I call this my 'London fragrance' as I discovered in the city and have sported it many times when walking the bustling streets. White floral, musky talcum powder and soap is the best way I can describe Kiehl's Original Musk. It's just nice and clean smelling with an interesting twist.

Although I am open to and appreciate "old school" fragrances from decades past, Kiehl's Original Musk comes off as too animalic and floral for my tastes.

KOM is too disconnected from what I would normally enjoy, perhaps due to its being around almost 50 years and seeming more like a quick splash than a more wearable scent.

It is not a bad scent per se and has its place as an understated reference musk scent, but I would rather turn to more "refined" fragrances utilizing musk, such as L'Envol de Cartier EdP.

Try it out at your local Nordstrom, near the men's shaving counters, and you be the judge....acquired taste fragrance is my final word.

Has been said a million times but I shall repeat it - Reference Musk that has withstood the vagaries of reformulations and price gouging.
MKK lovers should get this blind.
MKK haters should get this to understand the appeal behind MKK

FBW in all iterations

Not my favorite musk by an stretch, but an excellent one for those whose ultimate musk scent includes flowers and a only pinch of something animalic in the base. This is a 'dirty' musk at its least offensive and could be worn by anyone, anywhere, and anytime. There is something here that smells a bit synthetic or sharp (that I think others might call 'clean'). This note bothers me no matter how many times I try to wear this, but I'm pretty sure this is a personal problem that won't disturb anyone other than me. I've heard that many famous folks wear this: Julianne Moore, for one, and each of them, in turn, describes this musk as attractive and enticing, and yes, clean.

I've been applying about .5ml during my experiment. This goes on lightly and fades quickly. What I can smell is urine. Is that what musk is? Blah.
Wore this half a day. Another reviewer mentioned he could smell it off and on throughout. I had the same impression, It would show up unexpectedly. More interesting than I thought when I first put it on. Girlfriend found it too powdery. I didn’t sense the powderyness much at all.
Longevity spotty (new classification) I smelled it on for almost 24 hours, but it was like an eye floater or a ghost, if you looked directly at it, it wasn’t there.. Projection poor

Cannot be overrated.

Simply, in proper quantity it's a 2nd-skin type scent, so close to the skin... whether using the edt, oil, or body lotion form. I find the edt to be a bit more floral, hints of lily and rose maybe, so I keep it to just a few sprays. I find the musk favorably similar to what is in MKK or Urban Musk and not that of the 'white' laundry detergent variety.

Since 2011 I've tried to use the SOTD feature to this site as much as possible. Over perhaps an overly zealous journey, at one point having close to 500 bottles in collection, I've worn this one more than any other... by secretariat-like margins. The perfect 2nd skin when I don't particularly want to smell like cologne.
