If I can’t be at the beach on these lazy summer days, I at least want to smell like I am there – and what better beach than the gorgeous sandy paradise of Rio de Janeiro? I jumped at the chance to try Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist ($32 – 8.1 fl oz; Sephora & Sephora.com) in the hopes that I could instantly be transported with a simple spritz. You might recognize this line as Sephora’s “Rookie of the Year” for skin care last year thanks to their Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. People went crazy for the scent, so Sol de Janeiro turned it into a body mist fragrance.
Brazilians believe in “cheirosa,” something I am also pretty obsessive about – it means to smell amazing and delicious all day long. I went to a party recently and a group of people were trying to figure out who smelled so incredible…and they finally realized it was me! Highest compliment ever in my book. Brazilian Crush is a fragrance that you can use head to toe, from your hair to your skin to your clothes, and it keeps you smelling fantastic all day long.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist is mostly a mix of pistachio and salted caramel. Fragrance notes include:
It smells surprisingly spicy and not foody at all. This is an addictive scent with a definite wild side – I can totally picture women wearing this and string bikini. Whether or not you are into wearing string bikinis this year, if you like beachy, tropical scents with a bit of spice you are going to find that the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist is more of a long time love and not just a crush. Check it out at Sephora. – Lisa
