“Heaven in a bottle. Thought I’d jump on the trend with this and oh boy not one bit of regret, it smells INSANE! Definitely be buying more.”
Shoppers are raving over a ‘heaven in a bottle’ scent that has over 1,000 reviews and has dropped to less than £20 on Lookfantastic. Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 62 Perfume Mist is a fan-favourite and recognised as having the iconic scent found in the sought-after Brazilian Bum Bum Cream – but at a lower price.
It opens with nutty top notes of pistachio and almond but they’re much sweeter than they sound. There’s floral notes of heliotrope and jasmine in the heart before it mellows out into the iconic base of vanilla, salted caramel and sandalwood.
You can get the mist in either a 90ml size or for super-fans there’s a 240ml bottle so you don’t have to worry about running out. It’s got an average rating of 4.77 across 1,130 reviews, with people swearing it smells like a holiday in a bottle.
One shopper said: “I absolutely love this scent! I have kept on buying it and now I’ve invested in the huge bottle as I spray liberally! I don’t really think about using perfumes now since finding this brand.”
A second penned: “Absolute gorgeous scent, smells like holiday in a bottle. Always get compliments on it!”
A third wrote: “Heaven in a bottle. Thought I’d jump on the trend with this and oh boy not one bit of regret, it smells INSANE! Definitely be buying more.”
A fourth added: “The range itself is fabulous but this smell is the ultimate! I’ve had so many compliments whilst wearing this smell, will be repurchasing for the larger bottle as soon as my small is finished. Although the small is only 90ml it lasts so don’t be put on by the size!”
Our very own fragrance expert Jada Jones has tried this and said: “I have a pretty extensive collection of perfume and mists which means it usually takes a while for me to use up a bottle but not with this. Within just a couple of weeks I’d been reaching for it so much that I’d gotten through a third of it – a sign I love a scent.
“It is a mist rather than an EDP so it’s not the strongest scent but I put it on after using Brazilian Love shower gel from Treaclemoon and then using a neutral moisturiser and I find it lasts. Whenever I catch a whiff of it it puts a smile on my face.”
If you’re looking for a stronger hit of fragrance there is actually an Eau de Parfum version of this mist, for a 50ml bottle it will cost £66.30. If you want something more pistachio forward that’s slightly less sweet, although undeniably gourmand, then Yum Pistachio Gelato by Kayali is an excellent option.
You can get Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 62 Perfume Mist for £18.70 on Lookfantastic.
