      a gorgeous Summer scent

      ~Hawaiian Shores~

      Hawaiian Shores Body Mist is a light fragranced mist that Avon offer. They also offer a body moisturising gel in the same fragrance.

      This body mist is in liquid form is presented in a gorgeous, transparent blue bottle with colourful flowers adorning it. The bottle features a spray top for easy and quick application. Hawaiian Shores is described as being a 'floral marine' scent and has a blend of star fruit, hibiscus blossoms, sheer musk, Hawaiian orchids, warm amber and driftwood.

      A 100ml bottle can be purchased from www.avonshop.co.uk or direct from the Avon book. This mist retails at £3.50 but is currently on offer at just £1.75.

      ~My Thoughts~

      I love wearing body mists when the weather is warm and occasionally favour a scented mist to a heavy perfume. Whilst I am not a massive fan of the Avon body sprays, this Hawaiian Shores Body Mist is a favourite of mine. I have recently used up the bottle I purchased last Summer but have put in an order for more. £1.75 is a bargain price to pay for this product. It may seem quite expensive at full price but given that it lasts longer on the skin than the likes of Impulse, I am happy to pay such a price.

      The bottle is very pretty and easy to use. It is a convenient size to slip into my bag when out and about so that I can refresh whilst outside. A few sprays is needed to cover my bare skin and the mist is slightly damp (but not soaking wet) and very cooling when it hits my skin. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and soft but not overly moisturised. I have never experienced any irritation from using this body mist.

      The scent of Hawaiian Shores is very chilled out and definitely a Summery scent. It obviously isn't as strong as an EDT or perfume but it has a pleasant level of scent to leave my skin smelling gorgeous and me feeling confident that I am wearing some sort of scent - I feel naked without some scent on my skin! Hawaiian Shores would appeal to most females - it is a feminine scent which is neither too mature or too young on the skin. It is simply a gorgeous scent to wear.

      Hawaiian Shores comes across as being an exotic scent and is incredibly fresh and invigorating as well as being rather calming at the same time. It reminds me of holidaying abroad and has a beach type scent - a mix of ocean air, sand, palm trees and delicate flowers rolled into one. There is a beautiful sweet undertone to the scent which reminds me of sun lotion with a delicate hint of coconut. I don't notice any muskiness when wearing this mist and it is light yet noticeable when on my skin.

      ~Conclusion~

      I love the way this mist smells on my skin. It is a happy, refreshing scent which is perfect for wearing as a light fragrance to the beach or when out walking or relaxing in the sun. It lasts a few hours on my skin before I need to reapply but I don't mind doing this. My 100ml bottle received quite a lot of use and lasted me through last Summer and the few warmer days we have recently had so it is long lasting and well worthy of the price tag.

      5 stars!

      Thanks for reading :)

        Great for summer as it helps to cool you down!

        I purchased this body spray as it was on offer for £1.75, I think that was half price.

        The mist comes presented in a spray bottle that is transparent, useful for seeing how much of it you have left. The bottle sprays well and the nozzle has never failed to spray on my bottle. The spray can be used all over the body and it's great for hot summer days as it helps to cool you down. The spray can even be used on your hair. I spray some into the air and walk under it so that some of the mist settles onto my hair. Using the spray this way leaves me with sweet smelling hair and a sweet smelling room too!

        The mist settles well onto the skin and it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy at all. Just a few sprays onto the body is all you need to leave your skin pleasantly fragranced. The smell of the body mist is what I would describe as quite summery and tropical. It does smell nice, although I think some people would be put off by the sweetness of the scent. If you like tropical and/ or coconut scents I would recommend that you try this one. If you dislike sweet scents then stay away!

        A lovely summery body spray. Try storing it in the fridge for extra refreshment!

        I purchased this from the Avon brochure but I haven't noticed it in there for a while. It's probably worth giving eBay a try if you're interested in it.

        A lovely summery tropical scent.

          .

          I don't know if this scent is coming out of the main book, but there is a section in the current Avon book of scents that won't be featured in the main book anymore and I think this is 1 of them. I only tried this scent about 6 months ago and it hasn't really been out all that long. It is a nice scent but I would say it is more of a Summer scent so perhaps this is the reason that it is getting phased out of the main book.

          This scent comes in a 50ml Perfume which I think the right price is £10.50 and this Body Mist which comes in a 100ml bottle and the right price is £3.50 but can usually be found on offer for £1.75.

          The bottle for this is alright. It is a pump action bottle which ends up more economical than an aerosol. The bottle looks like the picture on there and it is a clear plastic bottle and you can see the light green coloured liquid through the bottle. There is a stick on wrap around label on the bottle as well and this has a few coloured flowers on it.

          So how does this smell? It is such a nice scent. It is a very Oceanic scent, but with this having the word Shores in it then I guess I would expect a Sea scent in here. It smells like a fresh sea breeze and there does seem to be a hint of Floral in here, but it is more a heavy floral I would say, so perhaps a dash of Lily through this. Overall it is just nice.

          I find that just a few squirts of this go a long way and I can smell this lingering a good bit later in the day. While this is on special offer and in case this disappears for good then I will probably stock up on a few of these.

          A good, refreshing Body Spray and recommended by myself.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A light summery floral fragrance at an affordable price

            The Product ~ 'Kihe ka ihu i ka 'ale {One who sneezes when the spray from the surf rises at the bow of the canoe {Said of one who braves danger with indifference'

            This summery fragrance comes in a plastic container adorned with three images of a brown, pink and blue orchid. In lovely Lucida font the titled name boldly decorates the spritz. Although the contents are transparent, the scent looks blue due to the clever design of the blue information label on the reverse of the container. This 100ml vaporisateur has a lengthy 24 months shelf life.

            Usage Experience ~ 'Pae mai la ka wa'a i ka 'aina { The canoe has come ashore {Hunger is satisfied; desire fulfilled'

            As an eau de toilette, typically only 8% or less the strength of perfume, this light and airy fragrance is more suited to the summer season, but I love wearing it throughout the year. With its practical spritz nozzle, the spray comes out in sharp short blast. The product feels cold and rather less like a mist than a rather moist water jet upon impact on my skin. I now apply it around eight inches from my body to furnish a more misting effect.

            I do find that the aroma is a little too strong on initial application. Although the top notes are supposed to encompass carambola, Star fruit, I feel the aroma is more on the level of hibiscus. After a very brief time, this soon takes a deeper musk bouquet with wonderful amber overtones; although the middle notes are reputed to contain hibiscus and orchid, I personally can't detect these aromas. Eventually the balm settles to a lovely and refreshing blend of mostly amber with undertones of woody notes with musk.

            I love to spray this odouriser lightly on my neck, wrist and even my hair. By spraying into the air, and immediately walking underneath the cologne, I find the fine mist furnishes my hair with a faint aromatic essence. I will say though, that on occasion, I have sprayed this scent in a non ventilated room, and the primary impact is quite heady and to some extent sickly!

            I'm happy to confirm that I do not find the mist stains clothes as I often gently spray the automiser over my clothing too. This method affords a beautiful wafting aroma in a light breeze in its wake, though the 'Linx effect' is definitely missing! :~) Although I do not notice the fragrance after a while, unless I put my nose to my wrist, others have remarked on its pleasant ambient floral notes.

            Using this lovely balmy flowery eau de toilette doesn't transport me to 'Hawaiian shores', but I feel lifted by its cheery exhilarating character :~)

            Would I Recommend? ~ 'A'ohe hana a Kauhikoa; ua kau ka wa'a i ke 'aki {Kauhikoa has nothing more to do; his canoe is resting on the block {The work is done'

            Yes, I certainly do advocate this gorgeous graceful fruity fragrance as a light and airy aroma, especially suited for the spring and summer seasons. The perfume last surprising well considering its delicate features. I love using the product as a hair scent and on my clothing.

            I purchased this lovely vaporizer via my local Avon rep, but it can also be purchased through the company's web site, Avonshop.co.uk, currently available on offer on a 'Buy 1 choose 1 for £2.00 mix n match across His and Hers Fragrances and pamper treats'. I purchased mine for the same price it is presently, £3.50.

            Thank you for taking the time to read my review on Hawaiian Shores Body Mist. I hope it was beneficial :~) xXx
