This may be the strangest musk fragrance I've ever smelled, certainly nothing like what I usually think of when it comes to musks. This is a sweet, animalic floral musk that smells like a weird cross between something a Victorian dandy would wear and a hippie who hasn't bathed in months. I like it.
The musk note seems to take a backseat to what smells like
orange blossom, clove, patchouli and amber.
Molinard Musk goes on spicy and sweet, smelling sort of like orange
blossom soaked in root beer. It has a
rich, boozy smell that I like, and depending on what notes your nose and brain
detect, it will either smell like something a polo playing blueblood would
wear, or something you'd buy at a head shop.
The musk here is just the way I like it: dirty and
beastly. It actually smells like civet,
but you don't even smell it at first.
You won't start to notice this skankiness until the top notes burn off
and the fragrance starts to warm up with your skin. Molinard Musc isn't the kind of perfume that
you'll smell and instantly think, "Oh yeah, that's a musk
perfume". Rather, the musk is what
gives the fragrance its gutsy edge and makes it unique.
Like all of Molinard's perfumes, Musc is inexpensive at
about $30 for 100 ml.. It's a totally
unique, daring and well blended fragrance.
If any of this sounds good to you, a blind purchase won't kill your
MY RATING: 8/10
