Diptyque Citronelle & Geranium Summer Body Spray Repelling Mosquitos While Making You Smell Pretty

Yes, it’s true! Diptyque Citronelle & Geranium Summer Body Spray acts to repel mosquitos. Yes, I am absolutely easily amused and I laughed when I read that. I also had to go ahead and re-read it because my brain was computing the fact this isn’t a joke.

Diptyque Citronelle & Geranium Summer Body Spray new limited edition body spray is a scented mosquito repellent. It contains essentials oils to make you smell pretty but also, are known mosquito-repelling properties. I’m obviously sweet as candy because mosquitos LOVE me. I end up becoming a feast for them if I’m outside after a certain hour. I remember one year we went camping and it really taught me a life lesson. The lesson was: Never go camping again! Ever. I came home with huge welts all over my legs and arms where mosquitos feasted from my flesh and drained my everlasting life’s blood.

Diptyque formulated the body spray with a blend of lemongrass, geranium and lemon eucalyptus with accents of neroli and orange blossom. I actually really love the smell of some of some of Diptyque herbal and floral blends and I think they use geranium really well in certain blends which is making me want this even though the fact they market it as mosquito repellent has me raising a brow or two!

Diptyque Citronelle & Geranium Summer Body Spray is available for the Summer season only and a 3.4 oz bottle is $56.

What do you think about the idea of combining fragrance with mosquito repellent benefits??!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Lol, this is a racket. The natural stuff doesn’t work at all from personal experience; it left me covered in bites. The only thing that works is DEET, or else I will be surrounded by a swarm of mosquitos.

    • Isabella Muse

      I was thinking the same but I’m intrigued just for the scent alone lol! Not so much it acting like a repellent! I’ve tried so many things to repel them and nothing works they still attack me!

      • Dot

        That makes sense””I do like the scent of geranium! I know for me, the only thing that works is multiple layers of clothing so it’s too thick to bite through, a mosquito face net, and dousing myself in DEET. Sitting in front of the campfire also helps!

        • Isabella Muse

          LOL dude a mosquito face net!? Like where do I get one! LOL! and will it make me look dorkier than I already am!?

          • Dot

            It will one hundred percent make you look dorkier, but it works! They sell them at REI!

          • Isabella Muse

            I approve of looking dorkier LOL! You know I have no shame letting my dork flag wave proudly! thanks girl! I guess I’m getting a mosquito net to wear around my head LOL!

      Some people,swear by vitamin E, but I agree with you, DEET. As to the scent, I’d love it.

    I like the idea of this but find the price a little off putting. I’ve been making my own mosquito repellent for years using these same essential oils mixed with water and alcohol. A cheap vodka works well for the alcohol part. Mosquitoes hate it. There’s a bunch of DIY recipes online to make your own. The biggest benefit is after you invest in the essential oils, you have enough on hand to make many batches. I’m sure the Diptyque smells better than mine because of the added fragrance. But 3.4 ounces goes fast in bug country. Especially if more than one person in your home is using it.

      For Diptyque I thought it sounded cheap lol! ;D I’ve tried so many things but nothing works and I still get bitten so I have doubts this will work!

      • Deb

        Haha Muse, you just have that sweet, sweet blood! The stuff I make works really well for me but of course everyone’s body chemistry is different.

        • Isabella Muse

          LOL! they just love me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve tried so many different things but I seriously get huge giant bites all over my legs and arms it’s the worst ugh!

          • MDW

            I wonder if some blood types are more susceptible?

  • Kimmwc03

    Mosquitoes love me too. Vacays to my parents’ beach house were always miserable for me.

    I guess it’s kind of like Avon’s Skin so Soft that everyone says will repel mosquitoes. Never worked for me.

    • Isabella Muse

      oh. my. god. for years my mom said Skin So Soft was the solution to mosquitoes lol! And my dad! He must be Greek with the Windex LOL! He swears my windex for itchy bites LOL!

    Mosquitos are the worst. I like the concept, but I don’t think the natural bug sprays work as well (at least on me). As someone who worked many years at a summer camp and sat through many mosquito filled campfires and literally had nightmares about the high whine in my ear in the dark, give me the chemicals! I am a fan of Natrapel, which has a deet alternative
    Apparently, a couple years ago there was a study to see what kept the mosquitos away, and deet obviously did the best, but they had thrown in a Victoria’s Secret perfume (I think Bombshell) randomly. And it did better than a lot of ‘natural’ bug sprays. It would be a fun experiment for (someone else) to do!

    • Isabella Muse

      REALLY? I’m gonna mist myself with bombshell now haha!

  • Dee

    I’m all for mosquito repellant but I don’t want to smell like it!

    I’m afraid of smelling like bug spray. Diptyque candles are awesome, but $68 is a lot of dough to shell out for a candle u don’t like. Especially when u live in the Midwest, where the nearest Diptyque selling store is 4 hours away.
