[unpaid/sample] I’m leaning into the Sacred Mist by spritzing the mood boosting and calming aromatic before yoga to see if it brings any additional peace to my practice. Although it’s called an EDP, you can use Cosmoss Sacred Mist EPD as either a personal fragrance or an atmosphere spray. And, yes, it’s from Kate Moss’s wellbeing collection.
Maybe it’s just the association with calmness but as soon as I spritzed this into the atmosphere next to me, I started yawning! Maybe it’s actually released some stress (or is it dogs that yawn when they’re stressed?). The initial spritz is lively and cool and the notes of jasmine, orange flower, bergamot and geranium linger long enough to leave an impression. There’s a flash of tuberose too, so it’s a little bit heady – really, very pleasant indeed if these are your notes.
If I’m to be picky, it’s a bit too woody for me – oak moss, tonka and cedarwood – I’d have liked to stay with the other notes for longer before the woods kick in. It’s essential oil based so if you’re sensitive, it isn’t for you, but otherwise, I feel there are benefits to this combination in terms of grounding and mood shifting. At £120, it’s made for its market – I don’t think popping to my local leisure centre is where its aimed – and if money was no object, I’d definitely make room for it. Olfactory mood shifters are very useful in distracting your brain from whatever it’s stuck on so on that basis, ignoring the price, it’s working on that level. I didn’t find that it stayed on my skin very long – Sacred Mist seems altogether better as a refreshing work station spray (maybe an aura spray?) or to get you in the right frame of mind for relaxing.
