I have been wanting to try out the perfume mists from Sol de Janeiro for a while. They have a variety of them and each one seems to sound just utterly delicious. Seriously, listen to the description of the Brazilian Crush Cheirosa #62.
The scent that started it all. Irresistible and sunny, this warm gourmand fragrance is the ultimate expression of Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian spirit. Experience the sweet sensation of our iconic perfume mist, with delicious notes of pistachio, salted caramel, and vanilla. Feels like summer all year round.
Cheirosa 62 Perfume Mist is inspired by the year 1962, when we fell for the Girl from Ipanema and the iconic beach culture of Brazil. Like the sundrenched wonder of Rio, you just can’t get enough.
Does that not sound utterly delicious? Here is the thing, I also like the scent of the Bum Bum cream, which is their original body lotion. This is the same scent. It literally is the scent of the cream turned into a body spray. which is odd, since I’ve always felt the cream smells a bit like buttered popcorn.
Despite the fact that in a side by side sniff test they smell identical, when sprayed on the wrist, this scent has a slightly more caramelly undertone. It isn’t overly sweet though, it is very much a summer time scent. If i close my eyes i can see myself sitting next to a pool. Surprisingly it is not a tropical beach at a high end resort though. when I close my eyes and smell I am somehow transported back to the community pool of my childhood. Our community pool was right next to a picnic area with places for grilling out and in the parking lot there were always snack vendors from ice cream cones to bags of popcorn.
Perhaps that is why. And perhaps it is also a scent that is fresh and somehow innocent smelling. It smells more of childhood fun than it does of resort life. I did enjoy the memory flash back actually.
So the scent was familiar, in many ways, but how did it perform as a perfume. Really well actually. I spritzed on the wrist and took it for a wear test. Even though it is a hair and body mist, i wanted to treat it as a perfume for the first few days. On the wrist it created a light warm scent that stayed with me all day long. It did fade back a bit a they day wore on. When I first sprayed it, I had a bit of a scent cloud around me. It wasn’t massive and it wasn’t a dense cloying cloud of scent. It was light, but it was detectable from a few feet away.
An hour later and maybe a foot away someone could smell it. An hour later and someone would have to be well within my personal space bubble to scent it. There the scent remained. As the day went on I could catch teasing whiffs of scent as i moved around, but it wasn’t a constant scent cloud. And when I went to get ready for my night time shower I could still scent it on my wrist if I help my wrist o my nose.
Clearly the scent will have more of an impact if you use it as an all over body spray and hair mist. Which I did try and liked. I would suggest doing that in an out door space and making sure no one is scent sensitive because it will be very noticeable. I did like having the scent in my hair when i went to a barbeque though. It made me feel ready for summer and oddly no one commented on the scent, but I did get a lot more comments about summer vacations that were coming up. It was as though the scent triggered thoughts of summer rather than thoughts of scent. I was very impressed with it this week and will happily use up this travel sized bottle throughout the summer. I will also probably repurchase it and look into other scents from Sol de Janeiro. It was nice as a perfume but I really liked having it in my hair as well. I know that right now they also have some limited time scents available so I might be looking into those sooner as well. Over all, I was very impressed with the Brazilian Crush Chrirosa #62 from Sol De Janeiro and can’t wait to try out more scents for hair and body from the brand.
