I love Victoria’s Secret Vanilla Lace Secret Garden fragrance and body products. You may have read about my sensitivity to fragrances and how this scent is ideal for me in Smell Scrumptious Not Stinky.

I got a $10 off purchase gift card from Victoria’s Secret in the mail.  I have more than enough uplifting bras so I planned to by beauty products instead.

Entering the Victoria’s Secret store I was dazzled by all the ultra feminine lingerie and beauty products. I debated whether to buy eyeshadow or lipstick but realized I’d get more bang for my buck if I stocked up on my favorite Vanilla Lace Products.

I only had one shower gel left and my body butter is just about empty.  With their already priced buy 7 for $35 I decided to restock my bath supplies.  I had a tough time choosing which products to get multiples of with my discount but it was a fun time choosing.

What did I buy? Here’s the list:

3 Exhilarating Body Washes

2 Rehydrating Body Lotions

1 Ultra Softening Body Butter

1 Refreshing Body Spray

1 Ultra Moisturizing Hand and Body Cream

Are you wondering why 8 products are listed? Well, when I went to pay the sales person mentioned with 7 you get an additional product free! That brings my beauty bargain up to 8 Secret Garden products.

I dithered over what to buy as number eight and settled on the Moisturizing Hand and Body Cream.  Now I think I should’ve picked another body wash but I’m happy with my selection. WOO HOO!

A total of eight Vanilla Lace products for only $25.00! (Sales tax added $2.19 to my total.) This comes out to about $3.13 per product when the prices usually range from $8.50 – $10.00 each! What a steal of a deal!

I love getting great deals on beauty products. Actually I love to get great deals on anything I buy: food, clothes, cosmetics, books, any product I need.  All to make my money stretch as far as possible.

Check out my cache of Vanilla Lace here along with the fab VS bag. Its so fun walking around doing the rest of my shopping with it dangling from my arm. Unfortunately all the products I bought made the bag unpleasantly heavy but well worth the effort to lug it back to my car. 🙂

Love Vanilla Lace & VS bag!


Why are you backing away?

Are you sensitive to scents like I am? I’m very selective of any fragrances I use. Anything too strong will give me a bad headache.  The majority of perfumes, lotions, body butters, etc. are too strongly scented for me.

I always wonder why it’s the cheapest, foulest smelling fragrances that some people decide to pickle themselves in when they bathe.

It’s like what? Did that only cost 10 cents a gallon so you bought a wine barrel size of it and have to marinate yourself in it daily?

You know what I mean…when you can smell someone’s stinky perfume coming down the hall…and want to grab an oxygen mask.  Phew! Crack open a window and turn on your desk fan.  Are they intending to repel anyone in a 5 mile radius?

Well, that will never happen when you use Victoria’s Secret’s Vanilla Lace. It’s sweet, subtle and dreamy.  I always feel happy with an extra bounce in my step when I wear it.  I feel deliciously flirty, fun and youthful like a sunny nothing but blue skies day.


Now my friends and even strangers tell me I smell good when I enter a room. I was buying a replacement ducky flashlight keychain – I’ve gone through 2 already – at a local shop when the owner asked me what I was wearing. She said I smelled good.  We had an involved conversation about fragrance and how hard it is to find one that smells good and is affordable.

Vanilla Lace is part of the Secret Garden collection and there seems to be a permanent multiple purchase discount going on in the store. I like the buy 5 for $30.00. It’s a great deal so I bought the body butter, perfume, body spray, hand lotion and body lotion. Now I do all that layering of products that beauty magazines and sales clerks tell you to do and it’s a pleasure.  I love smelling yummy.

Sunscreen would make it perfect

The only thing I would change is add sunscreen to the body lotion which smells even yummier than the perfume.

Victoria’s Secret must have fragrance is Vanilla Lace. Go out and get some. No one will confuse you with a skunk. 🙂
