The Body Shop White Musk Libertine

This fall, the Body Shop is celebrating the 30th anniversary of their popular White Musk fragrance with a new White Musk Libertine fragrance line.

Created by Dr Vincent Schaller and inspired by carefree modern libertines who are always ready for an adventure, the fragrance is sensual and playful with a unique composition of 65% rare musks. It opens with a contrast of spicy Turkish Delight with sweet Chantilly cream, which transition to the feminine middle notes of Sherry Baby Orchid and Taire flower while the base musk notes add a touch of warmth.

The White Musk Libertine line includes an Eau de Parfum (S$38.90/30ml), Eau de Toilette (S$26.90/30ml; S$36.90/60ml), Body Lotion (S$22.90), Bath & Shower Gel (S$16.90) and Body Mist (S$19.90). The fragrance is formulated with Community Fair Trade organic alcohol made from organic sugar from Ecuador. Currently, the Body Shop is offering two promotional sets with the EDT, which can be viewed here.

Personally, I liked the Eau de Parfum more than the Eau de Toilette as the comforting warm, floral character of White Musk Libertine is much more distinct in the Eau de Parfum but without being overpowering. It lingers on my skin for about three hours.

The body lotion is well-suited for Singapore's humid weather as it has a light consistency that absorbs readily into the skin without any greasy feeling. Its scent is far more subtle with less warmth than the Eau de Parfum.
