    Default Best Drugstore Musk?

    I was wondering what everyone here thought was the best drugstore musk. I am talking Coty Musk vs. Jovan Musk vs. Acqua Velva Musk vs. Alyssa Ashley Musk vs. Barbosal Musk vs. anything I left out.

    Coty Musk is pretty nice. I find that its dry down resembles that of Kiehl's Musk, but the opening is slightly less intense. 7/10

    I actually stumbled upon the Alyssa Ashley Musk in Walmart this weekend, and it wasn't pleasant. It was little more than a strong alcohol burn followed by an indeterminate stank. 1/10

    bumping this to give some love to aqua velva musk but would love to hear your opinion on the others.

    Houbigant/Dana's Monsieur Musk is one of the best, IMO. Musky, but with much else going on.

    The only one I could go with is Jovan Musk. Still reminds me of my youth.

    Alyssa Ashley Musk in the pure oil form.

    This was originally made by Houbigant, a company with an impressive pedigree dating to the 18th century (a real one, for that matter) rivaling Guerlain. Too bad they faded away.

    Jovan Heat Hot Bod Musk if your store still has it is great stuff.

    bought the jovan because i saw it. wasn't able to find the alyssa ashley but saw lots of alyssa ashley lotion. jovan kinda smells like an old lady to me. and it doesn't really stink like i was expecting. i much prefer the kiehls in terms of stink now that i tried the jovan. av musk is still tops for being a masculine musk.
