When it comes to the best perfumes for women, body sprays are often overlooked. I don’t know about you, but until recently, whenever I would think about body sprays, I would be taken back to the Victoria’s Secret Bare Vanilla Body Mist that I would layer on as a teenager before heading to school. However, this underrated fragrance category has had a serious upgrade in the past few years, with brands such as Tom Ford and Diptyque creating high-end, luxury body sprays for women that are now front-runners in my perfume collection.
You see, body sprays happen to be a much more affordable way of trying out your favourite brands. For example, a Diptyque perfume may set you back a cool £125, but the brand’s body spray retails for £50. Not only that, but they’re also a lot easier to throw in your handbag, meaning that you can easily top up your fragrance throughout the day.
In fact, body mists are my secret weapon to smelling good all day long, as I can easily give myself a quick spritz without the scent becoming over-bearing or proving to be a very costly price per pump.
