Memo Best Body Mists Hero 16x9

Words by Samantha Brigden

If you’ve been anywhere online recently, you’ve probably noticed a new generation of fragrance obsessives professing their love for the body mist. It’s a familiar sight for those who lived through Y2K, but the modern take isn’t just for Gen A.

To find out why everyone is obsessed, we tapped Beauty Board fragrance expert Steven Glyde. “A body mist is simply a lighter fragrance expression than your typical EDP or EDT,” he explains. “They contain a lower concentration of perfume oil, which is what makes them so special! They can be sprayed onto clothes and through hair with peace of mind.”

This easy-breezy nature makes mists “an incredible entry point for those getting started with fragrance,” but Glyde says they’re ideal for anyone who wants “a carefree scent you can throw on anywhere, anytime.”

Plus, they’re the perfect platform to experiment: “Perfumers can play with notes that can be tricky in higher concentrations. Think: edible, sugary scents.”

Ready to get spritzing? Meet our top picks…

While we’ll always have a soft spot for the caramel-y notes of Cheirosa 62 (arguably the spark behind the current body mist revival), the Brazilian-inspired brand’s latest launch offers strong competition. Glyde describes it as “a little understated, but still perfectly sweet – the sugared violet and sandalwood notes take the vanilla to a new level.”

The lightweight, on-the-go qualities of a mist seem to be a natural fit for an oceanic, sun-soaked vibe. Ellis Brooklyn clearly feel the same, if this refreshing citrus blend is anything to go by. In Glyde’s words: “Is digging your feet into the sand and breathing in beachy air on your list of favourite things? This will get you there – year round!”

A callback to the more sugary roots of the trend, this is the smoothie of the spritz world. Glyde describes it as “a fruity citrus that smells utterly delicious.” His insider tip? Layer it with the Ellis Brooklyn above to “freshen up that salty quality”.

“If you haven't found a body mist you love, this might be it,” Glyde proclaims. We can see why – elevated and unique (like everything the luxury French perfume house creates), this soft tuberose scent “brings a real floral elegance to the mist space.”

You know those chic yoga studios that bring on instant calm? This is exactly what they smell like. Glyde explains, “It’s designed to inspire stillness and feelings of security. Perfect for meditative times in your life, or as a winter choice.”
