It's all in the smell: Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom


Perfume has never been a big lust of mine; I would much rather have a new mascara than switch up my smell. And throughout my life I have flirted with only a few scents. 

In my early teenage years it was some sort of impulse body spray, until I was welcomed to the world of  "grown-up" fragrance. Even then I have been somewhat picky about perfume. My favourite for a long time was Ghost (the one in the classic curvy blue bottle) and then I discovered Marc Jacobs Daisy. 

This past winter I picked up a deeper scent - Hugo Boss Deep Red. But now summer is here I feel lotions and potions are so heavy on skin. But the lovely ladies at Body Shop gifted me with one of their fantastic fragrances, Japanese Cherry Blossom and I have fallen for it. 

It has this fresh and feminine smell and feels super light on my skin, perfect for summer. So I have one more bottle to add to the not so cluttered perfume shelf!

    1. Hi Lucy! This is a great soft smell for summer. I love it. And its pretty affordable so I like to alternate between this and my Marc Jacobs Daisy - make the expensive stuff last longer! :P

  3. I haven't tried this one yet, my 'signature' scent is Allure sensuelle by Chanel, but I always add a new summer scent. Last summer was this one http://au.loccitane.com/cherry-blossom-eau-de-toilette-fragrances-l'occitane-en-provence,23,1,11702,23606.htm (Cherry Blossom as well, sounds similar to The Body Shop one), and this summer I tried Florabotanica by Balenciaga and I'm loving it! :)

    1. Oh I love classic Chanel scents!
      And I love Loccitane products. I have just found that they have a shop in Cyprus so maybe this one is next on my list.

      By the name, the Balaceniaga sounds quite soft and fresh??
