Now i will buy it HAVE ANY OF YOU WHO BOUGHT THE ORGINAL ASKED YOURSELF WHERE DOES THE WILD MUSK COME FROM??? It was from a wild cat Civet cats, who are rarely bred in captivity, are captured in the wild and held in tiny cages barely larger than their bodies, where they are kept without release in hot, smoke-filled sheds for up to 15 years.[1] Every 10 days or so the musk is brutally extracted from the glands of the conscious civets. Many of the civets cease to eat after the first extraction is performed. Do do todays standards thank god..the scent is duplucate in a lab. That is why the scent is slightly different. Stop whinning!!!!

If you like amber but find most amber fragrances too oriental or heavy, this may be a good choice for you. It's heavy on the citrus and white florals with a soft amber base. Very sweet, very floral and nowhere near heavy or earthy enough for me. This was a blind buy for me and I like it enough to use up the bottle but probably will not purchase. The price was surprisingly cheap, longevity is all day and sillage is moderate. It's a good choice for warmer weather when most amber fragrances will be too strong.

I got this for a Christmas gift quite a few years ago and am just now getting it finished. Anyway, this is/was slightly bold yet not overbearing, a little sexy, and slightly floral all combined imo. Fragrantica lists the main accords as floral, powdery, warm spicy, woody, and musky, and I agree with that. Although the powdery accord for me would be at the bottom of the list and I would say imho: warm spicy floral musky woody powdery (ever so slight!!) Really surprised that fragrantica has Pear listed as the top note, as I do not detect much pear, if at all...? I do agree with the white pepper note listed, but not the green note listed. *sigh* Perhaps my sniffer is off..? I definitely detect the spicy notes and the rose notes. I definitely agree with the base notes listed as sandalwood, musk and patchouli, so if you are not a fan of those base notes, you probably would not care for this perfume. To me this is great for a date night, fall or winter scent, although could be worn in the summer, too. I would not wear this to work or to school or around anyone with allergies or asthma or a sensitive nose, as there are some strong notes/accords in this. One spray is sufficient. And while this is somewhat powerful at first spray, it does not last very long. Within about 3 or 4 hours, I can barely detect the scent on me. So that was a bit of a bummer. But for what I would use it for, date nights or weddings and the like, it was okay to only have it last a few hours...But if I wanted this to last all day, I likely would definitely have took this down to 3 stars/3 lippies...I did always get lots of compliments when wearing this, so there is that!! :) I enjoyed having this and using it up, but would not re-purchase or ask for it again. I have just moved on from this one. It was nice, but nothing really special to hold my interest to make me want to get it again.
