  • LARA10/07/2010

    Really strong and sexy... my professor kept hitting on me all semester while I wore this.

  • CICELY05/21/2009

    By far one of the best frangrances they ever had. I miss it and wish they would bring it back. Maybe if they knew how popular it really is. We can hope anyway. I emailed the company directly and they said they were very glad I liked the fragrance but unfortunately it would not be available but good luck with that.

  • SARA10/16/2008

    For all of you that love this perfume like myself, wait till semi-annual after Christmas, this perfume is usually only brought back for their sales. Also, this perfume goes for 75% off!!!! Keep checking at Victoria Secret or asking the store associates, they do carry it when their sale starts....sometime the beginning of January.

  • ADINA NEDELCU10/14/2008

    For those of you who have down rated this product, have you ever thought it might just be your body scent you are smelling? Everytime I wear it, I have nothing but compliments from everyone! The best!

  • MAJA09/07/2008

    I LOVE THIS PARFUME AND I CAN`T STOP SMELLING MYSELF.PLEASE CONTINUE SELLING THIS PRODUCT....I HOPE SOMEBODY READS THIS MESSAGE....

  • VERA06/24/2008

    A friend of mine recently stocked up on this scent. It's not a bad scent, and you'll like it the first spray or two. However, no more than that because it's very heavy and the dry down is very intense. My friend likes to practically bathe in it and it's sweetness (almost blueberry smell) will completely take you over. Good in small doses.

  • PRIYA04/08/2008

    it's a delicious fuity floral fragrance.my husband loves it and invariably asks me every time i wear it!...i love it too! makes a basic,bold statement :-D

  • REBECCA11/11/2007

    If you want this perfume back, you need to email or contact the actual company who makes it. Not an online site who just sells it. Once it's gone, it's gone. I still have a tiny purse spray, and only wear it sometimes. If you want an alternative though, try fun festive cranberry from bath and body works or Prada original perfume.

  • CANDY11/11/2007

    The sweetness is what ruins it for me. This fragrance has potential. I see where it wants to go, but it doesn't get there for me.

  • SAUNDRA11/09/2007

    this has become my signature perfume. I was so heart broken when I found out vs was no longer going to have it I like that the scent lasts forever and don't waste your money on desire it doesn't last 30min.you have to use more.I can't believe they put it in and put BI out.I have worn BI for 3years and now I'm forced to change.cryin shame!

  • SEHAM GHALY11/07/2007

    I admire this fragance and get so many compliments when I put it. I am very upset to hear that it will be discontinued. I hope to found your products in Egypt.

  • DONNA SMITH. 10/30/2007

    This is my favorite perfume please do not discontinue this one I am always getting complements with this one from men and women. please reconsider thanks!

  • NURSE RIKKI10/21/2007

    This scent is exotic; subtle, yet intoxicating, earthy and enticing. It's sex in a bottle. To lose this one would be a crying shame. (Stock up while you can.)

  • PAT DOUTHAT10/16/2007

    I love this cologne and get so many compliments when I wear it. I am very upset that it will be discontinued. Please reconsider!

  • JANET09/25/2007

    I really love this fragrance. I was so disappointed when I was told it was being discontinue.

  • STEPHANIE09/25/2007

    This is the best! I have never received so many compliments! This one deserves a huge come back Victoria!

  • TINA 09/25/2007

    I love it . and can"t live with out it everyone who goes around me asked me what I have on. and I tell them. they LOVE it too.please don"t ever go out of stock. I try to bye one every mouth. it is very clean smelling perfum.

  • REBECCA09/06/2007

    I didn't know what to think about this when it came out. Then several months later Prada came out, and I instantly thought it smelled like basic instinct! This is a rich, deep, darkly intense floral. Not overwhelming. It's lacking that harsh note of Prada. It's smoother, and alot cheaper. I have a tiny tiny bottle, but that's enough for me.

  • BARBARA W08/31/2007

    Just received my bottle and I'm in love with it. Full-bodied, rich and complex, perfect for the upcoming fall season. Adding another star!

  • D S NELSON07/28/2007

    That fragrance is so awesome people love it,love it, and love it please please bring it back.

  • BARBARA W07/23/2007

    I smelled this on a patient today, and it was really nice - dark, rich, and mysterious. I haven't tried it on my skin yet, but I'm going to search out a sample.

  • WIZARD OF AHHHHS07/20/2007

    For those you who ADORE and can't live without this, try Agent Provocateur! It has very similar notes -- to the point that when I tried my sample, my first thought was, "This smells exactly like Basic Instinct!" Very very good and may help you get the fix you need! Try it and let me know what you think! Toodles.

  • DIANNE06/27/2007

    I wrote the Victorias Secret company. If we want it back call and email for them to produce it again. I love that fragrance.

  • LEE06/22/2007

    I work with the general public and I aways get a compliment everytime I wear it, from men and women, young and old, all different nationalities and all walks of life. Please bring it back, please, please

  • CHERYL06/12/2007

    Basic Instinct is wonderful it's all I wear bring it back!!I have several bottles saved,but it won't last long and I don't know what I'll do when it's gone!!!

  • MRS SANDY04/22/2007

    I agree this should not have been a discontinued Item. It has a long lasting smell. Different people would ask what I was wearing and I would tell them. But now that it is no longer an item to be sold at Victoria Secrets, My husband no longer can suprise me with a gift that that I loved so much.

  • MS. RAYNETTA04/09/2007

    I love the fragrance, unfortunately I can't find it anywhere in Chicago. I would love to purchase a bottle or two on-line if possible! p.s. perfume fanatic!!!

  • SUSAN03/29/2007

    I have a ton of the original VS fragence, lotion, shower gel, etc that I have stored in my refrigerator since they stopped selling it. You can email me at brokenmranch1@comcast.net if you want some.

  • ROXANN02/28/2007

    when I was passing by VS in the mall a scent caught my attention. I sprayed the sample and went by way in the mall. the scent was so beautiful I could smell it and on my way back out I had to stop and buy it. I've been using it ever since. My neice says I smell like an old lady, but, hey, I've gotten compliments from men who say I smell nice. Just kind find it at the VS store anymore that's why I'm onlilne. I love it!

  • GREENEYEBETTY@YAHOOOM02/13/2007

    I GET SO ANGERY BECAUSE EVERYTIME I START USEING ONE OF THEIRE NEW PERFUMES,WHICH I CAN'T USE A LOT OF THEM BECAUSE OF MIGRAINES, THEY DISCONTINUE THEM EVERYTIME,WITH EVERYONE I CHOOSE. IM ABOUT TO CANCEL MY DARN V.S. CARD!!!! SOOOOOO TIRED OF THEM DOING THIS. I HOPE TO CONTINUE TO GET THIS ITEM FROM YOU THOUGH,I HOPE FOR A LONG TIME!!! CAN U GET THE LOTION TOO??? WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A LOT OF IT TOO!!!! IS THERE ANYONE WHO CAN FIND V.SECRET FRAGRENCE? THEY MADE IT ABOUT 6YRS. AGO AND IT WAS EVEN BETTER THAN THIS ONE,BUT THEY STOPED IT TOO!!! THANKS,SOOOO HAPPY TO FIND THIS PERFUME AGAIN!!!

  • TIKA02/05/2007

    Basic instinct is wonderful. This should not have been discontinued. I get compliments constantly. Love it Love it Love it.

  • SONJA02/02/2007

    Please resume manufacturing this perfume. Had I known it was being discontinued I would have bought more. this is the only perfume that I constantly get compliments on. I love it. Please Victoria Secret to reconsider.

  • NASTASSIA01/26/2007

    This is one of the heaviest scents I've ever tried, and I didn't like this one. It was so strong, I had a headache, and almost threw up. No perfume is supposed to do that! But what works for one person doesn't work for another, and I know that this scent doesn't work for, or with, me.

  • DEANA01/19/2007

    SMELLS GREAT MORE PEOPLE ASK WHAT I WAS WEEARING

  • DEBBIE 01/17/2007

    Love this stuff!I never wore perfume untill I found this one and always get compliments on it.I was devistated when I found out it was discontinued!Do we need a petiton to bring it back!?

  • DEBRA12/21/2006

    I love this perfume. I did not know it was not going to be available any longer. Please bring it back.

  • ANNE12/14/2006

    I TRUELY LOVE THE FRAGRANCE, HAD I KNOWN IT WAS GOING AWAY I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT IN BULK

  • GERTIE R.12/08/2006

    I THINK THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST SCENTS THAT A WOMAN CAN PUT ON. I WISH THEY WOULD BRING IT BACK. I CAN TELL WHEN SOMEONE IS WEARING IT. ITS IN A CLASS BY ITSELF. THANKS VS FOR BASIC INSTINCT...

  • BRANDY12/04/2006

    I was so unpleased by Vic when they launched this one. It was too strong! Very heavy and oh so reminiscent of stella/prada/versace woman! Just not as good of a copy cat. Stick to what you know VIC. Sandlewood and powder! Luckily they redeemed themselves w/Desire and Lil Sexy Thing.....

  • MARY ANN11/29/2006

    i am very particular about my perfumes, and basic instinct is amazing. i hope that the victoria,s secret stores would bring this scent back. its intoxicating.

  • MARGIE SIGLER10/09/2006

    Let me know when this item is in stock. I use it all the time and I'm getting low.

  • SAMMY10/08/2006

    I really admire victoria secret's basic instinct perfume. It is so heavinly. I usually use it with the arabian dark oud. I put the oil first on my pulse points and then spray this luxurious perfume. Woww it smells great and empowering. This secret has proved to be so seductive to both men and women. Try!

  • BEKKA11/27/2005

    You made me laugh out loud! The girl I know (that I dislike, & NOT just because of her poor taste in fragrance), douses herself in this & IS indeed, a wino. I couldn't have put in better myself. There is definitely a sinister connection between Basic Instinct & winos. I mean, if anyone wants to smell like wine, buy a cheap bottle of chianti and shower with it or something. C'mon people, there's a whole world of fragrances out there, & not just@ Victoria's Secret stores. You rock DonnaRae, you made my day! Thanx.

  • DONNARAE11/22/2005

    This makes you smell like a wino. Are you wearing this or just drinking cheap wine?

  • REBECCA11/19/2005

    At first I was repulsed by this, but then I smelled it again and now for winter it's ok. Smells exactly (almost) like Prada. I have Dior Addict, but sometimes cannot bear it. It's overwhelming with even a small spray...I smell something musty in it, that's not patchouli. Maybe the sandalwood...women are so used to the basic popular scents, that this can be extreme to them. Just a caution

  • FREDERIQUE11/15/2005

    This one is way too powerful! It gave me an nstant headache. How come most of Victoria's Secret fragrances smell weird and cheap?! They certainly aren't inexpensive.

  • REBEKKAH11/14/2005

    THIS ONE IS SO OVERWHELMINGLY STRONG. WHEW! IT SMELLS LIKE BAD INCENSE, PATCHOULI, & SANDALWOOD (WHICH CAN SMELL GREAT WHEN MIXED IN PROPER RATIOS WITH OTHER COMPLIMENTARY INGREDIENTS) THIS SCENT IS CHEAPLY OFFENSIVE, LOUD & OBVIOUSLY NOT DESIGNED BY A MASTER CHEMIST OR PERFUMER. SORRY, CASSIE, BUT JUST BECAUSE A FRAGRANCE COMES FROM A LINGERIE CHAIN, DOESN'T MEAN IT SMELLS SEXY. THERE ARE MANY ORIENTAL-TYPE PERFUMES IN EXISTENCE THAT ARE TRUE MASTERPIECES , AND THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT ONE OF THEM. IF ANYONE THINKS THIS IS A QUALITY FRAGRANCE, THEY MUST NEVER HAVE SMELLED ANYTHING BY CHRISTIAN DIOR, OR ELSE THEY'D WEAR "ADDICT" INSTEAD.

  • BRITTNEE09/20/2005

    Very unique fragrance. I smelled it on someone and had to ask them what fragrance they had on because I just had to know. It lasts a long time and the bottle is absolutely gorgeous. I love the dark purple color and "diamond" lid. It just looks sexy.

  • ALLISON R.09/12/2005

    I can't wear this one. Most V.S. scents I like, but this is just so darn strong. It's almost offensive.

  • MARLA07/26/2005

    I like the scent, its ok, sorta different but there must be pheremones or something in it because when I wear it I can barely make it where i'm going without men complimenting me on it and the hitting on me. This can be a good and bad thing good cause hey men hitting on you bad cause men hitting on you constantly non stop, different kinds, no matter where you are or what your doing. you've been warned.

  • KELLY06/24/2005

    A girlfiend of mine wears this all the time and I love the way it smells on her. I have never tried it on myself, but am thinking of getting a small bottle. Victoria Secret makes some lovely fragrances. Much better then those sold in high end dept. stores.

  • LIZZIE06/20/2005

    i didn't expect to like this fragrance...received it as a gift, and i found that it kind of grew on me. the fruity notes are very prominent...voluptuous, sweet, dark, elegant. the color of the bottle exemplifies the character of the fragrance very well, i think. a little too serious for me most of the time, but delicious all the same. great staying power.

  • JOY06/18/2005

    this perfume smells amazing. i always get tons of compliments on it. i would definitely recommend it if you liked daring scents.

  • LISA05/31/2005

    I love this fragrance. I couldn't quite place what it smelled like when I first tried it. The floral component is somewhat similar to what is in Giorgio, but the port wine and fruits and the base give it a deeper, sultrier, "evening" character. This is a very sexy fragrance and it's simply gorgeous on me. On second testing I had to use my VS gift certificate, and get it! I like that it's not another hoh-hum fruity floral. This one is different and I don't think it smells like Prada or Narciso Rodriguez, either. It's fairly original in my book, and I have quite a few fragrances.

  • REBECCA04/17/2005

    hmm, this is just bad to me. Can't believe they took heavenly off of here to put this on the site! Heavenly is the best vs seller. I think this is a stronger version of prada, they do smell similar. I cannot stand to wear this though, and I like a bolder perfume sometimes. Smells like you poured wine and patchouli all over...

  • PERFUME ADDICT04/02/2005

    Great ,different

  • MZSMILEY03/27/2005

    ....i'm not very fond of the scent. a little too musky for me i suppose. when i first saw the bottle, i really hoped the scent was just as pretty....oh well. i bought a small bottle of it anyway though. nice decoration ; )

  • PERFUMEADDICT03/22/2005

    I love this fragrance because it smells very unique. It is definitely bold, daring and sexy. It is a strong scent that needs to develop and the staying power is all day. The lotion and shower gel are also nice. Sometimes I use just those and I still can smell myself hours later.

  • LOUISE03/19/2005

    It's not my favorite. I notice it smells quite a bit like Prada, for those who haven't smelled Basic Instinct yet.

  • KAREN03/14/2005

    i dont usually like patchouli but in this it's great. The first time I smelled it I was like this sorta smells like on old lady in a way, but then i decided i liked it at the same time, and its actually one of the scents that I own that is "sexy" kinda musky, nice.

  • MADELINE HUTCHINS02/22/2005

    One of my girl friends was wearing a scent late last year that I found different...really nice. Naturally, I had to ask what it was. She told me, in her I know I smell good little voice, "Basic Innnnnstinct, don't I smell good, girl!?" "My husband thought I did..." It is indeed a surprisingly wonderful fragrance. Hate to be a copy cat since we often hang out together. BUT....

  • HENNIE01/27/2005

    This fragrence is sexily subtle. The warm vanilla orchid makes it smell so yummy, and the apricot and port plum wine give a fruity balance. You will smell lavish in this one.

  • LYNN01/24/2005

    This is a wonderful, long lasting fragrance. You will receive many complements on this one. Beautiful bottle as well!

  • MINNIE MOUSE01/13/2005

    I am in love with this fragrance!! I can't even describe it (which is a first) but I'll try anyhow. It's very sensual and spicy. Definately not trendy. It has more of a grown up, sophisticated feel. Sexy. It reminds me a little of Coco Chanel but I think it's much better because it's softer. And I've never had so many compliments......
