enjoyable and soft, easy to wear
This is a scent for blending into the background. It isn't the kind of scent that stops you in you tracks. I can't detect much floral, just a very comforting powdery musk. It reminds me of being cuddled by my mother even though I don't think she wore this. It's lovely as a bath powder. Recently it seems that Avon have tried to keep prices low and quality has suffered with a lot of their lines. This one is the same as it always was, dare I say a 'classic'. It does what it says on the tin 'Soft Musk'. I'd wear it to work to smell 'nice'.
Got this from a dear friend, but I could never really get enthused about it. It wasn't actively foul; it was just very, very synthetic-smelling and kind of odd to me. Set off my allergies, too. The later offshoot, Peony Soft Musk, smelled nothing like it and was really lovely, one of my alltime Avon faves.
This scent make me feel delighted and smoothed. feminie in a tender way. Not loud but soothing and warm. The only pity is that staying power is limited. On my skin just 3-5 hours.
Oh My Gosh! I didn't think they made this scent at AVON anymore. I just noticed today they still carry it on their website and I hadn't worn it since the 1980's.
I was given a very small bottle of Avon Soft Musk as a child. I remember it having a soft, powdery, innocent, floral scent. A lot of other perfumes would cause my allergies to act up, but this one was just perfect. I loved it and it lasted quite a long time. Not to mention, it was appropriate for any age because of how delicate it was. A true gem and I see it is very affordable too. I drained every last drop out of that little bottle.
