I've seen threads on the fragrance board with people asking for the perfect musk. To my nose, this is it. I've tried dozens of musks, and I always keep coming back to Dragon's Musk. When first applied, this oil seems to be all Dragon's Blood and borderline "too floral." But within about 10 minutes, it mellows out to a rich, sexy, incensey, bright musk. It is the sort of fragrance that has great sillage and surrounds you in a cloud of sweet, comforting, sexy musk. The musk in this blend is not soapy, white, Egyptian...it's more like a deep, dark musk. But when I say "dark musk," I'm not talking something overly animalic, like Lutens' Muscs Kublai Khan or Madini Musk Gazelle. No. It's not stinky. It just smells wonderful, and if you like musks, you really have to try this. There's a slight "Ren Faire" vibe to this musk, but it does not smell "headshoppy" or hippie-ish. You do have to try it on your skin before deciding if it's for you, because it smells stronger and more floral in the vial than it does when it dries down on your skin. I have received more compliments on this fragrance than almost anything else I own. I wear it regularly and have gone through many bottles.
This is really just dragon's blood, which is nice if that's what you like. I was expecting a bit more complexity. This is moderately strong and has good all-day lasting power. Imp packaging is the worst ever. US$19.50/6 imps and 2 freebies.
Yet another love from BPAL. This is very incense-y. The dragons blood has a twang and when blended as perfectly as only the lab rats can do with musk, you get sheer perfection. This is by no means for the faint of heart. Wear it and you too will feel the dragon in you begin to awaken.
This is a beautiful, no-frills dragon's blood and musk blend. It is, as mentioned below, extremely sexy, and it has a subtle sweetness to it that really makes it appealing. Very sensual, very nice.
Pleasant but disappointingly ordinary light, powdery musk scent.
I love this, it's so sexy. This is a fairly straight-forward blend - dragon's blood and a deep musk. Almost fruity, and spicy and resiny and musky all at the same time. A very sex, vampish, 'red' scent. On me, anyway!
