Bath & Body Works Morocco Orchid & Pink Amber Preview Eau de Parfum review

I'm in #LOVE with these 'Preview Eau de Parfums'.

Bath & Body Works Morocco Orchid & Pink Amber Preview Eau de Parfum

I say 'Parfums' because there's currently three available, besides the two 'forever' ones they've always had. I don't know how they picked which new scents to "preview" but the ones available now are Morocco Orchid & Pink Amber, Endless Weekend, and French Lavender & Honey.

They retail at $8.50 each but they're on sale now!

Screen Shot! I searched for 'preview' so I don't know why there's a candle and gift card lol.
 The 'Forever' ones (Forever Red & Forever Midnight) have been in stores for forever and the bottles are made of plastic which cheapens it.

What can I say I love glass.
I love the bottles designs. I love the abstract print and that gorgeous blue color!
The cap just pulls off and the sprayer is plastic. I appreciate that there's a spray because with a lot
of mini perfumes they just leave it open for you to dab it on. 

They're about two inches high and so cute and mini! Perfect for the purse or just to look pretty on your dresser!

ANYWAYS on to the scent!!

The site description is:

Our master perfumers have captured the allure of an exotic Moroccan garden with a lush fantasy of Marrakesh Orchid, glowing pink amber, and rose petal water wrapped in apricot nectar and vanilla silk.

  • Eau de Parfum is features our most concentrated form of fragrance oil, for a long lasting indulgence

Key Fragrance Notes:

Top Notes: lemon verbena, apricots, desert sand accord, fig nectar
Mid Notes: Jasmine, Casablanca orchid, rose petal water,
Dry Notes: Vanilla bean, Kashmir wood, exotic amber

To me the scent is pleasantly floral and sweet. It's a heavier scent.
I like it. Dustin doesn't.
A few spritzes on the wrist and after a few seconds I had to put my nose to my wrist to smell it. 
For an Eau de Parfum? I'm not impressed.

So I just spray it a few times more all over and I still only faintly smell it. And now it smells slightly candyish. I'm liking this scent more and more now. 

So overall the Eau de Parfum wasn't as strong as my more expensive Parfums, like Alien by Thierry Mugler, so you'll need to spray more to equal the strength of say one spritz of Alien.

The full size bottle is $39.50 (currently half off!)
 (And it's design is beautiful! Like a castle from Aladin!)
MOROCCO ORCHID & PINK AMBER Eau de Parfum - Signature Collection - Bath & Body Works

Is it worth it?
You do the math.

Depends on how much you like the scent.

Victoria's Secret Limited Edition Island Getaway Whipped Body Soufflé

Victoria's Secret Limited Edition Island Rush Whipped Body Soufflé

 Victoria's Secret Limited Edition Island Getaway Whipped Body Soufflé

 If anything beauty product has souffle in the name I'm there. Everything is so soft and airy. 
I love the packaging and the colors used in this collection. The colors really do make you think of tropical places and warm sunsets. Perfect for Ohioans haha.

They all come with hygienic covers
A look at the formula
A close up!

 Endless Sunset features Hawaiian Orchid & Currant and is in the neon yellow packaging.

I love all three fragrances but this is the one that my fiance doesn't like so much. 

To me it smells pineapple-y with a little bit of a flower scent. It smells mainly fruity to me. This is my favorite scent of the three.

Island Rush features Pomelo & Coconut Water and is in the neon orange packaging.

To me this smells like a shampoo or a hair product. This is my least favorite of the three.

Victoria's Secret Island Getaway Whipped Body Soufflé in Tropical Nights
The back

Tropical Nights features Fresh Berries & Hyacinth and is in the neon pink packaging.

You can definitely smell the hyacinth in this, overall this smells very floral but not heavy.

After you apply the moisturizers the scent of these last a good 2-3 hours.

They moisturize nice but I still get more moisturizing properties from my Bath & Body Works Triple Moisture Body Cream but these are nice for summer.

The best part of these is actually applying them. It is literally like rubbing silk on your body. The formula instantly absorbs into your skin and it's the most non greasy moisturizer I've ever applied.
 It's a pleasure to apply. 

I'm sad these are limited edition, I love the formula. They are already sold out online but you can still grab them in store. I definitely recommend you do.
