Here's a confession; I've never bought anything from Victoria's Secret. I'm not sure why, i'm guessing it just didn't appeal to me and to be honest coming from Scunthorpe there wasn't a whole lot of this on the high street. Fast forward a few years and living in Sheffield they opened up a store in Meadowhall. I wasn't immediately curious because the shop is a whole load of pink and a big wave of smell (i also don't think they do anything in my size, pfft) but recently i've been lusting after the body spray they sell. A few friends of mine have purchased some and every time i smell it, i fall in love. The scent was always so powerful and fruity and seemed to linger forever. Exactly what you want in a body spray because who wants the smell to fade after 5 minutes?
A successful shopping trip to Meadowhall on a Saturday with one of my best ones lead us to Victoria's Secret because i was determined to pick up at least one body spray. The place was filled with children which unnerved us a little but we headed straight for the body spray section. It was 2 for £18 which considering on the website it's 1 for around £16, is pretty good. After smelling each one they have to offer several times i settled on Pure Seduction & Mango Temptation.
Pure Seduction is a Red Plum and Freesia fragrance which is seriously beautiful. It smells super sweet and fruity but not too overpowering. It reminds me of something you would wear in the evenings during summer watching the sunset. It's a very fresh but also bold fragrance and i often find myself reaching for it in the mornings over my other body sprays.
Mango Temptation is an amazingly tropical smelling spray. It made me feel so fresh and summery. This spray is infused with Mango Nectar and Hibiscus. It's a fruity scent like Pure Seduction but as this one is Mango based, i feel like i should be sipping a cocktail on a beach somewhere sunny whenever i wear it.
As these are fragranced body sprays, i usually find myself reaching for them a few times a day because the smell doesn't stick around as long as a perfume would as it's not as concentrated. I don't mind a little top up now and then as i've been using them both for the last couple of weeks and have only used a tiny amount from the bottle. They last for ages!
I definitely think i'll be heading back to try some more of their fragrances when i finish these! I can't wait to find a new smell already!
Have you tried any of these sprays?
