VICTORIA'S SECRET WARM & COZY BODY MIST
AVAILABLE FOR ORDERING
I just want to share ya..because this scent received so many good reviews..might as well i feature it in my blog. It's a limited edition so get it while stocks last.
Pink With A Splash - Warm & Cozy- RM115 (250ml)
Lotion - RM125 (400ml)
Take Both for RM195!
A refreshing, scented spritz to spray wherever you want. Lightly soothes with aloe and chamomile. This latest, limited-edition scent is a comforting blend of toasted vanilla, pink peony and raspberry.
Reviews taken from Makeupalley
" Yum, I LOVE this new smell! It's a light scent with both vanilla and fruity/floral notes. You could easily wear this in either summer or winter. Great fragrance!"
" love this body splash; as well as using this as a body fragrance I spritz it over a brush, before brushing my hair & I lightly spray over clothes and bed linen. I simply can't get enough.
As the name suggests this is indeed warm and comforting in the autumn/winter months, thanks to they key note; toasted vanilla. But as this body splash is light with fruity notes of raspberry and coconut, you can wear this in the spring/summer. For me WARM & COZY is a year round must-have!!"
"THIS FRAGRANCE IS AMAZING. usually all of the VS scents get old after a while but this never does! It is exactly what it says: warm and cozy, it combines just the right amount of vanilla with frutier notes. PINK warm & cozy is something i will wear for a very very long time :)"
"I adore this, along with all VS scents, not including Rapture. This is very accurately described as a "comforting blend of toasted vanilla, pink peony and raspberry". I definately agree with this. It IS very warm and cozy, not to mention sexy. I got this in the All Over Body Mist, as well as the Supersoft Body Lotion and I like to layer them. Would definately repurchase!"
"I love it. It's vanilla, but it also has the floral undertones to really make it smell fun, not boring."
"I just bought this (body wash, lotion, and body spray) at Victoria's Secret today, and I have to say, I am liking it a lot! It definitely smells warm and cozy, and I got compliments on it twice today. "
"I just sampled this today because of a review about it on youtube and fell in love instantly! True to its name, it's a warm and comforting scent. The toasted vanilla reminds me of marshmallows :) After the initial vanilla note, a fruity, raspberry aroma kicks in. I've gotten compliments on it already! This scent just smacks of winter. I love it! I took one lippie off, though, because I wish it lasted longer!"
"love this and i usually cannot stand vanilla, it gives me a headache but because they mix it with fresh smelling scents, its a vanilla i can stand and love. "
"Lovely body spray...smells clean to me...also smells like raspberry and vanilla...Victoria's Secret makes wonderful perfumes..."
"Love this! I have the body wash, body spray and lotion. The lotion is ultra moisturizing and makes me so soft. And this is a very inviting fragrance. Try it!"
"great vanilla fresh cozy warm scent all together...love this!"
"This is described as a toasted vanilla, pink peony & raspberry fragrance. I get strong warm vanilla and a slight floral/fruity in the background. I can't specifically pick out the peony or raspberry. That said I love this scent!!
Definitely a warm & cozy vanilla scent : )"
"Warm & Cozy lotion is a real treat! The fragrance is delicious - a warm, vanilla-based scents with suggestions of berry - and much more wintery than the Pink original scent. The formula is very soft and smooth - it's thin, which is good for fast absorption, although it may not be sufficient as a winter moisturizer if your skin gets very dry. If you just need an everyday-type moisturizer for straight out of the shower, though, this is great - one squirt for each arm and leg, and I'm good to go. Given the huge size of the bottle, it's safe to say that it'll last me for a while, too."

BERRYGEN (COLLAGEN & BERRY MIX)
NaturCare BerryGen was released around last Ramadhan. Me, being very sceptical with just about everything, will wait as usual until someone becomes a lab rat and test new products. Once it gets rave reviews or good testimonial, then only my hands will start to itch.
My mum has been persuading me to consume it since i do not take vegetables at all and i only take fruits when it's available. Nak beli sendiri tu malas ya amat. I am lacking in a lot of vitamins and i only rely on Amway Nutrilite supplements. So i tumpang-ed her box of BerryGen.
First and foremost and the most important thing is - Hey, i can swallow this! Because you know what? I cannot drink Herbalife. I cannot drink Amway's Positrim, I cannot eat Biodex, I cannot drink Teh Orang Kampung & Teh Mustika Ratu --- i will puke, no joke.
This one me boleh telan..tidaklah asyik mengembang je tekak. Cara nak minum, bancuh dengan air sejuk and then consume it fast. Rasa berrynya memang ketara -- slurp slurp slurp! Me and my mom minum pada waktu malam.
For me, being young and without any wrinkles has seen a reduction in my acne skin. Those who know me personally knows how sensitive my skin is. One wrong makeup application/skincare application..my face will be covered in spots.
Since consuming BerryGen, my face is noticebly clearer and my scars are fading. So on my engagement day, my face is completely clear. No spots, no bumps. The remaining scars were covered cleverly by Che' Lie. I'm happy! That said, i still maintain a good regimen of external skincare.
For my mum, it took her two and a half boxes to see the results. She is 50 this year and her skin is pretty lifeless, sun-damaged and aging. You can also see that she has some pigmentation and a lot of mole-like spots on her cheeks.
She also has very dark eye circles. Eyeshadows don't look good on her as the darkness overshadows everything.
This picture was taken when she finished consuming the first box.I did not notice any significant changes.
When she finished her second box i was really really amazed. She is fairer ok! She's not using any whitening products currently but her face is radiant and fairer. And those fine lines has been plumped up by the collagen.
Her pigmentation pun ada improvement- they are fading! Dulu, the pigmentation is bigger..i mean wider. Now dah mengecil dah kawasannya tu. Memang ada beza. Her face lebih tegang, radiant and looks younger than the last few months.
Those mole-like spots are also almost gone. Tinggal the real mole saja. The dark eye circles have improved so she can sashay around in eyeshadows if she wants to.
And she looks more gorgeous under the harsh lights. Her skin reflects the light. Itu yg nampak cantik.
So, since that i am more and more convinced of the effects of BerryGen that i dare to feature it in my blog. As i said on the heading. I do not sell junks. And believe me, you will not get to buy junks here.
Retail Price: RM199 (per box of 20 satchets)
To Semenanjung: RM6 for the first box. RM2 for every additional box.
To Sabah/Sarawak: RM8 for the first box. RM3 for every additional box.

LOOKING FOR DISCONTINUED/LIMITED EDITION VS SCENTS?
Missed the boat? Want to complete your ever growing scent collection? Late in trying out VS fragrances? Good news is, you can order the limited edition and discontinued scents from me. All are in stock with my supplier. These were the fragrances from 2007 and before.
As for myself, i've tried 3 out of those in the list which is Forbidden Fantasy, Midnight Mimosa and Honeysuckle Belle.
Forbidden Fantasy smells like a very tropical scent. I think it has mangoes (but it doesn't just smell like mangoes. It has an interesting mix of flowers). I think it is a very bold and beautiful scent and it is a shame for VS to discontinue it. I would recommend it to just about anyone. The top note goes on pretty strong but it will die down to a very fragrant scent. Forbidden Fantasy is different from their permanent scents. I have the EDT and now dah tinggal separuh!
Midnight Mimosa is a baby powder + plant scent. It is for someone who does not like fruity and floral scents. Midnight Mimosa is clean, simple and neutral. The reviews that i found are not too encouraging but honestly, it is really not offensive or tak busuk. It just doesn't fall into the fruity or floral category. If you like scents like green tea, ginger, juniper..then you will love this.
Honeysuckle Belle is a light and easy scent to wear. It smells of flowers and orange fruit. I can imagine wearing this to a picnic or to the beach. I have the EDT at home and wear it from time to time.
I also did manage to take a whiff of the Pretty in Pink splash. It smells like melons and flowers and a lighter version of Romantic Wish
Reading the reviews below, i am really keen to try Forever Romance and Passionate Kisses.
Scents that can be ordered: (Credit Makeupalley for the reviews)
Courier Charges Will Apply As Usual
Enchanted Apple - RM55
"WOW! I am so in love with this scent! I got the body lotion and body splash in a swap. And I am so loving this! I can't stop smelling myself! lol but true! This smells like a true apple, but not overpowdering. Smells sweet and tart, and none of those plastickly smell associated with some fruity scent. I am so glad this came is a huge bottle cos I'm sure I'll use this up pretty soon! :)"
"Beautiful scent. This and Parfums De Coeur's Apple Fantasy tie for the most delicious apple scented fragrance. This does have a bit of spicey cinnamony element to it, but not overwhelmingly so. Gorgeous!"
"This is the best scent from Victoria's Secret, I'm so bummed it's being discontinued.. I love the fruitiness of it.."
"Oh this is a sexy apple smell. I love Enchanted Apple. I never understood why they discontinued this one. To me, it's rich and lovely. I like it better than Bath and Body Works Country Apple. I do like that one too, but I think I like the quality, bottle style and smell of Victoria Secret, just a little bit better. I always stock up on this Scent during their yearly sales. This scent is so refreshing and clean. LOVE IT!"
"I love it! I absolutely adore this scent from Victoria's Secret. Here in the Philippines you can still find them in some department stores and in select Watsons outlets but they are also slowly becoming scarce. I order mine from a seller friend and I make sure I never run out. I love apple scents and to me, Enchanted Apple is the best one out there. It's a smooth, non cloying smell yet its lasting power is great considering the scent is very mild. Like someone said here, it's an apple scent with just a hint of spice that stops it from smelling like apple juice. lol I love it! Those who love fruity, foody scents, this one's perfect for you!"
Secret Crush - RM55
"This is one of my favorite scents. It's light, not too fruity, but a perfectly soft floral. I love this and highly recommend it if you can find it - it's discontinued!"
"This is going to sound a little odd, but this definitely has an underlying note that comes out a bit later. I have the body splash, and when I first spray it, it's bit too sweet & candy-ish for me. But after a little while, it really smells like a fresh, just out-of-the-shower scent - really clean & sweet! Told you this would sound weird, but it's true! I'm glad I tried it on. I'm not a fan of the smell in the bottle or when it's first sprayed, but absolutely loooove the scent after it's been on for a while."
"I just got this splash today, it smells sweet, girly and kinda fruity, it's for the girl who has that secret crush and knows just how to get him with her flirty ways! ;-)"
"Secret Crush EDT is a very light and fresh citrus-fruity floral that goes green in the drydown,
reminds me of a flower shop or hothouse. The green drydown is very similar to Prescriptives Calyx at a fraction of the price. Ideal for spring-summer."
" love the way Forbidden Fantasy smells. I am shocked that they discontinued this great scent. It is tropical and fresh with slightly musky undertones. I smell mango and melons. I do wish that it lasted longer though, but reapplying is fine, and I like how it is a lightweight, making it so versatile. I will continue to purchase this in the spray and lotion during the semi-annual sales."
"This is another fruity/floral from VS. This one is sweet fruity, not too tart. It smells slightly more tropical than the others. It reminds me of Smartee candies. I love it!"
"I adore this! Perky, fruity and happy smelling. Reminds me of summertime! I love the aqua color of the packaging. I heard that this is being discontinued. Say it's not so!! Why must Victoria's Secret discontinue this????????"
"Fruity, Pretty, Fresh, Fun and Beachy! I WILL repurchase when I run out of Forbidden Fantasy."
"Pretty floral sweet perfume...jasmine,mango,passion flower...a little powdery...soft and pretty!"
"WOW! What an amazing, summery scent! It's very fresh & very fruity. After smelling something so familiar in it, but unable to put my finger on it, I asked what it was that made up this gorgeous scent.... Mango, Passion Flower & Jasmine. Yummmmmm!
The dry down on this has a tropical -candy-ish- scent, that also is wonderful."
"The scent reminds of scoops of vanilla ice cream in orange soda, it sweet smelling and fun! I like this...I find alot of the VS Garden stuff to sweet for summertime wear...they turn "overly ripe" with heat but this one has been fine for hot weather, even layered with the shower gel and lotion. "
"When I first wore this, I thought I smelled so sexy. It's such a pretty flirty scent. It's definately a honeysuckle scent that's slightly fruity. Nothing extravagent like Love Spell. Just a beautiful scent. It's LE but I will definately repurchase if it's still around."
"I bought this the first time I smelled it at the store. Fruity and a bit citrusy, this scent doesn't overpower nor call too much attention unlike other vs body splashes. Just a sweet and clean smell. Love it!"
"Awww! I miss this product! I'm so sad that VS decided to discontinue it. Thanks to MUA, I'm glad I can find one of my favorite scents!
This scent is so sweet smelling. Whenever I wear this product, I definitely feel sooo sexy walking around.
The plus? It smells EXACTLY like Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb! So, instead of paying twice as much for a fourth of the bottle, you're getting a great deal here as well.
Oh Victoria Secret! Please bring this scent back!"
Forever Romance - RM55
"Wow, I'm finding that the MUA reviews on the VS scents aren't always what I agree with. Yes, I do agree that this smells like jello with whipped cream, but I really like it. It's also kind of similar to Love Spell, aren't they all though? This one has a perfect combination of red berries and sugar blossoms. It's really, really yummy. This one is by far one of my favorite VS scents. I cannot believe the low reviews!"
"This is very fruity and summery and smells similar to Love Spell. I have the body butter and at first I was a little weirded out at the hard texture as I am used to The Body Shop's butters. A cheap pick me up during the semi-annual sale."
"This is one of three scents I can wear on my body that smells better on me then it does in the bottle. Similar to Love Spell, but not as strong. I am on my second bottle of body spray and will continue to buy! Just a small spritz behind my knees, neck, and arms is all it takes and the scent lasts all day! The shower gel is amazing and smells just as good! Sorry for those of you who do not like it and Woohoo for those who do! : )"
"I think that forever romance smells like candy and a strawberry shortcake doll (for some bizarre reason). I got the small EDT and like it alot.....and it lasts a long time too!"
Insatiable Chocolate Berry - RM70
"If you like food scents, you will love this lotion. It smells exactly like chocolate covered strawberries to me. Love it!"
"This smells heavenly, like strawberries and cream with a little bit of chocolate and I do not regret it one bit. The lotion is highly moisturizing, but the scent doesn't last as long as other lotions like "Love Spell," which lasts the whole day on me. Overall though, it is wonderful and if I could, I would have stocked up since this is limited edition, but unfortunately, the store I went to only had this one last bottle. I'll probably spend some time combing the internet for this product."
"Mmm what a heavenly scent! It's a warm blend of chocolate, raspberry and strawberry, and it could not be more perfect. I picked this up at the Victoria's Secret semi-annual for $2.99- for that price I couldn't say no! The bottle also reminded me of the Temptations line from BBW, and I was hoping I would get the same results- and I did! Rich, moisturizing, leaves a light scent on your skin that lasts for a good while. I wear it on special occasions- I think it would be too much for every day! "
Insatiable Hazelnut Truffle - RM70
"Wow, this smells exactly like hazelnut coffee, I am not sure about the truffle part though (I guess I was expecting a little chocolate mixed in or something). The first spray is extremely strong but settles down within a minute or so; however, the fragrance hardly lasts at all, yet none of the Insatiable fragrances that I have tried have lasted more than a half hour anyways (except Sugar and Spice Seduction). I would probably not buy this fragrance again for myself, but for anyone who loves coffee scents this would be a nice gift. "
"This review is for the lotion:
This scent stopped me in my tracks while in VS today. I was immediately captivated by the name 'Hazelnut Truffle'. I had to have it LOL I have a love of Coffee/Chocolate scented things and this is probably my favorite next to BBW Marshmallow (which smelled like Chocolate Cake IMO). It is a nice cozy, not overbearing Hazelnut coffee scent that is very wearable without being over the top foody.
There is another scent in there that does not come out until the dry down that makes this a wearable scent. I can't place it. But it is kind of sexy. I give it 4 lippies though. It would get 5 but the scent once on does not last too long at all. Glycerin is #2 on the ingredient list to water. I love that and look for that in my products:) It sinks in immediately. Definately will repurchase. "
Vanilla Orange Blossom-RM70
"This is brand new and so far, I am loving it! I think this is limited edition so it won't be around forever! Anyway, this is great because it really is creamy, rich and sexy smelling. I had a coupon for a free VS product, so I picked this one. I just love to lather this on my skin after a shower. The scent doesn't last all day, but It lasts long enough to get compliments. I think I will stock up at the next sale on this scent. It's yummy to my nose!"
"I picked up this and Coconut Passion the other day at VS because I had two Free Mist coupons. So I purchased the matching lotion for each. I collect VS scents so I decided to go with these LE ones. This one is yummy. It smells like orange creamsicles, with the scent more on the creamy side that the citrusy side. It's nice, but it's hard for me to tell the difference between this and Coconut Passion."
"This is a creamy sensual scent I love it. It has a nice citrusy vanilla scent. It was on sale so I got it for the 6 for $30. Got the lotion to match as well. Very delicious. Took of a lippy as it dosen't last since it's a mist. However some VS mists last a while."
Insatiable Key Lime Lust-RM70
"I first smelled this on a friend of mine who work's as a flight attendant and when i smelled it and saw the bottle, I just knew that I had to have it.
One of my favorites from Victoria's Secret. I'm such a sucker for sweet, cupcakey, vanilla laced scents and Key Lime Lust is a sweet but fresh scent that dries down to a coconutty finish. It's kind of strong at first spritz but becomes soft and subtle as the day progresses. Staying power is good, as with all vanilla-ey scents. "
"This one has to be my favorite of all the insatiable scents. This has a very pungent scent with notes of lime, vanilla and whipped cream. Smells just like the real thing!"
"I don't eat Key Lime pie and I never thought I would ever use anything that smelled like it. On a whim I decided to sniff this in the store and oh how heavenly it is. It is my new favorite scent. It smells very vanilla, lime and lemon all at once. It truly makes me want to eat it. It's like you can smell the crust and everything. I normally use Philosophy's body products, but this is just as good as theirs and is cheaper. The only reason I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5 is because the scent doesn't last very long, but that's to be expected since it's a body spray instead of a perfume. The body wash and the lotion are fabulous too!"
"I absolutely LOVE this scent. It has the longest staying power on me out of all the splashes, and it just smells so devine! It's a lovely sugary coconut, with a hint of something that my nose JUST can't pick up..it's slightly tropical..perhaps lime? Anyways, I highly recommend this fragrance for those mid-summer evenings when you're having a BBQ with family & friends.
"Yummy! This stuff smells so good and lasted all day on me. It's a great summer scent but since I'm from a place that's hot most of the year, this'll be one of my "used more often" scents.
It's not just a straight coconut scent. It's coconut with vanilla and sugar so that's where that creamy side comes into play. Like coconut ice cream. Warm, tropical with a sweet playful side. The only thing that sucks about this product is that it's limited edition. Boo."
"A very soft and tropical coconut scent. I really like this! Its warm and unique. Not your ordinary coconut scent. I will stock up because this is a limited edition."
"Cherries with a hint of fruit punch. Very yummy and quite distinctive. It's one of those scents you either love or hate, methinks, as there is no getting away from that cherry. Too bad they d/c'd it, as both Hubby and I dug it. "
"This is one of the better VS scents. It smells just like black cherries. I like it."
"This is a great scent! I first smelled the splash on my friend and immediately fell in love with it! I had to get the whole line, shower gel, lotion and body splash. I was wondering what it smelled like but couldnt figure it out until my friends said it smelled like cherry and marzipan and I think thats exactly what it smells like. It has a great staying power, whenever I or my friend wear it, I can smell it all day long and after I get out the shower my whole bathroom smells like it for hours! Unfortunatly they discontinued this scent, like they did with so many other great scents. But you can still get it for the retail price on Ebay. I took one lippie off because sometimes it can be a little bit overpowering and sickening sweet for the people that is not to much into sweet candy scents. "
"love it love it love it! i agree the lotion is a bit more pleasant because the spray is initially overwhelming, but it lasts for hours. most sprays can't do that. It is like a cherry orchid with strawberries and a dash of floral heaven. you only need one or two splashes. i love this better than love spell, which to me so overwhelming. this is probably the smell i get the most compliments on from strangers. too bad this is a seasonal scent. or possibly discontinued, not sure. i made sure i got mine to last for a while."
"Very fun and sexy. I wish they would bring this one back, because it smells great and you gotta love those cherries! Very youthful, yet elegant!"
"Oh, I really like to wear Passionate Kisses. Especially the splash, because it goes on so well and remains fresh. A very nice pick-me-up, especially in the summer months. Yes, it does smell like cherries/kool-aid/medicine, whatever else people say this smells like, but to me, it smells fun and sexy. I always buy both the lotion and the splash in this scent during VS annual clearance sales. "
"This perfume is fantastic just like sweet black cherries and sugar i adore it and love wearing it,such an unusual smell people are always asking what i am wearing!!
When you first put it on it is very strong and sweet almost like the maraschino cherries you pop in drinks(one of my fave smells)it eventually dies down into a lovely feminine sweet aroma that lingers with you throughout the day, i do find it long lasting and very much a summer scent but with me i wear perfume to bed so lol i wear whatever i am in the mood for regardless of what itme of year it is.
This perfume to me just oozes sexiness and lets everyone know there is a sensual female about,simply gorgeous :)"
"This used to be my signature scent. Yes, it is sweet, but it has a delicious scent.. something like black cherry with a hint of spice. I can't believe they discontinued this one. Sexy and dark?.. yes. Light and airy?.. no. "
"I so wish this was not discontinued. Its a yummy cherry scent balanced out with a tiny bit of vanilla and something powdery. Its not going to be something everyone loves because its very sweet and what some people think is fun and fruity others find cloying and gross. My husband liked it and said it "smelled like berries". Like all the VS Body Splashes its not very lasting and its best to get the lotion and shower gel and layer this scent. I would definatly repurchase (and since thats not possible I will swap for it)"
"I have the body spray. I've gotten compliments on it before! It smells kinda like cherry Kool-Aid, but sexy in a way :P"
"Tart cherries! This is great. Lovely mixed with vanilla, chocolate, or coconut fragrances!"
"I love it. It smells like Chocolate Covered Cherries. I get compliments everytime I wear it!"
"An absolutely yummy, fresh fragrance! I buy it in the body splash, body cream, lotion and hand soap and I hope they never, ever stop making these products. A hint of the light cherry fragrance stays on your skin all day and your boyfriend will love the scent when he's close to you. Chemically smelling perfumes are too harsh for me and give me a headache, but this fresh fragrance is not overpowering in the least so I use it daily in place of perfume. Plus, it's affordable!"
"I really like this one! It is very sweet and has a black cherry scent. It lasted quite a while on me(at least for a body spray). The color of the product is an intense purple and very beautiful. It looks great in my bathroom. I have the whole set. I also like to layer this with a foody vanilla cream so I smell like black cherry vanilla."
Pretty in Pink-RM55
"This is a sweet and very pretty, feminine fragrance--just as the name implies. I am usually not into scents that are not as sweet as this, but do not let that scare you away. It is still refreshing and easy to wear. Lasting power is so-so, like most VS splashes. I smell soft florals and watermelon. That makes it slightly like Romantic Wish (one of my favorite Secret Garden scents), but this is not quite as deep. Pretty in Pink makes me feel girlier, which is nice from time to time. It is strange they haven't kept this scent around!"
"Oh my god! i never smelled anything as wonderful as this. Victoria's secret pretty in pink smells so delightful. It has a hint of sweet-smelling floral base and is soft, flirtatious and magical. It is so light it allows you to spray and spray without turning you deadly aromatic. I swear, you will love this! This kind of scent will suit those whose personality is sweet, fun, and stylish. It is good for everyday use. This is really a fresh, delicate, and sexy scent everybody will surely love. "
"I bought this on a whim YEARS ago right before they were about to discontinue it because it was on sale. And I LOVED it, so sad its not as available, the lotion was great, scent lasted a long time and it DOES take me back when i smell it! If I am lucky enough to come across it at VS I will definitely pick some up!"
More Recent Ones
Sweet Sugar - RM55
"Sweet vanilla body spray...like the cupcakes on the bottle..."
"this product is really good. it smells sweet as sugar. I keep smelling it throughout the day, trying to keep myself from eating it. I get alot of compliments on it. not too strong which is good. just a really sweet decadent smell iwould definately buy again."
"YES DEFINITELY YES!! This scent is amazing! What I like is that it's not sickly sweet just a perfect spoonful of sugar. It's not overdone in any way, not cloying, and not at all teeny bopper. It's sweet but not syrupy and it lasts all day on me. My DH loves it too and that speaks volumes."
"Love the new Sugar line. This one smells fantastic. Just like real sweet sugar. Would definately repurchase!"
Berry Sugar - RM55
"To start, I have this scent in splash form and in lotion form. I haven't used the lotions yet but the splashes (or since I am using one at a time, the splash :OP), is absolutely wonderful! It's everything I adore ... it's sweet enough for those who love sweet scents (w/o being cloying), and it's fresh enough for those who can appreciate the uniqueness of Berry Sugar. Most importantly, it's strong and very long lasting (without being overpowering).
Right when I sniffed this, a few notes struck me as similar to Parfum de Coeur's Vanilla Sugar (only much much MUCH better!). Beyond that, I am getting a mix of berries, tangerines, and sugar.
This scent as a whole is unlike anything I've smelled from VS beforehand (I disagree with anyone who might compare this to Ripe Berry), and despite a few similar notes, does not smell anything like the Vanilla Sugar scent I previously mentioned (which is a good thing, since I dislike Vanilla Sugar and LOVE this one).
In summary, though I do not necessarily pick up cranberries in this (i.e. when I think of cranberries, I expect something a little more tart ... like BBW's Frosted Cranberry ... and this one is more sweet than tart), I definitely notice the (successful) marriage of berries and the tangerine sugar. Deeelicious!
A delightful scent :O)."
"Sweet, pink...smells like raspberry and sugar..."

I have some more items in hand. Please refer to the titles to every picture. I've also taken some reviews from makeupalley so that you will gain a better understanding of each scent. Wow! I love Cherry Blossom. It does not smell bitter like L'Occitane ones. I'm getting one for myself soon. It's so soft and fresh and clean. Great for those who does not like fruity and foody scents.
I also have on Ripe Berry Mist (sold -RM55)in hand. The juicest, freshest, ripest berry ever. I wear this so often, my bottle dah tinggal separuh je.
Courier charges will apply, as usual.
Love Spell EDT (RM55)-sold
Can be re-ordered
"Happy,Sweet floral & fruit...has cherry blossom,peach,jasmine...smells like cherry blossom,peach to me...very pretty!"
"Love spell is a great scent. I get compliments on it every day and never get tired of it. The body mist doesn't last very long, only around an hour, but I still love it and will purchase it again. I use the lotion with it to make the scent last longer. Right now this is my favorite scent, but I haven't smelled many of the Victoria's Secret ones. I bet that they are just as good as this. I would recommend this to teenagers, as I am one."
"I LOVE this scent! VERY pretty and as long as you don't put on too much I don't think that it is too overbearing. The great thing about it is I can put it on in the morning and I can still smell it after a long work day! Will continue to repurchase!"
"I like this as a "perk me up" fragrance. It smells kind of like fruit punch! It's a good day fragrance for me, as I detest anything that is too heavy, too floral, or musky smelling..."
"Call me crazy...I often hate anything that is overdone, but I do adore Love Spell. I love the grapey note it has. I think it's super for summer, and is an instant pick me up (for me anyway). I like the purple coloring. It's just a nice, fruity, fun scent. Great for fun occasions, and I've even worn it to something a bit formal."
Endless Love EDT (RM55) -sold
Can be re-ordered
"Smells sooo clean! A nice blue color in the bottle, it imparts a clean subtle smell that never seems to overwhelm even if I get a little too overzealous in spraying. Clean, like the top of a baby's head. and yes, it does smell like shampoo, but in a good way. Love it."
"If I got a dollar from everyone who told me I smelled sooo good, I'd be rich lol! This fragrance is so pretty! I can't describe it. A pretty fresh girly smell.....and it does kinda smell like Herbal Essences lol. Like a clean just-out-of-the-shower scent with a little floral in it. You all should try this one if you haven't!!"
"I really love this scent. Unlike quite a few of the other VS scents, this isn't SO fruity, and I think it makes it more of a mature scent. It's floral with slight hints of fruitiness. It's very fresh and feminine."
"I get lots of compliments when I wear this. My husband loves it on me. I like to put the scented lotion on before bed, my skin feels so soft and smells so good. This is in my opinion one of the more sophisticated scents from the Garden line of fragrances. Not so sweet and fruity, more smooth and mellow"
"This is my favorite VS fragrance besides Amber Romance. This smells so fresh and great for the summer months! It is a sweet fragrance but it isn't too sweet. I don't know exactly when notes are in it but it almost has a sort of melon note to it. It is just one of those fragrances that you have to smell in person but it is wonderful!"
Berry Kiss EDT and Body Mist (RM55 each) - sold
Can be re-ordered
"This is one of the best VS Garden scents to debut in a long, long time. It is a combination of raspberry, praline and rose...I don't really smell the praline in there but it does give a slight cupcake kick to the fruity raspberry notes. This scent is truly wonderful, which means they'll probably discontinue it! I will be sure to stock up on this one. It somehow reminds me of the scent of my Charmkin toys when I was a child..."
"Spell right now!! It smells like the berry one they had before but more sweet/flowery. It's really nice. "
Very Sexy Hot EDP 75ml (RM230)
"I just picked this up on a whim when i was out at the mall and looking for a new fun scent for summer. I think it smells like very sexy 2...are they supposed to be the same smell?? anyway, i was trying to decide betweet this and very sexy(red). The red bottle smelled really good, it was just a little too strong, good for going out but i was looking more of a HG everyday signiture scent. I fell in love with this fragrance!The scent is absolutely intoxicating...i cant even describe it!! don't base the smell on the first spritz out of the bottle. It is a bit strong. It smells euphoric a few minutes after it settles into your skin!!! I recommend this to any woman who wants to smell sexy and yummy, without seeming like your trying too hard. I am definitely going to repurchase until they discontinue it!! my new HG!!"
"I love this. It remnds me of Gucci RUSH. Perhaps because of the patchouli in it. Makes me feel super sexy and femme fatalish It's sensual, clean and sexy. Cute bottle too. Lasts decent. "
"I tried this out in Victoria's Secret, thinking that it was Very Sexy 2, but re-named and repackaged. I've been told by the SA that this is different from Very Sexy 2 ,although it is in the similar light pink bottle. It smells pretty much the same to me, but perhaps there is a small difference between both scents. Very minimal is needed for one application, or it can be too strong. It's a very unique fragrance, which I appreciate. Very Sexy 1 is still my favorite out of the two, but I really do enjoy this fragrance!
Top Notes: marigold, freesia, berry
Middle Notes: peony, stargazer lily, plum
Low notes: patchouli, musk, suede, sandalwood, vanilla"
Twisted Peppermint 3in1 6oz bottle (RM40)
"I was very suprised that I really liked this 3 in 1 since I am not usually a peppermint fan. As someone said below, I think there is some vanilla in it that makes it smell less harsh than normal peppermint. Great consistency and moisturizing as well. Love the peppermint line."
"I adore this! The smell is just phenomenal. It's very peppy peppermint, but I think there's a tad bit of vanilla in there making it sweeter. It's a very yummy, rich smell. And as a body wash it's fantastic. It's very rich and creamy and lathers up a ton. I wouldn't use it as a shampoo, but I would never use anything as a shampoo labeled "3-in-1." "
"Yum! I absolutley love this 3 in 1...Twisted Peppermint is from the Tempations Line at Bath and Body Works...This retails for about $9, IIRC, and is described as a body wash, a bubble bath, and even a shampoo-all in one cute bottle...but I think this formula is definitley better as a bubble bath or wash than a shampoo, though! ...this did leave a soft, subtle scent of sweet peppermint in my hair, but after drying it out a bit...But then again I have quite long hair...As a bubble bath, it works wonders with its soothing, calming yet 'wake-up-now' aroma!!! This is hands down the most perfect energizing soap out there for a warm spring morning...lol..I read once that peppermint is recommended for people who want to increase their concentration and memory for work, school and the such...I have to admit that I put it to the 'test' recently before a midterm and I am happy to say I scored very well..lol....
All unsubstantiated 'scientific' remarks aside, Twisted Peppermint is a lovely, sweet peppermint...it really smells like a candy cane!!! Not too sugary or bitter...with it's rich bubbles and clean-rinsing formula, Twisted Peppermint is everything I could ask for in bottle!!! It's such a great concept-- especially for travelling!! =)"
"This is one of my staples! I love this stuff. It's so relaxing to just sit in the tub and smell the peppermint...I think anyway. It's a sweet smell that lingers just a bit. My kids love it as a bubble bath. They love the candy cane smell...they feel like they are swimming with candy canes! My skin feels soft and smooth afterwards. It's a great pick-me-up too. I find if I've had a bad day and I shower with this, I'm in a better mood afterwards. "
"I LOVE THIS SCENT!!! I had heard raves about it and decided to pick up a trial size on my most recent trip to B&BW. Am I glad I did. This stuff smells really minty at first sniff, but take it in the shower and you get this delicious, creamy mint, almost like a buttermint. And it doesn't feel tingly either, which is a good thing, as I don't like feeling "minty fresh" all over when I use a body wash or shampoo. I am definitely going to buy the full size of this! I wonder what the lotion is like... "
"This is probably one of the best products I have discovered by Bath and Body. The scent isn't purely peppermint but a mixture of other notes with a soft vanilla. It has a high lather and takes off all the excess oil and dirt on your skin without over drying. I also found that it is one of the few products that didnt irritate my already sensitive skin.
The other Temptation products didnt come close to this one, and unfortunately this scent sold out at EVERY Bath and Body in my area, including their online store. I can only hope they re-issue it this Holiday season so I can do a yearly stock up. "
"Seriously this has far surpassed any favorite scent I have EVER had. At first I didn't even look at it in stores because it just didn't seem like a 'Me' scent. I was sooooo very wrong and should have to hide my head for ever shunning it LOL I now had to pay alot more for it on Ebay:(
Anyways I used my daughter's mini 3 in 1 the other day and OMG I was sooo hooked.
I washed my hair with it and the scent was sooo invigorating and refreshing.
Not a harsh mint like I would have thought of a mint scent to be, but a creamy candy vanilla mint. I cannot say enough about this scent. Simply the best.
Let's put it this way my all time favorites used to be the Bath and Body Works Whipped Marshmallow Cream of which I ordered 5. Pecan Passion, which I was stocked with 5 also. And Calgon Marshmallow which I bought 8 of. Those were my HG's that is why I bought that many of each.... Drumroll.... LOL
Twisted Peppermint I now own 25 bottles of! In the past week alone I have purchased and swapped my life away for them LOL! And am still actively searching for more!
This is my newest obssession. Love Love Love it!"
"I LOVE this stuff. Like, I'd marry it if I could. ;) It is the perfect vanilla peppermint, creamy and subtle, leaving you smelling yummy for hours later. I'm so glad I stocked up. If you can get your hands on it, TRY IT! You'll love it!"
Fresh Vanilla Body Mist (RM65) - SOLD
Can be re-ordered
"Sweet and slightly musky on my skin, it's a bit warmer than VS Vanilla Lace. It's a straight on vanilla scent though as the day goes on and at times, is a bit overwhelming in the tropical heat but I like it nonetheless. I'm a vanilla, cupcakey, foody scents fiend. Staying power is amazing. My work takes me everywhere under the unforgiving sun (and i mean that literally) and even through all the sweat, smoke and smog, I still smell like sweet fresh vanilla."
"I just got a bottle of this splash in the mail yesterday. And oh my gosh.....as soon as I sniffed this I just felt warm and cozy! This is such a nice vanilla. And I was SO surprised how long it lasts for a body splash! Put it on at 7 am and I can still smell it at 4 pm! Great stuff "
"Aww... I didn't know they were discontinuing this... well, I'm disappointed, but nothing I can do about it. I love this. It has a nice vanilla scent that's not too overpowering. My picky lover likes it too. He's alright with everything else, but he actually says that he likes this one. I guess I'll have to find a new one for him to like..."
"Well what do you expect...the true smell of vanilla is not a sugar cookie. I am sick to death of warm vanilla sugar and glad this was at the big sale. It was 50% off, so about $5. To me this is rich, spicy vanilla. Reminds me of the henri bendel vanilla bean candle. It's warm and so sexy!"
"Inviting and warm... comforting and feminine... Love it! A perfect every day any time scent! No wonder vanilla is in every single beauty line... this particular one epitomizes what vanilla fragrance should be! Soft... come hither... flirty!"
"I am finally exploring vanillas this fall and after trying many of the expensive brands including L'Artisan's Vanilia ,CSP,La Maison de La Vanille and Susanne Lang's vanillas, this is the best vanilla fragrance to me thus far,light ,softly sweet and warm,with a bit of a burnt sugar note. "
"This is a wonderful scent and the body spray is very nicely done. This scent is a long lasting one especially if layered. As others have said, I much prefer this to WVS. I like WVS, but something about the basmati rice note in it sometimes throws me. This is a very sweet, sultry and yet comforting fragrance. Gets consistent compliments. It doesn't smell like a 'bath product' at all."
Cherry Blossom Body Mist and Shower Gel (RM65 each)
Shower Gel is no longer available in stock ( can still order)
"This is one of the very few BBW scents that I really do like and it doesn't turn on me...well it turns but into GOOD! I keep smelling and smelling my arm!
Someone's review said "this doesn't smell like Cherries at all"...well it's not cherry, it's cherry blossom which is a flower....so it IS floral not cherry!"
"To me this is one of the cleanest, freshest scents around. I guess technically it is a floral, but in a very discreet way :) On me Cherry Blossom is a mixture of a pretty feminine soapy scent with a hint of cherry lifesavers. This is a pretty fragrance at any time but really stands out during hot weather when I find myself reaching for instead of my usual sweet/incense based fragrances. This is the perfect work fragrance, I can't imagine it offending too many people (if not over applied) as it isn't at all "perfumey" and more of a "clean skin" scent. "
" absolutely love this scent, perfect for summer! I layer it after a shower with the body lotion and my skin stays lightly scented, never overpowering, all day.
The best part, these body sprays don't dry my skin out and combined with the body lotion, my skin stays hydrated throughout the day...very important here in the desert of the Southwest!!! I highly recommend this fragrance...slightly sweet, flowerly, but never cloying in my opinion. Just wonderful."
"I really hate a lot of scents out there, especially very girly ones, so imagine my surprise that I'm obsessed with this one! I originally wanted the Japanese cherry blossom lotion and told my boyfriend to buy me one for a present (this was around when Memoirs of a Geisha came out and they did tons of promotion for this line) but he accidentally bought the Cherry Blossom one instead. What a relief! The Japanese one had an undertone of musk I did NOT like.
I like how this is light, fresh, and a little girly but not overpowering. I usually go for cool, aqua based scents but this is my no.1 scent right now. There's a little fruityness (cherry?) along with a baby powder scent which I love. It's a little 'young' smelling, but not in the cotton-candy, vanilla kinda of way, which is good. I can wear this to work, go out, or just spray some on my wrist to smell whenever. My litmus test on how much I like a scent is this: if I can stand smelling it in a cramped, warm elevator, it's a winner for me. And I can definitely stand this one!"
"I'm a 41 year old who has shunned any type of mass market splash/spray since my experience with Jean Nate' in the early 70's. I own LE scents, HTF, finely crafted fragrances. I'll admit I'm quite a fragrance snob! :) BUT last year I was shopping and after washing my hands needed some lotion for my parched skin. I grabbed a Cherry Blossom tester at a BBW, put some on and went about my business. 5 minutes later I couldn't stop sniffing my hands. Acting on impulse, I grabbed a body cream and figured WTH and took a Cherry Blossom spray as well. The next morning I set about the task of appeasing my incredibly dry skin. I was fully prepared to layer this over my usual Alpha Hydroxy lotion and was surprised I didn't need to. Then the Coup d'Grace...I sprayed myself head to toe with the spray and fell in love. All day I kept thinking "Darn-I smell heavenly!" This becomes warm and musky on my pale, dry skin. It's very sexy and thick with a sharp note to keep my interest. My skin smells good, it doesn't hover-but settles into me. I smell it on the collar of my coat, my silk scarves stay scented-it's simply beautiful!! I was ill recently and this was the only scent I could stomach. To me, it's womanly, not necessarily youthful. I do occasionally spray it on my 7 year old daughter's hair when I'm brushing it. In the evening it still smells beautiful. BBW has humbled my snobbery. I've gone back and sniffed a few other BBW scents and I have to say "not bad!" My husband is grateful I'm buying a $10 bottle of scent compared to the $100 a bottle I'm used to spending! :)"
"I received this as a christmas from my aunt last year and I must say I absolutely love it. I work for a doctor and have the bad habit of smoking so before going back in the office after a cigarette break I spray myself with it so I don't smell like smoke. Some many customers loved the smell of it and asked me what perfume I was wearing and they themselves went to buy it. I have gotten more compliments from the cherry blossom scent then my burberry and chanel perfumes. IMO cherry blossom is a nice clean scent and definitely my bath and body works fav scent!!!!"
Dancing Waters Body Mist (RM65)
"This scent is only smells remotely masculine when you first spray it, in my opinion. However, the dry down is very feminine and pretty. It reminds me of fresh waterlilies and the ocean. For this type of scent, lasting power is very good. I love calming fragrances, especially at times when I am looking to de-stress, and this is it. If you like "water" scents or fresh, clean fragrances, than give this a try, and you probably won't be sorry."
"I love this scent. It's very clean and crisp like a shower in a bottle. Makes me feel happy instantly."
"This is the first fragrance from Bath & Body Works that I am truly devoted to. I'm not too fond of fruity or floral fragrances and this definitely seperates itself from those categories.
It came out as an LE last summer and then discontinued it in the fall. It was brought back earlier this summer due to popular demand. The smell is amazing. It's so fresh, crisp, pure. It's really one of the first fragrances from BBW that both women AND men can use. I love the shower gel. I love washing myself with it, it's almost invigorating in the shower and then a spritz of the body splash after the shower is like the icing on the cake. "
"I typically don't go for the regular B&BW fragrances.. I'm more of a Temptations kind of girl but after running out of 3-in-1s to buy I picked this one up in the store and couldn't bear to leave the store without it! It has surpassed Warm Vanilla Sugar as my favorite B&BW scent. It's floral-y but not so much that you smell like a walking rose bush. It's nice and light and perfect for the summer. Even my husband loves this one!"
"My 10 year old son got this for me for my birthday, he was very proud of himself! I do like the clean smelling scent. It doesn't smell like bar soap to me at all but when I do smell it, I just picture myself coming out of the shower and spraying this on and just feeling AHHH."
"I love this fragrance! It's one of my favorites from Bath and Body Works. I was so angry when they discontinued some of their best scents ever, such as Seaspray and Fresh Waterfall Mist. I am very much drawn to scents that remind me of the ocean and waterfalls, so I was happy when B&BW introduced Dancing Waters, because it falls into that same fragrance family. It really does remind me of the ocean and has similarities to some of their discontinued "water" scents. I noticed this one is slightly soapy (don't let that scare you, because I dislike most soapy scents), and it mainly smells like fresh waterlilies. It starts out as a bit strong and masculine, but the dry down is completely feminine. It is a very sparkling-clean fragrance, and I love how it is never too sweet. I mainly wear Dancing Waters when I want to wind down and smell simply fresh. It's great how the scent lasts long too, especially with the matching lotion, which is fabulous, by the way."
Sparkling Peach Body Lotion (RM65)
"Definitley agree with other reviews that it's not a pure peach scent. But, I do like it. I got this for my birthday along with the body splash, and I am happy with it - one of my favorite spring/summer fragrances. The consistency is pretty good - a little thinner than I suppose I would like, but it moisturizes so well and doesn't leave my skin greasy. Will repurchase."
"I'm so in love with vanilla scents that I never give any other scents a chance. My mom gave me this peach body lotion. She said I needed a summer scent, and I love it! I still love vanilla for the winter/fall seasons. As for summer, I will definitely be using the sparkling peach. It smells so light and sweet."
"I love peach scented products and this one is very nice. It's not the perfect peach scent I've been looking for, but it will do for now. It smells like a combination of peach and grapefruit. It reminds me of Victoria's Secret Sweet Temptation. Light, not too heavy."
"I just got this today. I really havent worn it much yet, but I tried it on in the store before I bought it. Let me just say, it smells much better on, than in the bottle. In the bottle is almost sickening, but after it's applied and dries down, it's lovely! I usually love peach scents, and this one is no exception. I am really pleased with this new line. I haven't tried the splash or the shower gel, but so far I am loving the body lotion. "
"I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I like this! I think "sparkling" peach is definately a good name for this. It smells almost bubbly and effervescent. It's not at all too sweet like most peach scents. I can't wait to get a full size"
