    +1.

    This comes up fairly often if you want to search the archives. They are not similar.

    Musc Ravageur would be my choice.

    mkk does not smell like an anus.
    and if it does smell like a certain one, I wouldn't mind smelling like an anus which smells great.

    Cool Re: Musk Koublai Khan or Musc Ravageur?

    For me Musc Ravageur starts off sweet and feminine but after a while it gets more butch. I prefer it on women. This, as always, is simply my humble, subjective and infallible opinion. Anyway, I gave the bottle away to an old flame. What the hell I owed her one, she helped break off my marriage.
    It gets lots of love here on the male forum, and I'm happy for those who love it and can pull it off.


    As to MKK Luca Turin called it " hippie oil." And I don't think he meant it as a compliment. i concur but I, like, dig it man!!

    Here's what a true genius had to say on the BN reviews about MKK:

    " Hey, what happened to my last review? Was it deleted in cyberspace due to references of Tarzan and Jane doing the wild thing while wearing MKK in their jungle treehouse?

    ( I hope I didn't suggest Cheeta for a menage a trois )

    Say, has anyone thus far mentioned that this is a 'dirty' musk which comes off as animalistic, sexy and sweaty?

    I'm not a fan of the BN adored SL, but this is the exception.

    Well, as the philosopher said:

    Musc Ravageur without a doubt. It's more sexy, masculine and just better smelling. MKK smells like rose with baby powder in my opinion.

    Holy cow! I got a sample of MR and I love it. Controversy aside, I need to find a way to afford this...or find a split or decant.

    Same here. It's probably going to be my next full bottle purchase.

    Then again, MKK has been beckoning me for a while as well...

    MR is easy to like compared to MKK and it does have strong projection and sillage.

    I own and love them both, but MR gets the nod for being easier to wear.

    You REALLY need to smell them both, and give them at least a half an hour to develop before you decide. When you go to Barney's, head straight downstairs to the perfume section. Your nose will be immediately assaulted by a miasma of different perfumes and will get tired very quickly. The MR and MKK are located very near each other on the sampling counter. Have the sales assistant spray one wrist with MR and the other with MKK. Forget about the sample strip, as it is not representative of what either of these monster fragrances will smell like on your skin. Give your wrists a quick sniff, then WALK OUT OF BARNEYS. Walk up to Central Park and back. Then, after about half an hour or so, smell your wrists again. Don't buy based upon your initial impression.

    The opinions on these two fragrances vary tremendously; especially MKK. I've found that my nose and taste are often wildly divergent from those of other basenoters. Regarding these two fragrances, I dislike them equally, but if I had to choose one, it would be Musc Ravageur. To my nose, MKK is disgusting for the first half hour, then gets a little better in the dry down. I cannot fathom myself ever wearing it.

    I think it is wonderful that there are so many fragrances to choose from out there and we all have divergent tastes!

    I have MKK and love it, but I find it stays closer to the skin for me. MR on the other hand seems to have better projection. Dirty? Not for me. Vanilla. cloves, cinnamon and spices. A very spicy and somewhat sweet fragrance that is much more of a spice bomb than Spicebomb. (This is more what I expected from Spicebomb which is a nice fragrance that smells more like an expensive soap to me.) MKK is something a bit dirtier but I always get quite a bit of rose and amber along with a nice civet. For a dirty fragrance, I go to Dior Leather Oud.

    I used to like MR a good deal. But I tired of it; somehow it started to smell ultra synthetic to me.

    I still like MKK, so that is my vote.

    I wouldn´t blind buy any of them. Two edgy concotions. Make sure to try them both, MORE THAN ONCE.

    MR reminds me of an old lady buttered dirty cloved vanilla. Something in it brings me Shalimar to mind.

    MKK reminds me of sweating after sex in a hot night on a works day you´ve missed the morning shower. Picturing the image is really nice, but wouldn´t want to smell like this.

    If I was FORCED to choose, I would pick the MR.

    If you're new-ish to Muscs like I am, they can be a lot to handle. Musc Ravageur for sure, MKK smells like an elephant died and shit itself. Again, I only feel that way because I'm under-educated.

    Neither. I like APLS every once in a while though.
