“It’s the little luxuries in life” – Victoria’s Secret
Few years back, we had only one Victoria’s Secret store in the whole of Melbourne and that was at the Melbourne Airport. My wonderful colleagues from a previous job gifted me with a Victoria’s Secret perfume gift set for my farewell as they knew how badly I wanted one of them. Sometimes when I look back at my life, I realise that I have some amazing people who make my life so beautiful. Owning this gift set was the little luxury I had in my life. My addiction with Victoria’s Secret started the moment I opened and smelt their fragrances.
“Fragrance is the perfect complement to lingerie. The first to touch your skin, the last to linger” – Victoria’s Secret
Victoria’s Secret sure knows the secret desire of every woman’s heart and they have created some fabulous perfumes to fulfil these desires. For someone like me who loves to try all their best sellers, it would make sense to get the gift sets with mini 7.5ml bottles. They are the mini or travel range of all the full sized perfumes and the small bottles look exactly like the full sized version. A nice fragrance always lifts your mood up on dull days and I love to carry one of these in my little purse where ever I go.
Glamour Tip: Any perfume stays longer on your skin when applied over your favourite moisturiser. Heat is what activates any perfume. The pulse points on your body (where your heart rate can be felt) are the best spots to apply a fragrance due to the warmth of your blood. Some such points are located behind your ear, at the bottom of your throat, on your wrist, inside your elbow, and behind your knee.
The gift set given to me was a 6 mini perfume set and the package made me fall in love with it. I’m a sucker for beautifully wrapped or boxed products and this Victoria’s Secret gift pack was love at first sight for me. The set contained the following perfumes:
· Victoria’s Secret Angel Perfume (7.5ml)
· Dream Angels Heavenly Perfume (7.5ml)
· Noir Tease Perfume (7.5ml)
· Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Perfume (7.5ml)
· Victoria Perfume (7.5ml)
· Very Sexy Perfume (7.5ml)
Victoria's Secret Angel fragrance has a freshness and sultry warmth with succulent notes of sparkling plum, sheer violet, gardenia and amber accented with a touch of pink pepper, musk and agar wood (oud) – a luxurious ingredient known as “Fragrance Gold”. This is one of my favourite from the whole lot as it stays on my skin for a long time and smells heavenly. This perfume makes me wonder if Angels were true, they probably smell like this and I have already finished the entire bottle.
Dream Angels Heavenly perfume opens with the notes of quince, cardamom, ivy and mandarin. The heart includes lotus, white peony, freesia, iris and violet. The base contains white musk, sandalwood, orchid and vanilla. This perfume always flooded me with memories from my childhood back in India. My house in India always smelt of fresh cardamom as my father was a cardamom planter and we always had bags of cardamom lying around the house. Every time I sprayed this fragrance, the base notes of cardamom bring the feeling of nostalgia. This has to be my favourite out of the lot and I have already purchased the full sized perfume.
Noir Tease perfume was previously launched in 2010 as Sexy Little Things Noir Tease and in 2017 it was released under the name “Noir Tease”. The scent has notes of Black vanilla, frozen pear and blooming gardenia. I’m not a big fan of fruity fragrance as they do not settle very well on my skin. This floral-fruity perfume failed to please me like its counterparts.
Victoria’s Secret Bombshell perfume’s top notes start with purple passion fruit, and the mid notes are compiled with Shangri-La peony fragrance while the base notes are formulated with vanilla orchid fragrance. Its floral scent is sure to make you feel feminine and mischievous at the same time. This fragrance is stated as Victoria’s Secret award winning fragrance of all time and it is a well deserved title for this perfume. I get compliments every time I wear this perfume and it has a lovely but not too strong scent that lasts a long time on me.
Victoria Perfume has a sparkling blend of red berries, Victoria rose and crème brûlée. This fragrance has a very Fresh scent which is good for summer time when you want to smell fresh all day long. This perfume would be a great to wear on your date nights as they make you smell Sexy and Totally irresistible.
Very Sexy Perfume has the notes of Vanilla orchid, sun-drenched clementine and midnight blackberry. Like I said before, I love anything that looks pretty and is packaged well. The best part about this fragrance is its packaged in a bold red bottle and a black cap, both the colours being my favourite. This scent is very strong and little overpowering, but I still like how it smells on me.
