    Default Please Suggest a Woody Musk

    I am looking for suggestions for a woody musk, or a musky wood scent to get as an aftershave. I'm not really sure where to even start. Would prefer a designer scent if possible. Thanks for your help

    Not an aoud scent (as far as I know), released rather recently, and is under the radar at this point.

    I liked it - there was no vanilla or any sweet spices in this one, just a rather sharpish musk rounded out by wood notes. You can get samples at Luckyscent.

    I forgot to mention Bois et Musc from Serge Lutens.
    Based on Cedar but very nice as well.

    My appreciation of most musks is much more theoretical than practical, with Muscs Koublaï Khän being the ultimate sensual animalic musk. Bois et Musc (a 1992 Chris Sheldrake creation) is a much more restrained fragrance, pairing vegetal musk with Atlas cedarwood. Like Muscs Koublaï Khän, it is sweet and animalistic, however cedar softens the musky notes and lends a satiny counterpoint. Whereas Muscs Koublaï Khän is a Luis Buñuel film, shocking and erotic, Bois et Musc is a much softer take on the sensual aspect of musk. It has an interesting quality of appearing much more innocuous than it really is by starting out gently sweet and smooth and then revealing its more animalic side in the drydown. Perhaps, not as innovative as Muscs Koublaï Khän, but more wearable for me. Bois de Jasmin, July 2005.
