Discreet and beautiful everyday scent
We received this fragrance a few years ago in an Advent calendar from TheBodyShop in a 10-ml bottle. We didn't like it at all, so we put it into a cosmetic bag as a travel flacon - where it was ignored while travelling. When I started to develop a real passion for perfume last year, I collected everything that looked like perfume at home and tested it extensively. Among them was this little bottle - and I still didn't like it. I decided to put it into the spring collection for layering, where I saw it this morning and put it on What a strange reunion - I like him now. I don't know why, it's beyond me. Am I so addicted to perfume that I simply like everything now? No, I can't say that I have. Why do I not feel this intense musk note as old-fashioned and from the day before yesterday as I did last year?
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I now use scents much more consciously for certain emotional states and then perhaps I hit the mark now and then. This morning, on a day when I have something difficult in front of me and feel that time is quite difficult anyway, this fragrance fits perfectly. It seems mature, experienced and mature and that is nice. I perceive mainly musk in all phases; I can't really smell the floral notes, but they are responsible for this very special musk note. The scent is not sweaty and anal, but mild and subtle. It appears elegant and there seem to be also aldehydes involved, but they are not mentioned here. The fragrance experience is in summary less flowery, more musky powdery, but already individually shaped and very, very soft.
A beautiful everyday fragrance that actually always goes when the fragrance is supposed to be in the background, but gently supporting. Or when - as in these times - you basically carry it more or less on your own and therefore don't necessarily want to reach for the most precious thing. Precious fragrances are something you just want to save up. Because this much is certain: At some point, times will get better again. In the end everything will be fine. And if it is not good yet... then it is not the end.

White Musk Perfume Oil
This review is based on Perfume Oil concentration. When I tried the three concentration in store, the EDT and EDP turned out both to be harsh. But the PO concentration is another story.

Overall the perfume oil of White Musk doesn't change much. Upon application, it's a rich and fluffy musky scent decorated by various floral notes. The combination actually makes me think of some rice-themed fragrances. The floral notes are smooth and well blended. I could only identify the slightly smoky lily.

I wouldn't define White Musk as clean, as it has some earthy and dank characteristics while evolving, but more like a wet forest floor and far from being animalic. Towards the end, it becomes a little sweeter, as if amber and vanilla finally reveal themselves, but still remains a comforting skin scent.

The sillage of perfume oil is very close to skin, but at the same time stays solidly for almost 12 hours. It's a scent that I'd really associate with a cashmere puller due to its fluffy and comforting feeling and it will fit numerous occasions almost all year round except for hot summer days IMO. I highly recommend the perfume oil concentration for its high quality and affordable price.

Musk (edt)
MUSK. Musk and more musk. Clean and soft with a calm to it. It smells allll musk to me but I enjoy this in cooler months fall and winter. It is a safe non offensive scent but do not over spray and I have the EDT version...

I've Looked at Clouds from Both Sides Now...
This is an airy comfortable yet dynamic clean white musk with a touch of aldehydes, green lush fresh basil leaves, Iris and Galbanum. It is luring yet comforting andmutre yet carefree. I have been drawn to this scent for well over 20 decades and I am always amazed at how it slides over my skin, warms me and makes me look up at the clouds and breath deeply. I can't detect jasmine and lily...although, they are listed in the notes and I love them, but this scent bleds so beautifully; the eau de parfum is just as good as the pure oil concentrate that I used to wear. This is the scent of a person- neither a man or a woman in particular, but a human being, who smells good and radiants a sense of calm, peace, joy, life, and Shambhala. I wear this when ever I am unsure, anxious or nostalgic and it brings me to my psychological home, confident, fresh but not too clean or soapy. This scent is appropriate for the office and a totslly unoffensive skin scent, not sweet...dry airy feather- this is both fresh and decently anamalic, herbal it melts into my skin and I fade into it's aura gladly!

gorgeous musk
Smooth, clean and elegant perfume in an inelegant bottle.
The pricetag belies the quality of the liquid inside.
Compliments, so many, many compliments.
"Excuse me Miss, may I ask what perfume you're wearing?"
The definition of unisex.
The perfect musk.
Gorgeous.

Clean and sweetish-powdery, with a discreet soft touch of fresh washed skin. After the reformulation, as if the scent were watered down.+1
