    I was going to say MR too. Ill answer at the same time.
    I think its the ombination of other notes (cloves) and high quality ingredients that render it as good as it is.
    I've tried Kiehl's musc and it is good but evaporates in no time.


    Also, A LOT of other perfumes contain musc as a note but more of a support as opposed to the predominant note.

    for swap/sale:

    I guess it's a matter of personal taste. If I'm looking for a musk I generally avoid "clean musks" as I prefer the animalic aspect of the note. Said that MR is more of a dirty vanilla/musc but I still quite like it.

    Muscs Koublai Khan - Partial notes (the animalics in it):

    civet
    castoreum
    costus (wet hair)
    ambergris
    ambrette (musky)
    three kinds of animalic musk


    And there's very little of anything genuinely musky in Musc Ravageur. What's there is soon camouflaged by spices and a heavy woody amber base that has little do with musk. Something like L'Air de Rien is far muskier and a better composition overall. Kiehl's is an uninspiring cheap floral musk with a gallon of ylang, and it isn't a very good composition to begin with.

    I recently fell back in love with Kiehl's Original Musk Oil. The oil version, not the EDT.

    I'm a fan of the clean musk in the drydown of L'Anarchiste.

    Be aware that musk turned to be a descriptor rather than an ingredient. This means musk scents can diverge significantly: for instance, many laundry detergents smells of musk (Unilever's Skip as a matter of fact), as well as Musk Ravageur. So there you get it... they are musk-based compositions without any points in common.

    The rest of the composition can give you an accurate and better idea of how it smells like.
