So, I happen to really love unique, niche fragrances. I’m always looking for something different and special. You might even call me a fragrance snob. But I’ll be the first to admit, I have a different love of Victoria’s Secret perfumes.
When I was in the 8th Grade and still pretty naive I remember my friend Christine got a bottle of Heavenly for Christmas (she also got a bunch of other rather “mature” stuff like a Fido Dido hoodie, an Interview with a Vampire Box Sex, etc..). I recall being amazed by the fragrance gift, as was my other friend, at the time. I think we were both in awe of such teenage-like gifts. Especially a perfume from Victoria’s Secret.
Needless to say, in some aspects, this was a turning point for me and the start of a long love affair with VS.
I remember that same year I ended up begging my mom for my own bottle. Since that time, many, many bottles of Victoria’s Secret fragrances have passed across my vanity. I really like their scents although I’ll be the first one to say that in recent years many of their fragrances are starting to turn into a Bath & Body Works-like experience where everything starts to smell exactly the same as the next release.
But I continue to buy for some reason!
I’ll also be the first to say that their formula seem strong at first mist but end up fading into oblivion rather quickly.
So, that’s why “Intense” caught my eye today!
Intense? Really? Like is the formula stronger? Better stronger? Good linger?
One can hope so!
This lovely little fragrance is a warm blend of salted praline, coconut, and creamy florals.
I’m eager to try it!
It’s available now in stores and at victoriassecret.com.
