    Default Re: Ajmal AA Indian Pure Musk Ghazelle. Opinions?

    So Ajmal's Musk Ghazelle is aka Black Musk? That's a relief, because when I checked out their store the SA told me they didn't have anything called Musk Ghazelle.

    I tried the Black Musk, but (unfortunately) it didn't translate to "barnyard" to my nose. I thought it smelled like tar and licorice over musk. But I did end up buying the inferior grade. Not bad stuff.

    Well, I ended up buying a tola of Black Musk but sold it off within days. I was very disappointed with it - floral, fruity and rather tame. As Mr. Bon Vivant mentioned, there was some liquorice but hardly any barnyard.

    As for AA Indian Pure Musk Ghazelle, I wore it in public a couple of weekends ago... on the underground... The a middle-aged guy, sitting next to me, kept on fidgeting and and giving me weird stares. However, after he got off, three sexy blondes sat near me and they didn't appear to be that disgusted with the smell. Actually, I think they were more 'intrigued' by it...

    As if things were not confusing enough, there is now an Ajmal Musk Gazelle AAA. ("The extra A is for extra ..."? - I dare not finish the thought.) See here:

    Note the otherworldly price. Note that it's for 3 ml, i.e., a quarter-tola.

    Looks like it could be the original Ajmal Musk Gazelle, if it's genuine (see posts 85-87 and my previous post).

    The original was said to have been around $90/tola. This AAA would be about $640/tola!

    Quite possibly but the original is now extremely difficult to find and there is still plenty of demand for it. Who knows?

    Go on, be a sport!

    Why would I wear something that takes ME weeks or months to get used to, while those around me have to tolerate it without this deep "understanding" of my stinkiness.

    I wore some of mine yesterday, but just a drop. I love it, but it won't replace MKK in my collection. I actually thought AA Musk Ghazelle would be even more animallic than I expected. It's wearable if you go lightly with it.

    Bought the stuff as advertised on ebay by paradiseperfumesandgem, i really like it but am confused as to whether its the same one being discussed last couple of years.
    There is defininite lack of the overwhelming barnyard albiet very strong silage and longetivity. Starts of with a sweetish medicinal note almost liquorish. Smells like a very well refined black musk but different. The only barnyard tone i felt is that of slight stale urine undertone in the begining that lasts for an hour or two.....nose has gone numb...need coffee beans! Looks very dark reddish brown liquid with moderate viscousity.
    Am so bloody confused and am not sure if this is the one everyone has been raving on about the last couple of years..... I know curiosity killed the cat but in my case my wallet!....... I so want to try the now legendary stinky 'Ajmal musk gazelle grade AA' and experience it for myself.
