Bath and Body Works - Charmed Life Review

"Charmed Life." Sounds delightful doesn't it? Not quite my opinion.

I rarely find a scent from Bath and Body Works (BaBW) that I don't like. Before Charmed Life, the only scent I didn't like was "Moonlight Path." I wasn't too surprised that I didn't like this scent as it is similar to Moonlight Path. 

Of course the price varies depending on what item you purchase. The specific scent has been on super sale for a while now. Price according to website: (Price and items vary per store. Please check your local store to see what they have in stock.)
On the website they don't even sell the fragrance spray or full-sized shower gel. I think they may be discontinuing it? 
3/10 before sale prices (when not on sale). I feel products from BaBW are too expensive at full price considering all great sales they have.

I happen to think the packaging is quite cute. There are bows, shopping bags, rings, etc. I think it really fits well with the name, and is a nice selling point. The shade blue is a big aspect of this collection;. it shows up a lot. Whether a lotion, fragrance spray, etc. you can remove the product from container with ease. 

BaBW describes Charmed Life as " a positively sexy blend of juicy guava, sparkling pear and creamy vanilla musk, inspired by taking chances, having fun and savoring life's fabulous moments"

I don't think that the description is very accurate; when I smell the scent the fruit is an under note, whereas the description makes it seem very fruity. More or less, I smell a baby powder kind of scent.

Have you ever seen/smelled a "powder" scent deodorant? That's what this smells like to me, but with very light fruity hints. 

Don't get me wrong; I know many would like this kind of scent. Personally, I prefer not to smell like baby powder, but others may find it a very flattering scent.

I can always trust BaBW as far as the quality of the product goes, and this scent is no different. The smell lingers for at least 4-5 hours. 

Do I recommend it? -
Well, when it comes to perfume, scented lotion, and other scented products, it's hard to really take someones word for something. If you don't like the "powdery" kind of scent, don't buy it. If you do...then check it out. I would always recommend before buying to go to the store, and try it on, as it can smell different depending on who wears it.

Overall I give this scent a 5/10. It's not horrible, but not something I would necessarily wear.
