The Soapiest Musk Of All
If you are a fan of the classic Musk Eau de Toilette, you might like this, but at the same time, it might not be to your liking. Why do I say this? Because Musk Extreme is a soapy bomb, full of white musk, balms, and light, clean aldehydes, so much so that it reminds us of freshly hung laundry in the sun, talcum powder after a relaxing hot bath, the bar of facial soap that wakes us up in the morning united to fresh water. The scent is refined, very sensual, warm and persistent but lacks that blackberry nuance that is the hallmark of the original. Musk Extrême has an aldehyde structure enriched by citrus, powdery, and musky accents. To emphasize and enhance the facets of the musk, the perfumer has added a generous amount of modern white musk molecules to the original formula.

Musk Extreme immediately releases a burst of soapy aldehydes mixed with something citrusy, bright, alcoholic, and light. The bergamot gives substance to the aldehydes without making the opening too harsh but reinforcing that sense of hairspray and talcum powder. You can immediately feel its bright and warm character, anything but dark.

In the heart, the aldehydes give way to a little white and a little pink flowers. The presence of the carnation is discreet. It is not intrusive, just as the soapy rose is shy, adding dustiness without being gelatinous, metallic, or opulent. Both flowers make the fragrance close to a luxury soap bar. Instead, jasmine reigns supreme among the flowers, so androgynous, with its sometimes masculine and sometimes feminine touches.

Although it may have overdosed, synthetic musk always remains clean, a little sour, without presenting animalic, mouldy, or dirty facets of animal or vegetal musk, such as tree moss. A clean laundry, musk. Although vanilla and coumarin are present, the drydown appears smooth. Indeed, both exploit their powdery side to strengthen the root of the iris. I also miss the salty aspect of amber, perhaps drowned in the depths of the powdery and musky accords.

Once it enters the central phase, Musk Extreme does not change and remains firm in a powdery, slightly balsamic, and soapy fragrance. This has a more floral character than the OG Musk. Although delicate, the perfume adapts well to the colder months and, therefore, to the autumn and winter seasons, including early spring. It is suitable for both the office and free time during the day and evening, but I don't find it robust to face the night, except for going to sleep between the sheets.

I'm basing my thoughts on a bottle I've owned since February 2021 (BC 3214320A).
