Embarrassed while trying to buy lingerie for his wife in a department store, Victoria’s Secret founder Roy Raymond, decided to open a store as a safe haven for men trying to purchase such items. His first store in 1977 had wood paneled walls and a Victorian era feel with a single row of paired sets mounted on the wall. Customers would consult with sales staff as to color and size after which their selections would be pulled from inventory rooms in the back. This concept was successful and more stores followed as well as a mail order service. Raymond sold his six stores and 42 page catalogue business in 1982 and Victoria’s Secret has expanded significantly since then to include more than 1,000 stores worldwide. Starting in 1995 Victoria’s Secret has held annual fashions shows which are broadcast on television featuring top models, or “Angels”, wearing their lingerie and clothing collections. It is usually a light, music and fantasy extravaganza that would feature special performers or acts and where the Victoria Secret “Runway Angels” would sport the company’s trademark wings.
Body care products and fragrances are also offered by Victoria Secret which started with a line of botanical themed body care products with their first perfume being introduced in the late 1980s. Popular perfumes include the clean smelling Body, the sensual Breathless, chic Ooh la la, the delicious and seductive Sexual Star. The Dream Angels, Secret Little Things and Very Sexy series have proven to be very popular and are updated with limited editions regularly.

Review of Rapture by Bree Anne Winters 22 Nov 2011
My old teacher in middle school used to ware it. Because she was my neighbor, I was also her kids babysitter too. One day I discovered the purfume in the bathroom and it answered my question without having to ask her what kind of purfume she wares. Finally I got the chance to buy some one year after Christmas. It was a gift set that was origionally $50, and I got it for $8 that day. What a deal. Only problem is my husband hates the smell of it. It's the only purfume I love, and yet he would rather have me waring CK1. Not my ideal smell. If given the chance to get it again, I would buy it and just tell my husband to deal with it.
Review of Rapture by Julie L 17 Aug 2011
Rapture to me is not over powering at all and it gets a little lighter as you wear it. It smells extremely sexy and I have used it for years and my nose is super sensitive.Now if you want a perfume that is strong then buy Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture that stuff will give u a headache and u can smell it before it even gets out of the box.I give Rapture about a 90 out of 100.
