    Default musks

    I hear a lot of people talk about white musks, dark musks etc but whats the difference. I think im struggling to know what musk smells like.

    I have CK Be which many people say is one of the best white musks but all i smell is the top notes,, i get berry like smells. I also have Burburry Touch but again i mainly get the top note of violet. is their any scent thats mainly just a white musk so i can spot it?

    What would be a typical dark/heavy musk scent without too much else in their to distract?

    Ava Lux has a White Musk that I love. Jovan has a white musk that you can easily sniff at the drugstore. Some people say that white musk smells clean, while others say it smells creamy, like a baby's clean head.

    Other dark musks are Ava Lux's Kama, BPAL's Snake Oil, and (again with the drugstore), Coty's Wild Musk.

    Musks are everywhere. Wait for the drydown.

    For white musks, I really like the new White Musk for Men by The Body Shop.

    "A modern, masculine, and sensual scent that's an infusion of musk and woods with crisp, fresh, and aromatic notes."

    You are very welcome!

    In Kingdom, I think it is the cumin and not musk that reminds some of "unclean lady parts". I don't find it particularly musky.

    I just tried this and own a bottle myself now too!

    Actually havnt managed to find any other suggestion! Not even Jovan yet. Even the shops selling Serge Lutens didnt carry Muscs Kublai Khan. Ordered a sample of Musc Ravageur though so looking forward to trying that.

    :-) I suspect I would probably prefer this one to the feminine version that Body Shop do. My daughter wears that, but I've never got on with it. I'll be sure and check this one out next week.
