Victoria's Secret is one of my favourite beauty stores and my guily pleasure whenever I am in the States and their Angels range is one of the best.
A little bit of history - Victoria's Secret was founded in 1977 by a man who felt embarrassed buying women's underwear and felt the need for something easier. It has now turned into a billion dollar company with sales surpassing $7billion in 2006. They are mainly know for their lingerie but also do a fabulous range of perfumes, creams and make up. A visit to one of their stores is always quite exciting. They are decorated in a classy boutique style with black and white walls, pink accents and beautiful mirrors around. THe merchandise is displayed beautifully and really always you to browse and smell all the lovely beauty products.
The Victoria's Secret "Angels" are their models and spokewomen. They first came onto the scene in 1999 and now the Angel trademark is used in a lot of their products.
The Divine scent is described as letting you bask in euphoria. Vibrantly sheer, bright, and luminous with lotus blossom, waterlily, amber and sheer sandalwood. Domestic. Fragrance type: floral Top notes: lotus blossom, rose Middle notes: lily of the valley, waterlily Low notes: sandalwood, blonde wood, amber.
I use it as my regular perfum and find it very fresh and light and get a lot of compliments on it. I also use it in conjunction with the cream which I find to be very silky and sheer and leaves my skin feeling very soft and refreshed. It has quite a light feeling when you have it on but is also quite a potent smell and strong. The fragrance does last all day which is nice. Some other nice smells in the Angel fragrance are Desire and Heavenly.
The bottle I think looks very sophisticated and classy on a bathroom shelf. It has a tinge of pink and almost a women's body silouhette which makes it look dreamy and heaven like. It generally sells in the US for approx $60 so it is quite expensive but will last a long time as a little goes a long way and is well worth the price.
The brand: Victoria's secret is an American company, selling womens lingerie and beauty products. It started in 1977, Dream Angels Divine is the third fragrance in the Victoria's Secret Dream Angel perfume line.
Packaging: the bottle is elegant and made of clear glass with a pink tinge to the top. It is a very lady like, elegant bottle in a tall, slim design, somewhat resembling a womans body. There are quite a few different sizes: 4.2 fluid ounces, 2.5 fluid ounces, 1.0 fluid ounce, and 0.5 fluid ounces.
Smell: I find this a warm, light and sensuous fragrance. A "blend of lotus flower and water lily". It has quite an oriental feel to it, with musky base notes. Musk is a strong base note in all of the VS perfumes, but this perfume has the amazing capability of being subtly noticeable!
Durability: the scent is quite strong, but light at the same time. A few spritz will last all day, and is noticeable to people around you. If used everyday, 1 bottle would last around 4 months, but I have had mine for a year and as I only wear it on special occasions, it is not even half empty!
Price: a 125ml bottle is around £21.99, but prices vary considerably on different websites and in the shops.
