Do you know real musk is extracted from the civet deer using cruel and painful methods? However, there’s no need to be cruel to enjoy this fragrance. The Body Shop has its own iconic cruelty-free White Musk range since 1981.

Adding on to its wildly-popular range, The Body Shop has launched White Musk Smoky Rose. Developed by renowned perfumer Sopphie Labbe, the scent is seductive and elegant at the same time – a fusion of bergamot, pink pepper, blackcurrant, bitter-sweet tobacco flower, black smoky rose accord, orange flower and olibanum.

I love the design of the range, its purple and white packaging makes it classy and elegant. Its contents are a huge draw as well. The fragrance is fresh yet mysterious at the same time – definitely an enigmatic fragrance to wear for the night. I particularly love the body lotion and fragrance mist, both of which are an indulgent way to give myself a pampering before I head to bed. I love how the smell continue to linger even in the day when I wake up.

I usually stay away from overly feminine scents (because I’m a man) but this fragrance is classy and gender-neutral, plus it’s subtle as well. On top of that, did I also mention that it’s affordable?
