Satsuma Eau de Toilette
I hate to give a bad review on a Body Shop product but this one is only getting 2 stars in my book. I bought this product to finish my collection of the whole satsuma line. Super excited to get it as I 'm obsessed with the smell of satsuma. But when I received this in the mail, I was so disappointed. The bottle size is smaller than travel size!!! It's my fault for not looking at the 1 oz size, but I would have never paid the price I did for it, even at half off for the small amount you get. Secondly, as a few others have said.. it smells great when you spray it, like sweet and intense oranges, but then it literally disappears in two minutes! If they made the product to be more long lasting , and in a bigger size, it would be a great product! But it's not.. so... will not be buying this again.

Lovely product! I love the scent, which I find great: refreshing citrus and is sweet. Unlike many of the other reviews, I find this pretty long lasting, and the bottle is small enough to bring along for small touch ups. I would agree the sweetness can be a little over powering, but over time it slowly mellows down. It was a great buy, considering I got it in the buy 2 get 2 free sale. :D

Too Sweet, Not Long Lasting
Something I have fond to be true of all the Body Shop EDTs is the strength of scent and lasting power. When first sprayed, the scent is really strong, so you'd think it would last a long while, but they don't. Satsuma is a nice scent in ALL the other products, but the EDT has a sickly sweet quality to it that I personally dislike -- perhaps others enjoy smelling sweet. I have tried layering it with other citrus scents to break up the sweetness of it, but it just does not work for me. Once it dries down on my skin, it smells like an orange cleaner as opposed to a nice, zesty citrus scent. I would not recommend this to anyone who doesn't want a sweet scent, but I'm sure that it doesn't smell like orange cleaner on everyone.

scent doesn't last
I love this scent, however it is gone 1/2 minute after it is sprayed. Therefore I believe the price is way too high.
