I don't really do V.S perfumes. But I do have to say Miranda Kerr is one gorgeous woman, and could sell practically anything she puts her name to, couldn't she?

Woohooo! smell amazingly sweet and exotic like berries wrapped in wine, but the dry down is mostly chemical. Too bad cause I wish it would consistently smells great after the initial intoxicating excitement.

lmktacwa, I hate to call someone a liar but that sales associate isn't telling quite telling the truth! There IS a body mist; I just went to the store today, and they were fully stocked with them. But maybe the mist might be missing a few notes, oud included.

When I walked into the store, it smelled of Seduction Dark Orchid. I could smell the plum and the "darkness" of it as well the oud. When I sprayed it on me, all I smelled was tart plum. I like it, but I'll wait until it goes on sale.

I loved the notes so I trotted on over to VS to see for myself. It is very nice. Nothing out of the ordinary for this type of fruity-floriental. The website and the photo above show a Fragrance Mist which was what I was going to purchase. But once I got to the store, there was none to be had. The clerk told me there is no fragrance mist because the "oud molecules are too large for a fragrance body mist" which I thought was an odd response. Especially since I am now over on VS getting ready to hit "checkout" on the body mist she says does not exist.

Again, nothing spectacularly new in the world of plummy orchid, but for the price point, and the very pretty, sultry, plummy, scent, sure, why not...? Go grab some. Not woody enough for my taste. May have to layer on some Serge Lutens "bois" type perfumes underneath to make it appealing.

P.S. I have this feeling that the "oud" is synthetic...

This seemed too strong for me and the boyfriend did not like it. It's quite heavy, even though I do love plum, this just didn't work for me.

This one shoulda been named Bombshell Noir... Its dark n sultry but it still has a zesty undertone... Definitely not bad IMO but is too similar to Bombshell which smells like Incanto Shine which I already own... Could easily be unisex :)

Oud? In a VS frag? Wow, that just shocked me a little. This one sounds nice but if it is indeed a mashup of other VS frags, I will pass. I never get that excited about VS frags, but this one does look pretty enticing...

I tested this one the other day. It's nice and bit darker than a lot of their frags, but I kept getting the Bombshell undertone in it, which kind of annoyed me. I was on the fence about buying it anyway and that particular undertone of a fragrance I already have kept me from buying it. This one is much better than some of their previous releases, but I really wish they would make something completely different with no undertones whatsoever of their other frags. I may change my mind later on, but for right now, this one is a no-go for me.

I love this one, and I can really smell the plums in it. It's dark fruit/plum, and musky. I can catch both sweet and floral notes. Different from their usual scents, and I will be purchasing a bottle. It kind of reminds me of a darker version of Kat Von D Saint.

I got a sample and thought it smelled like a mixture between bombshell and the dream angels stardust lim. edition flanker so if you like either of those you will like this.
Personally I found this way to tart - like fruity tartness and also found there to be no softnessor depth to the scent on my skin.
Go ahead and try it, I'd be interested to know who this works for.
