Hi lovely ladies,
I want to review one of my recent purchases that I have been using everyday for the past week – The Body Shop Satsuma Body Mist. As you know, TBS came up with 8 of these body mists matching with corresponding body butters, shower gels, and beautifying oils for each fragrance. I saw 8 of these when I was in Dublin, but I only saw about 4-5 of these in India. I am not sure if all 8 are available in India yet. I have seen Strawberry, Shea, Moringa, Satsuma, and Vanilla.
Anyhoo, coming on to the review, the fragrance I picked up was Satsuma as I am very fond of fruity fragrances, especially in summers.
Price: Rs. 645 for 100 ml, which is pretty neat for the amount you get
Packaging: Comes in a classy orangey glass bottle with a convenient pushdown sprtizer, which is very easy to use. The bottle looks very summery. I won’t say its very travel friendly as it’s a glass bottle, but the size is pretty okay.
Fragrance: When I picked it up I wasn’t sure what Satsuma is. The SA explained it’s a small citrusy fruit much like oranges – small oranges to common people like you and me ☺
Coming on to the fragrance, I think this is by far the best body mist I have used so far from the TBS. I feel like I am sitting in an orange orchard and bathing in cold sweet orange juice when I spritz it. I find myself reaching for this mist ALL THE TIME since I bought it, over my other perfumes and mists. It makes me feel super fresh and cool and the fragrance has a wonderful cheery effect on me. The smell is citrusy, strong and very noticeable when you enter a room but not nauseatingly sweet. I know that because I have a very sensitive nose and feel very sick if I smell something overly sweet. I am somehow reminded of ‘Gold Spot – the zing thing’ whenever I smell this.
Staying power: A couple of spritzes are enough and it easily stays on me for 5-6 hours. So the bottle will last me quite long. I have also bought the Satsuma body butter – so when I use this mist over the body butter it easily stays on me for 9-10 hours although not as strong as when you spray it initially.
Overall verdict: This is my go to mist these days and I totally love the freshness of it. If you are fond of fresh, citrusy, summer scents, then you should not give this a miss. Highly recommended! And buy it along with the body butter if you want the fragrance to last longer and layer it up!
