    Default Is any fragrance a sweet, powdery musk?

    I was wondering is there any fragrance that you could describe as a sweet powdery musk? I guess I would say something along the lines of a Musk Scented Talcum Powdery type scent. Does this scent exist?

    helmut lang edp or edc.

    the eau de parfum (edp) is more powdery and a tad sweeter than the edc...and i'd recommend it over the edc due to its fantastic longetivity and sillage. this is THE finest musk i've ever tried....still.....and i highly recommend you at least try it.

    the powder is not strong, but there is plenty of floral powder going on in it...but it's lightly sweet and very very creamy and smooth. check it out!

    Montale's White Musk fits the bill too.

    Not super powdery in texture but it smells like powder. The texture is a bit creamier though with a prominent smooth ylang ylang note coupled with white musk.

    Fleur Poudrée de Musc..Les Néréides. Soft earthy musk, nothing sharp or pungent as I find some musks to be. . Slight powder accord on the drydown. Lasts forever, and is not cloying in anyway. Also very reasonably priced. A much underated house.
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    The bigger problem is finding a fairly dry musk.

    MPG Ambre Precieux has a really nice sweet, powdery musk note.

    Helmut Lang EDP and parfum are both more powdery than the EDC which has a very soapy top note.

    I saw in another thread that CK Be might also be an option--I smelled it only once, and I thought it was similar to, but not as good as, the Helmut Lang in EDC concentration.

    I second Les Neriedes as a house. They have a white musk called Musc Samarkand which is soapy and sweet with a bit of powder in the drydown.
