What we say:
I had the privilege of being sent the gorgeous Bebe ‘Wishes and Dream’ fragrance to test and review. It’s a fragrance that I’ve never heard of before, and I was quite excited to receive it. The fragrance is packaged in a pretty gold coloured box and is decorated with what looks like raised up diamond shapes. The diamonds look like bubbles floating away and when you twist it into the light, it gives off a rainbow effect. This reinforces the whole idea of fantasy and wishes and dreams ties in with the idea nicely.

The box is easy to open up and inside is the beautifully bottled perfume. I love the oval shape of the bottle and how the lid is made up of an organic flowing line which loops to create the lid. The bottle is quite striking to look at. The diamond detail on the line is very pretty and gives the bottle another dimension and texture. The bottle fits perfectly into the palm of my hand and I think it is the perfect weight… it’s not too heavy but not too light either. I like that the bottle is easy to open up and use. It’s simple, without all the fuss so it’s user friendly. The most important thing though when trying a new fragrance is how it smells… When you first spray it onto your skin, it starts off quite sour but once dried, it’s really pleasant. Even the sourness though is still really appealing. It is quite strong, but not in a bad way. Right away I knew that I liked it and I’m sold on the scent. It’s really refreshing and vibrant. I can start to identify the different fruits and floral used immediately. There is definitely citrus fruits used and the scent awakens up your senses and makes me think of spring and summer times. It’s really fresh and crisp and I love how it warms up on your skin. It’s not too overpowering and once it dries, you can really start to enjoy it. Throughout the day, you get bursts of the fragrance so it lasts really long.

When I use it, I know that I smell good and wearing it gives me that added confidence. My hubby also really likes it and that’s always a good thing. It’s a fragrance that you are bound to get compliments on when wearing it. It is a beautiful fragrance and definitely is one of the better fragrances that I have tried lately. It’s flirty and fun and it works for me. I’m in my 20s and I think that it’s a good fit for me. I would recommend it to others as I think that it’s something rather special and I would definitely consider buying more. I give it a big thumbs up!

The structure of the bottle caught my eyes the first time I took the fragrance out of its box. The design is unique with a playful yet sophisticated look. The fact that the bottle is gold makes it look classy. The smell is a killer and I give the thumbs-up to bebe. I am able to wear it all day without making others feel ill, although they notice the good scent. There is a fresh blend of floral, exotic woods and fruity scents. Everything I wear matches with the scent of the fragrance. It lasts all day when I wear it. Talking about wishes and dreams, when I have it on it feels like everything is possible. I stay in a good mood and positive and I walk out to the world feeling younger. The fact that all these possibilities happen is a dream come true for me. For ladies out there, let’s make our wishes and dreams possible. I recommend this fragrance to all ladies.

When I first tried on Bebe Wishes and Dreams, I found it to be a bit strong for my personal taste, however after a few days of wearing it, it smelt softer and sweeter. The main fragrance notes that get my attention are a sweet musky spicyness with a slight floral whisper. I must say, I do feel slightly more extravagant when wearing it. The packaging is really pretty and the twisted cap with diamante finish is very unique and elegant. Although I could smell it, I did not get many people complimenting me on it as I usually do when wearing a perfume. I would recommend this product but I would say it’s more for winter than summer as it’s a warm smelling perfume.
