Forever Red Vanilla Rum by Bath and Body Works Review

Forever Red Vanilla Rum by Bath & Body Works          10ml EDP for $12 NZD from trademe

Notes: Rum, vanilla, mandarin, jasmine, gardenia, black lily, black currant, musk, apricot and cashmere wood.

I simply had to get this scent because it’s called Vanilla Rum and was so cheap. It opens as dark and rum-like, it’s beautiful and sultry. An instant evening and candlelit dinner scent. I get hints of mandarin and black currant before it settles into it’s, slightly powdered, heart. I get some soft and subtle florals – gardenia with a hint of lily.

It is, however, the base of rum soaked vanilla and musky cashmere that really stands out. It’s a very me base and smells of class. It is slightly sweet but in a dark and boozy way.

It’s alluring, mysterious, graceful and sophisticated. It’s slightly spicy and rather deep. It’s got soft to medium body-hugging sillage and lasts about four hours. It’s a very, very good Bath & Body Works scent that I’m angling to buy more of when I’m out. 7/10.
