After 16 hours of research evaluating 105 products, we picked Victoria's Secret Bombshell Eau De Parfum as our top choice.
Not only can smelling good increase self-confidence and perceived attractiveness, but olfactory is linked to memory—so it’s super important to make a good impression in the fragrance department, and a Victoria Secret perfume will impress.
When you think of “sexy” brands, Victoria’s Secret usually is one of the first that comes to mind, right? Well, we’ll let you in on a little secret—they do perfume just as well as they do underwear.
Whether it's Victoria Secret Bombshell, Angel Perfume or a host of others. We picked the best.
What’s the bottom line?
We’ve included both perfumes and body mists in scents ranging from floral and fruity all the way to deep and musky—and everything in between. Regardless of your fragrance preferences, we promise our list of the best Victoria Secret perfume includes something for you.
The newest fruity floral to hit the Victoria’s Secret fragrance family will provide you a bold new take on your old favorites. With the addition of raspberry liqueur, praline, and jasmine you’ll feel bold, sexy, and, dare we say…scandalous.
While you can find the Eau de Parfum on Amazon and other third-party fragrance websites, Victoria's Secret does not currently sell this fragrance in stores. That being said, don’t get too attached because it may sometimes be difficult to find.
Like many of the other Victoria’s Secret fragrances on our list, Scandalous features a fruity, floral scent, but with undertones of black peony, raspberry liqueur, and praline. Add to that top notes of jasmine and you’ve got yourself one distinctive fragrance.
Since the jasmine adds a kick that makes this perfume a bit louder than what you would typically expect from Victoria’s Secret, we would recommend this fragrance for evenings or colder months.
However, you can still expect the sexy feminine base you’ve come to know and love from your favorite Victoria’s Secret scents, which makes this fragrance equally as suitable for daily wear if you're not afraid to don something bold.
$49.30 for a 3.4-ounce bottle comes out to well over $14 per ounce. While this is pretty middle of the road for a perfume, keep in mind that the price may continue to increase the longer you are unable to find this scent in Victoria’s Secret stores.
According to Victoria’s Secret, this fragrance smells like springtime, fresh laundry, and bright skies. Umm…where do we sign up? #perfumegoals
Unfortunately, this is another fragrance mist, so if you’re looking for longevity move along. Also, reviewers say that this reinvented formula is slightly different from the original and missing a tiny hint of apple, which long time users find to be a tad bit disappointing.
The central notes of this perfume are tiare flower and sea spray, which translate to fresh, clean, and tropical. Need we say more? Oh, and of course, you’ll pick up hints of fruit as well…which shouldn’t be a surprised since this seems to be Victoria’s Secret's go to formula.
We’ve heard this perfume is perfect for Sunday Funday and kicking it on campus, so to us this scent brings back fond college memories. But really, this perfume is subtle and laid back, perfect for everyday wear or even a night out.
Just remember, this a body mist rather than a concentrated perfume, so if you're looking for something to last you all day you will want to be sure to carry a travel size bottle of this bad boy in your purse at all times.
The price of this body mist comes out to $16.50 for one bottole, or $20 for two. And that’s NOT on sale! Just wait for a semi-annual sale to come around and we guarantee you will be able to stock up on this quality perfume at an amazing price.
As the name suggests, this is another one of the Victoria’s Secret signature scents that has been around a long time (since the early 2000s in fact). With an unprecedented fragrance that is sure to spice things up (see what we did there?), you too will be unable to resist Very Sexy by Victoria’s Secret.
Do be aware that, unlike some of the other perfumes on our list, this fragrance may come on a little strong. Use sparingly…you’ve been warned.
Very Sexy combines notes of vanilla, orchid, sun-drenched clementine, and midnight blackberry to bring you a uniquely spicy, almost peppery, fragrance that will make you feel sexy and seductive.
While we appreciate the staying power of this perfume, it can actually be a bit overpowering. For that reason, we would suggest you save this little beauty exclusively for nighttime and special occasions.
Through Amazon this perfume will cost you $48.90 for a 3.4-ounce bottle, which is right around $14 per ounce. Not cheap, but not the most expensive fragrance on our list! Especially if you’re looking for something spicy and sensual.
Like we said, this perfume is completely boudoir inspired—from the name all the way down to the fishnet packaging. But, even if you’re not into boudoir, this scent has been around for quite a while and continues to be one of the top selling fragrances for Victoria’s Secret. Definitely give this perfume a try if you're looking for fun, flirty, and feminine.
The longevity leaves something to be desired, and the fragrance itself can give off a mature vibe that does not lend itself well to younger generations of women.
Tease combines gardenia petals spiked with black a vanilla, unexpected notes of frozen pear, a touch of sandalwood, and sultry finish of warm Gourmand. This scent will react with your body heat to create a truly unique fragrance that will tantalize the senses.
Unfortunately, even though this fragrance comes as a highly concentrated Eau de Parfum, you shouldn’t expect it to last longer than half a day or so. That being said, it may serve you better for date night or a dinner with girls rather than an everyday perfume you would wear from morning to night.
At $55 for a 1.7-ounce bottle, this is one of the pricier options our list…especially considering that it doesn’t have great staying power. However, if you’re looking for something truly unique we highly recommend you give this fragrance a try.
To be straight, this is not technically a perfume, but a fragrance mist rather. Nonetheless, Love Spell by Victoria’s Secret has been around almost as long as Victoria’s Secret itself and generation after generation of women cannot help but appreciate the fruity, floral, deliciousness that is Love Spell.
If you’re look for a true perfume or Eau de Toilette, this is not the product for you (not to mention it’s a bit lacking in the longevity department). But, if you’re not a fan of perfume in the traditional sense, definitely give this product a try.
As we mentioned above, this is a body mist rather than a perfume—so expect hints of peach, cherry blossom, and white jasmine. Almost like a floral fruit salad, but better!
The problem, however, is that the concentration of this formula is not nearly as intense as perfume or Eau de Toilette, so don’t expect it to last nearly as long. For a body mist though, this fragrance will still stick around longer than you would expect.
Love Spell is perfect for a country concert, a summer day, or a beach vacation, and the packaging is no hassle and anti-spill, which makes it perfect for traveling. Don’t expect to wear this from morning to night without having to reapply a few touch ups, but it’s versatile enough to translate well for just about any occasion.
The base price of this product is $18 for 8.4 ounces, but currently you can get it online for about $8. Yes, that’s right, we said $8—or just over a dollar per ounce! At that price you can afford to buy gallons of this stuff and bathe in it, or buy one in every flavor (may be recommend Amber Romance, Aqua Kiss, or Coconut Passion). Change your mood and your mind as often as you want!
Heavenly is one of Victoria’s Secrets most-loved fragrances. Expect a light musk perfect for any romantic occasion. Plus, the bottle is just fabulous and will fit in seamlessly on any dresser or powder room sink.
Keep in mind that this fragrance is, well, a bit mature—better suited for grown women than teenagers. Additionally, if you’re not a fan of vanilla, look elsewhere. Reviewers report the vanilla can be slightly over powering.
Heavenly by Victoria’s Secret is, warm, musky, and, well, heavenly. With notes of white musk, sandalwood, vanilla, and just a hint of white peony, this fragrance is perfect for anyone looking for something that's not too sweet, fruity, or floral.
While this fragrance has recently undergone a bit of a face-lift, the central notes all remain the same—while just adding a fresh appeal to younger generations.
Heavenly exudes both elegance and sensuality with its distinctly musky scent, making it perfect for a romantic night out (or in).
Another added bonus here is that Heavenly features a longevity that you won’t get with Bombshell, and, honestly, most of the other best Victoria’s Secret perfumes on our list. With that being said, this perfume is incredibly versatile and a great choice any time you need your fragrance to last from morning to night.
At $55 for a 1.7-ounce bottle (or just over $32 per ounce), this fragrance is right on par with most of the Victoria’s Secret perfumes on our list.
Bombshell by Victoria's Secret is a subtle fruity-floral scent that knows no boundaries when it comes to age or occasion. It's a statement fragrance that an be worn day or night and will draw compliments from both men and women.
The staying power of this perfume isn't great, but at this price point it's about what you would expect.
Victoria’s Secret always sticks to a simple and sexy formula, and this fragrance is no exception. With just a few key notes of vanilla orchid, Shangri-la peony, and passion fruit to give this perfume its sweet and distinctive aroma, you really cannot go wrong with Bombshell by Victoria's Secret.
Perfect for when you’re feeling fun, feminine, and flirty. So really, this perfume is perfect for any occasion.
Just like with everything else from Victoria’s Secret, wait for the semi-annual or annual sale to purchase. However, even without a discount, the price of this perfume will not break the bank. Expect to pick up a 1.7-ounce bottle of this perfume for right around $30, which is pretty middle of the road compared to the other perfumes on our list.
Imagine Adrianna Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, or Miranda Kerr for a little while. You probably came across the stunning ads of these world-famous models wearing their favorite Victoria Secret underwear.
Victoria Secret is such a one-of-a-kind fashion house because it embodies women’s perfection. If there’s one brand that captures feminity, sensuality, and sexiness — all at once — it’s very much Victoria Secret.
All women, once in their life, have dreamed of becoming one of these super hot Victoria Secret models — or to wear these lovely, hot, and sexy panties the brand is famous for, worldwide. Plus, the fashion house has an extravagant collection of fragrances for each woman to express her sexiness.
How to choose your Victoria Secret Perfume? Which fragrances fit best your personality? How can you detect the aromas and decide which one will match your skin? Let’s explore.
Even if the American brand got criticized for oversexualizing their ads, the brand image remains strong and long-lasting in the mind of their customers — who are young ladies like you, like me. Founded in 1977 in San Francisco by Roy Raymond, Victoria Secret brings the hottest lingerie and womenswear to juicy ladies.
The brand is commonly associated with stunning supermodels and brings utter elegant lingerie and vibrant fragrances that make all heads turn. Victoria Secret is mostly known for their beautiful underwear, but the brand offers a great selection of ultimately sexy fragrances, too.
In the early 80s, Victoria Secret entered the fragrances market to bring an all-in-one hot concept to women. Today, the fashion house has over 326 perfumes — the newest one being from 2019. The earliest Victoria Secret perfume was named “Victoria” and was born in 1989. Working with prominent parfumiers such as Annie Buzantian, Lucas Sieuzac, and Ron Winnegrad to name a few, there’s a unique fragrance to choose each day for every day, and for every woman.
Finding your signature scent — or statement fragrance — takes time and devotion. The notes of a fragrance are like a musical metaphor and have three notes. At first, you need to study the top, middle, and bottom notes of the fragrance. Later, you can decide to go either for perfume, Eau de Perfume, Eau de toilette, or Eau de cologne, depending on your budget and needs.
Top notes: Known as headnotes, these refer to the strongest smells of the fragrance which will dominate for about 5 minutes on the skin — before liberating the middle notes.
Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes, these scents are the body of the perfume and showcases its full expression. Middle notes last on the skin from 10 to 60 minutes.
Bottom notes: as rich and heavy scents which last throughout the day, bottom notes are stronger. These notes also stay longer on your clothes, scarf, or tee shirts — or your boyfriend’s skin or even your cat’s fur.
Try the fragrance onto your wrist, and let it breathe for a few seconds. Take your wrist up to your nose and smell for 3 seconds. Analyze which notes come to you.
After a few minutes, smell again, and identify the new notes that stay on your skin. This process will let the middle notes arrive at you. For a deeper taste, try the fragrance and wander for a while to refresh your nose. After 1 hour or 2, smell again, and let the bottom notes express themselves.
If there’s a beauty consultant, you can have fun describing which notes come to you, and what’s left on your skin after a few minutes. Another fun experience is when you come with one or two friends to the shop, and everyone tries on the same fragrance.
After a while, you can all compare the notes and scents on each skin, which will bring about different facets of the fragrance. Perfumes smell different from one skin to another — which is due to body chemistry, the skin condition, the food diet, and the lifestyle of each person.
It’s better to apply the perfume to your pulse points describing the areas of your skin where blood flow is the strongest. This specific area can be found onto your wrist and this is where your fragrance will develop better.
Perfumes are made from botanical extracts and aromatic compounds of various percentages. The Perfumed Court classifies the scents as follow:
Perfume extract: 20%-50% aromatic compounds
Eau de Parfum/ Parfum de Toilette: 0-30% aromatic compounds
Eau de toilette: 5-20% aromatic compounds
Eau de cologne: 2-5% aromatic compounds
This is a general rule, yet the final blend or composition can vary from one perfume house to another. Also remember that the less aromatic compounds, the quicker the aromas will evaporate. So if you need a smell that lasts very long, go for a perfume extract. On the other hand, if you don’t mind a smell that wears off quicker, choose an eau de cologne.
Bombshell Eau de Parfum
With notes of purple passion fruit, Shangri-La peony, and Vanilla orchid, this perfume is one of the most enthralling. This delicate, floral fragrance leaves some fruity scents over the skin, perfect for a little romantic dinner or a casual date. Wear this perfume during the hot summer days where the notes of the fruits melt with the fresh summer breeze.
As its name indicates, Tease isn’t a perfume for the shy woman. Originally released in 2010 as “Sexy Little Things Noir Tease”, this elegant perfume has been relaunched in 2017 and is now simply branded as “Tease”. With warm notes of black vanilla, frozen pear, and gardenia, Tease is a sweet and juicy fragrance that is best to wear for a professional meeting or a cocktail dinner.
Wearing another evocative name, Crush brings the latest touch of sensuality for the hot woman. Launched in 2016, Crush has a nostalgic touch with pink peppercorn, peony, and Ashok flower blended in harmony. The vivid and extremely feminine twist of Crush could fit an artistic woman, a dancer or a writer, whose personality could shine with this fragrance.
Love Spell Eau de Toilette
Launched in 2015, Love Spell is another fruity floral scent for women who dislike strong perfumes. With cherry blossoms top notes and jasmine middle notes, this fragrance is best for an early evening sipping a glass of champagne or to wear for an art gallery day. The elegant, joyful jasmine notes bring a layer of purity and echo a faraway paradise.
Introduced in 2007, Very Sexy wears its name perfectly and was born as a floral and oriental creation. The musk bottom notes sparkle a sensual vision of the busy woman, who travels in some exotic countries. This fragrance reminds her of a fantastic journey to reach the most ultimate glamourous vibe. Fun and freshness with middle notes of camellias and mimosas make this fragrance romantic.
Love Eau de Parfum
Like most Victoria Secret fragrances that celebrate the inner beautiful self, this scent is not only loveable but also dramatically iconic. Born in 2017, Love is a fresh and powdery fragrance that smells fresh juniper and apricot blush. The sweet, floral accords of the aromas make this perfume light, sensual but without any eccentricity. It suits young women best who are in quest of their first love.
Created in 2018, Love Star is one of the newest addition to Victoria Secret’s vivid scents. With subtle notes of rose and lily, Love Star is the “more woman” version of Love. This wet fragrance depicts a night full of adventures and may fit better a woman with high expectations. Set the bar high if you dare to wear Love as the rose petals will bring you to a turmoil of romances. If Love Eau de Parfum would suit perfectly Lily-Rose Depp, for instance, then Love Star would be Vanessa Paradis’ call.
To continue the love saga, Endless Love, a mystical blend of pomegranate, peach and apple blossom is the fruitiest fragrance by excellence. Yet beware as Endless Love is outrageously sexy. The ylang-ylang notes bring an utter touch of feminity, for a woman who knows how to obtain what she wants. Wear this scent for a professional meeting or a night out at the theatre with your new boyfriend.
Wearing Night will take you to new adventures, or sensations, throughout the night. Born in October 2013, this delicate yet striking and warm fragrance was created for the supermodels. Night boasts luscious apple, black plum, midnight orchids, and musk which give any woman the assurance to be utterly flamboyant and irreversibly sensual. Be provocative and dare to try Night, one night.
Depending on the temperature, your perfume may deteriorate. Therefore, it’ best to store your new Victoria Secret fragrance somewhere away from the light and keep it safe in a secure place. Avoid extreme heat and direct exposure to the sun as it may alter the aromas. The shelf life for any fragrance is about 3 to 5 years.
Do not blend different fragrances together. Use a light, fresh, and fruity fragrance for the summer and try another fragrance during winter. It takes time to find a signature scent. Our personality evolves and so our fragrance does. If you are still a teen or a young woman, wear lighter, fresher notes.
For a more mature woman looking for expression and sensuality, play with stronger aromatic notes. Ask guidance to your favorite beauty consultant, mom, or friends from time to time.
