The Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine

The Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine_4

The first time I laid my eyes on The Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine parfum range, I knew that this fragrance edition needs to be added to my personal collection asap! I have always preferred floral fragrances over fruity scents and this one was an instant hit with me. Boxed in a very artistic packaging, the Indian-ness of this edition reflects well right from treating your eyes to your smelling senses! As per the older reviews available online, the packaging was very different which has been customised and restocked on the extensive demand of the product. What’s The Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine? Since ancient times, Indian women have used jasmine flowers to perfume and adorn their hair. Jasmine’s small, fine flower reveals a strong scent that reaches its most powerful intensity at night. In India, we extracted Jasmine essence from hundreds of freshly-picked flowers to compose a unique warm and intensely heady white floral fragrance at heart deepened by notes of sandalwood and vanilla. My Experience Hands down, I have been sold on the idea of Mughal inspired Jasmine fragrance by The Body Shop. Having been born and brought up in Delhi, I have always had a soft corner for everything Mughal. The wild bushes of Jasmine flowers are spread across the capital city of India and are loved and enjoyed by every resident of the city, each summer! Loved the Orange against a monochrome Mehendi design packaging of this one. The actual EDT bottle is a glass bottle and has has an old fashion parfum silhouette to match the Mughal feel of it. The fragrance is of medium strength with a base tone of course being the jasmine flower. The top and medium notes consist of a strong tangerine hint which evolves from the concoction of orange, sandalwood, musk and vanilla fragrances. I can …

The Body Shop Black Musk EDP Review

March 1, 2016
The Body Shop Black Musk4

The Body Shop Black Musk might sound like a super dark concussion of ingredients that might be a little too powerful for a woman’s application but it is actually a balanced blend of fruity and sweet ingredients. This fragrance is not at all dark, but has a powerful spirit that definitely stands out amongst the array of musk based EDPs that are available in the market. The newest fragrance addition to The Body Shop’s huge range of fragrances is the ‘Black Musk’ range that comes in perfume, EDT and EDP formula. When I first lay my hands on this bottle of goth, I was prepared to whiff overpowering tones of musk with faint hints of vanilla. But to my surprise, the formula is a pleasing balance of black vanilla with hints of musk with the sweet notes of a pear. Prolly this is the reason why it has been introduced as being ‘naughty & nice’ as it tends to blend in the powerful base notes with feminine top notes. The Packaging Honestly, I am quite happy with its packaging. Especially the EDP, that comes in a compact black bottle which is light, strong and easy to apply. The entire black with violet colour scheme of the packaging stands out amongst other delicately packed fragrance bottles by The Body Shop. It is definitely travel friendly and fits in even in my hand bag without the fear of spoiling the contents upon uncapping. The Usage I spray the EDP behind my ears and on my front neckline. The fragrance lasts for a good 4-5 hours with all the notes settling in within a span of 30-40 minutes. About the Black Musk Range Become brazenly seduced by the dual scent persona of Black Musk Fragrance. The Body Shop’s Black Musk Fragrance is the darkest and …

Well, I’m pretty sure your attention has been caught by the title of this article. Who doesn’t like receiving gifts, right? And if the gift happens to be from an abode of beauty + fragrance, like The Body Shop, things just can’t get any merrier than that! But before you all scroll down to participate in the giveaway, their are two major things that I’d like to share with y’all. The Body Shop Holiday Gift Boxes Like each year, The Body Shop, always gives us a reason to indulge in some pampering therapy during the holiday season. This time too, they have come up with pretty packaging and various gifting options to suit every pocket. For those who are looking at gifting an entire range of bath and body products to their loved ones, The Body Shop has introduced Deluxe Gifting Sets. And for those who are planning on gifting everyone something, they have come up with Mini Gifting Sets that are pocket friendly and offer variants in travel friendly sizes. I happen to have received their Frosted Cranberry Mini Gift Set, which is from their limited edition range. Each mini set consists of 1 Cranberry Body Butter, 1 Cranberry Body Wash and a Cranberry Lily (Loofah). The gift set came just in time when I was leaving for a destination wedding and so I ended up taking this travel friendly pack along. The Cranberry Body Butter smells divine and will definitely be a hit for those who like fruity fragrances. The consistency of the body butter is creamy, which makes it apt to use during the winter season.
