Straight up smelling like a teen dream

Let us take you back to a simpler time...
Remember the good old days when fragrance was so cheap you could unload an entire can of Impulse body spray all over yourself, with maybe a spritz or two reserved for your bestie (but only if you weren’t fighting that day)?
In all honesty, we miss the sugary-sweet scents of our youth so much that we’ve been on the hunt for a fragrance offering that can satiate our desperate need to “smell like a baby prostitute,” as everyone’s favourite angsty teen queen Janice Ian would say.
Thankfully, much like diamonds, body mist is forever.
The lightweight way to wear scent has outgrown your teenage tastes, however, and adopted a more mature approach to personal scent with these seven modern body mists. Apply liberally.
Clinique My Happy™ Baby Bouquet
Enjoy a comforting blend of mandarin, orange flower petals and musk that’ll transport you to a state of olfactory bliss. Pure and fresh, this floral bouquet soothes the senses as you wander through the day.
Tom Ford Rose Prick All Over Body Spray
Pretty florals just got a bad case of attitude. A potion of potent wild roses like RoseRose de Mai, and Turkish and Bulgarian blooms too, this rose body mist seems sweet but trust us – she has thorns.
Jo Malone London Nectarine Blossom & Honey Body Mist
There’s nothing sweeter than a spritz that takes inspiration from summery stone fruits and honey (at least in our opinion). Notes of nectarine, peach, cassis, spring flowers and acacia honey tantalise the senses while the thoughtful addition of hydrators to the body mist add a glowy sheen to skin upon contact.
DIOR Body Mist
You can enjoy the same sensual floral notes as the iconic J’adore perfume in a delicate body mist format that simultaneously hydrates skin and wraps you in a seductive scent. Spritz liberally over the body for an ephemeral take on personal fragrance.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Cheirosa '40 Body Fragrance Mist
Love to slather your limbs in the brand's famous bum bum cream? Then why not try layering your fragrance and body cream picks for a multifaceted take on the iconic fragrance? Enrich the body hydrator with notes of black amber plum, crème de cassis, warm vanilla woods, fresh jasmine blooms and musk in this body mist.
The Body Shop Coconut Body Mist
This coconut body mist is going to leave you smelling like a tropical desert in all of the best ways. Embrace the delicious scent of fresh coconut and sugar accords. Just be warned – we can’t promise someone won’t want to take a little nibble out of you.
Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Fragrance Spritz
A sweet-smelling vanilla spritz is always a welcome addition to a fragrance wardrobe in our opinion, and always proves to be a bit of a crowd favourite. One for the beach and gym bag – douse yourself for an instant pick-me-up.
