Pomegranate & Raspberry Home Spray ingredients

From The Body Shop homepage the description:

Redcurrant, pomegranate - Provide the initial scent of the fragrance
Raspberry, blackberry - Are the dominant notes of the fragrance
Guava, coconut - Tend to linger for longer than the other notes

Now the actual ingredients:
Water (Solvent/Diluent), PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil (Emulsifier), Dipropylene Glycol (Humectant), Polysorbate 20 (Emulsifier), Trideceth-7 (Emulsifier), Caprylyl Glycol (Skin Conditioning Agent), Fragrance (Fragrance - this should be "nature" cosmetics, what is this fragrance? is it synthetic?), Honey (Natural Additive), p-Anisic Acid (pH Modifier), Hexyl Cinnamal (Fragrance Ingredient), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Sodium Hydroxide (pH Adjuster), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil (Essential Oil), Citronellol (Fragrance Ingredient), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient), Illicium Verum (Star Anise) Oil ( Skin Conditioning Agent), Ribes Nigrum (Black Currant) Bud Extract (Skin-Conditioning Agent)

So in effect: honey, lemonpeels, star anise and blackcurrant buds (and the last two as skin conditioning agents?)... hmmm... Where's the pomegranate? Not that I particularily mind, the smell itself is good... Has been in use for a week now, since the scent disappears quickly and needs to be applied and reapplied, the perfume will not last long.

Are perfume makers excused from exactly listing all the ingredients?

PS! It's September 27 now and there's a special offer in my mailbox: all room scents are now discounted, from 188 kr to 144 kr, and if one has client card, that's another 10% off (methinks). Offer's on until October 17th.

I didn't realize the body shop has home spray. I use Air wick aqua mist.

I got it because I thought TBS is more a green company but after the ingredients list, I think I'll try Joik's candles next time for a room fragrance. Some of those are on sale too :)
