This post is a lesson to us all about reading the labels on things. I was sent this a while ago now to review and I was all set to not give this a great review until I realised I was using it all wrong. I read the name of the product and thought it was scented body spray and that the oils was simply a reference to the fact that it was an aromatherapy product. So giving myself a couple of quick spritzes, putting my clothes on, I was finding I could detect little or not scent. Doh!
In fact this is actually a body oil in a spray form. You spritz it all over and then massage in. When you actually do that, you’ll find you can smell it. What an idiot.
Anyway, Bliss, I’ve already talked about the fragrance in my candles post, but I’ll recap here. Floral accents of jasmine and ylang ylang. Rosewood and patchouli calm nerves and banish stress while sandalwood and black pepper soothe and fortify. It smells amazing. It couldnt’t be more up my street frankly. Jasmine, patchouli (which it is light on) and sandalwood are amongst my favourite scents, ever. It’s not greasy, is quickly absorbed as the base is so light (apricot, borage and passionflower oils). And yes, once you massage it in, all over, you really can smell it, and without meaning to go OTT, it really is blissful.
60mls will set you back £12.50 so it isn’t cheap, but some aromatherapy oils don’t come cheap and in my humble opinion it’s worth it. And whats more, because of the base, a little goes a long way so your £12.50 should last a good while and its very nicely moisturising. Highly recommended.
