    Ughhhh. I’m just getting over the flu and reading that list of notes finishing off with Bailey’s Irish Creme(?!?) made my stomach tie in knots. Me thinks “too much” IS too much.

  2. peter says:

    Ugh, It’ sounds so sweet, it’s like liquid Splenda.

    • Robin says:

      It does sound sweet. Good match with the bottle.

  3. Aparatchick says:

    Can’t tell without sniffing, of course, but the notes lead me to believe that too much is more than enough.

    Remember that brief, shining moment when BBW was trying for something other than the usual sweet, frooty scents? I’m guessing that didn’t make sense for them business-wise.

    • Robin says:

      They are still trying to reach a higher end customer, but in a smaller way…that’s what the Forever series is. But those are sweetish too.

    Ha! This reminds me that I should go to Costco and buy the Bailey’s Irish Creme gift set which includes a good sized bottle of Bailey’s and two sparkly glasses. If I want to smell like Bailey’s Irish Creme, I would rather it come from my Bailey”s Irish Creme mustache.

    Regarding the BB&W demographics, besides overhauling the bottles and labels of their Signature Collection, they now also have hand wash that come in pump bottles with labels and bottle shape that look like tall bottles of Olive Oil.

    IMO, until it stops offering 60+ scents in every product category, the never ending coupons and the buy 3 get 3 free promotions, it will continue to be perceived as a shop for the masses (heh, I’m one of them :-)). With very few exceptions, I don’t buy anything there unless I have a coupon and/or the item is on sale.

    • Robin says:

      Their efforts to re-do the stores as more high-end apothecaries are long over, it is true. I liked them in that brief period though, when they were carrying other interesting brands and the stores looked less flashy.

    I was actually given the shower gel of Velvet Sugar as a Christmas present from one of my student’s parents (I am a school counselor).
    I actually liked it. But, that is just the shower gel. It would probably be too sweet if I used the lotion or the body spray, but the shower gel is quite pleasant. I can smell the “sugared musk” and I like it. Would I actually spend my money on it? I guess that is the million dollar question. Probably not…..

    • Robin says:

      Good to know, thanks!

    • Mcbuttons says:

      I received it for Christmas as well and it is a bit too strong on the sweet. Anything other than shower gel is too much.
