Blackcurrant/blackberry scents are very popular at the moment. The Body Shop’s offering, White Musk Smoky Rose, has been on my locker for the past few weeks. It’s not unlike Lanvin Couture or Lancome Midnight Rose but of course it’s far cheaper.
Does it smell like the original White Musk? Absolutely not. It’s quite a delicate scent, rose of course but much more than that. It’s warm and spicy, sweet yet a little mysterious.
- Top notes: Bergamot, pink pepper, blackcurrant
- Middle notes: Tobacco blossom, black rose, orange blossom, immortelle
- Base Notes: Olibanum and white musk
Smokey rose is the the perfect name for this fragrance. The dry down is nice and nowhere near as musky as the first spray. It doesn’t wear very well on my skin unfortunately, four hours at most but other people may have better luck! I’m usually a fan of light scents, they suit my personality better. Musks and seductive scents aren’t really me. This one is for fans of heavier perfumes.
Definitely a stand out fragrance for The Body Shop.
