Victoria's Secret has launched Bombshells in Bloom, Body by Victoria and Pink Vacay, three new fragrances for women. Other recent scents from Victoria's Secret include Forbidden.
Bombshells in Bloom ~ a flanker (the ninth, I think) to 2010′s Bombshell perfume. "A whimsical spring fling that lingers: Bombshells in Bloom is the fresh new version of our award-winning fragrance with crisp, floral notes that are bound to keep you sexy today, sexy tomorrow and sexy forever. This floral fragrance wraps the skin in a flirty blend of pink freesia, red apple and water lily." In 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum ($52/$68), 250 ml Body Mist ($25), solid perfume fragrance ring ($35) or in matching body products.
Body by Victoria ~ they are calling this new, but it might be just a repackaging of the 2012 Body by Victoria. "Treat the body you love to a refreshing new scent from the iconic Body By Victoria namesake collection. With luminary notes, this intimate and airy fragrance now comes in a gorgeous bow-adorned bottle. One of our most sought-after and loved fragrances, this scent dresses the skin in a fresh blend of crushed leaves, freesia and water hyacinth." In 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum ($52/$68), 250 ml Body Mist ($25).
Pink Vacay ~ "This limited-edition fragrance is beachy and warm—paradise in a bottle. This spring break-perfect scent refreshes your skin with a blend of raspberry blossom, passion flower and sugared vanilla." In 50 ml Eau de Parfum, $47.
These sound banal at best. And VACAY? Inner curmudgeon snarls and shudders and slinks back to work.
The Pink line is geared even younger than the regular VS line — tweens, probably.
Vacay is a horrible horrible name. And yes, Pink is geared toward tweens (one of which I have in my house, and yes, she wants stuff from Pink while I find the whole thing appalling).
Future fragrances releases from the line will include Selfie, Cray-Cray, and Amazeballs.
Ha — I would buy Pink Amazeballs — who could resist??
I probably shouldn’t mention that “vacay” reminds me of “v-jay-jay”. And while “amazeballs” sounds like a terrific cheese-based appie of some sort it definitely does not sound like any perfume I would want to buy…
Adding — why are Victoria’s Secret perfumes so expensive? Aren’t they basically poured from the B&BW vats into somewhat fancier bottles?
I assume they know what the market will bear, and that’s what they charge? Agree, the prices are not what you’d expect from a mall chain that churns out that many perfumes a year.
The release of Body by Victoria is a repackage of a different perfume (http://www.perfumeemporium.com/perfume/12766/Body-Victoria-Secret)… Apparently also known as “The Fragrance” because that’s what the box read. lol I can’t believe they’re raising the price on this… went from $49 for 3.4oz to $68… YIKES!
