Anyone who knows me will say I’m not a perfume girl. For me, perfumes smell…weird. I don’t want to smell like that! However, I still want to smell good and that’s where Victoria’s Secret Garden Fragrant Body Splash comes in. I believe the product is now officially called a “body mist”, but either way it’s labeled, it’s the same product. The design of the bottles change every-so-often, but the great product is still inside!
I just want to put this out there for anyone who doesn’t shop at Victoria’s Secret or Victoria’s Secret Beauty. These are great stores for women to “feel like a woman” as corny as that sounds! You don’t have to shop there just to impress men, or for any other reason than to feel good about yourself . The beauty section offers this body splash along with a whole line of products that match the smell so you can moisturize, bathe, and spritz with this wonderful scent and feel great! Splurge on yourself, you deserve it…Kroger brands just won’t do!
I currently use Sweet Temptation which I absolutely love. It’s got a gentle smell that is best compared to flowers, but not really comparable to anything. It smells *like* perfume, but it’s just a little milder and less perfumy. It’s hard to explain besides saying that it’s just mild perfume.
I also love the Strawberry scent and the Love Spell scent! I try to avoid going in VS or VS beauty at all costs because it always ends up with me buying 50$ worth of clothes or sprays…however I just can’t live without this spray so I guess I’ll have to make the sacrifice!
Besides the smell being mild, a body spray is different than a perfume in that you can spray it anywhere and everywhere to give you an all over good smell. A perfume usually is only 1 or 2 sprays, but with this spray as much as you like, directly onto your skin, and you’ll feel great.
The bottle also claims that the spray has aloe vera and chamomile to lightly moisturize and I can vouch for this working. I’ve sprayed perfumes on my arm before, and felt dry or itchy. With this spray I don’t feel “moisturized” but I also don’t feel dry and I believe that is due to the ingredients mentioned above. This is great because I like to spray it all over and I wouldn’t want to be dry and itchy all over.
It is a spritz bottle so you push down on the spritzer to spray a good amount at a time. I spritz like 10 times sometimes when I want the smell to really stick with me, but generally one or two spritzes will do. It comes in an 8 oz bottle which has lasted me at least 4 months, although I can’t recall exactly how long. I use this product daily unless I’m in a rush so I feel it’s lasted pretty dang long!
Victoria’s Secret line of body splashes/mists will definitely have you feeling great and smelling good without the overpowering scent of perfume. It’s the kind of product you can wear to work, school or play without giving off the impression that you are *trying* to smell good. Instead it’s more of the “oh, that smells good, is that you?” kind of thing. People notice the scent, but it’s so slight that they aren’t covering their noses and saying (as I do) “woah, how much perfume did you put on today!” Ok, I only say that in my head but you get the picture. Go out and try VS Body Splash today. They always have a few free trials on the shelf! You’ll love it!
