Reviews of Pierre Cardin Musk

If you like the original PC monsieur then, I think you may like this one even more. It has the oakmoss attributes along with what seems a very subdued cinnamon and cloves maybe? Definitely has a resinous trail with the lavender staying in there the whole time to say hello. If there is musk, it might be making this a little dirty is my guess. This is a VERY nice fragrance of yesteryearand would compete with anything current.
Cardin knew how to bring it .....

After so many years, Pierre Cardin Musk remains one of my endeared favorites.

It's one of the first colognes I wore as a teenager, and like then (although I'm in my 40's now ;^P ), PCM still strikes me as pleasant, clean, stable, and balanced. It lasts a long time on me, and it doesn't change character over time (a BIG pet peeve of mine with some scents).

Distinct, tasteful, and masculine after nearly three decades. Check out Dior's Sauvage, which IMO is a strong echo of Pierre Cardin Musk, in a more modern but unpretentious way.

The major elements of this scent include herbal lavender and sage, dry leather, and anisic amber. I'd also say some spice is here but it's blended into the mix so it has a creamy quality. This is not sweet and the animalic quality is not too obvious. Not any muskier than typical men's fragrances of that period, so I don't get the name. Starkness is the word that best describes this one, so if you only like "fresh" or "sporty" scents this is not for you. It's rather linear and slowly fades out over time. If you are going to a rodeo, this one would be appropriate to wear. A few too many notes to be niche but not that far off.

A warm, resinous oakmoss and musk. Spicy yet smooth. Much like PC pour Monsieur just with a spice to it. Very nice.

This certainly is an ‘80s fragrance: From the start, it seems rough and aggressive and not at all musky. It is actually quite resinous – almost to the point of resembling some of the darker niches. It just doesn’t change – it holds that resinous darkness until the end. Warm, yes, but fresh? – not what I’m smelling! And I never get any musk. I really believe that my sample has gone bad, which is very unfortunate, because I love this the way it performs in this sample – it’s great, it’s niche and I want to buy a bottle. I’m gong to an eye out for Pierre Cardin Musk and hope that I find one that smells like my sample – a “spoiled” one. I’m voting thumb’s up but again I must say that I don’t know if this excellent resinousness is the way it’s supposed to smell.

If you enjoy MUSK and a very warm, fresh, lasting scent...this is the ticket. It's very hard to find...but so many of the good ones, are. The best of Pierre Cardin for men
