Forest Essentials NARGIS Body Mist
The moment you hear – Body Mist – you think of good smelling light perfumes that don't even last a couple of hours properly. I have that thought ingrained in me more because I have majorly used body mists from The Body Shop. They do smell nice but longevity is not a virtue they possess. So, without a trace of doubt, I was cynical about the Forest Essentials Nargis Body Mist.
If you have been reading the blog for some time (Thank You), you might be aware that I do not have a good relationship with Forest Essentials. Someway, most of them failed to be proved worthy of the price they are retailed. Here, I must mention that I love the fragrance of FE Nargis and was impressed by the lingering fragrance of the cleansing shower butter.
Price – Rs. 1475 for 100ml
Packaging – Fuss-free plastic bottle with spray. Travel-friendly.
Ingredients – Only key ingredients mentioned.
Fragrance – Starts with a powdery strong floral but then mellows down and to a nice and smooth floral fragrance. It is not like the typical floral ones but it is softer and smooth. Unlike designer perfumes, the character of FE Nargis stays the same throughout the time.
Silage – Medium
Longevity – This is what surprised me. It last all through the day (around 6-8 hours). In fact, I can smell it on me at times. I love it when perfumes play hide and seek. You think they are gone and suddenly you get a whiff of that as the perfumes remind you that they are still with you.
I never expected this to happen as I have used another body mist from FE - Iced Pomegranate with Kerala Lime. I never expected this to happen as I have used another body mist from FE - Iced Pomegranate with Kerala Lime – which last long only when I layer it up with the shower gel and body cream. Whereas, I used it alone and on dry skin! Highly impressed on this point.
Verdict – If the fragrance of Nagris has mesmerized you with its soft and smooth floral fragrance then you must try this body mist. In fact, because of the lasting power, I am going to regard this as a perfume. The travel-friendly bottle is highly appreciated because we all are aware how risky it is to travel with the designer glass bottle ones. For the lasting power and the quantity provided, here I have a Forest Essentials products that justify its price. I highly recommend this.
