The Body Shop - White Musk

Hello everyone!

So I know I did a perfume review yesterday but I discovered this eau de toilette by The Body Shop in White Musk today in my bedroom so I thought it appropriate to review today!  I was bought this eau de toilette in a mini travel set which also came with a make up bag, a miniature shampoo and conditioner and a miniature mango shower gel. 

Anyway, so as I said, it's a White Musk scent and is in a relatively plain bottle as it's a high street perfume.  I have the 30ml bottle so it's also pretty small in size so very handy for travelling.




The scent itself is advertised as a mix of musk, lily, iris, rose and vanilla. Smelling it at first, well I think it smells like vodka! But leave it for a couple of minutes and it develops into a more tender smell.  It reminds me very much of the smell of a classic bar of soap so it's quite a clean smell as if you've just showered or bathed.

As for my opinion, I kind of like it but it's not something I would particularly choose for myself but I'm sure others would like it.  To me it doesn't have that kind of special perfume smell that you get from pricier, designer bottles.

However it is very highly rated on The Body Shop website so it may be worth a look at next time you're  shopping as this 30ml bottle retails at just £10.00!! So if you're on a budget it would be well worth looking at their range of fragrances as there is a large selection.

See you in the next post!

  2. This is such a nice smell but I think i'm the same as you, not quite for me. The Satsuma one is AMAZING though xx

  6. I haven't smelled that one, but I'll have to try it out. For that price, it could work as an 'inbetween' perfume for when I can't quite afford to restock on my favourite designer one! It's a pretty colour, at least! x

    1. That's exactly what I was thinking. You don't have to worry about using it up quickly because of how cheap but nice it is and then use special designer ones one special occasions! Yeah I love the colour of the bottle!

      Headed over to check out your blog now :-)
