Musc Nomade is another interpretation of „Withe Musk“ which is a collective term for the kinds of musk, that take soft, creamy and clean (but not necessaryly and rather undesirably soapy) effect on the bright side of musk.
For starters it opens however with a quite sharp and brusque musk of the animalistic kind, consanguineous to my favorite musk „Kiehl´s Original Musk Blend“. As irritating as this clear, but very clearly anti-creamy musk is in the beginning, it lasts for only short time and soon takes big steps on the way to the creamy and soft musk-territory.
The name „Musc Nomade“ is well chosen: Ideas of a wide and open country with dry shrubs, sand and stone under a burning sun and in the same time cold wind are answered by a certain naturalness, a kind of brittleness and a somehow straw-like note. Not hay (too grassy), but actually straw; I cannot name the note or accord responsible.
Even the nature of human nomadism is sort of sniffable in MN: Unsettled and moving, but not in the slightest way jittery or fussed is this musk-note. It does not rest too long, but develops and changes constantly, without harsh character alternation or uneasy bustle.
There is lots of creamyness, the typical musk-clearness, a pale and dusty soft-rosa and a super-tiny whiff of something fruity. With the base even more creamyness and a spot of sweetness of tonka bean and a dry and warm woodyness lay under the calming and finally down-settling musk.
The sillage is not very strong, in the same time the longevity is good. You should spray LOTS of it, but then you will rejoice in a high-grade musk fragrance.
Decidedly unisex, suitable through the whole year and all sorts of weather, this fluffy soft musk opens a clear and tidy, far wide, cloudless sky where a bracing wind is coming up.
