How was your weekend? Mine included rain, rain, and more rain. Therefore, the plan to go to the beach was pretty much done. Also, the spilled oil in the Gulf area made it hard to enjoy the beach these days. I wonder how St. George Island is doing these days.
To substitute for the lack of chillaxing, I've put Victoria's Secret Island Escape sheer fragrance mist in heavy use these days. This is a part of Victoria's Secret's new Secret Moments body care line. It is a warm exotic sugary scent that reminds me so much of what's going on after a trip to the beach. This was billed as a "beachy coconut and sugar cane" scent and it does just that.

- Body Fantasies Vanilla Fantasy: for real, this one comes pretty close. Except for the slight coconut touch that Island Escape has, it smells almost the same to Vanilla Fantasy.
- Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods: this one has the warmth similar to Island Escape. If you dilute a bit of Twilight Woods to Vanilla Fantasy, you may come with something close to Island Escape. However, the mixture may be really sweet.

In conclusion, this is a nice summery scent that is not too cloying, annoying, or overly gourmand. Those who enjoy vanilla fragrances may find this scent enjoyable. At $12 USD a pop, it is decent for both price and lasting power. Also, it makes a good book deodorizer :)
