Whether or not you’re a fashion fanatic, it’s likely you’ve heard of the Victoria Secret fashion show. It was a staple of event for any celebrity watcher or supermodel fan. The brand has a star-power unlike any other mainstream lingerie brand, bringing in supermodels to walk down the runway while some of the biggest names in music perform on the same stage.

When Victoria’s Secret launched in 1977, no one could have predicted the global empire that the brand would become. While you might know them for its sexy lingerie, the brand is most popular for their perfumes and body mists. They’re such a hit, that Victoria’s Secret has over 400 of them in their catalogue, with the first launching in 1991. The perfume that made the line a success was Dream Angels, which launched in 2000 and has inspired an entire collection.

Body mists are the perfect alternative to a heavy perfume, especially for the warmer months or when you’re looking for something a little more understated. You can also mix and match them with your perfume to layer the scents and create a unique combination just for you.

The body mists are one of the most popular items from Victoria’s Secret, who also sell an extensive collection of activewear, loungewear, and sleep wear. These body mists allow you to buy into the brand at an affordable price point, especially if the brand’s iconic bra and underwear sets are outside of your budget. The body mists are popular with everyone from pre-teens to women in their 30s.

As our list focuses on finding the top-rated Victoria Secret body mist, it’s important to note the difference between a body mist and a fragrance. Your body mist is the lightest formulation of fragrance, lingering on your skin for an hour or two at most. While you won’t get the intensity of a perfume, you’ll save at least half the price of the perfume version and you can layer scents together to create a unique note combination. As most of the Victoria Secret body mists have a fragrance equivalent, this couldn’t be easier!

We’re in search of the best smelling Victoria Secret fragrance mist by rounding up ten of the bestsellers so that you can decide which one tickles your fancy. Our list includes the most famous Victoria Secret body mist, along with some that have flown under the radar but that deserve a little more attention.
