As promised, I am bringing you the third body mist from my recent haul from BBW. This range is again a very recent launch by BBW . This will give you an over view of the fragrance, so that it would be helpful for you to decide whether to buy any products from this range. Read on to find how I liked it.
Quantity: 8 fl oz/236 ml (The entire shower gels/body lotions and mists come in almost the same quantity, which is definitely a steal for the price).
Shelf life: Not mentioned on the bottle
Lavishly splash or lightly spritz your favourite fragrance, either way you’ll fall in love at first mist! Our carefully crafted bottle and sophisticated pump delivers great coverage while conditioning aloe mist nourishes skin for the lightest, most refreshing way to fragrance!

My experience with Bath and Body Works Pear Blossom Air Fine Fragrance Mist
Packaging: This mist comes in a very huge, sturdy, plastic, transparent bottle like all BBW mists have the same packaging. The bottle has green plastic cover which makes the bottle/mist appear green. It has minimal detailing with golden rose flowers, which I quite like it even though it is not pink/girly :D. The quantity (236 ml) is very huge which will last forever.
Product: The mist is transparent and is in consistency of water.
Fragrance: When I open the cap and smell the mist from the bottle, it smells of all fresh citrus and green apples. I always feel that the first notes of mists/EDTs are bad :P. Most of the time when I smell the first notes, they smell of some alcohol or a nail polish remover. This is the case as for this mist as well. When I smell the mist immediately after spraying on my skin, it gives a strong ‘nail polish remover’ smell, which I don’t like it. But not to worry, this will vanish in 5 seconds or probably much fast if you rub the mist on skin before it dries.
The middle note is completely of fresh mandarins (citrus) and green apples. However I must say that the fragrance does not show up too much as it is not strong. There is no last note as such, as the middle note continues for the rest of the day. The mist is crisp but not as sharp to bother my nose. This has got a really nice balanced fragrance.
In my experience, I used to like only musky/woody and floral fragrances until I met IMBB. To be frank IMBB has not only changed my perception towards makeup and beauty but also changed my choices/likings: D. For the past 6 months I started using citrus fragrances. I used to think citrus fragrances are only for middle aged women (probably who crossed their 30’s), but yeah I was wrong. Being in mid 20’s I love to wear citrus fragrances to my work and fruity/floral during evenings.
Coming to the pear blossom air fine fragrance mist, I absolutely love how it smells. However there is a clause to it, the staying power.
Staying Power: As said earlier, the mist is not strong enough to stay for not more than 2, if used on its own. Once I spray on my skin, I need to sniff myself to feel the fragrance. So I need to spray more for the fragrance to show off.
However I think it is always a good idea to layer the fragrances. I do not have the shower gel and body lotion from the same range to layer. But I love to layer it with other mandarin/floral perfumes which I own.
Ideal for: As per my taste, it is ideal for spring/summer time and I would love to wear it to office.

It is both Yes and No.

If you are a true mandarin fragrance lover, then you can skip this as the fragrance is very mild.
