    Kiehl's Original Musk by Kiehl's

    For the first half an hour or so after applying Kiehl's all I could think of was "this smells a lot like Kouros". After the initial blast of Kouros-like goodness, a more floral character starts to emerge with roses and some other florals (ylang ylang?) making an appearance. A slightly dirty musk holds everything together and stops it from becoming too floral. The florals die down a little in the dry down and a certain powderiness to the musk appears, smoothing its edges and taming it to a large degree. Longevity is very good (I got slight hints of it in the breeze a good 10 hours after a light application), and it projects well although it is not a "sillage monster".

    Overall, a Kiehl's a nice musk that although it brings to mind other perfumes it has a character all of its own.
