I realized I haven’t done a fragrance post in a while and thought it to be a good opportunity to write one. Today I am going to write about Body Mists.
Body mists are lighter scented, less concentrated formulas. They are used on your body to make it smell better after a shower or before going out or whenever you like it. I will count it as fragrance because they make you smell good and if bough with the same perfume, it can prolong the effect.
Victoria’s Secret is one of the most famous body mist makers followed by perfumes of the same smell for quite a number of them. I own two of their body mists which I’ve used quite a lot over two years and it quite amazing I still have a lot left. Purely because I have neglected them for quite a while as I got distracted by a lot of other options.
These were my first ever purchase from Victoria’s Secret when it opened in Muscat.
1- Lost in Fantasy – Brazilian orchid & kiwi
It was in blue packaging so it was quite obvious I’d check this one out first. Just one sniff and I was in love. It has a very tangy smell to it – like fresh flowers right from the garden – very refreshing for summer. The thing I liked the most was its name and that it had orchids in the background of the bottle which made it look really pretty. At RO 6 it was a must-have.
2- Sexy Little Things – Tease Body Mist
The only reason I got this body mist was because its perfume was quite expensive, RO 23, and I wasn’t ready to buy it on impulse. I bought the body mist for RO 12 instead to try on for a while just to be sure if I really wanted it or was it just for the packaging. The perfume was coming in a black and pink bottle and it had a pump (I am old school) which was so very attractive but it was a very tiny bottle. So to spend RO 23 on it didn’t seem quite sensible to me.
I kind of had a love-hate relationship with this body mist. It has a sharp smell. Some days I would love it crazy much and some days I would see myself going for Lost in Fantasy or some lighter perfume. I am still not certain if I want to get the perfume.
I like the whole idea of a body mist. It can be used as a sample of the perfume you want to buy. You can try it on for a month or two and be certain if you like the smell or not, (as I did for Tease) though the perfume would smell stronger than the mist. VS perfumes are pricey so a body mist comes in handy if you want to make a decision.
Another reason why I like body mists is because we get really hot summers. The temperature goes crazy. So putting on a perfume is good but once you start sweating, the strong smell of perfume mixes with it and you kind of start smelling repulsive. Body mists have quite a faint smell, so you can refresh it after a few hours and they don’t make you smell gross.
I love Victoria’s Secret packaging. It is cute, girly and sexy, and seeing how long it can last I think I’ll be returning to VS soon to buy some more.
Which is your favorite body mist?
