    Default musc ravageur

    hmm. so much hype for this.

    i ordered a sample of this and received it last week.

    on my skin-----it makes me smell like a candle. that's about it. LOL. i get no musk.....i don't get much power. i just feel like a walking candle. candle wax. kinda smells a little bit like a women's hand lotion too....

    i was expecting a musk BOOM, but i get way more musk outta my trusted Helmut Langs than i get outta this. It's also very feminine isn't it?

    am i missing something? i enjoy my French Lover sample i got with this much more actually.....

    For me MR is a massive overload of cinnamon and it's a mystery to me when others claim other notes to better characterize the fragrance. However, I love cinnamon and I honestly think there isn't much like MR, even though it certainly gets to much at times.

    there is a bit of cinnamon isn't there....hmm...it's not really a sharp cinnamon the way i smell it...seems sort of more like a creamy cinnamon.

    I think most people don't really think it's a musk dominant scent either. It's nice and I like it, but it took me a while till I got into it. Give it a few more tests in cooler weather.

    I had a 10ml decant that lasted 3 years, and now it's finished, I'm still deciding if I should buy a bottle or go with another decant.

    it's another case of a sample being misleading too. malle is smart to make 5 ml samples...

    I definitely smell a good deal of musk in this one, but also a nice blend of wood and vanilla in the base. For me, this one is all about the dry down.
