I posted recently about having a hard time finding cruelty-free fragrances. The most success I’ve had is with The Body Shop. It has lots of different types of fragrances (eau de parfum, eau de toilette, perfume oils, and body mists) in lots of different scents. It also offers men’s fragrances AND home fragrances (candles, room sprays, and oils). I can’t wait to try the Aloe and Soft Linen home fragrance oil.
The only one I’ve tried, however, is the Shea Body Mist. In the spectrum of types of fragrances–with perfume oil being the most potent and body mist being the least potent–this body mist falls in line. The scent is light and airy and certainly does not last all day. However, I am a fan of subtle scents, so I really like that it doesn’t hang like a cloud around me all day. The Shea scent itself is warm and earthy: a little vanilla-y, a lot nutty. And at $12 for 3.3 fl.oz., it’s worth getting a few to stash at the office, in the gym bag, etc., when you want to reapply.
