White musk and a somewhat boozy galbanum open up this creation, with the drydown adding a light and fairly bright rose impression, which is mixed with the musk. At first I did not appreciate this phase very much, but with time and more generous application I discovered this combination to be quite a rich, well-balanced and nuanced mix.

A white musk develops, pleasant and, interestingly, this ine is not sweet and given a very discrete crisp-ish touch by a mossy undertone.

The later phase adds geranium, and a gently boozy character.

The sillage is moderate, the projection very good and the longevity ten hours.

This is an agreeable light floral musk scent suitable for warmer autumn days; it is well-blended and the core concept is not without an original twist. 3.25/5.

This is a beautiful fragrance, dominated by musk and rose. None of the main notes are very strong, and there are other notes as well. All in all it is well blended and the rose-musk combo melts perfectly in human skin. I imagine this fragrance on a beautiful woman although it is labeled unisex.

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.
