Dallas is known for our bevy of blondes, yet we’re always welcoming new additions to town like Victoria’s Secret beauties: Candice Swanepole and Erin Heatherton. The lithe supermodels visited Northpark Mall to promote the debut of Victoria’s Secret new fragrance, Bombshell, an aromatic and flirtatious mix of fruity and floral notes. Dallas composed the last stop on their four-city media tour made of Los Angeles, New York, and Miami.
To celebrate the launch, the Northpark store was decked out in a plethora of their signature Victoria’s Secret pink stripes and ever-so-matching peonies that accented the BOMBSHELL fragrance. DJ Locklear spun some top beats to amp up the crowd while onlookers watched the VS Makeup Supermodel Artist Team do their makeover magic on attendees. Shoppers that indulged in VS purchases over $40 received special BOMBSHELL t-shirts and the opportunity to meet-and-greet autograph session with the VS Angels: Candice and Erin. To really encompass the whole supermodel BOMBSHELL experience, a famed fashion photographer was also on-hand snapping cover portraits of guests for their own keepsake photo. The energy and enthusiasm of all the attendees, employees, and Angels was truly electrifying and contagious. Ten lucky winners were brimming with excitement for their personalized Angel experience, one of which could not stop squealing with schoolgirl excitement. I must say, I do indeed I have a major girl crush on both Candice and Erin after the opportunity of meeting and interviewing the both of them.
BOMBSHELL is described as a fruity, floral and aromatic fragrance collection includes notes purple passion fruit, Moscato d’Asti Tuscan grapes, Shangri-la yellow peonies and Vanilla Orchid that combine with the stunning aroma of Italian Sunstruck Pine for a sexy, glamorous and ultra-feminine scent. The collection includes Eau De Parfum, Body Mist, Body Lotion and Luminous Body Powder ($20-$45), available now at Victoria’s Secret stores nationwide and online at VictoriasSecret.com.
Upon review of the new scent, BOMBSHELL reminds me of many limited edition Escada fragrances I had fallen in love with over the years (i.e. Sexy Grafitti, Sentiment, Tropical Punch). Reminiscent of all my past favorites, this scent is cleaner, yet with a complexity from the Italian Pine note. The fragrance wears down well with my chemistry and has long-lasting wear to my surprise. If you’re in search of florals and bouquets with a touch of fruitiness that wears down to a sexy earthiness with an all around fresh and clean smell, then BOMBSHELL is right on the money. Head to your closest Victoria’s Secret and give it a spritz, channel your inner bombshell babe, and report back!
