The Body Shop Love ETC Eau De Parfum
I am back to review another TBS product. This is part of my massive part-by-part haul; pics of which I will send in soon 😀 Love Etc has been on my “wanted list” ever since the first time I sampled it when I was in college. It has a lovely fragrance with hints of vanilla, spice and musk and a hint of the fruity, so it was” love at first smell” for me :hihi: . I finally bought it in the recent sale before Jan 26th.
The perfume of love as a universal force – the first ever emotional-led fragrance at The Body Shop. A highly addictive, warm and radiant fragrance which embodies the exuberance and personality of our brand.
Rs. 1245 for 30 ml.
The packaging is cute and colourful, the box is white and has tiny multi-coloured hearts clustered around the word “Love Etc” in girly pink letters. The inside of the box is hot pink and the bottle is transparent with a bronze screw-on cap. It has a simple spritz nozzle.
Coming to the fragrance itself, it sprays on in a fine mist and has a not-too-overpowering or strong scent, but one that lingers. It has top notes of pear, neroli and bergamot; middle notes of jasmine, heliotrope and lily-of-the-valley and the base notes are vanilla, sandalwood and musk cream. The overall mood and effect of this perfume is fun, youthful and girly without being overtly fruity/floral. Of course, the way perfumes smell and the effect they leave also depends on individual skin chemistry. The vanilla, the subtle fruit flavors and the musk stand out together on my skin and the staying power is pretty amazing too. I can still smell faint hints of it (it’s almost 2 am right now) and I put it on at about 12.30 pm today!
Pros of The Body Shop Love ETC Eau De Parfum:
- For those who don’t like floral and love musky, vanilla-based scents, this is for you! This smells heavenly.
- Stays on for at least 8 hours if not more.
- Sprays on well in a fine mist.
- Cute packaging.
Cons of The Body Shop Love ETC Eau De Parfum:
- I can’t think of any except that the shape of the bottle is a bit annoying for me to hold in my hand, but I don’t think it would be a problem for any of you guys.

white gardenia is great…its more fresh…its floral but not like perfume exclusive brand floral…more summery..its like u enjoy the summer breeze by sitting on the deck and enjoying nariyal pani.. :dance: fresh,more aqua and breezy kind of a texture…..if u dont sweat like a pig like me 😥 :waaa: and enveloped in air conditiong it would stay for four hours tops….it would stay more if u put it over a unscented moisturiser or a unscented body pomade…hope this helps! O:)
That’s such a nice description!! I haven’t seen that perfume at the TBS stores much though, is it limited edition? I love the Aqua Lily Body Mist, also a good buy. My office is not airconditioned though 😛 B’lore, so it doesn’t need to be! Thanks for the tip!!
i definitley have to try it. I am not a huge fan of floral perfume so this could be a good pick. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
Me too Rati, I associate overly floral ones with grandmotherly scents 😛
i want :drool: :drool:
Might be strong for me but the dabba is sooooooooooooo pretty!! 🙂 :yes:
When you spritz it, then it’s a very fine spray so I guess it wont be as strong if you put it correctly! It iis pretty na? 🙂
