Battle of the Perfume Body Sprays*

I feel like the good ol' body spray is making a bit of a revival. In my early teens my room was plentiful with Rexona body sprays (do the even still make them?) and I remember spritzing/drowning myself in it most recess and lunch breaks. I've had some delicious body sprays in my possession for quite some time now and, with the weather heating up, I thought it'd be the best time to share my thoughts on them. 
Australis has two body sprays in their collection Get Your Rocks Off* and Wild at Heart*. Get Your Rocks Off* says to be a 'delicious fruity combination of beautiful berry, crazy coconut mag mango and awesome apricot". Enough with the alliteration, guys. Though this scent says to be full of all those delicious things, all I can really smell is a floral gardenia/jasmine kind of scent that I find to be somewhat off putting. Wild at Heart* is the ghost of body sprays past and smells exactly like one I had at school. Memories! It's said to be 'packed with punchy fruits, violet and mint". This is my pick of the two Australis Perfume Body Sprays, though it's not the kind of scent I reach for. It's quite musky and, once again, I don't really smell the scents described. I definitely get the mint right at the end though!

The Australis Perfume Sprays* are available from Priceline for $4.49

The Australis Body Perfumes* are quite mature scents and, although they may appeal to a number of people, I don't think they're the 'ones' for me. If, like myself, you prefer sweeter and fruiter scents, I may have the thing for you!
Cue Hello Kitty. Hello Kitty has four Perfumed Body Mists* available and I have three in the collection. The first, Vanilla Ice Cream*, smells exactly like a dessert or lolly from my childhood. It's the most delicious scent that's a hybrid of vanilla milkshakes and cupcakes. Strawberry & Cream* is probably the 'freshest' scent out of the three and it's still very sweet. It smells like traditional strawberries and cream. Finally we have Bubblegum* and really only need to say one thing, Grape Hubba Bubba. If you're a 90s kid and you know what I'm talking about - how good is it?! If you're not, you need to try it next time you're out and about..

The Hello Kitty Perfume Body Mists* are available from Priceline for $4.99

My favourite Perfumed Body Sprays are definitely those from Hello Kitty. They're a lot more fun, fresh and carefree. All three scents are so reminiscent to me and remind my younger days and I just love when a scent can do that! 

I'll definitely be throwing a perfumed body spray in my handbag this summer to freshen up throughout the day. Would you do the same? Have you tried perfumed body sprays recently?

  1. I love the Hello Kitty ones too...and some of the impulse ones. I love the vanilla and bubblegum Hello kitty sprays! There's also a 'musk sticks' one (in a blue can) in a couple of different stores. it smells exactly like those pink lolly musk sticks!

  2. I like also vanilla spray. Used the fruity fragrance for young women & Soft, crisp, juicy, sweet & cheerful. It recommended for summer wear.
