Bryan Ross, you did it again - a review of yours has inspired me to revisit yet another fragrance I used to despise, this time Black Musk For Men. Wow, did I call this one wrong!
I've been getting into musk scents recently, and I decided
to try Black Musk again today. I noticed
that it's labeled as an "Aftershave/Cologne". I'd never tried it as an aftershave, so this
morning I did, and I splashed some on my neck and chest too. I'm enjoying this so much more than I did
when I'd reviewed it. I must have been
in the wrong mind set when I wore it before.
No, this does not smell like Kool Aid or shampoo, nor is it
overly sweet. What we have here is a
very nice, breezy, watery-textured musk scent, with some very light herbal and
citrus notes added to give it some zest and a little bit of complexity. It's airy and transparent, and its scent
floats around you like an ocean breeze.
Yes, it smells synthetic, but it's well balanced, so that isn't
problematic. It's just a really pretty,
comfortable scent, but it's not wimpy.
Black Musk may not be something I reach for when I'm in the
mood to wear musk - I'll go for Jovan's Musk For Men or Muscs Koublai Khan for
that - but it's a good go-to fragrance that you can wear every day, in every
occasion. Big thumbs up now.
MY RATING: 8/10
