Better Than the First
Tested this today at Kohls. I was super excited when I saw this sitting there and I went straight for it. A few spritzes on my wrist and.... back on the shelf it went. For now. I will end up buying a bottle eventually.
It's a very nice aquatic floral with a touch of saltiness sitting on a woody base. It's still clean smelling like Jennifer's first fragrance, but this one is easier to wear. It's more interesting as well. I got a strong "hairspray" vibe from the first and this one lacks that. Thank goodness.
I sprayed two sprays, one on each wrist about four hours ago and I can still smell it on my skin. It is pretty close to the skin, but it's still there!! Sillage in the beginning was moderate.
All in all I think Jennifer did well with this one. Pretty blue bottle too!

Bonbon Unwrapped
Wearing this makes me want to grab a bag of sugar and dump it down my throat while rolling around in caramel. This is a super duper sweet concoction of a fragrance. Whoooo!

On my skin I get that distinctive Viktor&Rolf base with a blast of sweet caramel and orange citrus. It's not a "cleaner" type citrus, but more of a fresh glass of sweet orange juice packed with pulp. Just the way I like it! The peach doesn't really come out on my skin until later on in the dry down. Peach usually isn't a note I'm fond of, but here it's done really well. The sandalwood and amber peek through giving Bonbon a bit of warmth and depth.

I didn't mind paying the high price for this. To be honest, I have other perfumes that are in the same price range that don't hold a candle to this quality wise. Bonbon lasts for ages. I got a good 12 hours of STRONG scent, two sprays worth, and it stuck with me until I showered it off. You definitely need to like sweets though to make it worth it.

I find the bottle to be quite cute as well. It definitely sticks out in my collection. It's heavy and well made. Cute little bonbon bottle!

All in all I think this will appeal to the those who have a sweet tooth. Try it out with an open mind and don't set expectations. I think that's why some are so disappointed.
I'm really happy with it! Definitely a great buy!

Keeping it Short and Sweet
Perfect fragrance for a girly girl. Fresh, floral, beautiful. It's interesting to smell and has an innocent vibe to it. Won't offend anyone, but will draw people in. I absolutely ADORE this!

Brrrr that's Cold!
"WHOOOOOA" was my first thought when sniffing this on my wrist. Such an icy blast to the sinuses! Ah it smells so good though!! I love the fresh pine smell and the overall coolness to it. It's quite refreshing! The musk is nice and clean. Definitely reminds me of winter in the woods after a snowfall with icy winds blowing in your face!!

Summer Escape
This is one I love the more I wear it. I get a nice citrus burst in the beginning followed by smooth creamy tonka bean, florals, and ambergris. It's a bit sweet and musky, but not overly sweet. It definitely has a summer vibe to it.

I don't know if I'll be able to wear this in extreme heat as it may become a bit cloying, but I think it will be a nice one to spritz on in the summer evening when it starts to cool down.

Lasting power is pretty decent on me. Around 5-6 hours. Better than both the original Light Blue and Dreaming in Portofino. Sillage radiates at about 3 feet for the first hour and then it sits pretty close to the skin.

All in all, I'm glad I added this one to my collection!
