Forever Red Exclusively at Bath and Body Works

Forever Red Exclusively at Bath & Body Works

I have received a sample of the fragrance Forever Red Exclusively at Bath & Body Works complimentary to test through Influenster’s VoxBox program.  To learn more about the program, visit  If you would like to join, I have 3 invites left so leave a comment and I will invite you to join!

Bath & Body Works’ most luxurious longest lasting fragrance, Forever Red, blends opulent notes of fiery red pomegranate and delicate peche de vigne, a rare and fleeting French peach. Soft petals of red osmanthus give way to notes of addictive velvety marshmallow and a surprising finale of rich vanilla rum that leaves an unforgettable impression.

Forever Red is available in:
Eau du Parfum
Fine Fragrance Mist
Rollerball & Lip Wand Duo
Shower Gel
Body Lotion
Triple Moisture Body Cream
Shimmer Mist
Golden Sugar Scrub

What I think: This is a really sweet fragrance.  The pomegranate is pronounced, but instead of a bit of a tartness that pomegranate brings, the peach and other notes make it super sweet.

This is a fragrance that I would not usually wear because I like fresher notes, but it is perfect for the girl who loves sweet, fruity scents!

Where to Buy: You can find Bath and Body Works products at a registered retail store near you or online at!
