The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose

The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose

White Musk is one of my favourite scents. I'm sure you have all come across White Musk before, but for those who haven't, depending on the brand, it can include scents of Musk, Lily, Iris, Rose and Vanilla. A strong floral scent that most would probably describe as more suited to older beauties, but a scent I have personally loved since I was a young child. The Body Shop White Musk range is a firm favourite of mine, the very one I adored as a child, and if I am honest, I think The Body Shop do White Musk better than anyone else. I always have a White Musk EDT on my dresser and my favourite is The Body Shop White Musk 30ml Eau de Toilette (The Body Shop, £13) When I heard about the new White Musk Smoky Rose range from The Body Shop, I had to indulge and I treated myself to this set at Christmas which contains a 100ml White Musk Smoky Rose Fragrance Mist and a 60ml White Musk Smoky Rose Eau de Toilette, presented in an adorable, bright mauve heart shaped tin. Unfortunately the set itself is no longer available, a limited edition set for Christmas, but both can be picked up individually as well as more products in the range.

With a beautiful shade of mauve as it's colour theme, White Musk Smoky Rose has turned my attention away from the original White Musk. The scent is younger, with top notes of black smoky rose and tobacco flower, this is a much softer take on a famous and adored scent, that I am completely smitten with. Where I would turn to White Musk on an evening for a meal out or event, it can sometimes be a touch too much on the powerful side for day time use. Smoky Rose is the perfect in between of White Musk combined with a more seductive, soft floral scent with a kick of tobacco flower as a beautiful twist. I really adore the shape of The Body Shop EDT bottles, which are small and slightly rounded and very simplistic. They feel weighty, so not perfect for travelling but they look ever so lovely on a dresser. The perfume is incredible and has definitely become a most-reached for EDT. The scent lingers and changes ever so slightly the longer into wear, but in a way that makes the scent more subtle and more like White Musk. A modest £13 will get you a 60ml bottle (The Body Shop, £13) whereas a smaller 30ml bottle will cost £10 (The Body Shop, £10). Money wise, the 60ml is more value for money price per ml! The Smoky Rose Fragrance Mist (The Body Shop, £6.50) is just as lovely, and a daily must that doubles up nicely as an occasional room mist, too. I really adore the mist line from The Body Shop and own several scents already, they're just so delicious and long lasting! The scent doesn't linger as well as an EDT of course, but they last forever and they're fab for chucking in your handbag in the summer. I'm really glad I have the set and have been able to try two products from the range, and I think when I next need to stock up on bathroom essentials, I'll be indulging in the White Musk Smoky Rose Shower Gel (The Body Shop, 250ml, £6.50) and the accompanying Body Lotion (The Body Shop, 250ml, £10) If you're looking for a new scent, give Smoky Rose a go. I have a feeling you'll be just as besotted as I am...

  1. This looks like such a beautiful set. My sister is a fan of white musk whereas I am kind of on the fence about it. I might check this one out though because as you say, it's lighter and younger which is exactly what I would want. Great tip!

  5. I think the smoky rose musk smells like Guerlain's petit robe noire and would definitely have bought it if I didn't already have the Guerlain x
