TBS White Musk Smoky Rose EDT Review
Raise your hand if you are surprised by the Delhi weather? *raises hand up high* Well its been raining from a couple of days..yes finally! Love how everything looks so serene and fresh after it has poured. Yep may be I should pack my bags and move to Mumbai permanently! Oooh that reminds me I’ve a vacation on cards. I’m so excited that I fear I will spill everything right away so all I will say is its a city of sands and beaches. For now let’s review this sultry new fragrance by The Body Shop called White Musk Smoky Rose which I’ve been using from quite some time now.
The Body Shop Claims: A daring and mysterious fragrance in a light eau de toilette, featuring an intoxicating blend of cruelty-free musk with sinuous notes of black smoky rose and tobacco flower.
- Seductive floral-musk scent
- Contains cruelty-free musk
- Light eau de toilette
What do you think of the ombre bottle! I think I saw a sea salt in a test tube thingy with a similar ombre effect and since then I wanted one to keep on my dresser. And this comes quite close to what I wanted. In terms of packaging, its simple and adorable.
As per Fragrantica, Top notes are bergamot, pink pepper and black currant; middle notes are tobacco blossom, black rose, orange blossom and immortelle; base notes are olibanum and white musk.
The scent is a mix of floral and musky. Something grown up girls or women would like on them. Its a mature musky fragrance with hints of rose, blackberry and smoke. Very spicy. Very sultry. I won’t call it a summer fragrance since its sharp yet subtle. Its more of a fall/winter fragrance. I often reach for it in the evenings when I’m going out for a dinner.
It lasts on me for about 3-4 hours after which I can’t sniff it. May be its because of summers so I’m expecting the lasting power to increase by a couple of hours in winters. Although I would have liked a long lasting scent but since its EDT and not perfume so I can’t complain. May be fragrance of the EDP in this range lasts longer. Yep they have a full range complete with a body mist.
Pros of TBS White Musk Smoky Rose Eau De Toilette:
- Sharp spicy and musky fragrance
- Good for evenings and night outs
- Makes you feel grown up and sexy!
- The ombre packaging
- Those who like something which isn’t not too floral or fruity, this is it
Cons of The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose EDT:
- I wish it lasted longer but then its EDT and not EDP so cannot expect better.
VNA Rating: 4/5
So is it for you? The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose is for all those girls looking for a spicy and musky scent which isn’t overtly feminine yet has a sweet floral fragrance. Its quite sexy and alluring and instantly makes you feel like a sophisticated woman!
