    Default Muscs Koublai Khan - Safe for Work?

    Hi,

    Would you consider Muscs Koublai Khan to be a safe fragrance to wear to work? The reviews I've read suggest that it has animalic/fecal notes so this makes me think that it would be somewhat controversial to say the least. I've only tested it from a wax sample, it smelt nice and there were no dirty notes in the wax sample. Just ordered a full bottle which will hopefully be with me in the next few days/weeks. I am interested in knowing that is there anyone here who actually wears it to work?

    Thanks.

    If you work as a construction worker or as prime minister of the league of manly men, sure.

    Wait until colder weather comes, then wear a small dose of it under a couple of layers of clothing. Like this: sparingly apply to bare chest/neck/wrist, then don your singlet then shirt then a sweater. You thus contain your sillage the first few times you trot this scent out in public rather than come on like a crop duster.

    I wear it all the time to work, but I have zero respect for my co-workers, so I couldn't tell you if it is safe or not!

    It would certainly be safe if you work in a wastewater-treatment center.
    Other work venues would be questionable.

    On skin, it does mellow out quite a bit, but it remains resolutely animalic. You might be one of the people who is slightly anosmic to certain musks, but other people will pick them up.

    I love it, but it might be hard to pull it off at work, and I never wear it there. As Jardanel was saying, a small amount could work in the winter if you wear suits - the impression will be just body warmth. But definitely not in the summer, when the civet can scream out. In general, I would reserve MKK for leisurely endeavors and nights out. And encounters of various degrees of intimacy, should your partner enjoy it.

    I would say that MKK is not safe for ANY occasions.. It`s more a work of art than a fragrance to wear.

    I have never smelled MKK but am about to slather it on from a sample. Wish me luck!

    Update: the kick in the teeth must come later because thus far the opening is quite nice.

    I would say definitely not. You'll probably get some weird stares for sure with this one.

    I think so if worn lightly. 1, 2 sprays at most.

    I think the name of this one is much much more hardcore than the scent.

    I'm one of those people that don't smell the 'fecal' note in MKK, and I love the stuff.

    However I've had three different women smell it, and two said it was vile. Hence, I wouldn't be wearing it to the office.
    I'm sure there will be at least one person who will dislike the odour.

    GOOD GOD NO!

    A few years ago, I read about a website devoted to the SNES game Shaq Fu. The website said it was the worst video game of all time and was so bad it was unworthy to exist, and offered to buy any and all copies of the game from anyone for the sole purpose of destroying them and eradicating the world of Shaq Fu once and for all.

    The point being, that's how I feel about MKK. The rankest of the rank.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    As a lover of MKK I would say it is not a work safe scent.

    Only appropriate in the men's room. This stuff is butt juice in a bottle.

    If you can wear stuff like Kouros or Musc Ravageur to work then MKK would not be a problem since to my noise it is a floral fragrance with some human smell on top
