Soap & Glory Mist You Madly Review


A HUGE thanks to a reader who caught me mentioning how much I adore the scent of Soap & Glory and telling me, "Muse, you do know they make a body mist right?" What? A body mist? Where? How? Who? Why wasn't I sent the memo about this?

I somehow missed the boat on this! Whoa. See, allow me to explain. The reason I missed this was because I always noticed the spray on lotion and actually this is what I thought was being recommended to me. But I ran to Target as fast as my little legs could carry me to take a lookiee just to be sure I didn't miss anything. Low and behold, indeed there was a body mist! Oh. my. god. I nearly passed out in the aisle.

Jump ahead for my take on it!

Soap & Glory Mist You Madly is indeed a body mist that smells like that signature Soap & Glory scent. The blend is a combination of Bergamot, Blackcurrant, Magnolia, Freesia, Vanilla, and Musk. The Soap & Glory scent is such an incredibly complex blend to describe but for the most part it sorta reminds me of a unisex scent that leans towards a more muscular fragrance but pretty none the less.


I was excited to try out Mist You Madly and was hopeful I'd be smelling Soap & Glory-like! The mist comes in quite a nice size of 8.4oz for $11.99 USD. Not bad. Good price, good size.

After trying it out I was a teeny tiny disappointed for two reasons. One, it didn't smell quite like the Soap & Glory scent. Something is different but I'm not sure what. Could be a bit too much musk or too much vanilla but it doesn't quite have that twang that the other items in the Soap & Glory line has. Secondly, I hosed myself down with this literally and it didn't last at all. Almost as soon as it made contact with my skin I got a nice whiff and it quickly disappeared. Le sigh. Darn it!




I really wanted to love this!

The good news is at the very least it is a body mist that smells like Soap & Glory which is better than nothing at all however a bit of a linger and a nice throw would have made it all the more better plus keeping to the original scent would have been nice too.

Ah well the Muse is ever, always a nit picker.

Anyone try?

Do share!

I also love the S&G scent and agree that Mist you madly doesn't smell quite the same! But I am now addicted to Miss Dior Cherie perfume which smells EXACTLY like the S&G pink stuff!

I just discovered this myself. I am in LOVE with it. Although I agree that the scent is not long-lasting enough. I actually enjoy that it's a little sweeter than the lotion and soap. I seriously think it's the perfect fragrance!
