This pretty flanker attracted me immediately. It’s related to Body Shop White Musk and such a pretty shade of pale pink, how could I resist? Well, once I smelled it, it turns out that Body Shop White Musk Libertine was very easy to resist, much to my disappointment.
With a faint background of my beloved Body Shop White Musk, this is sadly ruined by a need to please the Tween market. This strikes me as ironic and I would bet my last penny that the majority of Body Shop White Musk fans are women of a certain age, such as moi, for whom it holds a fond nostalgia.
However, someone somewhere saw fit to add scents of Whipped Cream, Honey and Almonds. This would be great in a cake, but not so great on my skin. In fact, it’s more or less anosmic on me, fading as fast as it blooms, only to make a brief reappearance half an hour later before going again. If they had just kept the Rose and maybe a hint of Almond, they may have obtained the Turkish Delight vibe they were aiming for, but sadly I feel not much has been achieved here. Nice idea, nice bottle, but the result is bland and doesn’t stand out in a competitive market.
