I have to confess that left to my own devices I wouldn’t even think to spritz this in store – it’s all the wrong connotations to me and just the look of it makes me feel it’s going to smell like the 1970s. I guess I’m thinking joss sticks and ethnic skirts with bells on.
However, not a bit of it! The Body Shop Red Musk is actually very sophisticated – it smells like a proper perfume! It’s a warm, skin scent that, with the absence of floral notes merges into your own natural scent. Don’t let the notes of pepper, spiced musk, tobacco and cinnamon put you off – this isn’t a blast of foodie spice but a sensual hit of amplified, musky skin. It’s really very sexy with a unisex element – I’d go so far as to say anyone is going to smell better with this on than not.
I think the packaging is wrong, but the scent is all kinds of right – if you’re in the Body Shop post launch (4th November) give it a spritz – I think Red Musk might surprise you!
I’ve got some Green Apple scented products from The Body Shop to review, too – that’s a whole other story! The Body Shop Red Musk is £20.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
