    Default Just blind bought Muscs Koublai Khan...

    I have bought another fragrance blindly.
    Sold a couple of bottles earlier today, and used the 20% off
    code at Parfum1 to order this bad boy for $100.

    I have a bad habit of doing this. Especially when I've been
    drinking, late at night, and when I have some spare PayPal
    cash to spend.

    Anyway...what should I expect from this bad boy?
    I've read all the reviews, and it sounds great.

    Great purchase. And very brave of you. If you've read the reviews, you know what to expect: the reference powerful musky-civety. But if you own Kouros, you should be set to go (mind you, it doesn't smell similar to Kouros. For one thing, it doesn't have the clean part of Kouros. It's just the musk)

    I am told by someone who would know that the top is like the smell you get when you smoke crack. (I have no first hand experience of this smell, so I cannot confirm.) To me, it just smells like a wonderfully dirty musk. I love it.

    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier

    Thanks for the feedback guys.
    I usually roll my eyes when I see new threads like this.
    I don't know, I guess it's just nice to hear some reassuring
    feedback when you make a blind buy like this.
    I really think I will enjoy this one, and if I don't, I'm sure
    someone would be glad to take it off my hands at a discount.

    My recent blind buys have been very good for the most part,
    and I guess that is still a big part of the hobby for me:
    the thrill of the blind buy.

    Great purchase. You should expect a terrific (close to the skin) animalic musk!

    HAHA, I know how this works all to well. MKK is different, but it is a good scent. You will not want to wear it everyday, but when it is time to wear it you can not beat it. I am glad I have a bottle, but it only gets used abour once a month or so. Enjoy the MKK....it has a very cool name too.

    MKK is a great scent but not for everyone. I would recommend a sample first, but it's a brave blind buy.

    Enjoy this musky scent.

    I blind bought two bottles of this years ago, one for me and one for my dad. I love it, but to honest I don't really wear as often as I should, as I'm only a 1/4 of way through it. My dad on the other hand went through his bottle in 6 months and demanded another one for Christmas. He loves it!

    Where do you buy your punani? Walmart or The Home Depot?

    Nope. Unless you ate a bouquet of flowers and licked a civet's rear the night before. MKK smells nothing at all like morning breath.
    It's not too brave of a blind buy, MKK is similar to Opium and old school women's masterpiece fragrances which balance out florals with animalic.

    Just wanted to give a quick update:

    I received MKK about noon today, but...I got
    my bottle of Divine L'homme Sage about 10 this morning as well,
    and I decided to make it my SOTD.

    I sprayed Muscs Koublai Khan on a piece of paper as soon as I got it,
    the opening was what some might consider "challenging" but, being a fan
    of Kouros, Ungaro II, and other animalic scents, I wasn't dismayed at all.
    About 2 hours later, I checked the paper again, and MKK had developed
    beautifully into the musky, honeyed rose scent that so many describe.
    Really, really nice.

    As I am typing now, I am wearing MKK as my scent before bed, and I
    really like it. The only drawback I see so far, and it could be a big one
    for me, is that it's very much a close to the skin scent. I am not getting
    much projection at all, but I knew that going in, as many reviewers stated
    that it was a close to the skin scent.

    So, in summary, I think this was a good blind buy for me.
    I don't think it's nearly as animalic or "challenging" as most people make
    it out to be. I don't get any fecal notes at all. All I can detect is some
    civet in the opening and heart, but then again, I don't have the most
    refined nose.

    As an aside, I got samples of MPG Eau des Iles, Fougere Royale, Cologne Pour le Soir
    and Absolue Pour le Soir from Luckyscent. ALL OF THOSE, are full bottle worthy,
    but I absolutely can't afford all of them.

    And also, Divine L'homme Sage is a masterpiece. Wore it today and it is wonderful.

    People say Kiehl's Musk Oil is similar but Kiehl's smells like a skunk to me. MKK is a gorgeous floral musk.
