I got emails this year–they’re definitely trying to up the public involvement. Not getting in to how dispiriting it was to see the slated frags. And–ack!–those girls are SO YOUNG. Especially the one in yellow. Log in to Reply Robin says: 13 May 2010 at 2:38 pm I saw emails, and other things online (esp. on Facebook), but this is the first video I’ve come across. Kind of funny when you think about it…or at least, it amused me. Log in to Reply debbie says: 14 May 2010 at 3:01 am The one in yellow is an Aussie and is 27 years old! Maybe us Aussies age well-wishful thinking!!

Log in to Reply alotofscents says: 13 May 2010 at 4:49 pm As a Victoria Secret fan, and one who knows that they have so much more than just the “fruity” florals, I hope they win some recognition for something other than their now discontinued So In Love ( moroccan rose, cognac violet leaves). I can’t remember which award it won, but apparently, their consumers weren’t buying it. I have no idea how fruity this one is, does anyone know the notes? They have some fruit frags: Body, Divine, Rapture, Heavenly, Instinct, and others I can’t recall. I wish they would send you some samples Robin! Your such a seasoned perfumista though, I’m sure the would just smell unremarkable to you. But that’s o.k. I love their white floral Divine. I think I am just sad because I remember when they were a boutique, that had very high quality satin pajamas. I still have a few pairs!…now they are thin and not well sown…mass production for you.

And agree…I used to shop at VS many years ago & thought they had quality stuff, but that’s been long over, now most of it is shoddy and I will admit I look at the fragrance line the same way…they seem bent on growth and short-term profits rather than quality.

Log in to Reply Robin says: 13 May 2010 at 9:43 pm Nah…I basically took it from the video name! Log in to Reply pigoletto says: 14 May 2010 at 5:48 am Has anyone looked at the VS site FAQ? Apparently everyone asks if they are bringing back Victoria. They aren’t. If it’s an FAQ, I would think it’s got enough demand to warrant a LE comeback at least! What a shame. Log in to Reply mals86 says: 14 May 2010 at 11:34 am I was a fan of the original Victoria but never bought any because I thought I couldn’t afford it. Now I own three small bottles of parfum (via ebay), and every single darn one of them has badly-deteriorated topnotes. That may be WHY they’re not resuscitating Victoria, the current fashion for fruity floral/gourmand notwithstanding. The wonky topnotes (nail polish, swimming pool, maple syrup) are a lot like what you’d get out of a really old bottle of some classic aldehydes-and-bergamot 50′s scent – and Victoria isn’t nearly that old. The formula must just break down quickly. Not to mention that it actually had some oakmoss in there. Log in to Reply Leave a reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
