From the Guilty Pleasure Files...Victoria's Secret Luscious Kisses

Luscious Kisses is one of the latest offerings in the ever-popular Secret Garden collection at Victoria's Secret. I spotted it while perusing the semi-annual sale, and it instantly transported me back to a simpler, more carefree time.


And not because this fragrance smells "kiddie," but because it smells like...doll heads.

Yes, doll heads. Or the dolls themselves, in their entirety. Or play food, if you prefer. I had a set of play Dunkin Donuts that smelled quite like Luscious Kisses. You know that smell, don't you? Slightly sweet, almost coconutty?

Friends, this is not a bad thing. For nostalgia alone, Luscious Kisses can't be beat. And it does have some recognizable notes of valencia orange and coconut that elevate it a bit, though it is certainly no Serge Lutens masterpiece parfum.

I'm liking it after a pre-bedtime shower; it's comforting and soft. My picks are the Ultra-Moisturizing Hand and Body Cream and the Refreshing Body Mist.

So go ahead, pick some up, and stash it in the drawer where you keep your old bottle of GAP Heaven or Grass, and that secret bottle of Love's Baby Soft that you just have to sniff every once in while.
