stay fresh Body mist
This light cologne smells elegant and feminine. Great for every day use.
According to their website, Althea is the first e-commerce company to have sourcing capabilities based in Korea and all customer-interfacing localised. Aside from authentic Korean products, it also created its own brand of beauty cosmetics. One such product is the Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist, a collaboratory creation with Titi Kamal.
Before y’all think dirty thoughts because unfortunately, Titi is more known here in the Philippines as the Filipino word for the male genital organ, let me clarify that Titi is most definitely NOT that, and it’s a person, a female one to be exact. Titi Kamal is a beautiful and famous Indonesian actress and singer.
Now that that’s all clear, back to the mist. I bought mine HERE for half the price compared to that posted in the official Althea website, only because I didn’t know there was an official website which delivers locally. The product is delightfully authentic, so I’d saved a lot because I also made use of my free shipping coupon.
What I Like
I like that it’s metal with a hard plastic cap and aluminum spray, not like Bath and Body’s plastic ones. But it’s not heavy to carry around, and it’s classy and elegant. I also like the sleek and clean design of the print, although the back is in Korean and has no translation in English.
I love the scent! It’s feminine but cheerful. According to Althea’s product description, this is “a feminine mix of fruity and floral scents, of sweet orange and peach, followed by an ever-graceful echo of rosy floral notes.” But for me, it smells like the ylang-ylang flower. It comes out a tad strong at first application, but quickly dissipates.
It really is non-sticky and feels comfortable on the skin as claimed.
What I Don’t Like
The scent didn’t last very long on my skin, only less than an hour. I have to reapply. Factors such as my skin’s pH and the summer heat could have attributed to that. I put some on my clothes too, though, and I noticed there was still a lingering scent hours after.
