The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose

I don't think my teenage years would have been the same without the White Musk range from The Body Shop.  Any time I head into any of The Body Shops to have a wander, I always have to have a whiff and it immediately brings me back down memory lane to the good old days.

Now The Body Shop has released a new member of the White Musk family.  We're talking about the White Musk Smoky Rose collection that has captivated me like the original, but is different enough to help me create a new set of memories that I can think back on wistfully.


White Musk Smoky Rose is described as "a daring evening scent" and the presence of musk in any scent makes me happy and feel warm and cosy.  There's a light sweetness and spiciness when I first spray the scent as it opens with bergamot, pink pepper and blackcurrant.  Then the smoky rose takes over.  Combined with the tobacco flower, it has a sexy, dark feel to it, but still retains the subtle sweetness thanks to the orange flower.  When it finally dries down fully, the musk takes hold along with immortelle flower and olibanum which gives the sensual (ooh-er) finish we all know and love from the white musk scents from The Body Shop.

This scent makes me want to be wrapped up in a big soft scarf (if only I had one or two of those hanging around eh?)  It's a warm scent, but also light and sweet, while still being floral.  Just do me a favour and go in and smell it for yourself and you'll see why it's a hard one to describe.


If you're looking for a new scent this autumn, then definitely check the White Musk Smoky Rose collection.  Prices range from €11.95 for the fragrance mist up to €20.95 for the EDP.  And I'm just saying, this might be a good Christmas present to get for a loved one (or yourself...)!
