The Perfect Summer Scent...Year Round!
Date:April 3, 2013
I bought the Bronze Goddness fragrance last year. Loved the scent, but was frustrated that it did not last longer through the day. So I was intrigued by the body oil formula, and decided to give it a try. I love it! The same warm, clean Bronze Goddess scent and even though its my first day of wearing it, I can tell that the staying power is much better with the body oil. The light sheen that comes with it is a plus. Feels and smells like I was just at the beach. Great product!
I really didn't enjoy the spray perfume of this item at all this season. The rich tones all seemed replaced by more bitter notes which was just NOT pleasant to me. THIS formulation actually seems a different scent altogether. And that, for me, is a GOOD thing. In this, I actually pick up the truer and cleaner notes of coconuts and just pure SUMMER without those confusing "filler" notes in the spray perfume. I guess having an oil base allows those richer notes from Bronze Goddess to come through more. It also definitely has excellent staying power, again because of the oil base. It isn't greasy at all like true suntan oil LOL. Very light and fresh. I like this bottle better too as far as appearances. I think this is still a bit on the "strong" side as fragrances go, and will be using this only at night. I am not aged 20 anymore and I think for the 30+ crowd this is a much better choice for scent and application. I don't give 5 stars because the bottom line fragrance still doesn't seem as well-made as earlier versions. It could still be enhanced with a higher quality, and I would like a tiny bit more of the sweeter notes I seem to recall from earlier.
If you like the smell of suntan oil on a summer day at the beach - you will love Bronze Goddess Body Oil Spray. With the lingering scent of coconut it puts you in the mood for playing in the sand and frolicking in the sun. The fine oil spray is light and the sillage is soft staying close to the skin. I hope EL will carry this every year.
I have been nursing a bottle of Azuree Soleil down to the last few precious drops. It's almost impossible to get now. So I ordered Bronze Goddess based on a comparison of the fragrance combinations. It arrived today. With my fingers crossed I sprayed a little on my hand. I'm over the moon! It's the same lovely summery scent. Thank you so much.
