    Only incidentally a musk

    This is like the kissing cousin of a musk scent. If you buy this because you love musks you may be in for a surprise (as was I). A lemony combination of rose and geranium and powder is the main show here with a strange musk of indeterminate type showing up about half way through. Oddly, I hate rose scents, but I don't mind this at all, which I'm guessing has to do with the leavening, undercutting effect of the geranium. This scent is sprightly and refreshing (even with its generous dollop of powder) and so typically feminine-smelling that I would LOVE to smell it on a man--just for the piquant juxtaposition of rosey sweetness on a male body.

    I quite like this perfume, but I don't think of it as a musk, and neither should you--if you want to enjoy it.

    Pros: Sweetly aromatic
    Cons: short end of the musk stick"

    Rose musk

    I think it is a heavy floral scent with medium muskyness, and some slight spicyness to it. Musk is the name of the fragrance, but in my opinion "Rose Musk" would be more appropiate. In the drydown the vanilla and amber is more dominant, giving the composition some sweetness. It is more on the feminine side, but I can imagine wearing this for a romantic evening, or a day when I am in a bright, poetic mood. I think Lorenzo Villoresi blended this in a more traditional manner. Sample before buy. I like it.

    Pros: Great quality
    Cons: A little too feminine"

    It arrives with a statement that is far too powdery, floral, and sweet for me. However it evolves to something more woody and slightly pungent that is interesting and mysterious -- and thankfully less flowery. In some ways it is evocative of a woman's perfume of some decades ago. A lady might enjoy this and I might enjoy her for wearing it, but not on me.

    I have to say that whether you like any particular scent, LV is always interesting and innovative... and worth checking out.

    A big rose, another big rose, and then some light laundry detergentesque musk. Far too feminine of a floral for a man to consider wearing. There's some vanilla sweetening the rose here, thus it is not the natural, dry rose of Acqua di Parma, but rather a rose potpourri.

    In one word : GHASTLY.

    As unfortunate as it does sound, this is the only Villoresi scent I truly detest. Unbelievably synthetic from the get-go, It almost chokes me in a vice grip of very intensely done powdery accords, which otherwise would've been enjoyable had then been less synthetic. A complete synth bomb from top to bottom.

    Lorenzo Villoresi Musk opens with a sharp, aldehydic/synthetic, powdery floral blend with a heart of deep, dark, rose. To me, it's like a powdery floral, Oriental "Sherbet" done in a very old fashioned way(No. 88 and Penhaligons come to mind). The florals portrays a color in deep violets...i still can't shake the oriental sherbet association. as if it's some sort of refreshing elixir made to seduce. The opening accords are indeed very uplifting and strong, kinda sets the tone up for what’s to follow. I'm typically attracted to powdery scents and this is what this scent has to offer in it's mid notes! glorious powdery notes begins to spread it's wings by mid notes with hints of spices and touch of rosewood. Throughout these progressions, this scent never comes of as a woody scent. Floral elements with a exotic touch of spices and woody notes. The powdery notes carry with it, musky undertones wafting to the surface as white smoke. it stays a little musty and powdery towards base evoking a residue like powdery musk note
    LV musk is not a everyday wear kinds...it's a kind (imho) which would suit deep colored silk shirts, the one's typically worn to lounge/tech parties. This, also happens to be a perfect e.g. of a Unisex scent. would smell glorious/suave on a lady.
