This is such a great dupe to the Bum Bum cream. The fragrance hits all the same notes, but it is not as potent as the original cream nor as thick obviously. Still, this is a great way to indulge in the fragrance without having to break the bank all the time to buy the Sol de Janeiro. Still gonna buy the Sol de Janeiro but this will be nice in between jars. Since the smell fades (and after reading y'alls reviews I went and bought the whole set), I like to use a few spritzes of the body mist after the lotion to boost the effect and staying power.
I purchased this entire line (body wash, body lotion, body spray) based solely on the rave reviews. When they arrived today, I was SO excited! Upon opening the box and smelling them, I was SO disappointed! I guess I had an idea of what I thought they should/would smell like and they don't smell anything like I had expected/hoped. They have a vanilla scent. And it's weak. I was expecting more of summer/tanning lotion/sun-kissed scent. Definitely returning.

This lotion (and spray and body wash) smells EXACLTY like the sol de janieo bum bum cream. It's like a vanilla coconutty amazingness. Feels light and moisturizing. But it's the scent that won me over to the scent line.

This lotion is great after my shower.

Extremely similar in smell to Sol de Janiero Bum Bum Cream. It's not as thick or lasting, but the smell is lovely. Not overpowering or intense, but nice and subtle.

I rubbed this into my skin and was great with a DUPE for the Bum Bum cream which I adore...I did not read reviews before ordering this online...It just looked interesting so I ordered the complete set...Glad I did because this is a deal!
The scent lingers on your skin...Very pleasing...Does not smell "cheap" .

I loved Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream and I heard this was a decent imitation. It kind of is, but not... it smells good, but it's not what I would call a "dupe."
The only real disappointment, though, is that it's not hydrating at all. It absorbs quickly, which is nice, but then 5 minutes later, I feel like I need to apply more. In my opinion, old school Palmer's is still the best.
yesi from texas
such a cozy light smell, its very watery but it does absorb into your skin fast and leaves it softish. the smell is very shea/coco butter and the scent lasts about 2 hours which is very nice for the price. its not bad but not great. i do say its good!
Stjahh from Valrico,Fl
This was suggested to me as a dupe for the Sol de Janeiro Bum bum cream so I had to try it! It is a great dupe, at a great price! I just wish the scent was a bit stronger. I layer the body wash, lotion, and body spray for a great experience at a great price!
Nenny from Puerto Rico
This is almost the exact same scent! I have both and I'm so glad I decided to try it cause it's smells almost exactly the same and it's very moisturizing. Got the splash as well and it smells heavenly! ❤️

This lotion is the equivalent of the drugstore designer imposters. While it does smell like bum bum cream it's not nearly as rich or as deep. The fragrance doesn't linger long at all, and definitely is not as hydrating as it's more expensive counterpart. Much like a lot of people I am ballin on a budget right now so I decided to buy this instead of the more expensive stuff. I have been layering this on top of an Aveeno fragrance free lotion to attempt to give my skin the hydration it needs but still omit the aroma I miss from the bum bum cream. It will do for now. But I will return to my tried and true when things return to normal.
Laura from Helena, Alabama
This has a softer scent than the bum bum cream to me. It's very nice smelling though, and I believe more moisturizing.
philliesphan12 from Georgia
Smell is slightly different and definitely less strong. It is still a very pleasant smell, just not quite the same. It is also a bit more of a liquid consistency than the Bum Bum cream.
JL08 from NH
I bought this because it was supposedly a dupe for Bum Bum cream. It smells nice, but it's not a dupe. It does pair nicely with my Brazilian crush body spray from Sol de Janeiro. The smell is different though.
America from USA
I was looking for a more affordable option and the reviews were accurate. While the scent is less intense, it does smell like it. The lotion and body wash smell spot on. The body spray not so much.
Erin from Pennsylvania
Well holy cow, I feel a little stupid for not finding this sooner. I am very picky with scents and I am extremely sensative to them. I can spot a fake from a mile away, but this has me in awe. It is EXACTLY like Bum Bum, but I got the mist, body wash and the lotion on here for half the price as one jar of BumBum. I am thrilled! Thank you Ulta ♡
Kate M from Missouri
I ordered this based off the reviews saying it smelt like the original bum bum cream-but better and let me tell you... spot on. I like to layer my scents and have received more compliments on my "perfume" in the past week than I have in months ! I will def be repurchasing and trying another scent based on how long this one lasts through out the day.
Smthr from US
This got really great reviews, so maybe I was expecting more. This does smell superficially like a subdued Bum Bum, but it doesn't have Bum Bum's deep, sophisticated, delicious scent. It's a slightly artificial scent. I can barely smell it, and it goes away quickly.
The lotion is very hydrating, with a runny and slightly gel-like feel. I'm not too crazy about the uninspired look of the bottle/label design and the boring yellow color of the lotion. The aesthetics of this isn't that great.

I ordered this one because I read it smelled like the bum bum cream. I must say they smell similar but I like this one even more. It smells so warm and summer like. When I put it on the evening after showering, I can still smell the next morning on me when I wake up. It's more watery though than the bum bum cream but that's fine. I hope they will have the shower gel and body mist back in stock soon.
Amanda from Indiana
I use this with the body mist of the same scent. It makes the scent last much longer. This lotion smells even better than the body mist. The smell sticks around for quite awhile but isn't too overwhelming. It is super moisturizing and feels great on my skin. I have sensitive skin and often lotions break me out but I do not have that problem with this lotion. I am on my second bottle and will continue to purchase as long as it's sold. In the past I haven't liked the scents of the Ulta body mists and lotions but this blew me away. It smells summery but not juvenile. It is sexy but not too much for every day wear. I always get compliments when I wear this. Please don't discontinue this Ulta!

If you like or are curious about the scent of the bum bum cream scent everyone talks about this is a cheaper dupe and smells almost identical except the original is a richer version...maybe more gourmand notes. Otherwise smells same
Autumnal1979 from ABQ, NM
I have both this and the bum bum. i have smelled them side by side ( although not too closely together to let the scents mix) and it really is similar to the bum bum. the difference to me is that while the ulta is awesome, bum bum is ever so slightly warmer/spicier and ulta is slightly more fruity. Still very very close.
Valkyrie from Wi
Bought the whole set (body wash, spray, and lotion) because everyone claimed this smelled just like bum bum but more subdued. While it smells okay, it definitely doesn't have that fresh beach smell like bum bum, think more of a cheap alcohol and vanilla scent. Works like a lotion should, scent only lasts a short while, and definitely not the scent everyone hypes it up to be.
Kaitlyn from Indiana
As others have said, this lotion is a great dupe for the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream's scent. It definitely is a different texture and is just your standard body lotion in terms of moisturization, but the price is right here (particularly if you get it during an Ulta product sale and pair it with the body spray--- the body wash is nothing special).

Nikki from Wisconsin
After reading the reviews I was a bit skeptical but I have the bum bum cream and I actually like this better! The smell isn't as strong, but it's just the right amount. Will definitely be buying more of this and the spray!
Karla from Oklahoma City
Exact smell of the Brazilian brand, better price!
