The Body Shop Introduces White Musk Smoky Rose Fragrance Collection


The Body Shop was pleased to add a bold new addition to its iconic cruelty-free White Musk range, introducing you the White Musk Smoky Rose Collection.

First launched at The Body Shop in 1981, the original White Musk fragrance was called Musk 2385 and it became White Musk shortly after. White Musk was one of the first man-made, cruelty-free musk fragrances to arrive on the market place in replacement of real musk, which is extracted from the civet deer via cruel and painful methods.

The White Musk Smoky Rose range consists of Body Wash, Body Lotion (not shown above), Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette and Fragrance Mist. I was pleased to receive the range except the Body Lotion recently and many thanks to The Body Shop Singapore. :D

The White Musk Smoky Rose is a tantalizing floriental fragrance that takes on the night, an alluring evening scent that unleash your inner rebel.

This darkly seductive scent opens with an elegant fusion of bergamot, pink pepper and blackcurrent before rising to a floral-musky heart. And, a beguiling bouquet of bitter-sweet tobacco flower and a unique black smoky rose accord is tempered by delicate orange flower. This melts into a sophisticated blend of cruelty-free sensual musks, immortelle flower and olibanum to create a daring fragrance like no other.

White Musk Smoky Rose Body Wash, retailing at S$16.90, is a bath & shower gel that lathers up rather well and I actually like its intensely musky fragrant that lingers on my skin. I’m glad that this soup-free gel doesn’t dry out my skin.

If you like something light and airy, this White Musk Smoky Rose Fragrance Mist, priced at S$20.90, will be an ideal choice. This lightly-scented Fragrance Mist is most diluted and lasts the shortest amount of time as compared to Eau de Toilette and Parfum. I like to wear this Fragrance Mist after a shower (with White Musk Smoky Rose Body Wash) and I can re-spritze the mist whenever I feel like it. As Fragrance Mist has light forms of scents, hence it is an ideal choice for hot and humid weather as it doesn’t mix with sweat that may smell odd later.

White Musk Smoky Rose Eau de Parfum is the most concentrated with the most fragrant oils and least alcohol. It lasts the longest and the scent is the purest. It lasts from morning till night and the scent stays rather fresh as the day wears on. This intense fragrance is retailing at only S$39.90.

White Musk Smoky Rose Eau de Toilette, priced at S$28.90, has a lighter scent and it is less overpowering than Eau de Parfum. It can last longer than Fragrance Mist but shorter than Eau de Parfum. I like to spray the Eau de Toilette on the pulse points behind my ears and on my chest.


Daring to Support… Community Fair Trade

In 2009, instead of using cheaper standard alcohol like other beauty brands, The Body Shop have always dared to do things differently by sourcing organic, Community Fair Trade alcohol to use in its fragrances. This alcohol is produced from organic sugar cane grown by farmers from the CADO cooperative in Ecuador. This trade helps give members control of their pricing and production schedules, providing a steady income to help pay for food, health and education, and to plan for the future.

Do you know?

Pure musk is a unique fragrance ingredient that is difficult to recreate in the laboratory, and a Nobel Prize for Chemistry was awarded to the team which first cracked the problem. The Body Shop was one of the first beauty brands in the world to use man-made musk, and has now trademarked White Musk in over 63 countries in the world in order to protect the unique, heritage scent.


White Musk Smoky Rose Collection is now available at all The Body Shop outlets. For more info, please visit their website at :
