One of my favourite beauty products of last year was Soap&Glory’s Super Tonic Orangeasm Fragrance
, so on a recent trip to Boots, I was pretty pleased to spot a couple of new fragrance mists added to their range. Initially, I was drawn to them because of Soap&Glory signature pink packaging, the design is simplistic but really pretty, it’s totally perfect for the brand and all of their loyal fans (which I am one of!). So thumbs up for the packaging but how does the fragrance match up?
Unlike the Orangeasm
which has a citrus note of green mandarin and cool mint with a slightly herbal kick to it, I would describe both Mist You Madly and Fruitigo as a scent that you’d typically associate with Soap&Glory. Neither of the scents are new to Soap&Glory though, die hard fans will already be familiar with it as some products are scented with Mist You Madly or Fruitigo.
Mist You Madly is a beautiful blend of freesia, cassis and sweet vanilla with a bit of fresh mandarin, bergamot oils, sandalwood, and spicy cardamom thrown in for good measure. I love anything with cassis in it so having that in is a winner for me! I can’t detect the cardamom in it but I suspect that that’s what gives this fragrance a bit of warmth to it.
There are a few layers to Mist You Madly, it starts off with an instant hit of floral, with a dry down of powdery vanilla. If I could describe the colour pink as a scent, it would be very close to Mist You Madly.
As the name suggests, Fruitigo is mouthwateringly fruity! Because of the colour of the bottle, I expected it to smell like berries at first but the yuzu fruit and the pomelo essence gives Fruitigo it’s tartness,while the wild fig off-sets the zing with it’s sweetness.
I would describe Fruitigo as fresh, juicy and sparkling whereas Mist You Madly is soft, floral and girly. I think my favourite out of the two is Fruitigo – I can’t stop smelling it! It’s such a nice fragrance for Spring!
The fragrance mists lasts about 2-3 hours and they’re not overpowering so you spritz it whenever you feel like it. You can use it over a Soap&Glory body butter to boost the smell, or on it’s own over your clothes, it makes a nice alternative to a body spray or eau de toilette. They retail at £10 and are available from Boots nationwide. It’s a pretty big bottle (100ml) and has a shelf life of 24 months. They do tend do lasts for months even when you use it on a daily basis.
Here’s an exclusive snippet of beauty news for you… There is another Soap&Glory fragrance launching next month which I am SO EXCITED to tell you about because I know you’re all going to LOVE it! But that’s all I can reveal at this point, I can’t tell you anymore right now (even though I’m itching to!)… You’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for it on my blog!
