The first thing to say about this fragrance is that its name is totally misleading. I find nothing "dark" or "shadowy" about this fragrance, and I find no "woods" whatsoever in this fragrance.
This review is for the body spray layered with the shower gel and body creme/lotion.
The listed Notes are as follow:
Top Notes: Mandarin Orange, Coconut, Wild Berries.
Heart Notes: Honeysuckle, Freesia, Frangipani, Mimosa, and Apricot.
Base Notes: Musk, Vanilla, Orris Root, Agar Wood, and Woodsy Notes.
Of the listed notes, I definitely perceive coconut, honeysuckle, (dark) berries, a bit of mimosa, and a bit of apricot. In the deep dry down, I get hints of musk and vanilla but no woods. I am unfamiliar with agar wood (oud), so I cannot say if I can smell it or not, but I would say I do not feel as though I can perceive any "woodsy" notes in Twilight Woods.
Twilight Woods is a nice fragrance. It sweet and fruity in a nice way. It is not cloying or syrupy. The scent is cuddly, and I think it is a fragrance that can easily be worn year round. It is not amongst my top three B&BW's fragrances, but I do like it quite well, and I find that on certain days and for certain circumstances, it is highly apropos. Anyone who likes coconut, honeysuckle, and dark berries would probably like Twilight Woods. It borders on the gourmand but never becomes so "foodie" to my nose that it feels edible.
Any time I purchase from B&BWs, I purchase the complete set of a fragrance, i.e. body spray with matching shower gel, body creme, and lotion. (I also purchase the EdT's on my three favourites: Sensual Amber; Cashmere Glow; and, Dark Kiss.)
Layering the shower gel and body creme/lotion with the body spray easily gives me 12 to 14 hours longevity which is better than my significantly more expensive fragrances including my Guerlains, Diors, and Chanels. If your skin and scalp lean toward the oily end of the spectrum, try using the shower gels as shampoos. The oil in your scalp will really lock in the fragrance and add to your overall fragrance projection, sillage, and longevity.
Overall Fragrance: 7/10
Projection: 9/10 for the first hour lessening somewhat thereafter.
Sillage: 91/0 for the first hour and lessening somewhat thereafter.
Longevity: 10/10 if layered with matching products; otherwise, 7/10 if liberally applied, which is still pretty darn good for a body spray.
Please just remember that Twilight Woods does not smell "woody," at least not to my nose.
