I have never been a fan of strong smells. They give me very bad headaches. I am sure many of you must have faced the same issue at some point of time. When my mom gifted me a Paco Rabanne this past Diwali, I was very excited to try it out mostly because it was my first perfume. But after using it on 3-4 occasions, I sadly had to discontinue using it because it gave very strong headaches. I had to give it away to my cousin who was more than happy to accept it and she must have thanked me a 100 times for my supposedly generosity. So what should someone like me do? I do like to smell good but if perfumes are not my cup of tea then where would a damsel go? Then came on a shiny white horse a bottle of fragrance mist, to rescue me…

Packaging: It comes in a transparent spray bottle. Thought I personally love Bath & Body Works packaging, this particular fragrance mist bottle though pretty, is not so sturdy. It has already developed scratch marks even though I have been very careful in using it. I tend to have butter fingers and can only hope that I don’t drop the bottle.
My experience with Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Fragrance Mist:
I never spray it on my skin but on the clothes. I am quite bad at describing smells but I can confidently say that it is quite pleasant. Since I was trying out the Japanese Cherry Blossom range it was quite obvious for me to pick the fragrance mist from this range. I have tried the body lotion and shower gel from this range, but all smell somewhat different from one another.
The reason why I like fragrance mist to perfumes is that the smell does stand out even though it is mild and the biggest plus point is that it doesn’t give me headaches. It is not overpowering and doesn’t give me or the people around me headaches. I don’t turn heads but this power of the smell is enough to keep me feeling fresh and smelling good for 1.5-2 hrs.
What I like about Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Fragrance Mist:
- Pleasant smell
- Cruelty free
- Doesn’t give headaches
What I don’t like about Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Fragrance Mist:
- Expensive if bought in India
- Staying power
- Packaging seems cheap

Repurchase: Yes, but some other Bath & Body Works fragrance mist. I am on a mission to try out all the fragrances from Bath & Body Works.
