I am a fragrance person. I am all about comfy, luxurious and vibrant scents. I have been accused of being a perfume hoarder and I confess it with all my heart 😛 I have been an all time admirer of TBS range of perfumes.
They store some of my absolute favourite scents and I find myself repurchasing some classics over and over again. The shea range of TBS is one of those classics that I can never have enough of. So, let us go right into it and see how amazing this particular scent is.

In Detail The Body Shop Shea Eau De Toilette Review and My Experience
I love the shea range from TBS and really don’t blame myself for indulging as this is indeed such an amazing range. I finished up the shea body butter recently but this fragrance is a head turner. It comes in a classic TBS EDT packaging of a cylindrical glass container with a long silver top which I think look very elegant. The spray quality is really good as it disperses the product evenly and does not spritz it onto a focus. Because it is a very travel friendly size of 30 mL, I have loved using it while travelling but I am very careful while keeping it in my handbag. I got this spongy sort of a pouch which stores my perfumes in my handbag and it keeps them from spilling or getting damaged.
To start off this has a very soothing bergamot zest to it which totally softens up my senses. A very comforting nutty scent follows which has a hint of musk to it. This is the heart of the fragrance and I am heads over heels in love with this part. There are hints of warm vanilla with mild lavender. I continue getting the soft shea right from the beginning which kind of grows around the middle. For me this fragrance is very feminine and soft. It is sweet in a savoury way 😛 I mean it is sweet but not sugary sweet, just enough to lighten up the mood. Remember candy sugar by Prada? This has a very faint sweet smell similar to that.
I love using this in the morning or evening, pretty much every time because I find it so soothing and calming. However, I would say that I am disappointed by its staying power which hardly crosses the mark of 3 hours. Other than that this baby hits all the spots bang on!
So in a nutshell, this baby is an absolute must have for my ladies who are into soft, vibrant and unique scents. This is one of those scents which puts a smile on my face and I hope it does on yours too. Too bad TBS does not have an EDP in the same range, I would have loved to get my hands onto that.

CONs of The Body Shop Shea Eau De Toilette
1. Staying power is a disappointment with this EDT.
2. Glass packaging may be a little difficult to travel with if one’s not careful.
1. Always apply perfumes on to the defined spots such as the pulse points and the neck area as this will give you a decent sillage and make the scent last slightly longer.
2. To prolong the smell, try layering up with the products of same range such as the body butter and body mist.
Will I Repurchase this?
Yes! Honestly yes!
(0.5 deducted basically for the staying power. )
