Perfumes are a luxury to own, with some costing ungodly prices – but they’re a must-have for major occasions when you want to smell divine to create a good impression. However, you cannot only rely on perfumes when going about your daily business. They’re very pricey, depending on which of your signature fragrances you have. Plus, you don’t really need to spritz on your expensive perfume just to run a tiny errand, do you?
So this is where body mists come in handy. Body mists are a must-have for times you just want to smell great while doing groceries or having brunch with your besties. They’re not as intense as perfumes, and they’re entirely inexpensive to purchase – meaning you can buy all kinds of body mists with different scents without actually breaking your bank.
Body mists have a milder, gentler and lighter scent than our magnificent perfumes, thus they don’t linger as long. Hence, you may need to refresh a couple of times during the day to keep the all-over fragrance at full strength. However, given how affordable body mists are, they’re a terrific option to have in your fragrance collection and would be a nice complementing smell to match with your signature perfume.
Now, with all the body mists in the world, which one should you choose? The choices are endless considering that most beauty brands offer them. However, we’ve compiled a list of our top picks of body mists which are not only affordable, but smell incredible!
