The other day I got a new body spray so I thought I'd say a bit about which sprays are my favourites, including some of my old ones. By the way, I'm a bit obsessed with fragrances and sprays and I didn't really need another one, but I have been coveting it for ages! So here are my top 5...
1. Soap & Glory Glam-a-lot body spray
This has got to be my favourite spray overall- it's fun, floral and flirty. I love sweet fragrances and this one is absolutely perfect. The only negative is that the fragrance doesn't last very long- a couple of hours after use and you can't smell it at all. Still it's not too expensive, at £6.00 (from Boots) and the bottle has lasted me ages. Go out in this and you are guaranteed to get complimented!
2. Body Shop Coconut body mist
This is the new addition to my collection! The fragrance is irresistible, but not to be tried if you don't like coconut! It's not overpowering at all, but quite subtle and reminds me more of a perfume than a body mist. It is slightly more expensive, at £7.50, though I got it cheaper with a voucher. But I would definitely have paid the full price if I had to. It's worth it for the quality, and the smell sticks with me and keeps me refreshed all day. It is from the new range of body mists in The Body Shop which all smell delicious, but I'm glad I chose this one.
3. Ted Baker London body spray
A friend bought me this spray a while ago but I only just started using it. It's a bit richer than my other sprays, it's quite elegant and sophisticated but still seems like a summer fragrance. The smell is meant to be bergamot and red fruit, and the citrusy bergamot really comes through. I've seen the London body spray in Boots for £5.00, which is a really good price, as it is quite classy but the odour doesn't last very long on your skin.
4. Boots Passionfruit body spray
These last two are a bit cheaper but I still really like them. Fourth place goes to the Boots Natural Collection body spray, which I have being using for years and have bought countless times. I also like some of the other body sprays in the range- wild strawberry, mango, etc. It's quite popular, I could name you several of my friends which use it. This spray is a kind of mixture of flowers and candy, which sounds really weird but is actually really lovely. It's like a burst of energy, it doesn't last for very long but it really revitalises my skin. I don't recommend using it all over your body though, as they suggest on the bottle, as you come out smelling like very perfumed sugar ;) But in small doses, I really like it.
5. Revlon Charlie Touch body spray
Quite rich and heady. If the sprays that I have mentioned had ages, this would be the oldest, as although the packaging suggests that it is for teenagers, it has quite a sophisticated scent. I tend to use this if I am going out, as it lasts quite a long time and is not too strong. The scent is rose and vanilla, and you can pick out the individual smells, which I think is always good. There are loads of other Charlie body fragrances by Revlon, but I haven't tried many of them. Also, they are incredibly cheap at £1.69 (from Superdrug), but you would never know as they seem to be good quality.
So, that brings an end to my list- I recommend all of these sprays and they will all be great for the summer. Comment if you have a favourite body spray that I have not mentioned, I'm always looking for new ones to try!
