The Body Shop releases Black Musk range, with a sensual scent in time for Valentine’s Day

Filed by Lucire staff/February 11, 2016/5.28

In time for Valentine’s Day: the Body Shop’s Black Musk fragrance blends the powerful pheromones of musk with some sweet scents. It’s an oriental-style fragrance, with top notes of bambinella pear, pink pepper and bergamot, mid-notes of helitrope and licorice, and basenotes of black vanilla and black musk. The 30 ml eau de toilette is a great way to get a taste of the fragrance (RRP NZ$41·50), but we’d go for the 50 ml eau de parfum (NZ$70·50). There’s also a 100 ml fragrance mist (NZ$29·95), 250 ml body lotion (NZ$30·95) and 250 ml shower gel (NZ$21·50).
   The big bonus here: the musk that’s used is cruelty-free, sourced from Community Trade cooperatives in South America. The Body Shop notes that farmers in Cotopaxi, Ecuador replant the trees used to heat the sugar cane that the musk comes from. Scent-wise, it’s a contrast to the Body Shop’s lighter, iconic White Musk that the company launched in 1981, which also saw its musk sourced from a cruelty-free producers.
