Hello everyone! Welcome to another Jaqtastic Review! This is another product that was featured in the Cosmo Voxbox by Influenster. This is the Forever Red- Exclusively at Bath and Body Works.
The card that came in the Voxbox reads:
"Forever Red Eau de Parfume Exclusively at Bath & Body Works: $10.00 for .25 fl oz/7mL/ $44.50 for Full Size.
A touch of red is pure magic! Bath & Body Works introduces you to their new, most luxurious fragrance ever, as you lavishly spray on a passionate blend of pomegranate & red osmanthus with a sexy surprise of vanilla rum, for a forever enchanting way to fragrance. Everyone will be commenting on how great you smell!"
The sample size is a pretty good amount- compared to the unusually small bottles many companies tend to give out. It is a .25 fl oz bottle, which personally for me, can last a few months! Especially with how strong this perfume is. 1 to 2 sprays is enough for me! (Restrict it to 1 spray if you have severe allergies!)
So the bottle takes on a simplistic view; however, at first glance I automatically pictured an elegant, older, woman holding this product. This is not to say that only older ladies wear this! Just that it gives off a very classy vibe.
A strong vanilla smell radiated off the bottle. The smell took me back to the times where I would be around my grandmother- it reminded me of how strong and independent she was, yet how absolutely sweet she could be as well. How comforting. I can say that this is one of the main reasons I love this product!
The smell soon took on an almost extreme fruity and sweetly scent. This is not something that should be over used too much! When I sprayed this on, I started violently sneezing, however my allergies soon settled down as the scent began to mix around with my body chemicals and lost its power. It mellowed out and lasted for a few hours. Amazingly, I sprayed this on a piece of clothing on Friday, and when I went to use it the following week, the smell was still slightly lingering! Very good lasting power.
Overall I love this smell- despite it being too strong at first, over time a very mellowed out fruity-vanilla scent lingered- it became obvious that it was very alluring to most people around me.
Seriously! I've had people lean towards me and stand just a bit too close just to catch a whiff of what I was wearing! (: I recommend this product 90% of the way. Points off for those who have allergies or are sensitive to strong smells.
So! Some Tips!
o If you are someone who has allergies, try to spray it away from the neck area- as to not have it all up in your face. Try spraying it on your clothes instead, on your wrist, or on the back of your neck. If not, just stick to one spray! I personally preferred spraying it on my clothes- the scent will last longer.
o If this still causes your allergies to react, try buying the other forms they have of this product- such as the gels, or lotions. They are said to have a more lighter scent!
