Bad to the Bone
Scentrack: Grace Jones- Libertango A deadly beauty. In a dirty French way camouflaged Roucel's lavender. A lavender complementary surrounded by gluckwine clove, cinnamon and skanky musk. This musk is dirty, filled with animalic attraction. Vanilla is transparent, yet strong and almost edible. A... Read more

The old formula was abit daring the first 20 minutes...the new one is amazing BUT..
BUT... the performance both the old and the new suck on my skin. But I really really really am in love with the scent. Its a perfect ten I love this as much as I could love a woman , I found the love of my life sucks in performance this is the biggest disappointment of my fragrance journey... Read more
Need some more years to understand the 'Art' hidden in it......
How curious I was to test this and how disappointed I am after sampling it , I can't say I hate it but One thing I can surely say that I can't stand it until it settles down to a fairly good drydown , but the opening is really very difficult to survive with especially in the hot and humid climate ,...

Musc Ravageur
L de Lolita defined my fear of the gourmand genre. Thick scents of chocolate dessert are coupled with musks and ambers, both of which are known for their fixative properties. Amber 'fixes' the gourmand quality of L de Lolita the way concrete shoes 'set' in a mafia fable before you're thrown in the... Read more

Awesomeness in the bottle
I love this perfume a lot. Musc Ravaguer has never been a let down for me.Very elegant for evening wear as well as party wear. The slight animalic note is just beyond any words to express that feeling. Not a perfect date scent but yes you need to wait atleast 45 min before meeting you better... Read more

Shalimar 2000
I certainly like this one... very much. I've heard of it as a love/hate type of fragrance but I think that this one is pretty tame and sensual to me. Apparently this was inspired by Shalimar, and I completely see that. What Musc Ravageur reminds me of, is the old style of perfume classics like... Read more

Wearing Musc Ravageur to bed
A blast of musc and then just as suddenly a complex harmonic dance of spices that almost becomes an Oriental. Then, unexpectedly the Lavender appears like a cool breeze and harmonizes with the woods to create and intimate skin scent. Wow!

Naughty and Nice
I have been wearing MUSC RAVAGEUR for 3 consecutive days since I bought it, which does not happen very often with the way my moods change. Musc Ravageur seems to be a complicated scent with beautiful facets that can certainly hold my interest. Loaded with alluring spices, the clove, vanilla and... Read more

One Of The Two Or Three Best Musks On The Market...
Musc Ravageur is a very nice scent indeed. For the most part the scent pyramid posted on this review page is accurate based on my experience with it on skin. It opens with a blast of natural smelling lavender with just a hint of bergamot to balance it out. The heart notes emerge rather early,... Read more

Feel free to ravage your lover wearing this...
You tend to hear a lot about this fragrance on the niche forums. Many people say it's sexy, raunchy, hot, sensual... you get the gist. So of course, like any hot-blooded woman would do, I made it my mission to scout out Musc Ravageur. Before I begin, my favourite musk prior to smelling this... Read more

Sensual foreplay. Worth it's weight in gold.
Musc Ravageur by Frédéric Malle.. I got my hands on a 10ml decant recently so I decided I would give this a few good wears before any review. The opening took me by surprise, for the wrong reasons I will add. I would best describe the opening as a bottle of medicine alongside some baby... Read more

Blind buys NOT recommended
Wow. Musc Rave is a purring kitty ... animalistic, somewhat dirty musk. I'm all-in for a good perfume skank-fest once & awhile, but even Musc Rave is a bit too much for me. I know there are other notes in this, but all I get is musk, a sweetish musk ... kitty musk, if you know what I... Read more

Musk Deer Appear To Have Been Emasculated In The Production of This Perfume
I suppose that I was never a prime candidate for Frédéric Malle MUSC RAVAGEUR in the first place, not being a huge fan of musk, but I have to say that I found this an unpleasant wear. The opening packs a punch of harsh lavender, which may be harsh in part due to the clove? In any case, it was to... Read more

I loved this from the first inhale. Powdery, a little spicy, comforting like your own skin but somehow so so much better.+3

The first niche perfume i’ve ever smelled. Huge amount of cloves and cinnamon in the opening and a sweet vanilla drydown. I still like it.+2
