Beauty Review: The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Eau de Cologne

After reviewing some skincare, now I want to review one of my most favorite perfumes that I really, really, really like! Also from one of my favorite beauty brands, The Body Shop; FUJI GREEN TEA™ EAU DE COLOGNE.

I like The Body Shop product because they are environment-friendly and affordable. They also often offer sale and discounts too! But you must have realized that fragrances (perfumes, not body mist) are rarely included in those events, especially the 100ml big sizes, haven’t you? They usually give more discounts on body butters, lotions, soaps, and body mists.

So a couple weeks ago, when I finally saw for the first time ever this Fuji Green Tea perfume was on ‘Buy 1 Get 1’ sale, I didn’t think further and bought 2 in a second. And you know what? I still have another bottle at home, so right now I have 3 bottles of this perfume 😀

You might think it was just weird; what an unnecessary purchase to buy a lot of same perfumes at once. Why? What do I need them for? Wouldn’t I be bored to use just one perfume all the time?

Well, read carefully then, because through this review I will tell you why I think it’s worth to keep 3 bottles of this perfume in your closet 😉

Let’s begin the review!

Since the release in mid 2015, I fell in love at first smell with this perfume, and I was thinking about making it my signature scent.

A ‘signature scent’ is a scent from the perfume you like a lot, and you wear it all the time. It will make people around you aware of the smell of that perfume whenever your around and automatically associate that smell with your presence. You can tell that you have the best signature scent if people smell that scent anywhere and they instantly remember you, even when you’re not there. It means the scent meets your personality perfectly that it leaves deep impression to people around you.

I was thinking to make this perfume my signature scent, and I think I did it well. I finally bought it in August 2015 as birthday present to myself.

Fuji Green Tea perfume is so fresh! Perfect for summer (or in my case; hot weather in Jakarta :P) and holiday. The main element of this perfume is awakening and reviving fresh citrus scent with a touch of sophistication of elegant, pure and classy Japanese green tea, as pictured in their sacred traditional tea rituals. Calm and elegant, yet also fresh and awakening; it’s everything you need from a perfume, especially when you live in tropical weather.

It’s the perfect blend of green tea, bergamot, lemon and mandarin top notes with a floral heart of camellia, jasmine and violet. A classic scent for daytime sophistication! It gives you fresh citrus scent at first, and after a while becomes soft floral scent on your skin. This perfume is perfect if you are currently wearing floral-scented perfume and thinking to switch to (or want to try) citrus scent. Because the citrus in this perfume is really light, it doesn’t kick in as hard as the citrus scent in men’s perfumes. You don’t have to worry to smell like a lemon Pledge. You will still smell feminine and elegant.

Another thing that I love about wearing this perfume, besides getting compliments from my girl friends for the great smell, is also a lot of compliments from the guys! When I had my vacation in Bali last February, I brought this perfume and wore it during a whole week of holiday, and I got a lot of compliments from guys for smelling great 😀

It was kinda suprising because after all this time I thought guys like women perfumes with feminine floral scent, but turned out they like this Fuji Green Tea perfume too. Well, maybe because they were on a beach in a tropical environment and they were on vacation so the fresh scent matched their mood and they were being nice, hahahaha…. 😀

This perfume fits hot summer weather, day activities, and outdoor vacation. But I also wear it in the evening sometimes. I will change to sexy and sensual floral perfume when I have to go to some events or places that really require elegant, sexy and sensual appearance. Otherwise, Fuji Green Tea can be worn from day to night without any problem.

To find the perfect perfume for you is both an easy and difficult things to do at the same time. For some people, perfume is just something you wear so you don’t stink. But for some others, like me, perfume is a part of my personality. Perfume can define who you are and make people remember you. And that is what happened to me, when a guy once told me, “I remember your perfume.”

So if you were one of the luckiest people who have found the perfect scent, stick with it and make it your signature! :*
