    Default Any info on Musk Monsieur?

    What does it smell like?
    Any other perfumes similar to it?
    It is by Dana? I always thought it is by Houbigant.

    It was originally created by Houbigant in the early 1970's and then long lost. The company New Dana resurected it and obtained rights to it. The formula I personally feel has been tweeked a little and surely watered down some.

    But it is still one of the best musk scents around - not heavy - almost fresh and clean woodland scent.

    You can find Monsieur Musk is about every drugstore, perfumelife, at least here in Quebec City, so I guess it's the same in Montreal!
    They usually put it along with other cheapies like Stetson, English leather, Coty stuff and the like.

    IMHO one of the best mass markets. On me Monsieur Musk it is quite nice. Slightly soapy, lightly spicy. I'd imagine this is what an "aristocratic soap" would smell like.

    Despite the name, I don't smell any musk in it, but no matter.

    Downsides: Kind of difficult to tell how much to apply though, and the cap is truly cheap and ill fitting.

    Usually available for $9 US, one of the best bargains around. Quite frankly, if this were repackaged & released today as a niche everyone would be calling this a masterpiece.

    Does Monsieur Musk come in a cologne or just aftershave? I only see the aftershave in the stores that carry it.

    I hate this stuff. Nothing like the reviews make it out to be. Nice longevity though. Unfortunatley this is all I can say for it.

    Clean, fresh...maybe a little "green". Really nice for the price.

    Sorry you don't like it, Jesse.

    I agree, did not suit me.

    I got a small bottle really cheap, so I thought I'd try it. There's a synthetic quality to it that I just can't stand, but I can see how some can like it, if cost is taken into consideration.

    This used to be my everyday scent (exclusively) for years, especially in the summer. I discovered Kielh's, so it's now my favorite musk. I still wear Monsieur Musk from time to time, but not the everyday fare anymore. I do get quite a few compliments on it. Infact, I've gotten more compliments while wearing Monsieur than any other fragrance.

    My father-in-law wears this stuff and it smells fantastic on him. A very soapy and clean "musk" (in the farthest stretches of the word). The other day I asked where he gets his and the next day he showed up with an 8 oz bottle for me.

    Whereas it is not something that I could wear every day, it is very nice for the price ($20 for 8 oz), ranking up there with Canoe, Brut, and English Leather for the best drug store scents.

    I also agree with MisterK, in that if this were sold under some niche name, people would be singing its praises.

    I'll close with the statement from the back of the box:
    "He likes it. She likes it.
    The scent everyone understands.
    Stirring. Sensual.
    A totally refreshing blend
    of subtle essences.
    There's only one way to
    know its remarkable effect...
    try it."
    You are not your perfume.
