~Review:The Body Shop Red Musk Eau de Perfume~

The valentine's Day is just around the corner so isn't it the best time to review this scandalous perfume!Yes its none other than the Red Musk Eau de Perfume by The Body Shop.
This was recently launched in Pakistan & luckily I was there at its launch event.
Something about the Red Musk from the creators:
Red musk involves unusual spices oil extracts and not flowers for the aroma. Thanks to the Arabs and European explorers who contributed in spreading them around the globe, immensely broadening their use. The Body Shop didn't take it for granted and made the best use out of the three. The Body Shop re-released 'musk' which was being craved by their loyal customers for long by making use of pepper, cinnamon and tobacco. Red musk is a bold and blunt combination of the three being used efficiently and effectively for the aroma therapy. Red Musk by The Body Shop being the first fragrance with man-made cruelty-free musk. 

~What I have to say about the Red Musk~
The moment I held the package in my hand for the first time I knew this was not something ordinary but something that will have people raving about it.Not just that this is the first man made cruelty free musk by The Body Shop but the thing that makes it stand apart is that it has

Yes its not that flowery scent that at once freshens up your minds and gives you the power to do the impossible-Yet--One spritz of this warm and sexy smelling musk and you are in heaven--Yes Its deefinitely one of the most scandalous perfumes I have ever used.It was marketed and advertised as feminine but if the option was given to me I would term this one as Unisex as it is a mixture of Tobacco-Cinnamon & Pepper!
I am totally in love with this perfume and would definitely love to wear it on this valentine's dinner with my hubby or any celebration dinner etc.It may be Unisex but its definitely not Girly-Intriguing Isn't it..Yes its for all those confident & bold ladies that love to Spice Things Up!
Usually musk is considered as a strong perfume but this is not strong that at once makes your head spin but its very moderate.
The top note is Pepper:It adds an addictive note to the scent
The heart or middle note is Cinnamon:Its sweet yet strong scent makes the perfume irresistable
The bottom or base note is tobacco:Though tobacco is mostly used in male fragrances but here it gives the perfume an  aura of mystery & this is the note that makes the perfume Unisex as well.
The packaging is as lovely as the perfume itself.The box is pure red & made from hard cardboard.Its a perfect gift for valentine's day.The bottle itself is in two shades.Lower half is transparent while the upper half has a warm reddish brown hue.The cap clicks tightly in place to make sure its safe.The bottle is simple yet elegant to hold.
The staying power off the perfume is decent.I sprayed it in the morning and by the night I could still smell it.
So if you want to surprise your partner on valentines either gift him/her a bottle of Red Musk or if you have it yourself then spritz it on because its the
