Reviews of Citrus Musk

This is a really fantastic citrus eau de cologne. It smells just like it's titled: of citrus and musk - in this case lemon and lime and white musk. There is also tons of lemongrass in this - I've smelled lemongrass essential oil and this smells very similar (lemongrass basically smells like sweet lemon candy somewhat with a sort of green vibe, to my nose). It starts with the beautiful green-leaning citrus (due to a lot of lime note) and dries down to white musk with hint of white flowers like lily of the valley. Those are the only things I detect. This is probably better used as an aftershave than as a proper cologne though since projection and longevity are both weak. But they are stronger than regular aftershaves, but weaker than eau de colognes on the market. The citrus in this is the sweet kind, so it smells like candy sort of. This doesn't bother me however as I really like the scent anyway. If you want a ramped up version of this exact scent, try Anglia Spiced Limes. And a super ramped up version of this with beastmode projection and longevity is Mancera's Lemon Line. They both smell like Pinaud Citrus Musk but with maybe less of the musk (they also share the candy lemon and lime opening). Overall, this is my favourite from Pinaud's inexpensive cologne offerings, along with their Virgin Island Bay Rum. But this is for the summer while I think bay rum is a winter scent. I ended up mixing this with 4711 Eau de Cologne and putting it in a travel atomizer to spray on whenever I feel like it.

Well, on the positive side its potent, very inexpensive and the musk is good, IMO. However the citrus is very synthetic and way too artificial to be taken seriously. Think lemonhead candy with lime and a shot of musk and you have the general effect in mind. If that works for you, you can save a lot of cash with this and any other Pinaud product I have tried. I adore their bay rum, so have found one diamond in the rough there.

The top notes are as expected: lime, lemongrass and bergamot - refreshing indeed. The drydown has a hint of white florals, but I am getting mainly jasmine and some carnation. The musk enters as a middle note but it is in the base when it comes to the fore, added to some woodsy notes and a dash of vanilla.

A nice refreshing scent for warmer autumn or cooler summer days, with adequate sillage, limited projection and less than two hours of longevity in the after shave, a bit more in the EdC. Well done overall. 3.5/5.

This scent has a powdery scent to it that reminds one of baby powder or an after shower talc, which is pleasant to the nose. It also has a minty scent, which is great those of you who love mint like myself. A great after shave-cologne for the spring & summer, or anytime you want to wear it. Another definite 5 stars out of 5.

Love this offering from Pinaud, very addicting citrus sweet musk smell that drys down and settles into a subtle clean scent that sadly doesn't last long enough.It sees a place in my rotation......worth trying!

A very good lemon/lime/musk fragrance in my opinion. I've only used the aftershave, so I can't really testify to the longeivity of this fragrance. My barbershop sells this line of products so I've enjoyed them for years.
