    Default Musk and beyond

    hey yall:

    I love all things musk and i know there are several musk threads, but i was wondering if you all could take a look at my selections and give input on what else i might like based upon what i own:

    Kiehls musk(like it)
    MKK(love it)
    Helmut lang for men(love it)
    CB Musk Reinvention(not so much)
    Narcisso Rod musc for him(like it)

    I have tried Miller Harris l'air de rien and like it too...any more that are not necessarily "musk" but have a nice musk vibe? thanks peeps!
    Current Top 5:

    Tabac, Cardinal, Brookes Brothers, Musc Kublai Khan, Andron

    I haven't tried all of the above musks, but if you like clean musks I can recommend:
    Narciso Rodriguez Musc For Him Oil
    Nasomatto Silver Musc

    Those are my favourite musks, but I also like Kiehl's.

    My introduction to musk in 1979 was with the 70s (Bonne Bell) incarnation of today's Prince Matchabelli Skin Musk Oil. A beautiful and (at least then) powerful white musk.

    Yes it is, but I prefer their Black Musk Gazelle, which is stronger and funkier than their White Musk. It is more along the lines of Ajmal's extremely animalic AA Black Musk Gazelle, but ASAQ's version is a bit lighter, cleaner, and more refined, as well as being considerably more expensive.

    BTW, in case anyone doesn't know, ASAQ is an anagram for Abdul Samad Al-Qurashi, the Saudi perfume house.

    First of all there is musk and there is white musk

    I prefer white musk smells clean and laundry type of freshness

    Imo musks are excellent choice as a base for fragrance since it melts with the skin, stays sublte soft, clean and warm,
    no metallic residue like some mineral based (marine) fragrances or cedar sometimes.

    Best ever white musk based fragrances are imo (of course)

    Gendarme V and

    Ete en Douce by L'Artisan
