I sprayed Muscs Koublai Khan on a piece of paper as soon as I got it,
the opening was what some might consider "challenging" but, being a fan
of Kouros, Ungaro II, and other animalic scents, I wasn't dismayed at all.
About 2 hours later, I checked the paper again, and MKK had developed
beautifully into the musky, honeyed rose scent that so many describe.
Really, really nice.
As I am typing now, I am wearing MKK as my scent before bed, and I
really like it. The only drawback I see so far, and it could be a big one
for me, is that it's very much a close to the skin scent. I am not getting
much projection at all, but I knew that going in, as many reviewers stated
that it was a close to the skin scent.
So, in summary, I think this was a good blind buy for me.
I don't think it's nearly as animalic or "challenging" as most people make
it out to be. I don't get any fecal notes at all. All I can detect is some
civet in the opening and heart, but then again, I don't have the most
As an aside, I got samples of MPG Eau des Iles, Fougere Royale, Cologne Pour le Soir
and Absolue Pour le Soir from Luckyscent. ALL OF THOSE, are full bottle worthy,
but I absolutely can't afford all of them.
And also, Divine L'homme Sage is a masterpiece. Wore it today and it is wonderful.
