Pros:scent, lasts several hours, good price
The Bottom Line: A wonderful body mist that lasts longer than most.
I really like the Origins ginger scented products, but they are quite expensive. I knew Avon had a line of products with a similar scent available. When I was cruising the site, I came across the gift set on clearance and immediately added it to my cart. Included in the set were the Ginger Scents Be Gingerly Pampering Body Lotion, the Ginger Scents Ginger Clean Exfoliating Shower Gel, and the Avon Ginger Scents Fresh Spray Body Mist. I love everything in the set!

About the Product
Avon tells you to take time out for the refreshing fragrance of pink grapefruit and relaxing ginger. Their Body Mist is very similar to those from Bath and Body Works. It's a lighter formula than perfume or cologne.
Price and Packaging
I was surprised by the size of the bottle. It is only a 4.2 fl. oz. sized bottle. I am used to the larger 8 oz. bottles Bath and Body Works. The bottle is short and cylindrical shaped. There is a dark yellow label on the bottle. The spray is dispensed through a standard pump dispenser.
The price of the Body Mist is listed at $9.00 which I find somewhat high for Avon. Also I can get double that amount at Bath and Body Works for only a dollar more. It is currently listed on Avon.com for only $4.50. You can buy this on the website or through an Avon representative.

I always layer my products. I am fanatical about making sure my shower gel, lotion, and fragrance match or at least coordinate. So I didn't apply the Avon Ginger Scents Fresh Spray Body Mist until after I had showered with the shower gel and applied the lotion in the same scent. Then I sprayed myself with the Body Mist.
The pump dispensed big squirts of the fragrance that covered a larger area than I was used to. I only needed a few squirts to cover myself. I smelled good immediately. There wasn't a strong alcohol scent that sometimes is there initially with these type of products. When the mist dried, I smelled heavenly. I could smell both the ginger and the citrus. It was a perfect mix of the 2 scents. The ginger wasn't too strong. The citrus really balanced it and made it a nice fresh, clean scent. It smelled a lot like the Origins products, but a little "brighter". Maybe this one has a touch more citrus, while the Origins products have a touch more ginger. I actually prefer the Avon Ginger Scents which my wallet definitely appreciates.
As I went on in my day, I could smell the fragrance. It lasted for several hours. I was shocked. The scent did fade after a couple hours, but after 6 or 7 hours, I could still smell the scent on my skin. I was very pleased. Normally body mists tend to disappear on me after 3-4 hours and I have to reapply. I could have reapplied the Avon Ginger Scents Fresh Spray Body Mist to intensify the scent, but I didn't need to. The scent had faded, but was still there. I was very pleased and it made me think that the original $9 price tag might very well be worth it since I would be using much less of the product each time I used it.
I absolutely love the entire Avon Ginger Scents line. This Body Mist smells great and lasts longer than other mists I've used. If you are looking for a fresh scent that is unique, give this one a try. Or if you already love the Origins Ginger product, try Avon and save yourself some money!
