I could live with this one!
I am not a fan of Musk. In general, I find the note fusty and staid ... so it was with trepidation that I sampled this one, included in a mystery envelope of samples. While I'm not going to rush out and buy it, if Fraîcheur Muskissime made it's way into my collection via other routes I would more than likely wear it from time to time.

A refreshing burst of Aldehydic citrus notes up top leads the nose to a fruity, sparkling, aqua like Jasmine ... quite delicious! I had a conversation recently with a fragrance pal, discussing my abhorrence of fruit in fragrances of late. Strange then that I should find Fraîcheur Muskissime in any way appealing, considering the fact that it contains berries in the first two stages of its development. The conclusion we came up with is that it depends on the way fruits are used and whence they come.
I will put my nose on just about anything, and I think it's the rash of fruity floral 'celebu-scents' in the last few years that has created the fruit aversion in me (a la Britney/Justin/Xtina et al) ... the most recent being the absolutely ghastly Fame by Lady Gaga.
The fruit in this particular Maître Parfumeur et Gantier creation is handled subtly, allowing the tart aspects of the berries to hold sway and not drift in a sugary direction. A base of well intentioned Sandalwood creates a nice platform for the non-indolic Jasmine to lay upon, with the Musk here carrying a faint 'laundry' vibe, but not at all unpleasing. It's a 'clean' Musk, which if used in a fragrance at all is the kind I prefer.

My only negative comment on Fraîcheur Muskissime would be that its longevity and sillage are not up to scratch for a premium brand, at least not on my skin. That said, this is a 'fraîcheur' fragrance and in this regard is definitely doing its job in the 30 centigrade heat I am testing it in today.
