Reviews of Ambergris

A slightly musky, mainly green scent, far more concentrated in the original oil version, than in the currently available diluted Monsieur Musk, now put out by Dana.

Don't spend hundreds on the original oil, now as rare as hen's teeth, until you've picked up a bottle of the Monsieur Musk and tried it out - sells in department stores for under $20.

OMG ... simple as that!

I have a small sample from the TPC as I am fascinated by the note. It is described there as a "skin" scent. Initially it was medicinal and metallic and interesting. The opening softens in a few seconds. It remains a clean-smelling medicinal scent, but hovering just above are camphor notes and beach (I mean salt, wind, and driftwood NOT Pina Coladas) notes. It may sound delusional, but there is something like cinnamon in the mix....though this is not remotely spicy. This is unlike any other thing I have smelled. It does not wear like perfume. It is a veil on the skin. It reminds me of men. (I don't want to push it into a category of masc.) Very interesting.
