The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose Eau de Toilette

My not-so-recent obsession is perfumes. To be elaborate on this, no, I don't really always go about looking for only the expensive ones. But I enjoy natural scents which would be mild... sometimes blends, I even use blended essential oils for just a whiff scent which would small very natural and not overpowering having the capacity of lifting my day. That way, I don't have any special perfume which I would call mine, but I do have a type.

Price: 1600 INR approx for 50 ml

Added to my preferences or rather not so much preferences is the scent of a rose. I don't know why I
have never been much fond of rosy scents. It's not that I am against it, but it's just that I feel roses scents don't work well in hot summers unless it's a very decant Sabyasachi Mukherjee photo shoot setting with heavy Indian textiles... you get the drift, right?

However, one time, I visited The Body Shop store at the South City Mall where they had some discounts going on. I went over to check out some products and ended up buying two or three perfumes instead. Just randomly !

I picked the Atlas Mountain Rose and sniffed at it and my my! I was taken aback!

The scent is so mild and refreshingly beautiful! I remember it was hot summer, but the scent which was neither overpowering or artificial, actually made me think of some cool hills and freshened up the day!

How could I let it go?

For the last two months or so, I have been using it regularly, ever since my Hugo Boss got finished ( so loved it!) and now I am practically out of it!

I am currently stocked on lots of fragrances ( perfumes, deos, eau de colones, body sprays, blended oils, etc. Let me know if you want to see in case.

Down the line, I would love to buy it again. I am not sure whether roses from the Atlas Mountains do smell like it, but this is the first time I loved a rose-scent this much.

Do you like scents of roses? Do you have any recommendation? Please do share so that I can check it out too.

Until next time,


  1. I love rose fragrances and this one sounds amazing. I've got to check it out.

  2. Oh perfumes are a love for me too. I do love roses, and all the rose ittars. However you say you dont love roses too much, so don't know it would compare. That said, try Al Rehab Roses, it smells a lot like a soapy version of Body Shop Moroccan rose

  3. I am very poor with perfumes because whatever is gifted to me is so high on sillage and I can't take strong scents that result in headaches. I can't stand strong scents on other people too, so I totally know how you used essential oils, that's how I roll, too. But I'm deeply interested when you plan to do the post on the scents, I'm sure I will find my favorites in there too, as you describe exactly what I look for in fragrances. I will definitely try this one out at the store.
