Ok, I got in on Heperd's split on the Musc Ravageur obviously because of the hype. I sprayed 2 healthy sprays to my wrist right out of the shower so as nothing else would interfere with the fragrance and boy am I disappointed with the opening to say the least. I'm not too savy on describing notes too well but according to fragrantica this is suppose to resemble a vanilla/cinnamon/clove combo. What I get out of the opening is a powdery, medicinal smell which is rather unpleasant. For those of you who have used Noxema face cream, it smells identical to that. It's been about 45 minutes to an hour and the only prominent note I'm still getting is Vanilla. There is also a musky feeling to it as others have described. The overall smell is very dated. I'm ultimately not sure what to think of MR but usually with a few full wearings, fragrances will grow on me. I find this is pretty daring to wear anywhere in my opinion. I must add though, the sillage is really good as I can smell it strongly as I'm typing this post.
