Scents of the World: The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom

When it comes to fragrances, I almost always gravitate towards foodie scents like vanilla and chocolate, just because they're temptingly delicious and I love the thought of smelling like dessert. However, when it comes to choosing fragrances that really go well with my body chemistry, I find that I get the most compliments whenever I use floral fragrances. The Body Shop has revamped their fragrances and released their finest fragrance collection containing 100% organic essence and globally sourced natural extracts, Scents of the World.

Scents of the World will transport you to faraway places.

Escape with The Body Shop's captivating fragrance collection inspired by the scents of the world, created with ingredients sourced from around the globe.


In Morocco, envelop yourself in the scent of hand-picked Atlas Mountain Rose. Amber and musk combine with citrus notes, exotic spices, and mountain rose extracts from Morocco. Inspired by dawn in a field of blossoming roses, this bright, dewy eau de toilette from our Scents of the World fragrance collection features a blend of floral accords.


Express your romantic side as you pick Japanese Cherry Blossom in Kyoto. Fruity and floral, with top notes of Fuji apple and Chinese magnolia, alongside real Japanese cherry blossom. Inspired by a spring day in Kyoto, this romantic, captivating eau de toilette from our Scents of the World fragrance collection features a blend of floral and hinoki wood accords.


Off the coast of Africa, the fragrance of Madagascan Vanilla Flower travels on a warm, African breeze. An oriental, gourmand delight with notes of amber, frangipani, and vanilla from Madagascar. Inspired by a sunny day on the tropical island of Madagascar, this warm, sensual eau de toilette from our Scents of the World fragrance collection features a blend of floral and oriental accords.


Discover a lush oasis in the Amazon with Amazonian Wild Lily. Green and fresh, with iris orchid, and papaya alongside white lilies from Brazil. Inspired by the rain-kissed freshness of the jungle, this crisp, luminous eau de toilette from our Scents of the World fragrance collection features a blend of floral and aquatic accords.

I loved how The Body Shop has revamped the look of their fragrances. From their previous version (with a chubbier bottle and a not so sturdy cap), we now have this!

The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette (P1,395.00)


The scent I am currently loving is The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette (EDT). The scent is inspired by a spring day in Maruyama Park, where people witness the fleeting beauty of cherry trees that are in bloom for only one week. If I can't witness that in person, then I'll just spritz some of this fragrance on and let the scent take me to that faraway place.



This one is a nice daytime fragrance as it is so delicate, light, and fresh. Those who are sensitive to fragrances would also love this, as this scent won't induce a sneezing spree. This fragrance is delicately floral and so pleasing to the senses. The only con is that it doesn't last for more than half a day, but I don't really mind reapplying by midday, since it smells so good.

For a longer-lasting fragrance, layering comes into the picture! Aside from the EDT, The Scents of the World range of products also comes in shower gels, body lotions, and fragrance mists.

  • Infused with Japanese cherry blossom extract

Love,
