Whenever I go to America, I generally get excited about two things in particular; 1. The food (come to Mumma) and 2. The Shopping. I’ve already spoke about my love of American drugstores before, like I’ve said many a time, I’d be quite happy to do a tour of lots of different drugstores as I do honestly find them a little bit magical. There’s just so many different products! In fact this paragraph probably just highlights that I need to get myself a bit of a life soon.
One of my fave drugstore buys from the states has to be Body Fantasies Sprays, I came across them on my first day in Orlando back in 2014, I found this spray that was Cotton Candy flavour. I was like ‘omg I need this in my life.’ I used it the whole of the holiday, and now a new tradition of mine is to buy a new Body Fantasies spray every time I go away. When I was in NYC, I picked up the vanilla flavour and use it every day. For a body spray they smell pretty good and are so cheap too! They remind me of the Victoria’s Secret spray and Body Fantasies use quality fragrance oils which means the scent lasts longer on your skin.
I feel like we don’t really have anything like this in the UK, we have Impulse which is about as close as things get, but I’m talking an actual body spray that isn’t too kiddy-like and then isn’t too expensive like a perfume. So I was so excited to see that Body Fantasies have launched into the UK finally! I heard the news literally a couple of days after I commented on their Instagram saying ‘please come to the UK’ so you know, we probably have myself to thank for all of this.
(Totally joking, I’m not this much of a self entitled plonker)
The sprays should be in Superdrug right now, and with just four flavours launching with more to follow soon, they are perfect for throwing in your handbag. At £3.99 each, they’re also a bit of a bargain. Some of the packaging may look a little young, but none of the four scents are sickly sweet. They’re perfect like I said for having in your handbag, gym bag, bedside table, etc….
The bottles are smaller than the US versions, but maybe this will change with time.
The four scents are; Japanese Cherry Blossom (notes of cherry blossom, rose, and amber with a warm oriental scent) , Pink Vanilla Kiss Fantasy (notes of; peach, wood, musk, and soft florals, it’s quite a sweet/fruity fragrance), Twilight Mist (notes of; mandarin, magnolia, and sandalwood, which is probably the most ‘grown up’ of the fragrances) and Pink Grapefruit Fantasy (notes of; pink grapefruit, pomegranate, soft florals, and vanilla.)
My favourite from the lot? Twilight Mist.
Go give them a sniff next time you’re in Superdrug, I love the range and I’m so pleased to see the brand come to the UK finally. I’m just praying that my fave Vanilla is next to be released here!
Okay so now we just have to get more In N Out burgers, and Chipotle in every town here and I’ll be happy.
