What body splash are you using?

A body splash, commonly known as a body mist or body spray is like a perfume but does not contain a high percentage of fragrance oils thus milder that perfume. They are usually light and cheaper than quality perfumes.

Without the overpowering element of a perfume or cologne, the right body splash could make you feel refreshed.

If you love pretty scents yet cologne or perfume feels overpowering for you, why not try body mists?

Many women complain that their body sprays does not last long while at the same time, spraying excess of it will actually not help.

In fact, it can even irritate especially when you are allergic. You would not want to mess with allergens dear!

So better prepare your skin adequately before getting the spritz to work for you.

Here’s how!

What Body Splash Do You Use? How Do You Make It Last Longer?

1. Take a thorough shower with a complimentary gel or soap.

Scents will always last longer when used on moist skin so always get a proper shower first.

Embrace complimentary body washes or soaps when showering.

I mean, shower with a body wash or soap with the same fragrance as your spray to prepare your skin.

But if you cannot find the complimentary scent to shower with, go for an unscented soap so that eventually, the spray’s fumes can be profound.

This is called the art of layering fragrances since some scents are not as long lasting.

2. Use a complimentary lotion.

Once you have toweled off, apply a body lotion with the same scent all over your body while paying attention to the points that you’ll wear your body splash.

3. Wear your body splash on moist skin that has been oiled properly.

After your shower, pores tend to open up hence readily absorb the body mist to ensure it lasts longer.

4.Spritz on your pulse points.

Pulse points are known to harbor scents so always spritz on the wrists, inside of your elbows, front of the neck, back of the knees and even between the breasts.

While spraying, allow a foot distance when spraying towards yourself.

This will ensure that the spray covers the entire skin since air around disperses it around.

If you use it as an underarm deodorant, you might still suffer from sweat so better use both the deodorant and the body mist.

5.Ensure the fragrance has dried on your skin before dressing up.

Give yourself a minute for the scent to dry up on your skin before actually dressing up; unless you want your clothes to wipe off the scent from your skin.

6.Spray your clean hair too.

You can also wear the spray on your hair although not directly since it can dry out your hair.

What you should do is take the hair brush and spritz on it before combing your hair to give it a similar beautiful scent.

7. To ensure the body mist lasts throughout the day, spray on a small cotton ball or on ear buds and stash them in your bra or handbag for the fragrance fumes to last longer.

8.Spritz your clothing carefully too if you only require a little scent or even if you want an overall scent.

How? Spray a few inches away from your clothing; I mean, spritz in the air and walk through the mist to scent your clothes.


Depending on the occasion, I consider the type of scent I wear.

Currently, I use body splash from Dear Body; precisely: Pink Velvet body splash and Dream Chiffon body splash ,Signature Collection, Body Luxuries.

I use either of the two body sprays whenever I don’t want to wear perfume.

Of course, the very first of my body mists was this pretty fragrance from Dear Body.

I wear the floral body splash whenever I’m off to dates.

It’s fruity, zesty, floral and even nutty fragrance is what one would need for a feminine scent anytime!

Honestly, the splash is what one would wear over and over since its scent can be so intoxicating.

Packed with lush cherry blossom and some juicy notes, the splash can give you a fine feminine finish of that calming yet soft scent.

It’s a beautiful scent that you’d actually need for your scent collection!

Lovers of floral scents are enthusiastic, blooming with positive imagination and very cheerful while fruity scent admirers are the classic adventurous ones with a carefree nature, who cherish being the center of attraction. Is this you? ‘Cause I can call myself this sweetheart!


All right ladies, if you love all things tropical like I do, the Pink Velvet is for you!

The amazing rush of fresh exotic fruit scent will transport you right to this Dear Body’s body spray.

Wanna smell like oranges, lime and lemons all the way? Then you’ll love this airy, crispy and zingy scent!

Pink Velvet is also a fresh yet musky fragrance; one I wear during the day when I don’t want to wear perfume.

And again, lovers of musky scents are sexy, mysterious and always a step ahead of everyone while fresh scents offer a pleasing balance and aroma thus speak for those who are calm, carefree and effortlessly cool.

You’d actually want to be described like this, right? I surely do no wonder my love for this fresh yet musky scent.

The best thing about all these scents is that they are all cruelty-free.

I mean, no animal testing is done for these fragrances at any point during production.

Many prefer vegan scents so if you are one of them, then you are sorted!

Just like a little black dress, a signature scent can stick with you for life.

One you find ‘The Scent’ for you, it can be hard to let it go; it becomes part of your essence and spritzing it becomes a routine.

Just as it is for me since I’ve been using these two for a year now! I love them for being soft too!

  1. Aditya Tiwari says

    Love those tips which you have given. But I think the time is near that few of us actually consider body mists. If we got this, people would not worried about having a shower time, but not saying that they should not do.

    • Dalene Ekirapa says

      Haha…I get you Aditya. Many would actually skip shower but unfortunately, body mists don’t last long thus need to be complimented by a shower and other lotions. So we’ll catch up with them. Ha-ha!
      Anyway, thanks for stopping by!

    • Dalene Ekirapa says

      I’m glad you appreciate this. I’m certain that if you find the right scent, you’ll trade it for your cologne!
      Anyway, glad you stopped by!

  2. Kristen Kirk says

    I’ve never used a body splash, but I like the idea of it being lighter than perfume. I also love the idea of spraying some in your hair to give it an extra pop.

    • Dalene Ekirapa says

      I can’t agree more Kristen. I love body splash too because it’s lighter for someone like me who is sort of allergic to strong scents.

  3. Monidipa says

    I have heard of body mists and I have heard they leave a sexy effect on you. I don’t know if that’s true or not. Never tried it. I guess. I shall give it a try..

  4. Adriana Lopez says

    I rarely use body spray since I wear perfume but it makes sense to use it on weekdays as a lighter option. Like the idea on spraying it on the hair.

  5. Matt says

  8. Sarah Bailey says

    I have to admit I’ve not worn body mists in years! I haven’t really thought of them since my teens, an interesting idea to go back to though – perhaps I’ll give it a try.

    • Dalene Ekirapa says

      You’d also want to give them a try Sarah; at times, we forget them because we are so much into perfumes as much as they are a great subtle option.

  9. Nessy says

    I think I was in high school when I last used body splash. And I agree, the scent is not as strong compared to perfumes. It’s great if you want to smell good and fresh right after shower. 🙂

  10. Hannah Marie says

    Just like the beauty hacked I have read before, oil based perfume makes the scent last long. And so, for spray scents I put unscented oil or petroleum jelly on my pulse points. Thanks for these additional tips.

  11. Elizabeth O says

    This seems like a really ideal product indeed. I like the thought of using a body mist it would be nice to smell lovely all the time!

  16. Vaibhav Mehta says

    some useful tips for applying the mist. I am sometimes reluctant to use perfume coz they’re too strong. So I think, body mist should help me

    • Dalene Ekirapa says

      Body mists will surely be much better for you too Mehta. Since I use perfumes on special occasions only, body mists come in handy for me.
      Glad you dropped by!

  17. Ruth I. says

    I use PINK body mist. It is long lasting. And the scent really captures everyone’s attention when they smell it. Thanks for these tips.

  18. Terri Beavers says

    I used to wear body splashes a lot and have just now restarted using them. I’m not sure I’ve even tried a vegan mist before but now I want to.

  19. Jade says

    This is so interesting! I don’t wear perfume because it’s too overpowering and smells unnatural! But this body splash sounds like the perfect alternative! A great and informative post! I’ll have to give it a go 🙂

  20. Jennifer Prince says

    I actually never use body splash. I may have to give it a try. It’s a nice alternative to a traditional perfume, too.

  21. Jessica Terry says

    I do occasionally enjoy a great body mist. As a busy mom of 5, these help me stay fresher during my busy days and I love that there are some really great brands and scents for almost any body type.

  22. David Elliott says

    I never thought about body splash I use and how it would help me keep scents on my body before. But it does make a lot of sense. I don’t use a specific one. Mostly I use some kind of soap.

  23. kim says

    Love your ideas for making body splash last longer. I personally am a huge fan of Bath and Body Works fragrances.

  24. Blair Villanueva says

    Having this hot and humid weather, it is always nice to have a splash of mild scent. Most of the time, I sprayed some to my hair 😀
