St. Kitts Herbery Mist Perfume: A Refreshingly New Discovery

Some of you may know that I am absolutely obsessed with accumulating new fragrances. I love to experiment with new scents and when I smell something I adore, it's hard for me not to have it in my collection. 

After collecting for a long, long time I was so upset when my collection went missing during the move to my new place. It's really sad when you lose things, especially a whole collection but life does go on and I've been gradually trying to build it back up. Actually, it might be a blessing in disguise considering I have only repurchased a couple of the old fragrances purely because I've had SO much fun discovering new scents out there. 

I found out about St. Kitts Herbery through the Bloggers Love Hub and their range really drew me in because their products looked very simply packaged and I got the impression that they put in a lot of effort with their products performing and smelling nicely, rather than being gimmicky like a lot of other fragrance companies out there. 



I chose the 'Mist' scent because it sounded so original and unlike anything I own or usually go for. It came beautifully packaged in a subtle black box with the name embossed in silver. I actually really like the black packaging, it's classy and simple. 


Same goes for the bottle itself, it's square and has a neat label on it. I've seen a lot of over-the-top bottles out there which can be nice to have for displays but in all honesty, I think these types of bottles are more convenient to store, especially in my bathroom cabinet which has limited space. 

On to the scent, 'Mist' is very fresh and clean. It contains notes of lemon, green herbs and eucalyptus, with lingering fragrances of rose, neroli, amber and cedar wood. I usually go for quite sweet, feminine fragrances and I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed wearing this. It's easy to wear and gorgeous for the daytime as it's not too strong at all. In fact, it gives off just the right amount of scent... hence the name 'mist' maybe? It's very effortless! 


This is definitely one for those of you who tend to steer away from the overly floral fragrances and look for more of the neutral scents.

I would 100% try out more of St. Kitts Herbery products as I was so impressed with this fragrance. I loved reading the background behind the brand seeing as it started from very humble beginnings in Cornwall and gradually built up to become a larger brand stocking skincare, perfume, herbed chocolate and lots of other treats. I think it makes a big difference to your experience when you learn more about the background of a company, especially one that is local to the UK because you appreciate the product that much more :)
