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.

Recently, I was pleased to receive Kiehl’s latest ‘smart’ multi-targeted advanced anti-aging moisturizer - Super Multi-Corrective Cream – that is said to help fight multiple signs of aging in just 2 weeks. Received a full size and a travel size for myself and my mom. :D

Aging is nevertheless an inevitable process. Have you noticed any signs of aging lately? If you have not, lucky you! If you do, what are the signs of aging have you noticed? Thankfully, with the advanced technologies in the recent years, I’m glad we are able to age more gracefully and slower than it was back then when there were only day vs night moisturizers to choose from.

I believe many of you, like me, will address everything that is causing us to look older such as :

  • Exercise for a youthful figure
  • Hair color to mask grey hair
  • Healthy diet to prevent age related disease
  • Anti-aging products for younger looking skin

Kiehl’s chemists took this same ‘complete’ approach in their battle against the signs of aging skin. Instead of focusing on the individual concerns related to aging skin, Kiehl’s took a mult-functional approach by targeting multiple key signs of aging, and introducing us the Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream. It is said to help lift, firm, redefine skin contours and re-texturize skin within 2 weeks with double efficacy shown within 4 weeks.
