There’s nothing better than smelling completely delectable, so much so that people stop you in the street to say that you smell great.

The answer? Layering your favourite perfumes with an elevated body mist. Body mists have come a long way since the Impulse sprays Millennials will remember misting in worrying levels all over themselves before hopping on the bus to school.

These are fragrances that have been perfectly formulated by practiced perfumers into a water-based mist. Body mists are slightly different than perfumes, which are more concentrated. They allow for more coverage, but slightly less lasting power.

So, which are the best body mists that you can spritz and walk through on a daily basis? Consider this your official guide.
