The Victoria's Secret AMBER ROMANCE Hydrating Body Lotion comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a Golden Cap that has a push down kind of dispenser with a small mouthed opening that dispenses a controlled amount of product. The bottle is quite large so not the easiest to travel around with.
The Lotion has slightly thick consistency which is somewhere between a body lotion and a body butter and is perfect for the transition months between autumn to winter. The consistency is medium dense and it allows for the product to spread easily on the skin. This body lotion is perfect for those with Normal to Oily skin but not very great if you have super dry skin.
The AMBER ROMANCE Body Lotion has an enchanting fragrance of warm Vanilla infused with rich notes of winter cherry and Sandalwood, some hints of Amber , some musky undertones and sweet scent of English Cream(read milk and sugar).... Personally, this is exactly the kind of scents I love during winters. It fills up your senses with warm fuzziness and en-wraps your aura with lingering aromas for up to 7-8 hours and more.
The hydration that it provides is quite long lasting without any oiliness or greasiness and that is the reason I always end up over applying this one. It gets absorbed in the skin super quick and keeps your body nourished and supple feeling for long hours. Don't expect this to be as hydrating or lasting as probably a body Butter!!
Some may feel it is a very mature scent and I wouldn't quite disagree. It is exactly a very lady like scent, and young girls might not be able to associate themselves with it.
Overall, if you love indulging in body care products, this is one body lotion you shouldn't miss. It is mostly on offer on the Victoria's Secret website (3 for $25 or 5 for $30). On Indian shopping websites these are exorbitantly priced so it doesn't quite make sense. I got mine from Malaysia Duty free and this cost me $42 for 3 lotions which is anyway better than paying Rs 1500 for one bottle. The lotion has a rich warm scent that stays on for very long hours and it locks the moisture inside your skin for much longer than the scent. The packaging is luxurious and so is the scent and feel.
