Can Musc Kublai Khan be an everday musk?

PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather
It may have stealth sillage, but it last pretty long. A bit too sexy for work/casual wear but who cares ???? Really.

Great question. I've recently acquired a bottle of this work of art and I've been struggling with the appropriateness of it in certain situations. Be interested to hear others' take on this as I've been kind of hesitant to wear it out of the house.

I think it's subtle, almost subliminal, it can seriously arouse others, so it needs to be used strategically. If you want to get someone at work a little worked up, it's the perfect agent provocateur.
Sincerely, I think it is. On me it's definitely NO sillage monster, in fact, it's pretty subtle. I had been expecting a sexbomb..but on me it's just a somewhat dirty skin musk. I'm not using it to work, just because I'm afraid my nose has a problem and other people might smell all the skank,sex and dirt..I'm totally biased by what I had been reading about it!!!
Actually Musk Ravageur (which I love!!) has more of the sex and sin I had been expecting to find here...so..go on, use it. I'll start to use it too! If I start getting funny looks, I'll tell ya!!
It depends on how sexual you want to smell at work. I usually just wear it for my own amusement on days off when my partner is at work because he thinks it smells like a homeless person. I do love it, though. I'm in the camp that thinks it smells like men's balls with a light dusting of rosy powder at about mid-afternoon.
Would this be a good clubbing scent? That is the only appropriate thing I can think of!
But I mean, guys..do you really get all that viciousness from this?? Even my mom thinks I smell divine when I wear it, and I'm sure she wouldn't like me to smell like unwashed body parts...

OK my generous MKK sample arrived today with a whole other shebang of glorious goodies , so I was a little weary of trying the infamous MKK . Should I dab just a little on my skin , just have a little sniff from the atomiser . In for a penny in for a pound I thought and whooshed a couple of spritzes on my arm with somewhat carefree abandon .
Sure its a little poopy but not quite the huge shit n ass bomb I was expecting . Its really quite lovely , I applied about 10 or 15 minutes ago and the iddy biddy poopiness has dried down some and its really rather pleasant , salty sweet powdery ( yeah Im no fancy reviewer here ) .... really dont know what these reviewers are on about certainly doesnt smell like pubes to me LOL !!!!1111
MKK has never smelled particularly raunchy to me, just a rather large civet note at first before it's swallowed up by powdery musk, rose, and patchouli. It's nice enough, but it loses its weirdness so quickly I don't find it shocking, and honestly, find it a little dull in the drydown. I really wish I found it more out-there than I do, but I don't.

I'm a big fan of musk, and like Muscs Koublaï Khän a lot. I usually do not wear it to work, mostly because of the raunchiness factor. It is a perfect "club" fragrance, however. If I want to wear musk at work, I tend to layer Kiehl's Original Musk with another fragrance, usually one with a woody character like Gucci Pour Homme. If I'm really lazy that day, I'll just crack out the Jovan Musk for Men and "slum it."
MKK is not really the dirty beast we make it out to be. It is raunchy, yes, but subtle enough, IMO, to wear often. I wear it to work without any qualms.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
To my uncultured and unrefined nose , its no worse than musc ravageur for skankiness ie - not really skanky - which I equally love
The base is a simple, natural amber frag, if you can wait a while before leaving the house.

Rose & patchouli? Really? Wow.
I'm not afraid of or "put off" by many things, but MKK gives me a major overripe cheese or dirty socks vibe. Not sexy or rauchy or sleazy, just stinky -- for the most part. On some of my wears I've gotten that delicious sense of "a yurt filled with hides and burning beeswax candles" that Tania Sanchez describes (I'm paraphrasing) in The Guide.
It's still not my favorite musk, but I've got to try it again. Musc Ravageur is much, much more my speed, and that's a total comfort scent with a hint of sexy funk.
The sample I purchased from the Perfumed Court smell like a petting zoo. Goat Pellets Pour Homme!
There is no love in modern life
There is no hope in modern life
As always with SL it's very skin dependant.On some it will be raunchy and on others not...
I afirm that on my skin it smells like a dry cat pee.
And MKK is the closest recent frag that smells real civet excrement extract.
