Candy, Baby Body Mist

I have never written a so conflictedly glowing review. I mean, conflictedly isn’t even a word, but here goes.

I tried on every single scent as Victoria’s Secret in search for my new signature. I liked some of them, while none really blew me away. I remember spraying Candy, Baby and not really liking it. However, I went home and the scent changed, mixing with my body chemistry in a way that I later loved. I was confused because I didn’t remembering liking the mist I’d sprayed on at the store, but couldn’t stop smelling myself at home.

I returned to the mall, intent on figuring out what I loved. I was looking for the super sweet, cotton candy scent that I’d loved at home. Candy, Baby seemed to be the right one, but I couldn’t find any that smelled right. The problem is that this scent smells almost entirely of alcohol when you first spray it. You need to give it some time for the alcohol to evaporate before you can really smell the sugar in it. The longer I use the product, the more I get used to the alcohol and can smell the cotton candy right away.

And that scent is young, sweet, flirty and feminine. It’s so sugary that it isn’t for everyone, but I like my fragrances to be sweet, and what’s sweeter than spun sugar? It definitely a good replacement for the pink cupcake body spray that I was replacing. I spray it on generously because the scent is actually pretty mellow once the alcohol fades. I might also spray it twice per day if I want to refresh. It’s not going to last forever, but that’s the case with body sprays.

I paid $12 for the bottle, which is 8.4 ounces, directly at the store. It’s not listed on the VS website at all, but you can get it on Amazon for a few dollars more. I’m not sure if I’d pay the $17, but I’d definitely head down to the mall to see if they had it again when I run out.
