Fragrance Review – The Body Shops New White Musk Libertine

On the 30th anniversary of White Musk, The Body Shop launched White Musk Libertine. It is a more floral, mature take on the original.

I would describe it as floral and feminine musk. It’s quite powdery and much more sophisticated than any Body Shop fragrance I’ve tested. For those of you with a sharper nose, and better descriptive skills, White Musk Libertine was developed by perfumer Vincent Schäller; notes include  Turkish delight, Chantilly cream, orchid and signature musk. It doesn’t remind of the original at all. Which is probably a good thing – I don’t need any reminders of my teenage years.

Although it’s soft enough to be worn during the day, I would feel more comfortable wearing this one at night – I always feel that way about powdery fragrances.

I have the eau de toilette version which is softer but as you would expect, it doesn’t last an eternity. That’s normal. All in all, it’s a lovely soft, chic scent. Much more grown up that the original White Musk!

White Musk Libertine costs from €14.
