Oscillates between Egyptian Musk (good) and Caress Soap (bad). Fortunately, I can get the Egyptian Musk for a fraction of the price of Perfect Veil.

Does Creative Scentualisation think we are stupid ? This is my question after sampling Perfect Vanilla and Perfect Veil twice over - from the bottle and from my samples. They are light, smell very similar after a short time and they do not last long. Fleeting actually. Neither are Perfect Anything IMHO. As a previous reviewer noticed- there is a similarity to Ava Luxe's Nude Musk and Perfect Veil is like Ava Luxe's Pearl Musk ONLY Serena's Pearl Musk is better ,longer lasting and better value for money.

At first, I was very drawn to the vanilla, musk and sandlewood notes in this fragrance. On principle, I love the idea of a fresh, YSBB scent, but had yet to find one that worked for me. After optimistically trying a sample of Perfect Veil, I thought this might be the one I was looking for. However, each time I have worn it, this seemingly gentle scent has morphed into something cloyingly powdery and sweet on me. The idea, for me, behind a skin scent, is to present a barely there, almost organic smell of goodness. Despite applying the roll-on oil sparingly (a dab on each wrist and one on my neck), I don't think I accomplished this. My DH actually asked me to wash it off, which was a first. To paraphrase, the fragrance smelled artificially overpowering and unpleasantly sweet to him (not like my usual choices, he noted). DH also became concerned that some of the scent might rub off on him, lol. Maybe this fragrance simply doesn't mesh with my skin chemistry. I can easily imagine Perfect Veil smelling wonderful on the right person--just as I hoped it would on me. When I sniff the roll-on, I still find the scent that comes wafting back attractive: soft, cuddly, comforting, tender. I guess this snuggly little number just isn't right for me.

A nice, clean musk, light and pretty, but it is VERY like Ava Luxe's Nude Musk even in notes: Perfect Veil: Lemon, bergamot, vanilla, musk. Nude Musk: Sandalwood, bergamot, vanilla, musk. I prefer the Nude Musk, as the slight woody edge has more character than Perfect Veil, and the Nude Musk lasts a whole lot longer on me. Perfect Veil faded off pretty quickly on me to a faint vanillaish musk that I had to press my nose to wrist to detect. I do think it's overhyped and way overpriced. Too bad: At drugstore prices, I would probably buy this one.

When I had my first swap I fell in love with a sample of this. It just stood out from the many that I received. Time passed and I tried on the sample occasionally then realised that I had to have little more. I received another sample decant and when I spilt this by mistake I realised how much I loved this scent!!
Fortunately I have two bottles and this is my favourite. It is a soft delicate scent with a hint of vanilla, sandalwood and musks. Many say that this is similar to cheaper fragrances in the market but I strongly disagree. It's versatility means that it can be worn all year round and anytime. I surprisingly prefer EDP to the oil version as the former is softer and lighter to wear.
Other alternatives include Ava Luxe's Pearl Musk, Nude Musk and Opal by SSS.

As far as pleasant little soapy musk fragrances go, Perfect Veil fits the bill. I am not a huge fan of this genre, preferring exciting over comforting smells, but given what they set out to do, Creative Scentualization achieved their goal. The notes in Perfect Veil are enjoyable, the sillage is good and there is no cheapness about it. A similar perfume in terms of smell and quality is Sonoma Scent Studio's Opal. Vive la musk!
Here are the notes per Luckyscent: lemon, bergamot, musk, vanilla and sandalwood.

This is admittedly powdery at first spritz, but once it dries down, it becomes so comfy--all vanilla and musk. Very cuddly. Very casual. And very addictive. The lasting power is great, too. EDIT: I still reach for this on occasion, but the powderiness gets to me. It's a valuable layering scent, though.

I hate to be the voice of discension but Perfect Veil is perfectly ubiquitous and seriously over-priced/hyped. I have the EdP and all I smell is a strong, syrupy, Egyptian Musk. I have an Egyptian Musk oil I purchase from an occult shop for mere pennies that smells just like this only it binds to my skin better.

While on the hunt for my next signature scent, I ordered a sample of this from beautyhabit.com. It's nice, pretty, subtle. Staying power is good but it's sweeter than I'd like - on me it smells like a softer version of Aquolina Pink Sugar. Just not the type of scent I'm looking for, especially at the price.

Love this clean skin/musk scent...one of my favorites, and even though it doesn't last very long on my skin, I still purchased a full bottle anyway!!

This is my new HG fragrance that I've been wearing since winter and now it's summer so that says something in and of itself. It's so gentle yet it's long lasting and it's definitely not cloying at all. I get nothing but compliments on how great I smell (note, not how great my perfume smells) and that right there is reason enough for me to spend about $80 for me to get this from Luckyscent.com. I'm sure it's not for everyone but really, this perfume is for more people than your average perfume. I would even let my niece wear this and she's only in middle school, because it's not an in your face perfume that smells too "mature" or too heavy and heady, it's just simple, alluring, and delicious. I suppose I could buy the cheap drug store version and add vanilla, but I'm willing to pay extra to have that step done for me (believe me, I'm a perfume-aholic so I spend enough money on tons of perfumes, that this one perfume is a bargain for me). So yeah, it is definitely expensive but I wouldn't swap it for anything in the world, and until I find something better, this is it for me. Oh, and a perk is that my mom actually likes it so I've been able to split bottles with her, and I never thought I'd get her to stop wearing her signature Guerlain Shalimar that she's worn since before I was born. Trust me, try a sample and I bet you'll like it. It's so neutral that you can wear it to work or around kids. The price will deter some, but as I said, I'm willing to spend the money on it because I adore (totally ♥ it and never tire of it, but I also buy perfume like it's going out of style.) Good for those of you who get headaches from strong perfumes (like me) and just want to smell good without necessarily smelling like a perfume factory.

This is a gentle and pretty musk, creamy and milky, with a strong hint of vanilla and a white musk drydown, Perfect Veil is a casual, clean-smelling-skin scent that avoids going too sweet. It's perfect for weekends in a sweater and jeans, but light enough to get away with during warmer months, too. It is relatively inoffensive, and the sillage won't knock anyone over. I do think it is quite overpriced, and I find that Ava Luxe Nude Musk is *very* similar, and much less expensive; for that reason, I will purchase Nude Musk over Perfect Veil.

I hate to admit that by purchasing Perfect Veil, I'm pretty much paying someone else to add a little vanilla to my beloved Skin Musk oil. It smells too good to protest, I guess. This is skin scent I was hoping for from Narciso Rodriguez, Doll Face and countless others.

I received my sample haul very quickly from Lucky Scents and started with Perfect Veil described in the usual rhapsodic terms on the site. Well...it is very soapy; in fact, I'd say it's a dead ringer for Prell Shampoo, and it's long lasting, so i had to smell it all day.

It took a second try of sampling this fragrance (eau de parfum) for me to appreciate the beauty of its simplicity. There is nothing complicated, "perfumey", or "fussy" about this fragrance. The scent is soft, delicate and warm-very much a SKIN scent. The citrus top notes are not too sharp or prominent; but blend perfectly well with the base notes of musk, sandalwood, and vanilla. Together they make this scent both pretty yet subtly sexy at the same time. This is the ideal scent to wear everyday when you don't want to smell like you are wearing perfume, and perfect to wear on the weekends when you are more casual when shopping or doing errands or just lounging around at home with your man. I'm dying to see how it works as a base for some of my other "less than perfect" fragrances. Perfect Veil is definately full bottle worthy and destined to be a staple in my fragrance collection.

This is a lovely fragrance. It is a sort of "white" musk. (meaning sort of light, and simple and "white" or blue? not black or deep etc.)...... very pretty, simple musk. Very much as descritpion "perfect "veil" " It is a sort of soft "veil" of musk. If you like ligh, white type musks you would like? and should try this one. :)

In the same way I fell in love with Lea for her simplicity, Perfect Veil captures me every time I wear it. It's a skin scent, for me in the same category of fragrances as Sage Machado's Pearl. They're the ones I reach for when I'm not in the mood to be anything in particular, just feminine and quiet. There's a soft lemon opening to this, and although not a dominating note, is so important because it keeps it from becoming generic and over-the-top sweet. A must have.

In one way or other I've been sampling this scent for over 2 years, and have changed my mind too many times. My initial impression was of a generic, perfumey high-end hairspray, not enough statement or personality to warrant a purchase. Over time however, it grew on me. As a graphic designer I have learned that one of the most difficult things to achieve is a composition of well crafted, perfect simplicity; something that doesn't look "designed". To me Perfect Veil is the scent equivalent of this. I can't pull out specific notes the way others are able to do, but I love how the overall composition is so much greater than the sum of its parts. So nice for every day when I'm in the mood to smell nicely myself, rather than make any kind of overt statement.

Very nice indeed. This is what Jil Sander Sensations wanted to be--the heightened scent of warm skin. However, I must admit I'm not experienced with Egyptian musks, so I have no idea how unique or otherwise this might be.

I loved this from the very first sniff. This scent is absolutely beautiful. I have never smelled anything quite like this before. I'm extremely sensitive to most fragrances and this is one of them that I can wear all day without a headache. I did purchase a sample of this before buying, which I would recommend to others. I'm off to purchase the lotion and shower gel now. Very beautiful scent, like an angel!
