Lately, I've been on a quest to find the perfect Egyptian Musk. I had such high hopes for this one, based on a lot of the reviews, but it sadly fell far short of my expectations. In the bottle, this has a minimal but pleasant scent, as a lot of Egyptian Musks tend to possess. Upon application to my wrist, however, a most unpleasant "plastic note" bloomed, and became more intense …Read more

Despite reading chandler burrs A Perfect Scent (SJP and the creation of Lovely); and using new dead stock NR musc oil for her, I never jumped on the Egyptian oil bandwagon. For those who want to know more about Egyptian oil, I suggest reading the series on Perfumeshrine.com. But I was at whole foods and thought I should pick some up. To those who cannot find Egyptian oil rollerballs, I find the …Read more

Per the 4/27/15 US Weekly magazine "What's in my bag?" article (on pg. 10) -- it showed the spilled purse contents of author Carole Radziwill, 51, from "Real Housewives of NY".

There among her photographed contents was a rollerball of Kuumba Made Egyptian Musk -- however, per article (plus another online article), she doesn't use this brand. She used to …

If I hadn't experienced Auric Blends' take on Egyptian musk before Kuumba Made's I would probably love this. I got worried at first because I DID get a fecal note as others have mentioned but luckily it went away quickly and left a nice if plain musk scent. A little more quiet and powdery than Egyptian Goddess, this is the skin scent of all skin scents, virtually indetectable as a …Read more

I too sampled this at Whole Foods and thought it was wonderful - the very scent that I've been searching for. I bought it (at $9.99 for a miniscule bottle), took it home, applied it to my wrists and...nothing. No scent apart from a vague, weak woodsy smell (like an old wooden attic). I didn't even get a scent from sniffing the bottle directly. However, I tried rubbing a few drops …Read more

I tried this at Whole Foods and loved the way the tester smelled on me. (I love the scent of Egyptian Musk.) Several days later I returned and bought a vial, but after wearing if for the last few days, I'm really disappointed. The rollerball itself smells like Egyptian Musk, but after I apply it on my skin, all I smell is sandalwood. The scent also fades very quickly. I'm not sure why …Read more

I tested this at Whole Foods and was mind-blowingly unoverwhelmed by it. It definitely not obtrusive and it's a soothing/comfort scent. Right out of the vial, it has very low silage (and that's coming from a person who's nervous to wear a soft floral in public!) and which barely develops after application. I don't find it terribly unique, but I guess it's a good basic …Read more

Wow, I was so surprised to read the review by the user that said she got a "manure" scent...that is exactly how it smells to me, too...and I LOVE Egyptian Musk! I have tried Auric Blends Egyptian Goddess (which smells like eraser and just "off"), Body Time's version (nice!) and the one from Fragrant Body Oilz on ebay (the best I have found...PLUS it comes in a spray!). …Read more

This smells delicious! I ordered the 1/8 oz. size from Kuumba Made after hearing great reviews here on MUA. This is supposed to be a close match to Narciso Rodriguez's Musc oil. It is close, but I like the NR better. However, it's a good alternative.
