Victoria's Secret Bombshell Gift Set Review










.


Promise not to laugh but, I actually took photos for this post back in October. Which explains why there's leaves everywhere, haha, talk about procrastination! Anyways, earlier today I was going through my photos and noticed that I have yet to review my favorite perfume, Victoria Secret's Bombshell!





  


The Bombshell collection features a feminine, floral, seductive scent. This scent is also perfect for any time of year because it's not overly sweet.. nor dark with heavy woodsy notes.







Top notes: Tangelo, pineapple, strawberry, purple passion fruit.

 Middle notes: Jasmine, red berries, muguet, Shangri-la peony, vanilla orchid 

Dry-down notes: Musk, blonde woods, oakmoss





I purchased this gift set awhile back for $35 at a Semi Annual sale. The Bombshell Eau de Parfum retails for about $52 and the gift set around $68 bucks. Both prices are extremely affordable considering some perfumes  like *cough* Marc Jacobs Honey *cough* cost around $75 for a tiny bottle! Darn you for being so pricey!

In the gift set you get the Bombshell Eau de Parfum (50 ml/1.7 fl oz.), Body Lotion (100 ml/3.4 fl oz.), Body Wash (100 ml/3.4 fl oz.), and  mini Eau de Parfum (7.5 ml/.25 fl oz.). All products are full sized (well, except the mini Bombshell) and for the price I think this is the perfect.

As for the body was and lotion I enjoyed how moisturizing the products were but the body wash I had to stop using because my skin type is very sensitive to [perfume-y] scents. Ahg.. the joys of having sensitive skin!

Overall I love the scent but the only down fall about this product is the fact that it doesn't linger for a long time without the other products. So if you would like to buy just the perfume I would suggest taking the mini bottle with you to keep the scent from fading.

  8. Looks like a good deal. I also like buying sets occasionally. Sometimes they have stuff that I have never tried before, so it's quite interesting.

  25. I've been dying to try that perfume for sooo long, and the packaging is just perfection! I'm a huge fan of VS products and I badly want to try it. :) Although I wish the scent stays longer when we use it. Thanks for the helpful review! <3

    Take care always, love Christine ~ xo

  26. OOooh, I'm actually almost out of my current perfume and am on the hunt for a new scent. I might just have to try this out. I'm not a fan of overly musky scents, so I love that this is fruity and has hints of jasmine and peonies. It sounds like the perfect scent for spring. And that's awesome you got it for such a steal! Great review!
