    Default Body Shop White Musk for men: Thoughts, comaparisons anyone?

    I was walking by the Body Shop and saw this fragrance. I did spray a bit on myself, but found it very light, although pleasant. I figured it could be a good workplace fragrance. Does anyone own this or know if it comaprable to other scents with white musk, say Thierry Mugler's Cologne?

    I like this but there is no longevity and the dry down is uninteresting. The top and middle notes are better.

    Hhm, the best way to describe this frag is a mixture of armani - Code and bruno banani-Not for Everybody. Its a plain scent, i dont really detect much comlexity nor change during the time it dries down.
    Inoffensive, warm and even if you grew a disliking towards it, for the 20 $it costs, it would still be a formidable room spray.

    This being my review of some 12 months ago or so but I have to admit I havent smelled it since.

    I remember it casually nice, not very dirty, spicy or polarising in any way.
    Its an alright white musk.

    Mugler cologne is better IMO. White Musk is soft and a little powdery and not as fresh as Mugler cologne.

    Body Shop White Musk feels a little too harsh to me, it gives me headaches... I'm probably a little sensitive to certain white musks.

    I like it. I often apply it at night after a shower/before bed.

    I like it and it is very good value for money. VERY similar to Armand Basi Pour Homme.

    I've only tried the womens. While it wasn't my thing, it's very similar to the Tom Ford's and is what I'd buy in preference if I ever started hankering after clean, plain musk.

    I like the first 30 minutes or so of it's progression, but then it just turns too powdery for me.
    I refuse to sink.

    Great for the money. Not complex, but sometimes you don't want to be complex.

    to me it has an armani mixed with bulgari ph vibe...its a white soap, white musk and rubber concoction and i freakin love it...i like the bottle too.

    I dont think that mugler cologne is musk though i have seen it described as such...mugler to me is comparable to gendarme
    Current Top 5:
