    Default MUSK question, Monsieur Musk/Jovan Musk/Royall Musk

    Jovan & Royall's musk scents make me quesy while Monsieur Musk is great.

    Why is there such a big difference?

    I would think Jovan and Royall's "Musk" would be closer to Monsieur Musk.
    Has anyone out there actually taken a whiff of REAL-honest-to-goodness musk from an animal's glands?

    Any cheap or mid-level "musk" scent come close to the real thing?

    Never have smelled an animals loins but I have smelled many versions of musk...I have royal and jovan..royal is very powdery barbershop, jovan is straight up 70s...I would recommend mkk and untitled no 8 for very musky animalic frags

    If you're asking if there are any cheap musks that smell like poo.. I can't think of any off the top of my head. All of the Jovan's smell pretty synthetic, and lack that real poopy accord.

    The cheapest is probably Alyssa Ashley, but it smells like laundry detergent. I second MKK and perhaps Musc Ravageur--a little expensive, but given the quality of what you get, the +/- $100 price tag is reasonable. Lorenzo Villoresi Musk is quite nice and very rosy. I think for what you are looking for here, nothing beats Kiehls Musk.

    +1. Actually smells as dirty as MKK and over a longer period of time, all at a relatively low price.

    Monsieur Musk and Royall Muske are not true musks, but musky barbershop frags. Jovan, as much as i love it, is quite "synthetic".
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    A third recommendation for Kiehls Musk here. Slightly, body smell within...

    I'm a big fan of kiehls but it's so body chem dependent
