Soap & Glory Mist You Madly
Advantages: Long lasting scent, nice packaging
Disadvantages: Smells like my grandma's cheap white musk perfume
As a big fan of Soap & Glory products, I have tried most of their products and use some of them on a regular basis. A few days ago I reviewed the Girligo Moisturising Mist and today I decided to write about another Soap & Glory body mist, the one by the name Mist you Madly.
The Mist you Madly can be purchased from most Boots stores and other online shops for around £6.50 for a bottle of 250 ml. The packaging of this particular product is extremely attractive and typical of most Soap & Glory products. The bottle itself is quite plain, made out of smooth pink plastic, with the pink Soap & Glory logo on the front, and Mist You Madly in big lettering. Underneath the name of the spray, it states that this is a flirty floral fragrant body spray. On the back of the bottle you have a full list of ingredients and you are told to "spritz it on whenever you need a flash of fabulousness.
It is the box that the bottle comes in that really stands out and in my opinion sells this product. It has that fun vintage/retro look typical of Soap & Glory products, with the black and white photo of a smiling 50's lady and various fun quotes, which are quite humorous. Apparently this body spray will bestow the wearer with a newfound kind of self-confidence which will trigger uncontainable fits of flirtatiousness (if only, I had to laugh at that one!)
The body spray is dispensed via a spray pump nozzle and is scented with a blend of bergamot, blackcurrant, magnolia, freesia vanilla and musk. The scent is not typical of most Soap & Glory products (for those of you who are familiar with them). The scent of the mist is quite strong and long lasting, lingering on for a few hours, hence ideal to wear instead of a perfume.
This body spray was bought for me as a present by a friend who knew how much I loved Soap & Glory products. At the time, this was a new product for me and so I was quite excited to have a sniff and of course a spritz. When I first took off the clear plastic top that covers the nozzle and I tried to smell the spray, I could not really decide whether I liked the scent or not. I then spritzed this on a couple of times, and to be quite frank I started gagging. This smelt like my grandma's perfume (bless her cotton socks but she always wore this cheap smelling white musk perfume) and I could not stand it. It was a sickly sweet musky smell, I couldn't for the love of God detect any of the other ingredients listed, apart from the musk. Anyway, I suppose this is down to personal taste, but I would certainly not class this body spray as "young", more like this was made with the very very very mature ladies in mind, or as far as I'm concerned for those without a sense of smell (sorry if I have offended any of you who may be reading this and actually think that it is a lovely fragrance).
However, because it is long lasting, comes in amazing packaging and if it wasn't for the gagging scent it would be a perfect body spray, I cannot totally rate it down so I have awarded it 3 out of 5 doyoo stars.
Summary: My least favourite Soap & Glory products
