Victoria Secret Bombshell Diamonds Eau De Parfum


I was in Leeds a couple of weeks ago for a reunion with my lovely Uni friends. I have some of my most favourite times with those girls - although they are terrible enablers. We went shopping in the new Trinity Centre in Leeds which is amazing and we all bought quite a few bits and bobs.

We went into the Victoria Secret store in Trinity and marvelled at all of it's pink goodness. They had a huge sale on and there were some fantastic reductions, especially on the fragrances and gift sets. I was so annoyed that I had to get a train back home as otherwise would have stocked up on gift sets for presents- they were selling for £15 from £75!

After trying out lots of the different scents I decided to buy the Bombshell Diamonds- which is a limited edition version of their classic Bombshell perfume. It is a very girly scent but not overly sweet with the key notes (I'm not sure whether 'notes' is correct but you get what I mean) being vanilla orchid, iced hyacinth and sparkling grapefruit. The bottle is pretty special- it's inspired by the Victoria Secret wings (which on a side note, I'd really like to just have, I'd always wear them) and is sparkly and lovely.

I have a couple of criticisms with the first being that the bow/wings make it quite tricky to spray and it's also not that long lasting. If I'd bought it for the RRP of £48 I would have been a bit disappointed but I got it for £12 in the sale so can't complain at all!

What a bargain for £12! I'm hopefully going to uni in Leed in September, can't wait, it sounds like a fantastic city.

What a wonderful bargain! I really like VS' 'Fabulous' fragrance, I can't get enough of it. I wasn't a fan of Bombshell when I first tried it but will give it another chance. xo
