    Muscs Koublaï Khän by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    Muscs Koublai Khan is, above everything that I have smelt (and I have sampled well over 350 fragrances at this point in time), the closest that I have ever experienced in terms of olfactory perfection when applied correctly. It is like nothing I have ever smelt. It is thick, creamy, utterly sexy, and does everything exactly right. It took me a long time to come to this conclusion, but perseverance paid off. It is effortless to enjoy. Sillage is decent, and the longevity is remarkable.

    However... my girlfriend and best friend tell me that whenever I wear this, I smell like a homeless guy. Clearly they do not know what they are talking about, and I remind them of this frequently.

    Furthermore, it layers beautifully with Molinard - Vanille. Three sprays of the Khan, One spray of the vanilla.
