The way I see it:
When TBS came up with the White Musk Range, it was an instant hit. Everyone I knew was wearing it and smelling of it.It was such a distinguishable fragrance. Just amazing.

WHITE MUSK LIBERTINE is a generic fragrance except that I find it has a slightly more musk making it bold and romantic. It oozes sensuality.

I got this as a present from my dad on Valentine’s Day. He got a friend of his to buy it for me and deliver it personally. I guess he remembered me begging him for it every time we passed TBS in Kuwait.It comes in a beautiful tinted bottle. It looks absolutely charming and is a joy to whip out at any time and in front of anyone. Your girlfriends will be very jealous.

It has a cap that goes on really tight so there is absolutely no fear of it opening in your bag. It is absolutely travel-friendly. I have never seen a perfume with such a tight cap.

Now, the perfume is meant for women say above 28 because its a mature kind of smell.

After the initial synthetic first notes, the middle and base notes come alive. The fragrance is just awesome. Sometimes you smell musk and sometimes vanilla.

If you are familiar with the original ‘white musk’ scent, then you will recognise it anywhere. It has a strong ‘sillage’ and that’s the best part of it.

It will make a nice addition to your perfume collection and something nice to add a bridal trousseau. The entire range smells lovely and if you have the ability to splurge then go ahead and indulge.

It is a little too strong for me and I use it sparingly. It’s nice for the day and can be applied heavily for a night out. If I over do the spraying I get a migraine!

So, in the end if I had a choice I’d have put 400 more and got my very favorite designer Elie Saab’s newly launched perfume for 2,700 INR or I’d have settled for the original and simple ‘white musk’ scent.

Trivia for you – 
‘Notes’ are descriptors of scents that can be sensed upon the application of a perfume. The term is used by perfumers to describe the approximate scents to a layman.’Sillage’ is used to describe how a perfume leaves behind its scent.
