Queen of the galaxolides...
First of all, let's get something straight. I'm a total sucker for white musk. It's my staple "weak at the knees" perfume note. Now, I know that white musk is considered to be a tender and dreamy note, something that is usually associated with babies and innocence and cleanliness and stuff, but this one is the bully of the white musk class! It singlehandedly puts all other classmates to shame, stomping on them relentlessly and stealing their pocket money. And also proving that in some cases niche perfumes are nothing more than a farce and/or way overrated. No? Well, let's say that you can buy some 15 bottles of it for the price of one Montale White Musk. Now, according to statistics this would mean that Montale White Musk is 15 times better than Muschio Bianco. Well dear statistics, I'm sorry to rain on your parade, but it's not. It's not even better on an one-on-one scale. And how could it be? Muschio Bianco is a linear, yet gorgeous and "I'm done with subtlety!" blast of the best white musk money (just a little of it) can buy. As for its longevity, the only way to get rid of the damn thing any time sooner than it decides to get rid of you, is to have it surgically removed. How does almost 24 hours of pure white musk mayhem sound for a single spray? To me it sounds like potential of being in white musk heaven for a year, for as much as a cup of coffee costs. Better deal anyone?
