The Cheirosa body mist range from Sol De Janeiro has ‘gone viral’ recently, with their fragrances appearing on review articles and YouTube channels on a regular basis. The Vegan & Cruelty-free range used to be called Brazilian Crush but has recently been rebranded to Cheirosa, with each fragrance having a number rather than a name.
Sol De Janeiro was founded by American Heela Yang who was inspired by her partner’s Brazilian heritage. The Brazilian word Cheirosa means ‘to always smell delicious’ in English, and the fragrances do have lots of edible fruity notes in them.
Sol De Janeiro was originally made famous for its Bum Bum cream which is made for when you’re wearing your bikini on the beach. More recently, their fragrances have become another hero product for the brand.

Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 39 (Coco Cabana)
Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 39 (formally known as Coco Cabana) is my personal favourite fragrance from Sol De Janeiro. It’s a super Coconut perfume, specifically, I think it smells just like decimated Coconut. The slightly sweet Vanilla undertones works well with the Coconut to create an ideal Vacation scent!
Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 40
Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 40 combines Plum and Vanilla to create a sweet fruity floral fragrance. I personally find Cheirosa 40 to be one of the least unique fragrances in the Sol de Janeiro range.
Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 62
Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 62 is a sweet Salted Caramel fragrance, though I have to say I don’t find it as strong or as sweet as Cheirosa 71. Perhaps the Salt and a nutty Pistachio and Almond combination tone down the sweetness of the Caramel. Overall, Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 62 smells like a Salted Caramel desert.
Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 68
In my view, Sol de Janeiro is a close dupe to Ariana Grande Cloud and Baccarat Rouge 540. It has the same slightly sweet, Ambrette Musk feeling as both fragrance and an impressive lasting power. In fact, I think Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 68 is the longest lasting body mist I’ve ever tried, I can’t recommend it enough.

Cheirosa Sea & Sol
Cheirosa Tan Lines
Tuberose and Ylang-ylang make Cheirosa Tan Lines one of the more floral fragrances from Sol De Janeiro. A fresh Coconut milk scent adds a tropical vibe and a hint of Vanilla and amber generate the warmth associated with the Sol De Janeiro body mists.
Cheirosa Tropical Nights
Cheirosa Tropical Nights is an interesting scent which will work well for evenings on holiday, so the name Tropical Nights feels very appropriate. I love the Mandarin Oil top note as well as the Night Blooming Jasmine which is my favourite kind of Jasmine scent (check out my article on the different types of Jasmine in perfume).
A sexy Tonka Bean base and Tobacco leaf add an elegance and sophistication to Cheirosa Tropical Nights which I really like, I think this might be my favourite Sol de Janeiro fragrance.
Do Not Disturb
Sol De Janeiro Do Not Disturb gives me ‘clean cotton’ vibes with its airy and ozonic fresh top notes. As it settles a hint of musk emerges which creates a scent reminiscent of freshly laundered sheets or the scent which fills the room after you’ve been ironing.
I think Bikini Season is my favourite Sol De Janeiro perfume mist; I find it so addictive! Guava and lemon notes create a sort of sherbet orange scent which reminds me of Escada Miami Blossom. There is a hint of coconut water which adds to the tropical feel. Sol De Janeiro Bikini Season is my current go-to summer scent for whenever I want those feel-good tropical vibes.
When In Rio
In 2023 the limited edition Sol de Janeiro After Hours was released. This is a blackcurrant and jasmine fragrance which is a bit of a dupe for Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. Unlike Flowerbomb, After Hours is relatively light; which is to be expected from a body spray where the fragrance oil concentration will be low.
Sol de Janeiro After Hours is available at ASOS
