The Body Shop Mango Eau de Toilette Perfume Fragrance Scent

Today has been such an Indian summer day, and although I thought I'd stashed away the summer scents for good, this fruity number managed to make a surprise appearance. The Body Shop Mango Eau de Toilette is one of their classic scents that has been around for years. It comes in a handbag friendly 30ml glass bottle and is super affordable at just £8.50.

This is probably one of the most pure mango scents I have ever tried. If you know the taste of Solero ice lollies, then this is a dead ringer. For that reason it is perfect for the summer. It is beautifully well-rounded, and combines sweet, juicy mangoes with a slightly creamy note, which really softens this into a wearable scent. Despite being so affordable, it definitely doesn't smell like a cheap fruity body spray.

I actually really dislike the way a lot of higher-end perfumes use the mango note. In the case of perfumes such as Escada Taj Sunset and Beyonce Heat Rush, mango is paired with deeper notes like amber, sandalwood and musk, which make the mango seem harsh, bitter and cheap smelling. The Body Shop's offering is naturally sweet, delicate and uncomplicated.

Its simplicity brings to mind a certain innocence, a time when we didn't have to worry about a thing. It is such a fun fragrance, which is uplifting and comforting all at the same time. This would be a great scent to take on holiday as it would be perfect for days when you don't want anything overpowering.

The lasting power of this perfume isn't amazing, but it is only an eau de toilette. It is worth noting that The Body Shop make pretty much every product in the same scent, so you can do fragrance layering like a boss! Try combining the perfume with the shower gel and body butter to really amp up the intensity and longevity.

Overall The Body Shop Mango Eau de Toilette is a fruity, simplistic scent, which works really well with the rest of their range. It is a great scent to wear in the summer, or even on cooler days when you are dreaming of sunnier times. If mango isn't your thing, The Body Shop have tons of other scents in the range, including Strawberry, florals Moringa and Honeymania and the more masculine Shea. There really is something for everyone in this range and for £8.50 you really can't fault the price.
