Victoria's Secret Collection

by - Saturday, February 13, 2016

Victoria's Secret is one of my all time favourite brands/stores. It's unfortunate that there aren't any actual stores in New Zealand, as well as the price being a little bit more than what you would pay if you were in the States. 

Sprays



Vanilla Lace - Vanilla & Musk
This one is probably the sweetest scent I have come across. If you are not a fan of vanilla extract or baking scents then I would tell you to definitely stay clear from this one.

Strawberries & Champagne - Wild Strawberries & Champagne
 The name of this would make you think that this would be an obvious, maybe even overpowering, strawberry smell however I find that it is subtle enough and not too fruity and even a little bit florally. 

Pure Daydream - Pearl Orchid & Pink Currant
I have been loving this one recently because it's such a fresh scent that isn't too fruity or too florally. It has a hint of sweetness and is great for day time wear.

Pure Seduction - Red Plum & Freesia
So this one has different packaging to the rest and at first when I bought it I hadn't even realised - and to be quite honest, I'm not a fan. Since then, they have changed the packaging again and all in all I like the original look they had. Anyways this one is a very seductive scent (hence the name) with a more fruity scent. 

Secret Charm - Honeysuckle & Jasmine
This was the first scent I had bought years ago and I've repurchased this three times now. This is a perfect sweet scent, nothing too sickly or overpowering and I feel quite refreshed when I spray this on. 

Body Butters


The consistency of the body butters are great, I have them in, Pure Seduction, Amber Romance and Secret Charm!  

Amber Romance - Amber & Creme Anglaise
This is another great scent that I wish I had gotten in the spray version. It's very sweet and perfumed, super girly and very similar to vanilla lace. I would say it has a teeny tiny hint of floral in it but nothing you notice when you first smell.

Lotions & Creams


The body lotions are great products as well, I have mine in Vanilla Lace and Secret Charm. I have definitely tried better lotions but for the scent, I love them. 

Aqua Kiss - Rain Kissed Freesia & Daisy
I only have one of the body creams (which apparently you can use on your hands too) and I'm so glad I bought it in this scent. The consistency is in between a lotion and a body cream but a little on the lighter side. If any of you live near a river or a waterfall then this is exactly what this smells like (except a little sweeter). 

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed this semi-quick review and if you have any scents to recommend me I will be sure to go check it out.

* Also as you can tell I've been trying to figure out this whole product photography thing and I haven't quite mastered it yet so please excuse that :)

  12. I love so many of their scents! They actually happen to go on sale quite a bit where I live, which is both a blessing and a curse! I actually haven't tried any body butters yet so I'll be looking forward to it!

    1. The body butters are great, the moisture they provide with such a little amount makes it really worth it because they don't run out that quickly! :)

  13. I LOVE Victoria's secret and all their scents smell sooo good!! I used to have quite the collection but somehow I forgot all about the scents until I saw your post!! I remember between moving and getting married, I think I threw out old bottles and just forgot to grab more. Personal favorite is pure seduction, it smells SO DANG GOOD!! Love spell is another favorite (do they still sell it?!) Next stop: Victoria's secret to restock!

    1. I've never actually tried Love Spell even though everyone talks about it! I have seen them floating around in New Zealand because we get them branded imported - I'm not sure if they still sell them in the states or not :)

  16. Aagh this might just be my favourite post ever! I'm in love with their body mists, even though they seem to have changed the packaging again which is sad. The old bottles look so gorgeous on a dressing table :D wonderful reviews, I'd love to try more of these, they are so great for summer! xx

  19. I loveee their body sprays, my favourite is Love Spell! I haven't tried any of their body creams or butters yet though. They're not too easy to grab here, I always grab them in airports haha x

  21. Right so, while I have not as of yet been exposed to the myriad of scents victoria has to offer, I am currently dealing with an extreme obsession with bath and body works scents. So I get you. Like its kind of scaring me how many body sprays I have lined up on my shelf from them. Like how many body sprays does one sole human need??

    1. Yes! Bath and body works is amazing. The last time I was in the states I had already bought quite a few VS products so when I went to B&BW after I couldn't buy as much as I wanted to hahah! My favourite scent from B&BW is definitely warm vanilla sugar by far! :)

  25. I love the Victoria's Secret body sprays. Unfortunately Victoria's Secret doesn't have any stores in Northern Ireland, and even when I'm in England, it's just so much pricier than in America. Though I might just make a sneaky online order someday, as my collection needs to grow!

  26. I've got some of these! Pure Seduction and Mango Temptation are among my favourites. I have the newer bottles, which are a bit more expensive feeling but looks just as pretty on a desk!
