~ Bottle ~
The bottle is tall and quite flat with eight sides. It has pink glass and there are vertical stripes on the back of the bottle which you can see through the front.
‘Victoria’s Secret Bombshell,’ is written in black lettering across the front of the bottle.
The neck of the bottle has a black ribbon around it and there is a small, silver, ‘VS’ symbol on the neck.
I really like the bottle. It is cute and girly. I love the colour and the stripes and I love the shape of it.
~ Scent ~
The fragrance is also really nice.
It has a lovely, fruity scent. I can detect orange in it, but it isn’t really girly as you may expect. It actually really reminds me of a masculine fragrance that my husband wears.
It certainly has a masculine edge to my mind.
The top notes are tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, strawberry and passion fruit.
The heart notes are jasmine, red berries, lily of the valley, peony and vanilla orchid.
The base notes are musk, woods and oakmoss.
It is a sweet scent. It has a tropical edge to it and the passion fruit note is very obvious, but the orange note remains present throughout and the fragrance keeps the masculine edge that it has from when it is first sprayed to when it has completely worn away. When the fragrance settles into my skin the floral notes are revealed. They are soft and sweet and combine well with the fruity notes. As the fragrance wears down it takes on a bit of an earthy scent, but the sweet, fruity notes are still evident.
It is still evident on my skin after 8 hours. It also has good projection and I notice it on myself throughout the day.
I think it is a fragrance best suited for daytime wear, but I have chosen to wear it for nights out also. Having the masculine edge I think it is quite an interesting scent.
I would recommend this fragrance.
It is marketed towards younger women and I think being quite sweet and fruity it would not appeal to more mature women as much.
I would definitely buy this fragrance again if my bottle were to run out. It is very unique.
