The scent, as well as the color of the oil, is deep, black, and rich. Black Musk is, of course, very musky and there’s a distant element of a dark, sweet, fruity aroma to it. For the first half hour to hour, I’m afraid it is almost a cliché… It’s like the backgrounds of myriads of personal products I’ve used for many years so I view it sort of like air – it is an enjoyable scent but it seems like background to me, like something is missing. With the arrival of the middle level, the scent gains more character: I agree with simonrishel that there is a plumy sweetness and tamarind sparkle to the middle level notes – and with this it becomes a more compelling fragrance. With the base, the fragrance broadens out to add a tiny bit of wood, I believe, to make a totally desirable skin scent. I love the long lasting, refined and subtle base.
Very strong, very masculine and at that many men wont like it. I like it. I throws people off and gives you a presence. Smells like Tamarinds and Plums bathing in a non alcohalic Red Wine.
