    Brut Musk FTW!

    Lynx/Axe Musk was the daddy though, but that is discontinued (Axe Moschus in Germany is Lynx Musk but it's reformulated tosh... yuck!)
    My Current 5 stars..... Brut, Lynx Java, Lynx Oriental, Lynx Musk, Lynx Inca, Lynx Fever, Addiction Spice Fire, Hugo Energise, Sean Jean Unforgivable, Burberry Touch, Jean Paul Gaultier Le Mâle, cKBe & cK1

    I like what I like, so sue me!

    212 has a nice musk dry down but I would have to say khiels. Edit: KC Reaction has a nice clean white musk dry down.

    Kiehl's Musk is the best inexpensive musk soliflore, while I think Himalaya, with it's very heavy dose of musk in the base, is the "best" musk-dominant fragrance that is not soliflore, but it's in the same malle-esque price range so scratch it. Still have yet to try Muscs Koublai Khan.

    It will have to go to either the EDP or Oil of Musc Ravageur. I do like MKK but it wears more like skin scent than a perfume and a little less wearable.

    The gold musk is good but the musk comes from a plant derivative and not animal hence is why it is a clean musk with slight powder undertones. Makes me think of how a sexy school girl's panties should smell. It also smells like dial soap as discussed before.

    I just tried this one today (Santa Maria Novella's Musk (Moschio)) - it's hands down my new favorite musk. I find Kiehl's a little too thick and indolic, while MKK is too much of a beast. SMN's Musk is just perfect - it's slightly powdery with an incense feel and a heart of musk. It smells like angel skin or something ridiculously poetic like that.

    To correct my earlier post (#5):

    Skin Musk Perfume - Parfums de Coeur

    This started my musk journey in 1979. No mention in the Fragrance Directory, but seems to be licensed to Prince Matchabelli. Still the best i have smelled.

    This I think is pretty much THE answer to your question considering the price consideration. Without that consideration, I'd say MKK.

    I just noticed you're in India and I have no idea if you have Kiehl's there!
