Anna Sui, how do I love thee?? Well quite a lot actually for the creation of this absolutely edible Secret Wish:Magic Romance scent. I have never actually tried the original Secret Wish but am so in love with Magic Romance I may never get to try the original!!!
This product is so lovely I would completely consider buying it again on eBay or somewhere like that, I hear that they do a shower gel to it as well which I bet is blimmin gorgeous.
Well I own the 50ml version of this lovely cream. The bottle complements the fragrance in the range, being made of pink plastic with a silver flip top cap.
It is easty to use and comes out at a decent rate, not too much but not too hard to squeeze out. The consistency of the cream is lovely not too thick and heavy but not light and runny, they have created a very good product.
Anna Sui Secret Wish Magic Romance perfume is a beautiful blend of melon, bergamot, lemon, orange blossom, tuberose, coconut , amber, musk, lotus blossom and jasmine and of course the lotion matches up absolutely perfectly.
I love the jasmine the most, it puts a smile on your face, it smells amazing!!
It sinks into the skin rather quickly leaving behind the unmistakenly gorgeous Magic Romance fragrance behind whilst at the same time leaving the skin soft and feels like it is being cared for. The cream is effortless to apply and as I said the consistency makes it a pleasure to use, and will make you feel a million dollars.
It's fun, fresh, fruity, floral and most definitely flirty, and worth buying on its own to use with or without the perfume because as a stand alone body moisturiser it really does the trick.
Anna Sui Secret Wish Magic Romance Body Lotion 200ml is available on Amazon for little over £17 which should last you a good while. of course other outlets like eBay may be cheaper.
It is completely sensual and irresistible and so recommended.
Anna is a big Rock and Roll fan,who loves to incorporate vintage clothing into her sometimes eccentric but highly individual designer fashions.
Her career as a fashion designer took off in the 1980`s and as time went by Anna started to incorporate cosmetics,fragrance,shoes and accessories into her range.
If you have any of her perfume then save the bottle !..Her beautiful perfume bottles are now becoming collectors items.
Anna has packaged her `Secret Wish` range in very feminine pink with the `silver fairy` on the front.
She has succeeded in making the `Secret `wish` fragrance very special and individual.
I have had lots of free samples from Anna`s website,they are only a taster,but its obvious that she takes pride in creating her wonderful fragrances.
I saw the Body lotion on offer at FragranceX for £12.79 ..200ml .. (a good £1.50 lower than most other places were charging ) and decided to treat myself.
I have dry skin,especially on my arms,so I started off applying a little of the rich lotion .
At first the white thick creamy lotion floats gently on the top of the skin,but it doesn't take long before you see it melting..the smell is so sweet!
I could definitely pick out the jasmine,with the orange blossom coming a close second.The sweet florals predominate ,which is perfect for me.I like the undertones,but I like them to be subtle.
My skin was beautifully soft and so fragrant.
It was impossible to put any other perfume on after using the Anna Sui body lotion,it would have been sacrilege to mask that long lasting fragrance.
My next treat just has to be the Secret Wish Magic Romance perfume..im keeping an eye out for the best price !
I got this body lotion along with the perfume from Anna Sui. I also have the original Secret Wish perfume and body lotion. In comparison, the Secret Wish Magic Romance smells a lot sweeter than the original Secret Wish. The bottles are so lovely, they look so pretty on my dresser.
I find that these body lotions compliment the perfume perfectly and layer the scent nicely, so that it stays on for longer. I find that when I use the perfumes on their own, that the scent fades after a couple of hours. However, when you apply this lotion first, it lasts much longer and is also lovely and moisturising. They can also be worn on their own but the scent doesn't last that long either. So, to get the most out of these lotions, they are best used with the perfume.
The scents of Secret Wish and SW magic romance are perfect for girls who love light scents. The original smells more fruity and the Magic Romance more sweet and slightly flowery, but keeping to the original scent too.
This lotion, along with the perfume would be a perfect gift for girls who love light scents or pink things, as it would look beautiful on their dresser.
Anna Sui ~ Secret Wish Magic Romance ~ Body Lotion
Secret Wish Magic Romance is a perfume which was launched my Anna Sui in 2006. As well as the perfume there are also two other Secret Wish Magic Romance fragranced body products which are body lotion and shower gel. The body lotion can be used to compliment and layer the scent of the perfume giving it more staying power.
All of the Anna Sui perfumes and beauty products have really nice creative looking bottles and packaging and the body lotion is no exception. The body lotion which I have is a 100ml bright pink plastic tube which has a silver flip style lid. I really like the design of the body lotion tube because it has the same little fairy design printed onto it which matches the bottle of perfume.
The body lotion is easily dispensed from the plastic tube by gently squeezing it until you have dispensed the desired amount. I really like the consistency of this body lotion because it is really thick and creamy. Some body lotions which I have bought in the past have been really thin in consistency and left me rather disappointed but the consistency of this one is fantastic. I find that I only have to use a tiny amount of the body lotion in order to moisturise my full body. I find that a blob the size of a fifty pence piece is sufficient amount to use because it spreads evenly across my skin.
When I'm applying this body lotion I like to start from my feet and work my way up my body; because of the thick consistency of the body lotion I find that it is much easier to apply to my skin if I massage it into my skin in small circular motions. As this evenly distributes the body lotion onto my skin and it is absorbed much quicker. When I am massaging the body lotion into my skin it glides over the surface of my skin easily and doesn't have a sticky or greasy feeling like most perfumed body lotions do. As soon as I start applying the body lotion to my skin I can immediately smell the gorgeous light fruity aroma from it.
The best thing about this body lotion is the fact that it is absorbed into my skin very quickly and I don't have to wait for a few minutes for it to dry. I also find that the body lotion leaves my skin feeling moisturised and soft. Usually when I buy fragranced body lotions to compliment a perfume they only fragrance my skin and don't moisturise it, but this one moisturises and leaves my skin smelling gorgeous. The scent which this body lotion leaves on my skin is almost identical to the matching perfume; the only difference being is that the body lotion has a slightly more delicate aroma. The fragrance is really light fruity and fresh and not at all heavy or overpowering, the fragrance from the body lotion lasts on my sin for about 4 hours before it gradually fades away.
I found that if I used the body lotion and then sprayed the perfume onto my skin that it gave the perfume more staying power. This is because the matching body lotion acts as a base for the perfume to stick to and gives it an extra hour or two staying power before it needed reapplying. I would say that the perfume lasts on my skin for about 7 hours when I use the body lotion to layer the scent. If I don't use the body lotion to layer the scent then the perfume only lasts on my skin for about 5 and a half hours before it needs reapplied.
The actual fragrance from the body lotion is almost identical to that of the perfume although the body lotion has a more delicate and lighter aroma. The body lotion has a gorgeous fruity Melon and Lemon scent which is complimented with a delicate Jasmine floral note and a gorgeous sweet coconut note. There is a wide range of fragrance notes in the body lotion but the Melon lemon Jasmine and coconut are the ones which are most identifiable when wearing the body lotion.
The Body Lotion and perfume are described as having blends of Bergamot, Sicilian Lemon, Melon, Orange Blossom, Tuberose, Jasmine, Lotus Blossom, Rosewood, Coconut and Amber.
Anna Sui Secret Wish Magic Romance body lotion, perfume and shower gel can be bought from larger department stores such as Debenhams. I bought my 100ml tube of Secret Wish Magic Romance Body Lotion from Debenhams and paid £8 although you can buy a 200ml tube too and that costs £15.
