|The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Strawberry Kiss Perfume EDT Review|
Happy Valentine's Day to all those celebrating.💟 I am home now in my jammies trying to finish my birthday cake as I write this. No cheesy romantic posts but this post have strawberries, perfume and a kiss in the name. So, I think that will do? No?😀
The strawberry range from The Body Shop is very famous. They do have Japanese Cherry Blossom as well as part of the Voyage collection. (Talking about voyage collection, I like their English Dawn Gardenia.) Recently, they created this line with strawberry and cherry blossom to give a mix of floral with fruity. The range has shower gel, body butter, and this EDT.
Price: ₹1,995 for 50ml (Available in some offer or another all the time).
Packaging: The glass dome crystal bottle is my favorite among all TBS perfumes. It looks elegant and classy. It has an acrylic cap with the logo etched on it.
Fragrance: It starts with more strawberry to me than cherry blossom. But, the sharp tartness of the strawberry line is missing here. Cherry blossom is there somewhere but nothing direct - a tad more prominent as it mellows down. In the end, it leaves with a muskier feel.
Sillage: Weak. Can be worn in closed spaces without giving people surrounding you headaches :)
Longevity: Unfortunately, most TBS perfumes fail here. And this is no different. The max I have got from this is 3-4 hours and that too on a very good day. But, this is an EDT, and my expectations should not be higher. 😟
Overall: Do not go for it if you are a cherry blossom or strawberry lover. Do not mix the two fragrances and imagine how the two should feel like. This is still more suitable for younger girls - a simple and sweet scent with a mix of floral and fruits. This a perfume to gift a girl maturing from all the strawberry scented lip glosses willing to try a bit grown-up scent. But, who am I kidding? I still enjoy strawberry shower gel when strawberries are in season 😊
