With its uplifting aroma and storied history, Omorovicza’s neroli-and-rose-scented Queen of Hungary Mist is quite literally fit for a queen. The unique hydrating formula was inspired by Queen of Hungary Water, a perfume and elixir (said to be the world’s first recorded fragrance) formulated for HRH Elisabeth of Hungary in the 14th century. (Early instructions directed fans to both wash with and drink the Water.) Users be advised: Omorovicza’s modern interpretation is not meant to be ingested or worn as perfume, but one quick spritz of the mist will set makeup, help prevent eczema, and leave skin hydrated and supple. Thank ingredients like mineral-rich Hungarian water and moisturizing apple pectin, which pair up to make an indulgent, any-time-of-day beauty panacea.
ON SET: The perfect setting spray to lock in makeup on a 12-hour shoot.
ON THE RED CARPET: Delivers a quick refresh between press interviews and cocktail hour.
ON THE VANITY: Acts as a post–face wash toner to balance your skin’s pH and prevent issues like dry skin and eczema.
“This neroli-scented face mist smells divine and is the perfect skin pick-me-up. I also use it to moisten my brushes and sponges to help with blending out foundation.”—Pati Dubroff, makeup artist
