The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Eau De Parfum Review

Hi Pretty ladies!!

So today, I am going to talk about a product, which is the “culprit.” This was the product responsible for my ultra huge Body Shop haul. I actually went to the store to buy this and then they had the “sale” and I went crazy.  White Musk scent from Body Shop is one of their classic signature scents. I read it in a magazine that when it came out, they were selling 2.5 bottles of this product per minute. This was when the product was not even launched in India. Now, white musk libertine is exactly the same except for the fact that this one has a very slight floral top note.

Price:

I got it for 2295 INR for a 60 ml bottle. They do have a 30 ml size too.

My Experience with The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Eau De Parfum:

The packaging, its pure classic. It has this matte finish glass bottle with a floral pink shade fading away towards the top. The cap is plastic, but makes it look like those vintage perfumes, which are ultra costly and you, get them in a simple glass bottle with a glass top like the reagents bottles in the school chemistry labs.

The spray quality is very good.  Coming to the most important part, the smell; the smell is characteristic musky. The musk radiates through all the different notes of the fragrance. If I specify the notes, they would be Chantilly cream with musk at the base, strong musk with some very sweet Turkish delight in the middle with a floral musky with a hint of grapefruit at the top. I mean still, the musk rules everywhere; musk is the heart of the scent.

It gives a more sophisticated, graceful lady like feel. It has a really appealing feminine touch to it that I am absolutely a fan of! The smell is not at all strong. Only the person close to you can smell it. It creates a very welcoming fresh decent aroma around you.

Now, another thing that I think worth mentioning is that this is made of cruelty-free musk, which is very rare.

The staying power of this perfume I would say is around 4-5 hours!! Like seriously? An EDP I had much higher expectations! At least 6-7 hours may be, if that is not too much to ask TBS!

Pros of The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Eau De Parfum:

  • Lovely packaging.
  • Classic musky smell with a feminine edge to it.
  • Smell is nice and sweet and lingers around you very decently, a perfect lady scent.
  • Made of cruelty-free musk.
  • I love Turkish delight, and this baby gets me into the mood of sweetest Turkish delights ever!!
  • It is easily available in TBS stores.

Cons of The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Eau De Parfum:

  • For an EDP, the staying power is a big fail.
  • Beauties who like strong fragrances in the sense that a lot of people should notice it, this product won’t be the right pick.

IMBB Rating:

4/5.

I took away whole one point only because of its staying power, otherwise this is indeed one of my favorites ever!!
