Review: Iraya Himalayan Floral Body Mist

June 15, 2015

Summer is slowly disappearing here in Bangalore with occasional rain and cloudy days taking its place. But you know how summer can zap your energy and leave you tired and worn out. These are the times when even a glass of chilled water seems like the most delicious drink in the whole world. So also, a spritz of heavenly-smelling mist holds the power to lift up your spirit, and refresh your body and mind like nothing else can.

Iraya has two body mists, the Himalayan Floral (the one being reviewed), and the Pomegranate and Mint one. But before reading the review, let us see what a body mist is? A body mist is supposed to be light, subtle, airy and fresh unlike a perfume that tends to be more heavy. It should ideally be used right after a shower-and-towel-dry as the open pores retain the scent longer. So how does the Iraya body mist fare? Let us find out...

My Experience


The body mist is a pleasing orange-coloured liquid inside the bottle. It has a heavenly rose-sandal fragrance that I just love. It actually feels very soothing and refreshing. However, it stays for just a couple of hours. I wish it stayed for some more time. Considering that it is almost fully natural, it is great to use in summer when frequent spritzes would cool you down and freshen you up. I am almost halfway through with this bottle. And I feel it is a feel-good, feel-happy kind of scent.

The bottle is not very sturdy though. So you would need to transfer it to another spray bottle when you are travelling.

Overall Impression

Would have loved to repurchase this if it were more long-lasting. But then it is a body mist and not a perfume. Also, I am not sure if that would be possible with an all-natural ingredient list. This is one product where I would not mind even if they added some mild chemicals to make the scent last longer! If you enjoy a good spritzing every couple of hours, then surely get the Iraya Himalayan Floral body mist. It is a heavenly scent for sure!
