Bath & Body Works Tahiti Island Dream Eau de Parfum is a new Summer 2015 fragrance that launched with the Bath & Body Works Tahiti Island Dream Collection. It’s unclear to me at the moment whether Bath & Body Works Tahiti Island Dream Eau de Parfum is limited edition or if it will remain a permanent part of the Bath & Body Works Perfume Collection. I imagine it’ll be permanent but unfortunately, I’m a little iffy about that.
I applaud Bath & Body Works for introducing more perfumes lately. Recently, they did five 1 oz perfume blends for their Hawaii Collection, all of which I hauled, which I thought was an excellent addition to the release. Why? Because no matter how many times they tell me they reformulated their fragrance mist it still has poor sillage. And yes, I know, everyone tells me, “LAYER!” but I’m not a fan of Bath & Body Works Body Lotion, it’s sticky, so I don’t think it’s so unrealistic to want a fragrance mist which actually has a little bit of saying power. That’s why I do prefer their perfumes as they do have a better linger and a stronger throw for me. Honestly, I wish they had released a few of the Southern Comfort fragrances in a perfume as I’d buy them!
So indeed, right now I’m happy with the way things are going at Bath & Body Works Perfume headquarters. Keep launching the perfumes and I’ll keep buying ’em!

This comes housed in a square ombre turquoise bottle with a round ball topper. It’s a really pretty bottle and compliments the Wild Madagascar Vanilla bottle as they are the same style just differently colored. It does have a neon green rubber wrap around it which I’m not keen on as I think it cheapens the look of the bottle but you can easily remove it should you like!
Bath & Body Works markets this one as a “sexy summer blend” of cocnut water, Tahitian vanilla musk and kiwi blossom. It’s getting some raving reviews and I admit I like it, a lot but I hate to say it’s very generic to me. Sorry. I’m literally cringing as I say that because I honestly feel they put a ton of effort into the packaging and even the fragrance formula which has a great throw and linger. But…it’s just Bath & Body Works fails to create anything truly unique in fragrance and their scents all start smelling the same to me. I’m not sure what but this reminds me of some other scent that they might already have available or perhaps sometimes from the not so distant past they released.
Top Notes include Fresh Coconut Water, Sparkling Mandarin, Golden Pear, and Kiwi Blossom with middle notes of Jasmine Petals, Water Lily, and Lush Frangipani, and dry down notes of Tahitian Vanilla Musk, Skin Amber, and Australian Sandalwood. Sounds complex doesn’t it? But it isn’t. It’s just a really nice fruity floral scent. I wouldn’t say it’s tropical by any means but it feels fresh, sweet, and nice for Summer wearing. I get a lot of floral notes mixed with sweetness it kinda reminds me of a sweet pea freesia cocktail. I wish there was a bit more vanilla maybe something gourmand or even warm and creamy but this is really fruity and sweet. Again, I like it, it’s just very repetitive.
As I mentioned a few times in this review the throw is great with just two mists of the fragrance and three mists should get you through the day. They formulate some of these perfumes very well and they work great with my body chemistry and wear a lot longer than the fragrance body mist line!
I’d buy Bath & Body Works Tahiti Island Dream Eau de Parfum again! It’s a very nice perfume! I just wish it was a LITTLE more unique! I have dreams that Bath & Body Works will ditch the sweet florals and develop some gorgeous gourmands! A girl can wish.
