Victoria by Victoria's Secret c1989

Victoria by Victoria's Secret; launched in 1989.

Fragrance Composition:

Elle, 1989:
"This month, Victoria's Secret debuts Victoria, a frankly romantic scent with nostalgic notes of Bulgarian rose and raspberry blended with patchouli and sandalwood. The bottle (below) was inspired by the architecture of 17th-century England."

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: bergamot,  raspberry
  • Middle notes: jasmine, lilac, and Bulgarian rose
  • Base notes: vanilla, patchouli, oak moss, sandalwood, and patchouli

Originally the Victoria Bath Collection only included the Perfumed Bath & Body Shampoo and Perfumed Bubble Bath.

In 1995, the Victoria Bath Collection was expanded to include the following: Cleansing Body Buffer (an exfoliator), Dry Oil Spray (with nourishing Vitamin E, chamomile and watercress), and All-Over Body Mist (a light spray mist).
