Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Perfume Review

Beauty

The only thing I’ve ever bought at Victoria’s Secret were bras, underwear and workout clothes.  I’ve always stayed away from the makeup and body sprays because I felt like that was not Victoria Secret’s “speciality”.   Yet, I ended up buying Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Eau de Parfume a few weeks ago in a Duty Free shop at the airport and I’m in love.

Review of Victoria's Secret Bombshell Eau de Perfume with fruity-floral notes.

Bottle Design

The pink bottle immediately caught my attention with its beautiful horizontal lines, black ribbon and a VS stamped coin.  The bottle is sleek and sexy (at least as sexy as a bottle can be) and the signature pink stripes make it an iconic Victoria’s Secret product.

The first time I put the VS Bombshell Perfume on, was on a gloomy day in Russia.  Just a few spritz of this magical perfume put me in such an amazing mood and got me twirling around the room.

Notes

I usually like citrus-y smells and wear perfumes such as Moschino I Love Love (Grapefruit, Lemon and Red Currant Notes), D&G Light Blue (Bluebell, Apple, White Rose) and Gucci II (Mandarin, Bitter Orange and Black Currant), so the VS Bombshell was an easy choice for me.

The Bombshell has a fruity-floral fragrance type with notes of purple passion fruit, shangri-la peony and vanilla orchid tones.  There’s a great balance of the fruity and floral tones and a bit of spicy undertone comes out a few hours after application.

The scent gives me a boost of confidence and uplifts my mood, so I would definitely recommend buying this perfume.

Staying Power

As for the staying power – I would rate VS Bombshell a 6/10.  While it does not stay on all day, it definitely lasts more than 5 hours.

Price

I also think that buying the 100ml bottle is quite a bargain because it’s only about £12 more than the 50ml.

£38.24 for 50ml (1.7 fl oz)
£50.00 for 100ml (3.4 fl oz)

  • I do love scents at Victoria’s Secret, I own a couple which I bought in America as they are a lot cheaper over there. I think my Mum has this one, it sounds lovely anyway! I really love their Victoria Scent! xo

  • I am the same the only I have ever bought from Victoria secret is bras, knickers and lotions never tried their perfume but sounds interesting though a bit pricey

  • We totally have similar taste. Light Blue & I Love Love are my FAVORITES. I’ve never bought Victoria’s Secret perfumes, only body sprays. This sounds lovely. :]

  • Oh, this sounds very promising! I must admit I’ve never given the scents a second glance – I’m usually to busy admiring all the lovely lingerie – but next time I drop by VS I’ll have to give this a sniff!

    Not tried it, but it sounds nice and the bottle is lovely.

  • I actually went into a Victoria’s Secret shop for the first time last weekend and fell in love with this perfume but had forgotten the name of it – thank you for reminding me as I’m really tempted to order some – isn’t it just the most gorgeous scent?

    I’m a citrus girl, especially grapefruit. Smell is so evocative. I love the idea of having a signature scent but I couldn’t stick to one!
