Essence of Beauty Forever Paris Body Spray Review


Essence of Beauty is a CVS and CVS.com exclusive brand that products Bath&BodyWorks knock-offs. Today I'm reviewing Forever Paris, their version of my beloved Paris Amour. Essence of Beauty describes Forever Paris as a "light, delicate mist that offers lasting fragrance and soothes skin. This fruity floral brings to life Robert  Doisneau's famous photo of a kissing couple and features cassis, Parisian roses, French Vanilla, an amber". This body spray is available in two sizes 60ml/2 fl oz ($3) and 236ml/8 fl oz ($7). Essence of Beauty does not test on animals. 

 This body spray comes in a tall, oval shaped, clear plastic bottle topped with a spritz pump. The front label features the scent name and an abstract pink floral design. A full ingredient list can be found on the back label. Packaging is recyclable.
So, cassis, Parisian roses, French vanilla, and amber. Three of those notes are also included in Paris Amour. Forever Paris is a sweet floral scent that's strangely non-specific. I can't pick out any individual notes. Forever Paris is veru light, it smells like a watered down, simpler, less sophisticated Paris Amour...which I guess is the point. Longevity is extremely poor, I can only smell Forever Paris for about ten minutes after application, and then its just gone. This fragrance doesn't even last in my hair. 
[apparently this spray smells like this photo]
Essence of Beauty's Forever Paris Fine Fragrance Body Mist (even the name is a rip off) is a super disappointment. Its a poorly made knock off of an already cheap fragrance. Forever Paris smells nice, and it does smell similar to Paris Amour - just blander. Lasting power is pretty much non-existent. Save your money and spend $3 more on a travel size of Bath&BodyWorks Paris Amour Fine Fragrance Mist.
