Sweet on the Outside, Fierce on the Inside. That is the The Body Shop‘s latest fragrance range, Black Musk for you. They say it is the darkest, most sensual musk of all and it really is a sexy little number!
Envelop yourself in luscious, mouth-watering notes of bambinella pear, spiked with pink pepper and bergamot accords to capture pure desire. Be captivated by delicately sensual heliotrope – an intoxicating scent that oscillates between marzipan and almond – intertwined with a stimulating aphrodisiac touch of the mysterious gourmand liquorice root accord. Then gradually be seduced by the deep and powerfully addictive trail of warm bewitching black vanilla, magnetic black musk, earthy patchouli and chocolate-like vetiver notes.
Range includes – Eau de Toilette 60ml, Eau de Parfum 50ml and Perfume Oil 20ml, all in deep black bottles with a hint of pink.
Price of EDP – Rs 3295
Packaging – Love the dark black bottle with the hint of hot pink which gives it the “Naughty and Nice” appeal.
Review – The Black Musk is a more intense fragrance than its predecessors White Musk and Red Musk. It is supposed to combine light and dark elements to create an alluring fragrance. Black Musk is totally my kind of perfume. On the first spray, it comes out quite sweet but then it settles to a light woody musk fragrance. I like that the fragrance is not overwhelming and too intense. On me, perfumes usually do not last too long which is rather unfortunate. Black Musk lasts for around 2-3 hours.
The Black Musk EDT and EDP contain Community Fair Trade organic alcohol crafted from sugar cane that is harvested by cooperatives in South America. In Cotopaxi, Ecuador, smallholder farmers re-plant the trees they use to heat this sugar. When you buy the products, you are not only buying a fragrance for yourself, you are also helping farmers to grow their business while sustainably protecting the land.
If like me, you are a fan of musky, woody fragrances, you will love Black Musk. Inspired by the Naughty and Nice tagline, I’ve created a look that shows the Nice and girly side of me. There is a Naughty and fierce side as well but that’s for another post 🙂
