    Amazing fragrance! It is my scent of the day. It is true that is a very polarizing fragrance. Some women have loved the fragrance while others have found it to be too much. I have been a huge fan of this fragrance since the first time I sampled it up until now. I usually do not like heavy musk fragrances but this one is a winner IMHO!

    +1 ... the opening is an integral springboard for the dark journey that follows ...

    Glad to see that I'm not the only one. All these fragrances are going to drive me to the poor house

    I wore this for the first time in probably years. Never loved it. But today I realize it's something special, especially the opening. Truly great stuff. I've purchased a lot of bottles over the last six years, since I really got into fragrance. And it always amazes me how my tastes evolve. Many times, I've put a bottle on the shelf thinking it was just okay only to take it down at some later date and think I must have been crazy the first time or two I tried it. Same thing has happened in reverse unfortunately. It's one of the reasons I'm reluctant to sell fragrances I'm not crazy about -- give it some time and I may come around.

    mmmh, I reveived a free MR sample along with my VE Sample I ordered.
    I tried the MR and had to wash it away immediately. It was too sweet and to overwhelming.

    Even after i washed it away i still could smell the cinnamon & vanilla on my wrist.
    What else is there in MR? Did I miss something ?

    IMO not what a man is supposed to smell like

    At first I wasn't too crazy about the opening but now I love it, this one takes you on quite a journey, I get chocolate and vanilla I'm the drydown with a hint of musk. An absolute masterpiece...

    At first, in my younger introduction to niche fragrances, I hated it. Found it to be offensively bad. HOWEVER, after some time, and smelling 100's more niche scents...I am growing to love it more and more. It's a masterpiece. And like art, it often takes a measure of maturity and age to appreciate the finer things.

    Musc Ravageur is one of lifes finer things.

    Believe it!

    Worship the beginning, but I'm very unsure about the dry down. I really don't want to smell that sweet and vanilla'ish, and this is really bothering me and what's been stopping me from getting a bottle. I might still pull the trigger, but I'm really unsure. I've yet to meet ANYONE that actually liked the sweet vanilla dry down on me :/ Especially girls seem to recoil in horror when I've wore a sample or stolen a spray from a friend. Ho-hum ...

    Initially I didn't care for the opening. Tried it about a year later, and loved every second of it.

    Im not gonna lie , when i first tried this i expected the opening to be harsh because of all the talk it gets about the opening and to wait for the drydown etc... When i first sniffed it, i had to check my sample and make sure they sent me the right one. There was nothing harsh at all about the opening to me. It smelled pleasant. Maybe its just my nose, but i dont understand why people say "once you get past the opening, then youll love it"

    If anyone feels this way about MR, give Mazzolari Lui a try. It's the Hulk versus MR's David Banner.
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??
