i owned LV musk and Santa Maria Novella musk which are cousins. LV is one of the best crafted frags i have ever encounered. A bottle will last you a lifetime because you only need one spray on the chest and the sillage will do the rest. The scent itself is beautiful...its rose...deep rose which creates warmth on the skin which is where i suppose the musk comes in. I have had so many compliments on this from many lovely ladies who never ever commented on anything i wore before....get it...i have never heard of the other frag that you mentioned.
