    Default Rasa and Rasa Xtreme

    I did sniff these two side by side. Rasa is roses and musk, delightful and bright, whereas in the extreme version the musk really comes to the foreground, this is truly an "animalic" frag, a bit too much for me , but I am certain that fans of Musc Kublai Khan would be swooning over this one.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    I'm completely smitten with Rasa, but the XTreme...Rasa applied heavily in a public restroom. It might work much better on me when I'm not in 80 degree sun, however, so I'm hanging onto my sample.

    But Darling, you have your golden years to look forward to! I am certain that in my forties my reaction ("my" = bod and nose) would have been the same as yours. But into my 70s I find that musk has lost some of it's rawness but retained it's musk-ness (!!!) and becomes the most wonderful base note upholding and mellowing brighter and rounder notes without becoming discordant as it once did.

    On me anyway.

    Keep tuned for the Ava-Luxe Experience on your nearest BaseNotes Board!! :bounce:
