This is another of my Christmas gifts from my lovely boyfriend: the Body Shop Shea Eau de Toilette. I have worn it virtually every day since Christmas which is why there is visibly less than a full bottle in the picture! At first when you spray it, the eau de toilette has a very strong alcoholic smell, but that quickly fades into a gorgeous subtle nutty scent. It is sweet, without being sickly sweet, and earthy. It is honestly just so delicious, I can’t stop smelling it as I am writing it! The fragrance is really light, natural and fresh when you wear it. It’s perfect for day time wear – you’ll smell amazing but people won’t even realise you are wearing perfume.
My only disappointment is that the scent doesn’t last as long as I would like. However, I have heard that if you layer it over the Shea shower cream and/or the Shea body butter, the scent lasts a lot longer. I am keen to try that, although I might also try layering it over my Coconut or Chocomania body butters to see what exotic creation I can make! (I am Body Shop obsessed, not sponsored, honest!)
