Wow, surprising. Smells like hippy patchouli out of the vial, but it’s actually a lovely wood powder rose, very similar after dry down to Calligraphy Rose. Smells 1970s, in a lovely rose perfume, rose incense way. Quite a pleasant surprise, as I normally truly dislike patchouli scents and hippy patchouli in particular.

I say if you’re going to try this musk today do not buy the spray edt or edp as they do not smell as good as the oil. I’ve noticed in many reviews that the perfume spray doesn’t smell the same as it used to. I agree with that assessment and recommend the oil as that was their original product the perfume sprays came later. The oil on the other hand imo is less fake smelling or the musk components are there. No, this will never be as good as a musk made back in the day with nitro musks, but the oil at least isn’t harsh. This has a light Jovan musk scent and it’s a touch soapy but not too much. You won’t smell too clean as the oil turns into a sweet musky skin scent when it dries down. So if you’re a musk lover go for the oil because that’s your best bet if you want to enjoy the musk in this scent.

I found this perfume in a local store to a reduced price and I immediately fell in love with the fragrance! It smells like candy and I think it is very long-lasting, at least on my skin. 15 ml lasted for two months, and I could still smell it 12 hours after I applied it. I have very sensitive skin, and I usually get red and a tad itchy the first moment after applying perfume, but this one didnt affect me. So anyone who like vanilla should definetly try this one!

Ok this is a scent i'm not sure how to describe but will try to give you some idea.I was at Westfields Shepherds Bush (London) yesterday and saw this at Beauty Base which sells high end fragrances including a limited range of Serge Leutens.Alyssa Ashley Ambre Gris smells very high end. I only tried on paper and skin but briefly. It seemed to last well and had an animallic musk scent but not overly so.The scent though not heavy had a heady note which i wasnt keen on (lippy off for that). Definately worth trying esp for those who like the animalic musk scents.

As far as white musks go the scent isn't bad but the staying power is nil, like half an hour, seriously bad. If you're looking for a good inexpensive white musk try the body shop's white musk oil.
