I am sure all of you have heard about the white musk perfume from The Body Shop. While I have always liked that perfume, I was not a total fan. It has a strong floral fragrance which I associate with my childhood…more specifically my mum. I usually go in for more seductive, sensual perfumes, but find that those are most suitable for evening outs only. Mymost favourite perfume so far has been Chanel no.5, which I think epitomises women sensuality. I recently had a stop over at Delhi airport, where I visited The Body Shop. I had some credit Coupons to redeem, but I wasn’t sure what to buy. The mauve colored bottles in the shop beckoned me. One whiff of this product and I was totally, completely bowled. I immediately purchased the mist variant of this fragrance and I have been loving it so far.

My Experience with The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose Fragrance Mist:
This fragrance is a more seductive and sultry counterpart of its original sister…The White Musk. However, I find that it does not resemble white musk in any way. It has an individuality of its own. The perfume comes across as sweet in the very beginning, but the top notes don’t last, and are quickly replaced by a more mature rosy fragrance. The base notes are very soft and do not cause headache at all. The base notes are extremely long lasting as well, even in the body mist variant.
The mist comes in a lovely mauve colored glass bottle. I have been besotted with this fragrance mist so far. It is a perfect evening fragrance, but not so heady that I cannot use it in the morning. I use it on my skin as well as clothes. On my skin, it lasts for 2-3 hours which is as good as any other body mist. On my clothes, it stays on and on and I can smell it many days later as well. The longevity on the skin might be increased by co-application of the body lotion.
Pros of The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose Fragrance Mist:
