Baby Magic Baby LotionClone scent for Baby Magic Baby Lotion.
If you're into that, you'll be happy. If you're thinking anything "Smoky" or "Poppy" you're out of luck.

very harsh and doesn't lastThis is the first review I've written but I felt it necessary since the rest on here are so great. My personal experience with this EDT was unpleasant at best. To put it bluntly, it stinks. Other reviewers noted it comes out of the bottle smelling fairly harsh, and on me it didn't go away. It's a very chemical (not in a fun synthetic way, think cleaning chemical) smell. If you want something floral, go for white musk. The body butter from this collection is fairly inoffensive.

Wow, this is wonderfulThis is a definite winner for The Body Shop. I see that it is a Limited Edition. I hope it becomes a regularly available product. I would love to see a larger size for the eau de parfum. I am wearing this to work, and it's just fine for work, even though it is a spicy oriental. It is complex, not fruity (a definite plus, as I am sick of every new thing that comes out smelling like fruit salad). Please make a larger size of the fragrance and the body butter. Great Stuff!!

Smoky indeedWhen you first spray this it smells like an ashtray, which is obviously horrible, but on the drydown it's very, very pleasant and since I picked it up I've reached for it more often than my expensive perfumes. Layers well with a nice simple vanilla if you have that lying around, makes it lean a little more feminine. I've seen some comparisons to some classic heavy-hitter names in the perfume world but I find it hard to agree with those comparisons except in the broadest terms.
On the drydown it's powdery, a little bitter, not very floral, and smoky/earthy. The floral that is there isn't overwhelmingly feminine, nor is it cloying. I could honestly see this fragrance being unisex, although it leans more female to me. It smells a little like an attic, in a good way. It's "drier" and sharper than the corresponding body butter fragrance but definitely similar.
Overall, a nice balance between something that's easy to wear and non-intimidating and something that's different and non-linear. A little more grown up than the rest of the EdT TBS offers. Wish it lasted longer. Minimal sillage, which is a plus to me but might be a negative for others. Does have a great next-to-the-skin linger, and scents your coat collars very nicely. Also, the bottle is of course beautiful.
