Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Perfume Review
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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
