I love H&M. Like really love it. The majority of my clothes are from there and I love browsing their homeware department.
I’ve always liked perusing their till bits and bobs. You know the things you don’t realise you need until you see? Like cute makeup bags, more socks, or bubble bath.
Back in circa 2006, before H&M launched their beauty range, I would wonder over to MAC on my lunch break and then into H&M which was next door. I developed the ability to zone in on anything Hello Kitty related and one afternoon when queuing, I spotted some Hello Kitty products by the H&M tills. At that time they had a whole range of ‘pamper’ HK products, body creams, lip balms and body mists.
All my wages for my part-time job went on MAC, so the only perfume I owned was a Britney Spears Curious I’d had one Christmas. I purchased the body mists and fell in love with them. I associate them with Summer and a more carefree time.
Somewhere along the line H&M stopped making those sprays. Or I got older. Maybe both. I forgot about them entirely until I read Yiota‘s post (which I now can’t find, maybe I dreamt this!) mentioning H&M mists.
H&M Body Mists
I can’t pass H&M without gravitating inside and sure enough, there they were. Just like old times. A Hello Kitty wouldn’t go amiss on the packaging but otherwise they still ooze Summer to me. With bright packaging and floral ingredients. I picked up Rose Reverie, made with frangipani (not going to lie, I thought that was some sort of cake), damask rose and white musk.
These body mists are perfect for holidays or days at the beach when perfume would be wasted as you’ll be jumping in and out of the sea. They have a gorgeous scent once the spray has settled but I definitely noticed a chemical scent that I don’t recall from the original ones.
The scent is very subtle but at £2.99 you can afford to be quick generous with how much you apply. Whilst these aren’t going to replace my perfume anytime soon, I have a nostalgic love for them and think they’ll be great in the Summer.
The body mists are available in three other scents: Cashmere Haze, Midnight Muse and Caribbean Crush.
