“ Brand: Elle Macpherson / Type: Body Spray / Mist / Subcategory: Spray „
I'm a bit of a fragrance addict and love trying different scents. My favourite ones are the type that smell of food, and this Sweet Lime Body Spray sounded particularly appetising! The Elle MacPherson "The Body" range can be found at Boots stores on the high street or online at www.boots.com. This body spray costs £4.95 for a 100ml bottle.
This Sweet Lime Body Spray is part of Elle MacPherson's "The Body" range, and forms part of the BARE collection, which consists of items that Elle considers to be bare essentials. The blurb on the packaging says: "Bare is a tightly edited collection of 'must haves'; the products I can't live without. Revive the senses with this refreshing body spray".
The bottle is tall and thin with a plain cream background and lots of descriptive text about the product on the back. The size is easy to slip into a bag and I keep this one with me when I'm going out and about for a quick freshen up.
Directions for use: Surround your body with this gorgeous zesty fragrance whenever you please! Shake well and spray 15cm from your body.
This body spray sounds lovely and I really like the smell of limes. Sadly though, from my experience the spray smells very fake and synthetic, it is not a realistic or natural fruity fragrance at all. It has a sparkly zesty kick to it which is very full on and it smells strongly when you first apply it. I would describe the fragrance as summery but it verges on smelling acidic and is not sweet like I was expecting from the name. It does settle down a little after a short time, but then the scent fades away to nothing within about an hour or two, so it hardly seems worth putting it on in the first place.
This is an ok body spray, but the smell is a bit too fake for my liking and for the price I would have expected something better. I will stick to using this for a quick spritz after working out to help me freshen up but I wouldn't choose to wear it as a statement fragrance and I won't be buying it again. A bit of a let down!
I absolutely adore the Elle Macpherson body and skincare range - it's my favourite bath and body range and everything feels so special and luxurious that you feel like a real VIP when you use the products.
Boots is the only place I know that does the Elle range, but I don't know if the range is sold somewhere else and I just haven't seen it, or if they are the only stockists.
This body spray is quite a new addition to the range (I have only seen it in the past few months) and it is very pricey for a body spray (£4.95 compared to about £1.25 for my usual body spray) but I got it free as a 3for2 offer when buying some bath cream and moisturiser and it is so nice that I probably will buy it again despite the hefty price tag!
The spray has a lovely light, modern citrus smell and isn't too overpowering or artificial smelling, but a little goes a long way so you don't have to spray loads and then spend ages coughing like with some other sprays!
You can "layer" the fragrance too by using the matching bath and shower products and moisturiser which is nice.
I love this spray - it's so summery!!
