I unexpectedly found Musc in Sephora in Calais on my way home from a French holiday several years ago. It was a meeting that was obviously meant to be.
Musc by Remeniscence is a beautiful light (but not quite white) musk scent, it's more sheer than white, and is complimented by the ylang-ylang top note (a note I detest on its own, but is *wonderful* in this scent).
The ylang is sweetened by almond, vanilla and benzoin (three of my favourite notes) and the musk becomes more musky for a couple of hours and the combination is utterly beautiful. However the scent is not at all long lived, and after applying liberally in the morning, can hardly be smelled by mid-afternoon which is a real shame as the dry-down is stunning, sheer, dry and warm, but totally not powdery.
What surprises me is that few people know of this scent - I can't believe that I'm the first person to write a review!
