    I like how it smells for a few minutes. I just hate that it lasts so long. I have so many better scent options.

    I agree; it's a simple, pleasant, smell-good fragrance. That being said, I don't reach for musks that often.

    Monsieur Musk is also excellent and inexpensive.

    Yeah I love it it's pretty nostalgic. But it's wayyyyy stronger in terms of lasting power than I'd like, and overpowers my colognes.

    I love Aqua Velva Musk. It only comes in aftershave splash version as far as I know it. I pour it into spray bottle, but the only thing about it is that it does not lasts long even if I do like 5 spritzes. I would love it even more if they would make it in a stronger version like EDT so it would last longer. They have it frequently in the Rite Aid on promo at 2 for 1 (BOGO free).

    I have yet to try Aqua Velva Musk but own and enjoy wearing from time to time the equally inexpensive Aqua Velva Ice Blue.

    I am certainly brave enough to admit I don't like it. Ice Blue is pleasant though, I use that sometimes.

    I love it. It actually has quite a following over at badgerandblade.com

    Yep. I like it. I like Ice Blue, too. If you love classic men's fragrances, you really need these in your wardrobe. What else are you going to do with that $5 anyway?

    Saw this on clearance at Walgreens, took one sniff, and put it back on the shelf. I just cannot seem to enjoy musk scents.

    I like it....it's what every grandpa should smell like, and I mean that in a good way.. It's very pleasant barbershop scent hut agree that silage and longevity are almost too much...like brillcream, a little dab will do ya!

    I like it too, along with Ice Blue.

    Starts off okay but the drydown features strong "laundry musk," which is great if you like that sort of thing. It's also a bit sweet and there's a mild fougere accord.

    I like it a lot, but I wish it was more complete with longevity and more power.

    I admit to liking it, but it overpowers everything. You'd use it like you'd use a Pinaud product - instead of cologne.

    The (anise?) note is kind of strong.

    Yeah... AVM is nice enough. Almost like a drugstore powerhouse frag.
    And as others have said here, nothing wrong with Ice Blue either.

    I don't care for it. I would rather wear Jovan Musk if I had to wear a musk.
