I initially tested MKK two or three years ago maybe more. At that time I was new to Lutens fragrances and to niche fragrances in general, and I found it to be extremely animalic and rather masculine. It did not seem to be a good fit for me at all.

However, I have tested it a couple of times again recently and this time I found it to be much more unisex. I finally was able to …

OMG! I know this scent has a BAD reputation and hek, it is well deserved. The top notes hit made me keel over and I wanted to scrub the stuff off asap. You have to be patient apparently and so I took a deep breath to calm myself and waited half an hour to dare and sniff this monstrosity once more. Ok, now we're down to the middle notes and its no where near as bad. So anamalic. So used …Read more

Edit: tried this again after a long hiatus. I like the dry down, but getting there is a bit too arduous. Demoted a star.

Edit: It's cold today and I put a tiny dab of Chergui on one wrist, tiny dab of MKK on the other, and touch them together. The MKK, although powdery itself, does cut the powderiness of Chergui nicely. Even two tiny dabs -- much less than a spray -- is …

Notes: vegetal musk, costus, labdanum, ambergris, vanilla, patchouli, ambrette seeds and rose.

Opens with a heady blend of musk and ambrette seed. Dewy rose, animalic ambergris and smooth vanilla enhance the musky core accord and create a warm and sophisticated fur impression with shimmering honeyed and soapy facets. Patchouli and various resins add a dark vibrato to the scent’s …

This smells like just like a old lades bad cigarettes breath. Nothing sexy at all. I`m not that kind of woman that just like fresh light perfumes though "Jicky" is the most wonderful fragrance int the world. But MKK is awful!!!

This was my "test case" after a number of disappointing experiences with musk. After this, the Musk Monster, I can confirm that for my nose, vegetable musk does indeed smell like wet Ivory soap.
In MKK, the musk floats around in what strikes me as an old-fashioned, heavy, slightly manly "perfume smell", with just a hint of sweat (which is I assume the civet or the cumin …

This is the only fragrance that I was actually afraid to put on once I received the newly acquired bell jar from an E-Bayer. This is definitely NOT the behemoth that others say it is. I found it to be very distinct in its animalic qualities, somewhat sweet in the drydown. Smells incredibly earthy and downright sexy. Love it, but still prefer Malle Musc Ravageur to it. Fortunately, it agrees …Read more

This is very close to real wild musk pod which is unforgettably haunting and sweet, but from a passionate amateur perfumista's viewpoint it is pushed over from the musky animalic to the all too human homeless/unwashed/ dirty old MAN...I find it is intensely masculine, yes ball sweaty ; I end up in a sort of schizo-conflicted zone where I don't know what gender I am supposed to identify …Read more

Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan is notorious for its colorful (and sometimes, hilarious) reviews. If you are reading this one, you have probably already read a few scary and laughable descriptions. So, I will spare you from that.



First of all, I have to admit that when I tried this one, I was already aware of its bad reputation. But the fact that I have a weird skin …

I think this is a scent that various with individual body chemistry. After reading so many divergent reviews I ordered a sample. I am the type of person that scents disappear on after about 30 minutes, especially those citrus and fresh air ones. Currently I use Musc Ravageur by Frederic Malle.. Also the older Opium by YSL. I love musk in general and it tends to last on me.
At first it seemed …
