Springtime is one of my favorite times to bask in floral scents. I know — "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking." But still, there's something about a fresh floral scent that can brighten your day while making you feel flirty and romantic. Jasmine is one of my all-time favorite floral scents, and when Soma Ayurvedic came out with this jasmine-derived body oil, I knew I had to get my hands on it. I'm a fan of its vitamin C serum, so I had high hopes for this body oil.

As soon as I opened the bottle, I instantly got a whiff of that luxurious and divine jasmine scent. I immediately pictured putting freshly made garlands of jasmine from India in my hair. The Soma Ayurvedic Jasmine Body Oil ($128) smells exactly like authentic jasmine flowers. It's not overpowering or layered with other scents. I even compared the scent to the blooms from my jasmine tree at home, and the fragrance of this body oil is actually better and more distinct. This body oil has a familiar yet specific jasmine scent. In fact, the jasmine flowers used to create this body oil come from Madurai, India, a city known for its jasmine species. The fragrance is comforting, fresh, and bright, yet it has a romantic and intoxicating vibe.

The jasmine-derived body oil contains pomegranate oil, aloe vera, and cucumber oil that the brand claims will help deeply hydrate and brighten the skin. The oil is pretty hydrating and moisturizing but incredibly lightweight. It sinks into the skin like a water-based moisturizer, but it also feels moisturizing and conditioning like a body butter. It doesn't leave any type of residue or stickiness on the skin or my clothing. My skin looks hydrated with a dewy, glow-like finish and feels incredibly soft and silky as well. There's a subtle sheen that makes the skin look healthy and revitalized. Plus, you only need a little bit to experience these benefits. I used around four full droppers for my whole body.

The fresh jasmine fragrance lasts for quite a long time and even lingers on my clothes like a perfume. The scent sinks into your skin and becomes a part of you throughout the day. In fact, I swapped this in as my perfume lately, and I've gotten so many compliments and questions about the scent. I strategically place a few drops behind my ears, on my neck and wrists, and even in my hair. You can even use this as a base for a layered fragrance experience.

I usually avoid body oils during the spring and summer, but Soma Ayurvedic's Jasmine Body Oil is an elevated vibe for the season. The lightweight, quick-absorbing formula is ideal for warmer weather, and the scent is just heavenly, perfect for spring! I truly don't know what I love more: how it smells or how it feels on my skin. This body oil is a luxurious, sensorial experience that will transport you to a relaxing state of mind while making your skin feel like silk. It's the epitome of a treat-yourself moment that will make you feel romantic and alluring.
