Much to my delight Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Fragrance Mist has arrived at my local store. Eucalyptus Spearmint Fragrance Mist is one of three new scents that were candle scents but are now available in a line of bath and body products.
Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint has had it’s fair run across the board being available as a candle, lipgloss, in a range of C.O. Bigelow products, and even available in the Stress Relief Aromatherapy products so it isn’t necessarily “new” to the bath and body scene. It does however, get a small bit of attention recently as Bath & Body Works repromoted it in a new range of products including a fragrance mist.
Along with Mahogany Teakwood I’d say Eucalyptus Spearmint is most definitely one of my favorite scents from Bath & Body Works. One would think eucalyptus would be an intrusive note! I know I think of my dear old mom and Vicks whenever eucalyptus comes into play. That woman thinks Vicks is the cure all for everything!
But this isn’t only eucalyptus! Bath & Body Works combines it with fresh spearmint and a mix of herb and floral notes which give this a nice masculine edge. It’s a funny thing as I love fruity sweet fragrances. The sweeter the better for me! But something else I adore are notes which give the fragrances a unisex kinda feel. Eucalyptus Spearmint is the type of fragrance that will smell gorgeous on either a man or a woman. To be it’s like a hard hug from a boyfriend or a husband that’s wear something gorgeous cologne. You ever getting one of those hugs from your boyfriend and his scent just lingers on your clothes, in your hair….that’s kinda the feel of Eucalyptus Spearmint!
Along with eucalyptus and spearmint this has subtle touches of jasmine, sage, and an warm musk. It’s mint, masculine, and very dare I say sexy?
Unfortunately, like many Bath & Body Works Fragrance Mist it fades fast on me even with layering. The fragrance is just so very weak and I can only get about an hour’s worth of wear from it before it fades into the great big abyss. I can literally pour a bottle over my head and it likely wouldn’t me through the day. Sigh. Bath & Body Works reformulated their fragrance mists a few years ago but unfortunately they still haven’t yet gotten it right in my humblest! Perhaps one day they’ll launch Eucalyptus Spearmint in a perfume format that’s a bit stronger and wears a little longer.
For now, I’ll love all of the Eucalyptus Spearmint Fragrance Mist despite its flaws.
Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Fragrance Mist is available in stores now or at bathandbodyworks.com.
