The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Perfume- Review

 

The-Body-Shop-White-Musk-Libertine-Perfume- Review

After trying out (and totally liking) The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Body Wash, we thought of laying our hands on the entire white musk libertine range, but as the luck would have it, the body mist was out of stock at their store, so we had to make do with just the perfume. However, it absolutely is one of the best purchases we’ve made in quite some time. And as you read along, we’ll tell you why.

Price: Rs. 2295

Quantity- 60 ml

They have a 30 ml packaging too.

Product Description by the Company-

A bold new twist on musk, the sensual eau de parfum features a heady blend of cruelty free musks at its top, heart and base, with sweet notes of Turkish delight, Baby orchid and Chantilly cream.

  • Sensual floral musk scent contains cruelty free musk.
  • Lasting eau de parfum.

Packaging-

The packaging is absolutely pretty. The glass bottle has a matte finish, and the pink floral shade fades away at the top. The cap has a very vintage feel to it (and makes it look very expensive). Overall, we’d say we really love the packaging- classic and refined.

About the Product-

The smell is very beautiful- it’s mild, feminine, and very sophisticated. Musk is everywhere- if we specify each note, there’s musk with Chantilly cream at the base, musk with Turkish delight in the middle and musk with a tinge of grapefruit at the crown. What we really like about the smell is that it is absolutely feminine- nothing loud and garish (sometimes, some smells tend to give one a headache). It’s more ladies like and welcoming, creating a charming aroma around you.

Another unique thing about this perfume is that it’s created from cruelty free musk, a characteristic that is seldom found.

The only problem with this (otherwise sexy perfume) is that it does not last. The scent hardly lasts for 2-3 hours, which is a big disappointment.

The Bright Side of The Body Shop Libertine White Musk Eau De Parfum-

  • Great packaging
  • Perfect smell: mysterious, adventurous, fun and feminine: typical of the modern day woman
  • Cruelty free musk
  • Mild lingering smell
  • Easily available
  • Easy and smooth spraying
  • Not loud or tasteless smelling.

The Bummers-

  • The staying power is really sad. It fades away very quickly. Doesn’t even last for 2 hours.
  • People who appreciate strong fragrances may not like it.

The Verdict-

We’ll give this scrumptious smelling perfume a 4 on 5. The one star is obviously deducted for the unsatisfactory lasting power.
