Long lasting Perfume

Perfume last long so it is more valuable for its price. I usually just use perfume on special occasions or when I’m indoors and use body spray when I’m staying outside.

Perfume

I'd say that perfume is lot better. Not just for longer fragrance. But also it can be good for skin. As some of the deo are not good for the skin and it is really harder for the body too. I prefer perfume.

potent

I think perfume smells better and it's more potent and it's probably why it's the more popular type of fragrance. Body sprays are okay too but there is something about the smell that makes them so different and for me perfume just smells a bit different and also the way it lasts and fades throughout the day is more appealing to me.

Lasts longer than body sprays

Perfumes are very well known for its quality and long lasting fragrance once applied on fabrics. When you wear a high quality perfume even though it's expensive, you definitely going to smell the part of being good with your body aroma. Perfumes are the best in my opinion.

Perfume

I would definitely pick Perfume because it has a better, stronger scent than body sprays. Also Perfumes last longer than body sprays because it's more concentrated, it's also several times more expensive.

Perfume!

Definitely this one! I like using perfume because just like the description of it, it lasts long. Although it is a bit expensive but it is worth it when you use it. Also, it looks professional when you use perfume especially when you work at high-class and big companies where your co-workers look very professional as well.

Perfume

I almost always use perfume when I go out and not body sprays. I used body sprays once but I noticed that I use too much and it is both wasteful and expensive if I always do that. While when applying perfume I just put a small amount on my neck and palm areas and I am already set.

Longer lasting, better scents

I feel like perfumes have a better overall scent, and seem to have a longer lasting fragrance than body sprays do. Sure, perfume is more expensive, but I think it ends up being a case of quality over quantity!

Afraid of allergies

I actually wanted to have body sprays in the past, however I am afraid I might get allergies because of the chemicals that will directly penetrate on my skin. That is why I choose perfumes more because I only apply it on my clothes which doesn't directly harm my skin.

I liked perfume very much compared to body spray. I used to use body spray before but I noticed that the smell did not lasts longer that is why I switched to perfume. I liked how it stays long in my body. The scent also is very strong and amazing.

Last longer

Although body spray can control the body odor, I still prefer to use a perfume since it lasts longer. And besides, I use a separate deodorant so I don't need to get the body spray. Perfume might be expensive but it is worth it to buy since you don't have to spray many times in a day.

Perfume

I prefer perfume rather than boy spray as the fragrance lasts longer in my body. It stays with me from morning until evening. Also, perfume has a very wide range of unique frangrances that I can choose from. Although it is expensive, I can say that fragrances from perfume are much better and classy than body sprays because some body sprays are too strong and I don't like strong smell.

Perfume is better than body sprays. Once you put a little on the clothes you smell sweet for a longer time. Perfumes ensure smelling fresh and sweet for long.

I love using this.

What I like with perfumes is the length of their scent in you. I sometimes use body spray but it annoyingly doesn't stay longer than perfumes. I always love wearing perfumes whenever I go out, it makes me feel good together with my appearance. It gives me confidence especially when I deal with people.

Less Hassle

In this times we are almost always busy. Applying perfume once and not having to worry how I smell for the rest of the day is one thing less on my mind. So I'm choosing perfume in this. It is much less hassle than body sprays. At least you won't get off-guard when meeting a client or going out with friends. They may be costly, but at least it is worth it.

perfume for the win.

I love perfumes, and I collect a lot of them(not the overly expensive one since I am broke). Body spray is also great, but it scent last for about and hour or two so the bottle will easily gets empty while perfume last for a day, so I think body spray is more costly than perfume.

Perfume is Classier

Perfume blends unique with your own smell and is of much better quality in terms of fragrances , compared to the basic smell of a body spray. I'd say Body sprays are for using at the gym actually or from younger people.

Perfume all the way!

No doubt about that. Perfume may be more expensive, but the smell is way more durable. It's stronger. Stays for longer. Doesn't smell "cheap". Way more durable. It has a higher concentration of ingredients. Body sprays are good after your gym so you won't smell bad until you go home and take a shower. You can't use them on official dinner or when on a business meeting.

Smells natural

I am a person who loves perfume. I always feel the need to use one. I spray perfume before I leave the house. As stated, it lasts longer and I don't have to spray one every now and then. Other than that, spraying perfume on your skin makes the smell seems like it's coming naturally from your skin.

Perfumes are better

I would rather invest on an expensive but quality perfume than a cheap body spray. Perfumes smell better and are more sophisticated; they also have a wider spectrum of fragrances compared to body sprays.

Great scent

Perfumes are for the classy people especially those who want to stand out when it comes to smell. A great perfume always complements a great attire. I also use body sprays but that's only if I wasn't able to buy my perfume. Perfume have this strong, great, long lasting scent that can really attract the attention of people around you. Who knows, even animals dig your smell.

Prefer Body Sprays

For all the reasons stated above I prefer body sprays if I am buying for myself. However, if I am giving a gift, I would still buy perfume. I just would just make sure the fragrance I picked didn't have all those CONs.

Well, at this stage of my life, I don't really see anything reason I should be spending more to get perfumes when I can make use of body sprays. One thing is that I try to manage things in the best possible that I can and making use of nice body sprays is the way to go at this particular time as well.

spray that pays

Perfume cannot fight off body odor and perspiration so I opt to choose body spray. There are many variety of body sprays that actually smells good than any other perfume in the market. Even though the scent doesnt last that long. In the long run as long as ut prevents unwanted underarm smell and sweat I'm okay with that. Now, tell me any perfume that can prevent perspiration and are not expensive.

for everyday use

I like body sprays better because the scent is much lighter than most perfumes thus I can use it everyday. It's also cheaper and it's very handy because most are packaged using cans rather than glass bottles.

Easily accessible

One thing that is clear about body sprays is affordability. Most perfumes are expensive, and at times finding your brand might be an issue. On the other hand, accessing body spray is much easier. Besides accessing body spray with ease, they are affordable.

I both used them and tried them. In my opinion, body spray is only for teenager who always like to smell good. They are always bring their body spray in their bag so that when the smell goes out they will spray it again. While perfume is for person who is at workable age. A lot of perfume is suitable for person who works in the office.

Same here because I use the two too but I have to disagree that body spray is mostly for teenagers. I think it more of a choice thing not specifically for any group of people if anyone can use the two it even better.it will definitely keep away any awful smell for a very long time.

I don't agree with your point. Body spray is for all ages and it is for daily use. Perfume is also for all ages, however, it is meant to be used in special occasions. Bur then there are no hard and fast rules regarding body spray and perfume.

So you use body spray and perfume at the same time? Body spray is basically meant to be used on your skin, preferably under arm. Body spray is supposedly mean to kill your own body odor. Perfume is for aroma and is supposed to be used in your skin. However, based on the type, some perfume can be applied on your neck as well.
Posted by vinaya on 10-21-2018

Yea, I applied the two at the same time it should be used that way. Using a body spray maybe under the armpit shouldn't stop one from spraying perfume on the clothes too. Well,for me it works better that way.

I personally have preferred the perfume for many reasons. You can see that deo often have some of the gas which is not good for the skin. I'd recommend you to make use of that only on the clothing and not on direct body. Because that surely has some of the side effects. so based on that you can learn how things work on that note there.

You use body spray in your skin and you use perfume on your clothes. Since body spray is used in the skin it can cause body irritation. Therefore, if you have sensitive skin, you need to be very careful about using body spray.

If one gets a good product no matter how pricey it wouldn't have many problems. Sometimes it good to consult an expert before using a product that way one wouldn't have much problem even with a sensitive skin.

I've tried body sprays before from a particular brand, and honestly, I don't like them. Yeah, it's cheaper but the scent only lasts for like 20 minutes, and it's all gone. Compared to using perfume wherein the smell stays on you for hours and hours after you applied them.

How long the body spray lasts depend on the brand. There are brands that last for 6-8 hours. Some even lasts for 12 hours. You apply in the morning and when you come back home, you will still be smelling nice. Body spray is more of a every day use item, where as perfume is for occasions. That's why perfume is expensive where as body spray as relatively cheaper.

Having worked for a major cosmetic house, perfume and body sprays are completely different products and you can't compare them. Perfume is so concentrated and has oils in it you would only use a small amount, versus a body spray which can be used all over liberally. It's mainly sold as a layering product to be used in conjunction with body lotions, creams and shower gels, and not as a cheap version of a fragrance.

I use both, each has it's strengths. What's great with body sprays is that it's very affordable, it only cost a fraction of what perfumes cost. Also body sprays are great because I can apply it all over my body. Perfumes are concentrated fragrances which costs a lot more than body sprays. It's expensive but it's worth it because it takes a long time before the scent disappears.

Both has their own advantages. Personally I use both depending on what I feel would like to wear but I use perfume most of the time as its scent lasts like forever compared to a body spray. Perfumes are pricey than a body spray or cologne and both has different substances combined and also to note the branding that affects its cost as a whole.

I prefer perfumes all the way actually. You don't have to spray your clothes , so it won't stain them (just spray skin). They are more intense , last for far longer and also have much more quality in fragrances. On the other hand body sprays , are more basic in terms of their smell , last for much less and can actually corrupt your clothes , for example under the armpits. Also perfumes blend with the smell of your own skin and create a unique smell , which doesn't happen with body sprays at all. Body sprays I think would be something someone would use in the gym for example.

I always prefer perfume than body spray because perfume is lasting although much more expensive than body spray. It is my habit to buy perfume when there is a sale in the duty free shop where we go every year. Those expensive perfumes are sold at 50% discount that I couldn’t help but buy one or 2 of the popular brands. I also have body spray but I only use it when I am at home.

I have to admit that I can’t associate the smell of body spray with anything other than a high school locker room. I know that sounds a bit creepy, but hear me out. Back when I was in high school, Axe body spray was all the rage, and the boys in the locker room would absolutely shower themselves with it after P.E class. Now whenever I smell it, that’s all I can think about. I think that most women would also agree that a good perfume or cologne is definitely the classier and more adult choice.
