Wondering what fragrance to choose for winter/fall? I like warm, with a tinge of strong fragrances of wood and musk are something I prefer than the light, citrus or floral notes. That is exactly what I like in the Victoria’s Secret Amber Romance Body Mist from their Secret Garden Collection.
Fragrance Notes: Top note of Cherry and Chamomile a trademark of Victoria’s Secret body mists. Mid note of Vanilla which then combined with the Base note of Sandalwood, gives a sweet fragrance.
Packaging: It comes in a plastic container, which is a rich amber yellow in colour along with a golden dispenser, making it travel friendly.
Price: INR 699 for a 250 ml bottle
Staying Power: Top note fades off in about an hour and then Vanilla lasts for a long time, a minimum of 6-7 hours of lasting fragrance in a temperature of 25°C to 30°C with a humidity of 30% to 50% , in a place like Bangalore, India, to be precise. Haven’t tested this anywhere else though.
My Opinion: A gourmand style sweet, sugary, strong perfume for a fall / winter evening and definitely not for the day. I’d classify this as a winter/fall fragrance, more so because of its strong Vanilla and sandalwood notes. However, If you are looking for those intense vintage amber fragrances that have a touch of spice, a tab bit of bitterness to it, then this one is definitely not for you. It did give me a headache, so if you cannot tolerate sweet strong fragrances then stay away. I use this one very scarcely, like just one spritz away from my nose, on my inner elbow to avoid headaches. Not a fan of this fragrance, and I wouldn’t buy a big bottle of it as it is meant only for fall / winter. Also, I prefer the vintage spicy amber fragrances much better than this sweet amber fragrance.
