Shay & Blue London Blueberry Musk was included as a sample in the recent Perfume Society Heavens Scent Discovery Box. I’ve tried and reviewed several Shay & Blue London scents now and have yet to find one I dislike. In fact, I wore Shay & Blue English Cherry Blossom throughout most of Spring last year and will probably do so again.
Blueberry Musk was a bit of a surprise. There I was, expecting something with musky berries akin to L’Artisan Parfumeur Mure et Musc, when what do I get but a flashback to the Body Shop 1986. Yes, there’s a big suggestion of Dewberry here. If you were a fan of that, then you’ll be a fan of this. However, this is no mere 80s throwback, my friends. With big, beautiful middle notes of magnolia and jasmine, this is more of a modern white floral with a deliciously fruity twist. There’s no sugary sweetness though- which would have put me off. I’ve always thought blueberries were a touch musky anyway, so they are particularly well served by the musky finish.
This could well be a Shay & Blue London bestseller. Deliciously light and pretty, with a playful dab of Dewberry, I do believe I am in full bottle territory.
