Musk makes its way easily into the list of my favourite scents. This one, is just pure musk love, one of my all time favourite scents and I just cannot have enough of it.
This also was one of the first fragrances that I had tried from the body shop and ultimately I found myself picking up almost all their scents. Especially their scents which have “Musk” as the hero of the notes.

In Detail The Body Shop White Musk Eau De Toilette Review and My Experience
Look at that packaging, isn’t it so feminine and elegant? I love this classic packaging which gives a sense of luxury in the most humble way. TBS has kept is simple and charming by going easy on the labels. The bottle is made of glass but the top is actually made of plastic. Quite a sensible thing to do since we drop the bottle caps more often. This also has a very small and convenient size and I love carrying it in my handbag when I want to.
Speaking about its fragrance. First and the foremost let me tell you, this is one of the best musk fragrance out there. If you love musk, you love this! Yes you do! As I spray this on, I smell pure musk which builds up within minutes. The musk here is very soft and comforting, not at all heavy. This sensuous and velvety tender musk stays prominent throughout the wear time. I also get some white floral and vanilla hints around the middle which compliment the scent very well. If you about fragrances, you will also notice some glazed peaches near the end. Though the notes mention some roses, they are not very obvious here.
Overall I am in love with this sensuous and velvety musk scent. It is musky, woody, with some white floral and vanilla hints in the background. Makes you feel elegant and feminine. The sillage with this scent is amazing. Whenever I have a gush of wind pass by me, I can smell this in the air and almost feel like closing my eyes to get mesmerised by this beauty. In fact I have had hundreds of compliments on this scent which continue even today when I wear it.
The wear time with this sweetheart is somewhere between 4 to 5 hours which I find decent. As I feel this is wearing off, I re-spray this on since this has a perfect size to be carried in my bag. I have been using this fragrance for more than 5-6 years now and I have to say I will continue adoring this till I can for it indeed is a signature musk which speaks to me through my olfactory centre. 😀
