An apology
With this I would like to make amends, because I have now tested Bal Musqué once again, the same bottling that caused my giant tearing.

I don't know what went up my nose, but now, 2 years later, I can't understand at all what I smelled at that time.

Well, this powder soap impression still exists in the first hour, but only if I hold my nose exactly to my skin.
But the cloud that blows up to me is wonderfully soft and sweet.
Afterwards it smells of a still warm cherry almond particle fresh from the baker and thus it remains also a considerable time.
After about 6 hours the cherry has disappeared, but the smell of baked goods is still there, very delicate, warm and soft.

I want to apologize for doing this really beautiful perfume so wrong.
I deleted the old comment, but leave it in the new one below, so that you know what I apologize for.
The statement says it already - in the first half hour it is by far the worst perfume I have ever smelled.

Rancid gall soap is the first thing that reaches my nose - thick and swirling.
Sticky as paste crawling over my arm.

Obviously, a hospital is also thoroughly cleaned here, because the smell of disinfectant slowly joins the bile soap, as does the slight whiff of sweat (no, no fresh sweat...) and bed linen that has to be changed.

A sweaty patient in a disinfected, "freshly" scrubbed hospital chews tonsils while someone re-covers the bed.

The stay is over, the no longer-patient climbs, still evaporating, into the next train and first of all goes to the toilet.
When washing his hands he notices that powder soap from the soap dispenser with the turning thing underneath actually still comes from anno dunnemals.

All the way home he has the powdery smell of soap in his nose and he picks the almond remains from his teeth.

I can't even put it into words how horrible I find this perfume - terrible to become evil.

Nachtag, 13.06.19: As I now know, the sample must have been tilted at that time, so please make your own picture of this fragrance and don't take my evaluation so hard.

Woody Gourmand Oriental à la Nez à Nez
The opening of BAL MUSQUE, from the house of Nez à Nez, is surprisingly nice, with a declarative licorice note buttressed by an appealing complex of woods and a touch of leather. I like it a lot.

Within minutes, the house base becomes stronger and stronger to the point where, by the drydown, I am unable to distinguish this particular perfume from the drydowns of some of the other perfumes of this house. As I am not a fan of this base, my initial optimism about BAL MUSQUE proved to be false. I was hoping that this creation might be the exception to the rule, the one perfume from this house to deserve my further investigation, but alas, the base won out again.

Obviously, compatibility with and taste for a house base differs a lot from person to person. Those who like some of the other Nez à Nez creations may well appreciate this one as well. If the opening lasted more than a couple of minutes, I would have been ready to sign on for a full bottle, but for whatever reason, I simply do not like the somewhat gunky vanilla base.
