I am writing after a very long time. Sometimes you get busy with work and family, and so many other things, that you would not be able to make time for yourself. It was that kind of a situation for me, for the last 5 months and finally, I’m out of all that – back on track! Today’s review is about a product that I have been using all this time for the last 2 months. It’s a body mist from Bath and Body Works.
Lavishly splash or lightly spritz your favorite fragrance, either way you will 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!
A summer-chic blend of sparkling star fruit & ocean-kissed frangipani blossoms,its pure paradise in a bottle!
Mid Notes: Luscious Gardenia, Frangipani, Watery Lily.
Dry Notes: White Musk, Blond Woods, Sun-Kissed Coconut.
Top Notes: Fresh Star Fruit, Juicy Guava, Dewy Cassis.
Approximately Rs. 800, I don’t remember the exact price.
My Take on Bath and Body Works Pure Paradise Fine Fragrance Mist:
Well, this body mist is from the “signature collection” and the fragrance notes that were mentioned on the website seemed amazing. I got this one thinking it to be a perfect body mist for the summers. Taking a look at the packaging, it’s not something different, it’s the usual plastic mist bottle, which means safe for people who often drop things. Now, talking about the fragrance, it’s the perfect summery scent, as expected. I purchased this one during the start of winters and used it very rarely. In Chennai, summer has already set in and this is my favorite fragrance for this season. It smells so much of fruits, very much of guava and sweet pineapple. When I say it smells of fruits, it’s not overpowering at all, it’s the right amount of sweetness. The moment you spray it, you feel you are in a tropical island and the fragrance makes you happy. Every time I spray it on, I think about a vacation to some beach destination.
What disappointed me is the staying power. After I spray, it vanishes away in less than an hour. Do you believe it?!!But that’s what actually happens. I spray it lavishly and when I say lavishly, I mean it! In that case, it stays for 1-2 hours. This bottle is not tiny enough to find a place in your handbag. So, the option of splashing it every 2 hours is ruled out! Body mists are not like perfumes that smell good for 6-8 hours, but I wish this mist stayed on for at least 4 to 5 hours, I would have been happier.
Having said all this, I will quickly point out what’s good and what’s not so good about this body mist.
What I Like about Bath and Body Works Pure Paradise Fine Fragrance Mist:
- The packaging, not made of glass, it’s a plastic mist bottle.
- The fresh fruity fragrance, which I love love and love!
- Typical scent for the summer time.
- Not an overpowering scent, will not bother sensitive noses.
What I Do Not Like about Bath and Body Works Pure Paradise Fine Fragrance Mist:
- The staying power – total disappointment.
- The huge bottle – unfit to carry around.
Would I Recommend Bath and Body Works Pure Paradise Fine Fragrance Mist?
For the fragrance “yes,”, but “no” for the staying power.
To wrap up, I was expecting this to be a nice smelling mist that would stay for at least 4-5 hours, but sadly, it failed on that front, despite being from the signature collection. I am a sucker for TBS body mists and I feel they are way better than this one.
