Heavy on the Tarragon, Soft on the Skin
This is a easy to wear clean white musk with less body and depth than Jovan White Musk or The Body Shop White Musk but with a unique Tarragon and Ambrette Top that is worth sampling. I adore white musk, in spite of the fact that they are about as popular as Merlot and Chardonnay right now (i.e., not popular at all). I recently discovered my HG White musk to be OSMO's "Musc Bleu" and I am very much in love with my new full bottle of that scent. Comparatively, Musc Blanc by Les Senteurs Gourmandes is a better value for a simple, every day White musk skin scent that is powdery, slightly sweet, delicate and very clean. It never goes sour and is incapable of even the hint of animalic sensuality. This is a scent that is appropriate for any occasion, office, gym, pool party, airport- you name it. The sillage is restrained and it last only about 3-4 hours. Any age group can wear this and although slightly feminine, could make an economically layering base for a Man, as well. Some may find the tarragon a little high pitched and headache inducing at times. Is it swoon worthy, not really. But I don't regret blind buying this one, because it is never wrong.
