Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods Review

Anyone see the Ryan Seacrest interview with RPattz? What’s up with that? Here, take a look.

Haha his public relations rep was going berserk there for a sec. I honestly thought that the entire romance thing they had going on was a complete PR stunt but maybe not? Is that why his rep is all crazy OMG do not talk about the romancez right now! I can only assume that maybe all the talk is true and they really don’t want to talk about it because it’s bad publicity for fan-pires who love RPattz. You know, they want him to be single, lost and lonely, looking for his one true love… really appeals to the tweens and the too old adults like the Muse who dig him. I honestly want to be with him so I can teach him proper hygiene techniques because he looks all kinds of greasy on most days of his life but it’s ok, I still lurves him with all my little itty bitty heart.

No but seriously I thought it was all rather interesting how that played out!


Speaking of Twilight, today I’m wearing Twilight Woods and I’m SO saying that Bath and Body Works used a coy marketing technique with the name of this fragrance. They wanna draw all the fan-pires into purchasing it. You see Twilight Woods and you automatically think Twilight, Vampires, Go Team Jacob….oops did I say go Team Jacob? What? Taylor looks hot and he looks like he washes too, that’s very appealing.

Twilight Woods 1

But seriously it’s a marketing tool I tell you!

Jump for the review!

Released this Fall, Twilight Woods is the newest scent available at Bath and Body Works and from what the Muse has seen so far quite popular.

I was thinking woods would mean leaves, dirt, perhaps patchouli, something dark. Turns out that’s none of what Twilight Woods is about.

Twilight Woods 2

It has key notes of berry, a mimosa, and apricot with a warmer base that Bath and Body Works refers to as “warm woods”. Who even knows what warm woods means but for me it’s a sophisticated blend that will work best in the evenings with a slightly fruity base but a very warm woodsy dry down. It’s deep but not overwhelming, complex but not crazy, just a generally soft, sensual blend that leans towards fruity but morphs into elegance due to it’s the dominate woodsy notes.

It’s actually not something I’d have chosen for myself but I had a lot of people ask me to review it and I’m glad I ended up doing so because I do like it. I wouldn’t recommend it for day time wear but it’s a rather perfect blend for evenings out. I have the Eau de Toilette and honestly the linger and throw is just as good as any expensive, posher brand of perfume on the market. It wears very well and makes a beautiful addition to your Fall and Winter perfume wardrobe.

Twilight Woods 3

Likey alot.

Available now for as low as $19.50 from Bath and Body Works.

Try it out, I think you’ll like it.

Tried it already?

Tell me what you think!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Musey, don’t hate me, I love you like I love fluffy kittens, but I just ain’t a RobPat girl. I still see him as Cedric Diggory of Harry Potter lol.
    And that totally knarly hair just don’t do it for me either, the only man on earth who can carry off a bouffant hairstyle like that and still look like sex on legs is Hugh Jackman xD.

    • the Muse

      ok, I forgive you as long as you promise to lurve me as much as fluffy kittens forevers!

      LOL! He was hot as CD, he became Edward and got dirty LOL! HAHAHA yes but I suspect he’s bisexual 😀

      i think he’s a good looking kid but the hair is crazy, he looks so unwashed and unkempt with it like that!

  • Phyrra

    I actually want to try this scent. I’ve just been too lazy to go to BBW. I have seen a few reviews on it being a nice, unusual scent. Love the bottle design, too.

  • Hailee

    I got the lotion twilight woods, EL OH VEE E so I also went back and grabbed the plug in wall scenty oil version….it smells like poop. Haha

    Now I’m scared to try the perfume so I think I’ll stick to the lotion

    TEAM JACOB!!!! Edward only likes her for her scent. Jacobs words ” I actually care for you, Bella” 😀

    • the Muse

      poop hailee? Ew! LOL gross! I better have someone sniff me just in case I missed the eau de aroma of poop! lol!

      LOL oh come on team edward so slams team jacob you guys don’t have a chance 😀 even though you have a cleaner person to contend with that doesn’t mean you’re the winning team 😀

  • Dao

    I got a coupon for the mini spray and I have to say I love this scent. And I do agree with you, BBW is getting good at marketing. This scent is too yummy to be a vampire perfume.

    • the Muse

      hehe def too yummy for vamps Dao 😀 But I think it’s a rather coy marketing technique especially with New Moon coming shortly 😀

  • Jen

    Hi Muse 🙂 The BBW site says that there is a note of coconut in this… could you tell me if you can smell it, and if it is very strong? I love woody scents, but I don’t like coconut – a little whiff every now and again could be tolerable if the rest of the scent works with it and sort of hides it, but “in your face” coconut grosses me out. 🙂 Just want to know before I drive all the way to my BBW to sniff this 🙂

    • the Muse

      really jen? dude no coconut here…I really don’t get that note at all. even the fruit notes listed are just an underlay I get more fresh almost floral a little dept of wood, but not a ton.

      def not smelling the coconut me love!

  • Kate

    A girl after mine own heart, I love RPattz too. Is the Muse planning to buy anything from the Twilight Beauty collection to review? (Pretty please!) I’m going to check out this fragrance next time I go to BBW, you can’t beat the price.

    • the Muse

      lol I’m all pissy over twilight beauty 😀 b/c of the preordering crap…I’ll see what I can arrange hun 😀

      go team edward!

  • LostCauseFoundEffect

    noooooooooooo don’t switch teams
    seee the reason he doesnt shower is because
    he is just so into character that he is trying to cloud the smell of bellas blood with the stench of himself to protect her
    see? when you look at it like that
    it is………….

  • audrey d

    im from socal and i listen to KIISFM every morning. Ryan Seacrest actually explained to the listeners about that whole showdown. He said that he didn’t notice the lady holding up 2 fingers indicating only 2 questions allowed. So I guess when he asked the question about Kristen, that happened to be the 3rd question. I have to say though, that lady went berserk. I think she could’ve handled it a lot better

    • the Muse

      hey audrey I still thought she went NUT-SO on him LOL but Rob has really been avoiding the topic in general he was on Letterman and it was cut and dry I won’t answer the relationship question…I’m trying to figure out what the big deal is? I think so too, she really looked like an ass getting all huffy about the situation imho!

  • jackieg02

    Dang, she shut that interview down quick. I am Team Edward and all, but dang, Jacob is hot. He is making it hard to pick a side!

    I took a whiff of Twilight Woods on my last BBW trip and I didn’t like it. I may have to smell again on my next mall trip. And I think the name is a marketing thing. Everybody is sucking off Twilight these days.

    • the Muse

      omg jackie jacob looking all kinds of yummie especially when they get rid of that stupid hair! LOL!

      take another whiff it’s quite good! I don’t normally like blends like this but I likey 😀

  • Marina

    Love this! I ran out and bought some of the travel size lotions when they first became available- before the other full-size products saw the light of day. They have EVERYTHING now! Which is smart, because all the Twilight fans like me will go out and buy the whoooole collection. Not what I’m doing, but it’s a smart move. I also got the roll-on perfume, and I like it a lot. Haven’t used it much, but it’s nice and allows you to get just the right amount of fragrance so it’s not too overbearing.

    • the Muse

      hey marina! yay another lover 😀 I purchased the roll on a few days ago from BBW 😀 I like it, good for touch ups! It’s a really nice blend. I’m wearing CO Bigelow’s new Winter Lemon today which I’m also adoring!

  • laura r

    TEAM JAKE!!!!!
    i was team Jacob from the books, and the movie only made it more so. Edward’s too dirty and (strangely) too femme for me. he was fine as CD though.

    • the Muse

      lol laura. I kinda find edward character wise sexy but Rob outside of Edward needs a showerz 😀

  • Neece

    Just got this for Christmas.. Go Mom! I have to say this scent works for me and someone in marketing got a nice bonus for this little label inspiration.. BUT is it just me or does is smell a bit like Jelly??? Seriously that was my very first impression when I smelled it.. Jelly..HA HA alas I wear it anyway and sorry Girls no Team Twilight guys for me.. I have my own real life and in living color British boyfriend to drool over thank you and he will go see Twilight with me….. LMAO!

  • Joyce
