I'd venture to guess there are plenty of us here who know what you go thru....just when you know you shouldn't, CAN'T buy another fragrance....it's too late. The deed is done. I wonder if we all share some sort of gene. :
I ordered some samples from Luscious Cargo last week and LV Musk is one of them. I am on my quest for a good rose scent where I can smell the rose. I love Ungaro III but get ZERO roses out of it. I've read past posts that said LV Musk has a quite distinctive rose note. You got my interest with the "soapy rose" and the "smeary musk" comment.
You also got my interest with swollen lips and the tongues but lost me when the cat entered the picture! ;D ;D
Can't wait for my samples!
