Fragrance Review: Serge Lutens Clair de Musc

Rate this Entry
Clair de Musc

Genre: Floral Oriental

This light, cheerful floral musk composition is about as far away as Sheldrake and Lutens could get from the animalic Muscs Koublaï Khan and still have the word “musc” on the label. If your idea of a musk fragrance is enveloping decadence and indulgent sensuality, this is not for you. If, on the other hand, your ideal musk smells of freshly-scrubbed skin and mild roses, you’re going to like Clair de Musc. Me, I’m more of a Koublaï Khan sort of guy, but I see the attraction this cuddly little scent may have for some. Its greatest liability is a tendency to smell like (expensive) shampoo in the drydown.
