A while ago I purchased another scent from the Voyage collection from The Body Shop. This time I bought the Japanese Cherry Blossom scent. Lately I’ve been really into the scent of cherry blossom and therefore I thought this might be a great product for me to try. I haven’t tried a lot of the eau de toilettes by The Body Shop so I was very excited to give it a try and see how strong and long lasting it would be. If you’re interested in finding out, make sure you continue reading!
The Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette by The Body Shop comes in this really pretty rectangular shaped bottle. I believe they actually changed up the bottles and that this is the old packaging, but I’m not completely sure about that. The packaging is very simple and elegant. It has some flowers printed on the back which you can see from the front as well, which creates a very pretty effect.
The bottle contains 50 ml of perfume which is quite a lot. There is also a 100 ml version available, but since I never finish a perfume I felt like 50 ml would be enough for me.
According to The Body Shop the Japanese Cherry Blossom perfume is a subtle sweet floral scent that takes you on a trip to the Japanese gardens that are full of cherry blossom. I think they described that really, really well. Of course the trip is a bit extreme, but you get the point.
The thing I really like about this scent is how settle it is. Because of that it’s a very elegant scent. It’s not too extreme, to heavy, too fresh, too fruity or too harsh. It’s very delicate. And because it’s so delicate it’s the perfect scent for pretty much every occasion where you don’t want your perfume to be too overwhelming.
Because it’s an eau de toilette and not an eau de perfume it’s not as long lasting, but in my experience this scent does last quite long. I usually spray a bit of it on my clothes and a bit behind my ear and if you do that the scent will last for about half a day. It’s not super impressive, but for a subtle scent like this one it ain’t bad either.
Even though you do need to re-spritz yourself throughout the day if you want to smell like Japanese Cherry Blossom all day, this product will last you for such a long time. I’ve used it quite a lot the past couple of weeks and it still seems like it’s brand new. So that’s definitely a big fat plus!
Overall I really like this perfume. I love the scent. I love how unique and delicate and especially how elegant it is. It’s nothing too crazy but it is a really nice scent. It’s perfect for every day wear and it lasts a pretty long amount of time. I’m really glad I decided to give it a chance and I highly recommend doing so too!
The TBS Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette is available online and in stores for €27,- (50 ml).
