The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose Eau De Toilette Review

One of the best fragrances from The Body Shop is their White Musk line. I feel they do their musks really well and since I have really liked White Musk and White Musk Libertine in the past, I was excited about White Musk Smoky Rose, which was launched last year. I have it in the lighter eau de toilette form, but I am definitely gonna go with eau de parfum after this bottle. So, what's so special about this fragrance, lets find out ..


This is a wonderful variation of the original White Musk scent, where I can smell the earthy, musky smells mixed with a truly rose fragrance. The rosy smell is so fresh, it reminds me of my wedding and all the roses around me. I really liked the rosy notes of Versace Bright Cystal and somehow I feel I am a rose kinda gal.  I think this one is very feminine and very me. Every time, I use a perfume with rose in it, I get hooked to it and I did not find this kind of a connection with the White Musk Libertine, which is another beautiful fragrance.

White Musk Smoky Rose is a fresh and seductive scent. The mysterious side of this perfume, for me, is the richness of it. It has some undertones of pomegranate too but I can't say much about tobacco flower as I don't know how it smells. In some ways, this scent has a bit of a retro feel, that takes me back in my childhood and maybe my mom wore something similar. So the fragrance itself is not that unique but its definitely something to have, especially at the price point The Body Shop offers.

Since I love this fragrance, I will go with Eau de Parfum the next time, since Eau de Toilette is not so long lasting and I never use it directly on skin, so eau de parfum should help. The Body Shop has a full line of products featuring the White Musk Smoky Rose fragrance.

White Musk Smoky Rose Eau de Toilette retails for CA$ 25 for 60ml and CA$17 for 30ml bottles.
