Product Review: Allegra Rhodes Sweet Apple & Grapefruit Body Mist

I am not one of those who have a signature scent. I simply believe that there are too many nice fragrances to be explored to limited yourself to only one. Consequently I have a large, and constantly growing perfume collection, so I naturally happily accepted when I was asked to trial the *Allegra Rhodes Sweet Apple & Grapefruit Body Mist. Here are my thoughts;

What They Say:
"Cooling and fresh, a spritz of Allegra Rhodes fine fragrance body spray is the perfect every day treat for all over decadence. Our intoxicating body mists are subtle enough to wear at any time of day but still deliciously head turning and distinctive. No matter if you’re in the office, relaxing at the beach or sipping cocktails, your alluring fragrance is sure to accentuate your knock-out personality. A luscious fuse of candied Apple with refreshingly zesty Grapefruit makes this fragrance crisp, sweet and delightfully reviving. A mélange of Tuberose, Blonde Woods and White Amber are present to ensure the sweetness lingers."

RRP: $29.95 (175ml) – Available from Allegra Rhodes Online

What I Say:
I recently reviewed the Allegra Rhodes Ocean Mist Body Wash and the Sweet Apple & Grapefruit Hand and Nail Cream, and I absolutely love both for their beautiful fragrance, so I was so excited to also be trialling the Allegra Rhodes Sweet Apple & Grapefruit Body Mist.

Allegra Rhodes believes that "happiness and gorgeousness isn’t reserved only for the special occasions or the rich and famous. Every woman deserves to enjoy true luxury every day, at the tip of her fingers."

The Allegra Rhodes products are made using hand-picked Eau de Parfum based fragrances, making them smell absolutely heavenly. And on top of that, the products are certified parabens-free and sulphate-free. The company is Australian owned, the products made in Australia, and of course not tested on animals!  Huge bonus points all around!

The body mist comes in a stylish packaging with a gorgeous monochrome black and white pattern on the outer box. The box also has pale green sides, which represent the Sweet Apple & Grapefruit scented products, while other scents available in the range (Red Lychee, Sweet Apple & Grapefruit and Cherry Blossom) are represented by other colours.

As I mentioned in my review of the Sweet Apple & Grapefruit Hand and Nail Cream, I absolutely love this scent. It contains bittersweet grapefruit that has been mixed with candied rosy apple, making it smell fresh and summery. It has heart notes of white amber, tuberose and blonde woods, for a reviving and energetic fruity cocktail. And in spite of containing grapefruit, for me, the sweet apple is the strongest scent, and it actually reminds me of one of my favourite perfumes, DKNY Be Delicious!

The actual body mist come in a simple but stylish and stylish square plastic bottle, with a black pump. The bottle has simple black product labels, which makes look elegant and luxurious, although being a fragrance, it would have seemed even more luxurious if it had actually come in glass bottle instead.

I believe that the body mist is designed to be a day fragrance that can be layered with the other body products such as the shower gel and body lotion, and in spite of the Body Mist not being an Eau de Parfum, or even an Eau the Toilette, it is surprisingly strongly scented, due to it being Eau de Parfum based, so it has a very good staying power, so I can even smell it in the end of the day.

The Allegra Rhodes Sweet Apple & Grapefruit Body Mist will set you back $29.95 for a large 175ml bottle, which personally I find is a reasonable price for such a large bottle for such a good quality fragrance in such a large bottle. And as it is so concentrated, the huge bottle will last you a long time.

What I Like:
  • The gorgeous scent which is similar to one of my favourite perfumes
  • The price
  • The stylish and simplistic design of the packaging

What I Don’t Like:
  • It’s not that I don’t like it, but while the plastic pump bottle is functional, the body mist would have appeared more luxurious if it had come in a glass bottle (although this would no doubt mean a higher price tag too!)

Overall, this is another fantastic product from Allegra Rhodes, and I will thoroughly enjoy using this body mist as a daytime fragrance throughout spring and summer.
