A lovely smoky, warm vanilla musk, but it is definitely very very sheer. Not much sillage, but I love it anyway. Just a gorgeous scent, but if you like a lot of throw, this is not your Vanilla Musk. (Try Nemat International's version: They're very alike, but Nemat is stronger.)

Vanilla Musk (I have this in the oil concentration) is an example of a quality vanilla fragrance; it’s rich, sweet and creamy like a scoop of high-quality vanilla bean ice cream. It has that wonderful desert-like sweetness without feel overly sugary or cloying. It also lacks the thin, artificial ‘screech’ of many cheap vanilla scents.

The musk is definitely a secondary element in this …

Hate to bring the reviews down on this one, but this one really didn't work out for me. I love vanillas - especially sweet vanillas, and especially if a little musk is thrown in - but I really did not care for this. First of all, there is barely any scent detectable. I have to put my nose right on my wrist and sniff hard, and I barely get any smell. What I do get is a plain, boring, watery …Read more

Ava Luxe Vanilla Musk is as close as you'll get to a Tihota dupe and also with great staying power. Pure sweet vanilla and warm musk.

I have just finished a spray decant of Vanilla Musk perfume extrait and have now had to buy a bottle of the perfume oil as I just think this is one of the most wonderful vanilla-musk scents that I have ever tried.

It's warm without being cloying, and sweet without being sickly. It's a scent that works surprisingly well in the heat of summer as the musk gives it a …

This has a lovely dry vanilla extract blast to begin with, then a hint of something milky-sweet, the crème of crème brulee; stays quite foody throughout, doesn’t broadcast much, softens out on the finish to a vanilla whisper. The musk plays second fiddle to the vanilla, but the whole thing is quite beautiful. I almost gave it a 5, but stuck with 4 because this scent is quite simple and linear. A …Read more

Rich and sweet, with a playdoh note. (This is actually a plus for me, but I know it's not for everyone.) Reminds me a lot of Lavanila Pure Vanilla. I was a little puzzled by Serena's use of the Andy Warhol picture of Marilyn Monroe to illustrate this scent, then realized it's perfect--Marilyn actually wore Chanel No. 5, but Vanilla Musk fits her image perfectly! Took off a point …Read more

Unhappily, I shattered my bottle on the bathroom floor JUST as Serena went on extended break!

My skin amps both musk and vanilla. So,I thought it might be a nightmare. NOT! It's delicious, and JUST right! Lots of compliments. Some neck sniffs.YUM!

Yum, yum, yum...the best vanilla musk I have ever tried. Clean but sweet. It is a great everyday scent...comforting and sexy.

Very sweet and pretty. Similar to Love's True Bluish Light but muskier and not buttery, giving this one the edge over LTBL. Starts off a tad too sweet but then the musk comes up and balances it out. Might be good for layering with other scents too. Lasting power on me is ok, stays warm and close to the skin but I get little pleasant whiffs now and then.
