it before going to secondary school and in hindsight, the fact that it used to nearly make me choke should have told me that I was using too much at once. When I used the whole bottle up I kept it for nearly a year as I couldn't bare to throw it away. I was quite sad really, ha ha.

I haven't really changed much since then, not really. Last year when I went to America I bought 8 Victoria's Secret Fragrance Mists. I told myself I would give them to friends as presents and I think I have only given away 2. That was last February and I am still on the same bottle I started back then as I am now, 14 months later. Whilst I don't use it everyday as I do alternate between the fragrance mists and other perfumes, I can't believe I am still using the same product 14 months down the road. They last an incredibly long time which is amazing, especially if you are like me and spray far too much than necessary at once.

Not only do I love the Victoria's Secret Fragrance Mists, I also love the perfumes. The Victoria's Secret Bombshell Perfume is definitely up there in my top three scents. It is fruity and floral without being overpowering and too sickly sweet. I always find describing fragrances really difficult and I'll always say that it is better to actually smell something before going off on a whim and purchasing something on the off-chance but it is a really wonderful, light, fruity scent which is perfect for everyday.

It can be rather overwhelming walking into a Victoria's Secret store as there is just so much to look at but I really think the perfume and fragrance section is definitely not one to walk past. I can't say there is a perfume I have smelt of theirs that I don't like. Xo, Victoria Perfume is next on my list to purchase, as is the Bombshell in Bloom Perfume although I do think that scent may be discontinued now which means I will probably have to buy it from some dodgy seller on eBay and hope for the best.

With the Victoria's Secret Fragrance Mists and the Perfumes available in a whole variety of different scents aimed at women of all ages, I definitely think they aren't to be walked past. Next time you find yourself in a Victoria's Secret store, I highly recommend you try out the Bombshell Perfume because it is pretty damn glorious.

  1. I love the VS body mists, I am currently using Sheer Love and it is perfect for spring! Their scents are so unique! I haven't tried any perfume though, they as slightly too expensive for my budget but I would love to try one :)

  3. I LOVE the Victoria's Secret fragrances. My friend wears one that smells absolutely amazing and everytime she wears it I constantly compliment her. I have one of the mist's in Pure Seduction, which I bought before I went to Paris in Winter 2014. It will forever remind me of my trip and I love it!

  8. I've never tried their perfumes because I'v always assumed from their packaging that they are aimed at young girls. I know now that this may be a huge prejudice as so many people seem to love them!
