Bath and Body Works Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette

RRP: $18.50 for 50ml

--What does the promo say?--
"Enjoy the light, alluring fragrance of spring's first blossoms, warmed with a hint of delicate musk.
* Sophisticated: fine fragrance inspired by your favorite Bath & Body Works scent
* Fragrance Top Notes: Dewy Watermelon, Green Lush Accord, Wisteria Petal, Red Plum
* Fragrance Mid Notes: Cherry Blossom, Sheer Freesia
* Fragrance Base Notes: Musk, Sandalwood, Heliotrope."

Pretty standard stuff - an elegant, modern squareish bottle, with minimal white writing on the front and a matt silver lid.

Spritz wherever required. As well as the wrists and near the ears, try putting some near your cleavage or spritzing lightly through your hair too.

A clear liquid that dries invisibly with no residue.

I don't find this scent especially fruity, but it evolves nicely from flowery to musky, and thus suits the young modern woman really well. It's not overpowering or too 'old' for the wearer. Best suits young women aged 18-30.

Not bad at all, especially for the price: should need reapplying approximately every 6-8 hours, which is a lot better than some more expensive fragrances.

--Value for money--
This is an affordable yet high quality scent, in a very 'now' fragrance and presented in a feminine yet modern way. A bargain buy to see you through the summer.
