I'm amazed I like this, since I hate white musk. This is a great one, linear yet complex. It does not smell like shampoo or laundry detergent.
The musk is very prominent from beginning to end, but there are green notes, woody and spicy notes very carefully blended in with the musk to make it crisp and aromatic. Smells almost identical to the drydown in Creed's Original Vetiver. A great fragrance for a great price.
MY RATING: 8.5/10
Smells very similar to L'Occitane's Eau Des Baux to my nose.
Extremely masculine musk with its agreement of windy and green lavender, astringent flowers (a stiff geranium) and a final base of powdery woodsy, smoky tonka, vetiver and ambergris. The musky base is cool, spicy-rooty and virile though linear and monolithic. Synthetic but decent, cheap and long lasting.

very musky and sweet.. i dont love or hate it but find it quite neutral.. i prefer white musk sport by the body shop.. its alot better and smells more expensive
Clean is the word for this perfume, squaky clean just out of the shower and sorry but not opening notes, no heart notes either, this baby goes right to basenotes in a hurry. I do not detect any flowers on it but a musk note that overwhelms everything, and as it musk is not sweet enough, tonka bean is the squire to the musk knight. Some sandalwood and vetiver remain in the background but all the glory goes to this musk/tonka pair as they march this very linear perfume to its end.
To enjoy this perfume you must like musk very much and do not look for development here because this scent is as linear as it could be.
Like most Body Shop perfumes, longevity is poor and sillage is mediocre, but the scent is so pleasant that it would get my thumbs up.
