I remember raving about the Shea Beautifying Oil and how I wanted a perfume with that same scent that makes me come back for the entire Shea-series of The Body Shop again and again. Well, here's the next best thing: The Shea Body Mist. Naturally, it's not a perfume per se. The lasting power is quite ridiculous but when you take it at face value and keep in mind that it's meant to be a splash, it's quite a lovely product. If you want it to last the entire day, you best put it in your handbag and take it with you to re-apply. I've used it as an allover body spray several times and the skin conditioning quality isn't something worth mentioning. I really need my oils & creams. But the scent is simply something I've grown addicted to. I mostly use it like I would use a perfume, only a little more generous and several times a day and it makes me happy. Sometimes that's just enough, isn't it? You get quite a huge flask (100ml) for a decent 9 € and although I've been using it excessively, it's still almost full so I expect this to last some time. BUT: I will repurchase!
I love the Shea body cream & so I had to have this new body spray. It's a very warm, comforting scent. The glass bottle is very pretty and I prefer it their plastic packaging. This scent lasted several hours on me which was a nice suprise : ) It's not in any way overpowering or loud. It's slightly sweet, nutty, *almost* caramel-like. It is not a foody scent. Would compliment the Shea body cream very nicely.
