The body shop launched its new "Black Musk" in Karachi on the 21st of November. The event was named " Black Musk Hunt" it Was a nicely planned event by Constantine PR where the bloggers were supposed to pair with another to search for three of key ingredients; Bambinella Pear, Licorice and Black Vanilla all across the mall in less time were to be declared as a winner. Guess What! Me along with my partner blogger Jee Bee - Bakhtawar of The Glam World" won the hunt and Each were given a gift hamper worth around 20k (200 USD)... 
Black Musk is announced as the darkest and the most sensual of all the scents. It represents a contrast between light, sweet flavors and dark musk with oriental woods. The creation is signed by Cecile Matton and Ralf Schwieger.

The opening of the composition symbolizes desire with notes of sweet pear infused with pink pepper and bergamot. Intense aroma of heliotrope, which varies between marzipan and almond, is interspersed with ylang-ylang and aphrodisiac notes of licorice. Hot black vanilla, musk black, earthy patchouli, vetiver and chocolate end the composition.



The Gift Hamper
review :

The best part about Body Shop products is they use cruelty-free ingredients and the musk itself is synthetic and not actually  extracted from the glands of male deer.

Top Notes : Bergamot Pear Pink Pepper.
Middle Notes : Heliotrope Ylang-Ylang Licorice.
Base Notes : Black Vanilla Husk Black Musk Patchouli Vetiver Chocolate

Packaging : I am a sucker for cute packaging and this one is surely cute for my liking ... a black bottle with fuschia pink detailing through the label makes it look really eye catching .
Scent : it's the most intense musk of all 3 musk by TBS. The fragrance is defined as "Sweet on the outside. Fierce on the inside" which makes it really feminine and sexy. I personally prefer musky, floral  and subtle scents so this scent has really grew on me.

Lasting : the longevity of this EDP is not really good It fades away quite quickly. The Body Shop says you can get 6-8 hours of wear out of it but it last hardly 3 to 4 hours on me.

Price & Availabiltiy : Black Musk EDP 50ml is priced PKR 6070 and is now available nationwide at all The Body Shop outlets. For more info, check their Facebook page HERE.It's also available online at and you can use code "J4GBR5" to get  5% off your bill :)
