When asked if I like my scent floral or fruity, my answer is always "spicy." My friends find it really odd how I prefer my fragrance more masculine than feminine. Most women I know go for the just-out-of-the-shower fresh clean scent or something light or girly. Not me. 

So when The Body Shop sent me a package with a note that says "...its our most enticing scent to date." I quickly unwrapped it. And I wasn't disappointed, and quite surprised actually that finally, they came out with something that I would probably use daily, even during daytime.



The Body Shop has recently launched The Forbidden Flower Body Range. With desire and euphoria in mind as the inspiration to this range, each product in the collection contains a captivating blend of sultry spices, elegant florals and earthy woody notes. One spritz and first thing that would come to mind would be seduction. True to their word, it is definitely Body Shop's most enticing body range to date. 



Forbidden Flower Eau de Toilette (P750.00)
This fragrance blends spices with seductive florals and woody notes for a desirable and distinct fragrance. 

Forbidden Flower Shower Gel (P395.00)
Lather up with this rich, black and seductive Smoky Poppy Shower Gel. Infused with hand harvested poppy extract from Turkey, the euphoric scent will make shower-time a whole new experience.

Forbidden Flower Body Butter (P695.00) and Body Lotion (P750.00)
Succumb to silky-smooth skin with a moisturizer that's infused with the extract of oil-rich poppies that leaves skin feeling desirably soft.

Another new fragrance of The Body Shop is the Red Musk fragrance.



It's a bold scent with a non-conformist attitude. It features no flowers, only a bold blend of musk and spices. Compared to The Forbidden Flower, this one's spicier and sexier with a hot blend of cruelty-free musk and notes of pepper, cinnamon and tobacco. It's feminine, but not in a girly kind of way. The warmth of the cinnamon blended well with the sharpness of pepper, making this a distinctly hot and irresistible choice for women who like to defy conventions and challenge the rules of femininity. It's available in a gift box 100ml (P3,395.00), Eau de Parful 60ml (1,590.00), Peftume Oil (P1,095.00) as an introduction to the alluring collection.
