A Thousand Wishes Fragrance Reviews

A Thousand Wishes isn't exotic or expensive. But I get more compliments wearing this than I do wearing fragrances that cost 5x as much. I keep a travel spray in my purse from November-February. It's easy to wear and it's pleasant.

So I have quite a bit of a confession to make about this fragrance, I really really like it! I've smelled this numerous times at bath and body works and I've always passed it off as "okay" or "eh, I don't like it all that much". But now, for whatever reason, I can't get enough of it. I should preface this by saying that lately I've been alternating scents like crazy (not all of the scents I alternate are bath and body works) and that I become obsessed with a scent for a small period of time and then move on.

I was in Bath and Body Works today, and I was looking for some new lotions to add to my collection and I came across this one (as usual) and I decided to smell it again and I really was enchanted by the scent. I asked my boyfriend to give it a sniff and he said he really liked it too. This is going to sound insane but right off the bat of course you smell a nice fruity tone with no berries but citrus fruits, but it also smells incredibly earthy. I mean EARTHY, almost as if there is some patchouli in this. I usually am not a fan of scents that are heavy on the patchouli but some scents that have it really smell wonderful. A Thousand Wishes is definitely more sophisticated than I initially thought. It has a small masculine edge which to me is slightly unexpected. I think this scent is perfect for mixing any other sweet smelling scents or even dryer scents. I can finally see now why this scent has been so popular and loved.

This is very nice and sweet. I love to use it when I take a bath. A few sprays into the water smells heavenly. It isn't unique or innovative, but it smells good, and that's what matters to me. The starfruit note is the only thing that is somewhat special, but even then there isn't anything that makes this stick out from other scents. The longevity and sillage aren't that great due to it being a mist, but I wouldn't expect anything else.

It smelled just okay in the store, but when I got it home and showered in it, oh man. I was in heaven. I definitely recommend this scent. It's flexible enough to work for the office or a night on the town.

Not sure why I bought this... I guess I am an equal-opportunity fragrance-phile, and I had a coupon - lol. The opening is promising - kind of fresh and fruity with a bit of sweetness - but the dry down is that typical B&BW amber-musky base that could be any of their fragrances. I also bought the diamond body spray, and it is a lighter version of the perfume. Just be sure not to overspray, as it can be cloying and suffocating. Overall, it's OK - if you're generally into B&BW or VS fragrances, you'll like this. A decent fragrance for running errands on the weekend, but not one I would wear day-to-day, as it's not really me.

I agree with the previous reviewer, I have smelled this smell a *thousand* times before in B&BW. I would compare it as almost identical to Velvet Sugar, which to me is nothing special. To me, this is artificial smelling and just isn't pleasant. To me this is kind of a jumbled sweet mess. I can't detect anything specific about it. It smells practically like as I mentioned Velvet Sugar as well as Be Joyful. This is the reason I don't like B&BW too much. Same recycled notes, different order on the bottle and they slap a new name on it.

The only one I like it Tahiti Island Dream. That one isn't remotely like this one but I'd recommend it if you like something sweet, a little tropical. Just throwing that out there.

well when i smelled it the first time i had to check the bottle again cause i was sure i smelled this before. dark kiss? be enchanted? twilight woods? that bourbon and strawberry thing? honestly this is like most of their other "famous" scents repackaged in a different bottle under a different name.

you can basically group the bbw scents together by generic smell. like this and all the ones i mentioned above are in one group. country chic, endless weekend, forever sunshine, love and sunshine in another... and so on. unfortunately for me, this is one of the generic bbw smells that i really dislike.

To me, this is a version of Forever Red. This version replaced Rum with Champagne...and what could be better than champagne? (Nothing.) Maybe Bath & Body Works has developed a "Guerlainade" that I'm smelling in both scents (I doubt it), but having owned and enjoyed Forever Red for 4 years, I stand by my comparison of the similarities in Forever Red and A Thousand Wishes. Forever Red was meant to be BBW's "high end" fragrance, and I'm sure it didn't take long for the company to notice that BBW customers generally don't care in the least about "expensive perfumes" and they definitely don't want to pay more for one scent when there are 50 other scents available for 1/2 the cost. For what it is, I personally love Forever Red as an uplifting scent that helps cheer me up on drab days in Autumn. I've used it mostly in the shower or as body cream, and, occasionally, as room spray too. I use BBW hand washes in all my bathrooms, all the time, and I carry the hand sanitizers with me everywhere, so I am familiar with almost all BBW fragrances. A Thousand Wishes calls to mind Amber Blush, Pink Chiffon, Velvet Sugar, Mad About You, Cashmere Glow...cuddly fragrances that are wonderful to wear at bedtime. (And huge sellers). A Thousand Wishes, for me, has replaced Forever Red and my Fall excitement scent because it goes beyond the candelit coziness and leaves openings for adventures. It's very much fun to wear at any time of day or night...anywhere.

Definitely get the peony and almond notes. It sounds like an odd combination, yet somehow it works perfectly! This is a gorgeous, sexy scent. It's very luxurious, quite like a glass of champagne- I do detect a hint of it in this scent, but not in a bitter, alcohol way, it's very light and subtle. I wear this any time of year, but I definitely see how it could be geared more towards fall and winter.

This scent was being heavily marketed as some kind of "customer favorite". I wanted to just smell what the big deal was all about. Typical fruit and flower bomb BBW scent. Smelled very generic to me. There was nothing that hit me as "unique" or "special" about it. Honestly, kind of reminded me as a remix of their sweet pea.

This is a rather light fragrance, especially in the "fragrance mist" form.
Initially it is a sparkling, summery fruity floral(interesting because of the starfruit) with a touch of almond, then the almond disappears for a while and a quince/peony accord dominates, but A Thousand Wishes still remains soft.
The drydown is a bit musky, with the amber that BBW likes to include in many of their fragrances, but the almond and starfruit also return.
This scent seems to gain strength in warmer or more humid conditions, so I think it would be ideal for a summer perfume.
Longevity is decent, while the sillage is close to a "skin scent". I suspect the EDT is a touch more powerful but this is still not a "loud" scent by any means.

It smells very generic to me. I have to try to find the Champagne and the almond note. Those two notes together sound amazing and perfect for a new year's fragrance. It mostly smells like sugary flowers just like Paris Amore and also a little like Mad About You. This one just lacks uniqueness. I still want to smell it in the EDP alongside Paris in the EDP, but my first reaction is that it is not special enough to buy a $40 bottle.

Ah. ....a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Seasons to All.
With that, I will review a recent gift.

Firstly, I will be gracious, and receive this with the utmost joy it brings, just because it was gifted to me. Ah, yes, fruity, with just the right balance of sweetness...in the lotion.
It smells like fresh strawberries in a glass of champagne and cream, sprinkled (heavily) with peonies.
Wearable, fresh, and most importantly, not cloying.
A scent I have smelled many times before. Non offensive.

Oh,what is this I see dancing in front of me? A boozed up, bonneted Strawberry Shortcake, the icon of the 1980's. Dare you bring vanilla here!!
Back, back!!
Oh, we'll fix that up with a few drops of damask rose oil.....be gone you fruited little tyke with your sneaky vanilla, and take your Blueberry Shortcake sister with you!!

Feliz Navidad.

I agree with the majority that I was underwhelmed by BBW's christmas release of 2014. The opening is citrusy, and maybe it's the red bottle, but I can't shake the thought of artificial red berries. I'm really not a fan of those fakey fruity smells.
It does become a bit more champagne-y after about 5 minutes. Nothing quite as remarkable as the champagne in amber blush though. The flowers just kind of get ignored all together and I start smelling a sugary almond dry down that is mushed up with a bit of the synthetic fruit. It isn't to die for but it's a lot better than the top notes for me.
My 7.5 mL was bought mainly out of vanity and the dry down. I love that BBW offers those cute little minis for reasonable prices, fun to try and collect.

My new signature!!! Reminds me of Amber blush some due to the champagne and Amber notes but this is much softer and joy as spicy in me. The Amber blush was very strong in my skin and I got a lot of compliments but I often felt insecure wearing it. I also like VS Amber romance but I don't wear it anymore due to the same issue I had with Amber blush and I was wearing the mists of those!

This is so fantastic because it truly does smell differenton everyone. I work at a women's shelter and a client of mine owns his and shares it with several other women who live there. On her, it's very fruity and sugary like velvet sugar and on another client more of the champagne and star fruit come forward. On me, the champagne scent lasts only 10 minutes, which is fine, and the fruit doesn't come forward at all. Instead it leaves my skin a beautiful almond and Amber with a slight peony floralness to it. it lays very close to the skin which is how I'm comfortable.

Also, I only wear the triple moisture cream of this because the cream has less of a fruit smell. At the store, the mists seemed very top heavy and I wanted more of the Amber and almond the cream has to offer.

I used to have Ferragamo's 'F for Fascinating' & I find that they smell very similar.
A 1000 wishes is more fruity, with noticeable starfruit. It is also sweeter and warmer than Fascinating.
I prefer this to Fascinating which can be a bit cold and harsh.

I got this today and I kept sniffing it trying to remember where I smelled this before and it hit me. Smells like Pink Vanilla Kiss from Body Fantasies, almost the same. But the Pink Vanilla kiss, which isn't in this database lasts longer and has more sweetness and the Thousand wishes has more musk. They have the same effervescent fruitiness. I like them both well enough but I wouldn't buy the Thousand Wishes, much too expensive in my country. The Body fantasies however, I keep repurchasing.

This is one of my new favorites from B&BW,IMO this is one of their best scents ever created.

**From the B&BW site..Top Notes: Sparkling Champagne, Twinkling Star Fruit, Golden Quince
•Mid Notes: Crystal Peonies, Purple Freesia
•Dry Notes: Gilded Amber, Almond Crème, Sugared Sandalwood, Velvet Musk

I can smell hints of everything above and IMO this one is a winner,I hope they make it permanent. This body mist has really great staying power and the scent IMO is sexy,elegant and not too fruity...the champagne note,musk,almond and mix of fruit & floral is perfect!!!! It has its own uniqueness!

I guess I'm the odd ball in this group but I've never purchased a B&BW Perfume before but with this one I had to!

Most of the fragrances from B&BW are all the same to me, very sweet and one dimensional well Thousand Wishes is nothing like those! This fragrance reminds me a lot of With Love and more recently Untold but with more of a sparkling champagne note and smoother finish. The lasting ability is very good but isn't overbearing or artificial. I've only been wearing this fragrance for a couple weeks but receive a compliment on it almost every time I go out! I'm in my 30's and this fragrance is far from childish or old fashioned, I absolutely love it.

I agree with most on this. Everything smells the same. With few exceptions, everything they make is an uber fruity floral with a cheap teenage vibe, and it's difficult to tell one from the other. I wish they'd get a little more creative sometimes. I know you can't expect the sky for the price, but they should try harder. But then you smell Vanilla Bean Noel, and want to buy stock in the company. :P

I agree that this is nothing special, as are most B&BW releases, but it is a fun, sparkly frag. For those who love fizzy champagne in a frag, this is a lighthearted, festive one. I agree the opening can be a little on the sharp side, and that could be the champagne note. The dry down is more gourmand and creamier though. I had a coupon, so I got the shower gel and body cream. It seems to be inoffensive, so if anything I can wear it to work.

When I first sprayed this on a sample ribbon, it smelled pretty good, but then, as it dried down, I started feeling sick. Very headachey I can't figure out what it is, since all the notes I saw above in the description are all ones that I like. For some reason, on the drydown -----even though I did not have it on my skin, Maybe it's just my nose, today, (Nov 8 2014), but it was the first one I smelled when I went in the store, and I had the ribbon with me as it dried down. I don't know, Maybe it would smell beautiful on someone. Yes, as Snicole82 said there is something really sharp in there....to me, almost like a cleaning solution. I think this should definitely NOT be a blind buy.

This scent is pleasant enough, but nothing different for BBW. It smells very similar to Velvet Sugar, with a little bit of Forever Midnight thrown in (not surprising, since FM was recently discontinued). I get something a little sharp in the beginning, but it becomes nicer after it dies down some. Overall,a nice,sparkly,sweet,festive scent for the holidays.

I think this scent is a really close match to a scent they had a few years ago called Jingle Billini. It's inoffensive, but in my opinion, pretty boring, and a bit too sticky sweet.

This smells similiar to Mad About You, but it's lighter. My friend agress. I perfer this over Mad About You. I also think it's a lighter version of Forever Midnight. Lately BBW fragrances are silmilar to each other. They really need to come out with something more original. The body cream smells more like Pink Friday by Nicki Minaj mainly because of the star fruit which is one of my favorite notes. I prefer the smell of the body cream vs the perfume. Overall I give this fragrance 8/10.

This isn't the most unique composition I've ever smelled, but it's quite pleasant, with really good longevity and projection for a B&BW scent. I sprayed it on my arm, went to bed, and it was still projecting within a foot when I woke up the next morning. Given the ubiquity of fruity florals, I'm not certain this is a FB worthy release, but it is most definitely worth purchasing the sample size and wearing it for a time. Thumbs up!
