The Body Shop Perfume Oils !

This is my first time trying perfume oils. I have tried solid perfumes before but not oils, though for an everyday use, my favorite perfume type to use is just a good old spray form as they are so convenient and quick in my opinion. Oils and solid perfumes are great for travelling or on the go.

In today's post I am reviewing The Body Shop Red Musk Perfume Oil* and Fijian Water Lotus Perfume Oil*.

First, a bit about the fragrance, The Body Shop Red Musk is very different to any other perfume I have used before, it is spicy, smoky, sexy and very sultry and I love it. If that is what you look for in a perfume, definitely sniff this next time you are at The Body Shop. I love the fragrance but I would categorize it more as autumn/winter fragrance. Fijian Water Lotus Perfume is a mix of fresh, floral and aquatic and is perfect for summers. I have tried the body lotion from this range and loved it too.

What the company says

Red Musk Perfume Oil (30 ml - 34.95)
Our new Red Musk™ Perfume Oil is a sophisticated blend of seductive spices and cruelty-free musk. It is a deeply sensual fusion of stimulating pepper complemented with notes of intriguing aphrodisiac cinnamon and alluring tobacco.
  •     Lasting spiced musk fragrance
  •     Contains cruelty-free musk
  •     Alcohol-free
  •     Notes of cinnamon and tobacco 

Fijian Water Lotus Perfume Oil (15 ml - 8.95 AUD)
Escape to the island paradise of Fiji where we discovered a breathtakingly beautiful water lotus. This sparkling, floral-aquatic scent featuring the precious scent of water lotus flower, is like a breeze of fragrance straight from the Pacific.
  • Fresh aquatic-floral scent
  • Long-lasting
  • Alcohol-free 
I love the concept of perfume oils, you can layer them with perfumes or body lotions for added fragrance. You can also add a few drops in your body lotion. 

I like the packaging, the small cute bottles look good on your vanity and are a perfect size to carry in your makeup bag. The applicator picks up the perfect amount and is easy and non messy to use. Both the perfume oils are strong when you apply them and last on me for around 4 hours.

Overall I like the perfume oils and love the fragrance of both, I like that they can be used in different ways. I would have preferred them to be a bit more long lasting. The throw of the perfume oils is also moderate. 
This product was provided for consideration. However, I was not paid for it. My reviews and opinions are always honest.
