    Default Anyone else love the opening of Musc Ravageur?

    I have noticed that a lot of people do not like the opening of this fragrance, but love the dry down. I actually LOVE the opening, I love that musky smell, it's actually my favorite part of the fragrance. Anyone else feel the same?

    I don't mind it at all. It is part of the whole Ravageur experience.

    I love the opening more than the drydown.

    Just got this about a month ago. Didnt like it at first. The more and more I wear, the better the opening becomes. I agree that it's all part of the whole experience - dont think it would be as highly revered without its beautiful, distinctive opening. True masterpiece!!

    I actually bought Méharées because of that, and it is worlds apart. Gonna trade it away.

    I think I am the only person that does not care for this fragrance. Maybe I need to give it another try.

    More in the camp "like opening, love drydown"

    I hate the opening, love the drydown. Maybe with time that will change. Not a big fan of heavy musk.

    I love the whole spectrum, from opening-middle-dry down. My most "fun" fragrance to wear.

    Like it. Opening of Cinnamon, clove and musk. Milk chocolate drydown. It's a winner.

    Wasn't wowed by the opening when I wore it, but that was a while ago, so I'll have to give it another shot sometime soon.

    A fragrance with a linear version of MR's beginning would be fantastic. Anyone got any tips?

    It smells like a Cinnabon store.

    Definitely likable, though I'm not drawn to own it.

    +1. My feelings exactly. I bought my bottle blind and when I received my package containing it, I tore it open as I was getting onto the elevator in my building. There happened to be two beautiful girls in the elevator with me and I took the bottle, sprayed it on my wrist and then asked them their opinion. They really were taken by Musc Ravageur!!!

    The thing I love about this scent is that it's a confidence builder for me. Sometimes I'm getting ready to go somewhere and I look at Musc Ravageur and think "I don't know... I love this one, but I don't know if I've got what it takes to pull it off today."

    But much like the way Captain Morgan ads show people drinking Captain Morgan and turning into pirates, I always feel that Musc Ravageur turns me into a stereotypical cliché of a Frenchman all the way-- and I love it. I have fun walking around like an over-the-top Pepé Le Pew. It's not my usual Modus Operandi, but I find Musc Ravageur helps me make that occasional cameo as the Danielle Steele cover model guy who is always two seconds from ripping off his shirt.

    It's a relatively banal extended drydown, some civet and animalic musk would give it a lot more character (among other things). And the possibility of using quantities of real Mysore sandalwood (it's restricted) would have also given it far more complexity. Hard for gaiac wood to make up for it even though I love gaiac wood.

    But yeah, I love the first thirty minutes, and I like the fragrance a lot. Oh_Hedgehog's description of MR as a "Jicky Mousse" is a great one.

    Love to use it as a room spray as well (spray it on the bed mainly, smells great). It's been my girlfriend's favorite fragrance to wear for years, and I definitely like to wear it, too. It's great with a little cigarette smoke on top.
