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.
Acca Kappa Muschio Bianco
For me: Musk To Musk
Muscs Koublai Khan - Partial notes (the animalics in it):
costus (wet hair)
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.

+1 Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan
it takes a lot of confidence to pull this one off.
I recently fell back in love with Kiehl's Original Musk Oil. The oil version, not the EDT.
"It's not what you look like when you're doing what you're doing; it's what you're doing when you're doing what you look like you're doing."
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.
