    Default New Scent: Kiehl's 160th Anniversary Limited Edition Musk Eau de Toilette Spray

    I just saw this on the Nordstrom website:

    This modern version of the classic signature scent is based on the unique blend that is Kiehl's Musk. The special Musk 'recipe' begins with an initial creamy, fresh citrus burst of bergamot, nectar and orange blossom followed by a soft floral bouquet of rose, lily, ylang-ylang and neroli. Finally, Original Musk Eau de Toilette dries down to a warm, sensual oriental finish of tonka nut, white patchouli and, of course, musk, the soul of this distinctively modern scent.
    1.7 oz.By Kiehl's.

    The bottle looks the same but with a different label. The notes don't sound all that different, but I get the impression that this is a different scent. The price-- as always-- is pretty good. I was just wearing the regular EDT a few days ago and enjoying the comfort of its funkiness. Hopefully somebody can check this out and do a review of how it's different from the original EDT.

    I'm pretty sure this was one of the ones I tried yesterday at Nordstroms. Personally wasn't impressed.

    Thanks - I will look for it next time I'm in Nordstrom.

    I've been way into the oil concentration of Kiehl's Musk lately, and find the original EDT a bit too sharply floral. The notes do sound almost exactly the same, but maybe (hopefully) they managed to smooth out that big ol' floral attack and blend it better with the musk.

    I keep meaning to check out their musk, but looking at the notes here, it seems pretty much underwhelming.

    I just went to the Kiehl's website. The above description is for the regular Kiehl's Musk EDT. Here's the ad copy for the 160th Anniversary version:

    Developed by a distant cousin, a Russian Prince, of the founding family and was originally deemed “too sensual” for the times. Discovered in a vat in 1958 labeled “love potion”.

    I am not a fan of the original, but I have always wanted to like it. Maybe this new re-work will impress me.

    I'm getting the feeling this one is not available at regular Kiehl's stores - anyone know?

    I just purchased it thinking it was the same as the regular edt spray, which is a staple, but also thought it might be something a bit different...I'm not really sure if kiehls is just marketing it with tht different tag line, which I found interesting, or if it's a new frag. Couldn't thermos e easily introduced it as the same thing in a collectors bottle, which by the way is the same price as the edt. So I am confused too

    Looks like it's just an anniversary new label, nothing more.

    Maybe if they took out the fresh citrus burst of bergamot, nectar and orange blossom followed by a soft floral bouquet of rose, lily, ylang-ylang and neroli it could be worthy of been called a MUSK fragrance.lol

    This smells completely different on drydown to me...the top notes smell almost exactly the same but the dry down smells more like jovan musk than the original kiehls edt...either it's different or kiehls redormulated their original musk

    My only experience with Kiehl's musk was with the body lotion. I picked up the limited edition EDT blindly, and it smells exactly the same as the lotion.

    Is it EDT or oil? I went to Norstrom's website and although item description says EDT the photo is that a bottle of oil. Then I went to Selfridges and Harrod's websites and they both say oil, with the same picture.
