White Musk® Smoky Rose Eau de Parfum
I bought this on a whim and was positively surprised at the wonderful aroma when I sprayed it on today. Exactly as the name states it's a rosy, berry-like musk! The hint of musk adds mystery while the rose-berry quality adds a feminine touch that isn't too overpowering and definitely is not a "teen" or youngster scent. It's not a mature, too musky scent either so perfectly in the middle meaning early 20's-30's. The scent is just delicious and could be worn day or night! I'd say this is very different from the other "White Musk" fragrances-- more on the fruitier side with a musk base. If you like berry, rose, and musk then I would recommend trying this out :)

Would like more smoky incense
This is a nicely blended fragrance. It has a hint of incense but no smoke as far as I could tell. I wanted something really resinous, so the search continues.

True to its Name
This perfume is exactly what it says, a smoky rose.
The notes are so well blended that it smells like a nice concoction of rose, blackberry, vanilla, and incense. It has a grape-y quality- jammy quality to it- like crushed berries. The sillage is very close to the skin after the first 20 minutes, however, so you may need to carry the small bottle with you to reapply. Don't overspray at first, however, because this perfume packs a powerful punch.
I got complimented the first time I wore it. I don't know what the EDT smells like in comparison, so I cannot rate it to that. The Body Shop limited edition white musk flankers are fantastic and I'm sorry I haven't been buying more. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the lack of sillage after the first 20 minutes. Smoky Rose is now one of my favorite perfumes of all time, and I got it when the body shop was having its 40% off sale last week!!!
