Bath & Body Works Forever Red - REVIEW

Hello Beauties ,

Forever Red ... ahhh !!!  The most raved product by BBW captured attention even before it was launched... I fell in Love with its looks (packaging) and the name ... "Forever Red". I am someone who even picks perfumes by their outter looks (weird but true.. LOL) or should i say i have this six sense for perfumes LOL so i also ordered this perfume in my last HAUL from BBW to give it a try. Lets see if it was a HIT for me or not.

Product Description :

With a higher concentration of fragrance oils, our Eau de Toilette gives you a more intense, longer-lasting aroma. Master perfumers have blended a unique formula of the finest ingredients for a unique fragrance experience.
  • Top Notes: Fiery Pomegranate, Rare French Peach, Luminous Apple
  • Mid Notes: Red Peony, Night Marigold, Red Osmanthus
  • Dry Notes: Rich Vanilla Rum, Velvety Marshmallow, Oak Wood

Key Fragrance Notes:

    Our most luxurious fragrance ever! A passionate blend of pomegranate & red osmanthus with a sexy surprise of vanilla rum
Top Notes: Fiery Pomegranate, Rare French Peach, Luminous Apple
Mid Notes: Red Peony, Night Marigold, Red Osmanthus
Dry Notes: Rich Vanilla Rum, Velvety Marshmallow, Oak Wood.



My Review : 

Here’s my thought on Forever Red.  I might be in the minority here; don’t kill me, don’t murder me, don’t come at me with pitchforks; butas a matter of fact i din't like the fragrance.

It’s too strong for me and it just isn’t unique enough for me to rave. It kinda smells like many earlier BBW fragrances and to be its Specific its more Like Midnight Pomegranate, that are already available or were available at some point in history. I’ve already read a ton of raves so you might just like it. But it wasn’t for me.
 For some reason the scent does evoke the color “red” for me or kinda smells like “red”…maybe I’m crazy but the name doesn't seem suitable. This is a heavier blend of pomegranate and red osmanthus with a twist of vanilla rum. It’s actually that vanilla which takes away from the scent some and makes it TOO much like every single fragrance Bath & Body Works has done.

The scent is a sensual, warm, spicy fragrance that’s a very rich floral oriental. The Eau de Parfum formula is excellent. It has a strong long wear with a incredible linger on a mere spritz.

Overall, this reminds me of many of the scents Bath & Body Works puts out towards the Winter. It’s also very Victoria Secret-like in nature perhaps a lighter version of Very Sexy. Unfortunately the scent doesn’t really speak unique to me. The EDP formula deserves a hearty rave as it does have a very potent linger and throw however, the actual scent fails to excite me.

I bought mine from official site of BBW. Are you gonna say you dont have BBW outlet in your country ?? Now you  can buy anything from USA and get it shipped to your country at reasonably low prices from using Shipito Service.
 
Sorry Bath & Body Works, I just didn’t feel the love for Forever Red. Anyone tried it? How do you like the Scent ? Let me know in the comments below

  5. I have seen the Forever Red products so many times when walking by Bath and Body Works at the mall, but I have never heard anyone talk about them before. That's disappointing that they weren't that great. I feel like B&BW products are really hit or miss sometimes.
