Musk for Men fragrance notes

Reviews of Musk for Men

Smooth, sexy classic oriental pseudo-musk scent that should be a part of any young man's rite of passage. :-)

I say pseudo-musk because its musk isn't nearly as convincing as, say, Coty's animalic creation Wild Musk (can hear the tv ad now, "IT MUST BE THE MUUUUSK: COTY WIIIILD MUUUSK...IT MUST BE THE MUSK!")

Coty Musk for Men is a laid back, spicy-woody oriental with a scintilla of musk detectable to the senses. It's a reserved gentleman's musk scent that won't come across as too beastly, rather polite and restrained. Judging from the commercials I used to see of Coty Musk, it's a cologne that does its job well but not for the most obvious reason: The musk itself, per se.

I never had a cloying moment beholding the warm, spicy quality after-shave effect of Coty Musk for Men. Even today, if I didn't feel obliged to try one of the zillion options in my collection, CMfM can cover me without regrets.

This simple, basic and dependable scent is definitely a drugstore staple, so it's not impossible to check out without having to buy it. I still consider it a classic alongside favorites like Stetson Cologne, Royal Copenhagen, Old Spice, and other legendary scents.

I like this stuff. A very basic male version of 'sweet'. Reminds me a little of Brut. Does NOT remind me of Canoe, which smells like cotton candy to me. Somewhat similar to Clubman, and and maybe less 'complex', but stronger and longer-lasting. Definitely not like Royal Copenhagen, which never did anything for me; neither did Jade East, as far as those 'types' of fragrances go. Also not like Jovan Musk for Men - also by Coty - which has some notes that I just don't like.

A pretty cut and dry fragrance really.Barbershop talc powder,a pinch of dark oriental spice,and a light brush of musk.Low projection but a little splash of it gave you 4-5 hours of enjoyment.I'd say Coty Musk for Men hung on for another hour or so as a skin scent.

As lacking in dimension as this simple fragrance was?very safe fragrance.In my opinion it added more class to the individual wearing this over Pinaud's Clubman.On the other hand I can't give a thumbs up and give Coty the credit for this fragrance because they didn't design it...Avon did.Coty copied this from the original formula of Avon's Wild Country.All Coty did was tweak the spice to a darker side where Avon's formula had a buttery rich tone to it's spice.Coty spent quite a bit of time copying other fragrances in the 70's and 80's and cashing in through wider distribution connections.Stetson was a tweak off Chaps.Jovan Musk was a tweak off Tabac or Vetiver by Guerlain.Sex Appeal was a stripped down take from Pierre Cardin's Pour Monsieur.No...Coty doesn't get credit for this one.

I saw a bottle of this at Wal-Mart today while shopping for groceries. I hadn't worn any fragrance today and figured I'd spritz some on. I'm really loving it! I stopped by my mom's before hitting home and she commented on it, saying it reminded her of the 70's and that she liked it. It DOES bring me back to the 70's when I'd get cologne sets for Christmas with soap on a rope and talcum powder sets.

It's definitely a one-noter. The one note is good. Sweet. Clean. Masculine...but in an old school way, not like today's 'masculine' which is metrosexual and fraught with androgyny. Nothing wrong with being 'metrosexual' at all. Don't get me wrong. This is just straight up 'guy getting a shave at the barber'. Something very charming about it however dated it is.

It's not lasting very long. I sprayed the one blast on at 1:30 and at 5:30 it's barely hanging in there. At less than $10 for a bottle, I'm going back later to pick up a bottle. It'll be great for after the gym.

a formidable barbershop/talc as simple as it gets. very clean and fresh. nice on a day you want something simple and plain to put on. nice for milder weather..

Pinaud Clubman minus most of Clubman’s endearing orange-citrus-something opener. This is a nice, sweet creamy synthetic talc, warm and unpretentiously simple. Pretty much no development, not that one would expect complexity and evolution from a $10 drug store fragrance. Pleasant and sweet, like a bag of twizzlers.
