Reviews of Pink by Victoria's Secret

Light and bright in the bottle, and yet on my skin ..... too hard and sharp. Comes off as just another modern scent that seems unremarkable. I cannot imagine this standing the test of time and being worn by anyone 20 years from now.

Although I've branched out a bit from Pink (my new faves being Chanel No. 19 and Bulgari Black), I still wear it. It's very appropriate for warm days, or during dreary cold weather when you are dreaming of summer. I don't give a flip that it was meant for someone in her twenties, and I'm well past that age -- I feel pretty when I'm wearing it, and it nearly always lightens my mood. Also, of all the scents in my wardrobe, it's my husband's favorite; he thinks it's sexy.

The top notes are reminiscent of pink lemonade on the grass, and not necessarily the kind made from real lemons. However, I get freesia and peony very soon after the initial burst of "powdered pink lemonade," and this is probably my favorite part of the scent experience. The muguet note is barely there on my skin (a shame, because I love it), just a rounding out of the freshness of the other florals. Gradually this deepens to a lightly warm, woody drydown. Vanilla is listed, but it is very faint on me and I get mostly sandalwood and light musk, with a wash of the fading peony. A far better fragrance than the dreck VS is putting out these days...

I love this fragrance, whenever I wear it I would get alot of compliments and it worked very well with my body chemistry and lasted surprisingly long for a Victoria's Secret scent, it really does remind you of "Pink" when you put it on. It always put me in a good mood when I wore it, this was also a fragrance I wore when I was a little younger but would still wear now if I ever get around to buying another bottle.

I love this fragrance. It is certainly pink. Pink lemonade, pink grapefruit, pink flowers, pink, pink, pink! Fresh, fruity and very pretty. A nice Sunday afternoon fragrance, it's fresh, sparkly and happy. It's not a 100 year old classic fragrance for sure, but it's young, flirty and very feminine. A+ for VS. This is one of their best.

A cheery, bright, optimistic fragrance that comes off a bit brassy in the top part of the composition but dires down beautifully and has surprisingly good staying power. As with just about every Victoria's Secret scent - save perhaps two or three - Pink has that floral-fruity thing going on for the most part, and in this case we're talking *pink* flowers and *pink* fruits, particularly grapefruit (though I think that's more the mandarin - pink mandarin? - and bergamot coming through, as grapefruit's not actually used here.) The topnotes are a bit tart and a bit fresh but also a bit fake. It's not until you're well into the drydown that the scent loses its fakish edge and begins to smell like soft peonies and freesia, tempered by a jot of spicy warmth from the juniper. Eventually, the florals too fade and you're left with a dusky, lightly powdery scent that remains, subtly, for a remarkably long time. Two sprays on the same spot easily lasts up to eight hours, which is truly impressive for something relatively light to begin with and not all that intense.
