Bath and Body Works Golden Sunflower Perfume for Fall 2020

What are the chances that Bath and Body Works Golden Sunflower Perfume is anything like Elizabeth Arden Sunflower? Just between us? I still love Elizabeth Arden Sunflower as much as I did when I was a freshman in High School! I think Sunflower is sort of my first real “adult” perfume memory. I mean, there was body mists and perfumes from CVS like Exclamation (am I dating myself here? I am right?) but my first real counter perfume memory is Sunflower. To this day I still own a bottle and mist it on from time to time.

I wonder if the new Bath and Body Works Golden Sunflower Perfume will smell like it?

For Fall 2020, Bath and Body Works launched this in the Signature Collection that includes shower gel, body lotion, and fragrance mist. There’s also an EDP formula as well! According to the brand the notes include sunflower petals, orange flower and fresh vanilla.

I like the smell of sunflowers and of course vanilla but orange flower can be iffy. For example, Lush Orange Blossom is gorgeous but sometimes white florals don’t always work well for me. I’m not sure how I feel about sunflowers, vanilla, and orange flower appearing all in one fragrance. Will it be sweet? Will it be all floral? Someone rated the fragrance mist a three but sadly, the review was removed it looks like.

Anyone smell Bath and Body Works Golden Sunflower Perfume yet?

Did you enjoy it?

I’m looking forward to trying it out and I’ll let you know what I think!

Bath and Body Works Golden Sunflower is available now online and it should be hitting stores this weekend or next week at the latest!

    I am looking forward to this one too. Probably, because I just love sunflowers. It would be great if it smelled like the Elizabeth Arden scent. I will be happy if it just smelled like Autumn, or something that reminds me of Autumn.

    I remember back in the mid-90s or so, BBW had a scent called Happy Daisy that smelled like the Sunflowers fragrance. It has long since been discontinued but I did love it.

      I do too! It’s a gorgeous flower for Fall. Honestly, I’d be happy with anything that smelled autumn-like too! ;-D I can’t recall Happy Daisy!!!!!! Some of the 90s stuff really slipped past me!

    I remember Exclamation! It came in a round white bottle with a black vertical plastic piece that looked like an exclamation point. I did not wear it, but I did stock it at CVS when I worked there in high school.

    I disagree with you on BLM rather I think All Lives Matter. Did you donate to the family of the children that lost their lives because of the violence in Chicago and Atlanta? What about the retired police officer who was gunned down in Minneapolis, who was African-American, who was protecting public property. Where is his justice? By the way, have you tried CoverGirl’s Spectrum Collection for women of color? Or done reviews since you say you support black-owned businesses? A black man, Bernell Trammell, was killed recently in Wisconsin because he was wearing a MAGA hat. Police are still looking for his killer. Where is Mr. Trammell’s justice.? It seems BLM are very selective on the black lives they protest about.

    In 2018, bbw had a smell called Autumn Blooms it was marigold, honey smell, it smelled like early Fall going into mid Fall pumpkin spice season, I wished I stocked up. Last August, bbw did cactus blossom and pear praline with graham cracker and it smelled too much like Thanksgiving foody scent and not like August I envision. I am really hoping the sunflower scent reminds me of 1995 early Fall even if it doesn’t even have to smell like Arden. I wonder if this will smell like sunshine and daisies, either way I’m ready for early fall floral scent that doesn’t have musk in it. I’m not ready for a heavy scent yet.

    If its vanilla ish,I’m out. Sweet vanilla scent doesn’t remind me of sunflower and late summer.
    More earthy,than sweet.
