I like The Body Shop. I really do. I’m just not an insane fanatic groupie when it comes to their stuff. It’s mainly creams and body stuffs which are things I like. But honestly since I’ve been so hot and flashy lately, those are things my hormonally challenged body just can’t take at the moment. I can’t even look a body moisturizers without sweating… 😛
And sure, I realize that The Body Shop do fragrance. Glazed Apple, Strawberry, Mango…your basic fruit salad fragrances is what they mainly create. NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WROING WITH THAT. It’s just not…Tracy. I don’t know, fruity fragrances are for happy go lucky types-not middle-aged, snarky types like moi.
And then, I met The Body Shop Red Musk Eau De Parfum. No flowers. No fruit. So ME. Even the bottle I like. It’s simple and not fussy.
The Body Shop describes Red Musk Eau De Parfum as “spiced musk with hot notes of cinnamon and intense tobacco for a distinctly different fragrance”. Kind of a scary fragrance description, hey? Honestly, I don’t really smell the cinnamon so much. If you think this is gonna smell like Big Red Gum (which is what I thought) don’t worry! It doesn’t. The cinnamon just gives a bit of warmth to the fragrance. And if you’re scared of the tobacco in it? Again, don’t be. It’s subdued. I promise you won’t smell like a fireplace full of cinnamon hearts! It’s like a warm winter hug that’s just perfect for this time of year.
If you’ve been wanting to try a fragrance that’s different, out of the norm, not floral… wanting to venture into something a bit more masculine but not SO masculine like say some Tom Ford fragrances like Tobacco Vanille??? Then The Body Shop Red Musk Eau De Parfum is what you’ve been looking for. It lasts forever too! Impressive staying power! And at $37, it’s a great price! Highly recommend it!
Have you tried any different fragrances this year? Something out of your comfort zone?
