Body Shop White Musk Libertine

Is a sister to the original White Musk range that The Body Shop already retails. 

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of their ever so popular White Musk range, they have introduced a 'sister' collection to it namely White Musk Libertine.

How is it different to the original White Musk? This contains 60% musk content as opposed to the original range which contained a lower amount. Also, the Libertine fragrance contains Musk at all notes namely top, heart and base. That is quite a lot of Musk for you musky fragrance lovers out there!

Personally, I despise the original White Musk fragrance that Body Shop currently sells hence I would not describe it as a 'sister' to this at all. It's a completely different fragrance in my opinion. 

The main ingredients in this are Turkish Delight, Chantilly Cream and Orchid, out of which Chantilly Cream is my absolute favourite. 

The fragrance itself is soft, sensual, slightly powdery, sweet yet musky, sophisticated yet girly. It's a day fragrance for sure but quite suitable for a night out too. The beauty about this is that its not overtly floral or sickeningly sweet at all. It's chic, feminine and mature due to which it is bound to be appreciated by almost all women. 

Being a Eau De Toilette, it has a pretty noticeable scent to it when initially applied. It's surprising, taking into account that EDT's usually contain less than 10% of the perfume oil concentration. I am sure the Eau De Parfum version of this will be even better.

It wears off soon which is a con to it probably, however I guess that comes along the nature of a EDT as the top notes are just meant to give a refreshing splash and not last all day long. 

Recently I have been layering this over Thierry Mugler's Angel and the combination is superb! I've gotten so many compliments on it. 

White Musk Libertine EDT(60ml) will retail for £14 at The Body Shop when released nationwide in October.

What a great idea - I might try layering it as on its own it can be quite light x

Great review! Though I am not a huge fan of musk, I am tempted to check it out mainly coz I love the smell of turkish delight and orchids! xoxo
