    How many times have you yearned to go for lunch at that hawker centre with the stall that serves your favourite Hokkien mee or bak chor mee, but decided against it because you just didn’t want to smell like the said hawker centre? And it’s not just hawker centres, cafes can leave your skin, clothes and hair with that oil-ridden odour too.

    In these instances, the usual eau de toilettes (EDTs) or eau de parfums (EDPs) won’t cut it. Firstly, because EDPs and EDTs have a scent composition that is more intense, the result might be too cloying or overpowering. Secondly, they won’t be so effective because they are meant to be sprayed on your skin, and not on your clothes and hair as they contain fairly high levels of alcohol, which can damage both the fabric of clothes and the strands of your hair alike.

    Reach for these body and hair mists instead. With less or even no alcohol content, you can go ahead and spray them wherever and whenever you need to hit refresh on your scent. Psst… they work great for post-gym-no-time-to-shower situations too.
