Posts Tagged ‘fragrance for all seasons’

Hello everyone, as you all know or will come to know that I am not into beauty blogging and I only share my paintings, poetry, writings, thoughts and art works on this blog. I love to own basic beauty products and felt like sharing my thoughts on some of them that I repeatedly use. So I begin this new series of blog posts with my favorite Layer’rs Wottagirl body mist ‘Mystic Island’.

While we all love to smell good there are people like me who are highly sensitive and perfume intolerant. I keep looking for perfumes which I can wear comfortably but I could find very few. These few fragrances that I could find had one thing in common to my surprise- they all were citrus and oceanic scents and amazingly flowing water drives me super crazy.

I saw the Parineeti Chopra ad on TV a few days back and the word ‘Mystic Island’ was enough for me to try it out. When I went to my nearest cosmetics store I was super surprised to know that it was for Rs 195 only and I couldn’t be happier.

There are two more fragrances which were launched along with this- Vanilla Twist and Secret Crush. The names are quite impressive I should say.
Vanilla Twist smells of butterscotch and Secret Crush is very sweet fragrance and they are both stronger than Mystic Island for obvious reasons.

Fragrance Mystic Island

Price 195 for 135ml

Packaging- The product comes in a clear plastic bottle which looks like glass. Personally I find these bottles quite classy especially for this price. Overall the packaging is quite sturdy and that makes it travel friendly too.

Fragrance- As I mentioned earlier, the fragrance is aquatic and citrus. It is mild fragrance and feels very fresh. I would call it a luxurious blend of bitter orange, lemon, musk, aquatic and woody notes,

Staying power- it is known to all the body mist users that their staying power is very low. Generally they last 3-4 hours and I did not expect anything more from this. I keep this bottle in my hand bag and spray it twice or thrice during the day. It lifts my senses immediately and makes me feel fresh.

Overall I am super happy with this body mist as the fragrance is very refreshing. It is one of the best body mists for perfume allergic people especially for those who are on a budget. It is very close to my favourite perfume- Davidoff Cool Water for women which costs around 1600 INR.

Pros
° Mild, refreshing fragrance
° Best for perfume allergic people
° Super affordable
° Perfect for everyday use
° Suitable for all seasons
° Travel friendly light and sturdy packaging

Cons
° Contains alcohol

I don’t see the staying power as a con because body mists usually last for max 5-6 hours so this one does its job exceptionally well considering the price. It is a must try for all, go grab one now and tell me what you think about it in the comments.
