Reviews of C16

Slightly rubbery, slightly indolic, slightly skanky and somehow slightly clean. While the fragrance C16 is named after a certain musk molecule with 16 carbon atom bonds, there's no doubt in my mind that this is in fact a musk cocktail, and not simply the musk molecule "C16." To my surprise and delight, the fragrance progresses from one musk to another in an olfactory slide show, starting with a bit of skank similar to the musk in Kiehl's Original Musk and eventually drying down to a clean white musk similar to Les Nez's L'Antimatiere.

I didn't find C16 to be a light fragrance, but it's definitely not oppressive either. While the way it smells isn't particularly unique overall, the way it progresses throughout the day is quite genius. It's a little bit of everything all blended to perfection. While I have to admit that C16 somehow never "wowed" me, it did slowly seduce me. I think that's the point.

This is like the musk of angelic creatures. When they list 'crystalline musk' as a note, I never really know what they are talking about, but it should be C16. It is transparent and ethereal, lighter than air, but with a steel belted-tenacity on the skin. It is musk without the skank, but exuding warmth and sensuality. It is a very light scent, and to my nose quite linear. Initially I thought I might be anosmic to it, but it comes alive with the warmth of skin. Perfect alone, it is also great layered with gourmands and orientals and spices. Heavenly.
