Snow Fairy Body Spray

The Lush community is always torn around Christmas time: those who relish in everything Snow Fairy, and those that roll their eyes and turn the other cheek. While I used to be the former, I am probably far more like the latter group now - although there are still a few formats that get my heart racing and my mouth salivating. 

Snow Fairy Body Spray is a given really, especially with all of the body sprays that have been released this year so far. We've had Twilight; we've been gifted with Rose Jam, so it makes sense that this had to be one of the next ones to rear its head. While many were turn their cheek at this, you cannot deny that £15 for this large bottle of seasonal fragrance is an absolute bargain, and guaranteed to please those fans around the county that have been pining after the perfume for years. 

While I was expecting it to replicate the perfume, I found that the fragrance of the spray was actually far closer to the original body conditioner than anything else. Much like the seasonal gel and last year's Body Conditioner, this spray is super sweet and playful, and may be considered far too sickly some people's tastes. 

For those who aren't familiar with the scent family, Snow Fairy is supposed to smell like pear drops and bubblegum; cotton candy and vanilla musk. There is something both youthful and slightly synthetic about the fragrance. You can smell a syrup-like fruitiness, which does make it very much like a fresh bag of candy floss to my nose, yet the inclusion of the vanilla absolute gives it musky undertones that are a little the delicate sifting of icing sugar. 

Far from being one of Lush's most complex aromas, Snow Fairy Body Spray is still a lovely addition to the family. What I liked about this spray was that it stayed present on my body for a good many hours, and I appreciated the way the warmth of my skin developed the different notes over time. While the initial smell impressed me more than the liquid perfume did, as it was stronger, richer and sweeter, I also liked that the spray matures far better over time. The vanilla and synthetic musk definitely come forward more over the first 30 minutes and create a sweet, warming fragrance that invites short bursts of scent for a good 2-3 hours.

Ultimately, Snow Fairy Body Spray was never going to be a product that I would be overly excited about. However, the fragrance has definitely ignited an interest in the scent family again, and I have been enjoying the shower gel and Body Conditioner alongside this as a result of the spray. Given the pattern of body sprays that have been created so far, it's only a matter of time before Honey I Washed The Kids and The Comforter are created, I'm sure.
