Reviews of Sanguine Muskissime

Another middle of the road offering – someone should tell MPG that if one lingers too long there, there’s a risk of getting run over. Here we have a sharp (as in non-sweet) citrus, mainly orange with some more acidic tones, possibly lemon or grapefruit, paired with the over-familiar vague musk that MPG are so fond of. The beginning is somewhat odd with a curious herbal note a bit like coriander leaf jarring with the citrus, and the musk coming across as dry as a hungover person’s tongue. By the time the winged coriander decides to take flight, so has much of the citrus and the musk has blown up into a gigantic marshmallow. Of course this musk is quite tenacious, but it also seems completely pointless.

Genre: Citrus

Sanguine Muskissime is a simple pick-me-up of a fragrance: a bright, crisp orange note and a clean, soapy musk. And that’s pretty much it. It’s as sheer as a scent can come, and while given it's not terribly long lived, (no surprise, given its components,) it does offer fairly generous projection and sillage while it lasts.

The orange of course wears off long before the musk, so that after the first hour or so the drydown is a light skin scent. I wish the musk in this composition smelled a little bit less like laundry detergent, but all in all this is a nice summertime splash. Would I recommend it over this same house’s brilliant Bahiana, Malle’s Cologne Bigarade, or any of the Guerlain Eau de Cologne variants? No. In fact, for a lot less money, you might just want to stick to Hermès Eau d’Orange Verte.

It opens with a realistic and fresh citrus accord that reminds me of oranges and tangerines at the same time. There is something on this part that is similar to some mandarine scents, like Hermes Eau de Mandarine Ambree or Guerlain Acqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic, with the difference that the two mentioned seems more sweet and Sanguine Muskissime is more bitter and fizzy. It's a very simple fragrance, light, that after the refreshing citrus part goes into a faint musk and slightly woody drydown with some citrus aspects. It's more of a refreshing aroma to be wore after bath, because it's very discreet even if you take a bath of it

Meh. It's got citrus on top (it's far too sweet and candied for my taste - I think it smells like Tang, which is a pet peeve of mine) and some creamy musky wood that comes in shortly. After a while, the citrus quiets down a bit and I get some of MPG's house notes (namely the sawdusty sandalwood from Santal Noble and his famous blackberry note). With time, it dulls down to a soapy sandalwood sweetened with whatever parts of the citrus and berries are lingering. All that being said, it mostly just smells like creamy fake orange.

I'm voting thumbs down because of that darn Tang smell and because it's sort of boring. For the same idea done way better, check out MPG's Eau de Gantier, which gets the balance better and adds some compelling spices and aromatics, while avoiding smelling like Tang.

everyone is pretty spot on, so I guess it depends on what you like. Bright citrus in the beginning that leads to soapy, sweaty light musk. It isn't my cup of teas but I could see how it might be great during the oppressive heat of summer.

Nice scent. Doesn't last long, though . Citrus and musk. It's unique but... hey wait, darn it come back, scent! Where are you going....? How can I review you if you don't stay around long enough? Jerk...
