Victoria's Secret Strawberries & Champagne Body Mist


These ultra-girly body mists have been doing their rounds in the UK blogging world ever since the Victoria's Secret store opened in London. Now, being quite the distance away from England's capital I haven't actually set foot in the shop. So I resorted to good ol' eBay instead.

The only downside to ordering products like this off of eBay is not being 100% on whether you'd like the scent or not. So I selected a few that I thought I might like and went over to Google to try and select one. I ended up buying Strawberries and Champagne. I'm a big lover of fruity scents and this sounded right up my alley. 

I was a little disappointed when I found that the champagne notes dominated the strawberry when you first spritz it on, but it fades quite quickly to a more subtle fragrance that is nice and light. It lasts around 5 hours which isn't too bad for a body mist.  It's definitely not my favourite out of all the perfumes and body mists that I've tried, but I like it enough to continue using it. If I were to buy another, I think I'd go with Coconut Passion.

I'm not sure how much this retails for in store, but this one cost me £8.78 from afrotraders on eBay.

    1. That's a very good point, I've only ever owned one perfume that's lasted the entire day and I've finished it. My favourite too haha! xx

    1. I actually quite like that it's not too strong, I think it could be too overpowering if it was stronger if you know what I mean! x
