    Re: What's the best men's musk fragrance?

    If it's a clean musk you're looking for, try Jo Malones Iris and White Musk. The musk appears at the very beginning, and the iris is a nice compliment.

    Re: Best Cologne (EdC) out of the Bunch

    The Chanel cologne has the best longevity and added musks that carry the citrus to the end. Spray liberally and enjoy!

    Re: Best sprayers?

    Second the Roja Doves. The spray is incredible. One shot is all you need. The worst I have is from Puredistance. If you don't spray fast enough, you get a stream of parfum instead of a spray.

    Maison Francis Kurkdjian oud moods are sublime. When you spray it on your wrists they leave an oil on your skin that needs to be rubbed in. My favorite one is Silk Mood.
