The Body Shop Pomegranate and Raspberry Room Spray
Advantages: nice scent, holds well, multi purpose
I sometimes do a large order on the Body Shop website if they have particularly good deals on and, a few months ago, there was 40% off certain items (and free delivery) so I took the opportunity to buy a few bits. I love the Body Shop products as they are very good quality and smell so good, but I do not shop there regularly as they are a little bit more expensive than I can justify paying for everyday goods.
On my most recent order was this Pomegranate and Raspberry room spray. We were looking to sell our house and anything that could give us a little bit of an edge (and nice smelling rooms would do that!) was welcome. I can't use candles like I used to with a toddler in the house! This fragrance is also available a reed diffuser and scented candles so you can also double up for a stronger scent if you so wish.
The spray costs £6 for a 100ml bottle. The bottle feels a good quality and is made of quite a heavy duty glass - thick enough that you feel it won't necessarily smash if you drop it (although I wouldn't advise testing this!). It has a black plastic cap that can be removed to reveal the spray nozzle which can be gently compressed to give a fairly diverse spray of the scent. The instructions say spray once or twice in the centre of the room. I find this confusing as it doesn't say for which sized room this is appropriate and common sense says a downstairs toilet, for example, would/should! need less spraying than a bigger area like a kitchen or lounge. Immediately after spraying, the fruity scent is evident - more raspberry than pomegranate (not that I really know what one smells like) but very fuity and fresh. It is a sweet, pleasant aroma that definitely lifts the room. After spraying, I can usually smell this for about 20 mins to half an hour in the room - so great for applying just before you have company.
The spray is also a linen spray and I usually apply this to my curtains as a way of making the room smell fresh for longer - especially when the sunlight hits them. Initially, I was worried that this could lead to some discolouration so I tested a patch first. I have had no problems at all, so I now apply to curtains, sofas and bedspreads with complete confidence. It freshens things up really well. The spray can also be used as a body spray but I have not used for this purpose - it seems odd to me that a spray can be used on your body if designed for your linen/house and I certainly don't want to smell the same as my rooms! Still, I guess it's a money saver if you don't mind that!
Overall, I really recommend this spray (especially if you can pick it up a bit cheaper than the RRP) as it is so refreshing and does make your home smell lovely and welcoming.
