Squeaky clean
Do you want to smell like you just pulled your clothes out of the drier with ten drier sheets? Then meticulously scrubbed your entire body with baby wipes? If so, The Musc is for you! This is a nice fragrance for those who need something that is inoffensive and reassuring of cleanliness. It is the opposite of an animalic. I could see a person working in healthcare or education getting a lot of use out of it. The lavender and beeswax are rather relaxing as well. I get decent projection and a little bit of sillage for the first hour, then it creates a close scent bubble for another 3-4 hours before becoming a skin scent. Longevity is average. If you like the Clean Reserve line, you'll probably like this.

Why are you angry?
After blind-buying Divine Vanille and Rose Magnetic from Essential Parfums, both of which completely won me over, I wanted to try the third fragrance from this house.

However, I only bought The Musc once as a bottling, and perhaps that was just as well.

The Musc is not bad, by no means, but I don't really warm to it. Unfortunately, I can't detect the beeswax that I was particularly looking forward to. Instead, there is a note that is a little too sour for my taste the whole time, which is probably also the point that bothers me a little here.

Overall, The Musc is a very clean, discreet and rather unspectacular musk fragrance, definitely unisex. Sandalwood is clearly noticeable, I can only sense lavender. As I said, not bad, unobtrusive enough to wear every day. The only thing that bothers me a little is the sour undertone.

I will leave it at the bottling and not buy a bottle.

Woody Musk
On my skin, it opens more musk than tea, with a bit of a watery vibe. Then, it somewhat quickly dries down to a light vanilla with some herbal aromatic touches. The vanilla is light, and not sweet or gourmand at all, with just a touch of envelope glue.

The Musc is actually quite nice and somewhat along the lines of Kayali Velvet Santal, which also feels like a white T-shirt fragrance. I looked up the notes later and was beyond confused as I get no lavender on my skin whatsoever (or ginger or beeswax or sandalwood??) and my husband didn’t detect any on me either. He said he thought it was a soft amber.

Surprisingly persistent and clear as day on the skin 17hrs later, though with minimal protection.

Sprayed on from tester bottle at Ministry of Scent. Worn a full day and slept in by the time of writing.

The most luxurious boudoir scent
This is going to be a strange review. Because I love the scent, it's just not for me.

I love the scent because it reminds me of buzzing bees making honey, juicy fruit hanging from trees warmed by the sun, with a generous dose of fluffy white musk. I was totally surprised not to see any fruit listed, I could have sworn it contained blueberry! Blueberry-honey-white musk is what I smell.

It feels very "French", very happy, very tender. It actually reminds me a lot of "Love, Don't be Shy" by Kilian, but I must admit that I prefer The Musc, both as a scent as well as performance-wise. It just feels more organic, more natural.

Unfortunately I cannot wear it, for the same reason I cannot wear most modern Guerlains. It is too sweet for me, too much like a (high quality) macaron. But that's just me! This is a solid offering, and extremely good value for money.

Musk-dominant. Inoffensive, safe scent. Uncharitably, I might say characterless.

A bright, floral musk with a powder sugar vibe. Quite synthetic and linear.

Clean, powdery musk. A slight soapy vibe, like the lingering scent of bar soap on one's skin exiting the shower or unscented dryer sheets.
