They told me The Body Shop Red Musk Eau de Parfum smelled like cinnamon and intense tobacco. So I ran away screaming, arms flaying above my head. Rewind….I remember in a land not so far away the first time I was told Lush Ginger smelled like an old ashtray. Not appealing at all. I tried it skeptically and fell head over and heels in love with it.
Don’t write off The Body Shop Red Musk Eau de Parfum notes because although they sound like an odd pairing this fragrance is perfect for the grown up in us all.
Although I like rainbows, unicorns, sweet, and fruity notes in my perfumes sometimes, on occasion, I like to play grown up and I’ll purchase some ridiculously I can’t afford this perfume that’s very sophisticated.
Fun fact about The Body Shop Red Musk Eau de Parfum is very grown up, very sophisticated, and very cheap.
I need a backup. As for you, well you just NEED it.
This is incredible. It’s actually in three different formats that range in price from $24 to $45. But let’s face it you never pay full price for anything at the Body Shop. I was recently given a sample of the The Body Shop Red Musk Perfume Oil and after smelling it I instantly headed online and grabbed the large Red Musk Eau De Parfum for $47 (after sale pricing I probably paid $35 or so for it).
It was worth every dime I paid for.
The fragrance has a high end $100 plus formula. It’s spicy, it’s warm, it’s gorgeous. I don’t know how else to describe. It’s a very unique scent that’s perfect for those that like warm, spicy, sultry fragrances. There are notes of cinnamon but personally I think the musk they used overpowers the cinnamon and intensifies the smokiness of the fragrance giving it a very sexy finish. It reminds me of a warm hug from a man. It feminine, yet slightly masculine too. Warm, comforting, slightly spicy…I feel like Stefon but rather than, “This place has everything…” I’m saying, “This perfume has everything…”
The perfume oil wears well for me with excellent throw and linger. The actually perfume seems stronger and had an even longer linger and excellent throw with a single spritz! Needless to say I was quite happy with the formula as it works well for my body chemistry!
No flowers here, no sugar, no fruit, just warm, spicy sexiness.
You absolutely NEED The Body Shop Red Musk Eau de Parfum if you like unique, unconventional fragrances. This can work for either women or men in my humblest.
It’s available now at the Body Shop or online at www.thebodyshop-usa.com.
Disclaimer: I was given a bottle of the perfume oil by The Body Shop’s PR Department but I purchased the bottle of perfume myself.
