What Are Perfume Oils? Signature Scents? Featuring The Body Shop Perfume Oil in Indian Night Jasmine


I am forever on a quest to find my signature fragrance. Glossy fashion magazines, pop culture websites and even celebrity interviews are forever harping on how important it is to find your signature scent and stick with it...






While yes I do agree on how 'classy' and 'grown-up' all of it sounds, I am however a self-proclaimed free-spirit and tying myself down to a particular fragrance sounds like a life sentence to me... Ok probably not as bad but it is extremely difficult for me stick to one thing and not get tempted to "stray", if you know what I mean :P

However, Indian Night Jasmine by The Body Shop is one fragrance that I am drawn to time and again and hence its a staple on my fragrance tray. I use it more often than I do others and it kind of holds a special place in my heart :) I had started out with Indian Night Jasmine in the form of body lotion and when I really loved the fragrance I bought the body mist, 3 bottles one after another and then I graduated to Perfume Oils (on my 3rd vial currently)...



What Are Perfume Oils Anyway?

Perfume Oils are exactly what they are called. They are perfumes in oil form. They are perfumed or fragrance oils that ideally have zero or no alcohol content. They are more concentrated forms of perfume sprays or body mists and are great way to ensure that the fragrance on you last longer than it would with a fragrance spray.
Perfume oils are the basis of all fragrance spray forms.

Why Should I Use Perfume Oils?

Even though it is in the end a matter of personal preference, I thought it prudent to list down the factors that make Perfume Oils my preferred mode of using a fragrance. Here goes...
  1. They stay longer on you. Since they are more concentrated and do not contain any alcohol, they tend to 'stick' to where they've been applied.
  2. They are not overpowering as some perfumes are. You know the kinds that tell people that you are about to enter the room even though you are probably a mile away? Yeah that's overpowering and perfume oils save you from that embarrassment... Since they mingle with your skin, it emanates a subtle and an understated personal fragrance when some leans in to whisper something in your ear or when you meet a long lost friend with a warm hug...
  3. They need not only be applied on the skin. I mean yes fragrances are to be applied to pulse points on your body but my favorite way to use a perfume oil is in the strands of my hair. hair holds on to scents much longer and keeps it truer to its original smell.
  4. I also use perfume oils as bath oils... A few drops in a hot bucket of water is my perfect way to relax. It is therapeutic as well as forms the base to the technique of fragrance layering.

Coming back to The Body Shop Perfume Oil in Indian Night Jasmine, the fragrance is mild and warm. It is surprisingly not very floral too. Its mysterious and sensual and reminds me of warm sultry nights on the banks of a lotus pond where I am wearing something light and flowy and my hair is being lightly caressed by a warm fragrant breeze... That is exactly how I would describe the fragrance :)

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
