Bath and Body Works Sea Island Cotton Fragrance Mist Review
It has been a long time since I reviewed any fragrance here on IMBB. I have been using the Bath and Body Works fragrance for quite some time and thus thought this would be the best time to do the review.
I got many Bath and Body Works product as gift from my friend and this Sea Island Cotton Fragrance Mist is one among that. I always had a good impression about this brand until I saw this plain non-attractive bottle !! I have never seen such an unattractive, boring packaging, especially for a fragrance. I am a perfume lover and when it comes to perfumes, even the packaging plays an important role. So, I never had any interest to try this out initially.
One day my mom asked me why I haven’t used it and I thought I can at least just give it a try.
The product comes in a lightweight plastic bottle and the packaging is very basic and just plain. Though, this is a very big con, if you ignore it, you might fall in love with the fragrance!!!!
I prefer fresh, summery and fruity fragrances, but this one is dominatingly musky. If you are a musk lover, then you will love this one too. Though I don’t love it, I don’t hate it too. The fragrance stays for quite some time, 4 hrs maximum. The fragrance is not strong in spite of being musky and that is the main reason I am using it.
• Fragrance Top Notes: Fresh Bright Floral Accord, Clean Cotton Accord, Drenched Air Accord, Fresh Linen Effect, Wet Green Pear, Blood Orange, Tangerine
• Fragrance Mid Notes: White Muguet, Crisp Orange Flower, Watery Cyclamen, White Freesia, Cotton Blossom Headspace, Dewy Jasmine
• Fragrance Base Notes: Clean Powder, White Musk, Sandalwood, Vanilla Absolute

88 ml of this fragrance costs $5, but you can always find this in offer and grab one when you find the best deal.
Pros of Bath and Body Works Sea Island Cotton Fragrance Mist
• Fragrance is neither too strong and nor mild- it is just perfect.
• This is for woody fragrance lovers, you will love the fragrance.
• Comes in best price, almost throughout the year.
• Small bottle and hence very compact.
• Can be easily carried around in the handbag.
• Has ingredients list in the bottle (when the bottle doesn’t even have the brand name).
Cons of Bath and Body Works Sea Island Cotton Fragrance Mist
• The packaging is absolutely boring and dull.
• Nowhere is there a mention of the brand BBW. I peeled the sticker at the back and only then, I found it was from Bath and Body Works!!!
• Availability in India is very limited. I tried to spot it in my place, but could not find it till now.
My Rating: 3/5.
Will I Repurchase: Not the same fragrance, but a different one, might be one which is fresh and fruity. Also, I might watch out for the best deal and grab it during the offer time.

I too love flowery and friuty fragrances.. But nw a days i use musky fragrances….
I m very new to musky too 🙂
i bought the Moonlight path frangrance Mist from BBW but strangely enough the brad name – BBW is nowhere on the bottle nor are the ingredients..I went to a Bath and Body Works store (in the US) and bought it so i know its not a fake. I quite like it. its more a bedtime type fragrance..
like you rightly said the bottle is not very attractive but this one being Lavender’ish it is a purple bottle..
When I checked out their website.. everything else like their body wash, cream etc have some decent packaging.. only this one is so simple 🙁
Where do you get BBW products in Mumbai? 😯
I didn’tfind it in Chennai.. Anybody from Mumbai?
I have secret wonderland mist and I’m liking it so much :)) I’m going to get it again now. Will try the sweet pea too.
This one I have in lotion form and have reviewed on my blog,its too musky for my taste too. 🙁
Ohh I have the sweet Pea lotion and I love it 🙂
I just realized now after you pointed it out that the fragrance mist bottles indeed don’t have the BBW brand marked anywhere on them, except in the peel-off sticker. :idk: The old packaging style did, I think. Those look a bit more interesting. :))
Nice review Aarthi. :)) I can’t remember though if what I had before was Sea Island Cotton or Cotton Blossom, they smelled very similar to each other.
Thank You Ida 🙂 I haven’t seen their old packaging 🙁
Im not very fond sea island cotton…may be thats cos there are soooooo many fragrances to choose from 😛 yeah i agree the new packing for their signature collection fragrances is kinda boring..Thank God its not for all products tho 😛
