    One of the soapiest radiant musks ever inhaled in my life, a sort of clean hotel bathroom aroma, really far more soapy than properly musky/boise. Faint citrus at the beginning are the prelude to an extremely dazzling combination of balsams (myrrh, benzoin?), resins, honey/wax (probably the "golden side of the moon"), spices (cinnamon?), may be eliotrope and white musk. The aroma runs pretty lineal till the end in its neutral soapy nostalgic way. Faint structure and minimalism for this extremely ethereal mélange.
    Ps. Extremely silky, mannered, romantic, i detect a subtle final spicy sophistication which is anyway too faint in the general bath of soap. Extremely refined and restrained. Really plunged in a disappeared era.

    Bright, sweet smelling musk which lasts, unusally for SMN, a long time. The overall impression though is of a Hotel soap and is very linear.

    I chose this after going through the range of possible male fragrances. Warm and seductive like a hot summer evening in Rome. Back in England it soon became too sweet and I gave it away eventually.

    Perhaps not a fragrance for look warm climates, nevertheless thumbs up as I did love it back in Italy.

    After ten minutes the soapiness disappears and it becomes quite a sensual, mysterious fragrance, reminiscent of renaissance Florence,or perhaps the far east.
    I am not a musk person, but when my husband chose this for me I tried it and now love it. I get a lot of compliments too, sometimes from strangers

    Expensive Jovan Musk and that's about it. Nice soapy opening similar to Dial, but the urine-like musk quickly takes over and makes the scent unpleasant.

    A rather acidy sharp blast at the opening for a minute, but then the scent settles down to a quite powdery citrus / almond (I think) / musk. The powdery musk of Muschio Oro does have a rather strong soapy ambiance to it. Muschio Oro is powdery and soapy but in a charming old-fashioned way. The fragrance is not classically structured with a top, mid, and base; it is quite linear and it is beautifully old fashioned. It is very nostalgic, and I am drawn to it because its accords are timeless. I can’t help but smell the depth of past in this fragrance, and I find that Impressive.
