Soap on a rope

An old soap bar. Beige-brownish in color. Cracked surface, edges all rounded from extensive use. One or two curly hairs sticking to it. What's not to love, right?

Original Musk starts off with a rather animalic type of musk that changes into a more human skin scent along the way. Soaped up skin with a little bit of funk to it. Cuddly warm like getting into a wool sweater after a cold shower.

Apart from the musks, I don't get much of the other notes listed. Maybe some florals, though rather faint. So basically this one only suits you if you are into musks of the soapy, slightly dirty kind. And I happen to be one of those people, so I'm fully enjoying this one. Not suitable for work, obviously.
