Victoria’s Secret Scandalous Perfume

Victoria’s Secret has some of the most gorgeous packaging on their fragrances, and Scandalous is no exception. As soon as I laid my eyes on this fabulous bottle, I knew I was going to love it. If I had more space in my room (and no kids with grabby hands), I would have my vanity in there, and I would cover it in Victoria’s Secret perfume bottles. It’s impossible not to feel chic when you use something so beautiful!

The glass is actually carved like this- it’s not just painted on. It’s very art deco era to me. The neck of this bottle swivels to reveal the part that allows the fragrance through when you squeeze the ball. But on to the important part, the fragrance itself! Scandalous has notes of black peony, raspberry liqueur, and praline. It definitely has a warm and cozy vibe and I am really getting the sweet praline notes the most, while still being able to smell a hint of the fruity raspberries. This is super delicious and decadent, and I can see just about anybody really loving this.

While I was testing this, I must have opened the whole neck, and at some point it got knocked over, and 90% of the fragrance leaked out. It seeped into a box of beauty samples that I have been working through for holiday posts, so it’s like my own personal room freshener! I was really bummed that this happened, although it’s my own fault, but it’s worth noting that it’s easy to accidentally unscrew the bottle top instead of just open/closing the neck to get the spigot open to spray. Keep that in mind and you’re golden! 

I may just have to replenish this bottle once I’m out because I’m loving it and I have barely any left! It’s a perfect wintery fragrance that reminds me of cozying up next to the fire, but I would totally wear it year round.

    I love the bottle, and it sounds like a fragrance it might like. I’m so sorry yours got spilled! I don’t like bad packaging designs where that can happen so easily.

    The bottle is awesome, the perfume smells wonderful. However – how do you get the stupid atomizer to work. I cannot get it unlocked!!!!!

      Did you see the writing on the metal? You have to twist it one way or the other.

    Thank you for your review. My girlfriend was having difficulty figuring out how to get the spray to work until your review gave us the scoop 😉

    I can’t get the scandalous spray to work. Did what the metal said to turn and only air puffs out and not the perfume

      So here’s what i figured out — it’s no time the pump (flower) you have to turn in the direction on the metal. You actually have to turn the metal and it opens the airway. Turn the metal to close and open.

    I agree, gorgeous bottle and amazing scent. The functionality is appalling. All 3 bottles I have had have failed in one way or another. Terrible customer service from Victoria Secret so far. Glad to see it’s not just my friends and I that have had this problem. Hopefully that fix the issues soon
