I would describe Victoria's Secret Bombshell Summer Edition Eau de Parfum as a juicy exotic fruit scent combined with a smooth relaxed floral, light musk, and sweetness. With this scent, it's important to wait for the dry down. When I first spritzed the perfume, I was taken aback by the inital burst that had a freshness that was a bit like air freshener. However, this disappears quickly and is replaced by a nice warm exotic fruity floral.
The floral is relaxed and not overtly flirty or bright. It's a nice pairing with the exotic fruit. I can detect the summer flowers lily and jasmine. They're not loud, but are an intriguing addition in their own right. The base is creamy and a balanced. The musk, amber, and wood seem to make nice contributions.
With Victoria's Secret Bombshell The Summer Edition, I was expecting to find an easy love since I'm typically a 'pink' fruity floral fragrance kind of a person. However, I was surprised that it wasn't love at first spritz. Because of contrasting expectations, it took me a while to wrap my head around the starfruit. The scent has certainly grown on me, and I'm looking forward to adding it to my summer rotation. If you're a fan of fruity floral scents, I'd suggest taking a sniff. It's fun, different, and a little intriguing thanks to the starfruit. Thanks for reading! Have you tried either of Victoria's Secret's summer scents?

I've eaten starfruit before (quite often as a kid), but I don't know that I would be able to pinpoint the smell! I guess I'll have to smell first and then decide, haha. I have so many fruity florals though... -_-ReplyDelete
Hi Larie--- how awesome! I've seen slices of starfruit here and there but haven't eaten it. It's so pretty though :)Delete
Oh oh, you're making me want to go to Victoria's Secret! Most of their scents are too sweet or indulgent for me usually but I love anything beach-related. :)ReplyDelete
*oops*! Usually I'm too distracted by the other goods to browse the beauty section, but I think I'm going to take a few spritzes myself tomorrow :)Delete
